“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.
After Dirty’s Ending, I didn’t know how or if it was even possible for Fix and Sera to find common ground again, considering the reason their lives crossed paths in the first place and the fact that there are still unknown obstacles that await them.
But despite the difficult position that Fix and Sera find themselves in, Fix remains his total badass and cocky self and the more time he spends with Sera and learns about her past and her inner strength, the more consumed he becomes with her, which means that his initial task is no longer his current mission, and while he vows to protect Sera no matter what they encounter, the fact that Fix has to bring back ‘The Priest’ doesn’t bode to well for him, especially since he has a new set of orders, which leads him into a den of vipers and with who he meets up with at the end of Nasty, I truly don’t know if Fix will come out on top because Fix might be a contract killer, the person that he’s up against definitely isn’t afraid to get bloody or messy if it means he comes out the victor. It’s going to be one hell of a fight!
The second book in Fix and Sera’s story reveals some pertinent information about both of them, and the insights that readers get about who Fix was, why he chose that life and his reasons for leaving it all behind explains everything we need to know to have a clearer picture of the holy man he was and the merciless killer he is now. But regardless of all of the new details learned, there are still many questions left unanswered as well as new ones put into the mix and they’re ones that readers will have to wait to be answered until the next book in Fix and Sera’s story is told.
Nasty is the perfect title for the continuation of Fix and Sera’s storyline, partly because of Fix’s profession and the methods he uses to complete his tasks, but also because as Fix and Sera live in the shadows, trying hard to stay out of the light because it could get them killed, the biggest obstacle they have to contend with is how to stay alive when a bounty is more than likely placed on top of both of their heads, and while I don’t doubt Fix’s feelings for Sera and his ability to take care of her even while they’re on the run, the variables that neither of them know about just might be the very things that tear them apart, and while I hope that’s not the case, I’m going to have to wait to test my theory when book three goes live!
