⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
A night out on the town with her best friend turns into a nightmare for Marleigh and Ellie. Marleigh wants to be strong, but the circumstances surrounding her make it hard. Ellie is the strong one this time. While Marleigh finds her way free, she won’t rest until she can find Ellie and make sure that she is free too. The trouble is that it’s taking too long to find her and after two years, Marleigh is getting tired and frustrated. She’s put herself in a dangerous position, and when Machete offers to help her, she’s not sure she can trust him, it’s been too long since she’s had anyone she could trust.
Machete and his brothers have been looking for those in the skin trade and have a lead. When they walk into the Russian owned night club looking for information, they aren’t there very long before they’re escorted to the owner’s office. Andrei Petrov is only the tip of the iceberg that the RBMC will have to deal with. When the Liverpool Chapter calls the National Chapter and speaks with Jameson, they find out that they aren’t the only ones dealing with ridding their city of these bottom feeders.
I love the RBMC books and all of the chapter’s interconnect, but carry their own stories, characters, and dangers. I love the characters and the stories in this chapter as much as I do the other chapters. Machete and Marleigh have to learn to trust and lean on each other if they are going to come out on top and Machete knows that he will do anything to help Marleigh as well as protect her. I would suggest that reading the books in order will be beneficial as the stories interconnect and are easier to follow after reading the prior book. I give this book a 4-star review and look forward to more RBMC books to come.
