The second book in this amazing series picks up six months later with Lily 2.0 out on her own exacting her plan for vengeance after months of training with Kingsley. She's still very much pissed at Marc, can't say I blame her, and out to prove to him and herself that's she can do this.
"Lines had been drawn, boundaries had been established."
Of course, no surprise, Lily and Marc do cross paths as they're on the same mission after all. Lily is not happy to see him ...more
When I start a story, there's a little bubble of hope that my expectations will be met and if I'm really lucky, exceeded. In Out of Plans I got exactly what I hoped for. Lily, Marcelle and Kingsley are back again with an action packed, exciting adventure. It didn't take me long to get settled back into their crazy world and thankfully I didn't need to do a re-read of Best Laid Plans first.
We start the story with Lily tracking down Kingsley who's a l ...more

Kick-ass heroines RULE!!!!
Yes, there will always be those helpless damsels who need rescuing by Prince Charming…and that’s okay with me! But a woman who needs no rescuing or saving and perhaps even rescue the hero….now that’s what I call cool!!!
Liliana aka Lily Brewster, the kick-ass heroine we first met in Best Laid Plans, the 1st book in Stylo Fantome’s fabulous The Mercenaries Series, is back again in the follow up book, Out of Plans. Meaner, tougher and more determined than ever to take ...more
(Arc provided in exchange for an honest review)
DOUBLE the thrill, double the action, and even more heated passion in this second installment of the Mercenaries series. What a crazy ride Lily, Marc and Kingsley gave us, even though this second time around they found themselves all Out Of Plans...
This second book starts after Marc left Lily heart broken by that beautiful yet cruel letter, saying goodbye. She finds herself lost and mad for falling for him. Lily is very strong so she ...more
Out of Plans opens with Lily left alone but being resourceful and motivated as ever to have her vengeance, she is not without a plan for long. With Marc’s good-bye letter taunting her, Lily forges forward and decides find the one man who can help her succeed in her ultimate mission: Kingsley Law. Once Lily locates Kingsley, a feat in itself, he agrees to train and treat her as a fellow mercenary. This time between Lily and Kingsley is vital and it is quite a special time for each character.
Kingsley was absolutely perfection, I seriously fell in love with his fun loving, flirtatious, sexy s ...more
Similar to its predecessor, Out of Plans is still as explosive and suspenseful. The action scenes were top notch and half the time I wonder am I reading a book written by a dude. The attention to details, the underlying sense of danger and the flow of the action are flawless.
Now I would like to review each of the main characters.
Lily - the badass bitch
She seems like a raging bitch for half the book. I understand her rese ...more
4.5 Badass stars
Out of plans is the continuation of Best Laid Plans and Stylo once again surely did not disappoint.
Our heroine, Lily, is hurt and most of all angry at what happened at the ending of BLP. She decides to turn into the British mercenary, Kingsley and she asks for his help. They make a team and he's helping her train for the next six months. They have bonded and he has made her stronger, teaching her everything that could make her plan her revenge, better than th ...more
Lily really came into her own with this one. She was already badass and Kingsley helped to make her even more so. I did want to punch her out for the first 25% of the book or so, but that's only because her thought process with regards to Marc was so freaking irrational. However, I always had mad respect for her. Lily, Marc and Kingsley once again turne ...more
Out of Plans is non stop action from beginning to end. It's intriguing, it's high octane, it's fantastic banter between characters, it's steamy and it's an amazing read!!! I found that I couldn't put the book down.
The story picks up after Best Laid Plans ends. Lily must continue on her journey. But in order to accomplish her goal, she needs help and Kingsley Law is just the man to help. Suave and debonair Kingsley, teaches Lily the skills she needs to finish her journey she ...more
Lines had been drawn, boundaries had been established."
In book 1 we see Lily and Marc thrown together; battling the desert, fighting against time, all in efforts to deliver blood diamonds to the Russians. It's now six months later, and we find Lily seeking revenge. Revenge on the man who hurt her, and revenge towards her s ...more
“You left me! I trusted you and you left me! I believed in you, but you never believed in me. You left me in some country I’d never heard of, with nothing. You just left me.”
