    • Synopsis
    • When you’re sick, a hospital is where you go to get better. Or in Frankie’s case, it’s where your mother goes to get covertly murdered. For scientific research. But let’s rewind, shall we? Frankie was an event planner who had average problems, an average life, an average boyfriend with a below average — you get it. But after the crushing blow of her mother’s malpractice death, everything in her life changed, including Frankie. And when no one was being held accountable for her homicide, she did what a very unaverage person would do: she became an assassin.
      Her plan was to exact vengeance on every single person involved in the elaborate hospital scheme. But what she quickly learned was that not only is killing super illegal, it’s also way harder than it looks in the movies. So she quit. Jk, she decided to hire a professional to help her out, because that’s what successful event planners do.
      Enter Razor, a discharged and slightly deranged Special Operative. He’s the perfect person to train her to become a deadly weapon and the perfect person for her frame all the bloodshed on. Razor’s one job away from retiring and nothing will stand in his way – that is until the two develop feelings for each other. As emotions run hot and bodies pile up, Frankie struggles with the unbearable truth: Revenge may never heal her broken heart but an unexpected and highly dangerous love just might.
      But before Frankie can have her happy ending, everything comes crashing down when she discovers Razor has actually been hired to protect her on her vengeful quest, by Varga: a dangerous criminal/her estranged father. But make no mistake about it, Varga’s fatherly gesture only safeguards his daughter to an extent. Once Frankie starts to meddling in her dad's business – uncovering truths about her mother's death – Frankie and Razor must put their betrayal aside and work together to keep Frankie out of the crosshairs and finally give Varga what he deserves.
