I would like to thank Mira Books for sending me ARC.
So, The Kill Club is an adult thriller-let me just put that out there. I seem to be reading a lot of thrillers lately and I must say that I am really enjoying my time reading this genre. I did really enjoy a lot about this book. I love the idea of a murder club and having to kill people in order for someone who don’t like to die. This concept is really what pulled me into this book. Wow, was it done really good. You had no idea who was really the killers and who was the targets. A lot of times this role was actually switched around. I just loved the suspense that surrounded it and how we just really didn’t know what was going to happen from one minute to the next. It was this that really sucked me in and I read huge chunks of this book in one sitting.
The characters were developed pretty well. Wendy did keep a lot about them from us, which was great. I love getting fed bits of information about our characters as we read. It really does keep us guessing until the end. However, I do have to say that the ending really didn’t make any sense to me. I’m just putting that out there.
Anyway, I love Jazz. She has a rough life and is very rough around the edges, but as you get deeper into her character, you get to see another side of her. You see that she care so much about those who she loves and will do anything for them-even if it means breaking the law. It is this love for her younger and sweet brother that gets her involved in the kill club. What I love about this book was the relationship between Jazz and Joaquin. I love how she will do anything for him and how he just loves her. I just love books that explore the relationships between siblings.
This book does a lesbian relationship in it. However, unlike other books I’ve read, this one didn’t feel like it was just trying to get LBGTQ in it. This relationship made sense and you could actually feel the bonds between the characters. This is what I love about romance in books. I want a relationship that feels real and makes sense. I don’t want it for the sake of trying to claim that your book is diverse. So thank you for doing something that makes sense.
Anyway, it was ending that made me give it a four star instead of a five star. The big reveal just really bothered for some reason.
Anyway this book comes out on December 17, 2019.
