PP Teaser 1

The sounds of blades being sharpened brings my attention to the right. It’s such a sharp, distinct sound that can make some peoples blood run cold. Me, on the other hand, I love it. As I step into the secluded building, I see the man that directs me to what jobs I have for the night. You see, I do the jobs that no others want to do. I clean up the mess that murderers, rapists, degenerates, and the scum of the earth make. Men that are high and mighty that can get away with their crimes so easily, because they have the money to make their problems disappear. But what most of them don’t expect... is me.

Author Bio:

T.L. lives in Brisbane, Australia with her 2 children. She started writing because of her love of reading. She used to doodle with ideas when she was younger, but never wrote too much. Her life dream is to be a full time author. If you ask her if she is like her characters, she says, “I am like both of the characters from my two book series. I think I have put a bit of myself in both….Krinos tends to say things without thinking, I do the same. She also rules the roost, and I do the same in my household.” Her celebrity crush is Chris Hemsworth, she loves chocolate ice cream, her biggest pet peeve is nails on a chalkboard., and she is not a fan of having her photo taken. She loves being part of the Indie Book world, and has made some amazing friends along the way. But, she acknowledges she could never do what she does if it wasn’t for the bloggers that pimp her and the fans that support her and read her books.

My Review:


When I started reading this book, I was a little lost. So many things were going on, with all separate characters. Two stories that are completely different. I favored one of the main characters over the other. However without both, the story would not be complete. I knew there was more to Kristy than the first impression I read of her. She was the Pandora Box that evolved till the end.

I loved Kai. If you read, you will understand why I say so little. Perfection.

Of course there is Julia. She does not have a huge roll. But when she is there, she brings color to a black and white page. You have to love the fabulous best friend.

Overall, I liked the story. It threw me for a loop. It was an epiphany with a WTF last paragraph in the Epilogue. That last page has lingered in my brain with the what if’s.

I guess that tells you right there if a book is worth the read.

Rating it a 4.2 out of 5.
