Redemption River: Men of Mercy by Lindsay Cross

Hunter James didn’t want or need redemption.

Until one mission turns his world upside down.

He left Mercy to fight for his country and escape a broken heart. Years later, he is hard. Cold. A man without mercy. Part of an elite Task Force, he tracks a brutal terrorist to his home town. And runs into the woman who betrayed him…

Evangeline Videl was destroyed when Hunter left. Determined to move on, she finds another man, but discovers too late the monster hidden beneath his smooth smile. Struggling to find the conviction to live, Evie finds her life spinning out of control.

Then Hunter returns…

Forced to band together to find the terrorist before its too late, Hunter and Evie must learn to forgive or risk losing the promise of redemption and their lives…
***This is a stand-alone love story. It is book 1 in the Men of Mercy series.***

This was a free book I downloaded thanks to an ad on Facebook. The blurp had me really wanting to read this one. This is a new author for me. She writes VERY detailed, however, that is sometimes needed when writing a book that has a lot of twists and turns. I found myself liking the characters even if I did get frustrated with the back and forth. I am woman that once I make up my mind, I usually don’t waffle around. (side note: There is nothing wrong with a strong woman deciding to give the love of her life a second chance) It seemed like she would change her mind every other paragraph and that just gave me whiplash.

I have been drawn to military books lately so I had high hopes for Hunter. The only time he felt real to me was when he went hunting for the bad guys in the woods. Evie just couldn’t decide whether she had a backbone or not (and it only seemed like it showed up with Hunter)

I gave it three stars because I like my heroines just as strong as my heroes!

That being said, I am not convinced to read book 2.
