RATING: 4.5 LOGAN STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

They took too much.
Left too little.
I had nothing to lose...until him.

*****************

~Lana~

I didn't expect him.
I didn't want to fall in love.
But I can't let him go.

Logan Bennett makes the world a safer place.
He's brilliant.
He's a hero.
He locks away the sick and depraved.
But while he's saving lives, I'm taking them. Collecting the debts that are owed to me.

Ten years ago, they took from me. They left me for dead.
They should have made sure I stayed dead.

Now I'm taking from them.
One name at a time.

I've trained for too long.
I've been patient.
I can't stop now.

Revenge is best served cold...

They never see me coming, until I paint their walls red.

Logan doesn't know how they hurt me. He doesn't know about the screams they ignored. He doesn't know how twisted that town really is.

He just knows people are dying.
He doesn't know he's in love with their killer.

No one suspects a dead girl.
And Logan doesn't suspect the girl in his bed.

They're looking for a monster.
Not a girl who loves red.
Not a girl in love.

I'm a faceless nightmare.

At least until I tell them the story they've pretended never happened.

But in the end, will Logan choose them? Or will we watch them burn together?




BOOK REVIEW :

Nodding, I let him shut my door, and I crank my car. I have two kills to plan, a boyfriend to see and a best friend to un-piss off. 


And not in that order.



I’m just the typical American woman.




I was feeling like a shorter read as I have been reading four hundred and fifty page upwards books.

I saw this one was for #free. It still is at time of this posting. (Click on the #free)

I don’t care how long a book is, because some thick books are filled with so much filler that I can have trouble getting through them. 

This one is only 107 pages. I love a short book that feels long.

Have I read before where the basis for the plot is, the female lead goes on a revenge killing spree of many male characters who took part in her death, or what they thought was her death and she comes back with many surgeries and looking different?

Yes.

But, damn if this wasn’t a good read.

Sure there were parts that I felt were quite set up from an author point. What I mean was the likely hood of coincidence in some things was questionable, but that didn’t deter from it being a book that flowed very well.

The violence is quite clever, because although the author is telling you, more than showing it actually happening in detail, your mind will imagine, and that is where you get the gahhh. She will lead you in with some, but you will take it on in your head.

I am not sure how I feel about not actually being told what fully happened to the female lead in this installment, for her revenge to be so absolute and precise with what she does to each of her kills. We get hints, we get scars, but I wonder if I will find out actually what happened? We get teased with pieces. I think I would have preferred to see or understand in my mind what happened to her in this first book.

I really enjoyed Logan's character and thought him very intelligent and I also felt Lana was intelligent too. But this doesn't stop the heart making you do stupid things that can cause your downfall.

The profiling part of this book was interesting and made me think about watching other people and seeing if I could profile them. How accurate would I be?

I thought this was a very good 100 odd page book. I am keen to read on.

I have read a lot darker, but that is up to the reader and what they think is dark for them.

I really like all the characters.

A tangled web is forming.

A train wreck is inevitable.

I highly recommend.
