You will read the first page and be just as entrapped to find out what happens to Morgan and Reid as they face what to anyone else would be a traumatic event. But to come across two pathetic Detectives who have no idea how to read a victim and continue to treat Reid as a Suspect in the disappearance of his dancer wife. A cliffhanger,,, just waiting for a resolution... will it come...
I did enjoy this novella. It was a quick read and I could feel Reid's pain as he realised his wife wasn't coming home. But was I enthralled enough to buy the next 4 installments to finish the novel? Probably not, I would prefer just to pay for the one book.
Belle Brooks has me on tender hooks every time I read her books because you just don't know what you are going to get! Which is what great writing should be about. This book had my heart racing and my mind constantly asking what the hell was going on. The book felt a bit short but wellwritten and left me asking for more. Can't wait for the next instalment.
I love Belle’s books so I was beyond excited to start reading this one as it is a little different to her previous stories and what I’ve read before. I absolutely loved it. It was very wellwritten that left me on the edge of my seat dying to know what happens next. I loved how intriguing and mysterious the Prologue was and I couldn’t wait to read the rest of the book. I’ve already started to love these characters in such a short time and I loved getting the 2 different POVs (although some parts told from Reid’s view had me a little annoyed and confused, I felt so sorry for him at times), it was great to read about what was happening with her and back home at the same time Can’t wait to find out more about these characters and their stories. The end of this book will have you dying for more (in a good way!) 4.5 stars
One Fear by Belle Brooks is the first heart pounding suspense/ thriller from the Game of Life series that sucked me in from the very first page. The book is written in a dual perspective which I really enjoyed, There is the perspective of Morgan the main character as well as Reid, her husband. All I can say is, wow! I really can't wait for the next book to come out. This has left me hanging by one finger from that proverbial cliff. The story starts off with a bang then back tracks to tell you how they got to where they are now. When I opened this up I didn't know what to expect since Belle is a new author to me but now I know that I will have to pick up all her other books while I wait impatiently for the next in this series. The writing was fantastic, I have never read a book from an Australian writer before so it was fun reading words that I don't hear normally. I recommend this book to readers who like suspense, thriller, or crime books.
This book had me turning the pages faster than I've turned any others since January.
Belle Brooks spins a web of terror in this fast-paced mindfuck of a book. I loved the writing. Belle can write! She gives the perfect amount of detail in the story without bogging it down.
We follow the story of Morgan Banks, a 30-something mother of two in a stale marriage. While on her way home from work one night, she is thrust into a battle for survival at the hands of a psycho that will have you biting your nails and gritting your teeth.
I highly recommend this well-written thrill ride. Patiently waiting for book 2!
OMG....this book was so amazing! This book grabs you from the beginning and leaves you with wanting more. Suspenseful, mysterious, angsty and frightening all in one book. This was a well-written fast read that I could not put down. Belle Brooks definitely knows how to intrigue her readers! I highly recommend this book to anyone!
Gripping. That is the word I would use to describe this book. A beautifully written story that grabs you and pulls you into a world you are left trying to figure out. I have my theories and I cannot wait to find out if I’m right. This book is different from Belle's other works and from what I normally read, but it has me delving into a new genre. It is wellwritten with characters that are developing throughout and leave you wanting to learn more. Buy it now!
What an absolutely thrilling read. Belle Brookes has once again delivered a wellwritten and well thought out book. I was glued to the pages and captivated throughout. I love how she gets into the minds of her characters and delivers their stories to the reader.
