We came from nothing and were given a second chance at life, and life was pretty good until it tipped on its axis and my world came tumbling down around me.

My Baby Sister is missing…

I’ve never felt this helpless before now, the vacant hole inside me expanding with each passing second of not knowing where she is.
What’s she going through?
Is she hurt?

"All the warnings from education, from Mom and my big sister, Winter, and yet I still find myself here...Stolen...Lost."

A quest to find a missing sister leads the heroine, Winter encountering some very dangerous people.

"This wasn't me finding him, this was him, this was him allowing me to find him. What was his end game?"

There were a few scenes that didn't work for me: the random girl on campus with her proclamations and how about Cole's know how with blood play? A huge part of

I loved the "Façade" books. It's hard to believe those and this book were written by the same people.

Welcome to...


The very first sentence of the book is butchered:

"Summer has always been my favorite time of the year, my mother must have known when naming me that I would seek out the sun."

For the next six percent, nearly every sentence reads with errors like....

”4.5 Stars”

Summer Kelly, a happy teenager, is gone without a trace. There are no real clues, but her description fits the pattern of a local serial killer called the Angel Killer. Winter Kelly is Summer’s older sister who is a college student with aspirations of becoming a detective specializing in psychological profiling. As children, their lives were difficult and disturbing, but Winter absorbed all the darkness and protected Summer in every way possible way. Now that Summer is missing, Winter

"I wanted you the moment I laid eyes on you at your parents. I've never wanted anything so much. You're a delicacy, Win, an exquisite creature that deserves to bleed pleasure"

Words cannot describe how much I loved this book! A romantic thriller unlike which I have read before! The suspenseful themes were SUPER creepy and the sex scenes were scorchingly hot!

So why not 5+++ stars? That ending. It felt a bit rushed and it left a lot of questions unanswered- such as (vi

As usual these fantastic authors gave me a high dose of mind fucking! I loved it BUT the end.. I mean.... ALL of that and then it's just over?! Wtf?! I was adrenaline stoked and fucking grasping for answers and then... The End... Ugh! I feel like my mind has been fucked -hard -but at the last minute they pulled out!

There was no need to read the blurb, these 2 authors are a "go-to" for me.... It's time to get back a little darkness in my life :)
3.75 stars

I really liked certain elements of this story:

Multiple POVs ✔
Strong heroine ✔
Suspenseful ✔
Great action scenes ✔

This book started out great but somehow fell a bit short for me. While the heroine was busy extracting enough information to find her kidnapped sister, the hero seemed to be available mostly to provide back-up and be a willing guard dog. He was a detective and yet the police department's aspect surrounding the disappearance was fairly absent from the story. I wondered what he

Sinister, dark, chilling and very disturbing, not for the feint of heart or those with triggers. How far would you go to save a child's life? Now imagine that child is your blood, your family and time is running out.

For me this was hard hitting because of human filth that targets children and sadly knowing these monsters are really out there. Ker Dukey did an amazing job bringing this heinous nightmare into reality with what happened to Summer! Five star dark read!

Another sadistic, roller-coaster ride from this dynamic duo. Plug in your night light and enjoy.

Serial killers are their own kind of breed, not human but wear a human face to lure their prey.

D H Sidebottom and Ker Dukey have proven themselves yet again. You don't know where one starts and the other begins. It's been a game I like to play, who wrote what? Lost is no exception. A twisted games of cat and mouse, sadistic characters, and a story that will keep you on your toes. I loved ev

When two greats minds join together they come up with one brilliant story. I opened my kindle to read a chapter or two before going to sleep. I didn't put my kindle down until I'd finished reading the whole story. I was literally gripped. That was two days ago and the book is still rolling around in my head. I'm now still struggling to put into words how brilliant this was. I doubt I'll be able to do it justice but I'll try.

This was a freakishly dark and intriguing story by the queens of torture and darkness. I was literally sat on the corner of my couch pondering how these two keep coming up with new ways to twist my mind in two.

Winter and Summer had a rough and tragic start to life. Winter is now a college student; studying to be in the criminal justice field, when she gets the devastating news her little sister has gone missing.

Well I don’t even know where to start with this review I loved this book.
I love all the books that Dawn and Ker have wrote, but I am going to be totally honest This has to be my favourite to Date!

Both Winter and Summer came from nothing only to have a second chance at Life that is until Summer goes missing.

Winter feels helpless she starts investigating to try and find her,

The more she learns of her disappearance the more fear implants itself inside her heart.

Ker and DH does it again for me! She always gets me engulfed in the story that I don't see the twist coming. I just wish the story was a bit longer. Other than that it was fast paced and suspenseful, it actually felt like I was watching a movie. Except I was reading it haha. I hope these two authors continue to write with each other in the future. They are the dark queens in my book. I would recommend this book

Even though I figured out quite early on who had taken Summer it did not take away from my overall enjoyment of the book, in fact I really enjoyed it. What took away from my overall enjoyment was the wrong tense being used, words that were randomly dropped into sentences that made them make no sense and typos.

This book has a DARK/BDSM/THRILLER genre to it. If these things cause you triggers, this may not be the book for you.
I usually love every book I pick up from this author, but sadly, this one just didn't so it for me.

Such pain in this story! Winter and her sister, Summer, survive the worst childhood imaginable, they are blessed with a few good years with their adoptive parents, and BOOM the tragedy resumes! Do you believe in fate? Do you believe fate is so cruel to allow one to survive un

I was up and pacing while reading this story, it's one that grabs you and doesn't let go. I could not put this down and always wanting to know what was going to happen next.
There is so much happening but always keeping you guessing, this poor poor sister duo and the life they have had truly will touch you. There are of course many hot scenes and also scenes full of heart.

Very adult content!
Mind boggling. I can never guess where it's going to end up..
When Winter's sister, Summer, goes missing, Winter will stop at NOTHING to find her.
The things she will do! The limits she goes to!
I felt her desperation, her helplessness. My heart had palpitations at the situations she put herself in.

I would like to add this book may have more horror than dark aspects IMO...
I liked this book. It was wonderfully dark and twisted. It was an easy book to read and I was able to get through it quickly. I loved how it was told from multiple points of view of different, important players in the story. I love that in this author's books, what you read isn't always as it seems and this book is no exception. It makes them good books to read. As to the 'who done it?' of the story, I didn't work out who it was until Winter did. I liked that. There are clues throughout as to wh ...more

I received an ARC for my honest review.

I have read all of D.H Sidebottom and Ker Dukey's collaborations, and I have to admit that to me this is the best one yet!

Winter is in school to become a Police officer. When she finds that her younger sister Summer has gone missing all leads point to a serial killer the press have dubbed 'Angel'. Winter is a fiery hot headed woman with a lot of darkness in her past, and she sets out to find her sister and kill the notorious 'Angel'.

“A shudder shakes my chest as I forbid the sob its freedom, it belongs inside me where it can’t hurt, where it can’t feed the memories.”

Winter and Summer have the worst imaginable childhood. Their mother was a drug addicted whore who used Winter as her payment for her habits. One night the payment went too far, and Winter took matters into her own hands. Cole was a young detective who wanted to help Winter, so when she called that night he was there.

Seven years later life is perfect for Winter a

These women have such complex minds and are so in sync with each other that if they didn't have both of their names on the book you would never know that this was a collaboration of two literary geniuses. And let me tell you, Ker and Dawn just keep Getting better and better with each of their collaborations.
