Review: Beautiful Assassin (Syndicate #1) by Skyla Madi


Spoiler alert.

I fall in love with the man who comes in the night.
He watches me down the scope of his rifle and it’s terrifying, and exhilarating, not knowing when he’ll squeeze the trigger. If he’ll squeeze the trigger.

Maybe I’ll die tonight…

…maybe I’ll die next week.

It’s a sick and twisted game, but it’s ours. And just when I think our story ends at a distance, he comes in close, thrusting himself into my life.
We are at war, him and me, and eventually, he’ll have to kill me.
If he doesn’t, someone else will.

My Review

What a thrilling and exciting read!!

Beautiful Assassin is one of those books that just grips you from the first page and captivates you the entire time. When we first meet up with Cammie, we see just how unhappy she is with her life. She is struggling just to get through the day. She is in an impossible situation with no clear way out. All she wants is to live a normal life and to have freedom. But, that reality will never be hers. She is destined to be married to a man she doesn’t love…Stefan is a trained killer. He never misses his target and gets a thrill out of what he does. But, when his next hit is the lovely Cammie, everything goes out the window. He knows he has to kill her, but can not resist the pull that he feels. His hit on Cammie will become the most dangerous game of cat and mouse…

Beautiful Assassin was a fantastic read. I devoured it in just one sitting. I loved how dark and twisted the story was. I easily got lost in Cammie’s story and could not for the life of me, put this book down. I was captivated, and entranced. I couldn’t read the pages fast enough. This story thrilled and intrigued me. I was constantly on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next. Beautiful Assassin was everything that you could want and need from a mob style book. There was danger, mystery, action, suspense, sex and intrigue. It. Had. It. All. I don’t know if there will be another book in this series, but I’m hoping there will be because I’d definitely love to read more from this world and these characters!

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*
