From two bestselling authors—the first in a deliciously bold new series that takes readers to the most dangerous edge of desire . . .
Nikolai: I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. The stars on my knees, the marks on my fingers, the dagger in my neck, all spoke of danger. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you’d have. I have ever been the hunter, never the prey. With her, I am the mark and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her, I will bring the world down around their ears.
Daisy: I’ve been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Home-schooled and farm-raised, I’m so naive that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best about people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he’s terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him, but because he’s the only man who has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him, my heart is at risk . . . and also, my life.
Review: Hitman #1: Last Hit
Last Hit by Jessica Clare & Jen Frederick is the first story in their Hitman series.
A stunning story of a Ukranian hitman who has struggled every day of his life to survive and a beautiful young woman who was sheltered to a fault by her father's own diseased mind.
Daisy has escaped her father's self-made prison and is managing to make her own way in a big town. With a roommate and a job and a confusing new friend in Nick.
Nick (AKA Nikolai) is beyond taken with Daisy. He knows in his heart he is not worthy of her beauty and innocence but he can't help but covet her. He makes it his goal to protect her, when he's not working a hit, that is.
A well-paced, stunning twist of light and dark that will leave you hooked on this series and these characters and the secondary characters on whom the next book is based. I can't wait to start Last Breath.
