Brycen and Braxton have quite the history. Braxton was found guilty and sent to jail for the murder of his girlfriend who was Brycen sister. Braxton claimed he was innocent. When he gets out of jail all he wants is to see Brycen suffer the same kind of loss he did. Part of that revenge plan involves Brycen's girlfriend Gemma until Braxton sees her as more than a pawn in the game he is playing.
There are some serious twists and turns in this triangular tail. One HUGE reveal was one I didn't see coming at all. Good and bad are not so easily seen and there is a fine line between them. Unfortunately Gemma is caught in the crossfire of these two men. I really enjoyed this part of their story and can't wait to see what happens next.
I give Retribution 4 hearts!
Three people irrevocably linked.
A remorseless killer.
A shady businessman.
A woman caught in the cross-fire.
Braxton Alexander is a beast without remorse; a vessel filled with hate. Imprisoned for the murder of the one girl who loved him, now he is free, and hell bent on taking all of his pent up rage out on one person in particular.
Brycen Cole knows he must stop Braxton from taking everything he has and turning it to ash.
Gemma Woods has loved Brycen for years, but ever so slowly the happiness she once felt in the arms of her lover has turned to fear and resentment.
Braxton has one goal, one thought, and one mission – destroy Brycen Cole, by any means necessary.
He will not stop.
He will not fail.
Like a juggernaut, he will keep coming, destroying everything in his wake.
Brycen runs a successful corporation and provides a lot of pay-checks; he also has a shady past and a dark talent for hiding things.
Gemma spots the wolf in sheep’s clothing but cannot stop gravitating towards him again and again.
What happens when the lines between good and evil become blurred?
What happens when the one you love is the one you should fear?
What happens when the one you fear becomes the only one you can trust?
About the Author
Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983, and at this stage in life, she's pretty sure the town won't let her leave. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children (most of the time), and two Siberian Huskies who are each as naughty as the other – in fact, she's sure they egg each other on in silly cartoon voices when nobody is looking.
“Climb out the window and get covered in mud.”
“No, I did it last time. You do it!”
“R'uh, r'oh, here SHE is. Shhh.”
When she's not writing, reading, or plotting her next book -- or, you know, world domination – , she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. You can usually find her procrastinating on social media of some sort, chatting to fans and talking nonsense.
Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising to find her reading anything and everything from shampoo bottles to Edgar Allan Poe.
She is the author of three different genres of romance books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden, the first of which has gathered very mixed reviews across the board, from one extreme to the other.
She has also made a foray into Dark Romance recently, with her first title in the genre, Retribution, releasing in Summer 2015.
