Praise for the Men of Mercy Series
"Lindsay Cross delivers high-powered action, alpha heroes and an exciting conclusion!" 
ELLE JAMES
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

"I thought this was a great book and I am loving this series! didn't see part of the end coming which was awesome! Although the very end of the book left me with so much heartache for Hoyt. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series!! 
Five Star Goodreads review


"I just love all the guys in this series!!!!
As usual Lindsay Cross has delivered another great story filled with action, sexiness that is off the charts and gripping emotions. Jared and Sparrow are absolutely great characters."

Reckless River (Men of Mercy 03) by Lindsay Cross is a riveting romantic suspense novel. This is the first book by Ms. Cross that I have read but it will not be the last. Romantic suspense with the suspense taking the lead is a favorite genre of mine and this one is good.

Jared is out to find his brother who is missing. The loyalty between siblings is wonderful done even if Jared goes off the grid to save Hoyt. There are enough twists in the story to keep it from being predictable. At the same time, the reader knows more than the individual characters since the author allows us to see inside of Jared’s and Sparrow’s head.

The story is tightly structured with family politics backwoods style, betrayal, mistrust, near death experiences and finally love. It is one rollercoaster ride in the Tennessee Mountains. Also I loved the dossier, a very nice touch.

Fans of the early Ghost Walker books by Christine Feehan should check this one out. No paranormal in it but still the intensity and emotional level is there. I have already purchased another in the series which should be proof of a high recommendation.

Reckless River, the 3rd book in the Men of Mercy Series, was a surprisingly darker, but good read. I have to say there are some dark parts in the first 2 books, but this book took a walk on the darker side.

What this book is about:

When brothers Jared and Hoyt Crowe were little their parents died, and their aunt Mrs Kay abused and tried to kill them. The reason they are alive is because a little girl name Sparrow, with golden eyes, snuck in and set them free, saving them. Well Jared isn't a fearful little boy anymore, and he is bent on revenge. When Jared and Hoyt go home to get the revenge Jared needs, Hoyt is captured. Then while trying to save his brother Jared is also captured by none other than Sparrow. When Sparrow realizes who she has captured, she releases him, and vows to not only help him get his brother back, but to go with them. Jared and Sparrow are wildly attracted to each other, and want to start a life together, once they get Hoyt, and get back to safety. But that all changes when they find Hoyt hanging from the ceiling skinned alive and tortured near death. When Sparrow steps forward to help cut Hoyt down, he yells please don't let her cut me. Jared is seeing red now. He can't believe the woman he has dreamed about since she saved him, the woman he was going to try to start a life with, did this to his brother. Something Dark snaps inside Jared seeing his brother in so much pain, near death. He doesn't care if Sparrow swears she didn't do it. He ties, gags, and kidnaps her. She will pay for what she did to Hoyt. After some time Jared starts to question if this women who he wants so badly, who has helped him many times, could really hurt his brother this way. Will Jared find out the truth?

Graphic yet interesting storyline. Psychopathic mountain tribe abuse, torture and murder people for fun and profit. A young girl helps two young brothers escape from the tribe matriarch's attempt to kill them. Now adults, the older brother wants to exterminate the old woman. All of this is a great story idea.

Unfortunately the dialogue is not entertaining or informative.

The characters are believable but not their actions. Studly Special Forces brothers are separately captured by the psychopathic mountain folks they escaped from as children?

The older brother is captured by the girl that helped them escape years ago. And they, of course, start screwing each other. Which is an epic failure as a warrior. "I will always place the mission first."

Warriors Creed:
I will always place the mission first.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen comrade.

No desire to re-read this story. I am interested in other works by this author.

While reading this series I find myself shocked that this is a new author. The writing is such that even though I've never been in the mountains of Tennessee, I find myself standing in a commune in the mountains of Tennessee watching this story unfold. I see the characters, I understand the accents even if I may not be pronouncing the words correctly, I see the clothing or lack of. The action we love and of course the hot Alpha is always present!

I was anxious to read this third book of the men of mercy series by Ms. Lindsay Cross because I knew it was not only going to be good but an enthralling story with non-stop action, involved plot twists/turns and captivating fully developed characters that I am fully invested in this series even though this is the third book. Ms. Cross knows how to write the intricacies and bonds in a military group of men especially when both of them happen to be brothers whose mission is almost as secret as their life but their ties to each other and to the heroine is so strong that it makes the book difficult to put down!
Jared has always been there for his younger brother Hoyt protecting him from all harm not only in life but also in the military. While on leave Jared’s brother Hoyt is kidnapped and Jared must go to the place that still scares him since he was little his home in order to rescue Hoyt. To Jared home was a place with equally horrible people and miserable memories Jared is on a personal mission of revenge until Jared runs into the girl that saved him and his brother, the girl of his dreams Sparrow Pickney. Will Jared take revenge on everyone even Sparrow who he also has feelings for?
Out of the two Ms. Cross books I have read in the men of mercy series this book had a little different angle to it. As opposed to the story centering around the secretive military missions the men go on this one was of a personal nature for the hero Jared and his brother Hoyt. Jared was really a complicated mix on one hand he’s the protector of his brother, the strong self assured confident handsome weapons sergeant of task force scorpion but he’s also the scared frightened little boy that wants revenge against who left him to die wracking his mind with nightmares.
