    One thought on “Chance Assassin: A Story of Love, Luck, and Murder”

    1. This book was an insane mix of romance and psychopathy I sort of loved it but, at the same time, felt horrified. Nicole Castle really pushed my limits today! How is this different from the other assassin books out there? Well, for one, moral ambiguity abounds. The marks (targets) are a mix of good and bad people. They cry, they beg, and I felt their humanity. It was kind of grotesque the way that Vincent enjoyed the killing- and few of the gritty details are spared. Whereas in other books, the b [...]

    2. 4.5 stars. Amazing, twisted romance between a cold, murderous assassin and a damaged teen. 16 year old Vincent is living on the streets doing what he has to to survive. He is stabbed one night during a robbery job for which he was to be paid $50. He turns on his attacker then hikes for hours in the snow to get back to his sleazy 'mentor' Charlie. At Charlie's door he collapses into the arms of the most beautiful man he's ever seen, Frank.Frank is an assassin and Charlie is his handler. There is [...]

    3. 4.25 starsWell this was an experience that's for sure, never have I been so undecided on how to rate a book or had so many mixed emotions. From memory the only other book I can remember giving me this much hell was A Dangerous Man and that was depressingly wretched. It's rough trying to love what is basically a twisted, obsessive relationship. Horrified fascination for the f%$ked up goings on between Vince and Frank are the draw card. It wasn't the murders that got to me the most, it was all abo [...]

    5. Two insane and immoral guys who drive cross-country to assassinate cheating husbands and traitorous rats and who also happen to have an edgy romance going on? Oh, baby! And parts of this debut by Castle are an absolute delight to read, not in the last place the clever dialogue. On the other hand, and darn this, Chance Assassin is SO flawed. To start with the very best; the Micky & Mallory Natural Born Killers associations, that Shelley pointed out in her awesome review. The wittiness! The ba [...]

    6. 4.5 Stars, but I'm rounding up here. Psst I apologise in advance to my GR buddies for a too long review, I couldn't help myself - sowwwy.Chance Assassin is Nicole Castle’s debut novel and it is superb. A clever and twisted highly amoral love story - and it is a love story. Just like Natural Born Killers with Micky & Mallory was a love story (ha!) So too is the story of Frank and Vincent. I mean, murdering sociopaths get to fall in love too, don’t they? The story begins with 16 year old V [...]

    7. When I first read the names of the characters, I remembered Vince and Jules from Pulp Fiction.They are nothing alike. Except for the bickering. And being capable of doing anything. No scruples or regrets. And the loyalty. They complement each other. Vincent is a minor, he has not read a whole book in his life, he watches TV till his brain explodes. Frank is much older, he has not seen a film in his life, and reads the same book again and again till the words leak out of his ears. Frank is naïve [...]

    8. I’d never been a very good Catholic. I wasn’t fond of guilt, and our church didn’t employ any of those handsy priests I’d heard such delightful things about, so I saw no reason to attend. It occurs to me that I use the words “love” & “awesome” a little too freely. Oh, and “fuck.” I definitely say that word too [fucking] much.I say this because I want you to know, whoever you are reading this, that when I say…I…Fucking…LOVE…this book…This book is FUCKING AWESOME. [...]

    9. 4,5 starsLet`s start at the end and why I didn`t give the full five stars.As much as I liked Vincent`s - the hot-blooded, underage rookie-assassin - voice as first person POV, as much as I laughed and cried with him, fell in love with Frank - the cold-blooded super-assassin - right with him; the HEA was kind of a let down. This is a romance and they are supposed to live happy ever after but did they deserve a HEA (view spoiler)[in retirement without any reprimands (hide spoiler)]? Um!For once I [...]

    10. 3, 5 stars that could have been 10 stars! I have to calm me down first. I can't remember when I was THAT pissed off last time after finishing a book!The last 15% ruined the whole book for me. It was 5 awesome stars to 85% and 1,5 WTF-stars for the last 15%. I can't believe it!!! VERY VERY PITY.Let me talk about the first 85%. Unusual love story. LOVE IT. Unusual main characters. LOVE IT. Unusual POV. LOVE IT A LOT. Unusual writing. LOVE IT.All this together was a real page turner and made an exc [...]

