Review: The Risk

The Risk The Risk by S.T. Abby
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy mother of craziness! This book!
When I was offered the chance to read a book by someone called S.T. Abby, there was absolutely no way I could turn it down, I mean, how cool is that name? And then when I started reading... let me just say, the series title is very fitting! It is well and truly a mindf*ck!

I devoured this book. Any chance I got, I was reading it. It's so good! I don't really know what to say about it without giving too much away, though the blurb says a lot as it is. What I can say, is that I can't wait to sink my teeth into the next installment!

I love the way the author divulges little snippets of the past, giving us an insight as to what went down and why, without fully disclosing everything. You're given just enough to keep you needing more. Very well written.

I also love that Lana, the leading lady, is a strong, intelligent woman who also happens to be the bad guy. Sort of. In a f*cked up kind of way. It's one of those times where you actually find yourself hoping that the bad guy wins. But I refuse to go into too much detail, you really need to read it to fully understand. So, what are you waiting for? Go and read it!

Blurb
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?
