review || KILLER { blog tour } by Heather C. Leigh

Shelbyville Publishing | March 15, 2016 | Romantic Suspense


UnthinKable. UnimagInable. UndeniabLe. UnforgivabLe. SalvageablE. Redeemable. 

Ten years ago, their lives shattered to pieces...
And he's the KILLER that has to live with it.

Two people. One incident. Interwoven between two damaged souls in ways they don't understand. 


"The fact I feel anything should let me know I’m headed in the wrong direction, headed down a path of darkness, destruction, and failure. A path that will dig out memories so painful I’ve created an entire persona to avoid dealing with them. Yet I know—I’m going down that path headfirst no questions asked, no matter the outcome.
I might be a monster, but I’m a selfish one."—Keller Keating

"When his strength envelops me, every wrong becomes right, every anxiety melts away, every doubt disappears. I feel calm, safe, whole. The spark of life that’s been missing inside burns bright, lighting me up like a solar flare, sizzling white-hot through my veins. Keller brings me out of the darkness and into the light."—Britton Reeves

{ about heather c leigh } .

Heather C. Leigh is the author of the Amazon best selling Famous series. She likes to write about the 'dark' side of fame. The part that the public doesn't get to see, how difficult it is to live in a fishbowl and how that affects relationships.

Heather was born and raised in New England and currently lives outside Atlanta, GA with her husband, 2 kids, and French Bulldog, Shelby.

She loves the Red Sox, the Patriots, and anything chocolate (but not white chocolate, everyone knows it's not real chocolate so it doesn't count) and has left explicit instructions in her will to have her ashes snuck into Fenway Park and sneakily sprinkled all over while her family enjoys beer, hot dogs, and a wicked good time.

{ review } .

I thoroughly enjoyed this story.

We start out on a day like any other -- with Keller and his friends skipping, Britton walking to the parking lot slowly to catch a glimpse of the senior who has caught her eye, and then also, a random girl who was waiting for her brother to pick her up.

That single day, their lives were all changed.

Britton suffers from memory loss, her mind protecting her from that day. She is terrified of people though, and because of that, she chooses to work in a fighter's gym -- the bigger the man, the more muscles he has, the more protected she feels. She's a slightly understated person, but she has demons she can't even begin to explain, nor can she.

Keller has a huge ol' chip on his shoulder. He is the reason his sister is dead and therefore, he's the reason his family fell apart. His fighting name is Killer because that is what he relates himself to. I did find his feelings to be a bit overplaced... I understood him, of course, but I felt that his immense grief was something that should have been battled and won over years prior.

Britton and her broken pieces are what will bring Killer back to Keller. But it's her broken pieces that may shatter him all over again.

I enjoyed this story. I found the beginning to be gripping -- I did, however, guess the twist immediately. Because of that, I was a bit anxious for everything to finally come to light. There were some aspects to the story that fell flat, or were monotonous, but for the most part, I was engrossed in this story and didn't want to put it down.
