Description

He’s death for hire…
 
Some people measure life in hours. Days. Weeks. I measure mine in kills. A covert military mission gone wrong robbed me of my memory and any link to my past. This is my existence now. I execute and survive. Nothing more, nothing less. I was ready to write Isabel Foster’s name in my ledger of unfortunate souls until she uttered the one word that could stop the bullet meant for her. My name.
 
She knows my face. She knows me. She’s the key to the memories I’m not sure I want back. Now nothing is simple. I still have a job to do, and my soul isn’t worth saving. I’m not the man she thinks I am. I can’t love her. And sparing her life puts us both in the crosshairs.

    Incredible book. I am a first time reader to this author and this book left me hanging on the edge of my seat. I have already purchased Red Ledger II! Recommend it highly for romance and adventure! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

    This book was constantly on my facebook feed as the next Fifty Shades. I know it’s only part 1, but I would think that a well known author would spice things up a bit more. I’m not really into either character yet, but I will continue on. I feel no chemistry here and find the story to be cheesy so far. I hope it gets better.

    Hold onto your seats folks because I have a feeling that we're in for one heck of a ride with Tristan and Isabel. SOOOOO GOOOOD. The Red Ledger part 1 is packed full of action, romance and mystery. Seriously love this. Isabel is running from memories and never imagined that the one thing she is running from will pop back into her life. Tristan may be a hired killer but there is so much more about him. He is a huge mystery and I can't wait to see how this series unfolds. Ugh I want to know more about Isabel too. You get just enough with this one to keep you wanting for so much more. The chemistry between Isabel and Tristan is just wow. A must read. So can't wait to see where Meredith Wild leads us with this one.
  • Great Book!

    Honestly I haven’t read a book by Meredith I haven’t like, but The Red Ledger is superb! It has far exceeded my expectations. Meredith has gone above and beyond on this one and I’m anxiously waiting on part 2. I am enamored with Tristan and I became wrapped in trying to figure out his story. I want to know more, that’s not entirely accurate, I NEED to solve this mystery. What really happened to Tristan? Who wants Isabel dead and why? So many questions and just a warning, once you start you will have to finish and it will leave you wanting more. Thanks Meredith for another late night of reading.
  • I loved every word of this story!

    Meredith Wild is one of my all-time favorite authors for a reason. Her books perfectly weave together unforgettable characters, consuming stories, and a palpable heat that is brought to life through her spectacular writing. I have loved each and every one of her stories, but what she has begun with this new series and what she has so exceptionally created in this first part is in a league of its own. The Red Ledger is one of the most addicting reads I have ever read. This book took me on one helluva whirlwind from start to finish, and made for one serious intense and consuming read that I could not get enough of. I loved every part of this story. I loved the literal fire it sent through me as I read it. I loved how it left me breathless at times. I loved that it gave me a story unlike any other I've ever read before. And I loved that it started what I know will be one of my favorite series. The first part of this series follows the suspenseful story of Isabel and Tristan. He's murder for hire, and her name is at the top of his list. Yet the moment he goes to do the deed, her breathless whisper of his name, his real name changes everything. You see Tristan and Isabel have a past, yet he doesn't remember any of it. She does though, and the more time he hesitates, the more he wonders about that past and the world of feeling that lays in that past that he can still feel the edges of. He also can't seem to stop thinking about her and wondering more about what he's forgotten. This story follows them as they set off on the run, as he tries to find the answers he seeks, and as she tries to see if the Tristan she loved all those years ago is somehow still in the man who was hired to kill her. Every word of this story will pull you in something fierce, and the more you get with these two, the more you will need more. Meredith Wild makes this world, these characters, and their story addicting to say the least, and she will have you beyond ready to see what will unfold in this new world and series. This world in this book and series is darker, its grittier and more complicated, yet there is a tangible and palpable fire that will pull your mind and heart into every breathtaking word. From start to finish this book will have you on the edge of your seat ready to see where that next turn of the page will bring you, and trust me when I say that you will be so enraptured by it all. The Red Ledger was fantastic. It was a phenomenal, quick, utterly suspenseful and fiery read that was intense as all get out and one of the most consuming reads I've read in such a long time. I loved getting every word of Isabel and Tristan's story, and I can't wait to see where those next chapters will take them both. Through every twist and turn, every action packed moment, and through every ounce of connection she created between these two characters, Meredith Wild created such an unforgettable read that I loved with all that I had! The Red Ledger is a book that will have you so in it all ready for more, and that is just part of what makes it such an incredible read.
  • Perfect Beggining to a great series

    I am addicted to this story. My heart is invested in these two characters, who have so much against them. They're both intricately woven with Meredith’s words and detail that you can’t help but fall. A perfectly written book that twisted my heart. Such an amazing story from a masterful mind.
