“Don’t you have anything better to fucking do other than babysit and eventually get killed by some psycho?”
“No.” Boyd said without hesitation. “I don’t.”

Summary from Goodreads:
In a post-apocalyptic future, the Agency works behind the scenes to take down opposition groups that threaten the current government. Their goals justify all means, even when it comes to their own agents.
Sin is the Agency’s most efficient killer. His fighting skills and talent at assassination have led to him being described as a living weapon. However, he is also known to go off on unauthorized killing sprees, and his assigned partners have all wound up dead.
Boyd is not afraid to die. When his mother, a high-ranking Agency official, volunteers him to be Sin’s newest partner, he does not refuse. In fact, his life has been such an endless cycle of apathy and despair that he’d welcome death.
“You aren’t how I imagined my assassin to be. You’re too beautiful and tragic.”
I didn’t think I’d like this book this much. What a pleasant surprise. Everything about it is a perfect mix of love, hate, frustration, impotence and anger. Oh, the feelings, what a time to be alive!
Sin, the so-called monster of the Agency, is instead a beautiful 28 year old man. A mix raced wonder: almond shaped green eyes, tanned skin, black hair. the perfect combination of dreamy and deadly!
Sin’s new partner for dangerous missions is Boyd, fragile looking, pale skin and long blonde hair. He wasn’t what anyone expected, he wasn’t at all what Sin expected. Boyd, like Sin, has a hard past and one particular bad incident that scarred him deeply.
Their partnership is all but ordinary. They both wear a mask to hide their real selves. It was hard to watch as words were left unspoken and pain and suffering were left there to grow inside them.
You could see their masks cracking little by little, then a new mask appeared only to crack later. Frustration was my main feeling throughout a certain part of the book.
“The only people paying attention to him were those girls and when he made more of an effort to listen, he realized they were commenting on Boyd’s and his looks. Apparently, he had an amazing body and Boyd had beautiful hair.”
I was so drawn to the characters as I came to know more about them. Some scenes left me speechless for angry reasons, some for frustrating reasons, some more for horny reasons.
Allow me to explain. It’s not really a spoiler, the book is about two guys, they fall for each other in an oddly situation so you know how these things go, right? Yes, there are certain hot scenes but nothing made me hornier than the almost kiss. It left me there, mouth opened, feelings all over the place. I was in public and I didn’t know what to do with myself. How could I contain such a strong feeling? It felt so wrong yet so good.
Sin and Boyd, what a pair of stupid human beings!
I love them!
Do I recommend it? Of course, but beware, there are some heavy themes that not everybody can handle.
