EVERYTHING I DO (Outlaws #1) by MC Frank

Robin Hood is about to steal your heart.
A robber and a princess.
A girl disguised as a boy.
A medieval reimagining of the legend of Robin Hood packed with adventure, sacrifice and romance.

Robin Hood, hidden deep in the Sherwood Forest, is fighting to restore the crown to its rightful king, surrounded by faithful friends, green leaves and clear skies. Burdened with secrets, betrayal and an incredible responsibility, he struggles to stay alive and keep the starving people fed. One day, a boy saves him from the Sheriff’s poisoned arrows. Robin, impressed by the slender youth’s courage and skill, takes the boy with him to the forest.

Only, the boy is not a boy.

In the castle of Nottingham, a maid who used to be a princess is forced to obey the wishes of a tyrannical Sheriff. She dons on male clothes and trains to become a fierce assassin, vowing to catch the greatest criminal in the kingdom. But when she saves Robin Hood’s life nearly losing her own, she is rescued by the outlaws.

When Robin and the “boy” meet, two worlds collide, resulting in unimaginable danger and intense romance. Who will survive when they learn each other’s secrets? What happens when the assassin falls in love with her victim?

Filled with danger, intrigue and slow-burn passion, this is a Robin Hood story unlike any you have ever read before!

Micky’s 3 star review

I’m always interested in a retelling and Robin Hood contexts are few and far between. Add this to the gorgeous cover for EVERYTHING I DO and this was definitely something I wanted to read. I like it when retelling flip preconceptions on their head a little and this story did just that. Robin and his band of brothers were as expected but Ru, the main protagonist in this story was not what I expected.

This was a story of lies, deception, revenge, pain and integrity. The alternating POVs were welcome. It took me some time to know Robin, his intentions and motivations. I was interested in the story but I didn’t always relate to the style of explaining everything in detail or completely believe the tangibility of the romantic connections. Sometimes I felt like the story went round in circles but the story did unfurl, finally revealing some answers but leaving the reader with questions.

All in all, it was a clever story with interesting characters and there is more to come with book two on the way.

Thank you to the author for a review copy.
