      3.5 starsThis book follows the story of Hoyt (a special forces operative who suffers from a severe case of PTSD) and Hayden (a former lover of Hoyt's whose brothers also serve with Hoyt). I did enjoy this book, but reading it as a standalone was not my best choice. There were SO MANY CHARACTERS that we are supposed to know about that I have to admit, I got lost at some points and had to refer back to see who was who. Hoyt was adorable and I truly felt for him. I do wish the author delved a bit f [...]

      Amazing! This lady can write. I think I made record time reading this book it was so good. (I made my husband wait for me to finish before I would leave the room.) I love Hoyt's and have waited to read his story for a bit now and was so excited to get my hands on it. I was hoping so much that it lived up to my expectations And it did with some to spare. His story is so heartbreaking and then it isn't. He is an amazing man who needs the love of Hayden to find his way back after being tortured. An [...]

      Ravaged River (Men of Mercy 6)Lindsay Cross4 starsOnce again Im brought in on number six of a series. GAH! You all know I am not of fan of that but I also wont put the book down over it either. This was a really good read and I was sorry that I had not read the previous five releases. There were so many characters that I wanted to know more about. Hoyt Crowe has been through the suck people and I mean since he was a child. Abused by his Uncle and Aunt, tortured by his cousins and dealing with th [...]

      I love Hoyt! Hoyt has been tortured and near death. He has been left with scars both internally and externally. Hayden is the love of his life and sat by his bed nursing him back to health and seeing past his scars. He is determined to push her away. She deserves better than the shell of a man that he has become. Hoyt’s group becomes a terrorist target which puts all of the people they care about in danger, including Hayden. He will protect her with his life.Hayden’s heart has been beaten an [...]

      I really really liked Ravaged River. It is part of a series, but can definitely be enjoyed as a stand alone. I didn't know it was a series until after I started reading and although characters from previous books make appearances in Ravaged River it did not take away from the story. It only made me want to go back and read the rest of the books so I can catch up with everyone of Task Force Scorpion.This reminded me of Lori Foster's Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor series. It's swarming with super [...]

      “Ravaged River” was not my “First Rodeo” with Lindsay Cross’s “Men of Mercy”. Even if I have not been following up the line of Books, it is still an easy enough standalone.At least once you read the first few pages. The story shows no mercy (pun intended) to reader. It paces at such a high speed that I felt almost out of control at times.I had to stop and take a deep breath at times before continuing. The story itself is as complex and confusing when it comes to the military parts [...]

      FUDGE ! What an book! I have binge read all of the men . And I can say I think Hoyt is my favorite. Why? He is broken yes, but he only needed the love of Hayden and he to me was put back together. No I don't think he is brand new. But I wouldn't want him no other way. It was a great book, and a hell of voyage. I am so glad I was able to read and devour these books. And Hoyt baby , you are my new book boyfriend. *wink*

      He thinks he doesn’t deserve the love of the woman he loves because he is broken. But the woman that he loves is going to have to be patient with him she is going to have to be understanding even though he tells her hateful things he does love her.This is the sixth book in the Men of Mercy series and one that broke my heart. I have to admit that I have only read the first two books and I have some catching up to do and I will be doing it very soon. Ravaged River was a very emotional story and [...]

      Oh my gosh! Holy cow! This story blew me away. I love love love this series, and I have been dying to get Hoyt's story. He has been awesome from the start, but I couldn't believe what he ended up going through. It changed him so much, but it didn't change his love for Hayden. His willingness to do whatever is necessary to keep her safe is the backbone of this story. Hoyt is changed. He is not the same man and never will be again. Hayden doesn't care. He stood by her through the worst crisis of h [...]

Hayden James knows that Hoyt hurt her because he himself is hurting and unable to cope with recent changes in this life. Hayden doesn't want to date anyone because she's in love with Hoyt.

      I came into this without having read the first 5 books in the series. It didn't even matter. This bookole my heart. As a veteran myself, this book had special meaning to me. I have utmost respect for our service men and I'm thrilled when writers can do them so much justice. Lindsay you truly blew me away. My heart was aching for Hoyt from the get go, so much so that I couldn't put the book down AT ALL!! Hoyt stole me heart from the beginning with his brokenness. I felt his pain through the book [...]

