Despite its description of a hitman contracted to take out an apparently innocent mark don't go expecting a dark romance as this really isn't one.
At its heart, "Day Three" is a really sweet love story that combines suspense and action with an almost healing balm of how the right person can help to heal the broken pieces of a damaged psyche.
This one is an easy read that is told in dual pov.
Its very instalove, low on the relationship angst with a deep romantic vein.
It did work for this an

Very safe. Predictable but at least hero wasn’t a ho and heroine wasn’t a virgin. Not that she was very experienced but at least she wasn’t a V. The best part? The doggie!
I would like to read about his brother Grady. But the other brother who’s name is escaping me now ( he must not have made a good impression on me because I can’t remember his name) it’s up to debate since it seems he’s a ho.
Book Review for Day Three by L. Wilder  
We are just loving this author this was another great read for us full of suspense drama and a whole lot of surprises.
We really loved the character's they had amazing chemistry and not only that they just fit.
Soldier turned hit man who would have thought but, Jasper had his reasons and soon it became his life until one hit turned out to be more than he ever dreamed of.
Madison was just and ordinary gal doing her thing until one day her life turned upside

Shelves: safe
A nice story, but very naive written.
Plot holes everywhere. For being a professional the hero certainly didn't act like one.
He 'kidnapped' her, but didn't turn off her mobile? Silly...
But he wasn't a manwhore and they didn't trash his deceased ex, it's rare.

Day Three: A Hitman Romance by L. Wilder is a must read by this author!!! The storyline and characters of Jasper and Madison was well thought out and the chemistry between these two was stirring as was as arousing. Jasper who is trying to overcome his pain and issues of his past leaves everything behind by living a secluded life. Now he is given the opportunity to use his skills by being contracted as a hitman to get his revenge. But his next assignment does not feel right when he learns that hi ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I started this book, other than that I have really enjoyed everything I've read by this author. And I've read them all. This one was a bit different but still full of all the sexy alpha male hotness I've come to expect from this author. On top of that, there is a great story with some VERY interesting plot twists!

Jasper Nichols is a damaged man with nothing left to fight for. Even so, he still has a moral compass (albeit, a slightly askew compass). And something

Jasper is an assassin, he’s lethal and always gets his man. He carefully plots his assignment before hand for two days, then on the third he gets ready to complete his mission...and then he’s outta there, boom, done. His latest mark is an unsuspecting Madison, a - girl next door type - who’s happily living out her innocent life hurting nobody. Jasper is stupefied as to why and who would want to hurt such a harmless girl.
This was a very intriguing story. Jasper and Madison made a great team. The

Great Characters!

That prologue - wow!!!
If the blurb didn’t already hook you, that sure will! Or maybe it’s the sexy man on the cover???!
I absolutely loved everything about this story! It’s unlike anything I have read before. Very original in my opinion.

Jasper is a hired hit man who takes out all the really bad guys. Next on his list.... a woman who seems 100% innocent. But is she????
He doesn’t know.
It makes him question the task.
It makes him kidnap her to get answers. He doesn’t believe she is

It was a good start to a new series. Though, it was a bit hard to get in at the beginning, but soon enough I got caught in the story and to find out what the heck is going on. I was wondering and guessing who's the culprit... And while I wasn't surprised much about who he was, I was caught of guard with the reason. And I wanted to smack someone. Like wtf?!
Honestly, it's hard for me to write this review, because I wanna to say a lot, but I don't know how without spoilers.

My rating: 3.5

Jasper Nichols has been a hired hitman for a few years after an opportunity presented itself to go after the criminals who can't be touched because of money and power. Besides traveling for those jobs he has stayed in self isolation in his cabin deep in the mountains. For the most part Jasper has been content with life, never questioning his handler on a hit and never getting involved with a woman besides the occasional one night stand. But his newest assignment immediately gives J

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Our lives are defind by moments, especially the ones we never see coming. For me, that moment came when I was given the opportunity to take from those who'd taken from me. I became a hitman-killing mob bosses drug lords and everything in between. With judges in their pockets, these men were untouchable by everyone-except me. With every hit, my plan was always the same.

