Dick Greyson (aka Andrew Grey) has dumped this Christmas gift on us, winked, and leaves us to our raised-eyebrow senses. Assassin Brick is just too cool and structured to be brought up short by targeted victim Robin, who is sweet and unassuming and plays Santa Claus for orphans.
Well, it works. It's sweet, funny, and eventually very seriously hot. A wonderful accompaniment to a mug of egg-nog, seriously laced with rum. Glug, glug--yum, yum.
There wasn't any particular part of the story that stood out for me, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. A quick feel good read.
Definitely one of the more unusual meetings I've read, an assassin paid to kill Santa. What these two find with each other is what the holidays are all about: hope. Such a great addition to my holiday library and another great new author find.
Brick is a gun for hire. He was born into it, or at least the Army trained him to be one. He's really good at his job. He puts his whole being into it and he never misses. He's precise and neat and he never leaves loose ends. So, when he's following Robin, his latest contract, he notices Robin is different from his other victims. He delves deeper into Robin and finds out that Robin has been played as a patsy. Instead of letting it go, he decides to dish out Justice.
Brick and Robin spend a lot of time together. Brick questions Robin and decides to protect him at the same time. Robin decides to do some questioning of his own and brings some needed Christmas cheer into Brick's life.
The ending is great. We witness Brick's method of bringing justice for Robin and the wonderful happy ending they both deserve. It's sweet and heartwarming and full of Christmas cheer.
I loved this book. Dirk Greyson is an excellent author and his books are always good and this one does not let me down.
The plot is great. An assassin who has so finely-tuned his craft over the years and who has hardened himself that he doesn't even feel the cold from snow, gets his heart softened by this Santa who's full of The Christmas Spirit and who sees the good in everything. Even in an assassin.
I also loved it when Brick dished out justice for Robin. That was an exciting scene.
Robin and Brick are really perfect for each other. They have a lot in common, from their childhood, and they're opposites, but so compatible. They're really good for each other.
For a short story, a one day read, it really is complete. It flows like spiked eggnog at a party. There's a solid beginning, middle, and end.
The ending was perfect and sweet. You could bake Christmas cookies with it. It really was a beautiful happy ending.
I highly recommend this book. If you want a great one-day Christmas Story, this is the one for you.
I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Robin Marvington’s life is so dreary that when Brick shows up at his door with news that he has been hired to kill him, Robin would probably accept the bullet for breakfast. Together, the two of them set out to find out who wants Robin dead, and why. Somewhere along the way the lines between would be target and killer blur, and the two become lovers. Yes, you guessed it, this cannot end well.
Oh happy day! I just loved every little thing about this book. Two men, total opposites, drawn into each other’s lives like magnets. The push and pull was like watching a tennis match and Robin gave his big, burly, former almost killer turned bodyguard and possible companion just as good as he got. I was so engrossed in this story that when I read ‘the end’ I shrieked. I did not want it to end. There is the mystery aspect… who hired Brick, and why? Some suspense… will they figure it out before whomever it was figures out that Brick isn’t following through, and hires someone else? Oh and the Alpha male alert… Brick is sex on a stick, I’m just saying.
If you are looking for a great Holiday read that isn’t all hearts and flowers, carolers singing out in the snow, then this is the story for you. Fast paced and intense, well written and well worth a read.

4 Santa stars!! This was such a surprisingly fun read!! It was so much more exciting and fun than I thought!
Brick is a hired assassin and he’s good at what he does. His next assignment on the list is to kill Santa Claus, well a man,Robin, who plays Santa Claus at an orphanage. This assignment hits a little too close to home for Brick since he grew up in an orphanage. But the further into the assignment he goes, he realizes that Robin may be being set up. And while he’s investigating this Robin and Brick start to develop a relationship and feelings start getting involved. Will Brick figure all this out before it’s too late??
This was such a great, fun book!!! I really loved this book. Not a disappointment at all!!
