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.

TEASERS (Use as many as you like)
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.

For Fun (if needed)

Preorder via iBooks, B&N and Kobo. (Amazon live on release day) 

  Drawn to fight small


New Adult romance, for 18+ only due to sexual content and adult themes

Drawn to Fight begins a new series in the world of the Drawn Series, following Redemption and featuring, Damien and Etta's daughter, Evie, in her own coming of age drama filled with angst, love, passion, need, and a healthy dose of obsession.

Zac Rivers. A boy no one wanted to know. Always angry. Always fighting his way in and out of trouble. It was no surprise when he was expelled from school and never heard from again. Until now. I found him at the Londonderry Brawl, and I watched him fight like an animal. Strong. Controlled. But desperate. I sensed in him a purpose – a need to win – and I wanted to know what was so important to him. The way he fought was mesmerising, and I couldn't take my eyes off him. Then, it was over, he'd won and I needed to leave. 

He didn't want me to. 

When his lips met mine, somehow, he stole my heart, and in that moment, I knew my world was forever changed. I needed to know this boy. I needed to discover all there was to know about him or I'd never be able to breathe again. No one thinks we should be together. They say his bad news.

Well, people say I'm bad news too. 

Then, as fate would have it, I was forced to introduce him to my most fierce protector. A man whose past is riddled with secrets and mistakes; a man who fought his way from the darkness and into the light; a man called Damien – my father. 

  My name is Yvonne Rhodes, although, you may prefer to call me Evie. I'm the eldest daughter of Damien and Henrietta Rhodes. Inside me, I have my mother’s sense, and my father’s passion.

  This is Zac's and my story. It's about needing someone to the point of obsession. It's about losing control, and finding a way to pick up the pieces when everything seems broken. And it's about love. One that's so strong, nothing can stop it.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"Tears are for the weak."

Then I proudly admit I am weak as I read this book with the shine of unshed tears from start to finish. Head the warnings as this is not a story filled with kittens and lollipops but rather a survivors retelling of horrific abuse sexually, mentally and physically.

Found in a house surrounded by 11 dead Dragons, the only one still alive, Tori is an enigma to the FBI. Is she the perpetrator, a victim or a mixture of the two? They have big plans for her...they try to manipulate her into revealing everything she knows about The Organisation. Yet all it takes is a fragile bond of trust between her and Eli to loosen her lips...

Eli is kind of her strength, she latched on to him like he is her lifeline in this strange new world she has awoken in. Eli sees her, past the scars and the ugly that has been her life. He is drawn to her and she reciprocates by retelling the tragedy of her life.

Tori was raised by a biker gang, 12 men tutored her in the different aspects of survival, then taught her she was nothing but a warm hole to satisfy their brutal needs. Fighting resulted in scars and pain so Tori battled internally, finding coping mechanisms to survive, to win. Her story is harrowing, the details so smoothly written I felt the heat of the cigarette, the coolness of the lube...the sting of the rope. Tori I fell in love with, she doesn't want pity of sympathy. She tells her story calmly and with acceptance as if the things she was made to do are normal. She doesn't see herself as a victim, her hands are stained in blood too. My heart aches for her and I can't wait to continue her story.

5 gloriously emotive stars.

Raised by bikers and held by the FBI, Tori Farrell has literally walked over dead men to get to where she is today.

When she broke the ties to her dark and twisted life with the Dragons, she thought it would give her a fresh start and a chance to live a normal life. However, she soon discovered the demons from her past have no desire to let her go.

Bound to a halfway house under orders of the FBI, Tori takes things day by day, working to move forward and to face her own addictions. With her true identity a mystery and no family to turn to, she must learn to accept the love and support of those around her. When a mysterious and charismatic man walks into Tori’s life, she believes she’s finally found someone who wants her for who she is. But sometimes danger doesn’t hide cloaked in darkness” it comes out into the light of day in the form of a smooth talking bad boy who appears to be everything you’ve been looking for, but is really the one thing you should be running from.”

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

Picking up where book one ended, Tori is now taking her first steps away from being part of the Dragons. Settled into a new home, a new job with new people to start rebuilding her life. This part of her story deals with the aftermath of suddenly being free, to an extent as not everything is as what is seem, and the ghosts that lurk in her psyche.

Tori has a long road to travel as she realises she uses her body to feel, to then justify her need to obliterate it with alcohol...addiction claws at her and we watch as she struggles to break free. Someone from her past makes her realise her own self loathing nature and after he leaves her due to more noble intentions...she takes brave steps to tackle her issues.

"You must forgive your own sins if you are ever to turn away from them and walk in a new life."

This is an emotive rollercoaster of a read as we watch from the sidelines like eager parents as a newborn takes her first steps...Tori wobbles, she falls but she gets back up. Ending on a cliffhanger...what has fate got in store for her now?

