My Review :
Thank you so very much Enticing Journey Book Promotions for sending me a copy of Backfire!!! I’m very honored and grateful!! 🙂
5 Intense Backfire Stars!!
After hearing so many great things about Ms.Lake’s work I was so amncious to pick this book up! Holy cow this story was one heck of a dark ride! It had this grit to it that was so intriguing and different. I liked that this wasn’t a sweet romance and it was animalistic in a way. Survival was a must and hurting others was an afterthought in the world of Backfire. It was intense, bone-chilling, sexy, and very dark. I couldn’t turn away and I had to read it in one sitting because it was so addictive! There are so many twists and turns that I did not see coming! My jaw pretty much dropped during some points. I loved every second of this thrilling story! I can’t wait to read more of Ms.Lake’s books!! 🙂
Lucy was a character who lived and breathed photography. The way she saw the world through a lens was something so wonderful. She found beauty in the things that were otherwise unnoticed by others. Working as a graphic designer and seeing something she shouldn’t have led to her life changing forever. In my opinion she was a very relatable character and I felt as if she was an old soul. I liked that she was brave and would speak her mind as well. I adored her friendship with Craig. All I hoped for as things moved forward in the story is that she’d come out of things unscathed.
Jase Hawkins was a character who had a rough childhood. After two of the most important people in his life are taken away from him he is hell bent on revenge. He could be so ruthless and at times a jerk to the highest extent. It took awhile for me to fully like him but I did as I read more and more of his point of view. Jase never gave up and when it was set in stone that he was doing something he never backed down. My heart really broke for him after discovering everything that he had went through in his life. I only hoped that he would find peace in the end without the blood and gore.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a read that will hook you from the very beginning to the very end! It was a rollercoaster ride of a journey for the two main characters and during many parts I had no clue if anything would turn out right for them. It’s filled with things that will shock you and hold your attention. After reading about Dax in this book and how he was buddies with Jase I can’t wait to read his story in Ballistic!! If you haven’t already One-Clicked this book you are so missing out! Buy it Today! You won’t regret it! 5 Stars all around!! 🙂
