I am a huge Jessica Webb fan, so I was thrilled when I was approved for an ARC copy! This book is unlike Webb’s others.
It is darker, grittier, a little more hesitant and complex. And she can write complex and twisty wonderfully! These characters are unlike her others in a few ways. These folks are full of secrets, agendas and past baggage so deep you need to call the bellboy! It was a great read, trying to figure out who the “bad guy” was, and then being shocked at the end, ’cause I didn’t see that coming! It took me a little while to get into it, because boxing holds no interest for me. But once I stopped dwelling on that, I enjoyed the story quite a bit.
Once again, Webb is at the top of her game with complex characters, hidden motivations and more twists than a map would help with.
I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who likes their fiction multi-layered. You can find this wonderful book at Bold Strokes Books
