Book Review – The Fighter by Leslie Georgeson

The background: The Dregs are the soldiers, captured in childhood, experimented, mutated, injected with more animal DNA than human, then sent to war fronts but when injured, they are to be killed by the General. But 9 Dregs escape and are in hiding with a huge bounty on their heads. Gordon, the nicest of them all dies in book 1, so there are 8, and this is their story…

Fighter, one who can become a ghost, a phantom and fight his enemies by moving so fast that he is nearly invisible. He is the second dreg to enter my life and boy, did I like him so!!

The story goes thus; Jacob needs a nanny for his daughter Hazel, only Anna answers his ad and soon starts living with them, giving a sense of normalcy to this family. To protect his daughter, he had to betray his dreg brothers and leave them, but soon Hazel and Jacob are kidnapped and Anna has to find the rest of the Dregs and persuade them to help…. And the story rolls on with action and twists….

My second book by Leslie Georgeson, had me sitting at the edge of the seat wanting Jacob to be rescued and his dreg brothers forgiving him, helping him. The action scenes were the ones which caused my adrenaline to overflow, and Leslie’s writing had me longing for more. Guns, grenades, fight moves — what more could my ‘peace loving’ heart ask for?😉😉

Leslie’s innate storytelling talent pulled me right into the depths of the story, there was the right amount of suspense and thrill. Her twists left me gasping, and I love it when a book has me turning the pages fast. This story had an endearing father-daughter bond which went over and beyond everything to connect with each other. I loved the way Jacob could telepathically calm his daughter. The cute Hazel was really her father’s daughter. Read the book to know what this cutie could do.

Then came the heat factor, the sensuous scenes that Leslie wrote had me squirming with bated breath, they were hot and literally could have the steam rising from them. Fabulous!!
The book had romance, action, and thrill; all that I needed to read it in a single sitting.

What can I say…

They are the Dregs and I love them all and that’s all that matters!!

I downloaded the digital copy from Kindle unlimited, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!!

My dreg name is The Fighter. I’m an expert in mixed martial arts. I had to betray my dreg brothers to protect my child. I’m a traitor now. An outsider. So I keep my distance from them. Hiding in the shadows.

But I have more important things to worry about than trying to win back their trust. I have a five-year-old kid to take care of now. She scares the hell out of me. I don’t know the slightest thing about kids. I need a nanny to care for my daughter. So I place an ad and hope that someone will reply.

The woman who responds is not what I expect. She’s young and gorgeous and way out of my league. But she’ll have to do, since I have no one else. I try not to want her. I try to keep my distance. But she is pure temptation. And I’m falling under her spell.

She doesn’t know that working for me puts her in danger. She doesn’t know who or what I am. And I plan to keep it that way.

Because the truth could hurt her.

And so could I.

Publication Date: 1st May 2018
