REVIEW BY ALEXA
You know how it feels when a sequel is everything you want and even more? Yes, it was what I’ve felt when reading Backfire. Keri Lake certainly has great talent in this genre and in the future, I wish she would write more dark romance.
I wasn’t able to let go this book from the beginning. Jase Hawkins, a broken shell of a man. Destroyed by the world. A thief. A murderer. A selfish prick with a single motive of survival. But some sweet moment could not cover up the quality of this badass guy. Calm and kinky are forced by circumstances to become criminals since childhood.
Lucia is a brave girl and very attractive. She was poor but not pathetic, smart, creative, feisty, and full of surprises. She challenge Jase in every step, made him out of focus but also the true anchor of his messy life. I liked to sew how their chemistry build together. How conflicts strengthen the bonds between them. Their destiny are already established long before their first meeting.
“Lucia saw beneath Jase’s mask, beneath the bones and flesh, and yanked at his soul like a beam of sunlight fighting its way through murky waters of swamp.”
Backfire is the type of story you want to read slowly. Savoring every words, twist, steamy tension, full action package, intrigue and heart felt romance. Beside the early narrative was intimidating, too many characters name and too detailed informations in this book, Jase and Lucia’s story will make you hold your breath from the first moment.