    11. 0 - 76% = 3.95 stars77 - 100% = 1.5 average (some bits are a 5, some are a 0.02)The last quarter managed to thoroughly and methodically negate everything I enjoyed about the first 3/4. Except when (view spoiler)[Frank beats Charlie to death with a steel pipe. That is a moment of absolute classical greatness. The hero overcomes symbolic death and destroys the senex, through the direct action of his own hands, thereby creating a new order. 100% brilliant. (hide spoiler)].I think the author got los [...]

    12. Amazing debut. I can't wait for more by Nicole Castle! Little secret: she said on her blog that she's going to write more about Vincent and Frank, but there's nothing decided yet. I'll be stalking her.Chance Assassin: A Story of Love, Luck and Murderor, An international super assassin in love with an emotionally unbalanced kid from Podunk, Illinois.There's no need to talk about the plot, because it's in the blurb up there, but it definitely delivered everything I wanted and more.I loved loved lo [...]

    13. DNF @ 20%I know I'm gonna be in the minority for this. And I probably didn't give this book enough of a chance. I love violence, and serial killers, and sociopaths galore. Yum! Throw in some blood play and non-con scenes and I'm like a five year old boy who just got the firetruck toy of his dreams for his birthday.But Chance Assassin just hit all the wrong buttons for me, and I found myself skimming by 10%. My first problem was Vincent. He's six months away from being seventeen, and has pretty m [...]

    14. I was all set to give this book five stars. How could I not love it? It has strains of Natural Born Killers and The Professional, and reminded me strongly of Richard Rider's genius Stockholm Syndrome. It was so very close to being perfect. But it fell apart in the last quarter, when too many things were happening at once. This book, pared down to just Vincent and Frank, would have been sublime. It was funny in places, yes, but there was an underlying intensity that stemmed from the these two dam [...]

    15. 2.5 StarsThe idea of this book was great, but it failed in execution. I'll keep this short and sweet. I had problems with it from the beginning. I never bought the reason why (view spoiler)[ Charlie offered Vincent the job that was suppose to get him killed. It was petty. I also didn't buy the fact that he was this big bad handler. Sure he was creepy, but I didn't get a dangerous vibe from him.(hide spoiler)]The middle dragged and there was a lot of telling and not showing. I was bored with the [...]

    16. What. The. Fuck?!?!?This book was all kinds of sick, twisted, insane, depraved, perverted awesomenessuntil the end.When I first started reading, I thought, "Oh this is gonna be so good!" Then about a third of the way through I was feeling a bit green at all the horrifying events happening and I had to put the book down and assure myself that no, I am NOT a pedophile; I'm just reading about one. I had to go read about some rock stars (love you Evan and Jesse!) to cleanse my palate before I could [...]

    17. This is the craziest book I've read in a long time. The relationship between Vincent and Frank is all kinds of nuts and really somewhat sweet, and I could not get enough of these two. When we meet Vincent, he is just shy of his 17th birthday, homeless and broke and bleeding out from a knife wound. He manages to make it to the hotel room of Charlie when the door is answered by Frank, the man of his dreams, just before he passes out. We start to get the story of Frank and his handler Charlie, as V [...]

    18. A Perfect Pair of Nut Jobs.This is a story about love at first sight between two exceptionally amoral critters. I absolutely loved Vincent and thoroughly enjoyed 'living' the story through his unique POV. He's hilarious and cheeky and altogether insanely in love with the apple-of-his-eye, Frank. Vincent's love/lust/obsession never wavered and it was adorable in the most rotten way. Here's an example of how he sees Frank:His face was badly bruised and swollen and altogether painful looking, but i [...]

    19. DONE! :D Wow, I haven't read a book this fun in a long while. I love bad guys in love and assassins who aren't crybaby-pussycats which is often the case with romance novels (or they end up being undercover cops and actually all nice and good ;) ) I loved the dynamic between Vincent and Frank. Vincent's narration had me laughing out loud lots of times and his cold blooded attitude, excitement about aggression and murder was an exciting addition. I love being taken on a journey by an author and Fr [...]

