Last Hit: Reloaded (Hitman Series) Book 2.5
There was a time when Nick loved the fear he instilled in his enemies. His tattoos alone promised danger, but it was the look in his eyes that delivered on it. A contract killer since he was just a boy, Nick has now forged a new life and a new identity with the woman who followed him, captured him, and changed him.
He terrified Daisy. Once. But she couldn't resist, and she ignored every warning. It paid off. Now she's part of a new beginning, a fresh start in America helping him to leave behind a reckless and violent past as a professional killer. But the past is never easy to outrun, especially when so much of it thrives on revenge.A new threat has emerged from the shadows, and now Nick and Daisy have no choice but to rely on Nick's killer skills to protect them from everything they've tried so hard to escape.
Between each caress I tell her how she consumes me. “I think of you always. Art is about passion. In every curve, I see your breast and in every face, I see your lips. In rolling hills of landscapes, I envision the dip in your waist and the rise of your hip. In the tendrils of vines, I see your honey hair entangling me.” The depths of my obsession are laid bare for her. If I were to lose her, I would be nothing. I would burn myself to ashes so that the winds could carry me to the four corners and where each molecule would search endlessly for her.
“You’re always with me, Nick. In my heart and mind and soul. I promise you,” she gasps.
“Then show me how much you want me to fill you. Show me your desire.”
Whatever it was, the women in my classes steer clear of me.
I can’t blame Nick. He wants to keep me safe, and I love him for it. After my kidnapping last year by Yuri and Vasily, I don’t mind his hovering. It makes me feel secure, even if it chases away any chance of friendship with “regular” people.
As I swipe my iPad and open the text to the class’s lesson, I tell myself that these things don’t matter. That the approval of my peers does not matter to me. I have Nick, and that should be everything.
But in some ways, not having any girlfriends to chat with makes me feel as if I am still that isolated young woman living in a boarded-up house with my father. I had no friends then, either. And funnily enough, I thought that friends and life would come easily once I escaped his house. And while Nick blazed his way into my life like a comet and paved a path for me, I still struggle with everyday things.
Like small talk. I never realized how much of a favor my friend Regan did me when she took me under her wing. But now Regan’s in Texas and I’m having to figure things out on my own.
Last Hit was the first book I read by Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare and I absolutely loved it. It was fast paced, fascinating, dark, hot, and so many other good things all wrapped into one book. I loved seeing Nikolai and Daisy in the next book in the series, but it wasn't the long exposure I would've liked so this novella put me right where I wanted to be, back in their world. This maybe a novella, but it has the feeling of a novel.
The story starts with Nikolai and Daisy settled and trying to live civilian lives. You'd think it'd be a mundane thing, but it's not. They've both been through so much and with their unconventional bringing up, they're finding it easy to cleave to one another but hard to fit in. Plus with Nikolai, rather Nick's expertise, he's still always on the lookout to make sure his woman is safe.
I really liked seeing them trying to assimilate. It was hard sometimes because their hearts were in the right places but it didn't seem like they were getting the results they wanted. I loved how Daisy encouraged Nick to follow what he was talented at, when he doubted himself. And for everyone who thinks this book will be boring, let me reassure you, there's plenty of action. Much of it made me cringe. Daisy has an amazing heart, but she needs to pick her "friends" better. I loved seeing Nick handle Daisy's need for freedom and balance his need for constant surveillance. I also loved getting a glimpse of Daniel and Regan. I look forward to seeing more of them in the future. I was also unaware there is going to be a third book in the series, but now that I know, I'm super excited to read about Naomi and Vasily!

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.
Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the 'naughty parts' of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.
After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
