Rules of Survival

Rules of Survival - Jus Accardo The real blurb
If you want to survive, you have to follow the rules…

Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother's murder. She's been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.

Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She's a piece of work, and Shaun can't decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.

As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.

My blurb
Mikayla, the girl who has been on run for the last 18 years
of her (18 year old) life, returns to the cabin where her mother was murdered; the murder for which she is a suspect. She carelessly enters the crime scene and is caught by bounty hunters. Shaun , the "hot" hunter ( because what else could he be?? ), shackles her to himself when they are attacked by some unknown people. The couple is then on the run. They try to find the guy who killed Mikayla's mother at the same time trying to learn about the said mother's past...

My thoughts
I was expecting a fast paced thriller with a nice amount of romance thrown in it. To say that I was disappointed would be an understatement.


Mikayla has been on run since she was born but still she makes a stupid mistake and gets caught. I know it was her first mistake and I should cut her some slack but I won't *stubborn me crossing my arms*. She is always like mum would have been so disappointed in me because she is always breaking some of her mother's precious rules . OMG! If you are so worried about the darn rules then don't break them. And then there is the thing where she thinks herself SO smart but is always making some stupid mistake.
There was no suspense. I do not consider a book good when you can see the end coming from the first 15 pages or so. The moment Mikayla read her mother's letter, I knew who her father was.
I like a good looking hero as much as the next person. But does the author really had to emphasize Shaun's handsome face like 30 times.


I wanted to hit Mikayla on the head after the third time she mentioned the green streak in Shaun's purty eyes .

Rule of Survival could have been good but it was not . I just could not bring myself to like it. A good looking hero and a sizzling chemistry between the MCs is not enough for me to rate a book 4 stars.
