Over twenty years ago, when she was just a teenager, Belle ran from everything she knew to escape her abusive stepfather. She left behind the boy she loved and a circle of friends who had been like family to her since childhood.
Now, years later, the death of one of her close friends brings her face-to-face with the boy she had to leave. Only now he’s not a boy anymore.
Dylan has never gotten over Belle running away all those years ago. When Nate—one of their Circle of Seven childhood friends—is found dead, Belle and Dylan are drawn back together. It’s not long before he realizes he has a second chance to make her his.
The second reason Belle left could ruin any future she might have with Dylan. The secret hangs over her head while she falls in love with him all over again.
When a dangerous drug cartel starts targeting the Circle of Seven friends, Dylan must use all his federal law enforcement training and contacts to stay one step ahead. He must solve the clues Nate left behind before all of them end up dead.
Okay, let's start with the cover that is for certain to cause widespread covergasm!!! I have a thing for a well-defined arm, and this is just so......ahem....on to the story.
Although No Mercy is the second in the Lawmen series, it can be read as a stand-alone book.
I am addicted to Romantic Suspense, and this book fed my addiction perfectly! Action, mystery, murder, and of course love.
Belle & Dylan's story goes back to their teen years. As a part of the "Circle of Seven" they were not only best of friends but, they became lovers too. Until a family members death, petty jealously, and a misunderstanding sent them on separate paths in life. They come together again years later when a member of the " COS" mysteriously dies. Can they get past all that separated them years ago? Can Dylan discover the truth before it's too late? Will Belle's secret drive them further apart?
Once I picked up the book I could not put it down. This story kept me on the edge of my seat throughout it's entirety. Cheyenne McCray tells a fantastic story, and as always keeps me looking for more.
