My Review:
X is a hit man for the motorcycle club royal blood. Just like it says in the synopsis if you come into contact with him, odds are you’re never going to be seen again. He’s ruthless and unfeeling. Nothing seems to faze him no matter what the circumstances are. That is until he meets Mercy Reid. Mercy is running from something, she has started a new job in a biker club and no one seems to pry too much as long as she does what she is told. She thinks she has hidden in the perfect place until X walks in the door.

Both X and Mercy try to fight their attraction, but once it becomes too much they give in thinking that one night will take the edge off. However, this is only the beginning of their time together. X is working on a hit. One that he is having to hunt down, so when his employer sees him sniffing around Mercy too much he decides to send a message. Leaving Mercy realizing she’s walked out of a dangerous situation right into another one. And Mercy, is doing things to X, things he doesn’t exactly understand, and he fights them as much as possible but in the end, Mercy may be the only one on his side after all.

I loved this freaking book. It wasn’t overly long, so it was pretty easy to fit in between longer reads. But what really drags you in is the intensity of X. You almost want to hug him at certain times, but are actually too afraid to get that close, lol. He has so many struggles once he meets Mercy. He sort of just lived his life doing what he knows and not letting anyone get close. But she seems to unlock him, and sends him spiraling. And Mercy, well she has her own set of problems. She’s in hiding, she just didn’t know that who she was hiding from was so close. And the danger she was running from was nothing compared to what she gets into.

My Rating:
