Book Review: Killing June

At night I’m June, dominating with the whip, even as I crave the hot, searing blow of the cane, myself. I loathe this side of who I am, but I can’t deny it or escape it. And as my clients cry out for me, begging for mercy, I can't help but want June dead.

By day, I’m Alex Ryan, the good, successful Southern woman everyone thinks I am. I’ve compartmentalized my life to make it bearable, and to get what I want most: revenge. I can have a future with June dead, as soon as I confront the man that terrorized my past.

Cade Brannon is the local gun for hire, part of the seedy underworld of Dallas, but he may also be my savior. I want his help and he wants me. But Cade refuses to play by my rules and is forcing his way into every one of those compartments that I want to lock away. Now the parts of my life I’ve fought so hard to keep separate are bleeding together and it’s tearing me apart.

I just want to go back to being Alex Ryan. But at what cost am I willing to kill June?

I very much enjoy reading dark fantasy but when I started this book, my first thought was that this book was way too dark for my tastes.  But then I got to know Alex.   I started to care for her and the different parts of her personality and I wanted to see her accepting all the aspects of herself.  

And then there was Cade.  He saw all of Alex and accepted her.  He tried to put her back together.  His line of work might be dark but at his core, Cade is a very good man.  

I do recommend KILLING JUNE to my readers but be warned it is a very dark love story complete with BSDM, drugs and other violence.  If that doesn't phase you than this is a very good book.  A story of redemption that is well worth reading.  

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
