Review: Catch (Assassins #1) By Solange Poirier

Sometimes, being in the wrong place at the wrong time is where you need to be for the good things in life to fall into place.

Max Brady is a 25 year old, fresh out of college, ambitious woman that doesn't take crap from anyone, and often uses men before tiring and disposing of them. She’s landed her dream job at the internet search engine company Fiddle. Unfortunately, she is stuck working as an assistant to the company’s CEO, but she’s hopeful that if she plays nice, one day she’ll be promoted. 

Catch is an assassin. He’s been working this job for twelve years and now with his family taken care of he is ready to retire. All he wants to do is complete his last assignment, collect his large sum of cash, and then disappear to a nice, quiet place in another country. 

When Max makes the huge mistake of sleeping with her boss, she decides to copy some files from his computer to hold as leverage in the event that he may try to fire her. Little does she know, the files hold secrets that can take down her boss and the entire Fiddle company. 

That decision changes the course of both of their lives.

Catch is hired to kidnap and kill Max, but instead he chooses to save her life. They go on the run as he tries to formulate a plan to remove the hit on Max, because he believes that she was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. As they spend more time together, Catch’s motivation for saving her life changes with his realization that if anything happens to Max he may be unable to live without her.
My Review


What happens when you are at the wrong place at the wrong time?
One little action can cause such a big catastrophe..

When Max has a drunken one night stand with her boss things are bad.Every assistant he sleeps with ends up fired.Max cant lose her job not after she worked so hard for it.Coming in early to talk and sort out the situation she has found herself in she overhears something she shouldn't and it gets worse she decided to copy the files from his computer to use against him if he wants to fire her.Little doesn't she know that her small action will lead to much bigger consequences.

Catch is an assassin but he doesn't want to live that life anymore, he wants to leave and he has one last hit to complete. He always asks about his hits, he always kills bad people only this time he doesn't ask.He just wants it over with but this time it is different, its kidnapping as well as murder.This is the hit that will change everything..

Max isn't a normal 25 year old woman she is pretty strong, independent, funny, stubborn woman and she doesn't back down.When she comes face to face with Catch who has kidnapped her nothing seems to make sense until she remembers the files she copied off her boss's computer.

Catch has a bad feeling about this, everything feels wrong about his target, she seems so innocent, feisty yet innocent.What could she have possibly done to get herself in this position.So when he takes off the gag to let her explain things change and he can't seem to leave her to be tortured.

Catch and Max are so funny together, they piss each other off yet they are perfect for each other.Max has always needed to be the strong one, the one who protects others so when she meets Catch things change. He can take care of her but will she let him?
The chemistry between Catch and Max is electric and the sexual tension is everywhere, will they succumb to their desires or is this a whole lot more?

In my opinion Catch was never bad/evil he was always trying to do the right thing even if he was an assassin he had his reason and he wasn't the killer you see on the outside.This book is in both Max's and Catch's POV and you get an insight to the assassin and how it all happened.

I liked how this book was fast-paced and I could imagine the scenes like a movie playing in my head.I liked the story and how it all came together except the 1-2 chapters before the end where I felt time moved too fast other things I just didn't want that there but hey the ending was good and all was well.

Soo I really wanted book 2 to have it continue Catch and Max's story but that's not happening, oh well Snitch seemed interesting too I wonder what his story is and I can't wait to find out!
