A satisfying trio of dark cautionary tales in the style of Richard Laymon, the 'Trinity...' is good, well-crafted horror, from an author who clearly spends alot of time indulging in the genre - the stories are familiar, the characters stereotypically deranged and deliciously twisted.

I really enjoyed these three tales - each has a great sense of atmosphere, satisfying dialogue and a range of personalities which we have come to expect in such shorts, and would not realistically be found anywhere else. You can tell an author which has fun with her writing, and Kyla clearly has alot of fun - this is why we love to read their books. She has a real knack for punchy, satisfying dialogue and a good descriptive prose, with a perfect sense of timing - as one scene, one conversation and one incident leads to the next, it does so each time with a good, comfortable fluency; in writing, particularly short-story writing - as in stand-up or flash fiction - timing is everything, and Kyla nails it.

I suspect that she wrote the tales in the order they feature, as you can see her writing style subtly evolving with each, culminating in a lip-licking erotic thriller, which hints at, but doesn't quite prod at, a fetishist suggestion in the author's future work; something which I would very much like to see. The first, "Junk for Two", although a good read, lacks a little in the range of its descriptive vocabulary, something which improves to some extent; having said that, I do feel Kyla's overall writing will benefit as she develops as a wordsmith. Likewise, the punchy pace of this book is fun, but the sentences are perhaps a little too punchy, particularly in "Junk for Two" - I'd like to see them a little longer and more descriptive.

Disclaimer: While I aim to be unbiased, I received a copy of this for free to review.

This was surprisingly fun! Here, we have three stories that follow a similar theme, and while they are occasionally almost formulaic, it actually works well. You know what’s going to happen, but the characters don’t. This is far from perfect, but it’s also very promising – and just the right length.

I really enjoyed this collection of nourish tales. The author seems to have a solid understanding of how deeply connected love, lust, pain and violence can be. The dialogue is well written and the characters are interesting. I look forward to reading more of this writer's work in the future.

Read this in one sitting deranged characters, interesting sexy, dark, and disturbing short tales. I enjoyed these stories because it's right up my alley. Loved the suspense the author gave and she has a deep understanding of love, lust that connected themselves with violence. Loved the second story best. Can't wait for volume two.

I would like to thank the author and reader's house for a free copy in exchange of honest review.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Start 15 Mar. 2017
By PeaceLoveHope - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An interesting collection of original short stories - 3.5 stars.

For me, the last piece (Phil) held my interest the most - it's downright wicked and wrong in a good way. I also enjoyed the first story (Junk for Two), which gave a believable look into the mind of a drug addict. I wasn't as excited about the second story (Iris), but I'm sure other readers will appreciate it. I was torn at how to rate this book because while I did like it, there were a few things I felt needed work. I think this is a good start for a new writer - keep those wicked ideas flowing. I look forward to seeing how this author grows and perfects her craft - definitely one to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely should read... 9 May 2017
By Kelsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
These short stories were brutally honest and showed dark secrets that people can have. From addiction to mental illness and beyond. You'll discover what some people are capable of when heartbroken. These stories definitely had me on the edge the whole time. Extremely disturbing but, the stories can really happen. I enjoyed it.

By Adah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Although dark and violent, I enjoyed these three short stories and felt each could have stood on their own as a full novel. All were thought provoking but I found Natalie's story the most heart wrenching. The others probably deserved what they got!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Author 13 Feb. 2017
By Britney U - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed every twist and turn in each of the short stories in "A Trinity of Wicked Tales: Jilted Love." The author was tasteful in painting a wonderful picture of each character and developing their personalities throughout each story. I look forward to Volume 2 and what the future holds in the rest of these wonderful stories!

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD, WELL-CRAFTED HORROR 5 Feb. 2017
By Matt McAvoy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A satisfying trio of dark cautionary tales in the style of Richard Laymon, the 'Trinity...' is good, well-crafted horror, from an author who clearly spends alot of time indulging in the genre - the stories are familiar, the characters stereotypically deranged and deliciously twisted.

You can tell an author which has fun with her writing, and Kyla clearly has alot of fun - this is why we love to read their books.

Likewise, the punchy pace of this book is fun, but the sentences are perhaps a little too punchy, particularly in "Junk for Two" - I'd like to see them a little longer and more descriptive.

Still, Kyla is not far off being the finished article, certainly where her genre is concerned, and if she is to continue writing prolifically, I've no doubt she'll produce increasingly good stuff - I'd look forward to that. Coupled with Kyla's clear indulgence, in the way she litters her graphic scenes with juicy effects and adjectives, here are all the makings of tongue-in-cheek, grisly horror fun for grown-ups. Although my favourite of the three stories has to be the shortest: "Iris", I'd love to read a novel Kyla has penned, and hope to do so soon.

"Jilted Love" does leave you wanting more, but in a good way - I'd like to have seen a fourth tale in this collection, with a satisfyingly killer story, just to end on a satisfied sigh, but as it is, this book is definitely worth a read, and I recommend it.
