    One thought on “Backfire”

    1. 4.5 **Sparrow & Warhawk** STARS“Two souls who’d survived hell, only to suffer the goddamn replays over and over.”That was one hell of a suspenseful, gripping and complex read. I really enjoyed it. Backfire is the second book in Keri Lake’s Vigilantes series. Each book can be read as a standalone and surrounds one anti-hero vigilante. Backfire tells the story of Jase and Lucy.“What I wouldn’t give to nail you against this wall and smile when your morals come crumbling down.”Lucy [...]

    6. In 2015 Keri Lake kicked down the door of contemporary romance to announce her arrival with Ricochet. Keri created a world that was so intrinsically vivid, it felt familiar to be back amongst the depraved, lawless streets of Detroit. Once again we see Keri lace up her boot straps with her addictive, page-turning read that is Backfire. Vengeance is the motivator that keeps Jase Hawkins alive, when he has nothing else to live for. The promise of spilling the blood of those that betrayed him is wha [...]

    7. US * UK * Jase and Lucy are the focus of BACKFIRE, their history, relationship and the way their lives fit into the Vigilante’s world. It's important for me to begin by saying that Ricochet, the first book in this series, was a resounding 5 star read for me. I loved the raw quality, the intensity, the darkness, the way it made me think and feel, and the way it made me root for the hero and heroine. BACKFIRE is as equally dark and edgy which is right up my reading alley and I've watched many o [...]

    10. *** IT'S LIVE***B&NiBooks5 Kryptonite StarsTLDR? It was awesome!Review @ Vanilla & Spice BooksIf you are looking for pretty butterflies, rainbows and heart shaped clouds move on. You won't find them here. This is a gritty tale about violence, sacrifices and revenge but also all consuming love and tenderness in the face of danger and loss. The lines between the polar opposites of good and evil are blurred and things aren't always what they seem. Our story takes place in Detroit. In my min [...]

    11. 5Luce STARSI’m a self-professed lover of dark reads. The darker, the grittier, the more on edge - the better. And if all this darkness can be infused with passion and love, then I’m on cloud 9. My first read by Keri Lake, Ricochet, was like that and I loved the darkness. This second book in the Vigilantes series, while also standalone, builds on that same darkness. It also takes place within the underbelly of Detroit. Where violence, corruption and monsters dominant. Where survival is its ma [...]

    14. LIVE on !5+ Raw, gritty Stars!When I'd read my first novel by Keri Lake last year, I knew she had a gift of taking a raw, gritty, dark story and somehow shine a beautiful light on it with her poetic prose. This such book was titled Ricochet and was in my top reads of 2015. Backfire is the second (standalone) book in that series and she, once again, did not disappoint. Backfire, like Ricochet, takes place in the seedier parts of Detroit. Where crumbling, abandoned buildings are the backdrop in th [...]

    15. 4 Here With You StarsI was introduced to Keri Lake with Ricochet. I loved it. When I heard about Backfire I was super excited. There is something about the way the author writes about crime, revenge and darkness. The underworld of Detroit, with its darkness and depravity and the seediness of crime and drugs nestled in deserted buildings, is brought alive by Keri Lake. She takes you there with vivid imagery and makes you squirm. It isn't for the faint of heart. There is death and violence and blo [...]

    16. 4.5 *Mia Luce* starsBackfire is the second book in the Vigilante series but can be read as a standalone.With Backfire, Keri Lake delivers yet another story driven by revenge and fuelled by love. I’m amazed by the way she brought the characters to life and made every bit of their existence realistic. Be the soul crushing act of violence or heart melting romance, Keri writes this gruesome story unapologetically as she makes you experience all sorts of unhealthy emotions right from the beginning! [...]

    17. I finished this book a couple of days ago and let me tell you that Keri Lake managed to both enthrall and horrify me with this book.Word of warning: this book contains very graphic violence. If that isn't your cuppa, then this book wouldn't work for you. I can't call myself a dark romance reader. I don't seek dark reads as often, but if I do read books of this nature, I tend to be very picky. Long story short, Keri Lake writes my brand of dark. While her characters are flawed and exhibit violent [...]

    18. Reading Backfire is like drinking a good wine. To fully appreciate it, you must read it slowly. There are so many information, so many turns, so many surprises that will left you completely stunned. Keri Lake put a lot of effort in his book and it shows! One thing I'm so grateful for is the fact she decided to give us a full book instead of two. Yes the book is long but every details counts and its length adds to the beauty of the book. It's necessary to enjoy Lucy & Jase love story.I've nev [...]

    19. 5 'brutal, raw and beautiful' starsOnce again Keri Lake bring us back to the utter depravity within the Detroit City with Backfire. I thought Book 1 Ricochet is dark, but Keri bring it one step further with Backfire with more brutality, which is definitely not for the faint of heart. Jase Hawkins is a small time criminal and an urbex enthusiast. When his family was killed before his eyes and he subsequently got thrown into an underground mine for eleven months of pure torture, he only had one th [...]

    20. ❝Everyone had a story, but ours was carved in bone and written in blood.❞WOW! This book! It is just as action packed, suspenseful and thrilling as 'Ricochet,' but 'Backfire' has a different feel to it. There is a pull between these characters that you can't help but feel. Keri Lake's writing is captivating, intriguing and purposeful. I am a huge fan, HUGE!❝I feel safe with you.❞ Her eyes flicked back and forth. ❝You're my home.❞Just because you want it, doesn't mean you believe you [...]

    22.

    23. 5 This-book-chopped-me-up-and-had-me-for-dinner Stars!!!I feel like nothing I can say in this review will be enough. There is so much in this book that I am literally overwhelmed writing this review. The thought I keep coming back to is that it feels like a comic book, which sounds cliché, but this book is not cliché at all! It’s a book of evil, drugs, crime, danger. But it’s also a book of hope, light, love, sex. I felt like I was pulled into this world, and I just got lost. I LOVE gettin [...]

    24. Rating ~ 4.5 starsSo I'm writing this having finished the book couple of hours ago, I'm still in kind of that place where your semi aware of your real life and than the other part is still thinking about the book. I'm not sure why exactly but this book felt even darker than the last. I'm going to try and keep this one to the point and less spoilery stuff because to fully enjoy this ride, its better to not know all the ups and downs.Jase Hawkins has had a literal hell of year, seeing his family d [...]

    25. 5 heartpounding stars‘Love was not a choice, but merely a destination.’This was the second time we spent with Keri Lake and like last time (Ricochet) we are in complete awe of her talents. Why? Because she managed to once again make our hearts pound from page one to the last with a story so thrilling, dark, sexy and gripping we felt like we were reading in a race against the clock. We were honestly so completely consumed in this story that it was as if we were bystanders in every scene such [...]

    29. **Backfire generously provided in exchange for an honest review.**4 "There was a certain beauty in destruction."StarsKeri Lake brings dark and gritty to a whole new level Backfire, a stand alone book two of her Vigilantes series.
