Lust, Money & Murder Book 1, Lust – Mike Wells



I got this book as a free download from iBooks after discovering the author on twitter.

The book is about a girl called Elaine who goes through a life changing event, caused by an unscrupulous criminal, when she is just sixteen.  This event triggers a strong need for revenge and the story follows her while she prepares herself to get that revenge.  Nothing’s that simple though – a few twists and turns in the story and she finds herself in another country doing a job that she actually enjoys and working with a guy who she couldn’t help but fall for.  Unfortunately, however, things aren’t as they seem and the end of this first book ends on a huge cliffhanger.

I don’t usually read crime style books but I did enjoy this, there were a few moments that had me laughing out loud, which is always a good thing in my opinion, and the plot kept me guessing throughout.  I really liked Elaine’s character because she seemed so strong and determined even when things got tough.

This is a fast-paced, sexy book and after such a teasing ending I will definitely have to read the next book to find out what happens.
