Drake plans to destroy the cartel from within, and he uses his nightclub, Semblance, as a front for money launderin

Review by The Blogger Girls.

This is one of those stories where you have no idea how the MC’s can possibly find a way to be together in the end. Drake is a man set on revenge for the loss of his family and has basically dedicated his life to seeing that through. At this point, he is running a club that is utilized by the cartel he wishes to take down. The same cartel the cops have not yet been able to get close enough to the leader, and when anyone tries, they are found and eliminated, including

This seems to be a debut novel for the author and I’m impressed by the original premise, plot and the kick-butt action and suspense! Semblance is a nightclub owned by Drake, providing a fairly dark, gritty setting as a front for criminal activities. Drake has spent years focused on vengeance against a dangerous cartel, acting as a solo undercover operative with single-minded purpose. He’s gotten his hands dirty a few times but does try to do the right thing when he can. Being the club owner, he' ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.75 stars


Semblance was a gritty, action-packed book that rarely gives the reader a chance to take a breath. The writing is crisp and strong and captured my interest from the opening chapter. One of the biggest things I enjoyed about this book was the realism of it. I’m not talking about the plot, because that’s borderline absurd, but rather the violence and bloody nature of the characters and their actions. Drake tries to be the good guy here and for the most part he is,

Scotty Harden has been working the bar since he was hired by Drake. Scotty is sweet and flirty with Drake, but that’s as far as things have gone. When Drake is faced with the deaths that evolve with tryi

Wow, is this actually the author’s first published work? I totally enjoyed this book, and I’m willing to get on my knees and beg for a sequel. I’m always impressed when a new author can write such a smooth flowing story, a story that grips you tight even while it has you dreading what might happen next. If a blurb mentions the word cartel, I want blood and death and drugs and violence and torture and I want a lot of it. I need my bad guys to be bad, and I need my good guys to be…well, I
