The Criminals, 1
Contract killer Felix Zamaro isn’t looking for love—at his age, all he wants to do is retire. When he interrupts a robbery-in-progress, he stumbles into a mess: Nick Banner is in town to help his sister kick her loser boyfriend to the curb.

Nick never thought he’d meet a hot-as-hell assassin in the middle of a random coffee run, but watching Felix take down a couple of thieves in a crappy gas station has him questioning his rule against playing with straight guys.

When Felix’s next mark turns out to be none other than the boyfriend of Nick’s sister, all hell breaks loose. When Nick moves into the house next door to Felix, both men think fate is messing with them. However, it’s Nick’s unexpected career choice that really throws Felix off his game, and for a killer, that could be a fatal mistake.
Be Warned: m/m sex, rimming

Felix is an assassin.  And he is good at it, but he is bored and bored could lead to sloppy which leads to dead.  Then he meets Nick.  He is no longer bored but is he ready for all that Nick brings?

The Nullifier by Erin M. Leaf is first in The Criminals series.  I must say I really liked Felix.  He is so self-contained.  His emotions are rarely engaged…that is until he meets Nick and then he finds himself acting way outside his norm.  I love that Ms. Leaf has this man acting so outside his character.  I also liked that once he decided on something he was comfortable with his decisions and the consequences.  And Nick was just what Felix needed.  He was similar but different.  And he understood Felix.  I enjoyed seeing Felix with Nick.  Nick brought out emotions in Felix even if it was sometimes hard to tell.  This story was a well written quick read and I can’t wait to see where Ms. Leaf will take us in this new world.
