RELEASE BLITZ & REVIEW — Monsters By Melissa Jane

Title: Monsters
Author: Melissa Jane
Genre: Romance Suspense
Release Date:  February 9, 2018


Theirs was a secret they’d kill to protect. 



Three cracks of thunder. Three reasons to run and hide.

When the lightning illuminated the night, I saw their bloodied faces. They were no longer the boys from next door. As quick as the storm rolled over the neighborhood, a crime of passion was committed, Lucas and Mason Carter dangerously altering the course of all our lives.

Ten years later, on my twenty-sixth birthday, when detectives come digging for information on a cold case, I find myself once again unwillingly tangled in the spider’s web.

I hold information on a heinous crime. I have become the number one target. More specific, I have become Mason Carter’s obsession.

While one brother seeks to destroy me, I have to believe the love I share for the other could somehow save us all.

When running proves futile, I’m left with a choice. Reveal the deadly truth, or dare to take on the monsters lurking in the dark.

While I enjoyed this one a lot, I will admit I was expecting something darker and more twisted. This was pretty much a straightforward psychological thriller with a touch of romance. Albeit a very well written one. It was also very well paced. The plot was very engaging and kept me turning the pages. I will say I figured out what the “twist” was going to be very early on but that didn’t take away any from my enjoyment of it. We jump back and forth quite a bit which would usually annoy me greatly but it worked very well in this instance. The past is also where most of the teen romance aspect of this one takes place. 


Since this really wasn’t a romance there really wasn’t a “hero” or “heroine” in the traditional sense. All three of the main characters were intriguing and well developed. I really enjoyed Gemma and Lucas’s friendship and budding romance. I would have liked to have seen a little more time spent with Lucas in the present as I felt his and Gemma’s reunion and the aftermath was maybe a tad bit rushed. Mason, well Mason was Mason. He was suitably evil and creepy. I think perhaps what he had been up to for the past ten years could have also been fleshed out a bit more.


There are a lot of secondary characters in this one that all play small roles here and there. They added a nice background and kept the story moving forward. But the plot is mainly centered on Gemma, Lucas, and Mason. 
description~HEAT LEVEL~
Super Low. There is basically only one semi-explicit sex scene in this one and that isn’t until very near the end. Like I mentioned though this felt more like a psychological thriller with a touch of romance. 


Low to Medium. All the angst basically comes from Mason and his behavior towards Gemma. 


I liked it quite a lot. Was it exactly what I was expecting (super twisted and dark), well no, not really. That said, it was a very good thriller that was very well written and paced. Had an engaging plot that kept me hooked. Had interesting characters and an ending that perhaps was a tiny bit rushed, but still left me satisfied. Yours truly gives this one two solid thumbs up and I will definitively be checking out other books by this author.description
