Product Description

A SAINT.
A protector from evil. One who without fear will lead you safely through darkness.
LOS SANTOS.
Cold and ruthless. A CARTEL who cares only for revenge and glory.
My name is Nina Cross, and I’m the Los Santos’s newest prey. Determined to prove my partners innocence and avenge his violent death, I stumbled naively into the spider’s web. Tangled with lies and hunted for truth I was shadowed with each step I took. That was until one man, relentless in his touch and his desire threatened to bring me to my knees in ways I both craved and feared.
Jair Ruiz. Powerful, brooding and confident and not at all who he seems. He has me in his sights and has every intention of toying with his newest target while fighting to keep us both alive.
When the FBI turns it back on you and Los Santos cartel have already dug your grave, who is there left to trust?
Only one man. A saviour.
But if I look my saint in the eye and all I see is the devil…do I run?

“I’m not entirely good. I’m not entirely bad. But I’m enough of a little of each to ruin you.”

I AM YOUR RUIN

Wow Melissa Jane has done it again. Another fab story from her if you love a good Mafia read then this is certainly for you. It is actioned packed right from the word go. Murder, Sex(really hot sex), Betrayal, Revenge and Suspense. Yes it is all here for your enjoyment.

Nina Cross "rookie" FBI Agent is out to find justice for her partners murder. Although warned to GO WIDE,she decides to ignore the warning and digs deeper into the reasons why her partner was killed, thus putting a target on her own back.

Hiding in the shadows is Jair Ruiz, a man sent to protect her, to shadow her and not be seen.

Thinking that protection is not required, Nina decides to go on alone until coming face to face with a man pointing a gun at her. Of course Jair is there once again to protect her.

Is he a man who can be trusted, can you believe everything that he says to her. Is he a Saint or a Devil in disguise?

Just when you think you know where this story is headed, BOOM, everything changes. The suspense had me sitting on the edge of my seat and mid way through you could have knocked me over with a feather at the change of pace this book provided. (less)

Never Trust a Saint is a great first installment in the Los Santos Cartel story. It's filled with suspense, twists, action and LUST by the end you will be hanging for more.

Nina is a FBI agent wanting answers for a death others are trying to hide. Looking for these answers leaves Nina as a target and not just a small one, she is the target of a drug cartel. A dark mysterious stranger enters her life wanting to help her all the while telling her he can not be trusted. Still there is a pull to him, he makes her body tingle, she can't help but want him.

Jair Ruiz is there to protect Nina all the while warning her, her attraction to him and the passion they share is sizzling. On the run from those who are hunting her, she sides with the devil. Letting her guard down and letting her body take over. Jair Ruiz is a mystery and his words were true, you can never trust a Saint...

This story started off slow but held you with mystery. The attraction at the start did seem very fast paced, being an FBI agent and all. Nina isn't a strong heroine and often gave in too easily, I would have loved to have seen her put up more of a fight and become kickass. Overall, the mystery around Jair and his way with words had me wondering who this man truly was. By the end I was intrigued to find out what is store for Nina and Jair. They may have answers Nina was looking for but in the end it left an even bigger target on her head.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5+ Stars - I LOVED IT! 8 February 2016
By Escape Reality with Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Never Trust a Saint indeed…I can tell you if the Saints that came into my life looked like the man known as Jair, then I would trust him with my body! The things that man can do…sigh!

This book is freaking insane. I read it in 2 hours because I could not put it down, at all! It sucked me in and I devoured it. I needed to know what happened next and that desire just made me keep reading and reading until it was all done.

Cartels, FBI, bloodshed, murders and HOT sex. What more could you ask for? How about suspense, thrills, plentiful twists and turns that have you questioning who could Nina really trust? Who was bad and who was good and is there really such a thing as “good”. This book had it all!

This is definitely my favourite book from the author. She absolutely nailed it and I need it in paperback stat!

Never Trust a Saint is a 5+ star read for me. I LOVED IT SOMETHING FIERCE.

I was given a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 out of 5 stars A man with many names… 17 March 2016
By Stacey is Sassy (Stacey B-Reviews) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Well, that was a wee bit heart pumping. I just finished Never Trust a Saint in one day. I don’t get to read all day much anymore. You know the drill, life gets in the way, people to see, places to go, all the other stuff that gets put ahead of reading. But today, my little man went off to his first overnight camp. Of course, he’s not stressed at all. I hardly even got a goodbye hug from him. Bloody boys, don’t they realise it’s HARD. Mum’s worry. Anyways…I was a little bit sad. No tears mind you just an underlying worry that he might get there and realise he does miss me. I know Ha bloody HA…AS IF!! So, to distract me from my worry I started reading and boy did I get sucked in.

I realised quickly that I needed to have my wits about me. The pace is fast, the explanations come to you rapid fire and the names whiz by if you’re not paying attention. I don’t read books like this one very often and I was surprised how much I was into it. There are rival gangs, FBI agents and drug lords to keep note of. Borders and areas mapped out for distributions and places where productions take place. It was explained well, but at times I had to re-read to make sure I got it all straight.

Nina is an FBI agent who specialises in fraud and money laundering. She and her partner of a year Garcia, are good friends as well. When a tragedy happens and Garcia is killed, Nina starts asking questions. Unfortunately, she asks too many questions to the wrong people. Next thing she knows she’s the target of a drug cartel. It’s time for Nina to GO WIDE – AKA – Get the F#*K out of town.

