At First Sight
Release Date: 1st January 2015
Publisher: Quercus Childrens
~A copy was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review~

A girl no one can see
A boy on a mission
A love story with a difference
What happens when an assassin falls in love with his target?
There are people in this world who are Nobodies. No one sees them.
No one notices them.
They live under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.

That's why they make perfect assassins.

The institute finds these people when they're young and takes then away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organisation. And threats must be eliminated.

Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute's monitoring.
But now they're ID'ed Claire and sent seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her.
Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can't make the hit...

I'm not ashamed to admit I love Jennifer Lynn Barnes's The Naturals series, I love reading anything to do with serial killers, anything that delves into psychology and criminology, profiling. Anything. And since I love that series, I was pretty optimistic with At First Sight, which is why I'm so disappointed to say that At First Sight is an example of everything I hate in a book, I know it sounds harsh, but it is.
