Review: RELLIK by Teresa Mummert

4 Stars

Rellik Bentley is to die for. 

He can have any woman he wants and they will do anything to be with him. He uses and abuses them like drugs and tosses them out with the trash. The only thing he gives a f*ck about is his music. That is, until Ella Leighton walks into his life and stumbles upon one of his darkest secrets. In the midst of doing damage control, he begins to obsess over the mysterious woman who wants absolutely nothing to do with him.
Rellik won’t take no for an answer.

  My thoughts; I know the old saying about books and judging covers and all that but, ummm, do you see this cover?? How can I not. Honestly, I have wanted to read this book since before it was fully written... all because of the cover. I pre-ordered it back in January, I was not playing around.

   I could tell by the synopsis that Rellik was not exactly a good guy. But Teresa "Queen of the Plot Twist" Mummert, has shocked me more than once. I am no stranger to her work so I know that just when I think things are one way, it may just turn out to be another.

    I wanted Rellik to be this misunderstood guy who was really just hiding all his pain under this facade of bad boy. And well......

   Ok, you all know me better than that. If you have ever read a single review I have written you know I am not going to give up a spoiler. I will say this, Rellik is not who he appears to be but neither is Ella. They both have secrets to hide. Rellik is not a sweet Happily ever After kind of story. It is dark and twisted and I loved every minute of it.

Just because I have to be fair and honest I will add a couple of things that were dislikes.

   There were a couple of spots in the book where I had to go back a paragraph or two because I had a "Wait what just happened" moment. Almost as if the transition between one event and the next were blurred but it does not detract from the storyline at all.

   The other thing that bothered me was that this book ends at 88%. However, there are two chapter from another book by Teresa Mummert (Pretty Little Things) to fill in the space. I am not sure if there is a note somewhere that says the book ends early and has bonus chapters from another book or not. If it does I missed it.

   All in all this was a really great and quick read (I read in a single day). I would recommend it to anyone who likes a dark twisted romance, with a possible anti-hero.
