Regan I never really knew what misery was until the day I was kidnapped and sold for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Two months later, I'm at a brothel in Rio when I meet Daniel Hays. He says he's here to save me, but can I trust him? All I know of him are his sarcastic retorts and his tendency to solve every dispute with his gun. He's also the only safe thing in my world, and I know it's wrong to fall in love with him, but I can't seem to help myself. He says he’ll protect me until his last breath but I don’t know if I should believe him or even if I can.
For the last eighteen months, I’ve had one goal: to find my kidnapped sister. I’ve left the Army, turned paid hit man, and have befriended criminals all across the globe. In every brothel I raid or every human trafficking truck I stop, her face is the one I’m desperate to see. In Rio, I find Regan Porter, bruised but not broken and still sane despite her weeks in hell. I should leave her behind or send her home because the last thing either of us needs is to get involved. But with every passing minute, I find I can’t let her go
I really like this series. Last Breath is part of the Hitman series and can be read as a standalone.
It’s Regan and Daniel’s story, yay! I really wanted to read Regan’s story. I’ll just say it, I love a damsel!
In Last Hit, we know Regan is kidnapped and sold into prostitution ring. Daisy asks Nikolai to help find Regan. Nikolai asks his friend Daniel to help.
Daniel is on a mission, to find his sister. His sister was kidnapped and he thinks she is sold into a prostitution ring. He’s already on the hunt for his sister and so when Nikolai requests Daniel to find Regan, Daniel obliges.
The book starts out with a bang. Regan has been in the brothel for some weeks now and you get some insights to what she has been dealing with. It’s not gritty, so don’t worry.
Regan knows she is nothing more than a piece of meat, but they haven’t broken her.
Daniel is in Rio looking for Regan. When he finds Regan he is a taken by her beauty, but he has no time for distractions. He’s needs to get Regan, bring her to the embassy and keep looking for his sister. Regan isn’t making it easy on Daniel.
Daniel finds Regan pretty early in the book and I like that. There isn’t any filler writing and we get to the meat of the story. Despite Regan’s situation, she still has a lot of fire and she isn’t going to go down easy. She’s cautious of Daniel and doesn’t know why he wants to buy her. She has been through so much, she doesn’t know if she wants to go with him.
I get Regan. Even though Daniel is good looking, it’s kind of scary being sold to another person who could treat you like crap. I like the banter between Regan and Daniel. Regan doesn’t trust Daniel and Daniel must pretend he wants to purchase Regan for a night, so he treats her like a lowly prostitute.
I also enjoyed reading the subplot. You get to know Daniel and understand why he does what he does. I also like the side characters, which I am assuming will be in the next book. YAY!
If you were a fan of Last Hit, you will not be disappointed with Last Breath.
