Renegade is the first book in The Mercenaries series by Raven White. This is the first book of Ms. White’s that I have read, so I was curious as to what I might find between the covers. This is a romantic suspense- with danger, mystery, opposites attract, Alpha males, and a sassy leading lady. This is a tried and true recipe, which Ms. White has put her own spin on. It is fairly predictable, but enjoyable nonetheless.
I really feel that the story could use a little more development and depth- which would make it an even better read. There were intriguing and suspenseful moments, and the chemistry between Eliza and Renegade was off the charts. So, if you like your stories on the spicy side- this definitely fits that bill.
The story definitely got better as the story evolved- but there were parts where the flow was disrupted, and the story lagged from time to time. I am intrigued by where this series is headed, so will be keeping my eye out for upcoming releases: Hacker (Book 2) and Sensei (Book 3) are listed as releasing soon.
Alpha Male sexiness meets sassy leading lady- and the sparks fly!
Thank you, Raven White!