What a spectacular thrill-ride this series has been start to finish! For someone who rarely reads Romantic Suspense novels, this story has now turned me into a bona fide aficionado, and this author’s fan for life. Just as action-packed as its prequel, just as brilliantly written and masterfully e ...more
Still: Lily is badass. Marc is just whining baby. And someone should have shot him a hundred pages ago! Just saying. Still loving Kingsley. <3 The Stankovskis were crazy sick!
(view spoiler)[ I half expected Lily's sister to be alive and helping Stankovski. That they somehow faked her death. (hide spoiler)] <-- Sort of.
And the most important? Damiano I looooove him so much! He needs his own book! ASAP!
The second installment in Stylo Fantŏme’s Mercenaries series was just as engaging and action packed as the first. With all the complexities of their personal lives and the difficulties that came with the job that they were all involved in it was easy to get lost in the story.
“Making you better than him will be easy, darling, but better than me? That’s impossible.” - Kingsley
I definitely ...more
Rating : 3 STARS
I started this book with great hopes that this one would actually make up for the first book but unfortunately it didn’t. This one takes place 6 months after the first book. What actually made me want to read this is the BIG CLIFFY that we have in the first one.
What was good: The first thing that I cannot complain about was the level of steam rising from my kindle while I was reading this one. Out Of Plans was HOT, HOT and HOT but not hotter than Best Laid Plans! Then Lily is st ...more
This is a face paced, action packed book from beginning to end. There’s tons of romance as well as chemistry which is always a bonus. Plus add some very interesting and lovable characters, and you get perfection. It truly is impossib ...more
No idea where to start other than to say that I am 100% sad that it is over. I was total enrapt with this series. Marc and Lilliana were two fabulously fun and stubborn characters. They are perfectly imperfect and their romance was just the icing on top this journey of vengeance.
This book is 2 strikingly handsome men who are as lethal as they are sharp tongued. In the middle of them is a feisty woman who has had one hell of a ride through the worst parts of the world. Stol ...more
That was a crazy, wild ride!
I love when an author can make a follow-up book (or in this case a continuation) just as good, or better than the first. There were really no moments in this book where I felt let down or bored ... the whole thing was truly on-point.
I'm really curious about Kingsley and his past ... maybe one day we'll get his whole story - that would be cool.
Together again. Who would've thought.After the shocking ending to Best Laid Plans I didn't think I would see the dynamic trio (view spoiler)[Marc, Lily, & Kingsley (hide spoiler)] together again. I'm so glad I was wrong. Out of Plans picks up where Best Laid Plans left off: Lily hurt, pissed, and out for Marc’s blood.
Seeking revenge on Anatoly Stankovski for the slaying of her sister, Lily sets out to train with the best- the one and only Kingsley Law. The fiery red head has now transfo ...more
“You think I'm some delicate, fragile, little girl wandering around out here. I'm not. I wasn't in Africa, and I'm even less of one now. You need to recognize that.”
“You're delicate to me, and I would die if I broke you."
Lily always has a plan. And she won’t let anything or anyone stop her from her end goal. Especially not sexy mercernary Marc de Sant, who lied to her and left her. Luckily for her, she has someone, a friend of sorts of Marc, who promised that if she needed him, he’d be there....more
I loved the first book and wondered if this one would measure up. Of course it does!
Lily undergoes a bit of a transformation between when we saw her last and who she is now. She was absolutely a lot tougher than I will ever be, but she was no where near able to pull off the task she set out to do. She spends several months doing nothing but training and comes ou ...more
What a thrill ride : The action picks up where it left off at the end of the first book, Best Laid Plans. If you’re reading this review and you haven’t read that one, do me a favor - look it up and read it now, then read reviews for this book. Trust me, you need to start from the beginning to appreciate every bitty exciting, violent, crazy thrill in this book.
For those who did read the first book, you already know that Marc and Lily are apart, and working on their own towards the common goal of ...more
