Ricochet by Keri Lake…Blog Tour & Review

Title: Ricochet 
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: July 9, 2015
The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.
Three years ago, I had everything.
A beautiful wife.
 
A son.
 
A reason for living.
 
Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.
 
They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.
A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.
 
I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.
Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.
An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.
If she doesn’t destroy me first.
review
I became a fan of Keri’s writing when I first read her Sons of Wrath series.  When I saw she was writing a novel completely out of her paranormal genre, I was quite intrigued.  The synopsis had me hooked.  But what I did not expect was to be absolutely blown away by this story.  Ricochet is the supreme example of why I love reading.
If you have ever had the privilege of reading one of Keri’s others books, you know her books have a darker side.  Well, she definitely upped the ante on her darkness and left me speechless.  I found myself so many times gasping, crying, gripping my kindle in fear of what would happen next and at times not realizing how much time passed by while I was reading.
Nick is very a dark, mentally unstable and rough man.  His light has been snuffed out and all he sees is dark.  Aubree stopped believing in love and white knights a long time ago.  Her rays of hope have been long locked away.  But on the outside, people will never see what goes on behind closed doors.  Even if they did, people choose to be blind then get involved.
Keri writes a very powerful yet enigmatic plot.  The overall idea of seeking revenge is obvious – it’s what lies beneath that keeps you digging for more.  The depth of the characters as we learn who they are and what hides behind their quirks is so enthralling.  You can easily picture the grizzly areas of Detroit and the horrific scenes play out before you.  And just when you think you have finally figured out the who, what and why – Keri throws in more wrenches and WTF moments that just leave you even more baffled.
My words can not explain the true awesomeness that this book is.  If you want a story that is gripping, suspenseful, dark and twisted – this is it.  And I can’t leave out there are some pretty hot and intense scenes too.
Keri – I bow down to you for writing such an amazing story.  The characters, plot, descriptions – EVERYTHING – made this story extremely unique and your writing style made it beyond awesome!
