“This book suffered from an insecure heroine, who is TSTL, and way too much sex!” ~ Under the Covers

Where do I start.  I read the first book in this series, which is about the same couple as this short story.  I already had issues with their relationship back in that book.  And then we get this.  This book suffered from an insecure heroine, who is TSTL, and way too much sex!  There I said it.  There is something as too much sex when it’s apparently overtaking the story.  And this story could’ve had potential, I just think the heroine hasn’t shown a whole lot of growth from where she came from in book 1.

Daisy was all about wanting friends this time.  She was so focused on that that she made such silly mistakes and put her life in jeopardy.  Wouldn’t listen to anyone and thought she knew better.  She got on my nerves.  She has Nick who is determined to give her everything she wants, and maybe that’s gotten her spoiled?

I really wish the side story about the deaths Nick was helping solve so they wouldn’t be pinned on him should’ve been developed more.  That would’ve made this story exciting!  Nevertheless, I hope we get to see more from the cop that’s entered their lives.

At this point, I’m not quite sure how I feel about the series.  I love the premise of the hired assassins finding a happily ever after and redeeming themselves.  I’m just not sure this is the right series for me.

About Jessica Clare

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.


About Jen Frederick

Jen Frederick is the USA Today bestselling author of Unspoken, part of the Woodlands series, and Sacked, part of the Gridiron series. She is also the author of the Charlotte Chronicles and has had several books on the Kindle Top 100 list. She lives in the Midwest with a husband who keeps track of life’s details while she’s writing, a daughter who understands when Mom disappears into her office for hours at a time, and a rambunctious dog who does neither.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Thanks for the review, an insecure heroine is a book killer for me.

I read Last Hit when it released and wasn’t a huge fan. :/ I liked the idea of the book but it didn’t work for me. It was overly sexed up for me.

Glad I wasn’t alone! I do think the idea of the series sounds really good, but that same plot (sort of) is done better I think by J.A. Redmerski in KILLING SARAI.
