Publisher's Summary

Life is good for lodge owner and sometime-hit woman Nadia Stafford - a couple of dogs, a job she takes satisfaction in, and the man she loves at her side as they literally build a home together. It's as close to normal as a pair of contract killers can get.
Jack knows that sometimes being very, very good at what you do can be very, very bad - for those around him. He's gone to great lengths to keep his past from catching up with Nadia. He also knows it's only a matter of time....
Jack is halfway around the world when the trap is triggered. They're coming for Nadia. And he has no way to warn her.

Fast-paced, full of suspense and unexpected twists

I only recently read Wild Justice, the final book in the Nadia Stafford series, and was sad to see the series finish. I started this series back in 2011/2012 so I’ve followed these characters and watched the story unfold for a long time so I was very excited to hear about the two novellas Kelley Armstrong was releasing which follow on from the final book. Although I was satisfied with the ending of the last book, it’s always nice to revisit characters and see what they are up to now.

The novella begins shortly after Wild Justice with Nadia and Jack together but currently in separate countries. This story continues with some themes from the final book with Jack worried about Nadia’s choice and what it really means to be with him. It has been touched on before but it is the main focus of this novella and it provides us with lots of action, suspense and character development. We also get updates on other characters from the series. I enjoyed reading more about Evelyn and learning more about her relationship with Jack. There really were so many little things to love in this novella, as well as, the whole story of course.

The novella is told from two points of view, Nadia and Jack. The previous books have been told from Nadia’s point of view so it was very interesting to see things from Jack’s perspective and it worked really well with the narrative of this story. My favourite parts were seeing Jack and Nadia’s relationship develop despite the obstacles that keep getting thrown at them. They became stronger and a milestone in their relationship took place in this novella which was satisfying and well worth the wait to long term readers of the series.

I received the audiobook in exchange for a review. I haven’t listened to many audiobooks so this was still new to me. I got through this so quickly though and always wanted to listen to more. It was addictive, fast paced and action packed. The narrator, Vivienne Leheny, did a great job reading the novella and voicing the different characters.

Overall, this was a brilliant novella, giving the readers a look at what happened next and allowing them to see the characters develop even further. It was fast-paced, full of suspense and unexpected twists, you really couldn’t ask for more. I was very happy and content with how the novella ended but there is another novella after this. I’m a bit worried as Double Play was so good, that it may not be possible to top but I am looking forward to reading what happens next and I’m sure I will enjoy it.
