Heart of a Killer by Yolanda Wallace

⭐⭐⭐★


Brooklyn DiVincenzo is the CEO of her own tech company which is on the upward trajectory. On a business trip in Tokyo, she is saved from unwelcome attention by an attractive mystery woman. They spend the evening together without exchanging their real names, but Brooklyn gives the woman her number (though not her name). Brooklyn’s mystery woman is Santana Masters, a contract killer. Santana’s next job is in Brooklyn’s hometown, New York. Santana isn’t able to pull the trigger, but someone else does and only then does Santana realise that the mark was Brooklyn’s friend and business partner, Charlie. Santana is determined to find out who pulled the trigger, who floated the contract and above all, she’s determined to keep Brooklyn safe.

We loved the fact that the MCs didn’t spend time fighting their attraction. It was refreshing to read a flowing romance between them. The angst came more from their circumstances than from the women holding themselves back. We could’ve so done without Santana breaking someone’s heart in Iceland. It was completely unnecessary. Also, while we loved the romance, we feel that the intrigue could’ve been way tighter. Santana’s back story and the almost indentured nature of her association with her ‘handler’ wasn’t too convincing. When the crime was solved, the reason for the contract on Charlie actually has us question why Charlie when the more obvious choice would’ve been Brooklyn?

However, we are saps for romance and this is more romance than anything else – so unsurprisingly, we enjoyed it. We loved Brooklyn and were pretty okay with Santana.

This is an okay read.
