Backfire is dark. It’s dirty. It’s raw. I have to say, after Ricochet, the bar was set pretty high. But, when I read the synopsis for Backfire, I just had a feeling, it was going to was going to blow me away and man, were my instincts right. This book blew my expectations out of the water.
So, Backfire is definitely one of those books that you just have to experience. It is going to take on one crazy, wild, dark, intense ride. You will kept on the edge of seat, trying to figure out what will happen next. This story is going to consume you. You will not be able to look away or put this book down. Is it dark? Yes, definitely. Is it going to shock you? Hell yes. Some moments are going to definitely shock you and take you out of your comfort zone. But, I have to tell you, it’s all good. It is so worth the ride. Because this isn’t just a dark story about vengeance.Yes, vengeance is a big factor, but there is so much more to this story. This is a story about second chances, justice and fighting for what’s right. This story will captivate you. It will make you think. It will make you question everything and wonder what you would do if you were in this situation. And there are is so much action and so many delicious twists and turns…I gotta tell you, there certainly isn’t a dull moment in this story.
But, lets not forget the romance, because yes, there is some smoking hot romance. Lucia and Jase are a force to be reckoned with. The chemistry between these two is just off the charts. Jase is 100% alpha male and once he realizes what he wants from Lucia, wild horses can’t wouldn’t be able to keep him away. And Lucia, she wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted either. She accepted Jase for who he was. She didn’t want to change him. She just wanted him. Gosh, I can’t say enough about these two. They are just perfection together.
