Newlyweds have lots to deal with, however, most marriages don’t involve professional assassins. Setsuna has been trained to hide her emotions, but that hasn’t stopped her from being a doting and loving wife!
My Lovey-Dovey Wife is a Stone Cold Killer (Volume 1) – Till Death Do Us Part?
Her husband works a fairly regular office job. Sometimes, they even get to have lunch together when she’s on a job downtown. It might seem crazy, but Setsuna has a lot of the same issues that he does. Her colleagues have been pressuring her to go out for drinks after work. She’s definitely not a morning person either, which is to be expected as assassins often work at night. Regardless, she does everything she can to be a good and loving wife. She’s a great cook and very handy with a knife… of course!
One day, when Setsuna is getting a little frustrated, her husband takes her to a batting cage and teaches her how to play baseball. It turns out, she would have a good backup career if she ever decided to stop being an assassin. There are also lots of things to do around the house as they settle in and get used to living together. Things are still incredibly new and both are still coming to terms with living and sleeping under the same roof. Setsuna may not show her emotions too often, but it’s clear that these two are smitten with one another.

So, this is a cute story. It’s been a while since I was a newlywed, but I remember a lot of the things that they are going through. That said, I am curious how they met and ended up getting married as they don’t seem to know a great deal about each other. Maybe, we’ll find out in future volumes. There are a lot of laughs in this book too. One of my favourites was when they were having lunch together and Setsuna got a call. She ran off to take care of business and in the background, you could see someone pleading for their life.
One thing that did annoy me was that we never learnt Setsuna’s husband’s name. I was about halfway through when it hit me that they hadn’t mentioned it. Even when she added him to her family’s group chat, it just showed as “me” because we were looking at his phone. Now, it’s not a big deal, but it does feel kind of odd.
Now, I’m sure that won’t bother many people, so if you’re looking for a cute story about newlyweds with some darker humour then this is going to be the book for you. It was fun and I will definitely be checking out the next one.
