#NewRelease #Review ~~ Saint by J.B. Salsbury
Now he’s after revenge.
There are worse prisons than the lush estate of a notorious drug smuggler in Mexico. Mercy lives out her days alone and hidden from the world, but her sleep is riddled with nightmares of the muti and all the boys and girls just like her who weren’t lucky enough to get away.
If the people who kept her as a child are in Mexico, is it possible she could find them?
What starts as vigilante justice unravels a web of human trafficking deeper and darker than Milo and Mercy could’ve imagined. When she comes face-to-face with the people she once considered family, she proves she is far from the Angel they raised her to be.
Stephanie’s 4.5 Blush Review
***Spoiler Alert – Do Not Read Unless You have Read GhostGirl***
“Are you lost?”….. “Aren’t we all?”
What an amazing conclusion to Milo & Mercy’s unique story! The journey that Milo and Mercy experience is one that starts out unsure and awkward but blossoms into more. It is filled with ups and downs, and desperate moments. They fight for freedom but it comes with a price.
Milo is fighting to keep Mercy safe. Sacrifices are made. They find themselves in the last place either of them would ever want to be – Mexico. The only place to go for safety and security is the estate/compound owned by Milo’s father Esteban, aka El Jefe. But safety and security come with a price. Milo gives a little piece of himself every time he must do something for El Jefe.
“I came to Mexico and needed a place to stay, but Esteban’s hospitality comes at a price.”
Mercy is kind, sweet, and pure. She has suffered greatly at the hands of others both emotionally and mentally. Ghostgirl ended with a bang and Mercy is in grave danger. I needed more! I needed to see where this would take me! Mercy is thrown into yet another world that she doesn’t understand. I was on the edge of my seat while each scenario unfolded. So many complications and layers to her story.
‘You are brave, you will persevere, and your reward will be your freedom.”
And Milo! What can I say about him!!! He is strong, loyal and loving. His connection with Mercy is soul deep and emotional. Two feelings that he has never experienced. His upbringing had him surrounded by gangs and violence – the “normal” for him. But through it all he knew that family was the most important thing. When it comes to Mercy he struggles with his own self-worth. He never gives up. Milo realizes that family is not only those who share your blood.
The missing pieces of the puzzle come together. My heart was pounding in my chest as discoveries are made as well as choices. Saint is a wonderful conclusion to the unique Ghostgirl. Such a great ride! J.B. Salsbury does it again with this captivating and unique duet. I can’t wait to see what she writes next! I will definitely be reading it!
“Everything is a journey, a wild ride with constant surprises.”
