Summary

Noah Bradford knows secrets that could get him killed, and staying in WITSEC seems like a good plan. What he didn't plan on is losing his heart to a man who is sworn to protect him. 

Battle scarred US Marshal Robert "Mac" Mackenzie has a job to do, and guaranteeing the safety of Noah Bradford is at the top of that list. Mac will do whatever it takes to keep Noah safe, even if it means walking away. 

Mac and Noah, brought together during extreme circumstances, have been separated by evil. It's been six years, give or take, and Noah is coming for vengeance against the men who killed his mother. He's on a collision course with Mac, who has no idea of the man Noah has become. Sparks fly and the heat sizzles when these two powerful men are reunited, but will they survive the passion the past created? 

Contains mature themes.

A overwritten and complicated novel

The audio performance is the better part of this overwritten and complicated book. The story opens up many possible directions but the author always follows the most conventional option.

Soooooo Good!!!!!!!!

Finally!!!! I've read this series & all books that follow & loved them!! I'm so excited that they're coming to audio!!!!! *Noah was 11 years old when his stepdad & his boss killed his mom & kidnapped him. He met Mac when he was 17, when the compound he was living at got raided by the FBI, US Marshalls & other law enforcement agencies. Mac stayed with him for 2 years until a tragedy happens & Mac feels like he can't take care of Noah & steps back. 5 years later Noah is "Ghost" in a special team called Phoenix. The past has caught up with them & there's a mole in the Marshalls office.* Tristan James did an amazing job of bringing Mac & Noah to life!!!!!!!

It started out good

I liked the first part of the book the most. Moving from the past to the present-day was done in two choppy transitions where the action was not adequately covered. He goes from 17 to 20 with a momentous event and no explanation. Then it's 5 years later with another big change. I'm not a fan of unwanted selfless acts that make people miserable. The story concept was really good but it felt like a fleshed-out outline instead of a completed story. There were too many plot gaps without adequate detail. I caught myself looking at the clock to see how much was left. I wanted them to get back together and get on with it. Tristan James did a nice job performing the book.

Great start to a fantastic series!

I love this series and this opening book is fantastic. It does a great job both in introducing the MCs and in world building/introducing secondary characters. Noah and Mac are great MCs...you really root for and agonize with both of them. The story is well developed and the action is tense and exciting. Tristan James is one of my favorite narrators/performers and this book is no exception. It’s a great listen!

Great start to a series!

I’ve been looking forward to listening to this. It’s my first Reese Knightley book. I have to say, I had to get used to her style of writing and had to check with the ebook sometimes, just to make sure that I didn’t miss anything, when the story would seemingly jump. It was the time frame that did that to me. Once I got used to it, my listening experience went smoother. I like the way how she wrote Mac and Noah’s love story. It spanned years, and while there was already chemistry and love budding in the early years, the two didn’t actually came together until Noah had grown to his own. It took away the age factor difference between them. It’s an intense story, might trigger some. But to me, I admire Noah, how he rose up from his horrible past and became a bad@ass lethal hero. The supporting characters are great too. I can’t wait to get to know more about them. Tristan James’ narration was on point. Great book to listen for those who enjoy alpha males, law enforcement officers with a integrity and loyalty. 💙

Justice is served!

Would I listen to it again: yes ✔ __ Did the story keep me engaged: yes ✔ __ Was I invested in the characters: yes ✔ __ 📖 I listened to all 5 books in the Out for Justice series back to back and loved every one of them. My review covers the whole series in general because there is a story arc that is built on in each book so the full series really needs to be listened to to get all the answers, but that was OK, because the series is well developed, each story is action packed, full of tension and excitement, has good pace, likeable characters, really bad-bad guys who get what's coming to them, and overall I was happy with the conclusion. 😊 ___ 🎧 Tristan James was a good choice of narrator for this series and he did a great job with the narration. Each character had his own voice and was consistently maintained throughout the series. I had no problem distinguishing characters and his rhythm, inflections and intonations all worked to bring the characters to life. 👍👍 Overall a excellent series that I thoroughly enjoyed and will happily listen to again.

Wow just Wow!

Talk about excitement, suspense, pain, angst and downright thrilling roller coaster ride and throw in hot operatives and men and women saving the world and you touch on Ms. Knighley's ability to entertain you with her talents! Definitely picking up the rest of her books! And audio of course because Tristain James does a superb job narrating!

An all time fave

This book blew me away. Mac and Noah are a new favorite couple. I bought the rest of the series before I was done with this one and have no regrets. Not only is this book plotted perfectly but so is the overall plot of the entire series. If you’re a fan of thrillersand age gap romances you should check out this book.

Great series start

If you want to be grabbed from the first sentence and not let go Ricochet does that. Combined with action, suspense, romance and with fantastic narration made this 5 stars for me. I can’t wait to hear the second book.

This book is so great

Meet Mac and Noah... Mac is a US Marshall, hardened and scarred by his time serving his country... Noah is a victim rescued by Mac's team... He was a witness, scared, in hiding... These two met in a frightful situation... Noah had two options, to run or to trust that this stranger would really help and rescue him! Their attraction is imediate, but Noah is so young, and under Mac protection... All Mac could do was to get away and give Noah his freedom... But to be far away doesn't mean to forget... Noah's past ends up bringing them together years later... and now none one them were willing to walk alway... This book got me hooked from page one... Reese did a wonderful job in this debut . Loved the narration
