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 reading¬†Last Kiss next. This one is with Naomi who was Daniel’s sister.

Merry and Bright is a collection of short stories by Jill Shalvis. Reading books by this author you know that there will be some humor and compassion when it comes to these characters and it was true for these stories. All of these stories centered around the Christmas season which brought out the wishes for finding someone to love. Now even though it was the Christmas season there was still danger that drifted through these stories. The danger was not bombs exploding but harmless stalkers, Colorado’s wildlife and a half kind of crazy girl. For me I thought the danger was a little silly at times but it gave the hero and heroine something to survive and to bring them together.

Overall I thought these were cute and fun stories.

Against the Law

Against the LawDev Raines was semi retired but thanks to his friend he was back with a case that was anything but simple. He will be running into a different situation that started unfolding into a nefarious plot.

Lark Delaney needed help for what she thought would be a simple search. With Dev she tagged along hoping to find her niece that was given up for adoption but what she found was a shady adoption agencies.

Against the Law is Kat Martins third book to Raines of Wind Canyon series. So far the books have been very good to read. I loved Dev’s strong take charge attitude and the mystery of this simple case. The case started out as a simple search but was so much more and because of that you are drawn into the story and all the obstacles that stood in the way.

I was pulled into this book almost faster than the others because of the plot and mystery but also how Dev and Lark were written to be. The characters of Dev and Lark were one of the same with their tough exteriors that were built up like an armor but it was appropriate as their past lead them to be this way. I liked that the story kept going but not in a straight line. Nothing heartbreaking but a lot of action and surprises.

At the end of the story we are given a happy ending for these brothers and ending their stories. Kat Martin will be continuing with the series but branching off with characters that were mentioned already in the book, like the men who were working with the brothers.
