Release Date-9th February 2018
Theirs was a secret they’d kill to protect.
Three cracks of thunder. Three reasons to run and hide.
When the lightning illuminated the night, I saw their bloodied faces. They were no longer the boys from next door. As quick as the storm rolled over the neighbourhood, a crime of passion was committed, Lucas and Mason Carter dangerously altering the course of all our lives.
Ten years later, on my twenty-sixth birthday, when detectives come digging for information on a cold case, I find myself once again unwillingly tangled in the spider’s web.
I hold information on a heinous crime. I have become the number one target. More specific, I have become Mason Carter’s obsession.
While one brother seeks to destroy me, I have to believe the love I share for the other could somehow save us all.
When running proves futile, I’m left with a choice. Reveal the deadly truth, or dare to take on the monsters lurking in the dark.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
💓FIVE AMAZEBALLS STARS💓
Monsters by Melissa Jane was a fantastic edge of your seat read.
I was going blind with this as I have never read anything by this particular author before.
So Originally I wasn’t quite sure where this was going to go in terms of plot.
but it quickly became apparent that there was never going to be a dull moment with this and I was in a constant state of fright at the turn of events throughout.
It was like one of those scary movies where you cant look, but try to catch a glimpse from behind the cushion your hiding behind.
With this book, we catch up with Gemma, ten years after she witnessed her neighbours one stormy night doing something that she is not quite sure of.
The next day was the last time she saw her best friend Lucas and his monster of a brother Mason who before leaving threatens her life if she breathes a word to anyone.
So detectives are digging into a cold case and as such bring a certain old dangerous nemesis back into her life.
As events quickly escalate it becomes quite apparent that Gemma life is in danger as Mason ramps up the fear.
How long has he been lurking in the shadows watching, her own personal stalker.
So that’s basically the main gist.
Monsters is told in present time and also a series of flashbacks, so you gradually get the full picture.
Its a tale of love, obsession and danger that is oh so easy to get lost in.
I couldn’t put this down and stayed up late into the night to finish.
Through Gemma memories, we very quickly feel like we know Mason and Lucas Carter intimately.
And as events intensified I was biting my nails so great were my nerves.
So the ending here I was happy with and though Monsters was a tad predictable in places I was still suitably shocked with where this went.
I feel events of the past have a big part to play in the unravelling of a certain individuals psyche.
So Yeh great read this folks.
