Review ~ Ricochet: Locked & Loaded (Ricochet #1) by Heather C. Leigh

Ricochet: Locked and Loaded 

(Ricochet, #1)

Heather C. Leigh

Releasing March 30, 2015


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-four 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.

***This book contains hot sweaty men, sexy scenes for those over 18, and uncomfortable, sometimes violent scenes.***

My Thoughts:

This story was about Rick and Quinn. These two characters were kindred spirits as both of them had known plenty of adversity and pain.

Quinn just escaped an abusive husband and is scared of letting anyone get close.

Rick is injured while serving and retires. He doesn't want any relationships.

Though neither one wants to be affected, the are drawn to each other. 

I thought this was well written and paced pretty well but a few areas seemed a little more rushed then the rest of the book.

There was plenty of action, steam, romance, angst and drama in this one. Plenty of sexy men too! ;-)

I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion. This was good and I can't wait to read the next two!
