Book Review ~ Day Three by L. Wilder

Copy of IMG_1339

Title: Day Three: A Hitman Romance

Series: What Bad Boys Do #1

Author: L. Wilder

Release Date: June 11, 2019

Genre: Romantic suspense (standalone)

 

Blurb:

There’s nothing more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose.

 

New York Times and USA Today Best Seller L. Wilder brings readers Jasper Nichols, a sexy, totally alpha hitman, who will hold you captive in this new bad boy series.

 

Our lives are defined by moments, especially the ones we never see coming. For me, that moment came when I was given the opportunity to take from those who’d taken from me. I became a hitman- killing mob bosses, drug lords and everything in between. With judges in their pockets, these men were untouchable by everyone—except me.

 

With every hit, my plan was always the same:

Day one- receive the target.

Day two- acquire their location.

Day three- plan the kill.

Day four- complete the hit.

 

On day three of my latest assignment, everything changed.

The moment I saw her, I knew she was different from the others. Madison Brooks wasn’t a hardened criminal with blood on her hands. She was innocent, untouched by my world, and undeniably beautiful.

 

On day three, I couldn’t get her out of my head. I kept imagining what it would be like to hold her, touch her, and claim her as mine.

 

On day three, I found myself questioning whether or not I could complete my assignment. In fact, I found myself questioning everything.

 

Many readers were introduced to the sexy, brooding recluse, Jasper Nichols, in Murphy: Satan’s Fury- Memphis, but his connection to Satan’s Fury ends there. Day Three is a new standalone romance novel with no cheating and a swoon-worthy HEA.

REVIEW

MY RATING: 🌟 🌟 🌟 1/2

Jasper Nichols has been a hired hitman for a few years after an opportunity presented itself to go after the criminals who can’t be touched because of money and power. Besides traveling for those jobs he has stayed in self isolation in his cabin deep in the mountains. For the most part Jasper has been content with life, never questioning his handler on a hit and never getting involved with a woman besides the occasional one night stand. But his newest assignment immediately gives Jasper pause, because unlike the usual mob bosses and drug lords, Madison Brooks is the farthest from being a criminal and what comes next is a series of events that will change the course of both their lives, whether for better or worse I will not spoil that surprise.

For the most part I did enjoy reading Day Three but for being about a hitman who is pretty much the best at his job, this story leaned more towards cutesy and away from action and suspense. I was really hoping for more on Jasper and his backstory but besides the little bit that details the tragedy that pushed him towards staying alone, there wasn’t much else said. I found it a little odd how quick he flipped the switch when it came to Madison, I understand not believing she could do something wrong but looks can always be deceiving. The storyline did pick up towards the end which I really liked, those scenes were intense and had my eyes glued to the pages. There is an epilogue so technically these characters and their story is done but since Day Three is also the start of a series I do hope for more glimpses of them in the upcoming books, which I am looking forward to reading.

Praise for the novel:

  1. Wilder definitely sucked me in with this new hitman romance. This fast-paced romantic suspense will keep you on the edge-of-your-seat until the very end.  ~Author RB Hilliard

OMG!!!! Five stars +! What a fantastic read. Day Three is the first book in a new series and it is everything you want in a L. Wilder book.  ~Brenda (Amazon reviewer)

That prologue – wow!!! If the blurb didn’t already hook you, that sure will! Or maybe it’s the sexy man on the cover???! I absolutely loved everything about this story! It’s unlike anything I have read before. ~Jessica (Goodreads reviewer)

 

Excerpt:

“I thought you’d be more comfortable in here.” He ran his hand over his face and yawned before he said, “When I tried to leave, you wouldn’t let me.”

 

​“What do you mean I wouldn’t let you?”

 

​“Let me rephrase.” He turned and looked at me. “You asked me to stay with you.”

 

​“Oh. I don’t remember that.”

 

“Happened just the same.” Concern flashed through his eyes as he sat up and asked, “How’s the ankle?”

 

I tried to move it a little. “I can’t say for sure, but I think it’s better.”

 

“Good.” Jasper got out of bed and my breath caught when I noticed he was only wearing a pair of boxer briefs. I could feel the heat rush to my face as my eyes skirted over his muscular chest and drool-worthy abs. I couldn’t imagine how often he’d have to work out to get such a perfectly defined physique. Whatever the answer, it was worth it. With his chiseled jaw and broad, powerful shoulders, he looked like a Greek god as he walked over to the end of the bed. I couldn’t take my eyes off him as he eased the comforter back and exposed my ankle. I was too busy gawking at him to realize what he was doing, but at that moment, I just didn’t care. He could’ve thrown the covers to the floor and had his way with me. I wouldn’t have protested. He lowered his hand to my foot, and a rush of heat surged through my body when he ran the tips of his fingers along the top of it and over my ankle bone. It was at that moment I started to silently curse myself, wishing I’d been better about shaving my legs. He was still studying my ankle when he said, “The swelling has gone down, but it’s still pretty bruised.”

 

“It’ll be fine.”

 

“You’ll need to stay off of it for a couple of days.”

 

“Okay.”

 

As he pulled the covers back over my foot, he told me, “I’ll be right back.”

 

Author Bio:

Leslie Wilder grew up in a small town in West Tennessee. A country girl at heart, she’s always thought that life is too short, but she had no idea how short it really was until her brother passed away in 2014. She’s always been an avid reader, loving the escape only a great book can give, and wondered if she had what it took to write one of the wild romances she’d come to adore. With the support of her family and friends, she published Inferno: A Devil Chaser’s MC, one year after her brother’s death. With him in mind, she fulfilled her lifetime dream of writing. Since then, she’s completed the Devil Chaser’s Series and continued on with the Satan’s Fury MC Series. She has so many stories in her head, and can’t wait to share each and every one.

 

Leslie has been blown away by the support of her readers, appreciating every message, review, and encouraging word she’s received over the past year. She looks forward to continuing this journey with them for years to come.

Crazy woman
from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a
necessity!), I have been writing since … forever? Yeah, that sounds about
right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see
shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I’m
clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.
I like dogs
more than I like most people, and I don’t trust anyone who doesn’t drink. No, I
do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the
year, there’s your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a
curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can’t
understand me.
Yeah. I

About the Author

T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.

T.M. enjoys writing what she calls sexy‘wrongside of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.

Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay.

She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please don’t pinch her because she’s not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.

I had a life, love, and future to give.
Until my enemy took a wife.

The devil has a name, and it’s Cristiano de la Rosa. On my wedding day, he was
the last man I expected to see standing at the altar. He wants to make me his
queen. His brother wants to rescue his princess.

Getting Cristiano to lose control becomes the name of the game, and the stakes
are life and death. But as truth and lies blur, loyalty is tested, and our
chemistry threatens to reach the melting point, the prize grows less clear.
Either freedom no longer means what I think it does, or Cristiano is as devious
as everyone says, and he’s mastered the art of playing my mind.

All I know for certain is that nothing is certain. And all you need to know?
This is a love story.
But even love stories have to end.

Book Description

“Tell me a secret,” I ask.

“I’m falling for you.”

Austin Sexton is a bad-boy media mogul and heir to the Sexton Empire. On the outside, he’s a whiskey-slinging bachelor with the world on a string. Problem is, strings break easily.

Deep within lies a war hero who refuses accolades. He buries his pain with his vices, and against my better judgment, I’ve become one of them.

No matter how hard I try to push him away, his secrets draw me in. This man, who appears careless, has passion. If I were looking for someone in my life, I could see myself falling for a guy like him.

Good thing love is the last thing I’m looking for.

*The Sexton Brothers novels are stand-alone books that can be read in any order.
