Title: Ricochet: Locked & Loaded
Author: Heather C. Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Rick "Ricochet" Brennan served eight years as an elite Marine special ops Force Recon soldier. After an injury, and the terrible memories from that night, he retires and goes to work for his former Command Officer, Howard "Mack" McEvoy, at his training center in Atlanta.
Sanctum MMA appears on the surface to be a normal gym, training elite fighters to be the best. Except each trainer, hand-picked by Mack, possesses a special background that allows Mack to run one of the best-kept secrets in the country.
When twenty-four year old Quinn Wallace finally escapes her abusive husband, she turns to her father’s old Marine Corps buddy, Mack, for help. Broken and skittish, Quinn finds herself surrounded by large, intimidating men— men who could easily overpower her. She avoids them the best she can, but when Rick turns out to be more than just a rough fighter with bruised knuckles, she finds herself wondering if she can allow herself to trust again.
Ricochet is a full-length novel to be released as three parts.
***This book contains hot sweaty men, sexy scenes for those over 18, and uncomfortable, sometimes violent scenes.***
This is the first part of Ricochet that is being released and will have two more parts released in April. This is also the first I have read from author Heather C. Leigh.
In Ricochet: Locked & Loaded we get to meet Quinn and Rick. We get to kind of find out their back stories. We also get acquainted with them. I really enjoyed Rick and Quinn both in this first part.
I really liked Rick. He's sweet and sexy, protective, and a little bit ruff around the edges. He's also has some demons sitting on his shoulders that he's fighting from when he got injured. I loved how he was with Quinn.
I also really liked Quinn. I really felt for her and everything she's been through. But despite everything she's been through she's strong and a fighter.
I would give this first part 4 Out of 5 Stars and would recommend it!!!
