Book Review: Guns Will Keep Us Together (Bombay Assassins #2) by Leslie Langtry

Dakota Bombay prided himself on his blond Bond image---bad-guy killer by day, lady-killer by night. Then his life gets both shaken and stirred by an irate grandmother demanding a marketing plan for the family assassination business, a precocious six-year-old son Dak never knew he had, and a mysterious redhead who's erased his decades-old preference for blondes.

Suddenly the perennial playboy is knee deep in pie charts and thinking he may have found the perfect mom for his boy. She's smart, funny, and directs a funeral home no less---what could be better? Now if he can just take out a team of rival assassins without getting killed himself, they can all live trigger-happily ever after.

Guns Will Keep Us Together was a fun, fast read.  I really enjoyed book one in the Bombay Assassins series, 'Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy (read my review here), and I jumped at the chance to read more of Leslie Langtry's unique series.  After two and a half years of blogging, I still get a thrill when I actually receive a book that I've requested! 

I love Langtry's wit, writing style, and unique storylines.  The book moved at a great pace and kept me interested the entire time.  My problem was with the narrator, Dakota.  He's a real ladies man and I never quite connected with him.  Much of the time, I didn't even like him!  But, he grew on me and I found myself rooting for his happiness.  

This series is so quirky and fun.  I loved the concise ending and look forward to book three, Stand By Your Hitman.
