James, Harper, and Sasha are products of their environment. Born into a secret organization that runs a global shadow government, and taught to kill since they were small, they find themselves both indispensable and expendable to all the people they used to trust.

Twenty-eight year old James Fenici has been an assassin since he was sixteen. He’s amassed debts and favors from countless Company brothers and participated in hundreds of Company jobs. But there are not enough favors in the world to clear his debt and make him worthy of the only girl he’s ever wanted.

Eighteen year old Harper Tate is the girl who doesn’t exist. Born and raised on a megayacht in a tropical paradise, she was destined to be a secret until now. No history, no records, and taught to have no opinions or ambition of her own, Harper is suddenly presented with more choices than she can handle.

Thirteen year old Sasha Cherlin is the girl who knows everything and understands nothing at all. Her future is filled with vengeance and death, but her dreams are filled with hope and a promise. A promise who no longer wants her.

The game is on, the pieces are in place, and the players have everything to lose. But who can you trust when everyone’s a traitor?

Coming for You is pretty epic, both as an ending in the Dirty, Dark, and Deadly series, and because the whole team from Rook and Ronin and the spinoffs show up.

My Coming for You review:

Where do I even start a review about the awesomeness that is Coming for You? In Come, I really didn’t like James at all! He made me so uneasy, and I thought he was obnoxious and forceful. However, in Come Back, I got to know him better, and especially the way he was with Sasha won me over completely. Let me just tell you that in Coming for You, he totally blew my socks off! The whole story was very eery, mysterious and filled with tension. Until the very end, I had no idea whom the characters could trust, and each time I read a different point of view, I changed my mind. Huss truly outdid herself here, because the intricacies in the story and the way it unfolded was so well done.

Harper felt like she was thrown under the bus, first because of James, then her father. Everything I read in Coming for You that was from Harper’s point of view made me doubt all the other characters. However, when I read the chapters from James’ point of view, I had doubts, too. Who was still after him, and why? The tension was ever building, and I just couldn’t read quick enough to figure out everything that was going on.

Sasha truly grew as well in Coming for You. She might be only thirteen years old, but she’s very smart, cunning and knows much more than she has shared with the readers in the past books. I think she was the character I doubted the most, especially because even in her chapters, she continued to be secretive, as if she didn’t even want the readers to know fully was she was up to. And it was completely impossible to guess her end-game.

Fast-paced and filled with romance, a little terror, mystery, quite a bit of violence and also some hotness, Coming for You made all the squees possible. I loved it all, and I was thrilled with both of the epilogues, because fucking Ford! Rook and Ronin. Ronnie and Spencer… Need I say more? And also, there will be a book later on about Sasha and someone else. I won’t spoil that for you, though, you’ll have to read the story yourself 😉

Some of my favorite Coming for You quotes:

I have never done a job. Aside form killing those four men who came to blow up my grandparents’ ranch, I’ve never done anything exciting. All the teaching in the world is useless without experience.

“You hungry, Smurf?” James asks. “Starved.” “Me, too.” And then he opens the back door and lets me walk through. Like I said. James is a dream in the partner department. It’s Tet you gotta worry about.

I really want to talk to him and it’s killing me to wait. But I need to play this right. I feel like I’m part of a game. I’m a chess piece. I’m a card that’s being held or played. I’m not quite sure.

“I told you I’d come back.” James did say that. But this isn’t James. I can see the difference in his eyes.

    • Huss manages something not many authors can do, IMO, Sharon. In some of her series, I have been really uneasy about one of her main characters at the beginning, but somehow, as I get to know that character better, and through the changes that character undergoes, I end up loving them anyway.

    • They only show up in a short scene, Lola, but yes, it was great to see them again! I know what you mean about the first book, too, I only gave it three stars. I didn’t enjoy James back then, and Harper seemed a little vapid to me. Already in the second book, I loved them both though.
      I think that if I had put it down, there would be very little chance that I’d pick it back up again…

    • We can’t love them all, now, can we Lily? It’s OK if this isn’t your kind of read – I still like you 😉
      I did have a great time with this series, and I’m kind of wondering what to read next now. There are just too many books fighting for my attention on my kindle.

    • Yeah, J.A. Huss is da bomb, Carmel! She always manages to real me in, which is why I will always continue one of her series, even if I find something I don’t like in the first book. It’s like she lives to torture me, and to make me see the fault of my ways 😉

    • Yes! I’m so happy you’re going to read a Huss book, Silvia! I hope you’ll enjoy her writing, because I am always transported to another world when I read her stories.
      Have a great weekend 🙂

  1. Epic review for an epic story, Lexxie!! I just finished last night and i just couldn’t believe all the twists. And i loved how it all shook out. Especiallu on those epilogues. I’m so happy i converted you to a Hussie. 😉

    *BIG HUGS*

  2. Thank you, Brandee! Those twists and turns were so unexpected, and there was so much tension because of the trust issues. I agree, those epilogues were complete yumminess 🙂 I’m very happy you’ve converted me to a Hussie, too! *BIG HUGS*
