Deacon by Kit Rocha Release Blitz

Ana has trained most of her life to achieve one goal: to prove that anything men can do, she can do better. Now she’s Sector One’s first female Rider, and being the best is the only way to ensure she won’t be its last. Distractions aren’t allowed--especially not her painful attraction to the reserved but demanding leader whose stern, grumpy demeanor has already gotten into her head.

Deacon has spent the last twenty years trying to atone for his past, but the blood he spilled as a mercenary and assassin will never wash away entirely. If his riders knew the extent of his sins, he’d lose their trust and respect. It’s easier to keep them all at arm’s length, especially Ana. But his newest recruit’s stubbornness is starting to crack his defenses.

And their sparring matches are driving him wild.

The passion sparking between them can’t be denied, but neither can the vengeance barreling toward Deacon. When his old squad comes back to punish him for his betrayal, Ana and the Riders are squarely in the line of fire. The only way to save his people may be to make the ultimate sacrifice.

But first, he has to convince Ana not to follow him straight into hell.

Book #2 in the Gideon's Riders series was everything I've come to expect with Kit Rocha! The first book was good, but this one is fantastic. Previous books have already set up the world in Sector One, and the Riders have all been mentioned, so Deacon's story was quick to start.

Deacon is the original Rider – he's the leader of the group (not including Gideon) and he knows his men. Being at the top, though, hasn't given him the chance to really allow the guys to get to know him or his past. When his past has come calling, though, it's time for Deacon to face the life he left behind. Will the Riders accept the man he was or will they trust the man he's become?

Ana (oh I LOVE thee) – she's the first and ONLY female Rider. She's strong and fierce, but still is insecure in her position. Trying to live up to her father's legacy, she always feels judged. When impossible expectations are placed in front of Ana, she just fights harder to prove herself.

Ana and Deacon are a total kickass couple, literally. I could feel their emotions – the frustration, the passion. I couldn't put this book down, I honestly read it all in one sitting, it has everything: action, adventure, romance, mystery, and not a single dull moment. Did I mention the erotic scenes were explosively hot? They were scorching!

I can't wait for Ivan's book.

Deacon was perfection. This spin-off of the Beyond series is based in Sector One, the temple where Gideon reigns and his Riders protect the masses. The Rider's pledge their lives to Gideon and his followers and will die willingly to protect all. This means no long-term relationships and no children for the Riders, leaving no one behind grieving when they reach saint status by dying for the cause. It's a lonely existence, but one that Ana, the very FIRST woman Rider, knew going in. She's trained her whole life for this chance, and emotion, especially love, would never be in the cards for her. Until she's falling for the man in charge, Deacon. These two characters had chemistry up the yin yang and the first steamy scene between the two was one of the best I've read in a long time! The buildup, the longing, and the forbidden aspect were absolutely beautifully executed! Ana was vulnerable but strong, smart, and quick on her feet. My perfect heroine! Enjoyed the story cover to cover!
