I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. The stars on my knees, the marks on my fingers, the dagger in my neck, all bespoke of danger. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you’d have. I have ever been the hunter, never the prey. With her, I am the mark and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her, I will bring the world down around their ears.
I’ve been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Homeschooled and farm-raised, I’m so naive that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best in people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he’s terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him, but because he’s the only man that has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him, my heart is at risk..and also, my life.
The synopsis.....I was all in after reading that! Hit-man falling for innocent sheltered girl? Sign me up for that! I really enjoyed this story....although parts were a tad unbelievable, it's fantasy so it didn't bother me too much. 4 stars.
"I’ll never be good for Daisy but I ache and I am … lonely."
Daisy has lived an extremely sheltered life. Her mother was murdered when she was little, and now her Dad suffers from agoraphobia and fears for his safety and the safety of Daisy. She is home-schooled and not allowed out but to get basic supplies and Daisy is suffocating, she just can't do it anymore. So over the years she saves a small amount of money and she runs, finally gaining her independence and experiencing the world for the first time.
Nikolai "Nick" knows no other life than being a hit-man. He knows nothing about love or trust.....that is until he meets Daisy. He is intrigued when he sees her and watches her. When they meet they are instantly drawn to each other and they can't deny the chemistry they share. Nikolai makes Daisy feel things she has never felt, and Daisy makes Nickolai want to be a better person and live a different life. Nick has one last hit to make, can he complete this job and keep Daisy safe? What happens when Daisy finds out who Nick really is......will they get to live the life they are both longing for and experience true happiness?
"There is a darkness in her, and it makes her all the more appealing. If there is darkness inside her, perhaps she will understand the darkness inside me."
I really enjoyed this book and Nick and Daisy's relationship. The Last Hit was sexy, mysterious, and suspenseful. I loved reading about the sexy bad guy who finds a girl that makes him want to do right. Can't wait for Daniel and Regan's story.

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.
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.