5 nail biting, pensive stars!

Release Date: March 23, 2014


There is nothing crueler than getting a taste of something you’ve fought hard to reach, only to have it ripped away, sending your world into a tailspin.

Tori wants to put the past behind her, but it’s a daunting task when you have the FBI trying to force you back into the life you’ve escaped. When a ghost from her past visits, it could be the leverage they need to do exactly that -- put her back into the game of murder and deceit. Tori has decided to run, in an attempt to protect her new friends, by fleeing from LA.

Wanting a place to call home and feel safe from the madness, she sets out with a plan to disappear and hide in anonymity. Her idea only holds one flaw -- a man she can’t shake, who won’t take 'No' for an answer.

She soon discovers that getting a new life means she must first lay to rest the demons of her past.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~Obsessed by Books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

This installment slows the pace down as Tori runs from Michael and embarks on a journey of discovery and acceptance. He follows her and vows to keep his promise to his beloved brother and to Terry. He said he would look after Tori so he he follows her and sticks by her regardless of her pushing him away. He cautiously re evaluates his opinion of her as he questions his brother's devotion to this hard to reach woman, who he believes is nothing more than an emotionally detached whore. By spending time with her he realises how harshly he judged her. Treating her like a dangerous cornered animal he slowly tried to win her trust,her friendship and in the process loses his heart...

Their shared journey gives Tori time to reflect on her past, her previous relationships as such, and want she truly wants to do next. She blossoms like a delicate flower in the rays of adoration that Michael bathes her her. His tentative approach makes her realise she wants more than her addiction to dirty rough sex and booze to blot out the acts. His friendship enables Tori to let go of some her ghosts, to accept them and embrace her future. They build a life, friends and a home...until events spiral once more out of control...

Another 5 star nail biting read.

Release Date: June 20, 2014


When seduction and danger are all you've ever known can you ever truly leave it behind?

When Tori walked away from a life of crime, she set forth on a path of redemption and discovery. She found a man to call her own, and a life she would give anything to keep. But love and life aren't always beautiful or kind...sometimes they are painful and traitorous.

For years, Tori's drug of choice was alcohol, but through hard work and self-determination she has learned to exist without it. Suddenly faced with her true identity, and the danger of having friends and family destroyed by the world she left behind, she finds herself once again lost in a dark world filled with sex, drugs and murder.

She thought that a life of normalcy is what she wanted most, but when she gets a small taste of the dangerous life she once lived, she is forced to face the facts...not all of the demons are found on the outside.

Review by Nadia Chief Obsessive Pimpette

~*~ Obsessed by books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

Whoa, Eli turns back up and her life is in turmoil...this book continues the story and just as it seems Tori may be about to get her HEA of sorts, the past reads it's ugly head and swallows her up.

Tori faces a dilemma save her family from the threat, become what she was trained for or hide. Tori chooses to do what she does best and sets off to join and eliminate The Scorpions. Donning her persona of a cold, unfeeling murderous whore she embraces who she was trained to be. She hooks up with Enrique and discovers she has missed the thrill of dirty sex, much to her own disgust. Tori launches herself back into drinking and f**king, fighting to survive and prove herself with a new group of mercenaries. The group sex, physical punishment and beatings soon earn her her status and she works her way into the ranks.
Tori plans carefully, fighting not only her darker demons to stop them pulling her back under but her need to end them all as she had The Dragons. Her time with this group provides her with an opportunity to relish the skills she was taught, learn some new ones from an unlikely source and explore herself.

Returning and playing the game on her terms empowers Tori and she emerges less broken. She takes control of her darker urges and uses her sexuality as a weapon to weaken her enemies. Her plans come to fruition and she is triumphant. She learns more of who she is and discovers that there is more to the FBI's hidden agenda.

Masterfully written with the right blend of violence and emotion that kept me hooked. Another 5 star sizzling read.

~*~ Obsessed by Books copy given in exchange for an honest review ~*~

"My future feels uncertain, but it isn't. It's been waiting for me to accept it, and to take my final role."

Ah Baby Girl I was shaking my head in disappointment several times throughout this installment. Don't get me wrong I love Tori, she has emerged relatively whole from her past but we see her selfishness in this story. She causes so much hurt to the ones who love her by playing up to her past and not taking ownership of her actions. The strong Tori of book 3 is lost to a woman who feels torn between nasty sex and love, blaming the ghosts of her past for inner turmoil.

I felt frustrated by her and Michael. I wanted to shake him and hoped he would turn the tables on Tori as I'm sure she wouldn't want to share her husband. Their relationship was never going to be smooth sailing but Tori just seems to enjoy the drama....

As their relationship spirals out of control, more chess pieces are being moved into play. With the FBI and The Organization closing in her book 7 is one I can't wait to read.

4 frustrating stars!
