Editorial Reviews


"Something about this book just sucked me in and refused to let go from the very first chapter. Way more than I expected and I love it when that happens!" - 4.5 out of 5 Hoots - Nocturne Romance Reads

"April Brookshire integrated murder, love, and deceit in a highly unique and refreshing way into the Young-Adult genre." - Sizzling Reads

"I love the intensity of this story and it has some of the most hair pulling twists that I have ever experienced with a book! It takes you on one hell of a ride!" - 5 Good Nite Kisses - Nightly Reading

"I love this novel with its kick-ass assassin and its wild roller coaster ride of a romance. So this story for me was real to who the characters are and has a fantastic storyline. Gabriel and Anna's romance is hilarious and deadly, but it is a beautiful one and I loved it. Young Love Murder is definitely a romantic adventure and one I highly recommend as a must read." - 5 HEARTS!!!!! - I Heart YA Books

This was an oddly intriguing read, I don’t even know how to rate it. It definitely had a premise I hadn’t encountered often before in YA - teenage world-class assassins. A lot of shooting, killing, betrayal, love and mountain-fulls of angsty angst. Come to think of it, this book isn’t really for people under 17 with all the blood and sexy times, but at the same time this wasn’t a topic heavy, dark or depressing read either, which I can appreciate.

Basic gist: Anna, the tough, talented and gorgeous assassin is sent to take out Gabriel’s, the sexy, spoiled and confident hunk’s, father, who’s a big shot criminal. What happens happens, and Gabriel and Anna fall in love with lots of emotional turmoil following, since Anna is good at her job and does the deed despite her involvement with the mob’s son. One chases the other thought the wide world and a big tug war beings with once Gabriel being cold and murderous towards Anna and then the other way around. Their relationship has a lot of issues I think should be addressed to a shrink. Nevertheless, love is love and those two are crazy for each (there are some adorable scenes which I really enjoyed).

The humor at times was genius, totally made me chuckle. The banter between the main couple and Jackson (one of my favorite characters, a sexy dork) and the fourth, who I’m not going to mention here, was hilarious, snarky, teasing and exactly to the embarrassing “pain” points. The dialogue in general was decent too, but there was a considerable emphasis on description and Anna and Gabriel’s (whose points of view the book consisted of, them taking turns) thoughts, views and emotions.

What I wasn’t really fond of was the constant talk of intense, passionate and soul mate kind of love between Anna and Gabriel.

I love this book because the girl is the defender, weapons specialized, race car driver type deal. I love it when it's the woman who is scarier than the man. I loved how it was the female keeping secrets as an assassin and secretly falling in love instead of the typical situation where the male is in that position. This book was very suspenseful and had a lot of foreshadowing, and yeah it was dramatic but in one of the best ways possible. The author focused on the moral/problem that makes the story worth the time and money, she focused on a serious situation where feelings only cause problems and get in the way, but those feelings are inevitable. Being an assassin hired to take out the bad people in the world is dangerous but falling in love only makes it worse. When Annabelle uses the son, (Gabriel Sanchez) to gain access to the target's (Xavier Sanchez) house, she figures this will be like the typical get in, make the kill, get out job but that plan seems far fetched when she starts falling for him. She tries to keep her head straight but she can't seem to get around the feelings between her and Gabriel. One tragic night can change everything...
Gabriel has found the one girl who is everything he's ever wanted, and he's falling head over heels for Anna (Annabelle) the new girl, who is as mysterious as she is beautiful. One night will change his life forever. Once seeking Anna's undivided love, now that is no longer his top priority, or that's what he continues to tell himself. Now he seeks vengeance, an eye for an eye, a life for a life. When he finds her he's conflicted by the emotions in his head: kill her or keep her.
After Gabriel catches up to Anna, she knows she has to stay strong and not follow her heart, after all romantic love is dangerous for an assassin.

This book from start to finish is meant to be over the top. Annabelle and her brother Jackson have for a long time been trained as assassins, the family business. I found that Annabelle was likeable enough and her brother was the necessary comic relief throughout, but overall the book lacks the umph! that should come from a tale about a brother and sister assassin team.

Annabelle is assigned a `target' and quickly inserts herself into the life of said target. While she is in Florida, she of course, falls for the targets hot son, Gabriel. And let me just say, Gabriel is not a womanizer (like many reviews have said) but a typical teenage boy in my book. Gabriel finds women to be expendable and used for a good time, but he meets his match in Annabelle, who does not fall for him at first sight but decides to play the game and win him over so he is falling over himself for her. I liked the building of their relationship and it is no doubt the center of the book.

Love and murder is something that does not go hand and hand and it is flushed out well in this book- if not a little too much. While the entire premise of the book is fiction, I found that even certain things happened that were just borderline ridiculous. I will not give anything away, but once it had to do with weapons and once with the relationship between Gabriel and Annabelle. The traveling, the fighting, the abilities, I get that but a few things that I would consider part of the glue to the story were not done well and left me kinds like what the?!

Overall, it was a fast read about romance between two people from very different worlds. I need more reality and a little less of the outrageous.

I found the minor characters enjoyable and I look forward to reading Jackson's tale, because I want to see him get his.
