ARC Review ~ Kissing My Killer by Helena Newbury


Kissing My Killer 600x900

He was sent to kill me. So why can’t I resist his touch?

A full-length standalone Russian Mafia romance with no cliffhanger.

I know I should be afraid of him. He’s huge. Powerful. Cold as ice.

But when he looks into my eyes, he can’t pull the trigger. And the way he gazes at me makes me weak.

Now we’re on the run together. They say he’s a monster, but I’ve glimpsed the person inside.

The man sent to kill me is the only one who can save me…and I might be the only one who can save him.

Review Cup

Kissing My Killer is my favorite Helena Newbury book to date. I love it more than even Lying and Kissing (which was fabulous and you need to read asap, but back to the matter at hand).

Character breakdown:

Alexei, the Sexy Russian mafia enforcer.
Yeah, I want an Alexei for my birthday. This Hero is powerful, sexy, predatory (in many ways), mulit-dimensional, broken (the best kind of hero IMO), and protective. I was blown away with his development throughout the entire book. Newbury hit the nail firmly on the head when she created this guy. I felt every single one of his emotions, I cheered for him, I wept for him, I wanted to scream at him… no matter what was going on, I was connected to Alexei on a deep level.

Gabriella, the timid hacker.
I. Love. This. Woman. Gabriella has awesome techie skills I would kill for, and while her past (and parts of her present) are heartbreaking, Newbury constantly pushes this character to overcome obstacle after obstacle (many of them being herself). Every snippet we get regarding Gabriella’s history left me fearful of the big reveal, but holy hell… I was not prepared. I cried. Well, on the inside, I’m not very teary outwardly. But crap! It was HUGE!!!!

Plot breakdown:
Enforcer is sent to kill hacker. Insta-love (and not the cheesy BS kind) makes that impossible. They end up on the run.

That’s all you’re gettin’ from me.

Nitty-gritty, down and dirty…

Kissing My Killer is my favorite Helena Newbury book to date. Sexy accents, daring heroics, well developed and written story-line, and characters you cannot help but root for make this a must read.