    20. One of the best WTF books that i ever read.Todo, absolutamente todo de este libro es un espectacular what the mierd grande como una casa. Desde los personajes, totalmente desequilibrados, psicópatas, narcisistas, perversos, pero tan ADORABLES, hasta la historia muy fuera de lo habitual, con un estilo de humor bien oscuro, con giros repentinos que por momentos me hicieron dudar si estaban faltando palabras o párrafos enteros o si me estaba fallando la cabeza, que eso no lo dudo eh, pero en seri [...]

    21. Holy. Hell!This book messed me up and I loved every perverted, dark, twisted, inappropriate minute of it. Every minute. There is not one thing about this book that I hated and I don't know what the hell that says about me. Ha! Chance Assassin had everything I love, the dark and twisted world with a sweet love story floating around in the murkiness. And this is not two sweet guys in a dark world. This was two screwed up characters in a screwed up world, doing absolutely FUCKED UP things.It's so h [...]

    22. Wow, this book was amazing - I literally had no idea what was going to happen next and the author did such a great job of building the tension.I always felt like there was so much going on that I just missed my first time through this book, I am shelving it 'to read again'Fantastic character development and very unique story, and as I mentioned above, really great pacing. Highly recommend.

    23. Intensely bleak brat fic. Tall, dark and deranged assassin meets horribly abused boy with the looks of an angel and the morals of an alley cat. Love, redemption and numerous violent murders ensue. HEA. I am somewhat gobsmacked.

    24. This book is quite impressive, and for the price I was so glad that I decided to grab it. It was a bargain.The characters in it are very well described, and by 10% of the way through I already felt that I knew them. Especially Charlie, why does every town in America have a Charlie? The character Frank has the same pull and allure that a vampire would. Tall, dark and creepy. His eccentricities make him very alluring, and reading Vincent's descriptions of him were surprisingly enough to make me la [...]

    25. I've read this book three times by now, and I have to say that it remains one of my all-time favorites. I remember the first time I read it, how I started it and don't think I moved a single muscle until it was over. It is perfect -- the writing is phenomenal, the dark humor is unexpected and always appreciated, and it's hot in ways that should probably make me uncomfortable and totally don't. Frank and V's story is unusual, original, engaging and hot as burning. It never follows an expected pat [...]

    26. INFINITE STARS. INFINITE!! I'm throwing ALL the stars at this one because, WOW!!!! This is one of those moments where I truly wish GR had more stars in their rating system, because, did I mention? This book (and the author, Nicole Castle) deserves ALL of them <3!!! This book, these men, this series definitely amongst my rare absolute favorites :-)!!I have much more to say but in the meantime, seriously, READ THIS BOOK!!!!!!

    27. Everything here felt dull for me! The characters, the adventures, all the weird things written to amuse the reader, they just frustrated me at first and then made me BORED! I couldn’t feel anything about it except trying hard to finish the book, I knew it’s not going to get any better anyway.

    28. 5 Stars read for me.I struggled for quite some time how to write this review simply because I don't think that there's anything I can write that can do justice the awesomeness that this novel is.My friend asked me to describe her the book that got me so excited in one sentence and I said to her:"It's a very dark love story, but funny and positive in Tarantino kind of way."If it was me, I would be all over it after this description, but this book features very twisted or distorted love relationsh [...]

    29. This is probably one of the fucking nuttiest books I've ever read, yet I say that with the highest level of affection. It mentions some incredibly dark themes and issues, yet when presented by our MC Vincent, there is no time for sadness or horror to linger before we're once again swept away in this whirlwind of utterly bizarre mind fuckery.I don't think I've ever read a book like this and I can't decide whether that is a good thing or not. I've been thinking about this review for a while, or, m [...]

    30. I'm not even sure where to begin, or end, or where the middle is, except I do know this was one hell of a ride, Holy Cow!First off, let me say the writing on this is phenomenal. There are no hiccups, the story flows smoothly from one scene to the next, there's no second guessing, you don't have to go back and re-read to catch on to what's going on. Perfect!Now, as to the plot and the characters? wow! WOW! Wowzy, wow wow! At first I was a little put off with the story line, but I was assured by a [...]
