Last Hit: Reloaded (Hitman Series) Book 2.5
Nickolai & Daisy’s Story continues...
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.
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.

When Kennedy Ryan moves to California, she never expects to come face-to-face with Liam Taylor-the intriguing man she hasn’t been able to forget. Somehow Liam managed to get Kennedy to let down her guard for a single night of passion that ended up meaning more than it was ever supposed to. Accustomed to disastrous experiences with men, Kennedy shields herself before he can break down more of the carefully built control she’s clung to for the last four years. But every time she sees Liam, she feels her resolve weakening.
Liam Taylor has been asked to befriend his boss’s nieces. But what starts out as a reluctant favor ends up leading Liam to the only girl who ever slipped away before morning-a girl he thought he’d never find again. And now that she’s within reach, Liam’s determined to never let her go.
When a secret from her past tests their relationship, will they be able to cling to the trust Liam has worked so hard to build?

Did everyone have a good holiday? I enjoyed it while it lasted but I'm glad it's over! I've had so much going on that I'm hoping now everything can balance its self out.
I haven't been able to focus on reading as much as I would like, but I did get a chance to read Kresley Cole's THE PROFESSIONAL, the first book in her Game Maker series. I really enjoyed it. If you like your romance books to have dark, broken heroes & and sweet but not too naive heroines, some BDSM, lots of hot, alpha manliness, and some Transporter/Jason Bourne style action/adventure, then you should love this book too.
Then I read Elise Sax's YA novel FOREVER NOW the story of Tess and Cruz. Tess's mother and Cruz's father abandon them their senior year of high school and together they find a way to survive. Not all paths are easy, but together they strive to make it. Forging a friendship that should take them into forever.
Here are some of the books I get to choose my next read from...I have NO idea which one I will end up reading first, through eventually they'll all get read. ;)
