NICE GUYS BITE takes place after the events of UNRAVELED (#15). It is told from the point of view of Silvio Sanchez, Gin’s personal assistant.

Working for Gin Blanco (aka the Spider, the assassin who runs the Ashland underworld) doesn’t leave much time for romance, especially with Gin’s holiday party planning in full swing. But when he catches the eye of a charming gentleman, Silvio finds himself going out for coffee.

All’s fair in love and war, though. Just as Silvio is starting to enjoy himself, he realizes he’s being watched. His nice-guy date doesn’t sense the danger, and Silvio wants to keep it that way (and, well, keep the guy alive) so Silvio ends the date early—only to be abducted by some villainous giants.

Will Silvio survive the night and make it back to the Pork Pit in time for Gin’s holiday party? Only if he decks the hall with bodies …

Silvio is a character to watch!

Silvio has been growing on me as a part of Gin’s team. He can go toe to toe with Finn on the snarky one liners and putting away the food. Now after reading Nice Guys Bite we get to see that Silvio can hold his own when it comes to taking on the bad guys. He has some moves of his own, Gin would be proud of!

I will definitely look at Silvio different after reading Nice Guys Bite. He’s not just a pencil pusher for Gin. I loved how the novella wrapped up and how Silvio feels like he is part of a family with the gang.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. WHEN WAS THIS AVAILABLE ON NETGALLEY?! And Jennifer… you lose points for not telling me! Oh well. I bought the book and it’s waiting on my kindle.

    • LOL. I couldn’t find it on NG so I email Jennifer to see if it was available over the weekend and she sent me the widget. I assumed you already had it.

    I love the Elemental Assassin series! It’s on of my all time favorite series. My favorite character is of course Gin.

  3. I’m a huge fan of Elemental Assassins. As for my favorite character, that’s a tough one. I think I would have to pick Gin. I’m normally a bigger fan of secondary characters, but I think in this one, I have to go with the main character.
