REVIEW: Best Laid Plans by Stylo Fantôme

Best Laid Plans (The Mercenaries, #1)

* Smuggle diamonds from Liberia to Morocco
* Make the trip in three days
* Don't get caught
* Don't kill each other
* Don't have sex with each other
* Don't fall for each other
Stick to the plan

This is the story of what happens when an unlikely bond is formed between enemies, causing tensions to rise, and igniting a chemistry that threatens to burn them both. Together, they'll learn that sometimes even the best laid plans can fail.

If this NOVEL were a MOVIE, it would have an R rating from the MPAA. Contains: Violence, Grisly Images, Strong Language, Nudity, and Graphic Sexual Content

5 "Bring the fire." STARS

Loved this! It was truly like an action-packed movie that unfolded on the pages! F*CKING FANTASTIC!!!
Liliana (lily) Brewster is one bad ass heroine. She's a transporter on a mission. She has a plan, a plan for revenge that's been five years in the making and it'll all come to fruition in 6 days.
Marcelle (Marc) De Sant is a mercenary. He's been hired by a Russian Bratva to steal diamonds from a Liberian gang. And then it's Lily's job, the gorgeous redhead that he's only just met, to transport them out of Africa and deliver them to the Pachkin of the Bratva in Russia. Marc has three days and then he's out. Of course, things don't go according to plan. All plans go to shit as all hell breaks loose.

“So much trouble for a bunch of rocks.”
Lily and Marc quickly go from acquaintances to an unforgettable one-night stand to enemies in a matter of hours as one's been set up and thinks the other had something to do with it.

These two were formidable together even when they were throwing punches and drop kicking each other.
“They were like magnets, fighting against each other one minute, then stuck together the next. Whatever it was, it was tangible, and powerful, and very real, and present.”
Along the road to hell, a hitman and friend to Marc shows up, Kingsley Law, and he just adds to this deliciously, action riddled tale! The dialogue between Marc and Law had me in stitches and the opposites of these two reminded me of my fav hotties from Cinemax's Strike Back (casting is a nod to these boys). What was also hilarious was Kingsley's flirting with Lily to the utter maddness of Marc.
This was seriously an action-packed adventure with guns, fighting, car chases, explosions, witty banter and bickering, and unbelievable off-the-charts sex! This was so much fun to read and I loved every second of it.

“His kiss was just like the man behind it; blunt, forceful and breathtaking. All her breaths, all her air.”

As much as they want to deny it, both Lily and Marc are drawn to each other...

and even though relationships are unheard of in the world they live in, they both explore the idea of doing just that.
You'd think as this draws to a conclusion, a little vacation would be just the perfect thing...
but instead we get an ending that left me spitting nails and looking forward to Lily's new plan for vengeance. I'm so glad I have Out of Plans because I'm ready to get down and dirty!
