Malibu isn’t ready for what’s coming.

When Nysys asks him to share a house in Malibu for a week of fun, Jago jumps on the opportunity. He wants Corbin to experience what a vacation is and to relax, hoping that it will help him step away from his unconventional upbringing.

Corbin would do anything for his mate, so he doesn’t hesitate to say yes when Jago tells him about the vacation on the beach. He could do without all the other people there, especially the weird pink-haired guy, Nysys. Corbin can tell Nysys is trouble with a capital T from the first time he sees him.

And he’s not wrong. What do you get when you put together sun, sand, and a drunken watermelon? Trouble.

I loved The Assassin’s First Vacation by Catherine Lievens. It’s the twenty-fourth and a half book in the Gillham Pack series, and in it, we get a glimpse into how Corbin and his mate, Jago, are doing. Corbin’s still struggling with showing emotions, but luckily Jago can feel what he’s feeling through the mate bond. Corbin will do anything in his power to make his mate happy, and so he doesn’t even hesitate when his mate tells him about the vacation on the beach that Nysys has invited them on. Nysys is carefree and impulsive and has a way of getting into trouble, but luckily it’s usually the fun kind, even if it leads to massive hangovers the next day and thoughts of oh dear god, what did I do last night. Well for the first time ever Corbin gets to be part of the madness and gaiety when Nysys spikes a watermelon and Jago forgets to mention it to Corbin. Everybody has a wild night, and I loved finally getting to see Corbin’s ridged control come down if only for the one night. My only wish is that the story had been longer I would have liked to have seen how the other four days of their vacation went, especially after their first wild night on vacation.

I really enjoyed the characters in the story, and I want to know more about them, and I can’t wait to go back and read about Nysys and his mate Morin, Jago and Corbin, Jonah and Keenan, and Craig and Thomas. And with the way the books for this series are named for the main character that it’s about, I won’t have any problems figuring out which book in the series to read. All I have to figure out is which of the couples I want to read about first.

I have a feeling it will probably be Jago and Corbin first and then Nysys and Morin next, and after that, I’m not sure, but I do know that I won’t be disappointed.
