VBT: Killing Time Review + Giveaway!

Thanks for hanging out at my stop on the Killing Time tour.  I hope you enjoy what you see here today!

A Murder Mystery… Aurélie Segler-DeMarche is a smart, independent woman who works as a journalist for a top rated news network, engaged to a wealthy blue-blood and living a life most women would dream of when she learns her sister, catalogue and runway model Trésor DeMarche, has died under mysterious circumstances. The police are quick to rule the death a suicide but she knows there is more to the story than meets the eye. Wrapped in a Love Affair… Trésor’s lover, Rory Krieger, is dangerous for all the right reasons: he’s wealthy, successful, drop-dead gorgeous and owns some of the most exclusive BDSM clubs in the country. Aurélie is shocked to find out her sister was part of this sub-culture but she soon realizes in order to solve a mystery, she will to have to infiltrate a closed community where reality is an altered state of mind. Of Bondage, Domination, Sadism and Masochism… Aurélie quickly finds out not only is she no match for the multifaceted and intelligent Rory, his life with Trésor was a lot more complicated than imagined. An indecent proposal leads to more than a night of passion, and raises more questions than answers. What happens when there is no where to go but deeper before the truth is revealed?

Review Rating: 4.5 LIGHTNING BOLTS 

Review: Sizzling, sexy, and suspenseful. These are three strong words to describe Killing Time.  I was engaged from the start.  Aurelie is a heroine with many scars in her past, and it makes her believable. Someone that any woman could easily relate to in one way or another.  She has a lot to deal with now, because she hasn't spoken to her sister in so long, and now that chance has gone. 

Filled with riveting suspense, captivating characters, and a plot filled with twists and turns, Killing Time kept me awake late in to the night hours. It sizzles, it thrills and it keeps the pages flying. I like this author's voice and the way she kept the tension strong from start to finish.
