Rules of Survival by Jus Accardo


From Entangled Publishing:

Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother's murder. She's been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.
Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She's a piece of work, and Shaun can't decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.

As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.
Jus Accardo's latest is a New Adult mystery.  Kayla is wanted for murdering her mother.  She has been on the run for a year - exhausted, alone and at wit's end, she returns to the scene of the worst day of her life to find whatever clue her mother left her.  Of course, while there she's caught by two bounty hunters - Patrick Tanner, the man who has chased Kayla and her Mom her entire life, and Shaun, his apprentice/adopted son.  Before Kayla is taken away, someone opens fire on all three of them and the race is on.
To survive, Kayla will have to play nice with Shaun and learn to trust the man she's ran from all her life.  She doesn't really have a choice though, because Shaun has handcuffed them together and lost the key.  
With Accardo's trademark wit and snarkiness, Kayla is a fun and fiesty heroine.  I love that Accardo's characters are strong and decent.  She's brave, self-reliant and smart.  For his part, Shaun is resourceful, brave and just damaged enough to understand what Kayla's been through.  Together they are a force to be reckoned with as they hide from their many attackers and try to figure out the mysteries surrounding Kayla's life and her mother's death.  
RoS is full of twists and turns, lots of misdirection, and just a good solid mystery.  RoS has a little something for everyone, humor, mystery, heat and just a touch of angst.  Plus, it's on sale right now - get it for $2.99!
Add Rules of Survival to that TBR pile and enjoy!
