Last Hope

Last HopeRafe was born poor and he raised himself up from the gutter. He had become a mercenary and with his latest job he was looking for something that a woman had clutched in her purse. Rafe will be torn. He will want what Ava is carrying but he will want her and want to save her.

Ava’s best friend is being held hostage and to make sure she survives Ava has to play the part of mule to these criminals. She will be in way over her head but she had no choice. But things just might get easier when she meets Rafe who will offer help.

Last Hope is the fifth book to the series Hitman by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick. I liked this book but at times I have it say it was a little over the top with one or two scenarios. Although that didn’t stop me from finishing the book.

So the character of Ava was someone who would do anything for a friend, which I liked. Though because of that loyalty it gets Ava into trouble. When Ava was first introduced she was timid and scared but you could tell she was tough. She shows ability to adapt when she teams up with Rafe. Now the character of Rafe. I liked Rafe’s character. He was a good man and a tough man. He was someone you wanted on your side. I liked that Rafe didn’t just drop everything for Ava. He had to keep going with his mission but he adjust what needed to be done.

Throughout the book you knew that there had to be a budding romance, and there certainly was one between Rafe and Ava. I don’t mind these scenes but sometimes you want a little more plot so you really get to know the characters. Though that is the theme with this series and Clare does a good job.

Last Kiss

Last KissNaomi was kidnapped eighteen months ago and the only way she knew to survive was to tell her captors she could make them rich as she was talented with computers. She helped the leader make millions but soon she will find herself rescued and then taken again by a different man. Only he wanted more than just her help, he wanted her as well.

Vasily had one goal which was to get back his sister. He would do anything for his sister which meant taking a woman who would get him to his goal. Although Vasily had not expected Naomi. She was unique and let him feel things that he had buried long ago.

Last Kiss is the third book from the series Hitman by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick. I liked the book. It was once again with a man from a troubled group and a woman that needed to be rescued but I liked that Naomi was not your average victim. Naomi had Asperger s but a mild form of the disease. I liked how curious she was but also so fearful of germs that she went into panic mode. Her character stayed consistent through out the book. But her character also grows especially with the strength that Vasily gives to Naomi. With him at her side she could handle all the terrible things that come her way. So then there is Vasily’s character. He is a bad guy but he is a bad guy for a reason. He had to protect his sister years ago and by doing what he did he created his own reputation for being ruthless. Although Vasily is not as terrible as I thought. I liked that he helped Naomi and was understanding about the situation because they both shared a desire not to be touched. The characters though will get over that desire not to be touched especially when they are together.

So the bad guys are pretty evil men and some sick minded individuals. Though that is nothing new in these books. The bad guys all are pretty twisted with the business they have or activities they participate in. There was one villain in particular that I was very happy to read their end.

At the end of the book there was a quick story that was titled Last Gift which was about Nick and Daisy. It was very short but it gave another look at the couple and how they were doing. It was a good quick read.

I am reading Last Hope next which is the fifth book to the series. I saw on the list there is a fourth book titled Last Hit: Reloaded and I would read that by my library doesn’t have it, I am sure I will find it at one point. Until then I am reading the fifth book next.

Last Breath

Last BreathDaniel was on a mission to find Regan. He will be shocked to find her a fighter and will become fascinated with the woman. He will do anything to protect Regan and at the same time find the men who took his sister.

Regan was living in a hellhole for the last two months and knew that no one was coming to get her. But Regan would not give up and let the bastards win. Though Regan will be rescued by a man who had been sent by Daisy, and she will fight to get back home.

Last Breath is the second book to the series Hitman by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick. I liked the book. I think that since I just read the first one I knew what to expect and it flowed really well, even with all the horrible things that happened.

Well there was certainly a lot of bad things that happened in the book. The major was with what happened to Regan’s character. I really liked her character but I felt it was a little unbelievable that she would be raped repeatedly and then want to be with Daniel later on in the book. And that was only just a few days after meeting him. Although I did like her with Daniel because it gave her someone to be happy with again. What I liked was that Regan’s character wasn’t broken. She was on the verge of being broken but it had not happened. So then there is Daniel’s character. He was strong and skilled in warfare. I liked that he was easy going but he was very lethal at the same time. His story was interesting as he was looking for his sister who had also been taken.

So I was really happy that the authors gave a conclusion with Mike, Regan’s boyfriend before she was taken. I liked it because it gave closure to Regan.

I am continuing with the series and will be readingĀ Last Kiss next. This one is with Naomi who was Daniel’s sister.

Last Hit

Last HitNikolai was a trained assassin since he was a young boy. He has killed many. When Nikolai meets Daisy he will want her instantly but he has to be careful as he has enemies who will be after him, and Daisy.

Daisy needed freedom from the life she had lived and she takes that chance. She will move out and be on her own for the first time. It is then that she meets Nikolai and everything in her life will change.

Last Hit is the first book to the series Hitman by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick. First off I did like the book but it took some time to truly get into it. Don’t get me wrong, there was intrigue and I wanted to know what the heck was going on, but it took some time for me to really like the novel. A part of the reason I think was it was just so different from her other series. Though once I was into the story I was in it for the whole book.

Daisy’s character was a sweet, naive girl who was in way over her head. I liked her character for the most part but she was a little too trusting, and that was too unbelievable. Though I did like that she gave Nikolai a chance because you knew that she would find what she needed with him. Now Nikolai is a dangerous man. He has been a trained assassin for many years. He will be watching Daisy, which I will say is a little creepy. Although that is is job. I found myself liking Nikolai. He was a man stuck in a job that he was trained to do, not something he loved. I liked that he was starting to change thanks to Daisy.

So there is some definite danger that surrounds the book. You would think something would happen because this book was about an assassin. I was surprised with how the situation turned bad, but after thinking about it you knew something would happened.

I am going to be continuing the series and will be reading Last Breath next.
