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.
Ricochet: Friendly Fire is the second of a three part serial by Heather C. Leigh which tells the story of Rick, a former marine turned fighter and Quinn, who has run away from an abusive marriage. The book immediately picks up where the first leaves off. After having made love, Quinn has left Rick asleep in her bed and flees to her deceased father’s home to sort out her feelings and decides that if she is ever going to be able to let anyone in, she has to take the next step to free herself which is to file for divorce. She is terrified of Travis finding her but if she is ever going to have a life with Rick, this is the only way. But when he finally finds her, will Quinn ever be safe?
Again, another great part to the series. Rick and Quinn relationship grows and they begin learning more about each other. I’m totally in love with several of Rick’s marine buddies. I was a little bothered at first that Rick and Quinn move to being in love fairly quickly but it’s a serial and I did like their relationship.
