Author: Keri Lake
Series: Vigilantes #2
Genre: dark, contemporary romance
No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.
A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.
They failed. I survived.
Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.
Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.
Then she drifts into my life.
Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.
Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.
Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.
For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.

4.5 *Mia Luce* stars
Backfire is the second book in the Vigilante series but can be read as a standalone.
With Backfire, Keri Lake delivers yet another story driven by revenge and fuelled by love. I’m amazed by the way she brought the characters to life and made every bit of their existence realistic. Be the soul crushing act of violence or heart melting romance, Keri writes this gruesome story unapologetically as she makes you experience all sorts of unhealthy emotions right from the beginning!!
Jase Hawkins was presumed dead from the fire that burned down his home - killing his family. Now for the past year he’s been tortured, starved and imprisoned only to make his rage grow stronger. When there was no hope in life, he was given a chance to avenge for all the misfortune he endured, to kill everyone who turned his life into a living hell.
“I wanted blood.
Set on path of revenge, Jase comes across terrified Lucy and then begins the exhilarating tale of ‘hunt or be haunted’ and the two of them together proven to be quite an explosive couple. Jase isn’t your usual Knight in a shining armour but your heart will bleed for this flawed bad boy who was dealt with a horrendous life. I applaud this author for the creating such complex characters and their development over the course of the story was phenomenal. I loved the whole dynamics of their love. What started as a captivity turned out to be a beautiful, soul -baring relationship.
“I’d bleed for her.
Kill for her.
Die for her.”
