4.62  ·  Rating details ·  29 ratings  ·  22 reviews

Our sins are written in blood, and only blood can atone for what weve done.

Retribution comes in unexpected forms. Mine has amber eyes. Golden hair. A smile that could kill. She was mine the minute I dragged her down to hell, and now were both paying the price.

I tried to save her and failed.


Rumors call him the Morning Star. My father only called him the devil.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 STARS

I'm loving all of the characters in the Broken Mercenaries Series! They are all diverse in their personalities but they all fit somehow. Dalton and Grace have this sort of love to hate type of relationship that just works. Love. It. I'm enjoying the way the author has the main story and how it's filled with high energy and suspense, but also keeping us intrigued with a deeper story that involves all of the Broken Mercenaries.

I highly recommend reading this EPIC book and be sure to

S. Massery is a brilliant author, who gifts us with amazing action packed, hot as hell stories!

Going in I knew that I was going to love this book. I have been patiently (sort of) waiting for Daltons story.

Dalton is the silent but deadly man in the room. With all of his training he is ready for anything, except for the one thing. Love.

Grace, is absolutely my favorite heroine!!! Her strength, beauty, and rebound is remarkable.

Bring these two characters together and not only do you have an off

This story... Wow!
I am left with a book hangover.
I love this story so much!
This entire series is incredible!
With each page, this story has you on the edge of your seat.
There's so much I want to say but I will not give spoilers.
So, I'll say this... The tension, the action, the surprises... I highly recommend this series and this book. S.Massery is truly amazing.

Oh my goodness! Morning Star was fantastic! I could not put this book down. I read this book in a day or so, but I would have had it done sooner if I didnt have to adult. S. Massery brings us back to the mafia world in a different state and a different mafia family! There was action, suspense, and hot romance! Honestly, I could read about Dalton and Grace all day, every day. Dalton is such a fascinating character and I feel like so many of my questions about him were answered in Morning Star.

This is another great book in the series and I love it!

Grace was a little different from our other characters as she really had no idea how much her character was in danger and why. She still believed that her dad had so much power and could protect her. I loved that she was independent and wanted nothing to do with her dads lifestyle at all. Yet she found herself being controlled by Javier and Marco with what they wanted for her future.

Dalton was such an awesome character and I loved how he

Grace Jones is the daughter of Sal, a mob enforcer who works for Javier Argento but when she is almost sold into human trafficking she is saved by a mysterious man. Now she finds herself going to be married off to Javiers son, Marco, a man she hates more than anything.
Dalton Kavanaugh was once a member of Scorpion Industries but after he rescues Grace he leaves town knowing the mob will put a hit on him for ruining their plans. Yet there is something about Grace that Dalton cant stay away from

This is the third book in the Broken Mercenaries series and I would guess that there will be at least 5 books (maybe 6) in the series each featuring one of the guys introduced in the first books. I was drawn in from the start and the fast-paced action and suspense elements kept me turning the pages.

This is an amazing addition to the series and although I would definitely say this could be read as a stand-alone as this focuses on a new couple, of course it would be best to read in order to not

My man

S. Massery brings us another delicious book of deceit and sabotage, with a whole lot of angst and WTF moments.

Grace is the daughter of a mob boss enforcer, and she is put in a no-win situation. Along comes Dalton to save her... or does he just complicate matters and make everything more difficult?

S. Massery is a master of the bad boy/pain in the ass kind of asshole, and I love every second of it.

I have to admit though, I wanted Dalton to get his head back in the game, because he was

This is the book I've been waiting for. I've been wanting Dalton's book since Blood Sky released and S Massery knocked it out of the park.

Morning Star is a tantalizing page turner. I loved Dalton even more after reading Morning Star. And Grace, I freaking love her! She's so perfect for Dalton.

First, have you met Dalton Kavanaugh????? He is an A$$hole with a capital A. But he the type of character that even when he is a supporting character you can't help but love. After reading Blood Sky and Angel of Death I have been anxiously awaiting Dalton's story. S. Massery blew this one out of the water. Talk about a home run here.

Dalton may be an a$$hole, but he has more than met his match with Grace. She puts him in his place on more than one occasion. Grace is just as amazing of a character

This series!! Gah!! S. Massery is just killing this mafia romance storyline. But, by far Dalton and Grace have been my favorite. Its this hate/love romance. Its so firey and pulse pounding!!

Dalton has been so brutey and dominant. I was excited to finally get his story! His storyline filled in so well and just made him my favorite hero in this series. Grace is so broken but strong. Together they created this heated romance that tore thru the pages!

Shew! Talk about a roller coaster! I was first introduced to Ms. Massery's writing when I downloaded Blood Sky and I knew then that I was going to be invested in this series.

I was sucked into Dalton and Grace's story and the ride was intense! I'm ready for more in this series.

Wow! Dalton and Grace's story will send you on a whirlwind ride you don't want to get off of. Morning Star is an action packed adventure, murder, suspense and betrayal. Their story will suck you in.
Grace and Dalton were made for each other. Always butting heads. Sexual tension.
Grace is running from her forced fiancee. Marco wants power and to break Grace.
Morning Star saves her more than once. Together they are on a dangerous journey that could cost Dalton his life.
Jan 10, 2020 rated it it was amazing
I loved the story of Dalton and how he meets Grace. They both are very hard headed and don't like to back down from a fight, so the two of them together can cause a lot of irritation and confrontation amongst each other and other people. But don't let that full you because there is a lot of sexual tension between the two of them as well that makes for a great book.

Just perfect! The combination of heart pounding suspense, passion and humor made this a perfect book! I so loved seeing the push and pull of Dalton and Grace! They are perfect for one another! And talk about a surprises that come along on their journey! Awesome job!!

I love the boys in this series. Each book can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading the series from book 1. It gives you a little more understanding of each character. Dalton is such a douche but I love it. Dalton and Grace are so good together. You will devour the book as I did because the author keeps you on the edge of your seat with all the suspense and action. Im looking forward to what S. Massery has in store for us with the Broken Mercenaries Series. ...more
