“When you’re with me, you’re not vulnerable. When you’re with me, you are safe. When you’re with me, you will never be alone. And as for your heart, Sera Lafferty…I’ll make it beat so fast you’ll never feel it ache.”
Sera Lafferty isn’t insane.
She’s always made the smart decisions.
She has a career. A loving sister. The carefully mapped out, peaceful life in Seattle that she’s craved since childhood. So why, then, does she suddenly find herself on a scavenger hunt, traveling across the country with a stranger? And not just any stranger. A maddeningly sexy hitman, who’s been paid to end her life.
His past is shrouded in secrets, and his eyes are filled with ghosts. Sera knows she should head back to Seattle, to sever all ties with her handsome man in black. But leaving him might not just hurt Sera in the end. It might end up getting her killed.
Fix Marcosa damn well knows better.
He’s been focused on his goals ever since the fateful day he swore to avenge his friend’s brutal attack. Booze. Drugs. Violence. Sex. Nothing has distracted him from his mission. But Sera is more potent than alcohol, more addicting than any opiate. She makes the fury in his blood sing. And her body? Her body is utter perfection, and he just can’t keep his hands off it. Or his mouth for that matter.
Fix is determined.
Screw the money. Screw the consequences, and screw anybody stupid enough to stand in his way.
He isn’t going to end Sera Lafferty’s life.
He’s damn well going to save it.
*** Nasty is book 2 in the Dirty Nasty Freaks series *** (less)
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Nasty is the much awaited second book in the Dirty Nasty Freak series. The first book, Dirty, ended with a big plot twist and I was eager to see how Fix and Sera were getting on. Well let me tell you they got on extremely well, a lot better than I anticipated. The friction between them varied but mostly they were generating more heat than chill.
There were facets to Sera’s story that almost drove me to stop reading. Her back story is horrendous and heartbreaking. I was grateful the flashbacks to her past were minimal. That said, I wanted to reach for the brain bleach on a couple of occasions.
Fix is considerably laid back in Nasty. He even appeared careless in some of his actions. This was not the highly focused Fix we met in Dirty. I embraced the last 25% where he came through strong, proactively going after the threat looming over Sera. Now that was the Fix I had been waiting for!
The character who shone brightest in this dark story was Monica. She is one sassy, complicated lady who I can’t get enough of! When she appeared on the page, the other characters became stronger and the story came to life.
Then there was the ending. The final chapter said so much in one sentence alone. While I was left craving the edginess of Dirty, it wasn’t until the last 25% of the book that I felt the suspense build to the level I experienced in the first book. This book was every bit as dirty as it was nasty.
While Nasty was a little too laid back for me at the same time it had deep dark moments that took me way out of my comfort zone. There’s nothing more I can add without spoiling the story but what I can leave you with is that I know I will be eager once again to read the next book in the series!
