Nix. (Den of Mercenaries #3) by London Miller

Would you like a gift?

Five little words ...

They should have meant nothing, just a proposition made by a man Luna Santiago didn't know for reasons she didn't understand.

Five little words was all it had taken to open her eyes and see the new life he offered.

With five little words, Kit Runehart owned her.

4 out of 5 stars

Can be read as a standalone- but highly recommended to read the prior books in the series in order. 

Nix is my favorite book in the series so far because we finally get a closer look inside The Kingmaker's world.

The story starts off with Kit "Nix" Runehart and Luna "Calavera" Santiago in marriage counseling. The therapist asks them some questions and they begin to retell their past from the beginning.

Before Luna became a mercenary, she was just a regular girl with dreams. Her normal life ended when she was kidnapped and sold to a brothel. From there she was taken again to become a trained killer.

As Kit trained Luna, he couldn't stop the developing feelings. Even though he wasn't supposed to become so involved in her life, he always ended up watching her back.

This isn't an instalove story. London Miller goes into great detail about the events that changed them. How their love was created and then later destroyed. The pace is a little slow, but I found it very fitting.

I love Kit. He's powerful, cunning, and ruthless... but at the same time he's a passionate lover and husband. It's obvious that Kit and Luna are anything but over. Unfortunately, even if they come back together, someone is going to get hurt.

The puzzle gets bigger as more players join the game. I'm so curious about the mystery. Who is crazy enough to go against The Kingmaker and his ruthless organization? I can't wait to read the next book!
