Description

When life gives Kuro Jenkins lemons, he wants to make ponzu to serve at his Los Angeles ramen shop.  

Instead, he’s dodging bullets and wondering how the hell he ended up back in the Black Ops lifestyle he left behind him. After rescuing former child star Trey Bishop from a pair of thugs in the middle of the night, he knows it’s time to pick up his gun again. But it seems trouble isn’t done with Trey, and Kuro can’t quite let go...of either the gun or Trey Bishop.  

Trey Bishop never denied his life’s downward spiral was his own fault. After a few stints in rehab, he’s finally shaken off his Hollywood bad-boy lifestyle but not his reputation. The destruction of his acting career and his relationships goes deep, and no one trusts anything he says, including the LAPD. When two men dragging a dead body spot him on a late-night run and try to murder him, Trey is grateful for the tall, dark, and deadly ramen shop owner he lusts over - not just for rescuing him, but also for believing him.  

Now caught in a web of murders and lies, Trey knows someone wants him dead, and the only one on his side is a man with deep, dark secrets. Trey hopes Kuro Jenkins will stick around to see what the future holds for them once the dust settles, but from the looks of things, neither of them may survive to find out.

Another excellent story by Rhys Ford and narrating by Kale Williams

Loved the fast paced action in this story, but it's the main characters, Kuro and Trey, who make the story. Both have baggage, Kuro, a former black ops man, now owned of a Ramen shop, and Trey, child actor, whose burned more than a few personal and professional bridges. Loved that each could see past the baggage and especially that Kuro could see the goodness in The and how hard he was working to get control of his life. Kale William's narrating was wonderful as usual! I've yet to listen to anything he's narrated that I haven't loved!

So Good

I loved the book and the audio version did not disappoint. Kale Williams did a wonderful job narrating. Rhys Ford spins a fabulous tale of intrigue and relationships. One of the things I love about her books is the low angst factor. The storyline is perfect with twists and turns that keep one guessing until the end. I hope this isn’t the last we hear from Kuro and Tre.

Very entertaining!

First of all suspend all beliefs, because this book is way OTT. It’s entertaining for sure, and if you are a fan of a lot of action – as in flying bullets and an explosion or two – you might want to check this book out. But go into this book wanting to be entertained by a fast paced book and don’t expect it to be anywhere near the world of reality.

For some reason I really liked this book, I shouldn’t have, but I did. The plot was beyond unbelievable and our two main guys made it out of one death trap after the other with barely a scratch to show for it. And when you add in the cliché of disbelieving and unintelligent and bullying cops and some family drama, it should be a no-brainer for me to dislike this book big time. But it wasn’t. It worked for me. I think Rhys Ford might just be magical.

There were a few things that I didn’t like with this book. The first one being the romance between Kuro and Trey. It didn’t feel genuine. It was just suddenly there out of seemingly nowhere. I missed the building tension and getting to know you part, the longing glances and hearts that go pitter-patter. Granted, romance tend to end up in the backseat (not literally) when running for your life. But still, I wanted something more in that department.

Then there was the plot in general. It almost read like a movie. With lots of different things going on, exciting action scenes from one moment to the next. For a movie that works, for a book, you need something more, to have a flow of events that makes sense from start to finish. You need more depth.

Despite all this I really had a great time listening to this story. Kuro and Trey were interesting characters, they both have issues and flaws and I want to see much more of them and this world in general. There is a lot of promise to build on for future stories.

I’ll be honest with you. When I first saw that Kale Williams was narrating this book I was disappointed. He hasn’t been one of my favourite narrators in the past, and I was really looking forward to this book. But I have to say, Williams did it again. I truly loved his narration of this book. With his passion he brought it to life. I love is intensity and how he varies it after the situation. He truly made me enjoy listening to this book. Plus, he has a very nice voice that makes my ears very happy.

Ramen Assassin was a good start to a new series, and I’m eager to know more.

Good writing but trigger warning

The prose was fantastic and Rhys is great with emotions. Spoiler ahead for people who get triggered. There's important character death done in a very puts your mind in the moment of panic and emergency way. It's very strong and especially when listening to it can be overwhelming since it was done so well. Which is also a good reason to listen if you don't have problems.

Overall 4.25 stars

I loved the chemistry and fast pace action that can through this audio book. This is first audio book as Kale Williams as the narrator and his performance was excellent. His accents and different voices was on point. Great listening experience!

Great blend of action, passion and in depth story

I like my romance well seasoned with action, intrigue and mystery and Ramen Assassin was a perfect blend. Didn't get bored with the sexy parts, mystery was well entwined in story telling and not too much angst. Characters were believable and easy to love. Couple that with Kale Williams telling the story and it warrants another five star rating for Rhys Ford.

great story

I enjoyed the story line a characters. I'm glad the sex wasn't over done. The tension and banter was a total turn on. The reader was a 10.

Great story. Great narration.

Another engaging read from Rhys Ford. Bullets are flying, mysteries are solved, and of course there is a bit of heat between the two main characters.

Exceptional story

Narrator Kale Williams was awesome.

The story is very well written, action packed, and has a little mystery (who wants Trey Bishop dead?) Gun fights, snark, and flying iron skillets. So much fun!
