Chantel Mathis is more than just a decorator, disgusted by the retro tacky building she’d been hired to update. Chantel is also the trained killer, Karma, assigned to wipe out a cunning and virile werewolf. She knows her assignment will be challenging, but Chantel wasn’t expecting the attraction she felt toward her target.

Vampires know him as Slayer but to the rest of the world, Ren Aubrey is a new CEO who stepped in after his father’s death. The werewolf bachelor figures out Chantel’s true intentions immediately and decides to play along. Things heat up between them, regardless of the new dangers their liaison will cause. Will their mutual attraction be the end or the beginning?

First Impressions are often wrong, but I have to say that Jocelyn Michel did everything right in this story, the first of the Assassins in Lace series. No time was wasted before Ren and Chantel got right down to the business of heating up the pages. There was nothing shy about either of these two characters, and that’s a good thing. I’m already a sucker for a couple who has all odds against them, but the addition of the couple being natural enemies, a vampire and a werewolf, really took me there. Chantel and Ren belong together, so of course I was saddened to see their story end so quickly. Their romance is too out of the ordinary to conclude in the blink of an eye. The shock of discovering what Ren’s company did was a pleasant twist as well. I’m a fan of this series and you will be too, after this story.
