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.

Together they write the Hitman series which includes Last Kiss, Last Hit: Reloaded, Last Breath, and Last Hit.
I have pretty much liked the Hitman series but this book was being the last book in the series, really wasn't up to the other books.  Maybe it's time to finish the Hitman series. I got extremely tired of Rafe losing it all over Ava.  Yes, she's absolutely beautiful but give it a rest.  It's a bit too much.  Get a grip!  Act your age instead of a teenage puppy in love. Or maybe it was lust??
I believe I had trouble relating to the story because it wasn't realistic.  For me, I need a sense of realism to like a novel. I think the main plot of the story is quite good. Being saved by a Hitman, gives the plot a good start.  It's just there were too many unrealistic events and characters in the story.  It has everything you would want, romance, danger, mystery, suspense and sex.  It just wasn't presented well enough for me. Grab a copy and see what you think.  Everybody gets a different take on things.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the authors and NightOwl Reviews in exchange for my unbiased review. No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
