My rating: ★★★★★

Series: Hired Gun, Serial #1

Blurb from Goodreads:

Hired Gun is a serial novel. Approximately 15k words. *18+ due to sex scenes and language.

Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Thorne Hollow knows the power he holds over the opposite sex and how to use it.

Cast out by the gods thousands of years ago, he roams the earth working as an assassin for The Sicarii, a secret society who protects humans from all of the things that go bump in the night.

Long ago, Thorne made the mistake of falling in love with a human, and her death stripped him bare. Now he is destined to live a life of solitude. One night stands are his way of life ... until he meets a mysterious woman whose intriguing power compels him to uncover more about her and the strange magic she wields.

My review:

*ARC received in exchange for an honest review*

I’m pleasantly surprised with this book. I didn’t really know what to expect, but this was so good !

In this book we follow Thorne in his daily life. Thorne is an immortal half human and half god. He works as assassin for The Sicarrii, a secret society to protect people from supernatural creatures and (bad/dangerous/..) humans.
He’s very tough, a bit of a jerk, but he has also his sweet and caring sides. He’s such a complex character and I want to find out more about him!

It’s a very quick read and it stays very mysterious. You can see a glimpse of the world where Thorne lives in. There are vampires, chimeras, shifters and so on. I feel like this book is more like an introduction to the real book, but it’s totally worth it.

The storyline is very good. AJ Bennet’s writing styles is great. It’s very well written and you fly through the pages.
I cannot wait to find more about the characters and the world where Thorne lives in!
