ARC REVIEW : A Day Makes by Mary Calmes
Mob enforcer Ceaton Mercer has killed a lot of people in a lot of different ways - he stashed the last two bodies in a toolshed belonging to a sweetheart marine researcher in an idyllic island community - but he's really not such a bad guy. Over time he's found a home of sorts, and he even learns he's found a place in the hearts of the people he works with...at least enough so that they won't put a bullet in his head because he's outlived his usefulness to the boss.
But he never thought he'd find one day could change his life, and he's about to discover how wrong he is.
Because in a single day, he meets the man who looks to be the one, the love of his life. It's an improbable idea - a man who deals in death finding love - but it's like it's meant to be. That single day gets weirder and troubles pile up, forcing Ceaton to take a hard look at his dreary life and accept that one day can change everything, especially himself. His future might be brighter than he expects - if he can stay alive long enough to find out.
A Day Makes by Mary Calmes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
If you're asking me, what's Mary Calmes really good at in this genre, it's when she writes this kind of story. With a mob enforcer, villains, guns, and the MCs sweetness in the middle.
I was blown away....
If you're asking me what a day makes? It's a lot. Remember anything can happen in one second?
A day is about 86.400 seconds, right? Then there's 86.400 opportunity of anything.
Okay, enough the math, it makes me dizzy already.
A mob enforcer, a former marine has to face some confusing moments in his life, about his boss, about his current job, as a baby sitter for the boss friend's son. Who's not a baby at all.
I liked this story, a lot. I enjoyed this especially the interaction between the two MCs.
You know what people says about Mary Calmes cracks? It is indeed.
A crack came with a cute botton nose, curly hair and a determined personality in tag.
So prepare for a surprise and a joy and a happy happy happy ending.
Couldn't say more than this, except, read this book, and you'll get Mary Calmes at her best, and probably will become one of your near future favorite!
