Blog Tour: Reprisal by Christa Lynn

A Dark Erotic Thriller 

Mature Adult 18+ Only 

This novel is a work of fiction and contains strong sexual situations and violence that may be disturbing to some readers. 

Read at your own risk. 

Sydney DeCarlo has a dark past, one she prefers to keep in the past. She’s a survivor and has made her living counselling kids who have also survived the same nightmare. When the FBI and NYPD call her in to assist on a case, her past comes roaring back. 

Enter Detective Gabriel Torres. 

Gabe is talk, dark and handsome and immediately feels a connection with Sydney. Sydney's been called in to assist in the investigation of raped and murdered young women and he’s not sure she’s the right person for the job. 
But Sydney’s connection to this case is more than anyone could ever imagine. Can Gabe save her from her past? Or will her nightmare be the death of her?

I am married and have a teenage son. I live in the Atlanta, GA area and I enjoy reading and writing. I went to bed one night after reading a book that wasn't very good and thought to myself, " I can do better than that." So the next morning I got up and started pounding away at the keyboard. My first book hides in the bowels of my laptop collecting dust. My first published novel, Running from Destiny, released in October of 2013. The sequel, Accepting Destiny just released in January 2014. My newest release is Reprisal - A Dark, Erotic Thriller.  All books are Mature adult and recommended for ages 18 and up only.

Other Books by Christa Lynn

You know how a book comes along just at the right moment in your reading cycle? Well this is one of those books. It was like watching a murder mystery show with a side of romance served up. I was sold from the start. I loved Syd, and her strength was truly amazing. This isn't your stroll through the park hand in hand romance novel. The characters have suffered through events that most would never recover from, or even survive. This is my first book from this author, and it won't be my last. She kept me engaged the whole time. 

Gabe... I loved his strength and determination to be the rock that Sydney needed. Their connection wasn't fireworks lighting up the sky; it was a connection made of a vulnerability to love again and a determination to heal. Gabe never backed down. He was willing to fight for Syd -even when she was ready to run, he always chased after. They both exuded strength in their own right, but together they conquered the impossible- the fight to live.

You can't help but fall in love with Gabe and Sydney. They will both frustrate you as they work out the kinks in finding the difference between fighting against each other and fighting for each other. Strong-minded characters pair up well with a strong intense story.

This book was like Criminal Minds meets every alpha male I have ever loved, mixed with some CSI and sprinkled with mystery and hot sex…fuck yeah!! 

The insta-love connection that can only happen when the lead male is an alpha, loyal, demanding, hot son-of-a-bitch, is not for everyone; but in this case it works perfectly.  The scene is set before each have any clue who the other is, they are completely drawn to each other.  Check please!

An erotic thriller is a perfect tag for this story, but dark? It is not a smell the roses and kiss your forehead kind of tale, these two are forensic cops on the trail of murderers that don’t kill politely.  The scene is set for violence but not between the two leads, they are just thrust into a mystery that runs deeper than they could ever imagine.

Sydney is not looking for love and Gabe definitely isn’t searching for his happily ever after.  But when lives are threatened and lines are drawn, a love is found and isn’t that what we all want? 

This book will keep you guessing, having you scream out your thoughts and plots, and a wet panty spot could definitely be in your near future…
