Trusting Nicole (The Last Hangman, MC #4) by Muriel Garcia is the next installment in the Hangman saga. This is Nicole and Jason’s story. Nicole is Gabe and Aleck’s baby sister. She has been going to college out of town but after her being kidnapped along with Vivian and Jason’s wife, Nicole now goes to college in town. Jason is having a hard time after the death of his wife and it seems the only person who is able to get through to him is Nicole. Initially Jason needed to know what had happened before his wife was killed and since Nicole was there she was able to give Jason the information he needed. Then we find out that Nicole and Jason know each other from when she was in college and not only do they know each other but they share a past. Nicole is not as innocent as everyone has believed and her actions from college have followed her to New Orleans. Jason has secrets of his own that we never knew. First of all he is a very troubled and disturbed individual. His parents were killed in front of him when he was four and has lived a life where he has had to do terrible things. To top it all off Jason is really not a cop and he is at a cross road in his life working for the Hangman. He also has to contend with his feeling for Nicole who is 13 years his junior. His past is coming back to cause him trouble as well as Nicole’s since Jason helped cover up what Nicole had done. Jason has to endure a lot to be with Nicole not only does he have to get past her brothers but the President of the Disciples. Jason killed his parents and Nicole killed his brother. Loved the characters, the story and all the different aspects of Jason’s life. He has a very interesting as to how he became who he is today. I give this installment of the Hangman saga 4.5 O’s.

WHAT OTHER PEOPLE THINK:
The Last Hangman MC series has been a real joy for me, I have to admit loving the whole MC vibe and Muriel Garcia rocks it big time.Jason, knocked my socks off, he was a fantastic character and from a series that has been littered with characters that fight to keep your attention on them, that is a complement – he really did absorb me. I was beside him, reaching out through every word and feeling every emotion.
He has had a lot to deal with and this is no different but this time he may just have someone who is willing to share the burden, if he will let them? — Books Laid Bare
Ohhh this book will have you sitting on the edge of your seat swearing at your kindle! Murial left us with one hell of an ending in ‘Healing Gabe’ so i knew this one was going to be a scorcher! I’m not going to give too much away but lets just say that…a lot of the questions that we were left with at the end of ‘Healing Gabe’ will be answered!During the course of this series Ms Garcia’s writing has come on leaps and bounds and i can now confidently say that she’s secured a place in this reviewers favourite author selection! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her, or this series.
The character progression through the series is both natural and endearing. The MC is a family and Ms Garcia makes you feel like you’re a part of that!
Thank you so much! — Belinda Wallis
This book is so full of twists and turns you will get whiplash from it, in a good way! I found myself sitting like a goldfish with my mouth wide open wondering what the hell I had just read!! It sucked me into a tornado of words and spat me out in the end!It honestly blew my mind and my socks clear off. Muriel has grown with her writing with each book she writes, they honestly get better and better.
You will not believe the twist in this story either! I do hope there will be more because if there isn’t I shall be devastated and hard to console. — Roses and Violets Book Reviews
We have great characters who bring there own personalities to the story, I really loved Jason he gave it all and sometimes I wanted to shake him but by the end he captured my heart.We have a great bad boy and kick ass girl which keeps your attention as there from different sides but in away the same but can they be together?
This series gives so much for future books to come and I’ll be waiting for them. — Maddie Bookaholic
WOW this was my absolute favorite book of this series. Don’t get me wrong I loved all the books but that damn Jason took me by surprise. This book gave me everything I wanted and more from an MC book and there was never a time when I got bored or wished that this book was over. Jason was the ultimate bad boy and I was always throw for a loop reading this book. — Reader
This book definitely didn’t disappoint there are lots of twist and turns along the way and secrets to be discovered. Muriel’s characters and her writing just seem to get stronger with each book and I’m looking forward to seeing that continue when we get Bennett’s book next. — Cajun Book Blog
Ok WOW!! This was a story with such twists and turns that I could not wait to see how it turned out and I loved every minute of it. Jason is trying to hide behind so many secrets and identities that even he is lost to who he really is. Nicole is loving and supportive of Jason after the death of his wife and from this friendship more intense feelings grow. There is trouble with the MC and one night changes everything for Nicole and Jason. Can they survive the fallout when secrets and truth are revealed? This was the perfect book with mystery, suspense and spicy sex. Who could ask for anything more? — Page Turners book blog
Book 4 in the Last Hangman series is Jason’s story and it is by far the most twisted of them all up to this point.We’ve seen Jase work side by side with all three MC’s, become a trusted ally, well as much an MC can trust a cop and seen that he’s hiding something.
It all comes out in Trusting Nicole, and we find out Nicole’s secrets as well. — One Click Addicts Book blog

Muriel Garcia was born and raised in Belgium. She started writing a little over a year ago and never thought she would ever publish; reading and writing weren’t her favorite things to do in high school.
After one of her friends gave her a challenge – the next time they would attend a book signing, she would be a signing author (it did happen!) – she started to take writing a lot more seriously and never looked back. She’s enjoyed every second of it and the friends she’s made along the way.
She loves music, tattoos—especially on hot men, traveling, and cooking. She has always had an overly imaginative and creative mind but never thought of putting words to paper. Now she couldn’t imagine not writing stories that are near and dear to her heart.
