About this ebook

He’s death for hire…

Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.

She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.

Meredith Wild is one of my all-time favorite authors for a reason. Her books perfectly weave together unforgettable characters, consuming stories, and a palpable heat that is brought to life through her spectacular writing. I have loved each and every one of her stories, but what she has begun with this new series and what she has so exceptionally created in this first part is in a league of its own. The Red Ledger is one of the most addicting reads I have ever read. This book took me on one helluva whirlwind from start to finish, and made for one serious intense and consuming read that I could not get enough of. I loved every part of this story. I loved the literal fire it sent through me as I read it. I loved how it left me breathless at times. I loved that it gave me a story unlike any other I've ever read before. And I loved that it started what I know will be one of my favorite series. The first part of this series follows the suspenseful story of Isabel and Tristan. He's murder for hire, and her name is at the top of his list. Yet the moment he goes to do the deed, her breathless whisper of his name, his real name changes everything. You see Tristan and Isabel have a past, yet he doesn't remember any of it. She does though, and the more time he hesitates, the more he wonders about that past and the world of feeling that lays in that past that he can still feel the edges of. He also can't seem to stop thinking about her and wondering more about what he's forgotten. This story follows them as they set off on the run, as he tries to find the answers he seeks, and as she tries to see if the Tristan she loved all those years ago is somehow still in the man who was hired to kill her. Every word of this story will pull you in something fierce, and the more you get with these two, the more you will need more. Meredith Wild makes this world, these characters, and their story addicting to say the least, and she will have you beyond ready to see what will unfold in this new world and series. This world in this book and series is darker, its grittier and more complicated, yet there is a tangible and palpable fire that will pull your mind and heart into every breathtaking word. From start to finish this book will have you on the edge of your seat ready to see where that next turn of the page will bring you, and trust me when I say that you will be so enraptured by it all. The Red Ledger was fantastic. It was a phenomenal, quick, utterly suspenseful and fiery read that was intense as all get out and one of the most consuming reads I've read in such a long time. I loved getting every word of Isabel and Tristan's story, and I can't wait to see where those next chapters will take them both. Through every twist and turn, every action packed moment, and through every ounce of connection she created between these two characters, Meredith Wild created such an unforgettable read that I loved with all that I had! The Red Ledger is a book that will have you so in it all ready for more, and that is just part of what makes it such an incredible read.

From the 1st chapter of this story of Isabel & Tristan it has you sucked in. Could not stop. Isabel is trying to find her way from a broken heart years prior by Tristan & start over. Tristan is struggling trying to remember his past & can't from severe injuries in the service. Both have not seen each other in years. Their paths meet up in Rio but not what you are expecting by it. Riveting heart pounding page turner story. 5 star Plus Meredith Wild!! Now on to book 2.

This book grabs you by the throat from the very beginning and doesn't let you go. I was pulled right into the world of this book and felt the danger and suspense like I was being followed. Meredith Wild has written some of my favorite stories, I am a huge fan. This, however, is my new favorite. Romantic suspense can be hard to get right, too much romance, not enough nail-biting drama or there is so much action there is no time for the sexy bits. Ms. Wild nailed it, a perfect blend of both; I am looking forward to reading the other books in this series. Never before have I rooted for a hit man and a potential victim.....first time for everything!! I give this book five enthusiastic stars!!
