Release Day Review: Saint by J.B. Salsbury

Milo sold his soul to the devil to save an angel.
Now he’s after revenge.

There are worse prisons than the lush estate of a notorious drug smuggler in Mexico. Mercy lives out her days alone and hidden from the world, but her sleep is riddled with nightmares of the muti and all the boys and girls just like her who weren’t lucky enough to get away.

If the people who kept her as a child are in Mexico, is it possible she could find them?

What starts as vigilante justice unravels a web of human trafficking deeper and darker than Milo and Mercy could’ve imagined. When she comes face-to-face with the people she once considered family, she proves she is far from the Angel they raised her to be.

Saint is the sequel, and must be read after Ghostgirl. So I want to warn you that this review could contain spoilers!

"In order for her to be free of the visions that torment her, for us to move forward together, I need to help heal her soul. There's only one way I can do that. She needs retribution. She has to bury the monsters from her past in order for her to find hope in our future."

After finishing Ghostgirl I couldn't wait to get my hands on Saint. I initially thought that GG was a stand-alone, but was happy to see that Milo and Mercy's story would continue in Saint. There was no way the author could tell their story in just one book, so I appreciated her taking the time to fully tell the story. This book is about Mercy finding out where she's from and having to deal with the consequences of the actions they took in the first book. Milo is one of the most dedicated heroes I read in a very long while. Everything he did, he did for Mercy. Even though it sometimes meant he had to lie and hide things from her. Mercy is very curious and obviously wants to know what is going on. After leaving on prison, she is in another one, and as the days pass it gets harder and harder for her to cope. She needs answers and that results in her doing something that puts her in harm's way. Her action put me on the edge of my seat, I was so tense and nervous to see what would happen next.

"I went from Milo the high school senior foster kid, to Emilio Vega, son of Esteban, prince to the LS-active gang member, drug and gun smuggler, and enforcer."

Saint is a perfect continuation/conclusion to Milo and Mercy's story. I wouldn't change a thing about this book. It had me on such an emotional roller coaster, which was the reason it took me longer than usual to finish this book. I really wanted to savor everything and not just sprint to the end. Even though Mercy and Milo are young, their love was so strong and real. I could feel it through the pages, and I really wanted them to get their HEA. Saint was emotional, suspenseful, action-packed, sweet, and very hot! This book was original and very dynamic. Even though the first quarter was a bit slow, it didn't bother me at all. It gave me time to get to know the characters even better, and see how they were growing in the situation they were in. I wouldn't change anything about this book. I wanted the story to never end, because I love the characters so much and I didn't want to say goodbye. I really hope that other characters in this book will get their own story. J.B. Salsbury is one of the few authors whose books I'll blindly pick up. She is amazing and a phenomenal author.
