“Bad things happen. And the human brain is especially adept at making sure that we keep track of these events. This is an adaptive mechanism important for survival. ~ David Perlmutter

And survival is important to having a purpose in life. A lucky chance that gives birth to a crusade against evil living amongst humanity.  Fear is “Merciless”. But with courage, determination and motivation, one can laugh at the very face of fear. Who better is privileged to this fact than Asher Drake and Juliet Stone

Asher Drake: The man was a demon in some people’s eyes, but in others he was a hero.

Juliet Stone: She was no neophyte. She was a professional and knew how to play the game. She had secrets.

And both would go beyond their endurance to mete out justice and protect their own.

Merciless-OptionZero#1-Feb2020

Christy Reece’s new series, Option Zero, introduces the “Merciless” players, bonded over death, bravery and survival. A life of pain and loss, betrayal and treachery, brotherly bond, love and loyalty created these warriors. As they put their lives between the innocent and evil, fighting for justice fo the innocent with zero option, they still get lucky in love as they tread a merciless path to justice.

A resounding start to a new series, Christy Reece shows her mastery of plotting a story that keeps the readers spellbinding. Unlike her other series with so much action (which totally is enthralling), I love the fact that she had paced her story so very well as she draws the characters out of their shell. There is sublime action in the background, with emotions and characterization taking precedence, yet none of it taking away the intensity of the plot. As she introduces the players, the story still revolves around Asher Drake and Jules Stone. As she sets the stage for the main plot to continue into future stories, she never loses sight of the significant flow of events surrounding Ash and Jules. Even her choice of names has a subtle symbolism adding an element of aura to the story.

Having read every single book of hers published thus far, there are so many subtle nuances that only made Christy’s narration so much more intriguing, the twists and surprises added flavor and spice to the plot, and the characterization and depth of the plot added layers of masterful imagination!

I cannot wait to follow these “Merciless” warriors on their trials and tribulations and to a path of love and justice.

Disclosure: Sharing from Cynthia Eden’s newsletter received via email……check her out at cynthiaedem.com, and follow her on social media….

And if you haven’t read any of her books, you are sadly missing an amazing author with an equally amazing line of stories!!!!

CROSSING THE LINE will be here in March! (P.S. Linc and Blair will also make an appearance in Ghost’s book—and that one, GHOST OF A CHANCE, will be available in January—so soon!)

Here’s the blurb for CROSSING THE LINE:

CrossingTheLine-WildeWays#7-CynthiaEden-Jan2020

Partners…with benefits.

Your partner knows your secrets. Your partner watches your back. Your partner…is the star of your fantasies?

Linc Dalton knows that he is supposed to keep his hands off his partner…well, unless he is protecting Blair Kincaid’s gorgeous body. She’s his partner at the elite protection firm of Wilde Securities. Their job is to guard the wealthy, to take out the bad guys, and to generally kick butt. He trusts Blair completely. He admires her strength and courage. And he wants her desperately. Not that he ever intends to let her know that fun fact. Instead, he keeps up a fake persona where he offers her jokes and flippant comments.

Blair is straight-laced. By-the-book. Always by-the-book. Linc likes things a bit wilder. Control isn’t his strong suit, but, with a massive effort, he’s kept his control in place around Blair. With Blair, he’s on his best behavior…

Until he isn’t. Until they get a new case. Until they have to go undercover as lovers.

And, suddenly, Linc has to put his hands on Blair’s delectable form. He has to stay very close to her. Has to whisper sweet promises to her. Has to share the same bed with Blair. It’s just a cover story. He’s not really in love with her…except, one night, they cross the line. Stop being pretend lovers and become the real thing. Once Linc has Blair, there is no turning back. Giving her up isn’t an option.

She broke the rules, and for once, Blair doesn’t care.

She shouldn’t have done it. Blair knows she shouldn’t have let the desire she feels for Linc sweep her away. Yet she did, and now, everything has changed. She wants him more than ever before, and, surely, they can do this, right? They can be lovers and partners and still get the job done. As long as emotions don’t get involved, everything is fine.

Until it isn’t. Until Blair and Linc are targeted as prey. Until all of their emotions are out of control.

When their cover is blown, Blair and Linc find themselves being hunted. It’s a race for survival, and Blair knows that Linc has her back. Just as she has his. Prepare yourself…things are about to get wild.

The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been, and Linc and Blair are about to turn things red-hot. Molten level. Watch out…you just might get burned.

Author’s Note: These partners have been on a slow-burn path, but their desire is about to ignite into an inferno they can’t control. You ready to steam up the pages? We’ve got action, thrills, romance…and a hero who is funny, sexy, and willing to do anything to claim his lady. CROSSING THE LINE is a complete, stand-alone novel. Guaranteed happily-ever-after (though reaching that ending will sure be fun…and a wee bit dangerous). Enjoy!

The Sutton Capital series by Lori Ryan is one of my all time favorites, that gets a visit from me time and again. 

AccordingToPlan-SuttonCapitalSeries-LoriRyan-Dec2019

Kaeden O’Shea learns very quickly that nothing ever goes “According To Plan” when dealing with Joy Wilson. Spunky, friendly and sassy to the boot, Joy would like to stay away from Kaeden but then the laws of attraction take her straight to him. And Kaeden’s plan of enjoying her company for a short goes through the roof.

Joy’s got secrets to hide, and Kaeden’s got the muscle and patience to support and keep her safe. And the readers get to read another wonderful romance by Lori Ryan.
