Ben goes to Cambridge University to work as an under cover agent to investigate and expose a drug cartel run by rich and prominent individuals.
Sam Black had a very comfortable life until she was six years old, when tragedy came knocking on her family's door and it was all the way downhill from then on.
She attends the same university where her life is made a misery by her fellow students, mainly by her childhood friends Jake and Cathy but she will not be deterred from reaching her goal. Her past happens to be tied in with the drug dealers. Ben falls in love with her but she finds it hard to trust and believe him, especially as some of his undercover work involves flirting with her "enemy". Her lack of trust and judgement gets in the way of his mission and Ben finds himself in mortal danger.
The story involves corruption, romance, betrayal, terrorism and danger. I like the way Jake is portrayed and when his past comes to the surface, it is quite heartbreaking. I also like the way the Blake family handles all the difficult situations even when everything looks so hopeless. I personally enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next one.
The Blake Curse is quite unlike anything I have read before, and it's quite unlike most things I'd consciously choose to read. But I am unbelievably glad I did choose to read it. Much as I have read brilliant books, enjoyable books, books that had me turning pages hungrily, but this one was different. I feel as though I was literally chasing the story through the pages like a starving person would chase a pizza delivery boy with a mountain of pizzas.
I don't want to give too much away in this review, you really ought to read it and find out for yourself. The characters are deep and multidimensional; each one seems to have many secrets and hidden layers that peel back one by one like an onion until you are completely submerged and understand exactly what is at the core of them. The story itself takes that many bizarre twists and turns that it keeps you on the edge of your seat, each new avenue it heads up completely unanticipated and unimaginable before it happens. At half way through, I had no idea how it would end (and I confess if I had been reading a real book rather than the kindle version, I'd have been tempted to peek at the ending. I lie, I wouldn't have been tempted - I'd have done it for sure.Read more ›
I will tell you that I read The Blake Soul first and thought it was amazing. I loved it and was glad I read it first. The Blake Curse captivated me from the very start, I cannot recommend these books highly enough they grip you and don`t let go - 6 hours straight without the loo!!!!!!! Sorry serious head back on again.
I have no idea how to classify this book, it is a romance following two different stories, it is also a thrilling drama that is relentless from the start. I loved the family connection as well; the bond between the father and son just melts my heart. Anyway I am getting ahead of myself; let me set you the scene.
We meet up with Ben, the young son we met in The Blake Soul ( I will add you do not have to have read The Blake Soul to read this book, but I would recommend to) Ben is an intelligent, attractive man who has proven himself invaluable to the British Intelligence agency. He will do anything to protect his family and fulfil his duty, that is until his assignment crosses paths with Cathy and Sam. Ben must interact with both women to obtain vital information but both women change his world right until the end. But it is not just these characters that the book focuses on, Jake is a deeply traumatised man fighting his own demons, he too must battle Ben as he is focussed on succeeding.
The twists and turns in this story had me questioning each characters motive throughout, the vicious and dramatic storyline had my heart in my mouth. The characters are so well written you immediately bond and take the journey with them. A journey that, trust me, I would not like to take alone.Read more ›