Who can she trust? Who should she turn to? One man charges into her life when she needs him the most. Who is he? Who does he work for? Why is he helping her?

The man with many names is a bit of a ghost. He steps out of the shadows when Nina needs him, takes out the baddies when she’s at risk and carries her to safety when the bullets are flying. He also has one smoking hot body…and he knows how to use it. ;)

Nina and the man with many names at times seem like they are working together. Then it seems like Nina’s on her own fighting the world. I never really knew who were the goodies and who were the baddies and that’s a good thing. I liked the intrigue and suspense.

Never Trust a Saint was a fast-paced thrill ride from beginning to end. There are shoot em up, bullets flying, showdowns that were bloody and violent. Death seems to be coming for Nina at every turn.

There is an immediate attraction between the main characters that produce some very hot scenes. While we can’t always tell who’s side the hero is on, it’s pretty obvious that he struggles to stay away from Nina.

I enjoyed Never Trust a Saint and I was impressed with the authors work. This is the first part of a series and I wait with bated breath for the next part of the story to play out.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good 11 February 2016
By LBAS Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com

I've got to say the blurb of this book got my attention and throw in the eye-catching cover and I knew I had to read it.

Nina Cross is an FBI agent who specializes in criminal fraud investigation. One night her partner is gunned down while on the phone to her giving her a warning to run. Well, she doesn't run. She's devastated by his death and feels that the department head isn't doing anything to investigate her partner's death.

In the meantime, she'd met a man at a party who intrigued her. There was an instant sexual connection between them and his 'bad boy' look excites her. She sees the man again at he funeral of her partner. he's just standing at a distance watching her. No one seems to know who he is or cares which adds to her frustration.

So when her investigations into her partner's death leads her to become the enemy of the state and the target of a drugs cartel, Mr Stranger comes to her rescue. The chemistry between them sizzles but he isn't all that he seems and he does warn her to not trust him. Things go from bad to worse when she ends up in the hands of the cartel she'd running from. Will mystery man be her saviour or will he be the one to pull the trigger aimed at her.

I enjoyed this story on the whole. It is well paced and sprinkled with suspense, action as well as steamy scenes. There were moments that had my heart racing and moments that had me sighing with pleasure.

There were, however, some things that niggled. Like Nina. I wanted her to be stronger, feistier. For example when she gets home and finds a stranger in her house, she should've at least struggled with him instead of giving in the minute he touched her and allowing him to have sex with her. I mean, seriously, where was her sense of self-preservation? And this pattern repeated itself on several other occasions, which was how she ended up in the hands of the cartel. I do understand lust at first sight but she was a little naive for an FBI agent.

This is still good. There's enough danger, intrigue, corrupt agents and dangerous drug lords to keep me turning the pages. I'm happy to recommend this to fans of romantic thrillers. But be aware that it ends in a cliff-hanger.

3.5 “I am your ruin.” Stars!

The Review:
This read was definitely an unexpected and pleasant surprise. When the author contacted me and asked me to review her book, I was sucked in right away by the blurb. It sounded like something I could get on board with and I wasn’t wrong. I really enjoyed this read. It had action, romance, intrigue, suspense and it was well written with a flowing and solid story. I loved that the author spaced out the reveals, leaving you wondering who was good, who was bad and who was trolling the grey lines. Though the beginning was a bit slow and took me until the third chapter to really get into it, it quickly picked up and kept right on spinning until the very end.

Nina Cross is a rookie FBI agent. Her partner and best friend is killed, leaving her with a warning and a mystery that’s pulled her right into the cross hairs of two cartels, her own agency and a perfect stranger who both terrifies her and consumes her.

Nina soon finds herself on the run and soon after that, kidnapped. It’s one mishap after another for her and she really has to find her inner strength and bravery to survive the harrowing events that she’s found herself in. She doesn’t know who to trust and those she thought she could trust, leave her reeling and in situations she might not get out of.

Nina and her “perfect-stranger” have great chemistry together and I found myself really pulled into their romance. I do think it was played out to quickly and their insta-romance needed more time to evolve, especially considering the circumstances they were in and the way he presented himself, but it was fun to see how it all played out. The perfect-stranger was a mystery and you never knew what his angle was. The author did a fabulous job with his character, making you second guess everything. And in the end, you’re still not sure who might be betraying who.

Along with the insta-romance, there was one other thing I wish had been sussed out a bit more. It was said two or three times in the story that Nina wasn’t cut out for being an FBI field agent, and on that note, I will have to agree. Though I liked her character, she seemed fragile and naive. She’s had training and she has instincts but she seems to ignore all that when it really counts. No sooner had she met her perfect-stranger, than she fell into bed with him, knowing he was setting off alarms inside her. Throughout their trip, she didn’t question him nearly enough and let her libido take over when common sense should have prevailed. Also, there were times when I wanted her to be tougher than she was. I think her character could have really been one of the “kickass” heroines I love, if only she cried a bit less, was snarky a bit more and wasn’t shocked as much. Don’t get me wrong. She was a great heroine with tons of courage, and the situations she was in would have left me a sniveling mess on the floor crying for my mommy, but I wanted HER just a little more tougher than she was. By the end, I think she was starting to really find the voice I wanted her to have and I look forward to seeing where the story takes her and her perfect-stranger.

This book doesn’t leave off with a huge cliffy but there’s enough left unsaid that you can’t help but want to move on to the next book immediately, and I loved that!

All in all, this was a very enjoyable read that left me wanting more. It might have been my first book by this author but it certainly isn’t my last.
