Publisher's Summary

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? He's 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.

Daniel: For the last 18 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.

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.

Contains mature themes.

I CLUNG ON TO EVERY WORD.... & HELD MY BREATH TOO

Right from the start the hard hitting storyline grips you as the story picks up from book 1 after Reagan had been kidnapped, repeatedly raped, kidnapped again and then sold and is now in a dark basement chained up, treated like an animal and 'servicing' men. But her spirit isn't broken as she recites Zombie Movies in her head whilst things are being done to her body and somehow it's often her they are afraid of. But then one day in walks an American who has bought her for a little while and is taking her out, out to daylight and out of her Hell hole. She doesn't know if this is finally the end for her..... but she plans. Daniel has actually come to save her, and his Sister, he's gone through 18 months searching, rescuing and killing and he doesn't intend to stop until they are all back home free...... but fate has a different plan for them all.

This is an intense journey and your emotions go from euphoria to despair in a heartbeat and then laughter to tears in the next as these two damaged people find romance and love amongst the backdrop of chaos, murder, gangs, the Russian Bratva, bloodshed and destruction which somehow makes their bond unbreakable.

Writing a Review for a book you loved is so easy because Reagan and Daniel's story was all kinds of terrible, all kinds of shocking and all kinds of wonderful too. It was so well written you could picture each thrilling, chilling or romantic and tender scene and each and every character that made up this brilliant listen. The narrators did a great job with the many voices and emotions called for and it was a dual POV listen that had plenty of romance, sex, dirty talking and loving in amongst the violence.

Worth a credit? When you're in the mood for a more hard hitting love story then they don't come much better than this series dedicated to men who have somehow lost their way in life and have become, for whatever reason, Hit Men but are saved by love. Very creditworthy, the next book is already downloaded for when I next need a hit.

Great Story About about Healing & Love

Would you listen to Last Breath again? Why?

I can listen to this over & over, it is that good. Daniel & Reagan were made for each other following the trauma that Reagan went through Daniel helped heal her & eventually they both loved one another.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Reagan, because she was so brave through everything she went through,

What does Iggy Toma and Kasha Kensington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The expressions of the characters, They brig the characters to life.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh many times when Daniel would tease her to get a rise out of her & keep her from feeling down. I felt bad for what Reagan went through but she was a fighter not a loser.

Any additional comments?

It was a great listen & well worth a credit.

Brutal Love Story .... full of twists!!

Would you consider the audio edition of Last Breath to be better than the print version?

I did not read the print version. I did enjoy the audio. This is a brutal love story. The characters experience so many negative (for lack of a better term) and brutal situations .... it's a wonder they are able to stay strong.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Last Breath?

The scene outside of the American Embassy.

Have you listened to any of Iggy Toma and Kasha Kensington ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I don't think so ... but I did like the performance in this story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I would not make a movie about this book.

Any additional comments?

If you like angst ridden love stories this is the book for you. The heroine experiences so many brutal situations .... and still manages to dig deep down and stay strong in spite of everything. In the first book (which I recommend reading first) she did not seem to have the fortitude that she has in this book. I am looking forward to listening to book 3 when I finish this review. Worth a credit or a sale.

Absolutely wonderful hitman/mercenary book. It's the second in the series and it does a great job of answering questions left from book one.

Loved this story

I loved this story! The sex scenes are a little intense for my taste but the story was so awesome I didn’t care. You can actually fast forward through the sex scenes without missing anything important.

I’m in love with Daniel

Omg! Daniel is everything!
Alpha, patient protector to a traumatized Reagan and hot as hades but also a badass killer on a mission to find his kidnapped autistic sister. And Reagan is as brave as she is traumatized by cruel sex slave traders. My heart melted over and over during the sex scenes where Reagan wasn’t sure she could ever have sex again, Daniel was so patient, kind and thoughtful with her and the way he loves her with such sweetness and tries to make her laugh and can recognize when she’s feeling uncomfortable all while dodging bad guys and bullets makes Daniel every woman’s fantasy. This story definitely deals with dark subject matter but Daniel isn’t an alpha that treats women like garbage, he is the knight in tattered armor who finds the love of his life while saving abused women. This is a MUST READ!
