Choices Are Easy When You Have Nothing Left To Lose
Kennedy O’Connell had all the happiness she’d ever dreamed—until someone stole it away. Now on the run for her life, she has a choice to make—disappear forever or make those responsible pay. Her choice is easy.
Two men want to help her, each with their own agenda.
Detective Nick Gallagher is accustomed to pursuing killers within the law. Targeted for death, his life turned inside out, Nick vows to bring down those responsible, no matter the cost. But the beautiful and innocent Kennedy O’Connell brings out every protective instinct. Putting aside his own need for vengeance, he’ll do whatever is necessary to keep her safe and help her achieve her goals.
Billionaire philanthropist Grey Justice has a mission, too. Dubbed the ‘White Knight’ of those in need of a champion, few people are aware of his dark side. Having seen and experienced injustice—Grey knows its bitter taste. Gaining justice for those who have been wronged is a small price to pay for a man’s humanity.
With the help of a surprising accomplice, the three embark on a dangerous game of cat and mouse. The stage is set, the players are ready…the game is on. But someone is playing with another set of rules and survivors are not an option.
Christy Reece is my auto-buy author so know that upfront. I bought this book on release day, confident I’d love it and she didn’t let me down.
Kennedy O’Connell was living the ideal life. Almost overnight everything fell apart, her life irrevocably changed. As if that’s not awful enough, circumstances dictated that she leave everyone and everything she loved behind and disappear in order to stay alive.
Detective Nick Gallagher, under similar threats, vows to devote his life to making those responsible for almost taking his life pay.
Grey Justice is a billionaire philanthropist who has a secret side where he’s made it his life’s mission to be the champion for justice. The real action begins when the lives of these three converge.
The bottom line
I’m jumping directly to the bottom line because to mention any more details would just ruin this story for others.
Kennedy is a wonderfully crafted character who goes through a few transformations in response to the hands life dealt and comes out formidable. She’s not perfect, just incredibly admirable.
The romance is seamlessly interwoven and the action is perfectly paced. The tension is constant, which had me at times both reluctant to put the book down and unable to continue because I’m a wuss.
Lastly, Grey is an enigma and aptly named as he operates in that “gray” area of the law. I’m left wanting more of this unusual man.
This book is a great start to what promises to be a compelling series.
I also love to talk about books. There’s nothing more exciting than to finish a great story and cover it A to Z with other people, exploring different perspectives and points of view. So, if you see something on my shelf you’d like to talk about, send me a message and we’ll talk!
