Blog Tour: Rules of Survival by Jus Accardo Review

Hi Everyone!

Today I am lucky enough to be taking part in the blog tour for Jus Accardo's recently released Rules of Survival!
My stop is a review of this amazing book!

Book Title: Rules of Survival

Author: Jus Accardo

Publisher: Entangled Embrace

Tagline: If you want to survive, you have to follow the rules

 Synopsis: 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.

I cannot get over the fact that I have loved every single Jus Accardo book that I have read so far. Rules of Survival has really cemented the fact that Jus Accardo is a phenomenal writer.

I have to say though; this is not my favourite cover. Don’t get me wrong I do like it, the guy is hot and it does highlight the mysterious tone of the novel but it just seemed a bit bland. However I would still pick up this book based on the cover because it does intrigue me.

Rules of Survival is a an amazing tale full of mystery, laughs and of course that sexy romance that made me swoon on more than one occasion. The story started of with a bang-literally. Within the opening pages our main character Mikayla Morgan opens the door to her world. Currently on the run as she is a suspect of her mother’s murder, Mikayla attempts to find clues to solve the murder and clear her name to hopefully have a chance at a normal life.

Mikayla is a big factor to why I enjoyed the novel so much. For a girl who is running for the law and trying to keep herself alive, she kept her sense of humour every step of the way. With a plan for everything, I found Mikayla to be one of Jus Accardo’s strongest heroines. For an 18 year old, Mikayla has had to deal with her fair share of loss, heartache and fear. However this does deter her from trying to find the truth. But I guess it helps when you have a sexy, hilarious hunk of a man shackled to you.

Shaun Denver is our leading male and wow does he leave his mark in this book. Full of sharp wit, humour and a protective streak, Shaun’s presence made a wonderful addition to this novel. After trying to aid his pseudo-father in a bounty hunting expedition Shaun shackles himself to Mikayla to stop her from getting away and to also help her.

The interaction between these two characters had me laughing out loud one second then reaching for a fan the next. Damn, Jus Accardo can write sexy really well! The words during specific scenes were scorching hot and were sizzling off the page.

The mystery in the book was never dull. I enjoyed the fact that this book started off at a fast pace and did not let up all the way through. I was just as restless to find out who was behind the murder as the characters.

All together, Jus Accardo has written a book that had me anxiously turning each page to find out more. I can’t wait to read more books by this author and I’m sure that there will be a re-read of Rules of Survival in the very near future.

Well deserved 4.5 Stars out of 5 Stars!
