About three-fourths of the way in, the story felt a little drawn out but only because Nick and Daisy are separated and their scenes together were where the true magic was. I loved the way Daniel coerced Nick into letting him somewhat, kind of, a little bit, become his friend. I actually hate that this story ended! I wanted more!

But I can see her bedroom and her living room and beyond that, with my scope, her kitchen. I know her schedule. When she gets up in the morning, when she returns to her apartment. If she were a mark, I could've killed her a dozen times over by now and been in the wind. She throws her bag onto her bed and then lies down next to it. It takes many muscles to smile, much less to frown but only a few to pull the trigger. I peer down the scope and place my crosshairs over her forehead. Puff, dead. View all 17 comments.

Love rated it it was amazing. Second, you will remove your hand from my shirt. It's attached to the body that belongs to the owner of the purse. If you times them by it still wouldn't be enough. It's very obvious that Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick are an amazing writing team who can pump out insanely amazing books. I can't wait for book two. They are going on my stalk list so I can get book two the second it is released. Nick or Nikolai is a hit man and while tracking his next hit he finds Daisy, she lives in the building next to him and he finds himself watching her more and more, till one day he see's a man touching her laundry.
While stopping him Nick comes face to face with Daisy. Daisy had a loving family till her mother was killed, then her life turned upside down her father became scared of everything and soon their home became her prison. With no other choice Daisy leaves and starts a new life never thinking that she would find anyone like Nick. When they meet neither can deny the attraction and with Daisy's clothes "accidentally" ruined by Nicolai, Nick convinces her to go shopping with him. And so starts Nick and Daisy's relationship soon Nick and Daisy are falling in love and discovering all life has to offer.
But Nick hasn't given up his profession so he finds himself keeping more and more from Daisy. With his mentors death he soon finds himself the target and it will be a race against time to not only kill those guilty but keeping Daisy safe. Where to start with all the things I loved about this book, I guess it would be easier to tell you what I didn't like But the very best, wonderful awesome thing about this book would be He may be the most possessive, crazy, stalker, in lover hero I have ever read about ever in my whole entire life. No joke he was insane, I love him and wish that I could take him home.
Daisy WAS IT for him no one else would do and all he wanted to do was make her happy and safe she deserved nothing but the very best in his eyes. Nick wasn't even ok with men being by her or looking at her, and when he thought he may loose her his plan was to wreak pain and death in his wake did I mention I loved Nick seriously there was not a thing that I didn't love about him.
Daisy was a great heroine she was strong and determined to find happiness. The flow of the story was perfect, I never felt like the story was dragged out or that useless filler was added. I was riveted to this book and never wanted to put it down. This amazing writing duo work brilliantly together and did an incredible job writing not only Daisy's point of view but Nikolai, I believed Nick's point of view completely it felt like he was real and that he was really telling his story, it was stunning.
I never wanted this book to end. We get a great introduction into the characters of book two, as I was reading I hoped that they would get their own book and was so happy when I saw that they would be next. I hope this series continues for a long time, and that the series just gets better though I'm not even sure if that's humanly possible. This is a must read.

Re-read via Audible. Actually increased my rating. I love this story and I love both Nick and Daisy. She was so brave. I am certain that they would not be together if not for her bravery and honesty throughout the story. The fact that they are both so naive and innocent of societal norms is appealing and refreshing, at times hilarious. Nick is so strong, possessive and protective and yet terribly insecure. It is a wonderful combination!
Even when his pa Re-read via Audible. Even when his past catches up to her. The audio version was enjoyable. It had both male and female narrators, which in really liked. Safety gang spoiler view spoiler [ There is a scene when Nick hires a call girl to come give him a blow job. He feels that all is lost with Daisy very early on. This is because neither knows how to communicate or behave normally. He does not go through with it and the woman does not touch him any more than his thighs before he tells her to leave.
Although I would usually frown upon this, for some reason this does not really bother me. Nick truly believes she is lost to him and he needs relief from his guilt and lust. He is not normal. Does not have the slightest clue what is normal so this is not the same as someone else doing the same thing. The fact that nothing happens certainly also helps. It is forgotten as soon as it is over and Daisy never knows. Nor did I feel she needed to. Rated just below 5 stars because it was a little slow at times.

