When I gave up life as a hitman, I thought everything was going to be better. I was going to become a PI, help people, and live normally… and then I met Jeremy, the most perfect man to have ever saved my life (I mean, he might be the only one who has saved my life, but he’s still the best at it). From that point on, it was all over for me—I knew we were meant to be. The issue is that he doesn’t… quite seem to realize that. But when he’s targeted by criminals (literally, someone just shot at his head), he needs to rely on someone, so why not me? He might not know about my past as a hitman or that I don’t need to be protected, but I’m prepared to do everything I can to save the day.

When my past comes back with a vengeance, I’ve never felt so alone and out of my element. That is, until Cassel offers me information that I desperately need, forcing me to drag him straight into danger. The issue is that he’s too sweet and innocent for this world and I’m not sure that I’m strong enough to protect him, but I can’t bring myself to push him away. As truths come to light, I realize that maybe Cassel isn’t quite who I thought he was, and maybe we’re not so different after all.

While you can read The Former Assassin’s Guide on its own, you’ll get maximum enjoyment by reading The Hitman’s Guide series first. This book contains speedy car chases and not-so-speedy ATV rides, a wager Cassel is determined to win even if it kills him, and way-too-tight sparkly spandex suits. 


Fans of the Hitman series, we finally have Cassel’s book!! I’ve been shipping him with Jerebear fo a long time and this book was so much fun!

Loved the chemistry between Cassel and Jeremy and I’m glad we finally get to know Jeremy quite well. He’s grumpy on the outside but such a marshmallow on the inside. This book is packed with action and humor and I really loved all their shenanigans.

Ofcourse we have more of Leland and Jackson and I really enjoyed their group dynamics. And poor Henry is just so fed up with the whole lot of them!

This is a spinoff and can be read as a standalone but I’d highly recommend reading the previous for maximum enjoyment.
