These two authors have totally nailed it with this book. You get the sense of danger and mystery pounded in to you as you read this novel. The characters take us from South America to Italy and back to Russia. As I was reading, I could see the scenery unfold and the characters change as if I was watching a movie. Heck, I'd go see this movie and buy it later on DVD. Action adventure in spades!
Both of the lead characters have their issues with intimacy. Vasily was abused as a young boy brought into the Bratva. He doesn't like to touch unless necessary. Naomi has Aspberger's Syndrome and has all kinds of OCD and ritualistic quirks. The very best part of this book is the characterization of Naomi. I have worked in the disabilities field for 25 years and could easily place Naomi as someone I have known. Although some readers will find her humorous, all I could think was, yes indeed, her struggles are very real to so many people. The timing, the banter, the inner dialogue---Fantastic job writing this character!
And this leads me to my love of Vasily. He is not a cuddly kind of guy. He has some tough guy sex appeal but really not friend material much less lover boy. As soon as Vasily realizes Naomi is something "more" than a computer geek, he changes and adapts so that she is comfortable. He figures out her quirks and routines and without asking, just goes ahead and makes sure she is not anxious or stressed. This is what endears him to me. This is why Naomi allows his "germs" in her personal space. This is why they fall in love.
Love the series. This is the best book by far of the three but all of them are 5 heart reads. Be sure to check out these two authors other works while you are busy one clicking this series!
I think I just prefer the more romance parts of the book like the first two stories were heavy on. The first two books were swoon-worthy in my mind and I love re-reading them while this book was something I may read again but maybe not.
Well, Jen Frederick and Jessica Clare have nailed it. I don’t know if they happen to know someone on the Autism Spectrum, or if they just did really great research, but they captured the nuances of someone with Asperger’s and portrayed Naomi in a positive and encouraging light. They highlighted her quirks and sensory sensitivity with humor, and they gave her a hero who embraces her idiosyncrasies and even balances those traits with his own similar peculiarities. Vasily falls for Naomi because of her differences to the other women who have ruled his life, not in spite of them.
I have loved the previous books in the Hit Man series, and Last Kiss was no different. Vasily is the ultimate anti-hero, fiercely protective of the ones he loves and stopping at nothing to preserve the Bratva he has served since he was a young boy. He thinks of nothing but the eradication of those who seek to ruin the Bratva with bad business practices and elevate it into a force that protects the members, rewards them for loyalty and does not rule them with fear and threats.
Vasily is set a task by the Bratva’s council to retrieve a long lost painting. In order to find the painting he needs Naomi, an expert hacker, to trace the origins of the buyer who now has possession of it. Vasily (along with Naomi’s brother) has liberated Naomi from a military compound where she was held hostage and tells her that he will let her go once she helps him find the painting. This sets them on a multi country journey following clues that Naomi unearths from the deep web.
Both Naomi and Vasily have an aversion to touch and Naomi will only eat certain colored foods. She also has a fear of germs and likes her surroundings to be white. In spite of this, Naomi finds herself drawn to Vasily. She begins to test her boundaries with him and in so doing, pushes Vasily’s own limits.
Although my Son is on the opposite end of the Autism Spectrum, I have met and interacted with many individuals who fall under the higher functioning Asperger’s umbrella. Jen and Jessica have brought light to what many would consider a disability and treated a major character with dignity and a great deal of respectful humor while still showing the quirkiness that is Autism. She’s not the sidekick, or the slightly odd best friend. Naomi is the heroine and she helps her hero achieve what he set out to do while finding out what she really wants out of life along the way. Well done Ladies.
