Overview

USA Today bestselling author Jaycee Clark is best known for her Deadly books, a series of romantic suspense novels featuring the very sexy Kinncaid brothers. But 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.

Kaitlyn O'Reilly, an RN, believed she'd found love with the charming and well-liked surgeon she'd met at work. Landon Goldburg was kind, attentive, and she thought they had so much in common. Now engaged, the good doctor has quickly become the man of her nightmares. As he grows more controlling and violent, Kaitlyn wants her freedom.

Jock Kinncaid can't stop thinking about the quietly beautiful--and engaged--redhead he met at a fund-raising gala months ago. He knows a spitfire lurks beneath the surface of this woman who's invaded his dreams, and he knows she's exactly what's been missing from his otherwise ideal life. When a chance meeting throws the two of them together again, Jock swears he won't let her get away this time.

But even as Jock vows to protect the woman he loves and Kaitlyn struggles to trust Jock and the passion between them, the deranged doctor is bent on destroying them both, even if it means killing the only thing he loves.

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.
