About the book
First love’s a killer, but so is seventeen-year-old Annabelle Blanc. The teenager was raised to be an assassin and taught to never fall in love. She lives for the job until she meets Gabriel Sanchez, the son of her latest target.
Wealthy, spoiled and self-indulgent, Gabriel Sanchez is a teenage playboy. Setting his sights on the beautiful Annabelle, he's drawn to the mysterious new girl who's playing hard to get. Gabriel also finds himself drawn into a world of deception, violence and murder.
Off-centered for the first time in her life, Annabelle struggles to fight her doomed attraction for the handsome Gabriel.
Love this storyline. Young Love Murder is very complex novel that had me engrossed from the start. They may appear to be just a couple of teenagers, but Annabelle and her brother Jackson are assassins. Having been trained from a very young age they are far from your typical teenagers, and much deadlier. At the start of this story Annabelle is sixteen years old, and a beautiful teenager happens to be just what her current job requires. As a young woman and an assassin she finds herself in a very precarious position when her mission involves attending High School, and winning the hearts of the son and nephew that will gain her access to her mark. In theory this is a carefully mastered and amazing plan, but when matters of the heart are concerned nothing will remain perfect or easy. From this point on this novel becomes a roller coaster of emotion and gruesome truth about this young girl’s life. It touches the highs and low of thin line between love and hate. As it uncovers this brutal world of murder and deception it will captivate readers by its ability to create a necessary evil out of such destruction. Brookshire offers the perfect mixture of dark and light, between Annabelle's life and the romance that ensues. It is crazy the number of directions this story will take you, and be prepared for the ride. This is a very long story, but the pace will carry you through without a hitch. I am curious if we will see another novel created about Jackson, and look forward to reading more from this talented author. Check out this forbidden tale, and the mayhem that will follow.
