The second book in the 'Men by Numbers' series, 'Six' had many of the characteristics of a terrific, dark story. There was plenty of danger and Ker Dukey certainly doesn't shy away from graphic, disturbing content like many authors do. I applaud her for that. If you're going to write a dark story, I think you need to take that dive and not toe the line.

This is the story of Taylor Jake, aka "Six". As a teenager, Six was bounced between foster homes before eventually ending up on the streets. His

"She's a saint and I'm a sinner."

I have been obsessed with Six since the moment I met him in the previous book Ten. I have a thing for "tortured" heroes because they think they don't deserve to be happy or find love. They are wrestling with their inner demons on a daily basis. It was the same for Six, we get to see what his demons are early on in the story. Those scenes were heartbreaking!

I devoured this book in a few hours! You know that feeling when you close a book and realise you've been immersed so fully that you have no clue what was going on around you. I was glued to this book, nothing outside these pages was going to matter until I read every last word.

So many emotions were brought to the surface. It wouldn't be a Dukey book without a twist sucker punching me into submission. I loved every single thing about this story. From laughs to tears, I enjoyed it all. You better

After reading Ten, I was quite excited to get into Six' story.  He was a very intriguing character, from the time he had spent in prison to the parade of people leaving his house each morning.  He seemed like such a good guy in the way that he had treated Alex; I was dying to learn more about him and the road that had led him to be the person he had become.

Several days after finishing this book I am still unsure what exactly to say about it.  There were parts of it that were excellent; where eve

Hot I Loved Six

Six *Swoon* another great read from Ker,

We may have waited a bit longer than expect for Six but trust me he is worth the wait.
I couldn’t put this book down once I started.

It is Very HOT in places and I really Loved the Characters, Not going say much as I don’t want to spoil it for others but if you Love Ker’s books you really don’t want to miss reading this one.
Few Twists I really didn’t see coming.

I can’t wait to see what Ker has in store for us next.

Six, is the second book in a standalone series. You meet Six, in Ten. You can read this series out of order if you'd like.
Six is a tortured soul with revenge running through his veins. He's out for blood and will stop at nothing to get it. He doesn't let many people close, he knows what it's like to lose someone you care about. Even when they are still with you in the physical sen

I couldn't get invested in this story. All of the stuff about Six's messed up life was good. He was living in the past so much that it was hard to care about his current relationship with Misty. I wish there had been better emotional closure about his past. The ending felt rushed. If parts hadn't been from his POV, I never would have believed he genuinely cared about Misty. She deserved better. Misty was nice. There's really not much more to say about her because there wasn't much to kn
Six has been ruined for me. I loved him in the first in this series. Like LOVED. HIM. He was a BBF in the making. Like, TDF BBF in the making. Maybe I'll just cut and paste my favorite parts of this book together so he can still be my BBF.

He was the only saving grace in the first of this series, Ten...which reminded me of another book's plot. The entire time I read Ten I had to keep telling myself published authors don't steal plotting from other published authors.

A man held hostage by his demons.

A man who can’t see beyond his past in order to reach for a future.

A vow to avenge

A vow to make “them” pay

A past written in black and red ink

A chance to begin anew…to live a life based on more than revenge.

A woman who sees beyond his past…beyond his actions and wants to make a life with him.

I had been looking forward to reading about Six ever since we were first introduced to him in Ten (book 1) And I can say it satisfied me in every way possible. Six is a man fresh out of prison looking to seek revenge for those who wronged him and hurt someone he loved very dearly. Biding his time and rebuilding his life until the time is right, he won't let anyone get close to him beyond friendships. Then Misty walks through the door of his bar, becomes his new bar manager and Six really struggl ...more

Ker wove a very unique story of love of various types and and on various levels, love lost, lust, revenge and how family sticks together and will do WHATEVER it takes to calm the soul of the victim, even if it means giving up apart of yourself.

Six is a man who has seen a lot, lived a lot, and life has taught him that love hurts, and can even kill. To him, he didn't want any part of that, until he meets one "innocent" girl, or so he thought, and he wasn't about to taint her, nor was he about to l

Let me start by saying, I love Ker's work. She's one of my favorite "dark" authors, and I've read everything she's written.

This is hands down, my favorite book of hers. And Six, by far, is my favorite character.

I was excited for his book after the first Men by Numbers book, Ten. It's there that we catch the first glimpse of him, and boy does that leave you wanting more. Thankfully Ker delivers!

Six is the second book in her Men of Number’s series. It can be read as a standalone. Six grew up in foster care, in and out of different houses. He grew up seeing things I can’t even imagine. So it was no mystery why he joined a gang. It was easy money, fit his personality, and he felt like he belonged. But those choices when you are young sometimes haunt. His only friend was Hailey was punished for his connections. But Six isn’t a man to sit back and let things go unpunished, he will make them ...more

5 stars!!! Another great book for Ker!!!

I will be leaving my review vague, because I refuse to ruin this book for anyone. But if you are familiar with Ker's books, then you know exactly what you are getting your hands on. This book is packed full of darkness, twists, and complete suspense! I love this series and I can't get enough of it. And I know you'll feel the same way!!!

We first meet Six who is Ten's friend in the book (Ten, Men by Numbers book 1) and learn a little about him and how Ten met Six in prison this is Six's book and how he came to be the person he is.

I really enjoyed this book because we get to find out about Six's past. We learned a little about him in Ten's book but it made me want to learn his story. Six has a sad past but he did what he did out of love and vengeance. We also meet Six's love interest Misty. She has the hots for him and so does h

Once again Ker Dukey doesn't disappoint. This book sucked me in and I had to read it from start to finish in one day. This story is about Six who you briefly saw in Ten. You follow his demons from beginning to end and hope he gets his happily ever after. If you love sin, sex, and will love this book!

Book Review - Six by Ker Dukey - 4 Love Hurts & Heals

From the minute we are introduced to Six in Ten, I was invested - desperate to find out his back story and how he moved on from losing the love of his life.

In Six, we go all the way back to the beginning to find out what went down. There is a lot more to the original story than would first appear and as we flick between past and present, you see how much the past still haunts Six.

In the present, we have Misty, whom Six doesn’t want to be d
