Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-seller 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.

Short and predictable Silvio

This short story features Silvio, Gin’s assistant. She shooed him from work and constantly following her to make him go on a date and get a life outside of the blood and death that was part of the Ashland underworld.
It was really predictable and didn’t really add much to the overall narrative of the Spider’s journey. It was decent

Short

Well done if you are not very familiar with the series, but some knowledge is probably neccessary.

Short story - fine for $1

This is more of an urban fantasy caper than an MM romance. It’s short and predictable and doesn’t add anything to the series. I think it will be meaningless unless you’ve read part of the series (and ideally book 15, or books 10-15, which is about where this Silvio character enters the series). My biggest gripe was that the narrator made Silvio the vampire seem like some old, sweater wearing accountant… which is not the dark, dashing MC I was hoping for.

An interesting story.

This was my first book by Jennifer Estep. It's part of her Elemental Assassin series but I enjoyed it as a stand-alone story.

Gin Blanco and her assistant are preparing for a holiday party but Gin encourages Silvio to go on a date with a handsome guy who's caught Silvio's eye.

From the intro I thought that maybe this was going to be an MM romance (which I love) but it really turned out to not be a romance at all – and that was fine. The story held my interest and the narration by David Marantz was very good. There were a lot of things happening in this short audiobook. Some great action scenes and some pretty descriptive bloody ones, too.

This short glimpse into the Elemental Assassin world piqued my interest enough for me to look into other stories in this series.

Where's Lauren Fortgang?

I really don't get why publishers think they need to change the female narrators in well established series to males just because there's a novella from a guy's POV. 9 times out of 10 the female narrators male voices are far more convincing than the male narrators female voices. This guy makes Gin sound like Barry White and he doesn't even do her accent! When you've listened to 14 books in a series you get used to the voices and other narrators just sound wrong. On top of that, this narrator just isn't that good. Glad this part of the romance package and I didn't waste a credit.

As for the story, it's a fun little novella featuring a great character we don't get enough of! Worth buying the e-book, not worth a credit.

Interesting look into this world

If you have ever wondered what happened with other members of the Spider's world this is a great opportunity. Although quite short it gives us an opportunity to see that Gin's friends are just as protective of her as she is of them.

ok listen

the story was good and so was the narration. The only thing that I didn't like was Gin's voice. Even though it was only a tiny part of the listen, it was still enough for me to be glad that I got the book as part of the romance package and didn't have to use a credit.

Fun-fun-fun

This is a great addition to the Spider's world. Silvio's emotions were strong . I got right into his story. It is a good book.

Nice short story

Gin’s personal assistant finally gets his own story!! A coffee date gone awry, Silvio proves that he can be as resourceful as his boss in a fight! A fun novella with plenty of action. The narrator did a good job. AUDIBLE 20 REVIEW SWEEPSTAKES ENTRY
