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?
Warning: 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.
4 " You Matter"Stars
I love Michelle Horst Books, I'm always eagerly awaiting her next release and once again Michelle has delivered another book I couldn't put down.
Mercenary is different from previous books by Michelle, it's quick,hot but still has an alpha hero who has an element of dark mystery.
I love the undertones of a message that run through Michelle Horst's Books like a river until the final waterfall where it all comes together.
Life is a dance between fate and death. In the end, fate prepares us for death, and neither should be seen as the end but rather the continuation of an epic journey to infinity.
Mercenary is told from Mason and Olivia's pov.
Olivia who is complete, loves life, her job working as a nurse with sick children, she lives to work, make a difference, a guardian Angel to the children she cares for until the life as she knows is ripped away by a freak accident leaving her scared & broken inside & out.
I used to live a fairy-tale life but now I've become the beast instead of being a princess.
Mason, mysterious, dark handsome in the eyes of Olivia, the man from 3B who goes out at night, a man she avoids until he forces his way into her life and not only saves himself but Olivia too.
I still see the life fighting to spark in her eyes and so help me God I'm going to make it burn like wildfire again.
A story with an underlying message of finding yourself in the darkest places, sometimes you need to be broken to understand the pain of another.
Mason & Olivia's relationship is hot,passionate and brings healing as they start to heal each other and look forward.
Another brilliant read by Michelle Horst
