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.

An action-packed romantic suspense novel…
My rating is really based on personal choice. I liked it but didn’t love it… 😉 I find it just a little too light for my thrill of romantic-suspense novel.
This book has lots of action since they are mostly on the run thorough the entire book. When I say they, meaning the two lead character, Mikayla and Shaun.
Mikayla’s on the run cause she is wanted for her mother’s murder… and Shaun, an apprentice bounty hunter, together with his mentor Patrick. were the first to capture her. For Shaun, it all started with capturing Mikayla, handing her over and getting their bounty… but when men started shooting after them to get to Mikayla, everything’s changed…. now it’s all about protecting Mikayla. While Mikayla really have no choice but to trust Shaun and his help in finding who killed her mom.
All this mystery could have been avoided from the start had her mom told Mikayla everything… OR, all this could have been avoided if they went back to retrieve the letter her mom left for her. But, I guess there wouldn’t be a story if all that happened. In other words, something simple is made complicated.
Mikayla’s character is brave, smart and kick-ass…. And Shaun, well, he sounds hot and promising. Both lead character are equally likeable. I enjoyed their chemistry together.
And I appreciated it that there was none of that “insta-love” happening. Yet!!!! But there is that undeniable attraction. 😉 (Not that I have anything against insta-love.)
It is well written and well delivered…. and there is also that extra twist in the story… BUT BUT BUT, it’s this is just me, I need a little more oomph in my read… so I guess it’s a matter of reference for me. I don’t wanna say predictable, but… I was kinda anticipating that part in the end too. 😛
My first Jus Accardo read and definitely not the last. 😉
