It was only a matter of time before I got to this series. I loved Bastian Stark, so it goes without saying I had to read about Evan Arden, too.
I quite liked “Otherwise alone”, it might have been the intro to a romance series, but it isn’t. So what is this series? Mobster story with sex? Cold blooded killer with issues pines for a girl? I have no clue, but it was definitely gripping. When do you ever sit at the edge of your seat to root for a hit man to finally take out his target? Evan killing the woman who means something to him (whatever that something is)? You take it in stride. Wow! It seems your moral values and general decency fly out the window the minute you start reading.
Amazingly, Evan’s voice is very different from Bastian’s. For some reason I expected a guy who sounded more or less the same as Bastian, but no. It is going to be interesting to see the two men meet later on.
I wonder whether anyone who finishes this book reads “Uncockblockable” next. Can you really read about Nick’s escapades after that ending? Who cares about Nick when Evan is in such a predicament? On to “Otherwise unharmed” instead!
