THE RISK by ST Abby
They took too much.
Left too little.
I had nothing to lose…until him.
I didn’t expect him.
I didn’t want to fall in love.
But I can’t let him go.
Logan Bennett makes the world a safer place.
He’s a hero.
He locks away the sick and depraved.
But while he’s saving lives, I’m taking them. Collecting the debts that are owed to me.
Ten years ago, they took from me. They left me for dead.
They should have made sure I stayed dead.
Now I’m taking from them.
One name at a time.
THE RISK by ST Abby
Oh my goodness! Where the heck has this author been hiding from me???
This is the first of S T Abby’s books (LOVE the name, lol) I’ve read but it will most definitely nor be the last.
I used to shy away from books that were less than 150 pages long.
I used to think that there was no way I’d have enough time to get into a story and love the characters in such a short time.
I used to think that they would be rushed or lack a decent background.
I was SO wrong!
This book was amazeballs!
I love the characters, I love the backstory, I love the suspense and I love the writing style.
And I LOVE that this book is dedicated to all of those women who wanted to be heard, who wanted to be a “Lana”. And to the women that are no longer here to speak out. Thank you ST Abby.
Lana is amazing. Her past could have destroyed her but she fought back.
As a teenager, she was brutally raped and beaten by a group of men. They thought they had killed her…They should have made sure because over the last 10 years she’s gathered the broken pieces of her mind and soul, glued them back together with a strength and determination that I know I don’t possess and now she’s getting revenge.
Only problem? She’s starting to fall for an FBI agent. The same one who’s working her case. He just doesn’t know it yet.
The problem is the fact he’s sort of my opposite in the not so good way. Meaning, I kill people and he catches killers. And I can’t stop. I wish I hadn’t met him so early on in my list.
I want me some of this man. He is an FBI agent. An extremely good FBI agent. And that makes him all the more off-limits, but who am I kidding, that’s why I want him so bad!
He’s intelligent, good-looking, and awesome in bed, lol, with just the right amount of cockiness.
He and Lana are drawn together from the first time they meet and can not stay away from each other.
He just can’t quite believe that she is this perfect.
If something seems too good to be true it probably is, right?
I caught myself with a goofy grin on my face while reading his scenes. Seriously…I want one of him.
There is some explosive chemistry between these two and I loved it. The scenes were hot! I may or may not have been holding my breath and not realised it until the scene was over, lol.
You really go there emotionally with these two because you know what this means to her now after everything she’s been through.
Slowly, I move toward him, and he remains completely still. When I reach him, I lean forward and flick my tongue against the firm flesh on his abs. A quiet sound escapes him, and that seems to snap that small thread of control. His hand goes to my hair, and with a hard tug, he forces my head back as he lowers his face and finds my lips again. It’s rough and hungry, and completely different from anything I thought I’d ever want. I’ve been controlling sex since I found it in me to be intimate again. This is the first time I’ve ever felt comfortable letting a guy lead.
I love that it’s so dark and gory too. I needed her to get this kind of revenge.
It’s step one of humiliation. It’s step one of stripping their dignity. They always piss and shit themselves. A smile curves my lips. He curses as the first tear falls from his eye. He’s trussed up and strung out, unable to wipe it away. I want all his tears. I want all his misery and terror. I want him degraded to the point he has nothing but indignation and humiliation left. Then I want his screams.
FINAL THOUGHTS on THE RISK by ST ABBY
This book surprised me in the best way. It sucked me in and kept me there throughout the whole story.
It wasn’t rushed, it wasn’t lacking.
The only thing I wish for is a little more sex…but then that’s just because I’m an extremely horny girl 🙂
