Let me start by saying that The Taste Of Fear is completely out of my normal review genre. I usually tend to read & review erotic paranormal romances, so I wasn't entirely sure how much I was going to like this book but I grew up reading Stephen King, Dean Koontz & Clive Barker, so I was more than willing to give this a try... I will now be the first to admit that Jeremy Bates easily belongs on the list of my beloved horror, thriller & drama authors.. The Taste Of Fear started out with a glimpse into the world of an assassin and kept my attention until the very end. I literally could NOT put this book down. Mr. Bates is incredibly detailed & allows the reader to easily visualize the actual world as he sees it thru his characters eyes. I went thru so many emotions reading this novel. Anger, disgust, hatred, laughter, love, suspicion and then outright fear... It shocked me & kept me enthralled to the last page. He brought all of his characters into harsh, cold, real life, describing the true problems many people face with affairs, emotions, business, money & co-workers... As Scarlett & Salvador decide to try one last time to save their marriage, real life terror, in the form of a bombing & kidnapping invades their worlds..Not to mention, an assassin nipping at their heels.. One moment, I despised Scarlett & Sal and the next moment, I was wishing the best for them, feeling their hope, their love for each other and finally their fear... I kept imagining a happy ending, as all my books normally have... I was utterly shocked by the ending in this one.. And yet, I found it entirely suiting and incredibly satisfying.. This is one book you definitely need to read so you can fully immerse yourself into this very real, terrifying & fear filled world, brought to life by the amazingly talented Jeremy Bates... Mr. Bates is now on my favorite author list & I can't wait to check out more of his work. As I found out, even if a thriller book is out of your usual comfort zone, don't let that stop you from finding new worlds. Grab this book & dive into The Taste Of Fear...

This is the best I have read in a good, long time. The story's twists and turns keep you guessing until you read the last page and keeps you turning pages to the very last. You will not be disappointed in any aspect of this novel. Excellent character development and graphic descriptions of action make every detail come to life. The story keeps you cheering for the good guys and that makes for a story unparalleled by few. I now look forward to reading more by Bates. His writing is very much worth the time and money. Five stars.

The story was riveting, l couldn't put the book down. However, so much improbable action took part in the last few pages that it seemed as though the author had a longer story in mind and ran into a deadline.

Have to say this was a very good book right up to the last couple of chapters when it seemed like the author just wanted to end the book & couldn't figure out a good way to do it. Up to that point it kept me interested and wanting to read on. Will definitely try another book by this writer.

I thought this book would be cheesy, but it was not. Very well written and interesting story that keeps you engaged and does not have any obvious "HUH?!" moments. The characters seemed realistic.

I didn't think I'd like this one since I don't typically like assassin type stories or stories about rebels and such. Started off slow but once it got going, I couldn't put it down. It has characters that you should hate but by the end, you end up liking them. My only complaint and reason for not giving is 5 stars is the ending. I felt like I was left hanging, not knowing how it ends or that the author was rushed to finish it and just stopped. Other than that, it was a great read!

If you want a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last page - literally - then this is it. It is fast moving, full of action, and has so many twists and turns that you won't be able to predict what is going to happen. It was a terrific read!

I thought the book was well written. I’m not a fan of continuous blood and guts. It moved very fast though. Wish there was more interaction of the “good guys”.
