If you want to survive, you have to follow the rules…

Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother's murder. She's been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.

Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She's a piece of work, and Shaun can't decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.

As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.

My Opinion

For a year three different groups have been after Mikayla- the cops want her for murder, the bounty hunters want her for money, and the real killer wants her dead. She realizes that the only way to clear her name is in the cabin where her mother died. The last place she wants to visit. The one place she is almost certain to get caught. Boy does she get caught, not only by a group of bounty hunters but also by the real killers. When the real killers turn up the heat, in the form of bullets she has no choice but to make a run for it with the bounty hunters.

One of these bounty hunters, Patrick has been after Mikayla her whole life. Not really after her, more like after her mom. Ever since her momma died though, he has been after her like white on rice. It is kinda spooky how he knows so much about her. Now she doesn’t only have to worry about him but she has to worry about his partner, Shaun. Shaun is everything sexy wrapped into one nice package.

Shaun is a bounty hunter with a conscience. He realizes there is more to the collection of Mikayla than meets the eye. This of course comes after others try to kill her and him. Hey better late to the party then not arriving at all. Shaun is really a sweet guy although there are moments when I was like Seriously?

Rules of Survival is an thrilling tale of one gal’s fight for well her survival. The odds are stacked against her. Not only must she survival, but she needs to do it with her heart intact.

My Rating 3 out of 5 stars

    1. I was kinda disappointed in it. I had adored Ruined but Rules of Survival just didn't do it for me.