A fun, quick little jaunt with a hitman who can't figure out his next job.

Jasper has severe PTSD issues since the Iraqi war, and watching the girl who waited for him through his deployment get killed right in front of him really isn't helping.

After separating himself from that life, and moving to woods, Jasper is contacted by his former military commander to get back in the ugly business of war.

Madison is a very normal girl working at an art gallery, and Jasper can't figure out why people want

Holy Hades what a ride I got out of this book. I loved every moment of it and had to keep reading late into the night until I finished it because I just had to know what was going to happen.

I mean its not everyday that a hit man falls for his mark. Jasper is different though because he is a serious alpha male who has nothing to live for so he becomes a hit man taking out all the scum of the world and he loves his job. Then he gets this one assignment and he thinks he has it all wrong because the

Ok I am totally floored with this book.
I love all of L Wilder's books and this one is just as good as the others and I love how this author has not let me down on the quality of her writing.
Jasper and Madison meet under different circumstances, and Jasper knows she is not what he thought when he was put on the job. Finding out who put the hit on sweet Madison what a shock and I bet money that it will shock you too

When I first read that L. Wilder had a book coming out and that it wasn't going to be one of her famous MC stories. I was a little nervous because I'm a big fan ... BIG FAN of her MC men. What was I worried about? Once I started reading Day Three I did not want to put it down. Jasper Nichols captured me right from the beginning.

Jasper stole my heart, I felt his emptiness, his emptiness was my heartbreak. A tragedy leads him into a life as a hitman. A hitman with a conscious. He's the best at wha

Okay so this is a different style of writing for my favorite author L. Wilder. Now you see Jasper in Murphy but that's all the connection.

I love L. Wilder, anything she does I will read. She can take on any genre of writing. Her MC is some of my favorite ever. When she said she was going to bring to life something else I knew I had to one click. And I wasn't disappointed either. The way the store had me hooked from the begining to end I didn't want it to end. I tried to read it slow because of

The book is very well written to the point like I felt like I was right their living the action with characters I had known for years. The books simply stole my heart from the very beginning with events that lead up to Jasper becoming the cold, reclusive man he is today.

Day Three is an exciting, thrill ride of a story that starts a new series from this author. It is not an MC read but the author has taken her tremendous skills and applied them to this romantic suspense story, proving that she is a master of alpha men and writing.

This is the story of Jasper Nichols, a complete and total alpha who is also a hitman (if you’ve read Murphy then you have met him before but it is not necessary). He is your dream man (believe me you’ll want him)! I debated about giving

OMG this book has intrigue right from the start. Your questions will turn from who to why. I love how this story has a ‘Jo Raven’ feel to it which is another beloved author. Don’t worry this is definitely a Ms Wilder book but it gave me all the feels that she and other favorite authors produce. All the mystery and unraveling backstory kept encouraged my need to devour this read.

Leslie has done it again! We first heard of Jasper in "Murphy" of Satan's Fury MC - Memphis, and we knew he had a story! In "Day Three", Wilder takes us into the mind of a killer for hire, but plot twist, she throws in a beautiful young woman as the next intended hit. Jasper struggles with his orders, and in turn, struggles with his feelings for Madison. Madison is a strong, independent woman trying to make her way in the art world when she bumps into the handsome stranger in her gallery, and th ...more

Really enjoyed this...,

This book has it all...mystery, excitement and yes it’s sexy. Jasper has been through a lot, he suffers from PTSD, watched his girlfriend being killed , so he locked himself away from the world. Becoming a hitman came natural, he’d take out the criminals that our system wouldn’t. That’s how he meets her.....his next hit.

Madison is young, beautiful, had a boring life so when she wakes up from being drugged in a strange bed she’s very confused as to what’s going on.
