Product description

Product Description

She’s running for her life.
He’s the assassin hired to hunt her down.
A dangerous game of manipulation will twist their lives together.

Kimber Wellington skipped town with a USB drive that could collapse her family’s empire. After her sadistic step-brother, Marco, hostilely takes over the business from her father, he makes it his only priority to find Kimber and the information that could ruin him. Kimber has strategized how to stay out of Marco’s clutches, but she didn’t plan on the monster that finds her.

Rye Anderson is ruthless. He kills without regret, collects the paycheck and enjoys a solitary life. The last hassle he wants to deal with is tracking a socialite across the country, a job he accepts as a favor. Rye assumes that delivering the twenty-three-year-old college student will be a quick, easy payday. He soon realizes that his underestimation of Kimber could be a game changer

WARNING: This is a sexually explicit, foul language filled non-traditional dark romantic suspense. It is not intended for sensitive readers or anyone under the age of 18.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 twisted stars 18 March 2017
By ANJasper - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Before picking up Manipulating the Assassin, I had NEVER heard of Lauren Reign! But I saw romantic suspense and knew I had to give it a shot. This is not the same old assassin ends up falling for his target. Oh no, this was one wild ride and the twists didn't stop coming.

Kimber finds herself literally in the fight for her freedom after her father is gunned down at the hands of her step-brother, Marco. She is quick and is able to give him the slip but she has something Marco wants so he enlists some help in getting it back. Enter Rye. Talk about tall, dark and dangerous.

Rye and Kimber butt heads at every turn. She challenges him and while it frustrates him, it also intrigues him. He can't deny his attraction to this fiery woman. When she turns the tables on him, all bets are off. I didn't see that little twist coming- at all! The rules have changed and a new plan is formed...

Overall, this short read was chocked full of sass and smarts. While I did find there to be a few small holes in the plot, the banter was sharp and made it easy to relate to and root for the characters (except Marco- he totally deserved what he got)!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Suspense! 20 March 2017
By TheBookAddict'sReviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.

First book I've read by Lauren Reign but definitely was a great time reading! Romantic Suspense is just such a fun genre to read. Add assassins in the mix and you've got a pretty solid book!

Kimber has a wicked step-brother, who murdered her father. While on the run Marco sends an assassin after her. Rye is charged with getting her back to Marco, which turns out to be no easy task. Kimber is a fiery heroine who is stubborn as he** with Rye. She never backs down, nor shows fear around him. I love a strong heroine! What is crazy is the twist of how Kimber turns the direction of the storyline on Rye.

My grievances are: wish there were more scenes between Rye and Kimber. Their sex is hot!!! And some of the plot had holes. Questions that I need answers to.

Overall a fun, quick read that I believe anyone who loves an action/suspense with their romance will enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars #PACKSABIGPUNCH 19 March 2017
By Jennifer Pierson: The Power of Three Readers - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Ok let me start out by saying that this was TOO SHORT! I NEED NEED NEED MORE, OH SO MUCH MORE! Lauren Reign kicked things off with a bang, and my heart is still racing after I finished it. It never slowed down, and by the ending, I felt like I just ran a marathon. Her brilliant writing style obviously had me all in from the get go. Twists and turns around every corner kept me on the edge of my seat. And that last twist, well let's just say that loud f-bomb dropping was flying everywhere! Kimber was a great female that I totally loved even in all the shortness. I'm praying there is more as I feel like I was left hanging, of course this may just be me, but it is what it is. So anyway, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND this high octane read to all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Short Read 21 March 2017
By amoryamistad - Published on

This is my first book by Lauren Reign and i am glad i was able to voluntarily read an advance readers copy of this excellent short book. Manipulating the Assassin had a bit of suspense, action, twists and turns and romance. I don't want to give to much away but Kimber was kidnapped by her wicked stepbrother who wanted to take over the family empire and hired Rye to be the one to execute the plan but will he be able to? Will Kimber be more than just his prisoner? How will the story end? Pick up a copy and find out for yourself you will enjoy it. Can't wait to read more from this author.
