We begin with Rick freaking out after finding out that not only has Quinn been kidnapped by her husband Travis, but the fact that she is married since Quinn never mentioned a word to Rick about having a husband. He and the guys at the MMA club begin searching for Quinn and when they finally find her, she's been beaten badly. Travis gets away and you know he'll be back.
Rick steps up in this volume and fights for Quinn and does what he can to protect her. He's a good man and loves her completely. Quinn's character never really grew on me and a couple of the things she does in this book do not help my opinion of her at all. She makes decisions without thinking of the impact they will have on others and even made a demand of Rick that was so unfair and selfish. Yet she's shocked with the result when Rick is angry. Later, after Rick assures her he did as she asked, Quinn reads something that makes her doubt him and she quickly assumes he lied. She was just frustrating and naive, but not necessarily bad.
Anyway, readers do get the happy ending we wanted and overall I enjoyed this serial.
** First published on book blog Will Read for Feels.
Hot and handsome ex-military guys with cocky attitudes and scarred souls? I was in the moment I heard Heather C. Leigh’s new trilogy featured a guy who’d fit this description to a tee. When I found out there was a whole gym full of these guys, I was all but pulling out the pompoms, because my love for alpha book boyfriends knows few, if any, limits. Juxtapose a heavy hitter like ex-Marine Rick “Ricochet” Brennan with a fragile yet steel-spined flower like Quinn Wallace, a woman trying to escape her abusive husband, and I was intrigued from the moment I read the blurb for the Ricochet series.
I found myself really enjoying the characters in this series. Rick was butt-kicking on the outside and reluctantly gooey on the inside, and it was a pleasure to see him go from playboy to prince through the course of this series. Meanwhile, I found myself really appreciating the way Quinn fought to reclaim her sassiness and self-respect after having her confidence and body broken by her ex’s brutality.
Extraction Point is book three in the Ricochet series, and it’s where everything that’s been building as far as the characters’ personal development, their relationship, and the issues that threaten to tear them apart are concerned comes to a head. I can’t really go into detail about what those things are without spoiling the other books in the series, but these include: the danger posed by Quinn’s abusive past, the secrets in Rick’s present, and the emotional baggage that threatens to keep both Quinn and Rick from trusting one another with their hearts. So let me say that I found the HEA pretty darned satisfying. And if you’re thinking of jumping into the series with this book, I’d say one word: don’t. You’ll miss all the fun from seeing Rick and Quinn tiptoe around each other, explode into hot and heavy fireworks, and then go back to tiptoeing when the fallout starts topping the intensity scale.
This third book especially brings back the action-packed quality of the first book in the trilogy, something I missed a bit in the second volume. It also tempers the steamy sex scenes with sweet and funny moments between the two main characters and the family they’ve found at Sanctum, the MMA gym where both Rick and Quinn work.
That being said, I do wish I had gotten to learn more about Rick’s past and his family, and on a very anal note, I wish some tighter copy editing had been done on all three novels, but neither of these points kept me from enjoying the books (or devouring all three books in the trilogy within a single afternoon). A word of warning, though: if you’re not really into cliffhangers, it would be best to download all three books in the series in one go and read them sequentially. Still, even though cliffhangers are a pet peeve of mine, the fact that Book 3 was released just a couple of weeks after Book 2, which in turn was released a couple of weeks after Book 1, had me giving this series a get-out-of-jail-free card on this point.
And on a final note, I just want to add that, with so many book-boyfriendables working at Sanctum MMA, I sure hope Ms. Leigh gets to work on some of the other guys’ stories, pronto!
