I often wondered if Vengeance came with a price. I never cared, not after the torture I've endured.
For me, Vengeance is best served through the eyes of my scope. The twitch of my finger. The pull of a trigger.
The death of someone who deserves to die.
Revenge, retribution, and retaliation are all that comes to mind.
Cruel and brutal punishment for the hell inflicted on my family is all I’ve ever been able to think about.
The betrayal fresh in mind years later, reminding me of the day my world came crashing down.
I lost everything.
The woman I loved.
You know what else I say about Vengeance?
It’s best served frozen.
No side dish of compassion. No extra helping of warning.
No dessert called a second chance.
The price I want for it.
Is written in blood.
**** 4 Star Review ***
I have read a few of Coopmans' books in the past, and this one is by far the best one I have read yet. I devoured this story. There is something about a dark romance that I can't help but to sink my teeth into.
I need to start this off by saying that this book is in no way rainbows and unicorns. If you are looking for a sweet read, you won't find it here. If you are hyper-sensitive to sensitive subject matter, this book is not for you. It is dark. It is gritty. It is not pretty at all. Consider this your warning that you will not find any fluff in this book!
These characters. Oh my. Coopmans' wrote these characters so well. You will get to know the good, the bad, and the ugly of each and every character in this book. Coopmans' did an exquisite job at drawing the line with these characters. You will have no problem loving and despising the right characters.
As for the plot and telling of the story. It is told so perfectly. It develops at the perfect pace from start to finish. You will devour and savor every single page. Your heart will break. Your heart will heal. Your heart will pound. This book will hit you in the best possible dark, dirty, and delicious way possible.
I have to thank Coopmans' for this book. There aren't a lot of authors who can tell a true dark romance that I can't put down. This book is hands down on of those books. I wasn't sure I even wanted it to end. I relished every last page.
