My Immortal Assassin by Carolyn Jewel

Product Description:
Grayson Spencer is hellbent on killing the dark mage who destroyed her life. But when her attempt fails, she is forced to turn to Durian, a feared demon and expert assassin. Newly armed with powerful magic she's barely able to control, she'll do whatever it takes to complete her mission--even surrender to a dangerous fiend whose eyes promise unimaginable pleasure.
Sworn to protect all mages, Durian can't let Gray threaten the uneasy peace among demons, humans, and mages. So he proposes a deal: He'll train Gray to master her gift if she'll bind herself magically to him, submitting to his control. As Gray's powers intensify, so too does Durian's hunger for this fierce, irresistible woman. When the dark mage makes a final play for Gray, will the passion she and Durian share be the key to their survival or the seed of their destruction?

My Thoughts:
This was an entertaining book. I didn't realize at the beginning that it was part of a series but I didn't have any trouble with the story line. Gray is endowed with magic when someone she loved was murdered. Durian saves Gray's life, when he is supposed to kill her, and then teaches her how to use her magic. They have to work together to fight the evil mage and hopefully avenge Titgran's murder.
I enjoyed the interaction between Gray and Durian. The extra characters, I assume several are from the earlier two books in the series, added to the story quite well. I look forward to reading their stories. A couple of the scenes were uncomfortable but not unexpected.
This book was a 3/5. It was a good read and I look forward to more from this author, but it had some very uncomfortable scenes for me.

Thank you to Hachette Books for the review copy of this book. I recieved this book in excahnge for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
