Ricochet: Friendly Fire {Book Review}

Title: Ricochet: Friendly Fire

Author: Heather C. Leigh

Book Description

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-three 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. Friendly Fire is part 2.

My Review:

    The start of Ricochet: Friendly Fire pretty much starts off where the first part left off with the cliffhanger. Except for a month later, where we find Quinn trying to finish up her affairs with her fathers house.

    I really felt like for that month that Quinn had been gone that she really seemed to have a change. She seemed a little different. A little stronger and a little more independent. She seemed to find herself once again. 

    It was nice to see her really wanting to give Rick a chance. I mean because who wouldn't love Rick?!?!? But it was nice to watch her, hmmmm what's the word I'm looking for? Maybe come into herself and really show Rick she really did care about him. 

    It was also nice to see her open up and be friendly with the other guys.

    Oh gosh what can I say about Rick in this second part. I don't want to say he was a jerk. But he kind of was to Quinn. He avoided her, wouldn't talk to her, and wouldn't let her explain to him. But than he would turn around and have his buddies ask Quinn how she was doing. So you could tell he still cared about her even though he acted differently. Also he's keeping the secret of what really happened to him from her. 

     I enjoyed this second part and of course enjoyed Quinn and Rick again. Once again this one ends on a cliffhanger. 

     I'm giving this part another 4 Out of 5 Stars.
