Book Description

July 22, 2013
The New York Times bestselling Elemental Assassin series continues with a new e-novella—from the hero’s point of view! Owen Grayson is bound and determined to get Gin back...if her enemies don’t get her first.When you have a history of dating an assassin, a night out on the town can turn deadly—fast. Owen Grayson is still wracked with guilt over the end of his love affair with Gin Blanco, and there aren’t enough gin and tonics in all of Ashland to ease his heartache. But when Gin happens to show up at the same nightclub, he isn’t the only one hoping to get her alone. Some shadowy figures will do anything to take down the Spider, Gin’s assassin alter ego, and Owen will do anything to protect her. This could be the way to win her back, or at least give her a night off from fighting for her life—if Owen can survive...
This is only the second author I've seen in the large group that I read constantly -that have written a series in first person POV but has written companion pieces in their lovers POV later.

Out of the two authors that have done this, this is not the most adept. We have Owen thinking, pondering, brooding, inner-dialoguing, beating a dead horse of how he let his love slip through his fingers...yet he never once really steps up to the plate to tell Gin how he really feels. Okay, I realize that discussing his feeling with the love of his life would not be considered manly. I get that. But to do what he did do and then to keep it secret was a little cowardly.

This book felt different, and it should have since ti is in a different POV. But Owen POV aside - this almost felt as if it was written by a totally different person. The whole writing style felt off for some reason.

It is nice that we will be seeing this couple (hopefully) together again and that he and Phillip seem to have come to terms with their issues.

Oh-and did I mention that the cover to this book is totally HOT?!
