The Trouble With Trying to Date a Murderer by Jennifer Cody

Fresh and Fun. Jacquie would give The Trouble With Trying to Date a Murderer more stars if she could.

From the Blurb:

Third time’s the charm, right? At least that’s what I tell myself when I witness the same hot guy commit mass murder three times in a few days. I’m either the luckiest mute boy ever or possibly the unluckiest. Who knows, maybe him kidnapping me will turn into the greatest love story ever told? Hey, it could happen! You never know how these things will turn out. I happen to believe in love and soulmates, and if nothing else, Arlington Fox doesn’t treat my disability like a nuisance. It’s not everyday you find someone who just gets you, and I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth even if the horse in question is a man so good at killing people that I should probably introspect a bit about why that skews my moral compass and possibly my kinks. But c’mon, competence is sexy, amiright?

The Trouble with Trying to Date a Murderer is an MM Paranormal Romance with lots of sass, humor, a ridiculous 3000 year age-gap, and an inordinate number of tables.

Jacquie's Review:

Cody had me laughing throughout the whole book. It was impossible for me not to love Romilly from the first page, he gave me Leland lite vibes and I loved it. 

The action was fast-paced with just enough world-building to keep me interested, but not too much that I felt overwhelmed. It's more of a slow burn with the physical side of their relationship but Romilly and Fox are super sweet. The barrier of Romilly being mute doesn't affect their relationship at all. 

There's a couple of side characters I'm interested in but really, I could read several books about Romilly and Fox with no issues of getting bored. The ending is a tad abrupt, a tease of more adventures, so it's a HFN. Told in single pov.
