Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Chocolate Minx 

The deadly game of hide and seek continues for Dillon Carter and Marc Francis. Unfortunately, love for Dillon has distracted Marc from performing the basic assassin rules.

Assassins Love People Too is the second book in the Assassins in Love series. In the first book, Assassins are People Too, Marc is attracted to his neighbor Dillon but never sought an acquaintance until one of Marc's enemies attempts to murder Marc in the elevator. Dillon hits the enemy with a potted plant to save Marc. Instantly, Marc and Dillon develop a strong sexual bond that, months later, develop into a relationship.

Marc Francis is a paid assassin for an unofficial top secret agency in the government. He was recruited during his service in the Army. His assignment is to eradicate serialized murderers. Marc doesn’t do relationships, he has trust issues and he seldom reveals his emotions. This has become an issue between Marc and Dillon. Neither man is sure the relationship is real love. However, Dillon’s identity has been compromised and Marc is determined to protect Dillon.

Dillon is a kindhearted man who rescues discarded plants and looks for the goodness in everyone. Dillon is totally oblivious to the clandestine operation of the political world; he is beginning to realize that polite conversation with the wrong person can have deadly consequences. 

Overall, S.C. Wynne’s Assassins Love People Too is enjoyable. However I thought the enemy take-down scene in the latter chapters lacked the intensity required to summon a realistic suspense reaction. The main features of this installment are careless mistakes, insecurity about Marc’s retirement as well as Dillon’s apprehension regarding Marc’s former sex partner. The assassination of a fanatical enemy is not the end of problems for Marc, there is another villain targeting Marc’s friend.
