Ricochet by Keri Lake ~ Review

Title: Ricochet
Author: Keri Lake
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.

WARNING: **Not recommended for readers under the age of 18 due to graphic violence, sex and strong language. Trigger warning for self harm.

An eye for an eye

This will be a short and sweet review since the summary already says a lot, and I don’t want to reveal too much. As my first read from Keri Lake, Ricochet was deliciously dark and awesome!

Nick Ryder is the ultimate tortured hero. He lost everything tragically a few years back. Now he’s ready for payback. Now he’s ready to visit each and every person who had ripped the happiness from his life. He really wants to hurt the person at the top of his list, so he kidnaps his wife. Aubree is not the woman who he expected, and she’s got her own personal agenda.

Wowza! At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the relationship between Nick and Aubree. He did kidnap her, after all, but I was convinced when their individual pains bond them together. Nick and Aubree are fierce characters, and the bad guy is seriously despicable. Suddenly, I couldn’t wait for the revenge to play out, and it does…in spectacular, gut-wrenching fashion! Keri Lake keeps things hidden from you until the right moment, and then she twists your heart. Ricochet is superiorly dark, twisted, filled with graphic violence, suspense and explicit scenes. If that’s your kind of read, then step right up!
