If you want to survive, you have to follow the rules…
Mikayla Morgan is wanted for her mother’s murder. She’s been on the run for almost a year now, avoiding not only the police but the real killer. Tired of running and desperate to clear her name, she breaks one of the most sacred rules: never return to the scene of the crime.
Every bounty hunter on the Eastern Seaboard is after the Morgan girl—but Shaun Denver and his partner snagged her. She’s a piece of work, and Shaun can’t decide if he wants to kiss her or kill her. When things take a sharp turn south, Shaun does the only thing he can think of to keep her close—he handcuffs them together.
As the danger mounts and the killer closes in, the chemistry between them threatens to explode. Shaun and Kayla will need to break all the rules if they hope to get out of this alive.

My English review
I heard several times about Jus Accardo but it’s true that I never tried one of her books so far. I did not read a lot of New Adult novels, but this book gave me the opportunity to return to the genre and I must say I took a lot of fun with it.
Kayla ran away a... ...more
This was a clever and captivating story, with a heroine who was on a fast track to nowhere thanks to a rather twisted childhood and the tragic loss of her mother. Mikayla’s life had been a covert operation of chaos, with her mom keeping them on the move in order to stay hidden from her past. But... ...more
I meant what I said. I like you. A lot. I want to get to know you…all of you. Every stupid little detail about your life. You don’t have to run anymore. You can give this a chance......more
Gosh, I just LOVED this book! I think this is Jus Accardo's best book yet, she just killed this one! Don't get me wrong, her other books are absolutely fantastic, but this one just takes the cake for me. Rules of Survival is filled with so much thrill, so much action, so much heat and I just coul... ...more
Review: 4 out of 5 stars
I’m a huge Jus Accardo fan so the moment I saw Rules of Survival on Netgalley it was an auto click! I devoured this book from the moment it arrived on my kindle, I loved the thrill ride we were taken on, the amazing characters and wonderful romance; it was one of those bo... ...more
Being on the run for a murder you didn't commit must be hard; but add in the murder is your mom and I can't imagine what that would be like. That's Kayla's life, and it sucks. When she winds up being caught by bounty hunters Pat and Shaun (!), things start to change up fast!
The action in Rules of... ...more

Rules of Survival is my second book from Accardo and this one pulled me right in just like Ruined did. The whole bounty hunter aspect is what caught my attention and something different. It center around Mikayla who has been on the run for a year now, and this suspect in her mother’s murder. Foll... ...more
I love Jus Accardo’s books. She writes such fast-paced, action-packed, sexy romantic tales. Whether it’s Cain and Abel descended twins or a bounty hunter shackled to his hit, I’m never bored.
And she also writes some strong willed women. Women who don’t let no man decide their life choices. Women... ...more
Suspenseful, with very likeable characters, that held your attention. You like Mikayla Morgan and Shawn Denver and they were an interesting couple. Especially when they try to discover the truth and stop a killer who just might try to stop them anyway they can. If you like fast paced action, you'... ...more

Love the characters. Love the plot. Love the banter between Mikayla and Shaun. Love this more than the Denazen series. ...more
It was more of a YA book. The story was good, though I did guess the twist beforehand. It would've been a 4.5 if the book had an epilogue ...more

I believe this may be the first standalone from Jus Accardo? She's been doing series and I love series because I'm a character based reader and this is why I love series. Standalone's just aren't enough time with characters I love but, this book is an... ...more
