Steamy and suspenseful Favorite Quotes: “His apartment is a revolving door of dumb bimbos.” “You’re thinking so loud it woke me up, Lee.” My Review: I have a new BBF, swoon! Blake is precious, sweet, kind, protective, and multi-talented. Of course he could only be found in a book… Ms. Stookes has made a strong debut with her initial offering of a steamy and suspenseful mystery. She had intriguing twists and turns that I did not see coming, the humorous character interactions and teasing that I enjoy, and likable characters with interesting traits and quirks. I am eager to see what she has planned for her characters in the next book of the series Ultimate Deception.
Kylie is one tough woman! She suffered the tragic loss of her mom to cancer, her dad was killed in a tragic auto accident, and then she was thrown into the foster care system that failed her incredibly. She finally has a life she can be proud of and happy with, a husband, a job she enjoys, and is two months pregnant! What could go wrong? Fast forward a couple of months and she has the strength of Dani, Tristan, Blake, Sawyer, and Blake’s entire family to fight the newest demon in her life. She hasn’t seen Blake in ten years and there is a serious amount of chemistry there between the two of them. Does she really want to re-enter that memory? Blake broke her heart 10 years ago and is her heart strong enough to test the waters? I absolutely loved this book, so much that as soon as I got done reading it, I had to one-click it! My emotions were all over the place with this book; happiness, excited, raw, frustrated, angry, sad. This author did a great job throwing different scenarios at you then dragging you back into the happiness. The suspense in this book was just enough to keep me reading to see what was next, but don’t let that fool you! There are some incredibly hot love scenes too! The mix in this book was my type of perfect! I cannot wait to see what the author has in store next. I love that this book is part of a series that allows the books to be stand alone books and am incredibly glad she didn’t leave us hanging at the end of this book! I would definitely check out this book and make this a “go to” author when looking for new books to read!
4 star The story has laughs, pain, murder, suspense, betrayal, secrets, and heartbreak. I was pulled right into this story. The story flowed well and I was able to stay connected and interested throughout the book. This is Kylie and Blake’s story. After her husband is murdered Kylie moves back to her home town. Once there she reconnects with Blake. Blake is a local cop investigating a few murders in the town but was also friends with Kylie and her brother when they were younger. Now weird things are happening to all of the people who let Kylie down. They are all dying in weird ways. As the cops investigate they realize Kylie needs to be protected. But in the end will all the secrets and the real reason for the murders be the one thing that finally breaks Kylie down? Will the final showdown allow Kylie to heal not only her but also Blake? I felt I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a great read. I recommend this book and this author.
Loved this book! Had it all, romance, suspense and great characters. Dani and Sawyer's story can't get here quick enough?
