Where children used to be happy to see me, they now run from me.
I want him to pay, to suffer just like I’m suffering. I want him dead.
I used to be scared of my neighbor. But since the switch in me is fl ...more
When I started this I was hooked, it flowed freely, I connected with the storyline and the characters as I moved through the book the only thing I wished for more was more background data on Mason, his character really intrigued me so I kind of wished the story delved more into his history. But overall this as per usual by this author was a great hot little number.

The one thing that was going through my head while reading this book was "should've checked should've checked should've checked the goddamn fucking blurb before I went ahead and ordered the ARC!"
I'm so fucking lazy, that I never even read the "over the top insta-love" warning at the end of the blurb, and for that I cannot even blame the author. In her defense she did mention it.
So it is just what it says, "over the top insta love", and we all know how much I fucking hate any kind of insta ...more
COVER REVEAL COMING APRIL 7TH. I'll save my thoughts until then.
What can I say about this one? I simply loved it. It was a super short novella. It was pretty much insta-lust. It was well written and nicely paced. It had two enjoyable main characters. It had some hot sex scenes. All wrapped up with two epilogues.
ALMOST perfect. Due to its short nature, you don't get a ton of character development. I would have liked to read more background on both Liv and Mason (especially.) I also would have l ...more
Wow. This novella is short, sweet and so damn sexy. I didn't know what to expect but the title had me wondering and gave me a little clue. But it's so different from what I expected. It's a tad bit darker and a whole lot more intense. It's not the kind of thing I can explain, it's something you need to experience for yourself. It'll consume you, just like it did me. I couldn't put it down and I finished it in one sitting. It's angsty as hell, but the love & the fall is amazing. It' ...more
I love a story that takes the ‘norms’ (whatever those really are) and twists them about. The fallout is usually spectacular and, if nothing else, makes for a riveting read. In this case, it all happens!
Liv and Mason are definitely on different life tracks. One saves lives while another takes it away. What happens though when the tables are turned? A life-changing event influences both in ways neither could ever have predicted…
“Mason is not the monster I once thought he wa ...more
I've read a couple of other books by Michelle Horst, and I know for sure that she can write a full length novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat. After reading Mercenary I can safely say that she can pack all that same awesomeness into a novella.
Olivia is a nurse who works with sick children. She lives in an apartment complex, and has a dark and mysterious neighbor named Mason who she avoids like the plague. I mean, he's kind of scary.
That is until tragedy strikes, and so much cha ...more
***** 4.5 Cranky Stars *****
This is one quickie you won't be disappointed with. This book gives you such hope and love.

Mason was a man living in the shadows. He seeks vengeance to help others who no longer have a voice. One day his life changes.
These two have always lived next door to each other yet never truly seen each other. They become unlikely allies and well the rest is histo ...more
A new short novella by Michelle Horst, I read in an hour, but I personally felt Mercenary could have been a a little bit longer in length. I think the jump to 6 months quite near the beginning could have been drawn out, with more explanation. Michelle writes amazing dark books, and given the main male characters profession, this could have been explored more.
It's a good book, not a dark read, but it's not hearts and flowers either.
They say great things come in small packages and this book proved the point.....the main characters recounted the story and I found myself both absorbed in ...more
I love Michelle Horst Books, I'm always eagerly awaiting her next release and once again Michelle has delivered another book I couldn't put down.
Mercenary is different from previous books by Michelle, it's quick,hot but still has an alpha hero who has an element of dark mystery.
I love the undertones of a message that run through Michelle Horst's Books like a river until the final waterfall where it all comes together.
Life is a dance between fate and death. In the end, fate ...more
You only have to say Mercenary, Assassin, Hitman, Killer or anything along that profession as long as it involves killing and you get my full and undivided attention.
It's why this book has gotten my attention in the first place.
But, this fell short in my expectations. I couldn't get a lot of things and some just left a meh feeling for me.
Mason was supposed to be a Mercenary. And I thought he would really be, but he's just a vigilante with a hero complex. He said that working in social ser

There's something terrifying about him. Maybe it's the dead look in his eyes. I heard that a person who has nothing to live for has nothing to lose and that makes them dangerous.

Michelle Horst is a very good author. Her writing grabs you and pulls you in. She describes the scenes very well, making you feel like you are right there, and her story was very interesting.
