Jay McLean - Combative - Book Review (Review Copy)

Publisher: Jay McLean, 2015.
Genre: Contemporary romance, romantic suspense.
Length: 384 pages.

Jay McLean has been on my TBR list for too long. I’m so, so glad I was finally able to read this book. And, hooray, it’s a trilogy.

Kyler Parker finds himself in trouble with the law when he lets his anger get the better of him, and his fists do the talking. A returned soldier, he has trouble adjusting to the life he left behind. When he’s offered an opportunity for salvation, justice and revenge, he takes it. He doesn’t have much choice, but doesn’t think too much about what the consequences are for his future. Until he meets a girl called Madison Haynes who appears to have a bitter sweet relationship with the letterboxes in their building. She’s his new neighbour, and she might just be worth more than the revenge he seeks. She might be everything. But who is she?

Madison is so intriguing. She’s really kept under wraps and you can feel Ky’s frustration, but also the sense that they understand each other without needing to know much. Ky is that wonderful combination of protective, loyal and tortured. Talk about intriguing and compelling. 

I loved the flash backs, the way the past and the present slowly piece together bit by bit until you think holy cow, this story is so much bigger than you imagined. The world that Kyler finds himself in is only just starting to reveal itself. 

So many feelings. I didn’t want this story to end, and thank God it didn’t. There will be two more books in this riveting story. The pages turn themselves! Bring on Redemptive.

5.5 flares.
