Hit Man (Deadliest Lies #3) by Michele Mannon #mf #review @MicheleMannon @SMPRomance @StMartinsPress

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. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14rachelle-tag

I’ve never read anything by Michele Mannon before and was looking forward to a romantic suspense. Unfortunately, I had to push myself through the story. There were somethings that were interesting and the action was good when Aubrey wasn’t involved. The men of TORC are supposed to be good bad guys. That was what I wanted to read and perhaps if I’d read the previous books in this series, one of them would’ve met my expectation. Instead of coming across as a good bad guy, Diego was just  an asshole and I didn’t buy him and Aubrey as a long term couple for 60-70% of the story.  Most of that had to do with my perception of Aubrey. She was eye rolling stupid. It’s a miracle she survived into adulthood, much less staying in a  foreign country without getting dead. She needed a keeper and her blunders weren’t fun to read at all.


On the upside, Aubrey embraced her sexuality and the bedroom chemistry between her and Diego was excellent. But liking the characters only in the sex scenes didn’t bode well for the rest of the book. I think that if I went into this with the expectation that it was a comedy that I would’ve enjoyed the story more. But I’d expected something very different from what was delivered, leaving me dissatisfied.