But it was a great read! I loved both Nick and Daisy and want all the best for them. I cannot wait to read Daniel and Regan's story! I've placed one of the four rented chairs in here for that express purpose. I tell myself it is not creepy as the american girls would say, because I watch everyone.
But really I only watch her" There is something wrong with me. And not in a reasonable way! Oh no, in a hysterical Belieber fan way and if anyone says anything wrong about my Nikolai, I will post a hysterical screaming video of myself on youtube where I yell at you "I watch her through my bathroom window. Oh no, in a hysterical Belieber fan way and if anyone says anything wrong about my Nikolai, I will post a hysterical screaming video of myself on youtube where I yell at you all to leave him alone!
And now that is out of the way and you have all backed off and no one is even reading this any more: I loved this book! Nikolai I thought was adorable, seriously, the Russian Hitman, yes, he is so adorable, I just wanted to smoosh his little cheeks and eat him up It was romantic, often humorous Nick has seriously no clue about dating and women with a bit of drama and action. It is a quite often sweet story of two dysfunctional people with abnormal childhoods finding each other.
With guns. And the Russian Mafia! It was in a word - Awesome! View all 8 comments. Dec 08, Jen rated it really liked it Shelves: new-adult-dark-contemporary , contemporary-romance , dark-reads , december-reads , kindle-own. This is a book that I read back in December; but I wasn't able to do a proper review as my Grandson was born! I had to come back though and just post a little something, as this was a book that stuck with me for awhile after I read it.
I read so much that not every book lingers in my mind, but for some reason this one stayed and I am very eager to see more from this author. This is a story about Daisy and Nikolai, they are like night and day in most ways; and yet in others they are quite similar. He is a hitman, and has been from an extremely young age. All Nikolai knows is killing, he has very minimal social skills, and because of it he comes across as naive and innocent. I know that sounds like a stretch when I talk about someone who has killed since he was a child; but surprisingly his lack of knowledge about certain life skills soften his whole personality up.
It made it so I could easily over look the fact that he was a murderer. Then we have Daisy.. Here is a girl who up until she ran away at 21; lived with her father who suffered from agraphobia and was never a part of society. Her father had extreme mental illness, and he couldn't leave the house; which in turn made it so Daisy was trapped at home as well throughout her whole childhood. When Daisy finally does leave him, she is so unprepared for the "real" world. She brings innocence to a whole other level; but she is willing to try and fit in as best as she can.
When Nikolai and Daisy's paths cross, I loved every minute of their time together. There was such a sweetness to every encounter they had with one another, that I just sucked it all in.
The Last Hit
Eventually they do have sex, and some of the scenes are very hot; but I have to say that I just enjoyed them as a couple. They both are flying blind in the relationship area; but somehow they strive to make it work. Nikolai did start off stalking her, but in a weird way it just didn't creep me out!! All in all, this was a story that I adored. It is also one that I will never forget. Sometimes the simplest, sweetest stories are the ones that touch me the most; and in this case this is one of the books.
I am really hoping that the author will continue with this series; and I am literally waiting for what she has in store for us next. I still from time to time stop and think I should check to see if she has put out the second one yet! I can't wait for what Ms. Clare has in store for the reading world next; but she has a fan in me!!

There is so much potential in it but the execution of the story didn't grabbed my attention. I put it down several times and considered not finishing it. I skimmed pages because it was excruciatingly boring and wordy. Categorized as romantic suspense, I expect it to be action packed and fast paced. The kind that will give you an adrenalin rush. To my disappointment, it wasn't thrilling. Since the hero was an independent contract killer and he has an unfinished business with his former Bratva.
I guess the main problem of this book was focusing more on romance than the suspense aspect. I want more history about the Bratva.
Last hit - Wikipedia
Daisy Miller was sheltered throughout her life since her mother was murdred. Her father was traumatized by the incident and feared for his life and daughter. Suffocated by his overprotective daughter, she left home. She was naive, immature and at times stupid. She's prone to danger by easily trusting Nikolai. She never realize he's stalking her. He wasn't even badass. It was insta-lust for them. I would be more invested if they have more dialogue just to build up their romance and steam.
Will I continue the series? It depends on my mood. Overall, this book was disappointing. View all 7 comments. Jan 14, Wendy'sThoughts rated it really liked it. Both are oddly perfect for each other and end up finding their truth together during a kidnapping, revenge killings and ultimately love. Took a bit to understand how this was to come together First part of the series with this ending well yet open for more to come.

