Last Hit: Reloaded (Hitman Series) Book 2.5
last hit reloaded.jpg


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.

Quote 1

Between each caress I tell her how she consumes me. “I think of you always. Art is about passion. In every curve, I see your breast and in every face, I see your lips. In rolling hills of landscapes, I envision the dip in your waist and the rise of your hip. In the tendrils of vines, I see your honey hair entangling me.” The depths of my obsession are laid bare for her. If I were to lose her, I would be nothing. I would burn myself to ashes so that the winds could carry me to the four corners and where each molecule would search endlessly for her.
“You’re always with me, Nick. In my heart and mind and soul. I promise you,” she gasps.
“Then show me how much you want me to fill you. Show me your desire.”

Quote 2

As he turns away, I call to him softly, “Detective McFadden, I would not endanger a soul on that campus. My beloved attends classes there, and it is my greatest desire that she be safe and happy. There are many reasons why I am not the man you seek.”
He swings back quickly. “I don’t think you are the university shooter, if that’s what you’re implying.”
“I imply nothing. I am responding to your litany of complaints and questions about my existence. Your attention does not frighten me, but do not mistake this. If you endanger Daisy or her father in any way, there will not be enough pieces left of you for even your loved ones to identify.”
At my threat, he gives me a bemused smile. “But you don’t give a rat’s ass about yourself?”
“I can take care of myself, Detective, and anyone that I love.” The chill is seeping into my bones, and I need to go inside and warm myself in the sunshine of Daisy’s love. “Good evening to you.” I nod and open the front door of the building.


Quote 3

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.

Although I'm #TeamDaniel, I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for Nick and Daisy, after all, they are where this great series started. I love getting peeks into their lives with these novellas. I'm hoping there will be at least one more after Last Kiss (Hitman #3) because lets face it these two need some real closure to their Happily Ever After. Maybe even some little hitpersons. ;)

In Last Hit: Reloaded, we get to see Nick and Daisy settling into lives as college students and landlords of their apartment complex (well sorta...since Nick won't rent out to anyone yet). They both have come a long way and being together has opened them up in ways neither would have ever imagined in with their pasts; but when it comes to fitting in they still have so much to learn. Because of Nick's past and recent events, fitting in and making friends may not be all its cracked up to be.

Darkness comes in all forms and while two mysteries begin to unfold and threaten the life Nick and Daisy have begun to build for themselves, they must once again come together and face it head on. Letting new people in can be both beneficial and toxic.

This novella felt a little open ended. I have a few questions I'm hoping Last Kiss and any novella (wishful thinking) that might come after will tie up. You definitely won't be disappointed with Nick's devotion to his life with Daisy and her love and faith him him. They make an interesting and perfect pair. They really do balance each other.

I can't wait for Last Kiss and I certainly hope we'll be getting more Daniel/Regan because I need to know the 411 on them.

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.
