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.
Texty Teasers ;-)
Last Hit: Reloaded is a novella in the Hitman Series following the lives of Daisy and Nick. To enjoy this story, Last Hit, the full novel, is required to be read first.
Although Daisy’s character has changed from the first story until now, she has retained some of her innocence and I liked that. Both her and Nick are socially inept yet they share a deep love for each other and their relationship is pure in the sense that they put each other first. They are honest and don’t play games with the other.
“Nick and I don’t watch a lot of TV. There are so many other things to do with our time, like fix up the old apartment building, or go to the zoo, or take walks together… or simply make love. TV falls somewhere far down that list.”
Daisy is innocent in some respects, yet she is tougher in others. Her time under her father’s thumb and meeting Nick has changed her, for the better. She knows what is important to her, she is secure in the fact Nick is always looking out for her and will protect her at all costs, and this is something she returns.
“Nick pulls me in close and his mouth brushes over mine, and his touch never fails to send a shiver down my spine. I love this man. I would kill for him. I have killed for him.”
Nick once again proves Daisy is his everything. For me, it got a bit repetitive. I understood he would go to any length for Daisy, but at the same time I was thinking ‘enough already’. I found myself skipping some of the sex scenes. There are only so many ways Nick can fuse himself to Daisy, shy of super gluing her to himself, I’m not sure how else he can prove he needs her to breathe. Perhaps I wasn’t in the right frame of mind when I was reading this novella, but Daisy and Nick’s need for each other just got a little too much for me. I did like the reverence in which Nick held Daisy; I just thought in this case less is more.
With that being said, it was good to see Daisy and Nick try to widen their social circle. For characters that have lived a life of solitude, they need the interaction friends can bring. Even though they might not have been successful this time around, at least they realised how fortunate they were.
“You are different,” I admit. “So am I. We will never be the carefree youths we see about the campus. The dark hand of loss and suffering have shaped us into creatures who cannot be ordinary, as much as you may long for that. However, your irrepressible joy in life feeds me in a way that bread and water cannot. And Regan too responded to you in a like manner. I think these girls need only to know you better. To know you is to love you.”
Last Hit: Reloaded will be a hit for diehard fans of Daisy and Nick. Admittedly I was after more from their storyline, I was expecting something to drive the series forward but instead we got a small look into Daisy and Nick trying to adjust in their new lives. Don’t get me wrong, it was sweet and both Daisy and Nick share a deep love for each other, I was just after something a little different.
If you are a fan of the series so far then check this out for yourself. Now I’m left eagerly awaiting Last Kiss!

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.
