She was the daughter of my worst enemy.
I was the hitman hired to take her out.
When the contract hit my phone, I thought it was fate. The broken, frightened girl who got away. The one who lied about who she was and disappeared without a trace.
Now I had a second chance. There was no doubt I’d do everything to keep her safe, both from my family and the man who wanted her life.
As secrets were revealed, lives were put at risk. But life had taught me there was no running from death.
It might have been fate that brought us together, but it was her past that would tear us apart.
3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
Well hello there new author that kinda just blew my socks off! The Hitman was dark, darker than I usually read, but also had this sweetness to it that made it hard to put down. I fell for Lia and Yanny in chapter one and was rooting for them the whole way through.
I could feel the instant connection between Yanny and Lia. Though they met in less than ideal circumstances, it didn't take long for them to form their bond. The gentle way he soothed her, calmed her fear and anxiety...swoon! But they both had secrets.
Demons that haunted them and shaped who they were. But from all of that, they had this strength that was matched in the other. They were warriors. Survivors. And I loved seeing that confidence come out in Lia and Yanny gave her that safe place to land. However, not everyone was happy with her being in the mix. And when their collective pasts caught up with them, all the ground they had gained crumbled.
My goodness, Ellie Isaacson had me all over the place. Dangerous. Sometimes gory but always full of heart, Yanny and Lia's journey to happy was uniquely theirs. Full of pain and passion. But the way they found strength in each others love proved how perfectly they were suited for one another. While there were a few things here and there that didn't quite add up, they didn't detract from the overall feel. The Hitmam was a solid debut. The full cast of characters laid a good foundation for what is sure to be a steamy and wild series.
