I didn't tell Roman we had a son. I didn't know.
This town was going to sh*t long before I got here. Alexandria's the kind of place that attracts the scum of the earth - people like me. It's a real mob city. The only person doing a damn thing to turn it round was Ellie. But I barely met her before her abusive ex stole her away - and left her in a coma.
I'll remember the night we shared until my dying day. Fate snatched her away from me once, but this time I'm not giving him a say. Ellie's been hurt more in her life than anyone I've ever met. So when Victor Antonov put a hit out on her, I knew I had to stop it. I had to save her. Victor's about to find out what happens when you threaten the woman I love.
I'm going to make him pay.
I don't remember what happiness feels like.
Four years with Rick saw to that. When the police locked him away, Roman showed me how to feel again, how to hope - and how a man should treat his lady. And then Rick broke out of jail. Seeing him in that dark alleyway was the last thing I remember. And I forgot. I forgot everything: love, and hope - and even Roman himself.
Now my life's in the balance, and every gangster in Alexandria is hunting for me. There's only one man on my side, a killer called Roman. He stirs something inside me, and every time I see him, my body aches. It's trying to tell me something, trying to reveal a secret...
I just don't know what.
Hitman's Baby is a standalone secret baby romance, the second in the Mob City universe - but don't worry, you can read it on its own! Holly doesn't do cliffhangers, and she guarantees an HEA every time. You'll also get a free bonus book - Tackle: A Bad Boy Sports Romance. Both novels are 65,000 words each, so there's plenty to get stuck into!
This book definitely did not go in the direction I was lead to believe. It's a good story, it had much more substance than I expected.
It concentrated on her recovering from her memory loss after coming out of a coma and the mob-related story she was working on before the incident, the baby part felt like an afterthought. I know that was suppose to be the main object for Ellie and Roman but ......I don't know, whatever.
There are twist and turns, action and suspense that will keep some readers going but it wasn't enough for me. Also, I received this copy in exchange for a honest review......soooo I might have received an unedited version because the typos and her dog's sex change, was just wrong. (The dog was referred to as a girl, then a boy, then a girl again.....and this was before Ellie's coma/amnesia).
Anyhoo, good read with a HEA.