I liked this one, not as much as I thought I would but liked it enough to recommend it and let others decide what they think. The second half was definitely more action-packed than the first half. It made the book for me. The first half I now refer to as the 'calm before the storm' when the danger lurked far away. Daisy Miller is a 21 year old woman that finally escapes from her hermit existence with her reclusive father.
When she was younger a tragic accident happened and Daisy's father boarded them up for safety. But that initial vigilance soon turned into an obsession leaving Daisy home schooled, exempt from having friends, driving or participating in life in general. She was responsible for all the shopping and maintenance so she did have contact with the outside world.
But her father controlled what she read and watched. The computer was under lock and key Daisy would sqeeze stolen time in the library after her shopping trips and it is there that she felt alive. When she finally escapes her father's grasp, she heads for Minneapolis. There she trys to build a life all her own. Nikolai is a hitman for the Russian Bratva mob , he's biding his days watching a mark that happens to live in the same building Daisy shares with her roommate, Regan. He is facinated by Daisy and eventually meets her. And they're both changed forever. So, the first half was the get-to-know-you period.
It was sweet to see how much Nick cared for her. He was for the first time in his life, bewitched. Daisy was his sunshine in an otherwise dark existence. They spend a lot of time together but Nick withholds who he really is. There were some steamy moments here as well! Until the Russians come!
Daisy and Regan are taken by the Bratva and this is where the book really takes off. I loved the second half! It was fast-paced and action-filled. I also loved Nikolai here, when Daisy finds out about his true profession. He is no longer Nick but the infamous hitman Nikolai. Daisy was such a great heroine in this part of the book. She was shocked and disappointed to realize how Nick lied to her, but she shows some maturity and strength with how she deals with everything. I loved the ending, it was sweet and perfect.
Nikolai was a wonderful man beneath all the hideousness he was raised to be. There's a part that involves Daisy's father and the past that haunts him that made my heart melt. Nick proves to be the avenging angel and I loved it. This is the first in a series, and we can't forget about Regan. She was taken with Daisy so the second book is about her and Daniel, one of the Russian Bratva that helped Nick.
Let's just say I expect that one to be darker than this, and I can't wait!

Get A Copy
Daisy is everything Nikolai is not. I think I love how ruthless they can be. Nikolai grew up in Russia. From an early age he has trained to be cold and heartless. He works on his own, making money, sleeping with women and just living an okay life. Daisy is a sad case. As much as I love a strong Heroine, I love a damsel! I love the silly naive girl! The beginning gets me hooked.
The interaction between Nikolai and Daisy is very fast emotionally. Nikolai of course pampers and tries to protect Daisy. Daisy does try to be strong and independent, but it kind of falls flat. I loved the plot and storyline to Last Hit, but I did have some issues with the flow.
I wished Daisy and Nikolai had a slower relationship and really build up that sexual frustration that I crave in a read. Shelves: jealous-possessive , There is just something exciting about a man that is pretty much cold and unemotional who meets the one woman who makes him feel. Nikolai is a hitman. He was brought in by the Bratva and trained at a very young age to become a killer. The first time he hinted at wanting affection at the age of 9, the Bratva made him kill the mother figure he gravitated too.
The second time he showed emotion by letting abused boys take their revenge on the mark he was sent to kill, the Bratva kicks him 4. The second time he showed emotion by letting abused boys take their revenge on the mark he was sent to kill, the Bratva kicks him out. He was only 15 at the time. Being left with only the one thing he knows how to do, he becomes a hitman. Not only did the author do the Hero in this story right, but she also put a spin on the virgin heroine where it made sense that we have a 21 year old woman who is so naive and innocent.
Her story alone was just as interesting as Nikolai's. Daisy's mother was killed in a robbery gone bad by a young kid drugged up on Meth. Her father reacts in such an extreme way that he basically imprisons Daisy at a young age. His fear of the thug has turned into an illness that has made her suffer and want to break from his hold and runaway. This is where Daisy and Nikolai end up meeting. She answers an ad for a roommate in an apartment that is across the hall from Nikolai's current mark.
He notices her in his stakeout and is immediately drawn to her. He becomes obsessed to a point that he stalks her. He does things that would make some woman run screaming in the other direction. The way the author has you fall for Nikolai and feel sorry for him, wanting him to get that affection he desperately needed all along was brilliant. He was so lost just trying to do basic things as a man courting a woman, it was endearing. His need to keep her safe and protect her showed how a bad man could be good.
It showed how sometimes doing the right thing isn't always best. You would think Nikolai would be the last person Daisy needs after her ordeal with her father, but he ends up being the best thing that could have happened to her. In the end, he made her stronger and in control of her own life while protecting her and she gave him love. The journey to this end was fascinating. Nov 20, Julia's Book Haven rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites , contemporary-romance , own-paperback. I don't even know how to properly express how much I enjoyed this book.
I want to marry Nick, his is just a big marshmallow wrapped in a killer skin lol. God I just adored him. And even though Daisy was pretty innocent and a little naive, she wasn't annoying like a lot of heroine's can be. I liked her, and I especially liked how she handled finding out about Nick's line of work. She didn't freak out and make an awful scene, which I liked.
She gave his lifestyle time to sink in before she went and said horrible things that she would later regret. Is that a spoiler? Maybe, not really though right? Oh well lol. This book is definitely on my favourite list, and I'm looking forward to the next book. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Villeneuve Distributed by High Filers Release date.
