(Promo & Review & Giveaway) Murphy's Law By: R.S. Emeline


Murphy's Law 
By: R.S. Emeline
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Purchase Link: Smashwords 


Book Description 



Alexis MacGuire is just like other college students. She goes to class, eats, pizza, and holds down a job. The difference is, her job could get her killed.

As the unluckiest member of a family of elite assassins, she spends her spare time jetting from one country to another neutralizing scum the government doesn’t want to be attached to--often in unconventional and unplanned ways.

When she receives an email exposing the secrets of her last job she enters into a game of cat and mouse with someone known only as the Hunter. With the help of her brother, her best friend, and an FBI agent who makes her heart skip beats, she must find the Hunter before he destroys everything and everyone she loves. 

Excerpt

I was close to where the car was hidden, and I could see the flames rising in the dark behind me.  Lights strobed from the emergency vehicles, as they tried to control the blaze.  I took a deep breath and walked into the clearing where the car was parked and looked around.  No car. 

“What the Hell!” I stomped my foot on the ground and let out a feral growl. 

All the markers were where they were supposed to be.  White paint on the ground.  Black X on the tree.  Empty dirt road.  I checked the time.  If I didn't get back to my hotel in the next hour I wouldn’t make my flight. 

I looked down at the ring I wore on my right hand.  Two simple silver bands surrounded a Celtic design wrapped around my finger entwined with a shamrock and a blood red stone in the center.  Each person in my family had a similar ring.  Each designed the same, only the stone was different.  We never took them off, because to take them off could mean our deaths. 

The rings were our safety nets.  The one way we could protect ourselves when an assignment didn’t go right, when we were in danger, or in my case when I was stranded because some little punk ass stole my car.  I twisted the Celtic band, enabled the tracking device and notified my brother of the S.O.S.  With a sigh, I climbed into the tree and waited to be rescued.  Again. 


Review 

This was a very great story! I enjoyed the prospect that Alexis (Lexi) is a college student but she's also in the family business of assassins. By day, she's at a class lecture, but by night she's doing her other job where she terminates the bad guys. That first of all really intrigued me. There were a good amount of thrilling scenes, where we imagine through Emeline's writing, what it would be like to be on a mission. I also liked that there was the sense of mystery, as there is a stalker/antagonist that is after Lexi, and her overprotective brother and love interest, Dane, will do anything to protect her. Now to Dane, since I mentioned him; he was a good male interest, really good. You can just tell that he and Lexi have this connection, and at first she is reluctant to feel anything for him, but an intense situation brings them together to realize what their feelings really mean to each other. I think if you like mystery, action, and an intense and passionate romance, then buy this book. It was pretty awesome! :) 

My Rating: 4.4/5
R Rating (Adult-Mature Situations)
