Beautiful Assassin – Skyla Madi

When Cammie Connors saved the mother of Christiano Russo, the son and heir to one of the most dangerous crime families in Australia, her life changed. At first Christiano’s world excited her, but now she’s trapped in her worst nightmare. Yet to the outside world she appears to be Russo’s princess, and as tensions run high between the two warring families, the Morettis order a hit on Cammie. Stefan Valentino is the name all men fear, but when his calling card, a single white rose, is left for Cammie, she feels a strange sense of calm. Eventually he will kill her, but when? Until that time, Cammie finds herself enjoying the chase…

Beautiful Assassin has such an interesting premise, and I loved the tension that this builds in the very beginning of the novel, but I kind of wish that Madi had made more of this while delving further into the Russo/Moretti family history. For me, the initial game between Cammie and Stefan made this mafia romance that little bit different, and I just wanted that bit more.

Even so, there was a lot to like about Beautiful Assassin. It had romance, some action and was well-written. Overall, a good read. I’m curious to see if there’s a sequel.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review.
