From Liliana Hart’s New York Times bestselling MacKenzie family comes a new story by USA Today bestselling author Robin Covington…

Atticus Rush doesn’t really like people. Years in Special Ops and law enforcement showed him the worst of humanity, making his mountain hideaway the ideal place to live. But when his colleagues at MacKenzie Security need him to save the kidnapped young daughter of a U.S. Senator, he’ll do it, even if it means working with the woman who broke his heart …his ex-wife.

Lady Olivia Rutledge-Cairn likes to steal things. Raised with a silver spoon and the glass slipper she spent years cultivating a cadre of acquaintances in the highest places. She parlayed her natural gift for theft into a career of locating and illegally retrieving hard-to-find items of value for the ridiculously wealthy. Rush was the one man who tempted her to change her ways…until he caught her and threatened to turn her in.

MacKenzie Security has vowed to save the girl. Olivia can find anything or anyone. Rush can get anyone out. As the clock winds down on the girl’s life, can they fight the past, a ruthless madman and their explosive passion to get the job done?

MY REVIEW

 

As a former Special Ops operative, Atticus Rush now lives in seclusion away from the rest of the world. His world now revolves around his life ‘on the mountain’ and the jobs he accepts as a mercenary. Very few people are allowed the privilege of entering his domain. It’s a life Atticus has chosen, and one he doesn’t plan on changing.

When Rush is asked by Mackenzie Security for help on a ‘job’, hesitation is there. Then Atticus discovers that the daughter of a US Senator – Katrina – has been kidnapped by someone looking for a way to get back at the Senator. Rush’s skills in extraction are a necessity to carry out this mission. Atticus knows that he can’t pull this job off alone. They will need to seek the help of his ex-wife, Lady Olivia Rutledge-Cairn. With a past that didn’t end on the best of terms, these former lovers are less than thrilled to be in each others company again.

With Katrina’s life on the line, Rush and Livvy know that the only way they can pull off this job is by combining their expertise. It doesn’t take them long to fall into familiar ways, and the fireworks begin to fly. Of course, their attraction to one another was never a problem. Now that they are thrown together, Rush and Livvy will rekindle feelings that both thought were best left in the past.

Rush is a novella packed with corruption, politics, and romance. The plight of Atticus and Livvy will pull you into its grip. Taking you through the lives of these engaging characters. Now – I have not read the Mackenzie Family series, but if Robin’s writing is anything like the rest of the series…then I am hooked!!

Seriously – can you imagine writing a novella related to a series from another author?? Robin Covington wrote a flawless contribution to this series, but added her own spin of sexual chemistry with the addition of Rush and Livvy. This is a book you will devour in one sitting, but don’t take my word for it. Dive between the covers of this book….enjoy the Rush!!
