Ricochet, the winner so far this year of the award for the book with the most twists and turns. Hold on for the ride..

Ricochet 

I don’t look like your average killer
My tight dress, bright lips, high heels, and wild hair
Are all designed to distract you.
Because while you’re dreaming about what this dress looks like on your bedroom floor,
I’m planning the best ways to dispose of your body.
With dirt on my hands and blood on my shoes,
I do my job without a single ounce of regret.
You can judge me all you want,
But back before the penthouse and the designer shoes
I was just another forgotten girl on the streets, running from demons.
I went from unprotected to untouchable, from angel to monster;
The forgotten girl who came from nothing became the woman who built an empire.
This city is mine, I dare you to try and take it from me.
Just be prepared to lose, because I will ruin you.
And my twisted little black heart will revel in your downfall.

Trigger warning: Ricochet is a M/F/M romance. It deals with subjects that some readers might find upsetting such as sexual abuse and violence.
Due to its graphic nature and my leading lady’s trigger finger, this book is only suitable for people over the age of 18.

 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️’n a half Review

This is Viddy’s story, the sister Grim has been searching for. Going into this story I kinda thought I knew what I was getting, but boy was I wrong. Honestly, I think Viddy is one of the strongest female characters I’ve come across in a book for a long while. Despite the horrors she endures, she’s smart, capable, and compassionate. Did I say smart?

It was a great read from start to finish, and it had so many twists and turns that I seriously think this author is a ninja for keeping it all straight in her head while writing. And while it was a great read, I do think that this was a very slow burn. I honestly wish that we got more of the 3 of them together – and while I see why not, I still wished for more heat. The chemistry was certainly there, but the reason this isn’t a 5 star read for me, is because I’m not sure I believe in their relationships. It feels a bit unfinished, despite how the story ends. While I could believe in a relationship between her and any of the two, there was so little in the story with the three of them that I honestly feel that something was missing from the story. I kinda wish they get a second book, just to see how they settle in their new world, and in their new relationship.

But despite that, I absolutely loved this story and I’m probably gonna re-read it a few more times this year. Can’t wait to see what’s next from this author.
