'Scuse me While I Kill This Guy by Leslie Langtry review (SWUR #3)

For my third book in the Summer Wrap-Up Read-a-thon (hosted by Jude @In Between & Jen @ Some Like It Paranormal) I read 'Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy (#1 in the Bombay Assassins) by Leslie Langtry!

'Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy (Bombay Assassins, #1) 

I was given this book at the beginning of last month from the author for review.  Overall, let me be honest here, at first the only reason why I said yes to reviewing this one, is because of the title.  I mean come on?  Who can NOT laugh at that?!

Before I go into my thoughts let me tell you a little more about it...

Virginia Bombay (aka Gin...haha real immature people for laughing at the ;)) is living a pretty satisfactory life.  She's got money (in fact she's got quite the hefty trust fund), she's raising a beautiful five year old daughter,  and she's an assassin??

Yes, you read that correct.  Gin is an assassin.  In fact, her ENTIRE family is!  It runs in their genes.  From the age of five training questions asked, and by the time they're fifteen their first killing goes down.  Pretty scary right?

But what happens when Gin meets someone?  Someone who might open her eyes a bit more about a life that she always sort of considered normal?  What he is able to love her for who she is, and still absolutely adore her daughter?  Will her family understand?  And what is up with the family reunion being early this time around? Who in the family is going to die?

Find out in Leslie Langtry's novel 'Scuse Me While I Kill This Guy! Available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon, and Smashwords!

Now to my thoughts!

Now I will admit this book is one of those where everything just happens to fall together to fit a perfectly harmonious circle at the end...however, along the way this book will have you laughing your butt off, shaking your head with humor, and at the same time wondering "Why am I laughing, when they are killing people??"  However, BELIEVE me when I say that is what makes this book brilliant!!

Under any other circumstance, I would never have laughed if someone would have said, "Oh my book is about a family of assassins", instead I would have been thinking, "Ok...well...sorry, not interested!"  But first off that title just absolutely catches my attention, and as soon as you read that first page you'll already find yourself laughing out loud!
I'm serious!!
Another added bonus was that nothing was too graphically written, it was done very mildly, to the point, and hilarious.  And as I was reading I just imagined it as a movie playing in my head.  This would be an absolute hilarious comedy!!  The family would already be pretty hilarious just to watch come alive on the screen!!d 

Overall rating:
I recommend this book for anyone over the age of seventeen, probably because it does involve some adult content, including sex (not too graphic though!), some language, and A LOT of talk of killing!!

So that's it from me, today!

Talk to all later! :)

  1. I have to agree with you on the title. I love it! I might have to add this book to my TBR list. Great review.
