Publisher's Summary

A killer with a white picket fence.

Suburbia, a great place for a man with secrets to hide - while investing in some solid real estate. The biggest drawback?

Neighbors.

In this case, a neighbor with sexy curves and a bright smile. Good thing she's not his type. Single moms with annoying exes are on the do-not-date list.

Stay away.

Calvin wants to; it's just not happening. He can't help but find himself drawn to the chaos next door. And when danger threatens his suburban lifestyle, this assassin doesn't hesitate to act.

Killing people is easy. Domestication, on the other hand, terrifies him.

Listen at 1.25x speed

The Narrator sounded pretty weird at first but when I listened at 1.25x speed she sounded fine. The story itself was cute and worth a listen.

So much fun!

I’ve been over loaded on angsty reads lately, and this book was just the cure I needed. It was fun, funny, and sweet and hot by turns! I’m moving on to the others and. This series.

A great action packed love story

Eve Langlais did another great job as a story teller. This story had ALOT of situation those people that survive domestic violence or being with an aggressive person that gaslights their victims & abuses their respect position in the community.. This story will make you cheer. Worth a credit.. yes

Love this book!!!

I love this book because the Hero is an honest to goodness killer for hire! He is not your typical hero which makes him incredibly interesting to me. Narration is great. I like the ending and what happens to the villain, her ex husband. I will listen to this book again which is my endorsement of it. It is a “keeper”.

Entertaining

Lots of cliches & stereotypes but enough suspense, action and humor to keep the audiobook entertaining. Really liked the narrator’s performance.

It’s a great listen

Eve does it again. Another 5 star listen. In this one Eve shows her sarcastic funny side . Her stories are amazing and this is no different.
Right when you think the guy next door is just as normal as you and I you find out differently.
Calvin is the hero. He lives out in the suburbs where there is plenty of land. He’s an assassin who will do anything for the right money . He’s a realtor who is successful. There is one drawback. He has a sexy neighbour who he knows he can’t get to close
Lily is his neighbour who is divorced with a kid . Lilly has a problem with her ex and his outlook.
Does Calvin help Lilly with her problem

Rebecca was great reading this !!

Siri

The narrator has a voice like Siri. The overall story was kind of predictable. The characters were interesting and there is room to improve going forward.

Assassins Are Awesome - Triple A's

Would you consider the audio edition of Assassin Next Door to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version yet. But the audible version is fantastic.

What did you like best about this story?

The story had me from the very start. When his hit dies before he can kill him. I did laugh out loud at work. Calvin was honest with Lily about his job but she would never believe him. Then she tries to protect him because she thinks he will get hurt for being a good Samaritan. When Calvin figures out that Zoe (Lily's daughter) has him charmed too...well he figures out that he wants them as a family..LOVE IT!!!

What about Rebecca Mitchell’s performance did you like?

Rebecca did a great job performance with each of the character's in this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud many times during the audio. I was very surprised when it was revealed what Lily's Ex-husband did has a job.

Any additional comments?

I really do LOVE the the first book in the Bad Boy Inc. series by Eve Langlais. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I have already pre-ordered Pint-Sized Protector Book 2. YAY

Doesn't work for me.

Don't like the characters, they are formulaic and i don't feel much empathy for them. The story doesn't flow.
I like Eve Langlais' other books so I decided to give this one a try; I won't be reading any more in this series.

.

The narrator sounds like a robot...very disappointing and distracting. I would have given the story a lot more stars if someone else had of narrated it.

great book, narrator was near perfect with the voices although a tad robotic with some of the narrative
