In the explosive new Hitman novel from the bestselling authors of Last Kiss and Last Hit a jungle mercenary and a female target find love on the run...
Mendoza: I grew up in the slums and lost everything I loved to poverty, illness, and death. I had only one skill to leverage myself out of my circumstances—violence. Being hired out as a mercenary hitman brought me money and built an empire. But all that I've fought for is in jeopardy. My next job: Steal secret information that could bring down world governments. Find my target. Destroy it. But then, I meet her.
Ava: Karma hates me. When my best friend Rose is kidnapped, I have no choice but to take a job as a mule for a pair of criminals intent on selling top-secret information to the highest bidder. I should have known that bad luck tends to cling, because the plane I'm on goes down. That I survived a crash-landing was a miracle. And so was being rescued by Rafe Mendoza—hot, sexy, dangerous. The thing is, he wants the information that I need to free Rose. I can't let him have it, but I need his help. And I need to fight this crazy attraction for this mercenary with hungry eyes. Rose is depending on me, and I won't let her down, no matter how appealing Rafe is.
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Only Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick could write a story where a hand model falls in love with a mercenary in the Amazon rainforest and not only make it work but have their readers begging for more. In this latest release of the Hitman series, Rafe and Ava are both trying to save someone they care about. However, they must first survive and escape the danger that surrounds them. Rafe was such an interesting character. He is willing to do just about anything to save and protect Ava. Yet at the same time, he believes he is cursed with the ability to only hurt women. He usually stays as far away from them as possible. But he cannot deny the longing and want he feels for Ava. It was interesting to read a story where the hero is the one with body issues and it's the heroine who is determined to break through and change the misconceptions. Ava sets out to destroy the insecurities that plague him. As a result, Rafe grows more confident. He starts to believe that maybe he doesn't have to live such a lonely life and can actually keep the woman he craves. Though there were some heartbreaking moments in this books, there were just as many equally beautiful, tender, and passionate moments. I'm eagerly looking forward to the next one in the series.
