You can read this book as a stand alone, but will appreciate it so much more if read in order. A very good murder mystery with plot twists and turns that make it not so predictable. I felt that even though it has its moments of darkness, it not any worse than what we see on TV. This author does a good job of developing her characters and leads you through solid police investigation so you are not wondering how they figured something out. I started book 1 less than a week ago and have now finished this book which is 3rd in the series. I don’t want to put the books down. On to book 4!

Repressed is the third story in Meghan O’Flynn’s Ash Park series and I think she has done it now … I have nothing to say but “she has arrived”, roll out the carpet! Repressed is THE story of Detective Curtis Morrison who we met in the first book and learnt more about in the second book … but still (zen) waters run deep … his checkered past seems to be catching up to him – his wife (who we also met in the previous books, the second book was her book) and baby daughter go missing and there is this sadistic monster that is ruling this nightmare that he has initiated to make Morrison to pay for the sins from twenty years ago… The story is dark, disturbing … it is very graphic, the violence, it leaves you shuddering… the way the writer describes addition, it blows your mind … the story is fast paced and you will get a mystery with its beginning, middle and the end! If this is your first book of the series, it will pull you in and you will want to read the other ones and I promise you, you should! I started with book four and now when I have also read the first three, I keep thinking about the fourth one and lamenting what I missed … I think it deserves a re-read!

Repressed (Ash Park #3) by Meghan O'Flynn was a dark, gritty psychological thriller, that like the past books in this series, had me hooked from start to finish. The third book is the Ash Parks series, we are once again tossed into a deadly game, and one that surrounds a main recurring character Curtis Morrison. Meeting him in the first book, and following him to see what he has become, and then this book. I feel like this was happening to a close friend. Man I should not be benign reading this series, but I can't stop. Not once I read the synopsis for this one and knowing that Cutis was going to be the next one to be put through hell. I just want to put him in a box, and put up a do not touch sign. I don't even know where to start. This book, was a lot harder for me because like I said I've been reading from book one. It would have been different if I was reading about a new character getting put through the ringer, but when it's one that's been there from the start, as a new bright eye detective, to now, married, baby.. it hits you hard. The writing does a great job at that, pulling you in, making you see boths sides. My heart was on the floor for most of this book. Meghan O'Flynn has a way with keeping the tone dark, gritty and has this way of just keeping the suspense, the mind games and the mystery high. And not just with the killer but with our MC as well. Cause we get to learn new things about Curtis, darker things. And as we have seen lately, your past is never truly buried. Overall this book, so far, for me, has been the darkest, twisted, and the most engaging/entertaining read of the series. As much as I felt like my heart was about to be boot/ㅋ***** across the room, I could not put it down, look away, or breath. This book, and this series is fast becoming a fav of mine, and possibly the best of the year. So yes, I give this book and series my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval. Happy Reading -E.A Walsh

Repressed by Meghan O’Flynn is the third book in her Ash Park Novel series and it just keeps getting better and better. Follow the same characters through more adventures, we get to see just how dark, twisted and psychologically thrilling that O’Flynn can be. This book gives the reader exactly what they are looking for, the flash backs, the grave danger, the killer’s point of view, and a great mystery to solve. Getting to see more of Petrosky, Shannon, Evie and Morrison still just warms me up. Petrosky really shines as a hero in this book which is a definite change of pace. The loyality and comradery that connects all of these characters together really made this a fantastic book as well as a series. While this book is in the middle of the series, I believe the characters really came alive in this one more than any of the other books. Getting to see the development from one book to the next I had a really hard time putting this book down. The creatures that go bump in the night in Repressed really will take your breath away, all while making it nearly impossible to sleep without the lights on. While Repressed is part of a series, I do think that it is possible to read on its own. The first two novels in this series are really setting the stage for Repressed, so I completely recommend reading all the books in order, as the character development really shines throughout.

