Publisher's Summary

Nikolai: I have been a contract killer since I was a boy. For years I savored the fear caused by my name, the trembling at the sight of my tattoos. If you saw my eyes, it was the last vision you'd have. With her I am the mark, and I am ready to lie down and let her capture me. Opening my small, scarred heart to her brings out my enemies. I will carry out one last hit, but if they hurt her I will bring the world down around their ears.
Daisy: I've been sheltered from the outside world all my life. Home-schooled and farm-raised, I'm so naive that my best friend calls me Pollyanna. I like to believe the best about people. Nikolai is part of this new life, and he's terrifying to me. Not because his eyes are cold or my friend warns me away from him but because he's the only man who has ever seen the real me beneath the awkwardness. With him my heart is at risk...and also my life.
Contains mature themes.

This intense and addictive listen starts off describing the Hell that is Daisy's life because her loving but mentally tortured Father has kept her almost a prisoner for most of her life. Escape is the only way to keep her sanity and, as her nail-biting freedom looms, you can't help but feel sorry for the naive 21 yr old virgin as she slowly claims back her life. But, as Daisy is happy and finally living her life with a new roommate, she is being watched, fantasied about and lusted after by a very dangerous Russian hit man.

While you hate Nikolai's profession you're drawn into his sad beginnings as a very young child on the streets of Russia with little hope of surviving until his mentor saves him and trains him to become the cold blooded feared assassin he is today. However, watching Daisy has brought out Nikolai's caring side and, for the first time, he has dreams, hope and a need for someone else in his life. When they meet for the first time it's so sweet because both of them are ignorant of how to flirt or have a relationship but Nikolai would do anything for his Daisy. They are friends then eventually lovers (nice sex scenes) and are in a bubble of happiness until real life comes crashing in on them in the form of two terrifying vicious Russian mobsters resulting in a pulse-pounding kidnapping, threats, violence, revenge and much much much much more.

This fast paced story flowed so well and took me on a very emotional roller coaster ride that had me smiling with happiness, screaming in terror at the chills and thrills, dizzy with the intrigue and twists, sick with the heartache and shattered dreams and finally giddy with anticipation of a HEA for a couple that were just perfect for each other. Dual POV's, the narration was great, loveable characters and a loving sexy gorgeous Russian bad boy.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YEAH it's got everything I could have wished for..... and delivered more too - so, very creditworthy and I'm eagerly waiting for book 2 which picks up on a couple of loose ends which were left tantalisingly dangling in this listen.

This book by Jessica Clare and Jen Frederick was well written that drew me in by the rarity of it. Daisy and Nikolai couldn't be larger opposites to one another, outwardly anyway.
One a killer, and the other an extremely sheltered 21 year old by a father burdened by horrid past events that freeze him inside his home. He inflicts this abnormal lifestyle on his daughter and finally at 21 she gathers the confidence and money to leave.
Nikolai was a victim of a lifestyle in the Ukraine that develops him as a paid killer. And, he's a good one, making more money than he even knows how much, and an ability to read the emotions of people in such a way that he offers mercy of a sort.
JC and JF, justify wrong (killing) acceptable and join together these two people who need one another and are the answer each need. Nikolai's love for Daisy is touching, sensual, and giving and the creation of the narrative of the sensual experiences between the two is more touching and arousing than any I have listened to before.
The narration from both narrators is excellent. Iggy is someone who I've never listened to, but his voice is outstanding in the audiobook and one who I long to hear again soon.
Definitely worth a credit or moneys to listen to.
