Twists and turns. But I felt like reaching the ending before I actually got there
This book was amazing. Reading the description of the book I knew I would like it but it was so much better than I expected. Kayla is a girl who loves to teach people a lesson. She only hurts those who hurt others. Guys who think that they can do whatever they want the girls. She takes care of them so they can’t hurt anyone else. Kristy is a girl who mainly keeps to herself and studies. Her parents died at a young age and she was raised by her grandmother. Kristy meets a detective named Kai and they start dating. This is when things started to change for Kristy. This book is dark and how many, many twists and turns but it makes for a fantastic story. I didn’t expect the last twist at all. I can usually tell where a book is leading but this one kept me guessing and I loved every minute of it. I like dark and dangerous books. Kristy is this sweet innocent girl who falls in love with Kai. He would do anything to protect her. He loves her so much. It tears at him to have to do some of the things he has to, but it is for own good in the end. Kayla is dark, dangerous, and seductive. She has no qualms about killing it is what she does. She works for a man named Tyke. He is a detective as well. She has the idea that the men he sends her after and the ones he can’t get the legal way. Not enough evidence or the women won’t talk. Either way she is more than happy to put an end to them. I don’t want to give any spoilers away so I won’t say much except that you have to read this book. It is fantastic. I will be looking for others by T.L. Smith. The book for fantastically written and the characters were amazing. I was given this book in return for an honest review.
** this book was provided for free for an honest review** Don't let the blurb scare you! I was honestly debating not reading it at night but I did in fact read it all in one night! This book is full of dark and twisted turns but I absolutely loved them all! This book flips back between the two main characters Kristy and Kayla. Kristy is the shy, college girl who keeps to herself and only wants to do her best in school. Kayla is dark and loves to punish those who have hurt others. They both lead separate lives but have so much in common. Tyke was also a nice mystery and provided Kayla with her "jobs". I LOVE KAI! He is strong, demanding but so sweet and understanding. T.L Smith is now one of my must read authors and I can't wait to read more of her work.
***Full of twists and Surprises - Loved it*** Pure punishment - Review By Kat Smith for Kats Book Promotions/Katsindiebookblog Copy Gifted for honest review for the release tour. How can I describe this book? It's been classed as a dark romance, but I think it could also be described as a suspense or thriller since it has crimes & detectives in it. At first it comes across as being a salacious story with sex and death in it but it's really much more than that. To say what it is about would really spoil the book for you. So I really hope that reviewers do not give the game away. At this point in the review I'm 75% through and have had an idea what's happening for a while now, but ms Smith has written the plot with enough to keep you guessing for the majority of half the book. I am not a fan of books that glorify criminal activities for the sake of titillation, but when its centered around the characters then I enjoy it even if the subject matter may be a bit hard to take, and I am - I could not put this book down - I was up to 75% before the Hubby demanded I turn the light off! This story is about the characters and how they cope with the circumstances that they have been put into. I empathise with the female characters and why they are like they are is quite understandable. Ms Smith has taken a subject that could quite easily been written salaciously to appeal to whats become popular in some circles, and I know that this book will appeal to those readers but in actual fact she has written it (in my view) that's more about the characters involved and how and why they cope with it the way they do. There are twists and turns and situations that will keep you engrossed enough that you will keep snatching it up when ever possible... I offered to get up and look after my grandson at 5am so I could finish the book! TL thanks for giving Kai his HEA! I know of one reader who said after seeing the teasers that she didn't think it was a book for her, but as I have tried to put across above, if you like a story that's about characters finding their way in a world that's unfortunately not a fairy tale but in the end get their HEA, then give this book a go and you may find you do actually like it, you get to try a sample on amazon before buying so what's stopping you giving it a try? For instance, if enjoyed the book Violet Addiction By Kirsty Dallas, you will also enjoy PURE PUNISHMENT. If you have not read the above book you are given a sneak peek of Violet Addiction at the end of this story which I loved also :D Australia has a lot of Author talent coming forward and I am very honoured to get to help them promote their stories on my Blog, and to meet them at Signings.
Holy f**k! I don’t think I can form the right words to express how much I loved this story. T.L. Smith did such a phenomenal job. The story flowed so flawlessly and the characters were perfect. It’s disturbing yet refreshing because this story is so unique. I couldn’t put it down. I was sitting at the edge of my seat. Talk about twist and turns, being confused and expecting the unexpected. My mind kept bouncing around with all these different scenarios that were to come next and yeah……no. It was so unpredictable and I loved it. T.L. Smith, you simply blew my mind with this one. I loved every thing about this story. Definitely a great way to start off the New Year with a fantastic 5 star read!!!
