A new adult novel from Entangled’s Embrace imprint…
If you want to survive, you have to follow the rules…
Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother’s murder. She’s been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.
Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She’s a piece of work, and Shaun can’t decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.
As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.
I fell in love with Jus when I devoured RUINED and let me tell you…I fell in love all over again with RULES OF SURVIVAL. She has a way of enthralling readers. She keeps them captivated with her story lines and riveting characters.
RULES OF SURVIVAL was full of drama and mystery. I couldn’t put this book down because I just had to know what happened next. It kept me on the edge of my seat with its action-packed scenes. It seemed like when Mikayla and Shaun found one piece to the ever growing puzzle it brought up more and more questions surrounding Mikayla’s, um, predicament. I don’t want to spoil anything for ya’ll, but wow…Mikayla has been through the ringer and her world has been one big pot of craziness since her mother’r murder. Shaun has his own set of demons so together they are hilariously perfect for one another even if they are on different sides of this cat-mouse game.
Mikayla’s character was likable. She has a witty personality mixed with loads of sarcasm so she’s pretty perfect in my book. Shaun is freakin’ sex on legs and his mysterious bounty hunter persona only adds to his sexiness. Both characters, actually every character, in this book were well-developed. The plot is well paced and there is never a dull moment. Between the intense drama scenes and the chemistry between Mikayla and Shaun readers are brought into a whirl-wind of a story. Watching the story play out was pretty awesome. I loved watching Mikayla and Shaun work to figure out the mess her mother left. I loved watching the relationship develop between the main characters. Basically, I loved everything about this book.
It was calculating, mysterious, and at times down right funny. Jus Accardo’s writing style is very unique and so far I have loved everything I have read by her. I look forward to many more amazing stories by Jus Accardo.