      Ravaged River was my first book by Lindsay Cross and I really enjoyed Hoyt and Hayden's story!! While this is the 6th book in the series, I was able to read it as a standalone. It had action, suspense and a great love story mixed into it as well. There was apparently a whole lot of action in the books leading up to this one, and I'd love to go back and read the others at some point. Especially to find out about Hoyt's past. I really felt for Hoyt and what he went through. This story starts after [...]

    13. Lisa Partridge on said:

      Lindsay Cross does it again! Ravaged River, the story of Hoyt and Haley has all the same twists and turns as all the Men of Mercy books you have come to expect. I loved the fact that Hoyt and Haley's story is so unique to them. Sometimes authors write series with the same core, girl meets boy, boy rejects girl, danger arises, boy realizes mistake, happily ever afterbut not every couple can be molded into that form. Hoyt and Haley have unique problems that Lindsay beautifully addressed. Wish it w [...]

      I think Hoyt and Hayden are my favorite characters so far from this series. This book is as good as the rest of this series. I loved it. I love all of Lindsay Cross' books. I would recommend this book and the complete series to anyone who likes Romantic Suspense. I can't wait to read the next book. ThanksLindsay Cross

      so what happens when not only your life is endangered but your friends and family and the love of your life . and what if it happens to be someone she knows but not very well . and why would they go after her and your friends and family find this and much more when you buy , read and review so can love overcome the beast . and can the beast allow himself to love and see himself as the one who loves him does or will love not conquer all .

      Men of Mercy Series, Hoyt.Hoyt is trying to come to term with his trauma and emotions after this torture, while trying to stop a terrorist group.He has turned away from everyone especially Hayden his one love.Great action,drama,intrigue ,angst and romance.A very good read.

    17. Holly Bargo on said:

      Great series, but annoying editing errorsI am really enjoying this series, however the improper capitalization, incorrect words, and confusion between plurals and possessives mar what would otherwise be 5-star books. The heroes are alpha without being arrogant, womanizing jerks and the heroines have spunk and backbones, even if they occasionally display moments of terminal stubbornness and emotional whiplash. That said, I recommend the series.

    18. Donna Purcell zappone on said:

      This series is awesome!!! These books keep getting better and better.This one follows Hoyt and his love interest Hayden. In one of the previous books you learn that Hayden has slept ( being drunk but she still did it) with one of one other Special Ops guys. So I had a misconception that she was a little ho. I'm nit gonna tell you that she is ur isn't but thus book is like all its predecessors as being very emotional and caring. It covers the topic of PTSD.Can't wait for the next one.

      Ravaged RiverAnother good book by Lyndsay Cross. This series of broken heroes and heroines who find peace and life with a love they thought they couldn't have. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

      Great!I love this book and this whole series. The characters are strong and wonderful but still "human" with their flaws. This book had great action scenes and drama and I always love the HEA.

      Ravaged RiverThis story was much better than the last. The hero was hurt & suffered from PTSD. Pushed his girl away, but she didn't give up on him. A big fire fight at the homestead & then HEA. Thumbs up!

      Review copy courtesy of the publisher via NetGalley.This is a new-to-me author and a new-to-me series probably not such a hot idea to start a book series at book six but no one ever said I had to be smart AND awesome :)First off, let me say that it was exceedingly difficult to start this series here. Hoyt, Hayden, Hunter, Ranger, Jared I could go on. I was, on one hand, thoroughly confused as to who the hell was who. But on the other hand, no one really mattered in this book except Hoyt and Hayd [...]

      Ravaged River: Men of Mercy Book 6 is by Lindsay Cross. This is another thriller and romance about the men of Mercy, Tennessee and the Task Force Scorpion. It is just as good as the rest. Hoyt Crowe did not feel like he was entitled to friends or love after the attack on him on Crowe Mountain three months ago. He had been tortured by his cousin and his cousin’s girlfriend. His brother Jared along with Sparrow had freed him and taken him to medical care. During his recovery, he broke up with hi [...]
