Blowback (The Monsters Within Duet #2) – Monica James
Ever since I finished Bullseye, I have been highly anticipating the conclusion Blowback to get the answers to all my questions, especially after the ending of Bullseye. Thankfully Blowback picks up right where Bullseye leaves off. This book is incredibly hard to review in the way I normally do, but I will try my best, I just don’t want to give any spoilers away.
Bull has just been hit with some hard facts and information which has once again changed life as he knows it. His whole game plan to avenge his brother’s murder has to be changed to accommodate the new terms and he is thrown for a loop for the first time in the duet. Tiger is also left with answers she didn’t want and realises how differently her life could’ve been. But after time she begins to question the real motive of the person who has reappeared in her life so unexpectedly, and doubts if their side of the story is as true as they claim.
Tiger and Bull realise that they are stronger working together to bring down their common enemy, so join forces, whilst also giving into their insane chemistry. But neither of them could be prepared for all of the obstacles, twists, turns and secrets which are revealed along the way. Can the avoid the blowback of their plan and come out the other side the victors?
This book had me all over the place. It was so hard to put down and I was desperate to know what happened next. I am not usually someone who likes watching or reading violent scenes, but Monica’s writing had me hooked and so invested in Bull getting his revenge, I didn’t care about the graphic detail in which they were described. Monica still has that incredible way of dragging you into the story and feel empathy for the characters, as cruel as they can be. At times, I was blindsided with the twists and some characters went in completely different directions than I could have ever imagined, but I loved every page!
Bull himself changes so much throughout this duet, but predominantly in Blowback. He realises that he doesn’t have to be a lone wolf, he can rely on others and he can have feelings and grow attached to other people, it doesn’t make him weaker, but in fact stronger. He displayed holes in his armour which made him more human and less of the machine he liked to think he was. Tiger was so strong and stood by her gut and beliefs throughout. She always did what she thought was right, even if that meant putting herself in danger to save the ones she loves. She was desperate to provide for her family and not be stuck stripping, she had dreams and I was so invested in watching her achieve them. Both of these characters dealt with so many hardships, but they leant on each other and helped the other come through them, they complemented each other so well as a couple. They both have flaws, but they are imperfectly perfect for each other.
So much goes on in this book, the web of the story is so much more intricate than I could’ve ever have predicted, but that’s what makes it so brilliant. Blowback has everything a dark suspense romance needs, drama, secrets, steam and a whole lot of strength from both the hero and the heroine. At times it feels like such chaos, but throughout there is loyalty, love and hope which makes it all worth it. Blowback is the epic conclusion to this duet and I highly recommend it, a must read!

This was supposed to be simple. Vengeance was mine. But I should know by now that nothing in life is easy.
My endgame has changed all because I met someone who wishes I was dead. Yet her hatred is the only thing saving her from The Big Bad. My lies protect her, so the harder she hates, the safer she is.
The thing about love and hate—it skates a very thin line. I need to stay away. It’s better for everyone if I do. But fighting this is like fighting nature.
Our paths crossed for a reason, and my Tiger isn’t fooled. Once the smoke clears, she will see every player, including me. I don’t deserve a second chance. But I want one…because I want her. The question is, what happens when the truth is finally revealed?
With the end in sight, I can promise you there will be nothing but violence and mayhem.
Oh yes, blood will be shed.
