Review: I See You by Ker Dukey
I watch you, I see you in ways no one else can, and through my lens I create a life of you for someone to dissect. I capture you in your vulnerability; that smile, your laugh, those tears. I document you and sell your secrets.
When I watch you through my lens you’re mine until I pass you to the buyer. I, like most people, have a fetish for pretty things and in my job I get to be around a lot of pretty things. They pay me to watch them and capture them in a frame for many purposes, and sometimes I like my profession a little more than I should.
I took a job to capture her… I wanted to capture and keep her in more than just the image. This time I will take myself away from the lens and become the client because I cannot resist her, she reminds me too much of my first, I need to have her.
Traumatised from a vicious attack, Nina Drake finds herself shut off from the world until her neighbour brings her out of more than just her nightmares. Even after moving and changing her name, she still can’t shake the feeling of being watched. The memories are so close.
And so is the shadow of the creator of them all.
**** 4 Star Review ****
Readers kept telling me that I needed to read this book. They told me is definitely my kind of book. Then my book club voted it for our April read. I am SO glad they did. I have a tendency to one-click books and not getting a chance to read them all. This is one I was more than happy to read!
That intro? Sucked me right in! I was hooked. The book had already become like a drug for me. I did nothing but think about this book every time I had to put it down when life interrupted my reading time.
Let me tell you, this book isn't for those who like light reads. NOT AT ALL. It's all the things I love. Messed up. Dark. Gritty. Raw. And the plot twists? Although I saw one coming, that ending... I had a feeling something like it was coming. There are some signs, but it took me a while to catch on.
This is one of those stories I can't really talk much about them. This entire book needs to be a mystery to you until you read it. Anything I say can be considered as a spoiler. I love that about this book!
