Review: Hit Man (Deadliest Lies #3) by Michele Mannon

He always gets what he wants.

The seasoned seducer, who probably charms the panties off of every woman he meets. Diego is handsome. Arrogant. Dangerous. Far more dangerous than anyone I've ever met. And with one look from across a crowded room he has me; hook line and sinker, I'm his for the night.

Diego is not a man to mess with, I know that. I just can't seem to resist his kiss, his touch. But can I trust him with my heart, with my body?

I'm being hunted for something I may or may not have seen, and Diego is my only way out of a world of death and destruction. If only I can believe his dark promises.

On an undercover Mission for TORC, Diego is desperately trying to gather information. Only one thing keeps getting in his way: Aubrey. Aubrey has left her home in America in hopes of bettering the world architectural degree. Her goal: help build affordable housing for those less fortunate. When things don’t go quite as expected, she is forced to take a position teaching English at a private school. Hoping to get her dream back on track she seeks out a local wealthy man to get funding, not knowing what trouble lays ahead of her.

 

And then there was Hit Man. As just a read, it was great. Aubrey was cute, likable and like a darn cat going through its nine lives. How someone could keep finding herself in the wrong place at the wrong time repeatedly and not wind up dead is beyond me. Diego is sexy and cunning although as much as I saw him as an agent, I just don’t get the hit man aspect. Throwing these two together had me waffling back and forth between sniggering and fanning myself. Hello! I wouldn’t mind a hot naked man turning up everywhere I looked. They definitely have quite the adventure together. Throw in the ever more interesting Hayden to keep things going. Everything ends in a shocking whodunit and a HEA ending.

 

Yes it reads very well as a stand-alone. There in lays my problem. Hit Man is part of the Deadliest Lies series. Now I’ve read the first two books and they were awesome. One of the big selling points to me were how they didn’t run in sequential order, instead they ran concurrently. That I loved because I could see how they tied together as a series. Hit Man, not so much. I mean there were characters, good and bad, from previous books so yes this implies series. Unfortunately, the concurrent magic that I loved from the beginning is missing here. Therefore, while Hit Man was an enjoyable read, it just didn’t have that special oomph for me.
