Read the final conclusion to the Ricochet Series!
Extraction Point is NOW AVAILABLE!
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-three 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.
I do agree with Sunny. This was a series was one I went thru in only a mater of a couple of days. The books transitioned perfectly into the following book. This is the last book in the series. You must read the first two to know you are knee deep in Rick's hotness.
I can't deny that I do love me some MMA/military guys. Rick takes the cake. Although he was a bit of a manwhore, he will remain a fave of mine.
As for Quinn. I felt for her. For her to remain strong and get through that horrendous marriage was amazing. You really felt the depth of how deeply scared her ex left her.
When her past comes and takes her away from Rick, his only thought was Quinn. He turned out to be a stand up man and would love to have a guy like that.
Love those endings to a series!
My rating for this book is a 4.6. The series went out with a bang. And that is exactly how to write a great novel.
This series was a very quick read and I loved it. I am a big fan of the Alpha that is not too over the top. Rick was definitely an Alpha but he was not annoying and too much. I liked the MMA aspect of this series but I also loved the military ops. I liked Quinn. She fought to get out of a horrible situation. I am not sure that I agreed with some of the things that she did but I can understand why she felt the way that she did. For feeling like I was flying through these books I still felt very connected with the characters. Rick was awesome. Again, not over the top Alpha but still very much an Alpha. He probably needed some anger management but I wouldn't complain about some of his outbursts.
I recommend this series. If you are looking for a quick read that will suck you in from the beginning this is it. You will love the characters and enjoy the drama. I am giving Extraction Point 4.2 stars out of 5. Go get it!!
“Hey,” he said calmly. “Why aren’t you resting?” Rick put his hands on her shoulders, gently massaging her arms.
Quinn’s eyes grew large and went to his gloved hands.
Fuck, she hates fighting. Now I know why she looks freaked out.
Rick yanked his hands away and took a step back. “I didn’t mean for you to see me fight, Quinn. I’m sorry.”
To his surprise, Quinn stepped forward, closing the distance Rick had put between them. He watched as she hesitantly lifted her arms, placing her hands on his sweat-slicked chest. Her eyes met his and his breath left in a sharp huff. The fear he had expected to see wasn’t there. No… Quinn’s eyes were dark and glistening with lust.
“I didn’t know that watching you fight would be so comforting. It makes me feel safe, and… turned on,” she murmured. Rick shivered as her hands ran down his torso, moving over each defined muscle until they were resting on either side of his waist.
“Turned on?” Rick swallowed, barely able to speak with Quinn touching him like that. She was only just about healed from the attack. He figured it would be months, if not longer before she’d be interested in pursuing anything physical.
“Yes, turned on.” Quinn’s fingers dug into Rick’s waist, her thumbs making small circles on the ‘v’ shaped ridges of his lower abs. Scorching waves of pleasure rippled down his spine, instantly making his cock come to life.
“Jesus,” he muttered softly. Using every last bit of willpower he had, Rick captured Quinn’s wrists, removing her hands from his body. “Not here, doll.” He glanced around, but none of the other fighters were looking their way. Still, he’d kill them if they saw the lust in Quinn’s eyes. That was for him, and him alone.
Quinn pouted, crossing her arms and glaring like a kid denied her favorite candy.
He couldn’t help himself. The sight of this tiny thing trying to look intimidating was funny. Rick laughed. “You’re too much, doll.” The corner of her mouth twitched up—it was just a hint of a smile, but it made Rick’s day. Quinn hadn’t smiled once since his team rescued her. Seeing some of her personality coming back flooded him with emotion.
