Summary:
Years after the bombs of WWIII have changed the physical and political landscape, the Agency ruthlessly works behind the scenes to take down rebel groups that threaten the current government. Their goals justify all means. Hsin Liu Vega (Sin) is their most efficient and deadly assassin ever. However, he tends to go off on unauthorized killing sprees and somehow his assigned partners all end up dead under suspicious circumstances. That is why the Agency has had him locked up in a box on the fourth floor for years. But now they think it is time to put the psychopath back in the field. With a new partner.

Boyd's mother, a high ranking Agency official, volunteers her teenage son for the position. Boyd is not afraid of death. In fact, his life has been such an endless cycle of apathy and despair for the last few years that he'd welcome it.

Can these two broken men form an efficient partnership? Can they learn to trust anyone, let alone each other? Sin doesn't give a fuck about the Agency, or the androgynous boy who holds the remote to the shock collar that is supposed to control him.

On the other hand, Boyd is strangely unafraid of the man everyone calls 'monster' and Sin seems reluctant to let his keeper get himself killed on any missions. Yet.

  :) i liked that part  :laugh: he was so laid back about "stalking" Sin  :D and i'm loving Boyd even with whatever tragedy he is dealing with and his detachment from life, he pushes himself to be better only to satisfy that evil witch  :P his mother.
I'm at the part where they are in Spain on a mission, i'm going to start chapter 8 later.

 ??? I need to speed up a little, i didn't know u guys were so far ahead,  i started chapter 11.

Okay i'm signing off now, to catch up with you, i'm at the part where Boyd is caught on a mission and he is beaten and he thinks he is going to die and he doesn't know if he is hallucinating or if he really saw Sin there.
Is he or isn't? That is the question  :laugh: i'm off to find out.

Omg! I am soooo upset!! I was pretty crying at one point. I really don't like the second book. I'm not done yet, but I'll finish in a few hours. It turned into a freaking Romeo & Juliet type drama and I just want to kick something! UGH  :pulling Why can't they just freaking TALK for god's sake!!!! :pulling :pulling

Oh an also the sheer amount of gay/bisexual people in this book is getting a bit ridiculous. What are the chances that like 95% of the people that get talked about are gay/bi? I mean really? It's just not really believable...

If u r pulling ur hair because they are not talking in the secong book, then i should be a little apprehensive about starting it  :laugh: because now i get frustrated and want to hit my head against something because they don't talk enough and clear things up, i'm at chapter 33 where they are in Mexico and they are finally talking and acting  >:D i don't know what i'll do if they ruined everything again. I love it when a book gets me so excited i can't put it down and i can't predict what happens next, i'm always on edge  :laugh:

Aqua my friend was asking me for a recommendation for a (thriller, action, suspense and a little romance) book, and u were reading Rizzoli & Isles series, what did u think of it? does it fit any of the above  :laugh:

Rizzoli & Isles don't exactly have overt romance stuff but otherwise, yes, they fit perfectly.

Lmao. I was like that too with the break, but then I would try to pick up a book and just nothing...So I said screw it and went all the way through LOL. If the first one messed you up, second one is just ... no words :P Totally worth it though. That ending for the fourth was excellent.
