(A standalone within a series)
Publication Date: March 23, 2021
Genre/Tropes: Suspense/Hero Contemporary
Author: Melissa Ellen
Fast paced, lots of tension and suspense, with tons of chemistry!
This is my first Melissa Ellen book and I look forward to reading more in the future.
Merrick is a paid mercenary with mad skills not only as a sniper, but also as a hacker. As a hired hitman his special skill set comes in handy working alone, especially since he works on the opposite side of the law. He’s used to being alone, but when he meets Alley Rhodes and discovers she is a woman who dedicates her life to fighting justice and stays firmly in the lines of black and white, he is already gone for the woman regardless of what she does and saving her when she steps in the line of fire will become his salvation.
Salvation is hot, has a quickly paced plot with action and witty banter. Their good cop/bad cop duo when they are out finding clues is a ton of fun to read. Merrick knows how to turn up the heat, whether it’s using his special skills in or out of the bedroom, and Alley knows how to keep him in line. I loved it.
She is the key to my salvation.
The end to my freedom.
Not much gets past Special Agent Alley Rhodes, but there’s one case she hasn’t solved: the murder of her father. The decade-old cold case drives her to be the best at her job. She was told that he’d died in the line of duty during a convenience store robbery gone bad, but when she discovers a mysterious package on her doorstep with evidence proving otherwise, she’s left with more questions than answers. Needing one night of escape, she uncharacteristically opens up to a handsome stranger in a bar, a choice that could turn into a deadly mistake.
