Product Details


“If you’re the kind of reader who enjoys unique romance novels with an edge, a whole lot of unpredictable twists, and the idea of a seasoned assassins traveling across Europe and falling for the person they’re supposed to kill, this is the book for you! A humorously dark, upsettingly sexy, unique love story about the horrors and delights of being seen as who we really are—with lots of swords and plenty of smut!”
Ali Hazelwood, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Love, Theoretically

“Seductively tense and scandalously hot! It Had To Be You swept me into a star-crossed, hopelessly romantic game of cat and mouse, and I loved every twisted minute of it.”
Elle Cosimano, New York Times bestselling author of Finlay Donovan Is Killing It
“Twisty-turny, slyly funny, and hot as hell—It Had to Be You by Eliza Jane Brazier had me on the edge of my seat. The writing is as sharp as an assassin’s blade, the chemistry between the two rival contract killers absolutely explosive. I had no idea what was about to happen next but I knew I was along for the ride!”
Alicia Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of Love in the Time of Serial Killers  

“Just when I thought I couldn’t love Brazier’s writing any more, she releases It Had to Be You!! Sizzling chemistry, paired with wild plot twists, makes this book impossible to put down—and to forget! 25/10 would recommend!”
Lynn Painter, New York Times bestselling author of Happily Never After

“A slick and sexy international caper of a novel that will leave you gasping for breath in more ways than one. Brazier bestows us with a cute couple of contract killers to root for, but which side will you be on—love or death?”
Rachel Koller Croft, author of Stone Cold Fox

“A twenty-first century O. Henry but more badass—and decidedly feminist—Eliza Jane Brazier is bringing her phenomenal talents to romance.”
Elizabeth Everett, author of The Secret Scientists of London series

“With all the sexy romance of Before Sunrise, plus the twisty, cat and mouse fun of Killing Eve, It Had to Be You is the perfect steamy summer thriller. I had so much fun following Eliza Jane Brazier’s fun, sexy assassins all over Europe, I never wanted it to end. This book will get your pulse racing—for more than one reason.”
Halley Sutton, USA Today bestselling author of The Hurricane Blonde

“Brazier elevates a familiar Mr. and Mrs. Smith–style premise to frenzied heights in this entertaining spy romance… Alternating between the often-unreliable viewpoints of Eva and Jonathan, Brazier delivers exhilarating action, steamy romance, and enough twists to keep the pages flying. It’s a blast.”
Publishers Weekly

“As with her previous novels, Brazier demonstrates she isn’t afraid to flirt with the darker side of the thriller, and here gives romantic suspense a hard-edged makeover. Expertly switching the narrative between her two protagonists, the author fashions a high-adrenaline, twisty plot.” 
Library Journal

“Eliza Jane Brazier is quickly becoming a favorite, and the newest title from her has a perfect premise.”
