Imagine a vicious, cold-blooded, heartless villain who canes children and kicks puppies. Tim will totally kill that guy for you, if you pay him and provide proof. But if you're just using him to knock out your own evil empire competition, look out. You'll be paying for your own funeral.
In the first book of this fast, funny, and fascinating series, Tim takes up shop in his sister's town. When he takes his sister's bestie on a job, she falls in love with his target and he finds himself having to save lives for once.

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for an honest review.
This was an alright novel. It was well written and characterised well, but at points the plot escaped me and I had trouble following it.
"Quick and fast paced"
Dramatic and intense. This book was named aptly. For anyone who enjoys criminal thrillers, this book is a must. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, narrator, and/or publisher.
"Like a Pilot Episode to a TV Show"
Since I am a fan of Gwendolyn Druyor’s narration, I wanted to give one of her own books a try. Since she is a great narrator, I figured that the performance alone would be worth it.
We get a super fast story that reunites Kissy with her friend’s brother, Tim. He takes her out on a job with him, since he is a KC—Killer with a Conscience. Along the way, we meet police officer Avi, who sings bass and hits it off with musical firecracker Kissy.
This is a short work. I knew that going into it, but I still wanted more. I would say the best way to think of this is a pilot episode to a TV series. It puts all the characters in place and gives us glimpses to what might come up in the future, such as a love triangle between Kissy, Tim and Avi. There are several more stories after this, so you can listen to the further adventures of Kissy, Tim and Avi just to be sure.
Druyor’s narration is as good as I expected it to be. There were some clever parts to this story that I rather liked. For example, near the end we meet a dominatrix who had a very unique way of capturing her intended target. I liked it so much I had to tell several people I knew who appreciate a good whodunnit. The name Avi may or may not be a reference to the wonderful bass singer Avi Kaplan from the group Pentatonix, but he was the Avi who immediately came to my mind.
I recommend this to those who only have time for quick reads/listens and who like a fast-paced mystery. There isn’t a lot of explicit sex or violence, but due to length there just isn’t time for it. If you like this one, there are several other stories to go with it.

Enjoyed the story and anxious to see what happens next! Great narration. Characters felt very realistic.
"Killing is good for the soul!"
A killer with a conscience. Not all of them have one. But our boy does. The target of his contract is his girlfriend's new acquaintance. Find out he is a nice guy and cancels said contract.
Didn't go over to well with the holders of the contract, so they decide to take a few things and make him fulfill it.
What happens next is the good part.
"This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."
Ecstasy: Killer on Call Book one by Gwendolyn Druyor was a good quick read. Time is a guy that kills bad guys, as long as you pay him and provide proof of the persons wrongdoing. Tim bring's his sisters best friend to one of his jobs. Little did he know, she would fall in love with his target. I enjoyed reading this book and can't wait to read more in the series.
