    I received an advance reader s copy in exchange for an honest review My Review of the first book The Intern s Handbookand the short story Casual Friday I read the first book, The Intern s Handbook, months ago, but I can still remember most of what happened in it It was an amazing introduction to John Lago JL is one of those fictional characters that stick with you, even after reading He has a James Bond aura that I really like James Bond is one of my favorite characters, and JL feels likeI received an advance reader s copy in exchange for an honest review My Review of the first book The Intern s Handbookand the short story Casual Friday I read the first book, The Intern s Handbook, months ago, but I can still remember most of what happened in it It was an amazing introduction to John Lago JL is one of those fictional characters that stick with you, even after reading He has a James Bond aura that I really like James Bond is one of my favorite characters, and JL feels like his son.This book continues where the first book left off JL being a character I already like, this was an easy read for me Alice was also really good in this novel Both of them developed evenand the twists were really good too While this novel focused on their relationshipthan the action, I still found this book enjoyable The writing of the author was great as usual, and the romance was not cheesy in any way possible I m really liking the JL Alice team.The only thing that didn t make me rate this a 5 would be the ending The twist in the end was not good enough for me I didn t see it coming, but it wasn t grand either I was hoping for somethingdramatic but I guess it wasn t that bad The overall novel was amazing, and I can t wait forJL adventures.4 5 stars The first book was still slightly better than this, but not by a lot While the first one had aappealing plot, this book wascharacter centered I like character centered books but the first one had an amazing plot, so my expectations for this second one was aplot oriented novel I can t wait to readof the series The author replied to my tweet saying that there will bebooks to come in the series My only problem would be the unbearable waiting Highly recommended

    This book was so much better than the first one John Lago and Alice get together in one of the most memorable weddings ever Lol They are both the coolest assassins with great one liners It s like Mr and Mrs Smith, but cooler.

    OVERALL RATING 3.5 stars Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic OVERVIEW ANALYSIS I was thoroughly enad by The Intern s Handbook as it combined action, intricate plot twists and showed a super slice of dark humor that befit a story of a hitman for hire We got to learn about John Lago and his initiation into HR, Inc The story involved one last job before John retires however the story with all its twists and action packed climax wowed me completely The story ended on a couple of massi OVERALL RATING 3.5 stars Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic OVERVIEW ANALYSIS I was thoroughly enad by The Intern s Handbook as it combined action, intricate plot twists and showed a super slice of dark humor that befit a story of a hitman for hire We got to learn about John Lago and his initiation into HR, Inc The story involved one last job before John retires however the story with all its twists and action packed climax wowed me completely The story ended on a couple of massive twists and the ending basically begs the reader to grab the sequel Hostile Takeover begins with John Lago surprisingly in a holding cell in Quantico, Virginia in the present day The story then goes back to three years to that night wherein The Intern s Handbook ended so precariously We get to see what happens next and going with the tone of the preceding novel, it seems completely appropriate We find that Alice and John have decided to get hitched and take over HR, Inc They do manage to take over after getting rid of the new Bob and find themselves with a gaggle of Interns who are awed by John They the interns having read John s work, look up to him and soon John Alice have things going top notch The only issue, there might be a mole and John still doesn t know who truly controls HR It will be up to both these psychopaths to add their mental muscle along with their killing finesse to figure out the answers The only problem, can they survive each other s love I enjoyed this sequel as I was expectingof the kickass humor along with dark, action packed plot The story does seem to build on the story that was introduced and this time around, the thrill is finding out what exactly happened for John to land up in the FBI s clutches The story from its start has a streamlined structure that makes the reader zip through the story Plus the action and intrigue are present and doubled due to certain happenings in the story However this sequel certainly doesn t quite hold up to the excellence that was The Intern s Handbook One thing that went against it is the dark humour and the snappy quotes that were such a core part of The Intern s Handbook This book while being a fun sequel plays a little differently and islike a straight thriller The plot twists in this one while being zany aren t entirely unpredictable The middle part of the story went through a predictable route with regards to Alice and John and again in the ending The twist that the plot hinges upon isn t entirely believable and hence that dulled the read for me CONCLUSION Hostile Takeover is a fun sequel that tries to build up on the predecessor and while it had its good moments, for me it was a good book that didn t quite match the high of The Intern s Handbook You ll enjoy it if you go in with an open mind and don t expect too much

    This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. John Lago is back, folks and he picks up right where he left off, with some of the most adrenaline and testosterone fueled writing you ll come across this year That may not be your cup of tea Hostile Takeover is one of those sequels I didn t think needed to exist Seriously, who was dissatisfied with where things ended up for Lago It was narratively sufficient as it was but as the opening lines of this book could ve literally been This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. John Lago is back, folks and he picks up right where he left off, with some of the most adrenaline and testosterone fueled writing you ll come across this year That may not be your cup of tea Hostile Takeover is one of those sequels I didn t think needed to exist Seriously, who was dissatisfied with where things ended up for Lago It was narratively sufficient as it was but as the opening lines of this book could ve literally been the next page in The Intern s Handbook, it s hard to complain So, John decides to tie up two loose ends 1 Alice and 2 HR, Inc He marries Alice and the two take over HR but it doesn t take too long at least not many pages before both of those go wrong they break up and she kicks him out of the company not really spoiler material, folks, it s in the Jacket Copy John switches to Plan B, the complete destruction of both Which is not the most mature of plans, you ve got to admit.Which is the bulk of the book John going undercover again, John trying and or being the target of elaborate assassination schemes, great fight scenes and enough munitions used to make Michael Bay choke All delivered in that movie obsessed, rapid fire no pun intended narration that won over so many fans before.I thoroughly enjoyed, have used already, and will continue to do so, Lago s comments on the movie Fletch It was that line that reminded me how much I liked the first book.Did I enjoy this as much as The Intern s Handbook Nope Only because it didn t blow me away with it s freshness But it s a worthy sequel, as good as it s predecessor and leaves me wantingAn intense, fast read buckle up and enjoy the ride
