In her eyes, he would always be the same…
Twenty-four-year-old Maggie Jacobs had lived a life of heartache and pain. After losing the one and only man she ever loved to incurable cancer, she went on to take a job working for PGI Corporation in hopes she could find a cure in honor of him one day. Little did she know her very working there could be the difference between life and death.
Killer was just that—a killer. He lived for the moments when he could break bones and bring other’s nightmares to life. After all, isn’t that what they wanted from him? Genetically altered by the government, stripped of all his own memories, Killer heads down a dark and dangerous road.
Memories evade his mind, but nothing sticks out quite like the girl in his dreams.
With her dark brown hair and eyes, she’s a danger to his heart, but a victim to his rage. He knows she has the answers to his past. If he gets his hands on her, she will never be seen again.
Secrets, lies, and the sweetest of betrayals encompass them. Can Killer find his way through the rage and back to Maggie or is it too late? Can someone who is hell bent on being broken truly be saved?
This is my first J.L. Beck book and I FLOVED it! I mean this plot. THIS PLOT was AHHHMAZING! I was on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen the entire time! You know when you’re reading and you get that feeling that there is more. Well, there is so, so much more going on.
Diesel and Maggie are childhood friends and first loves. They were the best of friends when their lives brought them together. Both were bullied during school, both for very different reasons. They come to one another’s rescue constantly, that’s what friends do right? No matter what may rain down on you because of it.
Tragedy strikes eventually and Maggie is finding herself alone and trying to find her way. If only she knew the truth of what was really going on around her. Nothing is as it seems with either of them. Maggie and Diesel both have a life they didn’t remember having and when things start to come together it’s a rollercoaster of a ride! A KILLER ride!!
I really don’t want to say much other than this book was amazing. Too many words and I will spoil it and I refuse to do that to you. You MUST read this book! Death, cancer and bullying which are all serious matters were handled beautifully in this book. The writing was excellent and I just loved the plot of this book. Just when you think you have something figured out, J.L. Beck throws you for a loop and keeps you guessing until the very end!! I am patiently waiting for the next book!! 5 Stars!
“Want to hear a joke?” Her voice entered my mind as a flash of a memory hit me. My fists clenched as I gripped at the bed sheet. The muscles in my stomach clenched as I forced myself to hold onto to every second of it.
She had brown hair that flowed down her back freely. Big brown eyes that sparkled as she smiled at something I had said. She was saying something to me, her mouth moving, but I was unable to hear it… She was fading out…
“Killer.” Gauge’s voice was the first I heard, and it only made my anger worse. Who was she, and why the fuck did I have memories of a life I didn’t remember living?
“Get the fuck away from me,” I growled. I was on the verge of ripping the whole fucking room apart. My body was shaking as I shot out of bed.
“Killer. Stop. Calm down.” Gauge’s voice rang in my ears, but his words meant nothing to me. It was as if my mind and body weren’t connected. I wouldn’t be able to stop the destruction I would cause until I found answers. I needed them. So fucking badly.
Blood. Bathe in the blood of your enemies, the little voice in my head said. I smiled like the devil at the mere thought of killing—slaughtering.
I made my way up from the fourth floor climbing all four flights of stairs without a single bead of sweat forming. I was made this way. I was made to be indestructible.
Finding the nearest exit, I pushed out into the open alleyway that sat next to the building. It was time to hunt. To prey upon those who deserved it most. A piece of who I was, the one who clung to my humanity, the one who held onto the memory of that girl—disappeared. In its place was a man who would kill without even a thought. When I looked at the world through these eyes, I saw mass chaos and the need to rectify, to deliver my revenge. There was no mercy, compassion, or caring.
There was only death, revenge, and blood.
