Blog Tour, Giveaway & Eliza's Review: Ricochet by Keri Lake

Title: Ricochet 
Author: Keri Lake
Genre: Dark Romance
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.

With Ricochet Keri Lakes creates a 5 Star action packed, adrenaline filled, relentless display of a man driven by revenge and his quest to obtain it by any means necessary.

The dark theme is uncompromising in its approach and I applaud Keri as she refuses shield her readers from the rawness of the pain felt, the suffering and the realism of hurt that stem from a horrendous act.

Nick Ryder is a man who is plagued by the loss of his wife and son. The vengeance he craves lies with Aubree Culling, the wife to the man he holds responsible, Michael Culling. In the corrupt, lawless streets of Detroit Nicks justice will be wielded by his own hand.

I experienced a cacophony of emotions during my read, I may even have turned a little blood thirsty. I felt like a participant in this, it was Nick's journey but I was also along for the ride. It really was an extravaganza to my senses and I'm sure my heart has only just recovered. But as much as it is about revenge, it is also about redemption and freedom however great the loss.

First and foremost I'm a romance reader and to those readers who may be thinking the dark theme may be too heavy for them or outweigh, I think the author does an excellent job of balancing the two in my opinion.

Ricochet was my first foray into the world of Keri Lake and if I could describe her writing style based on this alone, the words Evil Genius come to mind.
