The Rules by Kerry Barnes

Do you live by the rules, or die by them?

Holed up in prison, Mike Regan is offered a deal – his freedom in exchange for his firm taking down the gang that is supplying a new dangerous drug that has hit the streets. What starts as a game soon becomes a shocking revelation with devastating consequences.

Meanwhile, Mike’s fiancé, Zara Ezra, has her own firm to run. But when the so-called Governor is out to take her down, she has her own decision to make – either fight, run, or write her own rule book…

My Rating: 5/5 

My Review: My heart literally cannot tale any more! I read part one in practically a day and the same can be said for part 2. Once I had finished book 2 from this author in 2 days I almost went into a major sulk because I cannot read part 3 until its release in July and it seems like nothing in my long list of more than 500 books on my Kindle will be suitable right now! So I guess you can guess what I thought of this from that statement alone.

The Rules is part two of three and is an absolute MUST READ! Books one and two are some of the best books I have read in a while and I am so happy I finally got around to reading them. The book centers around Mike Regan who is currently in prison. However, he and other members of his Firm also serving at her Majesty s pleasure get offered a deal. They need to agree to come out of prison and find the people responsible for a new drug that is sweeping the streets and taking many lives with it.

When you see that kind of description it seems like a simple enough story line, but with the first book delving into many more aspects and characters it isn’t really as simple as it seems. I fear saying too much as people who haven’t read the first book will inevitable come across spoilers.

What I will say is that for two days straight nothing got done at home for me as this book took priority. Kerry Barnes has created a bunch of characters that I was compelled to read about, a story line that had me gripped from the very first page and a whole host of other things going on. I cannot praise the book, the writing and the sheer enjoyment I got from this, but what I would say is that these will without a doubt make my top ten list for 2019!
