Summary

Two assassins meet, don’t kill each other, and fall in love.

It’s happily ever after, right?

Not so fast.

Reformed mercenaries Justin Mallory and Gabriel Prescott have taken the big leap of living together. They’re even working together.

But “one last job” has them taking a falsely accused man and his young son into their home for safe keeping.

While dodging bullets and fellow hit men out for the $27 million bounty, Justin and his G Love realize that falling in love was the easy part. Building a life together might be more than they bargained for.

Join Justin and Gabriel for their final adventure as they protect an innocent man and uncover the missing piece to their forever.

The story was great and moved along nicely. The narration was fantastic. I will miss these two guys, they’re a fab couple.

a lovely final to the end of a trilogy

I can't say this book got better then the first one, I think as a whole the series just stayed the same after a flash bang of book 1 but that doesn't mean it wasn't a lovely read and that I didn't love taking a look into their lives again, to see them get a complete HEA

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review. PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!! To my ratings: 5* - very very good it's like an A+ 4* - very good and will be often re-listening it's like an A 3* - it's more then a one-time-listening. it's like a B

Great finale

Final Lover is the third and final book in the Exit Strategy Trilogy. You do need to read these in order, as they follow the men as they meet and make a way for them to have a normal, well, semi-normal life. Justin and Gabriel have retired (though their hander Marilyn stills seek them out for special contracts) They have a nice place hidden in Colorado, two dogs Pete and Repeat and two large cats. They are asked to take a new contract to protect a researcher that is on the run with his son after his husband was killed and he was accused of murdering him. They take the contract only because a notorious assassin is on the trail and they need to get to Kai before he makes a huge mistake. Some assassins do have a code and Kai is one of them, He never would have taken this contract knowing a child was involved, or would he? This story is as exciting as the first two though not as dark. Justin and Gabriel are sexy as ever in this book and Justin is witty as well. There is a good plot as the story is also being wrapped up and all questions from the previous books are answered and no thread is left hanging. This has been a fabulous trilogy. Kenneth Obi gives Gabriel (G Love) a deep Russian type accent, Justin a voice that is fit just for him and the narration slightly different, so it is so easy to follow this story. Sure, the book is good but the narration really punches it up and gives it the added excitement, perfect pacing, and charm. He sighs, huffs, stretch out words and sentences to give punch... more acting than just reading. Plus, you get the added benefit of it being hands-free so you can listen while doing your chores or driving if you were as anxious to hear this as I was!

Loved it but...

Awesome narration and a great end to the series. However, does it upset anyone else when you have utilized 3 credits to follow a series and then it's released as a bundle for a single credit?

Loved This!!

This is the 3rd and final book of the Exit Strategy series. I do hope there is a spin-off as Kai and Devlin definitely need their own story. After taking care of Gabriel's family, and the leftover riff-raff, Justin and Gabriel have moved to CO, bought dogs and are renovating their house to suit them. They are still contract mercenaries, but they are protecting the little, or wronged, members of society. Marilyn asks (pressures) them into protecting a father and son who have a $27M contract out on them. As usual chaos ensues, but it only makes them work harder for their own Happily Ever After. This whole series is excellent, but what would you expect from Jocelynn Drake?

Great conclusion

I loved this final installment of the series! Justin and Gabriel were a lot of fun to tag along with as they saved the good guys once more and finally got everything they'd ever wanted in their happily ever after: family, friends and each other. The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life as per usual!

Finding Romance is Tough for a Mercenary

Another satisfying volume in the Exit Strategy series. A scientist, bringing solar energy to to the world is threatened and his husband murdered. Enter two retired assassins turned protectors. Toss in a six year old, a couple of dogs, and two grumpy cats and you have a mix that just might make a family. Narrator Kenneth Obi makes the story fun by letting the characters tell their story. Kenneth as a child is adorable.

More more more

I love Justin and Gabriel. This series is just so good. I really want and need more. Sexy times are very hot. It’s not angsty.