Repressed was a great 5 star read and is book three in the Ash Park series. All I can say is wow, after reading this book, it was disturbing, dark, intense and twisted. Once I started I didn’t want to put it down. I was excited to get to know Morrison better in this book. He is newly married and a new dad on top of it. He had a serious addiction in his past that has caused some blank spots in his memory. When his family is kidnapped his past comes spiraling back. Will he be able to save them in time? This was a fast paced read that twisted me in so many directions. There is so much going on I don’t want to give anything away. The secondary characters added a great element to the story. I have to say I wouldn’t be disappointed if Roger fell off the face of the earth, I did not care for him at all. My emotions were all over the place and I was on the edge of my seat. Meghan does a great job with her writing and all the detail, she pulled me right in. You feel like your right there with the characters. If you love dark suspense this is definitely the book for you. This can be read as a stand alone. Warning: some scenes are gruesome and could be triggers for some.

Repressed- Meghan O’Flynn 5-stars Repressed is another haunting read by Meghan O’Flynn! It’s the third book in the Ash Park series, a series I would recommend reading in order as the series continues with characters that were introduced in book 1. This book, like all of this authors work, is dark, twisted, detailed, action-packed and so suspenseful. From the very first chapter I was pulled in, I read it in one sitting as all of the detail had me sitting on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t want to get answers to all of my questions. This book followed Detective Morrison, a character that had intrigued me from his first appearance and still does even after reaching the end of this one. Meghan writes with so much emotion and detail that I could picture Morrison’s brain spinning as he tried to decipher what was going on, which made it highly entertaining. I can’t wait to read more of this series and I would definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for their next crime read!

Repressed (Ash Park #3) By Meghan O’Flynn Rated 5 stars This one is not for the faint of heart. It’s a little dark and covers a subject not many people are fans of. While I enjoyed the story my heart was pulled out of my chest numerous times. Wishing this would happen or hoping that everything would turn out okay. I was Shocked....Disappointed....Sad and disgusted a couple times while reading. I think some of those is because I had such hope for Morrison and Shannon after Book 2. Then this book happened. Morrison has a huge monkey on his back. We learned about this monkey in the last book. To me it was interesting but yet sad being in the mind of an addict. The dark thoughts vying for drugs while the good thoughts try to overcome. Such a struggle. Will Morrison come out the other side a solid man or a troubled one? Each book gives us an insight to these characters. We see the good and the bad. Petrosky seems to be behind the eight ball with no desire to get out. He is a good cop who loves his new family. Hopefully they can keep him on the straight and narrow. Petrosky and “California” aka Morrison are amazing partners. They seem to help each other and their bantering makes the book a little lighter. Shannon while not having a huge part....has a huge part (read the book to understand). She is an anchor for Morrison as well as Petrosky. This is the third book in the series and is a good psychological thriller. I felt the story was a bit slow at first (getting the story set up) but as it moved forward I could hardly put this down. The characters are amazing. This author knows how to write a crazy, mind numbing, soul searching story. I can’t wait to start reading the next one after reading the Epilogue.

From the moment I began reading Repressed by Meghan O'Flynn, a quote from another author has stuck in my head. "Life is a storm. One minute you will bathe under the sun and the next you will be shattered upon the rocks. That's when you shout, "Do your worst, for I will do mine!" and you will be remembered forever.” Of course, that's Alexandre Dumas from his work The Count of Monte Cristo; and the moment I met Shannon, Curtis & Evie, it became clear to me just who would stand and shout. Repressed is a wild ride of suspenseful turns that will leave you holding your breath. Newly married Detective Morrison is faced with the sins of his past by the horrors of his present. Follow Detective Morrison through his past, into his present and stay while he discovers his future. Ash Park has cemented a place in my heart, brain, and soul for certain. NOTE: I was provided with an advanced reader's copy of "Repressed" by the author; this review is 100% my own.

This series just keeps getting better. Dark, disturbing, suspenseful, bone-chilling, and with characters you either love or love to hate, these books suck you into a world that feels terrifyingly real. Repressed is by far the darkest of the Ash Park series so far, and yet sweet at times -- Morrison and Shannon's love for one another is the epic kind that makes your chest hurt, and Petrosky's awesome but sometimes misguided championing of the underdog along with his unwavering loyalty to his partner make me wish he were a real-life person. The epilogue made the hair on the back of my neck stand on end. Cannot wait for book four.

The Ash Park series is THE detective series to read right now for a gazillion reasons: smart & unpredictable plots, complex characters you get to know very well, INSANELY RIVETING, can't-put-downable x 100, witty, tense, emotional ahhhhhhh I could go on and on. To say I'm impressed would be a gross understatement. O'Flynn is locked in as one of my new favorite authors.
