    Nothing Special VII: Ex Meridian – A.E. Via

    Police Lieutenants, God and Day are under intense pressure from the chief to take back control of Atlanta’s streets.The last thing their task force needs is a pair of trained killers in town with a personal score to settle.

    Take a man and strip him of his ability to feel compassion, empathy, remorse, or any of the emotions that make him human, but leave the ones that ignite rage and aggression and you have the perfect killing machine—now imagine two of them.

    Code names Ex and Meridian are synonymous for ‘guaranteed death’ to international terrorists. Two broken men from the same crooked streets, recruited into an unsanctioned government program that few know about. Trained to operate most efficiently—lethally—together.

    When Ex returns from an op in Bolivia to learn his little brother has been accidentally killed in a feud between drug gangs, he’s stateside before he can consider the rules he’ll be breaking, and of course Meridian is right beside him. There’s mayhem on the streets of Atlanta and the police are losing control. If Godfrey and his elite team of detectives can’t get the job done then they’d be happy to lighten their caseloads for them. And Ex nor Meridian care about doing it quietly.

    “I know who you are.”The man grunted when Ex turned to leave.“You’re the fucking devil.”
    Meridian walked past, glaring one final time.“Say that loud enough… maybe God will save you.”

    But after their first run-in with the big lieutenant and his protective husband, Day, Ex and Meridian start to reevaluate their own relationship. Wondering if they could be even deadlier if they let loose the feelings for each other that they’ve been forced to suppress for years.

    Meridian’s dark eyes stayed locked on his, “A man who can fight beside the one he loves doesn’t make him weaker, Ex—it makes him more dangerous.”

    No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a HEA.

    Note: This title focuses on two new characters in the series. And while it can standalone, there are appearences from prior main characters.
    Note: This is a partners-to-lovers, out-for-you, action romance.
    Note: There are depictions of violence in this novel.

    A grieving brother out for revenge.

    A killer whose blood is literally cold.

    An assassin who kills with a whisper.

    The Devil in the house of God.

    A most compelling partners-to-lovers romance that slow-burned for eight years! Squee~!

    OTT action and suspense that’s perfectly balanced with the rest of the plot.

    God and Day’s boys coming together with their bounty hunting friends.

    Some of God’s most vulnerable moments!

    Day still winning and annoying everyone with his mouthy ways.

    The King brothers’ most painful memories coming out in the open.

    Ruxs and Green are tested as they have never been before!

    Ex seeing Meridian in the truest light.

    Meridian giving Ex the world. Ex doesn’t even need to ask. ♥(ˆ⌣ˆԅ)

    The baddest, toughest alpha pair of ’em all!

    Meridian’s dark eyes stayed locked on his, “A man who can fight beside the one he loves doesn’t make him weaker, Ex—it makes him more dangerous.”


    Okay, so I’m addicted to this series and I’m sticking around for good or bad. Luckily, it’s mostly good. The last two books showed huge improvements. My thoughts on the rest of the books here.

    I found this tag on Chelle’s Book Ramblings . It’s simple and fun. I thought I would put my own spin on it and make it a weekly thing.
