    This prequel to The Deadly (Kincaid Brothers) series is a thrill

    This prequel to The Deadly (Kincaid Brothers) series is a thrilling read that keeps the reader on their toes.
    RN Kaitlyn O’Reilly thought she had found love with a well liked and charming surgeon, but once engaged the good doctor became the stuff of nightmares and Kaitlyn hasn’t been able to find a way out.  Jock Kincaid knows that the beautiful – but engaged – redhead he met at a fund-raising gala is exactly what’s been missing from his life. When he finally meets her again, he swears that not only is he not letting her get away again, but to protect her from the deranged doctor bent on destroying them both.
    This steady to fast paced plot keeps readers on their toes with suspense, drama and romance.  The author paints such a vivid picture of each scene that the reader feels as if they are taking part in the unfolding drama.  The characters are strong, compelling and easily related to.  
    The attraction between Kaitlyn and Jock sizzles with passion and captures the heart of the reader. Kaitlyn has a strong personality, but becomes vulnerable to this madman and unfortunately the only way she can think to get out would be to give everything she’s worked for up, but she doesn’t want him to win and reader’s not only empathize with her, but can certainly understand where she’s coming from. Jock is a wonderful and charming character that reminds readers of a knight in shining armor.
    The tension builds as the doctor tries to have things his way, but the romance takes the reader’s breath away and brings tears of happiness to their eyes during a couple of scenes.  I love how the author ended the story with a look at the how the couple’s life turned out in the future which in turn teases the reader’s with glimpses of the other books in the series, which unfortunately I have not read… yet.

    Deadly Beginnings grabbed me from the first page leaving chills

    Deadly Beginnings grabbed me from the first page leaving chills running down your back. This is a book of a very serious issue that plague us still today “abuse”. Who would not want a hero like Jock, every abused woman in the world today would give an arm or leg to have a man like him coming riding in and take them away to a safe place. By the time you get to the end of this story you just go awwwwwwwwwwwwww with a big smile on your face, stars in your eyes, and you feel at peace with the world. This is a prequel of Jaycee Clark's Deadly series based on the Kinncaid Brothers what a wonderful way to start the series.

    The author touches on a very serious issues abuse, control and power struggle, why taking a very serious issue seriously but puts humor into it. In a very touching story Kaitlyn is taking her life back, finding the humorous side and learning to move on why dealing with a controlling ex that will not let her go.

    Kaitlyn is an RN who fell for the dashing Doctor Landon she thought he was every woman’s dreams come true. They got engaged he changed overnight becoming demanding and abusive. Landon will control her, she will become the wife he needs and he will do whatever he needs to, to make this happen. She will not be the one who got away like the others. What did happen to his other fiancés, where are they? Kaitlyn finds herself in a nightmare of abuse and cannot get out. Nowhere to turn, no one to help, who would believe her anyway Landon is an upstanding doctor everyone loves. All it takes is one night, one look across a ballroom and she finds her hero. Kaitlyn being both stubborn and independent may lose the one chance she has to not only get way from Landon but to start a new life and maybe a new love. 

    All it takes is one look across the crowed room for Jock to know he found the women of his dreams. Jock is use to getting what he wants when he finds out she is engaged it puts the breaks on or can he? She doesn’t look happy she only smiles when he dances with her. He doesn’t like how Landon is treating her but he walks away. He can’t get her out of his mind nor the way she was treated. She deserves so much better, on one lonely beach they meet again and he isn’t going to let her go this time. Whatever it takes she will be his.

    Oh the things we find out about Landon he is evil and no one knows. Jock will do whatever it takes to keep his lady safe. He will take Landon down and destroy his life if need be. He makes a powerful promise to Kaitlyn “As those before me, and my sons after will follow, the woman I'm blessed with and the family we'll share, to life and to death, this I'll defend”.

    The one issue I had with this book was Kaitlyn when it came to sex I just do not see a  virgin giving in to sex so easy not when she has been abuse. I just do not see her jumping his bones and taking control like she did. Besides this I found the book not only to be believable but a wonderful read.

    I could not have said it better then Kaitlyn “Life just throws you places, and if you wait, if you listen, you can see the blessings.” We are all blessed if we just look and listen.

     From the first page I was taken in I read up to chapter 2 before I went to bed. I had trouble sleeping due to the first pages in this book. It was not only chilling but scary. I did not want to put this book down. It was a wonderful outstanding book that when you are finished you are at peace. I have never read a book that at the end of it I felt like the weight of the world had been taken off my shoulders. I had the best night sleep in weeks. Ms Clark you have me hooked, looks like I will be buying this series, I just have to know what happens to all to Kaitlyn and Jocks sons.

    4 Stars: 

    Kinncaid family motto: This I’ll defend. Because nothing is more important to a Kinncaid than his family.

    The series revolves around the wealthy and powerful Kinncaid brothers, the women they love, and the strength of family ties. Each story blending the perfect balance of contemporary romance and a chilling, highly suspenseful plot that will keep you on the edge of your seat, dying to know just what happens next. And Deadly Beginnings, the prequel to Jaycee Clark's Kinncaid Brothers series, is a wonderful addition ... because before Aiden, Ian, Brayden, Gavin, and Quinlan there was Jock Kinncaid, the charismatic patriarch to the Kinncaid family, and Kaitlyn O’Reilly, the woman who captured his heart forever.

    Once again, the author blends sensual romance, danger, and a psychotically obsessed villain into a well-written story that will leave you cheering for the villain’s demise. My only complaint was that the story was missing some of the spine-tingling suspense I've come to love in all of the other books in the series, resolving the conflict with the deranged doctor a bit too quickly for my taste. Regardless, Deadly Beginnings is passionate story, with a satisfying HEA, about the one love that started it all. Content Warning: this story contains a near rape scene.
