Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Defied” Book 2 of the Blood Duet by Maria Luis. (review below)
Sworn, Blood Duet Part #1 => https://amzn.to/2KxDoCD
I am both a sinner and a saint, but I bleed vengeance.
For years, I’ve lived in the grey… until her.
Avery Washington didn’t belong in the shadows, but I dragged her into the darkness anyway.
One kiss, and I would stop at nothing to possess her.
One caress, and my need to destroy wavered.
Our attraction was poison and pleasure.
They say the devil recognizes his own, but I never saw Avery coming.
She’s determined to light the matchsticks, and I can’t resist going down in flames…
OMG where do I start with this review. I love Ms. Luis’s pasts works and to say she has hit a homerun with this duet would not be doing it justice. Perhaps saying she has stretched her writing to a new height might be a description. My only problem is I have no idea where to begin without giving away to much. So let me start by simply saying buy the Blood Duet, you will not be sorry.
We left off in book 1 (Sworn) with a complete OMG Cliffe moment (which I won’t spoil here). Things will come to light that will have Jack and Avery fighting for their lives along with their own personal demons. The twists and turns in this thrilling duet will have you guessing and on the edge of your seat at every turn. Who can they trust, can they even trust each other, is anyone who we actually think they are? You will find yourself drawn into life in the shadows and underworld of New Orleans as you experience the shady dealings of the towns politicians and everyone Avery and/or Jack have ever known. Your heart will break and soar and break again as you follow these two broken souls who have fought to survive since they were teens. Two people who would give up everything just to belong and know what it’s like to be loved.
I can’t recommend reading and following Jack and Avery’s life stories enough. The highs, the lows, the thrills, the chilling, the suspense and even the romantic and humorous moments will keep you turning page after page and contemplating its ending. KUDOS Ms. Luis for an amazing duet. It’s definitely been one of my favorites for 2018. 2 Thumbs Up.
Maria Luis is the author of sexy contemporary romances, though she may or may not have a few historical romances hiding in the cobwebs of her computer.
When she’s not writing about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet, Maria is a historian who specializes in medieval England and 19th century New Orleans. What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime–Maria’s favorite topics.
Maria lives in New Orleans with her better half, where she can generally be found hiking with her two dogs, Zeus and Athena, kayaking in Louisiana’s inter-coastal waterways, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
