Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother's murder. She's been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.

Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She's a piece of work, and Shaun can't decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.

As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.

Mikki's Review:

A few months ago, I got the opportunity to read my first book by Jus Accardo, which was Ruined, and I absolutely fell in love with her writing style and her characters! I was really excited when I read the synopsis for Rules of Survival. It sounded different from the NA books that I have read. I was pleasantly surprised and loved every second of this book! 

Kayla is on the run. She is wanted for her mom's murder. When she decides to come back to the murder scene to clear her name, she comes face-to-face with a cocky bounty hunter that will make her feel things that she's never felt before. From the moment Shaun puts the handcuffs on her, her world will never be the same. Lies, betrayals, secrets ... Together, they embark on a journey where playing with the rules is the only way out ... 

This book was a great reading escape! From the first page to the last, I loved following Kayla and Shaun's journey. The plot kept me turning the pages and Kayla and Shaun had a great chemistry that was real, fun and sexy. What I loved the most about their story is that there was no insta-love. Their relationship grew slowly and it was actually interesting to see them fall for one another. Kayla and Shaun were lovable characters and they completed each other well. I loved how Kayla confided in Shaun. Next to him she felt safe and he knew more about her than anybody else did. After running and hiding from the world, Kayla finally found someone she could trust. 

Shaun ... Shaun ... Shaun ... Eeeeeep! What a cocky, smart-a**, sexy bounty hunter! He had me laughing and swooning! He really was an amazing character and I loved the way he took care of Kayla. He made her promises and he kept them until the very end. From the moment he embarked on this crazy journey with her, he never left her side. After all the craziness in her life, Kayla needed to find somebody like him.

Overall, this story was packed with twists and turns, fascinating characters and exciting moments! This book kept me interested until the very and even if the ending felt a bit to rushed in my opinion, I still loved the way the story ended. 


I give, Rules of Survival, by Jus Accardo 4 exciting, action-packed, page-turning, suspenseful stars!
