Release Blitz + Review | Mercenary by Michelle Horst


Title: Mercenary
Author: Michelle Horst
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: April 17, 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. ***

This is my first read of Michelle Horsts’ and I must say I am SO intrigued about the rest of her books now. Mercenary is a fairly short, quick read so it felt like a tease! I loved the story and think that ultimately it would make a wonderful full length novel!

“You’ll never cease to exist, Sweetheart. You’re my guardian angel, and without you, my demons will consume me.”

The characters mesh well together, both have dark pasts. I would have liked to get to know Mason a little better. He’s dark and gritty, we know what he does but not much else. I would love to know more about how all of that came about for him.

“Mason is not the monster I once thought he was. Just like me, he’s wounded.”

Liv has demons of her own. She feels ugly and scarred, useless to humanity now. I liked her character too, I felt so connected and sorry for her. I can only imagine how someone would act and feel if they had to go through what she did.

The mysterious, dark, hot neighbor is determined to bring Liv back to life. We’re not meant to be alone but with other people. Together. The two of them combined is hot and dangerous. Out for revenge and lust in the crossfire.
