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.
Daniel: For the last eighteen months, one goal has dictated every action I’ve taken. I’ve left the Army, turned paid hit man, and befriended criminals all across the globe to find my kidnapped sister. In every brothel I raid and every human trafficking truck I stop, I hope the next face I find is my sister’s. In a hidden brothel in Rio, I find Regan Porter, bruised but not broken, and still sane despite her weeks in captivity. I should leave her behind or send her home, because the last thing either of us needs right now is to get involved. But with every passing minute, I find I’m less able to let her go.
This book starts off so incredibly sad. Regan has been sold into human trafficking for the last two months and has almost given up hope, almost. Until an america. Stranger shows up and buys her.she thinks great another man to tattoo me, but is shocked when said man takes her to the American embassy.only Regan is too scared of being sold again and her trust is null and void after everything she has been through, so she begs this american stranger Daniel, to let her stay with him until she is showered and decent. Daniel agrees but after he is with her he realizes that she needs him far more than he thought so he helps her feel safe the only way he knows how, with a gun.
Daniel, ex-army, sniper, hit man for hire is doing his buddy Nick a favor by searching and finding nicks roommate and friend who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and was sold into human trafficking by some angry russians. He was supposed to find her retuwher to the embassy then start searching for his sister who he feared had suffered the same fate when she went missing. But one look at Regan and he knows why she was sild. He finds her dirty used and hopeless, but also breathtakingly beautiful. He knows he should leave her alone, but when the people he got her from start coming after him, he knows this wont be an easy retrieval mission as he thought. At some point I was literally on the edge of my seat and I could totally picture this as a really good action movie
This book is my favorite of the series so far, it was so different than Nick and Daisy story, where theirs was sweet and innocent, Daniel and regan was raw and gritty in the best way possible. I will be the first to say I was a skeptical sally when it came to this story line, no way was someone who had been sold into sex slavery and raped repeatedly would WANT to have any kind of sex or not be affected by it, and while Regan is affected, she is by no means a broken women either. The chemistry between the two of them was hot tamale train hot!
Toward the end I was ready for Naomi and Vasily’s story so much due to getting a small glimpse from this one and that story line too make’s me a little skeptical, but after Last Breath I have no doubt that the story will be anything less than great as well.
