Publisher Description

Sometimes in life, choices just aren't part of the plan. When fate interferes and bulldozes right over you.

That's how I felt the first time I saw him. Standing in my kitchen, soaking wet, hotter than a man has the right to be, and holding a knife.

Declan's cold, stone-cold. I can't help but want him. His presence stirs up some raw emotion within me. He seems so...alone. But is he here to kill me or save me?

He's the one man I should never want...and the one I can never forget.

intrique, action and danger

I was provided a copy of Mercenary via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. First off I didn’t realize this was book 2 in a series when I requested it. We are given enough backstory that I wasn’t lost. But reading the blurb on book one Rogue, I just felt that I was missing a lot of backstory that I needed for the underlying story in Mercenary. However, by reading Mercenary first, I am pretty sure the plot is blown for Rouge. I am still going to go back and read it.

There are several things about this story that are so clichéd that I had a hard time getting into it. Virgin heroin that falls madly in “lust/love” with our “hero” from his first kiss is one of them. Madelyn is depicted as a smoking hot smart girl; nerd or not she would not be heading off to college and just experiencing her first kiss. Then there is Declan who is a jackass to Madelyn so other than he is hot I don’t understand his appeal. But she is so naïve that she is convinced that she can bring out the better man. She was being treated like crap and played from so many angles yet kept acting like everything would be alright.

Declan is trying to Flush out Madelyn’s sister who betrayed his company and using Madelyn as bait, really great guy! And when I say company I mean covert company of Mercenaries. The complete story of the sister’s betrayal, I assume happened in book one and we only get pieces of what happened in book 2.

There is intrigue, action, danger, sex, and a boss who I’m not quite sure isn’t a bad guy. I do know that this is a series I want to explore more and will be going back and reading book one....Sara

Good read

I honestly have very mixed feelings on this one. I found the story a bit strange and it seemed to jump around a lot. I couldn't really tell at first if Declan was a good guy or not, but I guess that was the author's intent. Still, just left me shaking my head and going back to reread parts because I thought I missed something. Even with the confusion, the story hooked me and I felt compelled to keep reading. It was like I had to figure out what was going on. Why was Declan protecting her, why was she running?? None of this is answered until almost the end of the book so the author accomplished the goal of sucking me in and keeping me reading. In the end though, the story didn't leave a big impression on me. So this ended up being just an okay read for me.
