I was thoroughly entertained with this fast-paced, page-turner, “Hitman vs. Hitman” but it left me wondering if Cari Z and L.A. Witt will give us more from Ricardo and August.
A five million dollar pay-day and top on “rate your hit” list, who could refuse!
Ricardo Torralba and August Morrison have no business being together but when they both become the target things get a little crazy and the competition is serious business. They have to team up and try and save anyone connected to them that could possibly become a target. Both are opposed to collateral damage.
August is like a duel personality, hitman/sophisticated, clothes whore. He’s a billionaire and really doesn’t need the money. He’s high tech, especially in security, which is off the charts and blow up your own house rich! But underneath he seems to be insecure and is hiding something about himself.
Ricardo is cool, tries to stay calm and subtle, but August is definitely rubbing him the wrong way. He learns the hard facts that he doesn’t know everything about August.
Things get over-the-top dangerous at they come up against the Cavalcante family of La Cosa Nostra, Pedro Silva and Victor from Ricardo’s past.
Fun read, action packed, lot’s of suspense, danger and tense moments, and of course a little gory, they are hitmen after all! Being a hitman is no joking matter but the banter between Ricardo (don’t call me Ricky) and Augustus ( don’t call me Auggie) is laugh out loud funny.
What I really appreciated from Cari Z and L.A. Witt was that they didn’t have Ricardo and August jumping into a physical relationship immediately. The authors stuck to the plot and had me wondering at every turn who has it out for Ricardo and August. Plus, it’s a gradual learning experience for the two MC’s just managing to get along to work together and save those close to them.
I’ve read both Cari Z and L.A. Witt books and they make a great writing team.
I especially like “Bad Behavior” and the “Double Trouble” series.
