Last Hit: Reloaded
By: Jessica Clare
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.My Thoughts
A continuation from the Hitman series featuring Nick and Daisy, Last Hit: Reloaded focuses on their lives after. After the murder and mayhem, while they are just trying to live their lives and continue. Yet, Nick isn’t able to leave his past behind and is continuously on the lookout for trouble. Daisy is trying to live a comfortable quiet life, but is having issues with making friends and fitting in at college.
A short scene in the life of Nick and Daisy, I enjoyed entering their world again. I have a soft spot for Nick and the journey he has endured. A former hitman, Nick is hard but Daisy gives him just enough soft to make him a true hero. Never backing down and extremely loyal, Nick is a tried and true killer who tries to hide his true nature to be more of what Daisy wants and needs. Through it all, Nick and Daisy still have a strong connection, no matter what happens.
An excellent addition to the series, with a few new characters added, I fell back into the world of the Hitman series with no problems. I’m looking forward to Last Kiss and returning to Russia. Without a doubt I feel that you need to read the previous books in the series, both for continuity and to enjoy the book and really know the past motivations of the characters.
