In the corner house of an empty street, there is a boy inside a box. In that boy, there lives a secret, one so dark, it’s sealed with locks.

Nearly ten years have passed since the night I was captured. Tricked and betrayed, I suffered the hours of brutal torment with death’s cold whisper across my skin. And when the nameless faces that haunt

➦Ok, so FIRST OF ALL. I'm seriously obsessed with this cover. I'm a big sucker for a pretty face. And this guy is trying to look menacing but I'm not quite sure he's pulling it of. Either way, I am experiencing urges to lick the screen.

➦Secondly, I can't believe more people aren't reading Keri Lake's books because her stuff is amazing! So well written, with though-out characters. For the fans of dark romance, this one is a must. You will definitely enjoy the heck out of this mysterious, torture

Keri Lake is an incredible mastermind of plotting out books. The possibilities in her stories are vast and you never know where they will take you. Intrepid is set in the Vigilante world, a bleak Detroit, saturated with crime, underground and above. It's where we meet Sera, a Criminal Justice student who lost her mother at a young age.

What I love about Keri Lake's heroines is that they are never doormats. Ever. They aren't innocent, naive flowers. These heroines come w

POV: First Person Dual

Serafina (Sera) Kutscher was finally free of the shackles that prevented her to live her life on her own rules. But a newfound freedom in a dangerous city could be short-lived especially if she didn't protect her heart.

For the past few years Ty's life had been fueled by revenge. Vowed to right the wrongs, he was willing to do anything to find closure. But fate had a way to throw in a wrench and he must de

RATING: 4.5 'No Regrets' Hearts!! <3


Intrepid is another darkly intoxicating addition to the Vigilantes series, each chapter nonchalantly making way for fear and panic to sink their razor-sharp claws into our minds before giving us a tantalizing taste of romantic clemency.

Ty is an outstanding protagonist, his transformation from an innocent boy to an angry and hardened man with revenge as his primary calling card is impeccably depicted. As Ty narrates his past, the innumerable injustices and h

It was my 1st book by this author.
Fabulous writing. It’s always a pleasure to discover a really talented author.

Dark is not my preferred genre, but if it’s dark on a good side (where they don’t romanize abuse/rape etc), I can and do read it.
The darkness of this book was definitely on the good side – they killed 4 pedophiles. What can be better?! Only if the killed more/all of these disgusting fuckers!

Ty is a man fueled by pain and vengeance. Vowing to uphold his promise, Ty begins to exact his carefully constructed plan and hopes to silence his inner demons. However, he is challenged in an unforeseen way and must balance the need for justice versus destruction.

“Because although that first kill was sloppy and terrifying, there was also something deeply satisfying about silencing the screams.”

Dark, gritty, unapologetic, and everything I've come to expect from the genius twisted mind that is Keri Lake. This latest installment in her Vigilantes series is one dark and thrilling ride and it's not for the faint of heart. With just the right touch of sexy, Intrepid was brimming with violence and overflowing with passion. I loved every deliciously depraved page of it.

Have you ever read a book written by Keri Lake ? If the answer is no and if you are a reader not only a romance reader but someone who loves reading in general, you should consider it right now.

Woohoo what a ride! Hop onto that crazy train for a thrill that's going to leave you in a puddle on the floor!

I'm utterly in love (and love is putting it mildly)  with Keri Lake's work. Her characters, her storyline, her writing style and last but definitely not least the atmosphere of Interpid, once again blew my mind.

Sera and Ty are fantastic. So easy to relate to, although they have such complex and damaged personalities.

"She made me reckless. Fearless. Intrepid."

So here is one more addition to Ker Lake's amazing broken yet deadly heroes and strong yet passionate heroines. And just Like Keri's other books, this one was damn intense too, it even gave me goosebumps at certain points along with some few unwilling tears.

But I liked it!!

What a fucking ride!

Until I finished reading Intrepid, I didn't realize how much I had missed Keri's beautifully depraved writing style. She needs to release a book every month to fix my addiction to her words.

Intrepid is EVERYTHING you'd expect from Keri Lake and more! Her words are the best kind of torture. Ty and Sera's story had my heart-pounding in more ways than one. For two nights, sleep was not an option. It was as if my life depended on every word, every sentence I read.

Intrepid knocked my socks off. It's dark, suspenseful, and edgy. The main characters were imperfectly perfect.

Seriously... Keri Lake! Amazing!

If you haven't read her other books, this is a good place to start.

But if you have been following the Vigilantes series, the ending will leave you giddy for the next book!

Intrepid was a wild ride that I couldn't get enough of. My heart was in my throat along with a ball of dread that sat in my stomach for a significant portion of the book. Neither of those things took away from the experience instead they enhanced it, keeping me on the edge of my seat in anticipation of what would happen next.

This book isn't for the faint hearted because of the nature of the topics it deals with but it's a great story, one that I highly recommend. I loved going on

Dark and twisted, this spinoff series from the Vigilantes series, boldly carries the theme of justified payback.

This book starts off in a seemingly innocent way, with two strangers meeting at a party and relying on each other to escape danger. But nothing is as it seems, and perhaps, nothing is a coincidence.

From the get go, I was a little leery of Ty. His random run ins with Sera quickly didn't seem so random. Dare I say stalkerish? The question became, is he there to protect her, or

4.5 Revengeful Stars!

Keri Lake has once again delivered readers a tortured anti-hero and a heroine that is his kryptonite in Intrepid! A man filled with so much rage and gaping emotional wounds, his only focus in life is revenge. Revenge for all the pain and suffering his childhood friend, his family, and he, himself, endured. It’s a game of chess and each pawn will be eliminated.

Intrepid takes place where darkness is almost synonymous to its name- Detroit, Michigan. Crime-riddled, drugs, viole

Intrepid was an awesome read from beginning to end. It was dark, gritty and I spent most of my time reading it on edge, it's definitely not an easy read. What was done to Jameson and Eli was heartbreaking and sickening. I loved Ty and Sera together, they had amazing chemistry. They both have secrets and are full of pain and guilt.

“Have you ever hated someone you were supposed to love, and loved someone you were supposed to hate?”

Keri Lake has a flair for delivering a dark, gritty, uncompromising story, and possesses a true talent for making us feel as though we’re experiencing her words from the very unsettling streets of Detroit she writes about. Her stories feel believable, exhilarating and completely engrossing. In fact, Keri Lake writes about these surroundings so well, we’re starting to fear for her safety! Haha

Oh, Keri Lake, you have taken us on another dark and gritty ride that is shocking, exciting and dangerously sexy, with the story of a ruthless-yet-tormented man seeking vengeance, and the woman that he needs but shouldn’t want.

This book is a spin-off from the Vigilantes series. It is set in the same desperate, crime-riddled Detroit, giving us a gruesome and horrifying look at the criminal underground, but separate from other books in the series and can easily standalone.

Ty and his friend/brother Eli are stolen, imprisoned, abused, tormented and forced to endure and do the unspeakable and only one lives on to right the wrong. But there is corruption, and there is coercion and threats, and there is complete destruction and loss.
