Product Description

Product Description

Best Selling Author J.L. Beck brings you a dark, and compelling story that leaves you hanging off the edge of your seat from the very first page.

"Her eyes grew wide, full of shock and fear. I could practically see the lie forming in her mind. I wanted to smile, but instead, I wrapped my hand around her throat."

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 was my first JL book, I took a chance and I'm so glad I did. I expected an extremely dark book that would really push my limits, and I knew it was one of those books I would either love or hate. So I'mm happy to say that I LOVED this book! It wasn't as dark as I originally thought but dark enough to make me squirm! wink emoticon
Maggie is a girl trying to ease the pain of the past.....
Killer is a man trying to remember, but fighting to forget....
Diesel is a man trapped....
I don't want to give to much away because it could really ruin the whole book so let me tell you just what I loved about this book!!
The depth into which the characters were written was amazing, it wasn't just a simple back story but an intricate web weaved to entice the reader. I loved that when Killer had memories it wasn't just a glimpse here and there, you got it all, the pain, the suffering, the love. Everything! I loved that they had a past, a deep past. It left me reeling at times wondering what would happen next!
You know how there's ugly cry books? And the sweetest love stories you can find? Well this isn't one of them, this is a book that will make you angry... Angry that the world, the characters, life in general. And it rocks!
I loved that I never knew what was coming and when! I highly recommend this book to well anyone!
5 amazing stars from NADBB!!!

Wow !! I loved every minute of the book J.L.Beck. So different to all your other books. The Kingpin series was dark but this new series is something else. I'm totally lost for words...

Maggie has had really hard life. After losing her best friend and soul mate to cancer, she makes it her life's goal to find a cure. Even if it means working for a man she hates. A man that has made her life a living hell....

Killer is government experiment. Having his memory wiped and been genetically altered. He is the ultimate killing machine...

I don't want to give spoilers but this book is a MUST READ !! :)

This is my first book by J.L Beck and I am so happy I decided to read it. What an awesome book. I have to write my review now even though I am only 70% in. This story has grabbed me right from the start and I have not wanted to put it down. J.L Beck has done an amazing job on this story line. As I am reading this story I can imagine the characters and the situation they are in. I am a huge fan and looking forward to future books by J.L Beck.

HASH(0xa1691d80) out of 5 stars SPOILERS, HONEST REVIEW May 28 2015
By ocdbookreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Let me just start off by saying, this book is a hot mess!!!
First we have Diesel/Killer
We'll start with young Diesel first. He has cancer, I think a disease was just picked and used, could of been anything really because it had no signs, symptoms, or anything other the being told it was a terminal, stage 4 tumor.
We find this out through confusing, reader figure out for your self, flashbacks. There is no time sequences that makes any kind of sense. No days, ages, time separating on flash back to another, NOTHING....
Here is an example:
He's dying any day now, so weak he fight or stick up for him self or Miggie ( the h) he's "supposed" to be having all this weakness, pain, memory loss, but none is ever shown. In the mean time Diesel gets into a fight with Roger the "bully" ponds him til he's bloody. Then they run off and have sex in some out side pull off. He's holding her up. Going to town.
Now if anyone of you have known any one with any type of cancer, this doesn't happen. Not is chemo, radiation or anything else mentioned besides inoperable tumor.
So then when further on to flash backs up to location 1655. No time sequences told how many days after their romp. He's in a hospital bed paralyzed, but can hear. His family is told he's hopeless and handed over to The Institution. What is The Institution we'll get to that in adult "Killer"
So next we're on to the next flashback, no idea how many days, weeks, whatever....
Location 1859. They are professing their love to each other and he's telling her how it's going to be ok when he's dead. (Which he did the chapter before).
Ok now to Killer, adult Diesel. He is now cured of cancer and, you guessed it .... a killer!! Who doesn't refer to himself as human, but a created monster.
When we meet him, he tells us how there was the escape from The Institution that was organized by Gauge. We're never told how that happens, use your imagination, which was most of this book, imagination. So anyway he needs to kill and have sex. He's going to snap if he doesn't kill and have sex. So he sets off to find a human to kill. He smells the corruption and goes after his target. (Hmm is he a vampire, I wondered at this point)? Which is a man attempting to attack a woman in an alley. Literally, he walks up, "growls", the thug says, "wanna join"? Ok, realistic, something every attacker asks a stranger while in the middle of beating and stripping her. Of course, Killer says yes and kills the very generous, sharing man. (Cue the sarcasm)
So after this leads us to him out in a local bar/club where he's looking for information on the people that work at or are involved with The Institution. No idea on how long after the kill. Again no time reference, as if this isn't confusing enough already.
So now we'll bring in Maggie, the lead female of the story. After Diesel does she goes to school and ends up working at.. yep you guessed it The Institution. They design all kinds of drugs and what not to cure anything, create anything, even have the cure for AIDS and Cancer. Plus this amazing drug L1, it does everything. We know this from being told about all the "lab rats" aka humans it was used to experimente on. And guess who the ownwer/boss is??? Yes, it's Roger the bully. We learn this as she takes files into his office and he gives her a smile as fake as Tammy's breast. (She's the new intern Roger is banging) why we were told any of this? It was never mentioned and Tammy was never in the book. So as Maggie comes out her best friend/co-worker (Kandace) forces her to agree on drinks that night.
So Kandace comes to pick up Maggie wearing her corsage top (I thought maybe another error and they were going to prom, instead of a night out). And they leave to go to the bar.
Now, Maggie spots Diesel (not sure how many years it's been since he's dead and was away) but she's all knowing it's him. So she follows and bumps into him. They argue for a few seconds as to why she's following him, then Kandace to the rescue to find out if this butt hole, effed, butt wipe is bothering her. I guess his appearance told her all that about him??
Killer has a few choice words and Kandace starts flipping no man talks to a lady like that. (I was looking for the lady in question) but figured it was Kandace with a worse potty mouth then a trucker. Which leads to Killer trying to kill her, but Maggie jumps in the way and he snatches her up by her throat and almost kills her. Jaxon, his roommate stops him. So they end up back at the place they are staying at. She's sit up with L1 to keep her hostage. Killer is saying at location 535 and 706 to get Greg. Maggie is waking up then and questions to her self who's Greg?? I was confused with her. Here the characters names were forgot. It's really Gauge they wanted.
Well over time Maggie is made to help him remember and both are held captive. Her to help him, and him because he's dead, and can't be recognized. (Yeah I know, he could of been in the bar too) Lol. He starts to remember some, but not enough and both are going stir crazy, so Guage let's them out but she has to be with Killer at all times. Well Killer has a flashback forced by Maggie and he does the painful headache, and spaces off. When he comes to, she's gone. He smells her out and finds her. As soon as that does, he remembers and boom, he's drugged with L1 again. He wakes up in a cell at The Institution and sees Maggie out cold from L1. Now you know Roger has them, right? So he'll let killer go if only if he kills Maggie.
They get out and escape thanks to Maggie's dad, and as he stays behind to make sure they are free tells Maggie she is one of the cured ones, which bring on her flashbacks after she kills a guy too. And now she knows she's going to be the best killer known as Project Rogue!!! Cliffhanger, I will not buy book two and continue this mess.
I am far from a prude, I love dark reads. But the constant "f" bomb of 224 times in a 130 pages just felt forced. It's like when your parent's aren't around as a teen and it's f this and f that. Maggie just gets done cursing a blue streak and then spurts out, oh fudge sticks. I think they all had a touch of split personality disorder. Nothing was consistent.
############ some similarities I found to another book.
Being injected with drugs to wipe out memory and be a killer
Drugs wear off flashbacks start.
Being held captive and forced to kill.
Having to escape said place.
Girl just happens to work at place he needs into for revenge
Attempted rape in alley, stopped and person killed with bare hands.
Blinding painful flashbacks
Given a number instead of a name.
Has to learn to socialize, feel and deal with emotions.
Read at your own risk. I was going to throw in all the errors, but that would take even more of my time.

