Review: Last Hit: Reloaded (Hitman #2.5) by Jessica Clare & Jen Frederick

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.

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

True love will overcome all boundaries and find a way…it will not be denied!

This is a remarkable novella by an incredible team of writers, Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare.  It begins after the end of the second book in the Hitman series and is a continuation of Nick and Daisy’s story.  In this novella the reader will get a look at the life they have made together in American.  The path that the two lovers embark on is not an easy journey, especially when they are trying to find normal where normal is abnormal in both their previous lives.    

We are drawn into Nick and Daisy’s new life.  They are trying to establish a new life, a new identity and a new norm together. Nick’s love for Daisy is without reservations or restrictions.  She owns him body and soul and he would do anything to protect her.  He knows that something is bothering her and needs to find out what it is so that he can take care of the problem. 

Daisy loves Nick and is willing to sacrifice anything for him.  She just doesn’t understand why everyone is keeping her at arm’s length at school.  Could it be that they are afraid of Nick?  Once upon a time she had been frightened by him. How can she help him with his new start in becoming an American if his past is always just around the corner?  Will they be able to put the past behind and live their HEA?

Sometimes the past refuses to release those that try to flee, especially when that past is out for revenge no matter the cost! Daisy and Nick will need to depend on each other and Nick’s skills to survive what is coming after them.

Would I recommend this book: Yes! Reformed bad boy protects and cares for his sexy innocent one and only in this hot read about their life together and their HEA. 

Would I recommend this author: Yes! Two heads are definitely better than one and this amazing series proves that point! The collaboration by these two amazing authors is evident in the product they produce for their readers. Their characters are well developed and defined while the story’s many twist keep you actively involved.  The Hit Man Series is a must read!
