Rick “Ricochet” Brennan served eight years as an elite Marine special ops Force Recon soldier. After an injury, and the terrible memories from that night, he retires and goes to work for his former Command Officer, Howard “Mack” McEvoy, at his training center in Atlanta.
Sanctum MMA appears on the surface to be a normal gym, training elite fighters to be the best. Except each trainer, hand-picked by Mack, possesses a special background that allows Mack to run one of the best-kept secrets in the country.
When twenty-three year old Quinn Wallace finally escapes her abusive husband, she turns to her father’s old Marine Corps buddy, Mack, for help. Broken and skittish, Quinn finds herself surrounded by large, intimidating men— men who could easily overpower her. She avoids them the best she can, but when Rick turns out to be more than just a rough fighter with bruised knuckles, she finds herself wondering if she can allow herself to trust again.

“Hey,” he said calmly. “Why aren’t you resting?” Rick put his hands on her shoulders, gently massaging her arms.
Quinn’s eyes grew large and went to his gloved hands.
Fuck, she hates fighting. Now I know why she looks freaked out.
Rick yanked his hands away and took a step back. “I didn’t mean for you to see me fight, Quinn. I’m sorry.”
To his surprise, Quinn stepped forward, closing the distance Rick had put between them. He watched as she hesitantly lifted her arms, placing her hands on his sweat-slicked chest. Her eyes met his and his breath left in a sharp huff. The fear he had expected to see wasn’t there. No… Quinn’s eyes were dark and glistening with lust.
“I didn’t know that watching you fight would be so comforting. It makes me feel safe, and… turned on,” she murmured. Rick shivered as her hands ran down his torso, moving over each defined muscle until they were resting on either side of his waist.
“Turned on?” Rick swallowed, barely able to speak with Quinn touching him like that. She was only just about healed from the attack. He figured it would be months, if not longer before she’d be interested in pursuing anything physical.
“Yes, turned on.” Quinn’s fingers dug into Rick’s waist, her thumbs making small circles on the ‘v’ shaped ridges of his lower abs. Scorching waves of pleasure rippled down his spine, instantly making his cock come to life.
“Jesus,” he muttered softly. Using every last bit of willpower he had, Rick captured Quinn’s wrists, removing her hands from his body. “Not here, doll.” He glanced around, but none of the other fighters were looking their way. Still, he’d kill them if they saw the lust in Quinn’s eyes. That was for him, and him alone.
Quinn pouted, crossing her arms and glaring like a kid denied her favorite candy.
He couldn’t help himself. The sight of this tiny thing trying to look intimidating was funny. Rick laughed. “You’re too much, doll.” The corner of her mouth twitched up—it was just a hint of a smile, but it made Rick’s day. Quinn hadn’t smiled once since his team rescued her. Seeing some of her personality coming back flooded him with emotion.
What can I say? I enjoyed this new series by Heather C Leigh! Ricochet was full of drama, suspense and some super sexy hot scenes! This review is a wrap up of all three books, Locked and Loaded, Friendly Fire and Extraction Point.
Rick “Ricochet” Brennan is all alpha male. Trained killer, killed or be killed. Former Military, he is bossy, cocky and one of those never more than once in my bed kind of guys, he earned his nickname Ricochet for a reason. But that all changes when walks into Sanction one day and see’s Quinn sitting at the front desk. From that day on, nothing was the same.
Quinn found her Sanction in Sanction MMA. These men, although she was still on edge, they became her home, her security and much more than she could ever imagine. Quinn needed rescued in more ways than one. She ran from her old life to start anew. She fled to survive, escaping from a horrendous man and marriage. She refuses to ever be treated the way she was previously. Even though she was hesitant Rick seemed to break down Quinn’s walls. Throughout the books you will endure everything Quinn went through and the change in Rick.
Once Rick finds out what Quinn has really been hiding will it break their connection? When the unthinkable happens, will he blame himself? Can they both be saved? Relationships will be tested, will they survive?
Follow the story of Rick “Ricochet Brennan” and Quinn, through these three books. By the second book I had to know just how this story would end and quickly dove into the third. I really don’t want to say too much on this one and as you need to experience the entire story yourself. The series was a great read, full of drama, angst, suspense and some super steamy scenes. I really liked how it all wrapped up in Extraction Point!
