I started reading this book totally unprepared and what a great surprise.
This book was so well written and uncomplicated, this story was amazing, maybe some lies.
It’s worth the reading.

A good fantasy romance. When Alex and Rafe met they had no clue how important the other would become in their lives. Follow their journey here in this book.

When Izzy becomes involved in their lives they once again take a dramatic turn and she becomes the very reason they do what they do. A pact that could cost either one their own lives at any moment.
Excitement, anxiety, loyalty, love, honor, friendship, and hatred all live in the pages of this book.

I received this ARC in exchange for an honest

Another great book by Leslie!! It was A very intense book, I cried and once I started reading this book I couldn’t put it down. Rafe and Isabella just had to make it out of under their father’s business alive and also his friend Alex. With all of the problems that they had going on it just didn’t seem possible but they prevailed and the ending was so worth it. Can’t wait for Rafe’s story next! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time I was reading this book routing for them.

This is an intriguing, on-the-edge-of-your-seat romance that I couldn't put down. As each chapter ended, I was compelled to continue to the next. The plot is exciting and uncertain, and luckily, it has a clear and complete ending.

Mostly, this was very well executed. My problem was with characters and dialogue. There was a lot of internal debate on the parts of Alex and Isabella as the narration switched from one POV to the next. There was too much reflection on the sizzling chemistry between

This was a great start to the series. This had you from the start, made you want to finish to see what was next. It was well thought out and written. The characters were great. It had you feeling what the characters did. It was about family blood and not, friendship, bonds, righting wrongs. It had some twists and turns, it was fast paced. It had you rooting for the Mocking Man, hoping for Alex, falling for Isabella. The story unfolds beautifully, reads smooth and has you thinking about it for ...more

This is book one the The Pact Duet. Two friends and one pact. Meet Rafe, his sister - Isabella and Alex. This story is told in Alex's POV and what an amazing read it is.

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. I really loved the Dregs series, so moving onto to something new was hard for me but I tried to keep an open mind. "The Mocking Man" was a bit hard for me to follow at first, but once I gave it a chance and let myself be lost into the world of crime and mystery, I enjoyed it. I loved the fierce bond of brothers and respect showed to women. I liked that our heroine was strong and sassy and had no trouble giving people a piece of her ...more

The Mocking Man is the first book in The Pact duet and is Alex's story.

This romantic suspense story has well-developed characters that are strong, intelligent, and have amazing chemistry together. The storyline is well written and intriguing, with a boyhood pact, kidnapping, human trafficking, family issues, danger, suspense, twists and turns, and a chance for romance.

I cannot wait to read Rafe's story next.
I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

Great story line. Alex and Rafael become friends after Rafael and his mother move in the neighborhood. Rafael's father is the head of a drug cartel and he captures him. Alex goes looking to rescue Rafael. Alex has to stay hidden from the cartel and Rafael has to do his father's bidding. Miguel Alvarez is the head of the cartel and finds out he has a daughter. I could not put this novel down as it captured my attention from the start. A page turner and a thriller.

The Mocking Man is the first book in Leslie Georgeson’s The Pact series and sets a fast and intriguing pace from the beginning to end. This story is packed with amazing characters, and the storyline is an edge-of-your-seat, can’t put down romance that keeps you riveted till the last page is turned. A thoroughly enjoyable book that whets the appetite for more to come.

This book was fabulous! I had a joy, heartache, fear, and happiness all through this book! Izzy is nosy and can't keep from getting her butt in trouble. Rafe is an unknown until Izzy found out. Then, there is our man, Alex. Dang! I want him. An man of many mysteries. Perfect men rolled into one. Mystery and romance are a plus and this is a definite plus! Read it!
