Review: Target on Our Backs (Monster In His Eyes #3) by J.M. Darhower


The best way to keep your word is never to give it.

Not long ago, in a chapel in Vegas, I swore to love Karissa for the rest of my days. But nobody’s promised an infinite number of tomorrows. Nobody’s promised forever. Sometimes, all we have left is today.

Carpe Diem
Seize the day.

It should’ve been over, we should’ve been happy, but people are making it hard for me to live in peace. I’ve got so much blood on my hands they’ll never be clean, and somebody out there seems to want me to pay for it. Happily Ever After always comes at a cost, one any real man would be willing to pay. But that doesn’t mean I’m just going to roll over and accept these consequences.

Because when it comes to the woman I love? The life I’ve fought for?

Nobody is safe.

My Review

“At some point, every part of me became every part of that. The life isn’t just something I lived….it was how I survived. It infused itself into everyone one of my cells, infecting every mitochondrion. It’s in my blood and my bones, and unless you drain me dry and rip me to pieces, you’ll never rid me of all of it.”

“I’ve lied, and stolen, and cheated. I’ve taken lives and assaulted men. I’ve gotten what i wanted through coercion, through intimidation, using force when necessary. I always win.”

I don’t know about you guys, but I was over the moon when I found out that there would be more Naz and Karissa. I could not wait to get my hands on Target on Our Backs and I gotta tell you, it does not disappoint.

Now, I can’t say too much about this story because I don’t want to spoil it for you. But, if you know me, then you know I’ll let you know what you’re in for. Target on Our Backs sucks you into the story from the very first page. From the very first page, you are consumed. You might as well cancel all of your plans for the day because you will not want to put this story down. And me; I totally devoured this book.

As a fan of Naz and Karissa, I will never say no to more of their story. And this final installment certainly lives up to its predecessors. Things have never been easy for this pair. Their love is one for the books and is gritty and intense. They are so wrong for each other, yet oh so right. Their connection so strong, so palpable. I love every moment spent with the two of them.

Target on Our Backs is well written and entertaining. It is just as dark and gritty as the first two books. The conclusion to Naz and Karissa’s story will keep you on the edge of your seat, holding your breath, just waiting to see how it will all play out. You will find yourself wondering if it is possible for our two main characters to get that HEA they desperately need.

Target on Our Back is filled with action, romance, suspense and mystery. There is danger lurking around every corner. And the hits just keep coming, right until the very end. I loved every single thing about this story and could not have been happier with the way this series has ended. My only complaint is that I have to say goodbye to Naz and Karissa. But, if I have to do it, I’m pleased with the send off they were given. Fans of this series, you will not be disappointed with this epic conclusion.
