Review of Guts & Glory: Mercy (In the Shadows Security, Book 1) by Jeanne St. James @LWoodsPR


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5

Wow talk about a man who is scary, Alpha, broken, and in need of love! Mercy is a man who is lost, scarred, deep, and in need of a woman who can see beyond all of that. He is ex-military and has the scars, both inside and out from his service. He has found his place outside of the military working with a group of men who were all special forces in different branches of the service, at a security company run by a man who is the sergeant at arms in an MC. The job that Mercy is assigned is not his idea of a fun time, babysitting a rich, spoiled woman who doesn’t know when to shut up.

Parris has to leave Vegas and she is not happy about it. Little does she know that her life is in more danger than she is aware of. Her friendship with a man who owns several casinos could her life to end, especially after what she has witnessed. She is unaware of the danger lurking about Michael, her best friend who has hired an elite security company to get her out of Vegas and keep her safe and alive.

I really like this story and the characters were great. The men on Mercy’s team are a mix of fun, flirtatious, lethal, serious, and very dangerous. I love how Mercy instantly gives Parris a nick name and that she is a therapist. It was such a great twist to the story, but it also made the story better. The ease in which she can talk about her work was great and the reaction from the men on Mercy’s team was perfect. I give this story a 5-star review and highly recommend it to readers who enjoy reading stories about MC’s, ex- military, dangerous, or scarred men finding the love they feel they’ll never find.  Such a sexy cover too! I am so looking forward to Ryder’s story next.
