Release Day Review: Target On Our Backs (Monster In His Eyes #3 ) By J.M. Darhower

Target on Our Backs by J.M. Darhower
Series: Monster in His Eyes #3 
Publication Date: February 23rd 2016


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.

"Through every dark night, there's a brighter day. - Tupac Shakur"

This is one of my favorite quotes and I just loved that JM Darhower mentioned it in this book. In many books there are a lot of quotes from classic books or plays (which I haven't read any of). So having quotes that are familiar to me is refreshing. Just like the previous books every time Tupac is mentioned I get a big smile on my face. He is my all time favorite artist!

"I'll always come for you, the fucking devil himself couldn't stop me."

Let's move on to the book itself. This is my favorite book in the series because we finally see Naz and Karissa as one. They are in sync and have come such a long way if you think back to how they were in the previous two books. Especially Karissa has grown so much, she was so understanding and could stand on her own two feet. I finally saw Naz and Karissa as equals.

"She's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. She's beautiful because she's stong. Beautiful because she's fierce."

We see another side to Karissa, I just loved her so much in this book! She was so strong and fierce and protective of Naz. She finally really understood and accepted him. This way they really had the chance to grow further as individuals and as a couple. I just couldn't get enough of them in this book. I wish it was longer because I just didn't want to say goodbye.

"I'm just so tired of never having the ground under me. I feel like we're free falling, and everything around us just keeps moving in a blur, and I don't know how to make it slow down so we can land on our feet."

In this book there is a new enemy that doesn't agree with Naz's decision to get out of the business. There is also a new player in the game and he is complicating things. Naz doesn't know if he is a friend or enemy. I was confused in the beginning as well, I didn't know if he was playing a game with Naz. You will have to read this book to get to know this new and VERY interesting character. I hope there will be spinoff featuring him!! Because I am intrigued by him and want to know more.

I want to thank JM Darhower for writing this book to conclude Naz and Karissa's story because it was perfect.
