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.
Ever since meeting Mendoza in Last Kiss, I was pulling for him to find love, he had the hint of a troubled soul and I was more than happy to find out that he would get his own story! I loved this story so much more than Nik and Daniel and Vasilly simply because Mendoza was like an anti-guy in the sense that he had a MAJOR hangup about his..um..size which was nicknamed Godzilla and he was a 30-something year old virgin because of it. This did not diminish from the story at all because where he lacked the sexual experience, Ava was there to fill in the holes, literally.
Ave was a breath of fresh air! I loved her sense of humor and she had me laughing out loud more than once throughout the book. I loved the jungle scenes as they were sweet, hot, and romantic all in one. My heart went out to Mendoza throughout the book at his perception of himself and it was refreshing for the girl to be the strong one, emotionally.
Loved, Loved Loved, they never disappoint and the the Hit man novels will be on my re-read list for years to come!
