New York Times bestseller Jennifer Estep continues her Elemental Assassin urban fantasy series with a novella starring Silvio Sanchez, the vampire assistant of Gin Blanco, as he goes on a holiday date that turns out to be more deadly than romantic.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...
Jennifer Estep's Nice Guys Bite is a 100 page novella that takes place right after Unraveled. Gin and friends have survived an encounter with a new group called the Circle. Now, it is time to get all festive and party. Which means watching Gin cut decorations into little pig shaped snowflakes, and actually enjoy the holidays doing what she does best outside of killing; cooking! But enough of the food and decorations. Silvio Sanchez is Gin's mister do everything.
He's a vampire, her assistant, and he's got his finger on the pulse of what's going on in the Ashland underground where Gin is supposed to be the Queen. He's Johnny on the spot with his phone, and briefcase, while being diplomatic in dealing with the assassin known as the Spider. But, while you might think that Silvio has his ducks in a row in all aspects of his life, there is one part that he has had trouble. That aspect is finding romance.
Nice Guys Bite is a novella that is nearly perfect in every way. Silvio has definitely grown on me since he became one of Gin's trusted advisers, and his coffee date will definitely go down in the more twisted and entertaining that we've seen. Nice Guys Bite has a whole lot of what readers have come to expect from the author. There is blood, bodies, betrayal, BBQ, and loved ones who have accepted Silvio into their girl of friends and family. A perfect story for the Holiday season!
