Review: Kayleigh Sky is a new author for me and I was a bit leery of reading it. I am never sure of what the story is going to turn out to be like, but I have to tell you that this was a blast to read. Although if you do not like violence or rape then you might not want to read this. I should say that it has a reference to rape, not actual rape to it.
This story has a twist that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The characters were well-developed and had a lot of depth to them that has you falling in love with them. Their world was also well-developed and pulls you in. I loved the tone to this story and was fascinated with how well the story turned out. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I was captivated by the whole thing.
A vaccine gave a miracle and created something more deadly to the humans. People were dying all over and panic was setting in. Brey had been convicted of a crime but was now set free to live his life in this new world. He just wanted to find his family. Then a cruel man gets his hands on him and plans on selling him.
Thanks to the man who had arrested him some time ago, he finds a new way of life.
Hank was the one that arrested Brey and now he was the one to save him. He was a cop in this new world as well as the past. He had been a straight man with a family, and then the virus killed them all. Now he needs to deal with the fact that he is attracted to Brey.
There are so many changes that they have to figure out, and the changes coming their way. Brey is the one that pulls me more and I fear that he will be hurt once more. I had so much fun reading this story and the fact that it was by a new author, for me that is, was a major hit.
I can’t wait to see what other stories this amazing author has out.
I would definitely recommend this book.
