Ricochet: Extraction Point (Ricochet #3) by Heather C. Leigh

Published March 30, 2015 by Shelbyville

Rick "Ricochet" Brennan served eight years as an elite Marine special ops Force Recon soldier. After an injury, and the terrible memories from that night, he retires and goes to work for his former Command Officer, Howard "Mack" McEvoy, at his training center in Atlanta.

Sanctum MMA appears on the surface to be a normal gym, training elite fighters to be the best. Except each trainer, hand-picked by Mack, possesses a special background that allows Mack to run one of the best-kept secrets in the country.

When twenty-three year old Quinn Wallace finally escapes her abusive husband, she turns to her father’s old Marine Corps buddy, Mack, for help. Broken and skittish, Quinn finds herself surrounded by large, intimidating men— men who could easily overpower her. She avoids them the best she can, but when Rick turns out to be more than just a rough fighter with bruised knuckles, she finds herself wondering if she can allow herself to trust again.

Ricochet is a full-length novel to be released as three parts.

My Thoughts…

I could just repeat what I wrote in the other reviews for the first two parts of this book, but there is so much more to share about this great book.   

Each part, and there are 3, of this book leaves the reader with a cliffhanger.    Fortunately, Heather knows how to write the perfect cliffhanger.   She leaves the reader on the edge of their seat needing to know what happens next.    Then with the next part of the story, she picks it up right where she left off, bringing the reader back into the story.   I started each part of this story with high expectations and was never let down.   

Now, onto this particular part of the story…

I was left at the end of the second part with fear.    Quinn had to be with Rick.   They were meant to be together; surely Heather would not pull them apart after they had work so hard to get back together.   I held out hope that this would end the right way.   Nothing, absolutely NOTHING, was easy for Quinn and Rick.   They wanted to trust each other, they wanted to love each other, and more than anything they wanted to be together.   I loved how the story was written to give the reader hope, only to have it taken apart.   It kept my emotions running and my fingers turning the pages.  

This is not an easy series to read, the subjects covered are tough and hard to talk about.   Heather handles it with a reality that is rarely seen.  The abuse and toughness with these characters make them sometimes hard to love and understand, but Rick and Quinn deserve each other and find ways to make it work.
