Review: Rogue (Deadliest Lies #1)  by Michele Mannon

My lover is dead.

And they think I killed him.

I'm running rogue. Hell bent on both revenge and redemption. Whatever it takes, I'm going to finish a job that began nine months ago. An unauthorized assignment that turned horribly, devastatingly wrong. My miscalculation. My fault. My heart left shattered into incomplete pieces which will never wholly fit back together again.

But first I have to outsmart my former organization and the hired killer they've sent after me; a killer who knows my every move, who’s been inside my head, my heart, and my dreams.

I'm the traitor, Kylie. The rogue mercenary. Jaxson's newest assignment. And this is our love story.

Oh yeah, this was a good one. Rogue hit me in all the right spots with action, intrigue and the right amount of heat. I originally read the blurb for the second book in the Deadliest Lies series and had wanted to read that. When the opportunity came up to read Rogue first, I jumped on it. Best jump I made because I could not put this book down.


The characters in this story are top A-Grade choice. Kylie is so kick-ass! Sassy (especially with those t-shirts!) and a smart mouth to boot, yet there is still a vulnerable side to her. She is determined to take down the Pricks who killed her dad. There is no resisting Jaxson! He’s so sexy, smart and what a wicked sense of humor that no one can escape. These two are explosively hot together. Jaxson is a trained mercenary and Kylie is training to become one, too. Let’s not forget the secondaries. Declan, Hayden, Francis and the rest of the crew help keep things interesting.


Lots of action and intrigue to play out as they try to take out the bad guys keeping everything moving at a fast pace. The story is told from alternating time lines in Kylie’s first person POV. The Shelby past as Kylie starts out with her mercenary training, and the Paris now, which is nine months later, after she was late for a mission that costs Jaxson his life. She’s determined to finish her assignment that will give her revenge on the Pricks who killed her father. She just needs to avoid the killer her former organization has sent after her. Surprise of surprises, who is after her when it turns out someone isn’t so dead after all!


Rogue was my first book by author Michele Mannon and it’s not going to be the last that’s for sure. Sexy characters, fast-paced plots, and lots of delicious twists, I’m pretty sure I am now an addict. This is definitely an author I will be following and recommending.
