He’s just a hot guy living next door to a single mom – and oh yeah, he kills people for a living.
Suburbia, a great place for a man with secrets to hide while investing in some solid real estate. The biggest drawback?
In this case, a neighbor with sexy curves and a bright smile. Good thing she’s not his type. Single moms with annoying ex-husbands are on the do-not-date list.
Calvin wants to, it’s just not happening. He can’t help but find himself drawn to the chaos next door. And when danger threatens his suburban lifestyle, this assassin doesn’t hesitate to act.
Killing people is easy. Domestication, on the other hand…

Exciting and Unusual
Fast paced romantic thriller with something for everyone. Didn't want my new friends to leave when the book ended. Good thing there is a sequel.
Great Book!! I smiled All the Way Though!
This was such a great read! I smiled and laughed out loud throughout the book. Calvin is an assassin by trade and Lily is the single mother next door. The banter between these two was hilarious and only topped by the internal conversations each had with themselves. It was easy to overlook Calvin's profession and his stalker tendencies, because he was so lovable. I went in thinking this might be a really dark novel it turned out to be funny and lighter than I would have expected. The storyline was also strong and well developed. I was already a fan of Eve Langlais' paranormal novels, but now I can't wait to read the rest of the Bad Boy Inc series!!!
Thrilling from beginning to end!
What a great book! Ms. Langlais takes a diversion from the paranormal and alien genres into contemporary romance, and hits it out of the park! Throw away all the cheesy story lines, and everything you think you know about bad boys. This story drops us into an untenable situation for Lily, as she tries to make a new life for herself and her daughter. Of all the houses in all the neighborhoods around the country, she lands smack next door to a killer-for-hire. Will he make things better or worse for her?
This story is very down to earth, and I felt like this could happen just down the street to someone I know. It’s relatable, which is so essential to a gripping story, and so different from a lot of the other books out there where you think “this couldn’t happen in the real world”. The characters have flaws, but are just trying to live their lives and find their way forward. They don’t pretend to be something they aren’t, but still keep their secrets close.
Lily is fleeing with her daughter from an abusive ex-husband who won’t let go. Calvin is an assassin working for the highest bidder. Sparks and insults fly when they first meet, but the attraction is unmistakable. As their relationship threatens to become something more than just neighborly, Lily tries to save Calvin from her ex, so she fights the allure and pushes him away. Calvin has never been ruled by his emotions, but finds himself drawn to his beautiful neighbor and her daughter. A ready-made family never entered his mind before, but now things have changed. The more she pushes him away, the more he wants to be her knight in shining armor.
Will they be able to escape the nightmares that have been haunting her? Will he be able to convince her that he is the man for her? Will her ex ruin everything? Whose secrets are worse, and what will happen when those secrets collide? Fireworks for sure, but only time will tell if they can survive the explosion.
