Overview

With their explosively sexy novels, the bestselling authors of Last Breath, Last Kiss, and Last Hit have proven themselves “a force to be reckoned with.”* Now comes an all-new to-die-for novella in their acclaimed Hitman series…
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.

Includes a bonus excerpt from Last Kiss.

Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick bring readers a new novella in the Hitman series. If readers were wondering how on earth Nick and Daisy would make it in the real world after their happy-ever-after, this is that story. With the same intense characters, a lot of hot love scenes and just enough mystery and suspense to bring it all together, Last Hit: Reloaded is a definitely a hit! The Hitman series is one that seems to produce some strong feelings in readers for one reason or another. Personally, I liked it a lot because of the intensity of the characters that Clare and Frederick have created. Readers first met both Nick and Daisy in Last Hit where they ended up together despite the odds stacked against them. Nick was a former assassin and Daisy had led such a sheltered life that their normal was anything but. I loved the powerful connection between them and was so happy to see that the authors decided to continue their story in Last Hit: Reloaded. The story picks up with Nick and Daisy now living in America. They have begun their new life together but fitting into a normal everyday existence is proving a little harder than they imagined. Nick has to learn to channel is assassin urges and his deep need to protect Daisy, while Daisy struggles to fit in with her new classmates and longs to make new friends. It was interesting to see these characters in such an unfamiliar environment. I loved seeing Nick start to interact with people in the real world and the way he was able to see a different side to life. Daisy, however had in me in agony. I hurt for her as she tried to find a way to fit in. I wanted to reach out and grab some of her coeds and shake them for not understanding her awkwardness and shyness. When she did make a friend, Nick got worried and he had good reason. A lot of things happened in this short novella and good deal of it was sexually related. These two might be intense outside the bedroom, but inside it, they were simply explosive. Together they could tackle anything and their love for each other was present throughout the book but their sexual connection was just as important to the story. I liked the fact that Clare and Fredrick understood that a guy like Nick could not possibly be vanilla in the bedroom. He rocked every scene and readers will not be disappointed. Bottom Line: If you liked any of the Hitman books, you won't want to miss this InterMix novella. A topnotch addition to the series, with the same intensity and mind blowing suspense that will keep readers coming back again and again. Clare and Frederick mesh well together giving readers a cohesive and smoothly flowing story, with powerful love scenes and a mystery that will keep you guessing, as well as, a great after, the happily-ever-after story.

Who knew russian assassins were so HOT? I LOVED Nick & Daisy. These days with the romance market seemingly over run with sparkly vampires and such, it was refreshing to read about a russian hitman and his love. I really couldnt put it down. If you dont like to read sex though, then it may have too much for you. There is plenty of it and its SMOKING HOT! ARC for an objective review.

I love Nick and Daisy. For that they are a 5.. But there is no threat from the shadows, no real story and for that i had to give this a 3. I feel like this story was unfinished. Could have been a great story line with the cop. Christine was boring and a disappointment. Where the Last Hit was a 10 this felt thrown together.

Last Hit was the first book I read by Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare and I absolutely loved it.  It was fast paced, fascinating, dark, hot, and so many other good things all wrapped into one book.  I loved seeing Nikolai and Daisy in the next book in the series, but it wasn't the long exposure I would've liked so this novella put me right where I wanted to be, back in their world.  This maybe a novella, but it has the feeling of a novel. The story starts with Nikolai and Daisy settled and trying to live civilian lives.  You'd think it'd be a mundane thing, but it's not.  They've both been through so much and with their unconventional bringing up, they're finding it easy to cleave to one another but hard to fit in.  Plus with Nikolai, rather Nick's expertise, he's still always on the lookout to make sure his woman is safe.   I really liked seeing them trying to assimilate.  It was hard sometimes because their hearts were in the right places but it didn't seem like they were getting the results they wanted.  I loved how Daisy encouraged Nick to follow what he was talented at, when he doubted himself.  And for everyone who thinks this book will be boring, let me reassure you, there's plenty of action. Much of it made me cringe.  Daisy has an amazing heart, but she needs to pick her "friends" better.  I loved seeing Nick handle Daisy's need for freedom and balance his need for constant surveillance.  I also loved getting a glimpse of Daniel and Reagan.  I look forward to seeing more of them in the future.  I was also unaware there is going to be a third book in the series, but now that I know, I'm super excited to read about Naomi and Vasily!

Overall Rating:  4.5 Rockin’ Stars True love will overcome all boundaries and find a way…it will not be denied! This is a remarkable novella by an incredible team of writers, Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare.  It begins after the end of the second book in the Hitman series and is a continuation of Nick and Daisy’s story.  In this novella the reader will get a look at the life they have made together in American.  The path that the two lovers embark on is not an easy journey, especially when they are trying to find normal where normal is abnormal in both their previous lives.     We are drawn into Nick and Daisy’s new life.  They are trying to establish a new life, a new identity and a new norm together. Nick’s love for Daisy is without reservations or restrictions.  She owns him body and soul and he would do anything to protect her.  He knows that something is bothering her and needs to find out what it is so that he can take care of the problem.  Daisy loves Nick and is willing to sacrifice anything for him.  She just doesn’t understand why everyone is keeping her at arm’s length at school.  Could it be that they are afraid of Nick?  Once upon a time she had been frightened by him. How can she help him with his new start in becoming an American if his past is always just around the corner?  Will they be able to put the past behind and live their HEA? Sometimes the past refuses to release those that try to flee, especially when that past is out for revenge no matter the cost! Daisy and Nick will need to depend on each other and Nick’s skills to survive what is coming after them.    Hero: Nick 4.5 stars Heroine: Daisy 4.5 stars Plot: 4.5 stars Steam Level: 4.5 stars Cliffhanger:  No Would I recommend this book: Yes! Reformed bad boy protects and cares for his sexy innocent one and only in this hot read about their life together and their HEA.  Would I recommend this author: Yes! Two heads are definitely better than one and this amazing series proves that point! The collaboration by these two amazing authors is evident in the product they produce for their readers. Their characters are well developed and defined while the story’s many twist keep you actively involved.  The Hit Man Series is a must read! ***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***

