ARC Review: Intrepid by Keri Lake

36469504
In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks. 

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunted my nightmares took everything and everyone I loved, I feared I’d never be free of the darkness. 
But that's the thing about fear. Over time, it breeds anger, and when anger fills the box, vengeance bleeds out. 
It's been almost a decade since I escaped their hell, staying in the shadows, hiding my demons, and God help them now that I've tasted retribution and crave more of it. 
Blood is the price for pain, and I vow to take everything and everyone they love. I’m no longer a frightened boy, but the intrepid vigilante, a ruthless executioner, who will stop at nothing to punish the depraved few that stole my life and walked free. 


The plan is perfect, except for her. The one woman I'm forbidden to have, whose soothing touch settles my fractured mind. My angel of mercy sent to silence the voices. Yet, not even she can save me from the black void wherein my skeletons lie buried beneath the truth. Because in order to feed my thirst for revenge, I have to destroy the very thing that gives me purpose. 
Tooth for a tooth, heart for a heart.

"She made me reckless. Fearless. Intrepid."

So here is one more addition to Ker Lake's amazing broken yet deadly heroes and strong yet passionate heroines. And just Like Keri's other books, this one was damn intense too, it even gave me goosebumps at certain points along with some few unwilling tears.

But I liked it!!

Ty (Jameson Tyler) is out for vengeance against what was done to him and his family. He is no hero, not a good man. He is a ruthless murderer with a traumatic childhood but a victim is not always innocent and a criminal is not always a fault. Once he was just a good kid, now he is everything you stay away from.

"...they'll all eventually suffer for leaving me cold and trapped in darkness for so long."

Enters Sera (Serafina), daughter of a criminal defense lawyer. She is not new to trauma.She has had her own share of torturing but in order to forget the past, she has moved out of the clutches of her father and into Detroit, unaware of the dangers that follow her in shadows. 

"I was trapped, and hell if I didn't know what trapped felt like."

When they meet the sparks fly, instant attraction but hidden agendas coz everything is not what it seems to be. 

“We were fated to hate each other.”

It all started with obsession, with the feeling of revenge, with a hidden agenda but somehow it turned into more.

“Obsession had become my sickness, the wicked venom in my blood that only she could cure.” 

Friendship, love, betrayal, and heartbreak. Passion and compassion. Laughs and tears. Their relationship experiences everything, all the extreme emotions, but somehow they got stronger together.

“Like light and dark, fire and water, the moon and the sun trying to come together. We didn't mix.”

Intrepid for me was a really intense ride. It was a mix of past and present going on simultaneously. The book was full of raw emotions. 

It started on such a serious note. From the very first page, I was sucked into it. The only thing that really got to me was that I was unable to connect to the characters for the 30% of the book but after that, it got better. 

There was just so much going on in the book that it was just unable to connect to the characters in the very beginning. I loved the plot build up and the leads, but I would have loved a good epilogue even more. I mean all of us love a sneak peek at the future life right? But overall it was a very good read.

Recommended to everyone who wants to read something edgy, sensual and thrilling.

BOOK REVIEW: BOUND BY VENGEANCE(born in blood mafia chronicles #5 ) BY CORA REILLY

Growl
He’d never had something to himself, never even dared to dream about owning something so precious. He was the unwanted bastard son who’d always had to content himself with the leftovers of others. And now they’d given him what only a few weeks ago had been out of his reach, someone he wasn’t even allowed to admire from afar, one of their most prized possessions. Thrown at his feet because he was who he was because they were certain he would break her. He was her punishment, a fate worse than death, a way to deliver the ultimate punishment to her father who had displeased them so greatly.

Cara
She had always been the good girl. It didn’t protect her.
She didn’t know his real name. People called him Growl to his face and the Bastard behind his back. Both were names he couldn’t possibly have chosen for himself. His eyes were empty, a mirror to throw back her own fear at her. He was a brutal hand of the Las Vegas Camorra.
And now she was at his mercy.

BOOK REVIEW: CROWN OF LIES (crown of lies duet 1) BY PEPPER WINTERS

Noelle Charlston lives a fairy-tale life: a doting father, a powerful job, and a future blessed with financial security. 
However, two meetings with two men changes her happy existence forever. First, she meets the man who makes her heart sing. Three years later, she meets the man who makes her blood quiver. 
Broken-hearted from a teenage romance, Noelle’s freedom is no longer hers. It belongs to the stranger her father believes is her perfect match. The stranger who pulls his lies over everyone he touches.  Including her. 
Seduced and manipulated, Noelle gives into the mysterious Penn Everett. The lies he spins, the truth he hides, the mystery he weaves—it’s all enough to slowly erode the woman she is and turn her into something else. 
Until her past collides with her present.  And it’s her turn to lie. 
To everyone…including herself.
