What an explosive read! I think I was probably holding my breath the entire time I was reading. Best Laid Plans is full of excitement, hot romance and adventure. Definitely a MUST READ series…


Liliana Brewster and Marcelle De Sant live a life of crime. She’s been a transporter for the organized crime for five years. Every day working toward one goal, vengeance.

Marc is a mercenary, one of the best in the business. He doesn’t have time for anything other than getting the jobs done, getting paid and getting out.
He is ruthless and very dangerous.

Marc and Lily are working a job together for the Russian mafia. He has to steal very precious diamonds and she needs to transport them. For weeks now, they keep passing by each other around the safe house and they flirt; the sexual tension is tangible between them. On the last day of the job they decide to say farewell by having a very hot sexual session. The problem is, not only orgasms will be detonating around them. Rooms, buildings, cars, and hot kinky sessions will be exploding as these two take a journey through Africa looking for those who set them up.

Both Marc and Lily have a mission and failure is not an option.


Best Laid Plans is probably one of the coolest books I’ve ever read. It was almost like watching one of those big budget action films. Every chapter comes packed with hot and electrifying thrills. Stylo Fatôme held me tightly by the throat with this story and the best part is, that I really liked it.

Lily was such a kick ass heroine. She has so many of the qualities I enjoy in a female character. She was strong, smart, funny and capable of doing anything and everything just as good, if not better than any man.

Then we have Marc, and well… What can I say about this sexy, rugged, alpha male? I can probably go on all night about how captivating he is. But together they are just the prefect duo. If there was a best couple in a book award, it would definitely go to them.

Completely entertaining from beginning to end, this is the first book in this series. Out Of Plans (The Mercenaries, #2) releases Dec. 15th, 2015. Do yourselves a favor and add these books to your TBR’s TODAY!!! You really don’t want to miss these…
