THE PERFECT NEIGHBORS. THE PERFECT COVER.A Gripping Romantic Suspense Thriller
He’s a contract killer. She likes to even the score. Smack dab in the middle of suburbia, few married couples are as competitive as Jude and Kate.
But then, most married couples don’t keep score in the form of body counts. Each hell-bent on a silent pact to out-do the other, the games begin.
Who ends up on top is anyone’s guess. But with these two, one thing’s for sure— not everyone comes out alive.
After all, there are a few things they can agree on: All is fair in love and war. And if they can’t make it work— they’re dead in the water.
“Cheers,” I offer, but it sounds like ‘fuck you,’ which it is, and I hate that we haven’t touched glasses. It’s bad luck, and certainly we don’t need any of that. You don’t seem concerned with luck though, because in two short strides you are standing in front of me, and your eyes are dark. You swallow hard, and this intensity, it kills me. You don’t say anything, and I hate the silence between us. Maybe you’re trying to send a message. Maybe you’re into telepathy; I’m not sure. But I’m not afraid of this side of you, Jude. It’s always been the best part. And so when you push me against the wall, I go willingly. At least at first. Because I know you, and you’ve always enjoyed a bit of a fight.
You MUST read Water Under the Bridge (WUTB) first!!
Amazing continuation to WUTB! The story picks up right where WUTB left off and you get to read more of the dark, twisted world of Jude and Kate. Yes, Jude and Kate are assassins and kill people but there is so much more to them than just being a hired gun.
This story reminds me a little of Mr & Mrs Smith with Jude and Kate being assassins hiding in plain sight in Suburbia, USA.
Very well written story that I can’t wait to re-read and continue on in part 3!
