Rogue -A Deadliest Lies Novel
Trouble was written all over him, from the confident swagger in his stride and seductive curl of his lips, to his smug, knowing looks. Jaxson was irresistible . . .and I fell hard.
Then he was killed.
Now the ruthless, unforgiving boss of an underworld organization thinks I did it.
I’ve gone rogue, hell-bent on...more

Rogue by Michele Mannon is a suspenseful novel that was full of twists and turns. With a strong heroine, Mannon was able to create a story that weaved action, chicanery, deceit and revenge in the backdrops of romance. While the overall story line was intriguing, I felt the first half of the book was a bit slow for my taste and it definitely affected my rating. I liked the concept of the story since it reminded me of Mr. and Mrs. Smith ...more
This book had a lot of potential in the start, but there are things later on that I wish would've just been written better.

Kylie is determined to get revenge for her father's murder so she joins Hayden's group of mercenaries. Another reason she joined with them is because she needs the money to pay for her mother's expensive healthcare cost, due to her cancer. Kylie ...more
The plot in general was good. The ex-spy being a target by her ex-lover. And she trying to complete her mission was cool.
Start ok Kylie spying in some "Pricks" and after she being recruited by TORC she is training and of course there is "hotty" guy and insta-love. Kylie has some smarts comments and she is this good girl who can be a bad girl too.
The romance was ok. Did not felt nothing towards them. What botters me was: why she was recruited?? And the T ...more
*I received this book free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
This is definitely an intense, emotional story. A romantic suspense with several twists and turns and sometimes, a little bit confusing story-line. But, once I got into the writing style of Michelle Mannon, the way she was bringing the story, I was really interested to find out exactly what game was being played and who the major players were.
Kylie did not grab me at all. I was actually starting to get disgusted with her, her attitu ...more
James Bond has nothing on this story of spies, betrayal and love amongst it all.
“Move over, Barnum & Bailey, here comes the Kylie and the Smooth-Talking-Man-Whore show.”
How Kylie and Jaxson come together is a complex, refreshing, twisty tale. It was funny, all kinds of sexy, and full to the brim with action and suspense. Yes, it had it all. In a story that switched from the past to the present, the hero and heroine alternated from devoted lov ...more
There were many things to love about this book:
Amazing location - check - who’d want to be anywhere other than THE city of love Paris. From wandering around the patisseries sampling their melt in the mouth creations to running around in the catacombs, Paris is a great location and we get to experience lots of it
A kick ass heroine - check - never a lover of books where the female is nothing better than a blow up doll anim ...more
I really enjoyed this book! It is really fast paced and original.

Shelby, Oklahoma has been invaded , changed from a small lovely rural town to one with a high crime rate , drugs and driveby shootings. A particular driveby shooting is what drives the main protagonist Kylie, her father was killed while on his front porch leaving behind her sick mother and her and her sister Madelyn and Kylie' ...more
Why? Alpha males in Hayden, Jaxson, Diego, Declan and perhaps McDuff all working for TORC were HOT and then to add in Kylie who gets to train and work with them made it a lot more interesting. The instant attraction felt by Kylie and Jaxon was so much fun to read about as it became more. Jaxson surely did have a way with words!
Kylie was focused on revenge for the murder of her father and because of this she came to the attention of ...more
His advantage is that she thinks he is dead and that he knows her more than any other person. See you always know the person that holds your heart. Now he is hunting his heart, sent by the man that wants her dead.
This book is filled with passion, danger an ...more
Jaxon's character is to die for, he is the best of them (book boyfriend I mean) who will stay with you for weeks! I loved Kylie, she's so sassy and brave, she is a breath of fresh air.
The cover H-O-O-K-E-D me, but the story took a while to reel me in. I'm not usually a fan of insta-love, and this author's style (switching back and forth between locations/time periods for each chapter) didn't set well with me at first...but I'm glad I stuck it out because the plot and charac ...more
ALL MY REVIEWS CAN BE FOUND ON MY BLOG: ABSTRACT BOOKS
'Rogue' is the first book of the 'Deadliest Lies' series by Michele Mannon.
This is the first book I have read by this author and even though the first-half of the book was good , it was the second part that had me feeling bored , hence my low rating. The storyline was ok and I loved the chemistry between Kylie and Jaxson , but it always seemed as if something was missing.
I loved Jason's ruthlessness. The way he went after Kylie to make her ...more
Kylie is one of those strong and hot-tempered heroines who will do anything for her family. Even join a band of mercenaries to get revenge on her father’s death. Her induction into the good-ole-boy club is not an easy one, but one cocky womanizer named Jaxson is willing to help her against his better judgment. However, when things go wrong and she loses him, she goes on ...more
I thought that it was well written with a good natural flow to it and it was packed with action and romance- the plot was great and it kept me hooked through to the last page. It was packed to the gills with testosterone.
The characters were really good and worked well together, I loved the interaction, was great to be able to read a book with such strong and committed characters.
It is 5 stars from me for this one, very highly recommended and a grea ...more
What a fantastically confusing, erotic, hot mess of a story that started off with a bang and just kept going. There’s the past and then the present, and hooking them together to knit the plotline caused some confusion at first, but by the time I got going, the story began to unfold and I couldn’t wait for the next chapter!
Kylie was determined to find the men who’d killed her father and report them to anyone she could get to listen. Homeland S ...more
Man, that Jaxson is one very hot hero. He's beyond sexy and tempting and naughty and of course, I loved all that, but I loved his playful, teasing side even more. Jaxson is the kind of guy who always has a smile on his face, alwa ...more
I honestly wished this book was better than it turned out to be. The blurb sounded amazing, and I was so excited for a mercenary/mob book but it just fell so so flat and become highly confusing.
Firstly the characters were okay in the beginning. I enjoyed their banter and the fierceness of our main female lead, Kylie. In a lot of mob related books the main protagonist is so out of the loop ...more
The characters in this story are top A-Grade choice. Kylie is so kick-ass! Sassy (especially with those t-shirts!) and a smart mouth to boot, yet there is ...more

And they think I killed him.
I'm running rogue.
Hell bent on both revenge and redemption. Whatever it takes, I'm going to finish a job that began nine months ago. An unauthorized assignment that turned horribly, devastatingly wrong. My miscalculation.
My heart left shattered into incomplete pieces which will never wholly fit back together again.
But first I have to outsmart my former organization and the hired killer they've sent after me; a ghost from my past who knows my every move, who’s been inside my head, my heart, my dreams and memories: Jaxson.
I'm the traitor, Kylie. The rogue mercenary, Jaxon's newest assignment. And this is our love story.”
