A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.
They failed. I survived.
Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.
Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.
Then she drifts into my life.
Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.
Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.
Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.
For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.
Two souls who’d survived hell, only to suffer the goddamn replays over and over.
you must never give up on love, because true love never goes away. It never disappears, only grows stronger.
Lucy had a traumatic past and her only solace is photography. She is fascinated with the old, abandoned buildings. She sees through the cracks and feels the lodge dissipate through them. But one act of carelessness and she is being chased by the ruthless men running the underground and the only way out is to run from them, from everyone.
Jase is many things, a thief, a killer, a survivor. He has his own demons. Life has never been good to him. Tortured as a child and witnessing the death of his only family as an adult has turned him into a shell of a man he once was. Tortured by his enemies and almost beaten to death he now only lives for one thing--Revenge.
I wanted blood. Their punishment. My revenge.
But who knew that seeking revenge would lead him to love. It doesn't take much time for Lucy and jase to collide in the dangerous world. They are strong and stubborn. They both are broken but together they complete each other. As the pieces fall into place, they realize that they can only survive if they are together.
You’re in my blood, infecting every dark part of my soul, Lucy. Nothing else matters to me.They will die to save each other. They will live to love each other. They will protect each other from the demons that haunt them. They will do anything to stay together.
I’d bleed for her. Kill for her. Die for her.~Jase
He’ll kill you, too. You die, I die. Remember?~Lucy
Told in dual POV , Backfire was simply amazing. It's the kind of book that breaks your heart and then mend the broken pieces together. This was an ultimate page Turner, Full of action and Earth shattering emotion.
Backfire is a story of retribution, revenge, sacrifices and love. This book gave me a hangover, I was continuously searching for the books resembling backfire but I didn't find any. So this was one of a kind. I totally recommend this. This is a must read.
Sometimes, though, shit happened for a reason, and plans backfired in the best ways.
