Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent…and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help―a woman with even more secrets than Blue.

Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breeched her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now, he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe—even though he’d rather die than live without her…


5 Stars

 The ladies at the blog all know that I love Gena Showalter.  Out of my personal library she has the biggest shelf and it’s growing every bookstore trip.   Out of all of her books I had a special love for the first book of the Otherworld assassin series Last Kiss Goodnight.  Aliens, black ops, wounded warriors, and strong heroines; this series has it all.  While this book could be read as a stand alone I highly recommend that it be read in order; as characters are reoccurring and plot does carry through.

Corbin Blue is the whole package; and his boss knows it.  Blue is used to seduce for recon and is a man whore in his public life because of it.  He loves his job, both black ops and football and seems to be on top of the world; and than he meets a woman he can’t get out of his head.  Evie is the only woman off limits as his bosses daughter and he would never do anything to put that relationship at risk until he starts spending time with her and she finds a way into his heart.

Evie knows Blues reputation and will not let herself become another one night stand.  Being put together to find her father and his friends after an explosion; Evie must un-retire from her black ops life and work with Blue.

Young adult, sci-fi, paranormal, etc: Gena Showalter can write it all and I have loved every book.  Black and Blue in particular is arresting from chapter one and is very hard to put down for anything.

All the opinions in this review are my own.  I bought this book for my personal collection.  The description and image come from Gena Showalter’s website which can be found by clicking on the image.  Happy reading!