      A continuation from the Hitman series featuring Nick and Daisy, Last Hit: Reloaded focuses on their lives after. After the murder and mayhem, while they are just trying to live their lives and continue. Yet, Nick isn’t able to leave his past behind and is continuously on the lookout for trouble. Daisy is trying to live a comfortable quiet life, but is having issues with making friends and fitting in at college.       A short scene in the life of Nick and Daisy, I enjoyed entering their world again. I have a soft spot for Nick and the journey he has endured. A former hitman, Nick is hard but Daisy gives him just enough soft to make him a true hero. Never backing down and extremely loyal, Nick is a tried and true killer who tries to hide his true nature to be more of what Daisy wants and needs. Through it all, Nick and Daisy still have a strong connection, no matter what happens.       An excellent addition to the series, with a few new characters added, I fell back into the world of the Hitman series with no problems. I’m looking forward to Last Kiss and returning to Russia. Without a doubt I feel that you need to read the previous books in the series, both for continuity and to enjoy the book and really know the past motivations of the characters.

This is the next installment of the Hitman series that Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare are writing together where we go back to Nick and Daisy as they try to handle normal college life in a way that neither of them have really had to deal with before. Of course, things can't always be 'normal' with one of this duo's hit series.   Things get tense and Nick gets more protective of his Daisy.    Can the hitman in Nick stay hidden in the crowd on a regular college campus?   A new danger comes forward and well as a new ally? The chemistry between the two is as spicy as ever and you won't regret picking up this novella. I received this as an ARC for an unbiased review.

4 - The small details are often the most important. Stars! Last Hit: Reloaded takes us back to Daisy and Nick, and gives us a continuation of their story (you definitely need to read Last Hit, to appreciate this novella fully). Trying to live a normal everyday life doesn’t come without its struggles for both of them, Daisy having lead and isolated existence, and Nick having lived an insular solitary life prior, both of them struggle to integrate comfortably into college life, and the normal routines of day-to-day living in general. People who are afraid have fearful things at home. It was really enjoyable to catch up with them both, and although this is a novella Jen and Jessica have managed to pack a generous amount of storyline into it. As you would expect the life they are trying to live together is a massive adjustment for them both, and I found it both heart-breaking and heart-warming at times. Reading of the lengths Nick is prepared to go to, to make Daisy happy as well as keep her safe without stifling her, and equally the measures Daisy was prepared to take to keep Nick from going back to his old ways in order to protect her the way he is naturally inclined to do. The sexy times are hot, the suspense interesting and route the story takes is not as you initially expect. The door is definitely left open for this couple, as well as the secondary characters, and I really hope that we have an opportunity to see more of them all in future books. Last Kiss is due in May, Vasily and Naomi’s story is one I have been waiting impatiently for since Last Breath. I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED! My thanks as always to the marvelous Jen Frederick for providing me with an ARC; it was an absolute pleasure to provide the above honest review in exchange.

Last Hit: Reloaded is a novella at only 134 pages, I read it in one sitting, but it feels like more than that. The book feels like more than just a quick check in with our hero and heroine. It feels complete. Once again we get Nick's point of view every other chapter while reading and I really think that just helps make the book. I love all things Nick, but I really love the way he thinks things through. Everything is so simple in Nick's mind, people are just going to do what he wants, it's that easy. Nick is still being a little melodramatic but it wouldn't be Nick without it and I don't think I would love it as much. And Daisy, we can't forget Daisy, that girl is crazy. In the best kind of way. She's just the sweetest person you've ever met... until she starts talking about suffocating her friend from college. Daisy is like an Autobot, she's more than meets the eye. And this is where my notes took a dangerous turn at 2:30am. Sometimes I get a bit delusional that late/early so I just go to bed. Crazy notes aside, I just loved this book, I can't really tell you what it is about because I worry I wouldn't be able to stop myself and then I'll tell you all the good stuff. While this is definitely a novella because the page numbers are lower, it felt complete to me. This wasn't just a check in to see how Nick and Daisy are doing, but it helped to move along their relationship. I'm excited to read book 3, Last Kiss, later this year, but I'm also hoping that we'll get additional books with Nick and Daisy in the future. The ending of this book gave me some hope that we will be getting more from them, and maybe even a bit about a dirty cop. Oh and something I forgot to mention, Last Hit: Reloaded is another hot read. There are quite a few scenes for such a short book, but it never feels like it is too much. Sometimes, especially in short books if can feel like overload, but I didn't fell that way while reading. It was a nice mix. If you can't tell I loved Last Hit: Reloaded. I love this whole series. If you haven't met one of my favorite (retired) hit men then you need to start with Last Hit, but just get to reading.

Nick and Daisy are sort of living in a bubble, a slice of their own world. Both aren’t really up on “current” pastimes or lifestyles but their world works for them. Without giving any spoilers, the best part of this book for me was how Nick starts to relate to “real” people. It will touch your heart. It should be said that this book has LOTS of sex. Really. You’ve been warned, in a good way. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

If you liked Last Hit, you'll love catching up with Nick and Daisy. This steamy short story details what happens next, from trying to blend in at university classes and making friends, to accidentally getting involved with more murderous events. It is a must read for Last Hit fans.
