A very fast read, I dislike books that are written this way as it forces you to keep buying books. However, it's a good, solid book, Meredith Wild does not disappoint!

h my gosh, Part 1 of The Red Ledger is so brilliant! If this sets the pace and tone of the whole series, there are going to be a ton of happy readers. Although part 1 ends in a cliffhanger, the good news is part 2 comes out on the 29th of May,

Isabel Foster is a young woman trying to find her way in life after her first and only love went into the military and left her behind and never returned. She never heard anything from or about him after this. Although Tristan and Isabel were just getting ready to get out of high school, They were in love and Isabel loved him more than anything else; and she fought to keep their relationship going, he was her everything and now she feels broken.

Tristan Stone lives his life as a shadow, killing people for a living, and no one knows whatever happened to him. After getting wounded in battle he was operated on and in a coma for a while, and woke up not remembering the last 3 years of his life. He was given a new identity and everything he needed to start a new life, working for a well hidden organization. His newest job is to eliminate Isabel, which means nothing to him as he can't remember. The night he slips into her house he can hear her and then sees her in her bedroom and she is calling his name! This stops Tristan as he does not remember her, but she is familiar to him.He slowly backs out, he wants to question her first and see how she knows him.

That is all I am going to say as I do not want to give any more details. This is a fast paced, have to read all at once type book and I know you will be dying for part 2 like me "right now", I gave Part 1 5***** stars and am counting the days until part two!

The Red Ledger is the first book in a 9-book series (6 have already been published). It is a suspenseful, fast-paced, sexy read. This novella with its slowly unraveling mystery will definitely make you want to read the next books in the series. Meredith Wild's writing, as always, is really good.

I received an ARC of this novel from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Quick read about memory loss and a reconnection between former lovers.

Meredith Wild has done it yet again. She has created another series that sucks you in and you cant put the book down until you devour every word. This book has a sexy, alpha male thats mysterious and exciting to read about. Tristen doesnt know who he is but hes definitely sure that this woman knows. This book is action packed. Isabel holds the key to a life he wants to know about. The chemistry between the two is so strong and its definitely a sexy read. I cant wait to read the next part of this red hot series.

Very fast read. I read this in a matter of hours, and it was perfectly fine. I'm not sure that I'll continue with the series because there are many other books I need to get to. This one didn't have me overly excited to find out what happens, but that shouldn't deter others from finding out for themselves whether it's a series they would enjoy. 

*Thank you to Netgalley for the ARC.

A fast-paced opening to what I hope is a great series. Anxious to read the next book, so I can learn more about super-assassin Tristan and Isabel, his long-lost love.

It was a short read with an ok storyline. Ended abruptly on a cliffhanger, then I realised there are another 8 books continuing the story. I didn’t enjoy it enough to consider reading the rest of the series.

What a great starting book in this series, as we are introduced to Tristan and Isabel and the complex history they have together. Despite Tristan’s memory loss, I believe that he still deep in his heart knows who Isabel is. Oh, the old priest is such a good hearted man looking out for Isabel. This book leaves a lot of questions unanswered and makes you wonder what’s going to happen next to these two. Can’t wait to read the next book in this series.

I can’t wait to see what happens next to Tristan and Isabel! An intriguing, alternately steamy and edge-of-your-seat, this first portion kept me entertained and curious how the relationship with Isabel and Tristan would play out.

Thanks to Netgalley for an advanced readers’ copy!

If you love suspense and mystery and romance, this is a must read. I wasn't sure from reading the teaser that I would enjoy this series. Boy was I mistaken. Once I started to read this first part of the series. I wanted to figure out the clues. I wanted to unravel the relationships between the lead characters and understand how the past led to the present.

I thought this book was exciting, edgy and thrilling because I never knew what was going to happen next and what kind of trouble the characters were going to encounter on the next page. Having said that, reading books in installments has never really appealed to me as a reader because I’ve been burned too many times purchasing books that end in cliffhangers when the author/publisher never shared that knowledge with the reader before the first purchase was made. I read a complimentary copy of this book provided by Waterhouse Press through NetGalley and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

Sexy, hot, action packed story!! Tristan is a hitman for hire. He has lost a big portion of his memory due to an incident in the military. After recovering, he becomes a hitman. His newest target turns out to be a surprise. It's someone who knows him, but he doesn't remember her. Isabel is still very much in love with Tristan. She doesn't know that he has been sent to kill her. Tristan takes her away with him so he can try to find out about who he was before and maybe trigger his memories. There is still a lot of chemistry between them no matter how hard he tries to fight it. And that's just the beginning! This is a must read! Triple hot!!!

THE RED LEDGER: PART 1 is an action packed novella (116 pages) and in case you have not heard it ends in a cliffhanger. Cliffhangers are something I normally avoid, but all I read about this series had me giving in and trying it. I was truly surprised at how much I really enjoyed this novella by author Meredith Wild. I feel that though there are not that many pages to this offering, there is a lot of back story, enough to let you know what Isabel and Tristan had gone through and see them as they are now. 

THE RED LEDGER: PART 1 is an intriguing read with a cold, calculating killer, who just might or might not be all bad; a woman who believes that the man she loved might still be there; plenty of action, intrigue and many questions that you will need to be answered. A very good start to a serial that should stay with you long after you close the book.

Meredith Wild takes us on a thriller mystery of romantic portions in The Red Ledger series.

While it is a novella sized read it packs in a lot of drama and action.

Tristan has forgotten who he is. All he knows now is to follow kill instructions mysterious Jay sends him. Except his latest kill objective happens to know him. Happens to know his past and who he is. A man without ties is hard to predict except subconsciously he wants to know who he is. So he will find out by saving her life... even if it means putting his life in danger now.

It’s a quick paced read that is told in multiple POV. I hope there is a deeper meaning to all the coincidences in this book. Actions and motions seem to leap without much thought as to reason why and I had a hard time really connecting to the story. However, the premise and opportunities to explore are wide open to resolve in the next 8 additional books to the series.

I love Meredith Wild books. I mean her Hacker and Bridge series just blew me away. This one took some getting used to. I don't know what it was...maybe the fact that it's not a full book but a series of small books totaling up to one full book. I know a lot of authors are going this route, but I'm not a fan. I want to buy a book once and read the beginning, middle and end that said book.  The characters are interesting, if a bit young for me to be fully invested. Are authors really afraid to write a character over 30???  The plot has potential, but I really don't want to invest my hard earned coin in several installments. Sorry, but I'll pass.

Good start to this series, although it's not an overly long book. The basic story has been done before, and there's a good chance I'll check out the other books in the series to see how everything pans out for Tristan and Isabel.
