Mercenary by Michelle Horst
AUTHOR: Michelle Horst
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
RELEASE DATE: April 12th, 2017
I’ve always been a healer, a saver of lives, until the day my life is taken from me. A drunk driver destroyed my life and got away with a slap on the wrist.
Where children used to be happy to see me, they now run from me.
I want him to pay, to suffer just like I’m suffering. I want him dead.
I used to be scared of my neighbor. But since the switch in me is flipped and I’ve become this monster, I’m drawn to him like a moth is drawn to a flame. He’ll burn me - just like the flame will turn the moth into nothing but ashes – and I’m okay with that as long as I get my revenge.
I deal in death. Killer. Assassin. Mercenary. I go by many names.
I miss the smell of baking that used to come from her apartment. I see the hate festering in her eyes, killing the light that shone so bright. It lit the darkness in me.
I used to be a killer until that car hit her. It woke something in me, a need to save her.
How does a wolf save a lamb without the darkness in him devouring the little light that’s left in her? Warning:This is an over the top, insta-love, hot as hell HEA with a twist of kinkiness. HEA are always more satisfying when the characters have to fight for it. If you're looking for a jaw-dropping, panty-melting page turner then jump right in. This is a Standalone Novella with NO cheating.
When I started this I was hooked, it flowed freely, I connected with the storyline and the characters as I moved through the book the only thing I wished for more was more background data on Mason, his character really intrigued me so I kind of wished the story delved more into his history. But overall this as per usual by this author was a great hot little number.
MERCENARY: Beautiful, vibrant happy go lucky Olivia who's living her dream job working as a Paediatric nurse, has always noticed the mysterious dark, broody man Mason Crowe in apartment 3C adjacent from hers but she tries to avoid him at all costs as he gives off a dangerous vibe which unnerves her.
In a blink of an eye Olivia’s world changes from living in the light to hiding in darkness where no one can see her.
Looking in the mirror she doesn’t recognise the scarred, damaged, ugly person staring back at her.
I used to live a fairytale but now I've become the beast instead of being the princess.
Mason is a bit of an enigma, he kills without remorse to those deserving souls on his retribution list he gathered whilst working within the Social Services sector.
I don't take pleasure in taking someone's life but I do take comfort in the fact that the world is rid of one less monster.
This is an insta-love quick read that will definitely leave you gasping for more. If you're after a panty wet HEA with no cheating then this story is right up your alley. Definitely a #0ne click come release day!! Usually I steer clear of Insta-love books but this author is one of my all time favourites and it was written in such a way that it really didn't come across as insta-love for me it was more of a slow burn love that progressed into more as they got to know each other.
