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.
She did it again, loves!
If you read my preview reviews on Jus Accardo's writing you probably alreadybfigure out I fangirl BIg time over her. I love anything she writes and Rules of Survival is no exception.
Rules of Survival is the perfect combination of suspense, action, witty comments and raw feelings.
Makayla Morgan has been on the run for a year now after beign acused of murdering her own mother, but in truth, she's beign running her whole life. All she's used to it is to blend in, to never trust anyone and to use her brain to get her out of difficult times.
But Kayla had to go back to the place her mom died to try to figure out what and who she's running from. And that's where we first find her.
Patrick Tanner is a bounty hunter. He's been after the Morgan girl all his life and this time he has a little help to capture Kayla. Meet Shaun Denver. Hot, smart, witty, tattoed (we all love some inked guys) and absolutely infuriating.
Where Kayla is the kind of person who needs a plan to feel secure and know where she's going, Shaun is the type who jumps into the situations and goes with it. Kayla is the brains, she's not a fighter AT ALL but she can deliver some serious BS to get her out of trouble. Shaun on the hand will use those pretty muscles without a second thought.
What I loved most about this book is how Jus managed to keep the suspence, giving us little pieces of information at sthe time to keep the story going but still being able to surprise you with the final outcome.
The characters feel real. Both have past that haunts them in their own way and things they aren't ready to face. Jus managed to make them Bad-Ass and vulnerable at the same time.
And of course the fact that (like any of her books) Jus just throws you into the story in the first page. It manges to capture and hold you in until the last page and then, it leaves you wanting more. She presents the story in a easy short way and continues with an opening act full of action and just goes from there.
Rules of Survival is an intense read you don't wanna miss!