HASH(0xa1691dd4) out of 5 stars Predictable and underdeveloped storyline June 1 2015
By Katie Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this book, but unfortunately, I did not. This book was about a teenage boy with a terminal illness. I found the story not realistic. I have watched the effects of cancer on children, teens, and young adults first hand, and I know anyone with a terminal illness such as cancer, would not have the energy that this boy does. I think with more research into the actual illness, the story could have been believable. Besides, the boy had a full head of hair during his treatment?
I also found the story hard to follow. I was not sure what was a flashback, and what was present times. Typically, stories that hop around from the past to the present will work in the time frames they are currently in to the scene, but this did not, so I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how old the characters were in that scene.
There were numerous plot holes that I just couldn't work through how it could be filled in, and there were quite a few grammatical errors that took away from my enjoyment of this book.
Overall, the idea that was behind this story was good, but the execution could have used some more attention.

HASH(0xa16930cc) out of 5 stars Could Not Find Redeeming Qualities to Bring Up the Star Rating May 31 2015
By BrookLynne's Bookends - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Started off strong. The synopsis had me hooked immediately and the cover is fantastic. And then I got to know the characters - as much as I could through the writing, anyway. Which isn't saying a lot. I could not, no matter what I did, connect with the leading lady. And then the relationship between her and the leading man...I was scrambling back and forth trying to find the "it" that the author was presenting to make their connection to each other plausible or even likeable. Unfortunately, I never found it. Maggie was such a blah sort of character that I wanted to pitch her out of the book and write in my own female. Killer is the sort of male that insecure, unstable, downtrodden females are drawn to. Perhaps it is just me, but I really don't think that is the kind of person that makes a leading male character. The overall aura of the book was extremely bleak, and don't get me wrong, I expected a book of somewhat bleak caliber due to the synopsis and the title, but this one was so bleak and depressing that there were no redeeming qualities left to make you look up and say, "It was worth it anyway." Because trust me, it was NOT worth it. Oh! And the flow of the conversations was very sporadic and lacked a concentrated flow while there were many parts in the grammar that need some attending to, especially if the book cover is going to boast the words "Best Selling Author."

HASH(0xa1691fa8) out of 5 stars HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT June 6 2015

This book had so much potential. It started out great but dragged on with a bunch of nonsense. Don't waste your time reading this book like I did. I plan to steer clear of this author's books.

If I wanted to read a RAZE carbon copy......I'd just re-read RAZE itself, it was written much better. This was just a poor Tillie Cole knock off. Sorry but I wouldn't recommend this book to others. Read the original.....RAZE by Tillie Cole!
