Release Blitz & Book Review: Mercenary by Michelle Horst

by Michelle Horst
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 17th, 2017



I’ve always been a healer, a saver of lives, until the day my life is taken from me. A drunk driver destroyed my life and got away with a slap on the wrist.

Where children used to be happy to see me, they now run from me.

I want him to pay, to suffer just like I’m suffering. I want him dead.

I used to be scared of my neighbor. But since the switch in me is flipped and I’ve become this monster, I’m drawn to him like a moth is drawn to a flame. He’ll burn me - just like the flame will turn the moth into nothing but ashes – and I’m okay with that as long as I get my revenge.


I deal in death. Killer. Assassin. Mercenary. I go by many names.

I miss the smell of baking that used to come from her apartment. I see the hate festering in her eyes, killing the light that shone so bright. It lit the darkness in me.

I used to be a killer until that car hit her. It woke something in me, a need to save her.

How does a wolf save a lamb without the darkness in him devouring the little light that’s left in her?

*** This is an over the top, insta-love, hot as hell HEA with a twist of kinkiness. HEA are always more satisfying when the characters have to fight for it. If you're looking for a jaw-dropping, panty-melting page turner then jump right in. This is a Standalone Novella with NO cheating. ***

My review:

This was such a great novella! I didn't know how many pages this book was going to have but man, it was a quick, short and really good read.

The Story:
Olivia works in the hospital and even though she works with terminally ill children, it's something she has always wanted to do.

When one fateful moment changes everything for Olivia, Mason, her seemingly dark and dangerous neighbor, is the only one who understands her.
Because it takes a monster to see a monster.

I loved the beginning because it held something mysterious and I immediately felt the spark between the characters. Later on though, I missed the connection between them and even though the sex scenes were hot, it felt kind of distant and short.

Nonetheless, this was a well written story and I didn't mind the insta-love, even though it didn't really feel like ‘insta-love’ for me since they didn't meet for the first time. It felt more like they unknowingly liked each other already and this bonding situation brought out their hidden feelings. =P

It's hard for novellas to touch my heart because it takes some time to get close to the characters and there just isn't time with a short story. I still liked the characters and I think it's sad that there wasn't more of their Story.

-- I received an ARC of this book from Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. --

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
