Product Description

Dark Crime Romance/Psychological Thriller. This book is not suggested for younger readers due to the sexually explicit content, violence and over all theme. This is not your typical romance, and will not appeal to all readers.

Three people irrevocably linked.
A heartless killer.
A shady businessman.
A woman caught in the cross-fire.

Braxton Alexander is a beast without remorse; a vessel filled with hate. Imprisoned for the murder of the one girl who loved him, now he is free.

Brycen Cole knows he must stop Braxton from taking everything he has and turning it to ash.

Gemma Woods has loved Brycen for years, but ever so slowly the happiness she once felt in the arms of her lover has turned to fear and resentment.

Braxton has one goal, one thought, and one mission – destroy Brycen Cole, by any means necessary.
He will not stop.
He will not fail.
Like a juggernaut, he will keep coming, destroying everything in his wake.

Brycen runs a successful corporation and provides a lot of pay-checks; he also has a shady past and a dark talent for hiding things.

Gemma spots the wolf in sheep’s clothing but cannot stop gravitating towards him again and again.

What happens when the lines between good and evil become blurred?
What happens when the one you love is the one you should fear?
What happens when the one you fear becomes the only one you can trust?

Revenge is something he'd tasted for eight long years. It was seared into his tongue and his mind. He'd get it, but first he'd destroy everything that Brycen Cole held dear. That was until Gem. Gem was a spitfire, her innocence wasn't something he'd prepared for. The long hours he spends with her and the feelings she's invoked in him now stand between him and his Retribution.

3.5 stars

This was an interesting story of three people who are interwoven in an intricate and almost perfectly executed plan of retribution.

Braxton has spend the last number of years in prison for the murder of his girlfriend. He has used this time wisely; planning ans scheming the perfect way to destroy Brycen Cole. Brycen has spend the same number of years as a business man with some pretty shady connection. But he has also grown to love Gemma and brought her into his world. Gemma is the girl who had nothing and fell in love with the powerful and attractive business owner.

We meet these characters, we follow them and see how seamless their lives begin to intertwine. There is a perfectly set web of destruction, Braxton had it all worked out until Gemma got under his skin. Gemma was just living her life, not expecting any more from it and never saw how it all changed until it was completely different. Brycen thought he was the king of the world until things fell apart.

The story was interesting and kept my attention but there were times that I felt lost. This a twisted love triangle and there were times that I was irritated with all of the players. I liked the story and it leaves you with another twist at the end. I am looking forward to the next installment to see where this story will end.

***ARC Received For An Honest Review***
Retribution is the latest book by one of my favorite authors, Mandy Dowson. The story is quick moving with lots of action that draws the reader in. The book is about Braxton (Daegan Crane) Alexander and his plan to seek revenge and get "retribution" against the man who destroyed his life, Brycen Cole. Braxton has had eight years to come up with a plan to take Brycen's life apart, piece by piece. His plan is to take Brysen down incrementally and when he has virtually nothing left but his girlfriend, to take her too. The one thing he had not counted on was falling in love with Brycen's girl, Gemma. This is also Braxton and Gremma's story of how they come to realize the feelings that they have for each other and how they do everything in their power to resist them. It is about the obstacles that they have to overcome, physically, intellectually and emotionally to be together and begin to work towards their happy ever after. Their relationship is a rollercoaster of emotion from the very beginning and the reader is right there with them through it all; you laugh and cry with them, you worry for them and you champion their cause and hope that they are able to achieve their dreams. The author has created characters that are relevant, well rounded, realistic, and although they are a bit damaged, they are likeable. I fell in love with Braxton and Gemma. The relationships between the characters are clearly explained so that the reader can easily understand. Through the use of words and graphic visualizations, the author creates a story that is full of emotion and sensuality that gives the story depth. There were some very erotic, hot intimate sex scenes between Brycen and Gemma and then some between Gemma and Braxton (Daegan), that had the reader breathless at moments. They were perfectly placed in the book. The author is able to draw the reader in to the story from the very beginning and then they are captivated and can't put it the book down. Before they know it they have reached the end and they are wanting I loved the book and can't wait for book 2 in the series. I would recommend this book to others.

There are some books that are worth more than the accepted 5 stars – this is one of those books – Many Lou Dowson has served up a story that is likely to have you gasping for air as it shakes you relentlessly by the throat because this is not a soft and gentle romance, IT IS DARK, IT IS GRITTY but by god it is FABULOUS!!!!
Told from three unique perspectives it is fascinating to get to know what makes each of these three individuals tick.
I felt for Gemma early on – seeing that she was trapped a relationship with the abusive Brycen, like many before her she realises too late that the man she gave her heart to is a man that she needs to cut loose but with a man like Brycen leaving is not an option.
Brycen is a bastard of the highest order, to the outside world he is everyone’s mate, such a great guy but behind closed doors, he is a monster with little if any redeeming qualities. His duplicitous nature suits him, he is man that it is very easy to hate.
Braxton, well he had me from his first words, he has spent years in prison for a crime he did not commit but now back on the right side of the bars, he is ready to meet out his own justice and take his retribution for the years that he has lost. Who does he blame for his incarceration – well none other than Brycen.
Oh, I was whooping with joy at this point – I couldn’t wait to see the snake get whatever Braxton has in mind for him – I’m not normally a vindictive person but I really took exception to the way he treated Gemma and the fact that he had no (and I mean absolutely none!!) remorse for the hell that he put her through.
Braxton took his task seriously and was meticulous in his execution – after all he had spent eight years plotting it out. But what he knew nothing about was Gemma.
The book involves Braxton systematically endeavouring to take everything from Brycen just like he had done to him, but even with years of hurt and pain driving him and his needs, he is unsettled by the presence of Gemma in the equation.
Gemma saw behind the darkness that Braxton wore so well and despite the air of menace that shrouded him, she saw more and because of that she managed to uncover a side of him that he thought he had left behind long ago, she brought out his compassion and with a clear head he was able to show her what it was like to be loved, to feel special and most of all to feel wanted.
The triangle between the three of them kept me completely engrossed, and the world that surrounded the story was completely intriguing, I found it almost impossible to slow myself done , desperately trying to insure that I didn’t skip any detail of the story.
There was so much going on that I was detail hunting in order to try and work out where I thought the next turn was coming from – more fool me because the author had me completely at a disadvantage – she stacked the cards and I went with the hand she dealt me and it was beguiling!
One word for this book – amazing!
