DOUBLE the thrill, double the action, and even more heated passion in this second installment of the Mercenaries series. What a crazy ride Lily, Marc and Kingsley gave us, even though this second time around they found themselves all Out Of Plans…


This second book starts after Marc left Lily heart broken by that beautiful yet cruel letter, saying goodbye. She finds herself lost and mad for falling for him. Lily is very strong so she only allows herself a few tears before forming a new strategy. With renewed purpose she goes back to her revenge plans; to find and eliminate from this world , the man that took her sister’s life, and there is only one person who can help her get to him, Kingsley…

Kingsley welcomes Lily with open arms and they begin training and working together right away. Their dynamic is amazing. They have fun training and they balance each other perfectly, every time they are out on a job.

Six months after Kingsley took her in, she sees Marc again and it turns out he has very valuable information that can help her achieve her goal. So, Marc and Lily call a truce and they decide to work together but nothing else, nothing romantic can happen between them. But when they are together, shooting and sparring, the danger and adrenaline work as fuel that makes the sexual tension burn even deeper.


Marc wants Lily back and he is jealous of the close relationship she now has with Kingsley. Marc knows he broke her heart and even though he was trying to protect her by leaving her, his feelings for her only grew stronger in the time that they were apart. Can he deal with all the old feelings he has for her? He wants to protect her fiercely but he also knows she is very strong and that she is nothing if not a mercenary just like him or even better. Her strength is what he loves most about her but he struggles with the fear of her getting hurt and that throws off his whole game.

Lily knows how much both Mark and Kingsley love her but she’s discovering how she must deal with each men individually. She adores Kingsley in a brotherly way and Marc is the man she loves and yet she wants to beat the crap out of him on a daily basis. Both guys are very important to her. They have become her only family and she hopes that together the three of them will be able to avenge her sister’s death. But the question remains, will Lily be able to pull the trigger when she comes face to face with the Russian Mafia Monster that has been haunting her dreams?

Never a dull moment when reading a Stylo Fatôme book and this one was packed with action on top of HOT romance, making it a very entertaining series. I loved the development of the relationship between Marc and Lily, two individuals that can’t do hearts and flowers but that they are highly intense and passionate about each other.

I must admit that my favorite thing about this book was Kingsley . This British mercenary was so sexy and with a larger than life personality. I really think he deserves his own book. He is so funny and charming. He is one of those characters that makes you want to materialize inside the book, if only for just one minute and do wicked things with him. He added so much more depth to the story. He became more than a secondary character and truly stole a big chunk of my heart. I really hope to read his book one day…

Amazing read, I highly recommend series. Gripping and very steamy story, that I’m sure will become a favorite to everyone who reads it.
