No matter how unbreakable he may seem, every man has a weakness.

A year ago, my home became a bloodstained crime scene. That night marked the beginning of my hell—the same night I was tortured by my enemies and tossed into an underground prison to die.

They failed. I survived.

Now that I’m free, only one motive burns in my soul: revenge.

Lucky for me, they think Jase Hawkins is dead. Maybe I am. I’ve got nothing but a cold, merciless rage, and Black Betty, the sharp steel blade that never leaves my side.

Then she drifts into my life.

Lucia wants answers—so much so, she’s willing to fall into the darkness where my enemies lie in wait, to kill her for what she knows.

Or to take her for the depraved fantasies her body alone can rouse in a man’s mind.

Me? I want her for the fire in her touch that feeds my addiction, forces me to feel what has become numb, but my appetite for bloodshed runs deeper than flesh.

For my own sanity, I’ve vowed to stay away from her. Because she’s my only weakness, an obsession that leaves me craving more—one that could make even the most steadfast plan backfire.

"Backfire is dark, gritty, and unapologetic. You'll be reading it with your heart in your throat and your stomach twisted up in knots. It's violent, a touch depraved, darkly erotic, action packed and absolutely, positively unputdownable." -Dirty Girl Romance Blog
"It's brilliant. It's rewarding and it is a mind screw done perfectly. You will hear your heart break for what Jase and Lucy go through. You will love, hate and shatter." -Kathy Coopmans, USA Today Bestselling Author
"So dark and disturbing you read with one eye open, unable to look away -riveted by what's playing out before your very eyes as Keri Lake takes you on a twisted rollercoaster flying in different directions at great speed." -Totally Booked Blog

"Once again Keri Lake has given us a wonderfully engaging story which sucks you into a whole other world, making you feel everything and revel in the brutal underworld that she has created. It's a book you experience,not just read, and if you're in the mood for this sort of story, it's going to blow you away with its dark intensity." -Escapist Book Blog


This was a great addition to this series, the author does a really great job of making you feel like you are these characters. I have really connected with the characters. 

I loved the way these characters seemed to compliment each other really well. They seemed to be perfect to each other and I loved that their story goes way back. That they each though of each other over the years. 

This book has quite a bit of action, both violent and sexy. The gory bits are pretty dang graphic, but I think they really make this story. Every intense scene I was devouring each page. The sexy bits are really great too and intense, but I love that they didn't overpower the storyline. 

I don't want to keep rambling and possibly give something away, so I will just say that this is MUST READ. It also is a true standalone and you will not be lost while reading this if you haven't read Ricochet. But I do recommend reading Ricochet too. 

**I received and ARC for an honest review.**

Keri Lake is a married mother of two living in Michigan. By day, she tries to make use of the degrees she’s earned in science. By night, she writes dark contemporary and paranormal romance. Though novels tend to be her focus, she also writes short stories and flash fiction on the many occasions when distraction sucks her in to the Land of Shiny Things. 

She loves hearing from readers …
