About 122 Rules
Title: 122 Rules (122 Series, Book 1)
Author: Deek Rhew
Release date: April 5
Publisher: Pandamoon Publishing
In his black and white world, Sam Bradford--former Marine turned government assassin--finally sees a speck of grey. He has always followed orders without question, but his latest assignment threatens to disrupt the precision of his universe and may either severe or redeem his last remaining sliver of humanity.
Using his mastery of the 122 Rules of Psychology, Sam hunts down everyone The Agency sends him to find and eliminates them. Just as he has his rifle scope focused on his latest victim, Monica Sable, a SoCal girl entangled with the mob, his long-dormant conscience reappears for a final performance...one last ditch effort to save the sinking ship of Sam's soul. He's killed innocents before, but tarries on pulling the trigger this time.
When Monica escapes his crosshairs and fumbles her way across the country in a pathetic attempt to elude capture, Sam gives chase. But he's not the only one after her. Ruthless henchmen, hired by the mob, froth like bloodhounds and nip at Monica's heels. Now Sam is faced with a choice: turn his back on the rules and jeopardize his way of life by helping her or join the pack and rip her to shreds.
He and Erin love to share books by reading aloud to one another. In addition, they enjoy spending time with friends, running, boxing, lifting weights, and exploring the little town--with antique shops and bakeries--they call home.

And now, for my thoughts on 122 Rules!
This fast-paced novel, with characters that leap out of the pages, will grab you and take you for a wild ride! I found myself seamlessly drawn into Monica's world, and the frustration she has with the hand she's dealt. She definitely deals with some things that made me angry at the people working against her. As the novel progressed, we get to see the harsh reality of what Witness Protection can really be like (not the funny, lighthearted takes on it that many movies attempt), and watch as she struggles. Sam is a whole other character who was truly fascinating. I enjoyed watching his backstory unfold and his reasoning make sense, as well as his shift in understanding as he starts to dig into Monica's case. This is the perfect novel for fans of kick-butt heroines, creepy killers, and getting caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. An absolute must-read!
