{Blog Tour} Gena Showalter's BLACK AND BLUE --- Trick or Treat Hop!


BLACK AND BLUEOtherworld Assassins, #2

New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter's pulse-pounding paranormal series continues with an electrifying story about the ultimate warrior and his prize: a beautiful woman he will do anything to possess.

HE IS EVERY WOMAN’S FANTASY. . .
Corbin Blue is a man of many talents. One of the most powerful otherworlders ever born, he is wealthy, a professional football star, and a legend in the bedroom. But only a select few know he is also a black ops agent...and there is no better killer. When he and his crew are attacked and separated, he’s forced to turn to his boss’s daughter for help―a woman with even more secrets than Blue.

. . .SHE BECOMES HIS ONLY OBSESSION
Evangeline Black has always been wary, guarded. No man has ever breeched her walls. Until Blue. He has never been denied something he wants, and now, he’s decided he wants her. As he sweeps her into his double life of seduction, intrigue, and danger, he helps her see beyond the darkness of her past. But as an enemy closes in, Blue will have to let Evie go to keep her safe—even though he'd rather die than live without her…

 This was my very first Gena Showalter book and now I know why everyone talks about them and is giddy when she has a new one coming out! I definitely will be buying her other books immediately and diving in! This was heart-pounding action, sweet emotion, fun and snarky wit from both main characters, and intense sexy heat!

First, can we talk about how gorgeous this cover is? I love how that dress ends in liquid and it's so incredibly vivid! Love it!

Corbin Blue is an Arcadian, an alien basically, with incredible powers that no one knows the extent of. He's a star football player, a celebrity, a rake with a womanizing reputation. What no one knows is that he's a black ops agent...

Evangeline Black is a doctor in a New States hospital, owned by her father, Michael Black. Michael is a well known arms dealer making the move to legitimate businessman. And is Corbin's boss as well as Evie's, because she's a trained agent as well.

The book starts off with a bang, intense chemistry between Blue and Black just flying back and forth. It was incredibly enjoyable and then it just kept rolling. When Blue is injured and her father has gone missing, he goes to the only person he can trust at a time like this, the Black Plague herself, Evie.

The description of what happened to Earth was incredibly brief, but totally disheartening as I could see it happening in my life time. But happily the story focuses on the present for Blue and Evie. Together, their mission is to recover her father and the other two missing agents, John and Solo.

Lots of sexual tension (and relief), lots of action, tons of personality, and incredibly endearing hero and heroine made this book a five star read for me. Once I fell into the world of Black and Blue, I was lost for a few hours of pure enjoyment and entertainment! I cannot wait to get my hands on more Gena Showalter books!
