Title: When It All Began
Author: Scott Hildreth (SD Hildreth)
Release Date: February 5th, 2015
Series: A Jessie Jayne Novella
Cover Artist: Jessica Hildreth


Jessie Jayne is a former CIA agent. She is now employed as an independent contractor - a hit woman. 

Her primary employer? 

The US Department of Justice. 

She hunts and eliminates the criminals who escape the government's 98 percent conviction rate in court. If a suspected terrorist escapes punishment with a not guilty verdict, they're considered for permanent elimination. On an as ordered basis, receiving direction from a contractor hidden deep within the government's bowels, her targets come from the DOJ's secret list. 

That is until her name makes the top of the list. 

The hunter soon becomes the hunted in this tale of corruption, lies, and attempting to find the truth, regardless of the cost.

I received this book as a gift in exchange for an honest review.

When It All Began: A Jessie Jayne novella is a quick read that left me intrigued from page one. Who is Jessie Jayne? A killer, not just any killer, but one that is hired out from the government. Top secret stuff is going on here.

I just love the fact that the female is a contract killer. I've read too many stories where the heroine is this naive, vulnerable woman who couldn't hurt a fly....but thankfully this story is the complete opposite. Jessie Jayne is my kind of woman. She's tough, feisty, and not afraid of anything. She's quick on her feet and a total bad a$$.

When she gets into trouble, the only person she can call is her ex Gavin. I really wanted more interactions with Gavin, but that's probably going to happen in another book. This book is short, remember it's a novella, so don't be upset when it ends right quick. Usually, I am not a fan of books that leave me wanting more, but I'm really interested in what's going to happen next and can't wait to see what this author has planned.

About Scott Hildreth
Scott Hildreth is a very analytical sort who bases his beliefs on statistics he compiles in his head. Often going as long as a month without so much as a single sip of water, he drinks coffee as if it were the lifeblood of his writing. 

Scott fears flying, clowns, and amusement park rides. Tall and lean with a cleanly shaven head and covered in tattoos, he doesn’t blend in well. After reading his writings, this makes perfect sense. His vibrant characters, backstories, and plots, although always relatable, generally stand out as much as he does. 

Willing to discuss matters at length most people shy away from, Scott’s writing has revolved around such subjects as domestic abuse, suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, cancer, divorce, homosexuality, religion, and lack thereof. 

Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house. 

Scott's novels include Broken People, Undefeated, Unstoppable, Unleashed, Unbroken, Baby Girl - Ruined, Baby Girl - Owned, Baby Girl - Loved, To the Depths of Hell, The Alpha-Bet, Finding Parker, Karter, Confessions of a Smut Author, Making the Cut: Selected Sinners MC series, Book One and now, When It All Began: A Jessie Jayne Novella.
Watch for Scott’s Selected Sinners MC series Book Two to be released March 25th!
