Summary

The second instalment of Kerry Barnes’ explosive new series!

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....

LOVED IT

I am a massive fan of Kerry’s she has this special gift where she can take the reader though a whirlwind of emotion and twist you up in knots. But I do have to admit that this is the first one of Kerry’s that I have listened to on audio!

I loved the narrator, who had her work cut out with all the different characters. She has done a brilliant job of bringing them to life. The only downfall of this audio is that it is so long. In future I will stick to what I know and read them. Due to the fact that I could of read it quicker.

So this is the second instalment of the series and what a story it is…this series just get’s better. I am not going to rave on about the plot because you need to read this for yourself. The Rules certainly steps up a pace compared to the last book. Not only does it step up a pace but also the violence. With some proper eye popping stuff……LOVED IT!

It took me three days to listen to this, listening to it any second I could, I was dying to know what was going to happen next. This story will have you on the edge of your seat guessing until the very end who the governor is…..Crikey what a read!

There are plenty of OMG moments and twists and turns….what more can I say but Kerry has nailed it, Now I cant wait for the next book.

Fantastic

Love these books by Kerry, l have now listened to two on the way to work on the way back home and evenings, warning once you start you can't stop, l get really annoyed when each book has finished.

Excellent sequel

I listened to the first in this series and enjoyed it start to finish, sometimes a sequel falls short but in this case definitely not the case. Without spoiling it for listeners the twist at the end is unexpected but with hindsight and only following the explanation given in the story there were very subtle hints dropped earlier. As usual an excellent performance by AA.

Felt like part of the action

I enjoyed this book very much, I liked the twist and turns and I actually felt like I was watching in from the outside but in real time.
