There are a couple of surprising moments throughout this book for me. Although I felt I should have seen one of them coming lol. I can't wait to hear more from Leland and Jackson! Thank you for another great book Alice!! 😍😍
I'd definitely recommend this to m/m romance readers who want to have a lighthearted book that will have them laughing and their kindles heating up, but don't want any angst or deeper adult moments. I look forward to reading more in this series.
Why? You want to find out how the 39-year-old somewhat reserved ex-army man Jackson is going to overcome the disruptions and completely bizarre verbal spouts thrown his (and our) way by one of the most totally unique (and inappropriate) characters you will ever meet, the 27-year-old hired assassin The Sandman, aka Leland.
Despite at least a dozen serious eyeball rolls from your correspondent, I kept going for two main reasons: Leland is a complete hoot and very, very funny; and author Winters gives us at least a half dozen plotlines to keep us, and Jackson, up with Leland.
In general, I have no complains except (as is my wont) the cover. Who is that on the cover? That is definitely not Leland (who has to be on the cover of the sequel, take a look), and nowhere in the book is Jackson described as looking like the guy there. Sometimes I wish publishers would actually get artists to read the book, or to show the art to the author.
But you can still read the book and rock.
I don't even know where to start...
If you've read the In Darkness series by Alice Winters you know she can write some fun and crazy characters. Well, Leland is Felix, but to the nth degree. Was he over the top? Uh, yeah. Did I want him to rein himself in at certain points? No doubt. Did I wonder how Jackson managed not to do bodily harm to him? For sure. He really is quite ridiculous.
But OMG, Leland was just so fun and sweet and endearing, and my heart hurt for him a little, that I couldn't help falling in love with him, craziness and all. He's such a contradiction- this calm, collected hitman on one hand, this wacky and outlandish guy on the other. Leland's definitely one of those characters you'll either love or hate, and I'm firmly in the love camp. I want more.
The Hitman's Guide was such an engaging story. I don't think there was a minute that I wasn't completely entertained. Except maybe the few scenes with Jackson's mother- yeah, I was more irritated than entertained during those moments. But other than that, this story kept me turning the pages.
And seriously, Jackson deserves to be sainted for the way he handled and put up with Leland and all his antics. But I loved how he cared about Leland, and how much Leland wanted to belong. Even with all the silliness and absurd goings-on, you could just tell these two were meant to be.
This will definitely be on reread rotation, and I really can't wait to hear it in audio!
Top international reviews
I read reviews on this book and was almost not going to get it. In my opinion there was no way it was as funny as people reviews made it out to be!
I was WRONG, so wrong.
Im not afraid to admit it. You NEED to read this book. I was smiling from ear to ear. Pulling different parts out to tell my collegues and O/H.
I adore Leland. He is just brilliant. The storyline is funny, characters are brilliant. It was my introduction to Alice Winters and if her other books are similar, Im gonna be in so much pain from laughing
The hitman's guide to making friends and finding love was fun hilarious action packed hot intense beautiful powerful and incredible
I was so excited to see what was going to happen from page to page
Leland and Jackson had me on the edge of my seat at times I did not want to put the book down
I can't wait to see what will happen next with Jackson and leland's journey
I recommend the sequel to this too.
I love that they finally found their balance, and got to the bottom of the mystery facing them. Definitely quite a few little twists I didn't see coming.
I look forward to reading more in this series, and the writing style has intrigued me enough to look up other works by this author.
Leland and Jackson just play off each other so well. I was laughing from the very first page. There are so many things in this book. From Leland’s courting techniques at the beginning to the Flying Squirrel near the end of the book. Not to mention everything in between.
I’m so glad this is the first in a series and can not wait for the next instalment.
Highly recommend this comedy/action book
The pace was great, the characters interesting and not just one dimensional. Though Leland is snarky and funny he also has depth. Can’t wait to read more!
