It's dangerous. Reckless. Exhilarating.

Richard enjoys watching him in the interrogation room, his eyes coveting the way the cigarette easily slid between his lips. For a brief moment, his fingers yearn to trace the tattoos wrapped around his toned flesh. If he squints, he can focus on those emerald-green eyes, haunting yet so familiar. Everything about the man p

Start your review of Weeps Indigo (Weeps Indigo, #1)
This is an exciting piece of fiction that amalgamates the elements of subtle thrill, romance and eroticism. The storyline is refreshing and the characters are intricately crafted. Each of them has a dimension of their own and are very much layered. The story slowly picks up pace and by the time you turn the last page you are essentially hooked to it. The ending leaves you wanting to find out what happens next. Apart from the story what sets this book apart is the effortless writing. It is extrem ...more

This is not a happy or light story, but it will make you think and it will make you read through to the end in one sitting. The subject matter is very interesting, there is a cop who has an interest for an under aged teen boy and he pretty much can’t cope with that. With a theme like that, you better know how to present and develop your characters, and it is done very well here. As I was reading, I developed a real understanding and a feel for what characters were going through, and that emotion ...more

I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to read this story but, I'm so happy that I did. The characters are profoundly three dimensional, raw and flawlessly executed. Richard is a gritty and sometime infuriating protagonist that you can't help but love and support. I love how J.K. Jones writes these people as empathetically flawed, no good guys or bad guys. Just people who have found themselves in outrageous circumstances and doing the best they can. Richard and Beau are all of us, me, you, ...more

As soon as I started reading the first few sentences I thought to myself "ooooh! This going to be good" for me what makes a good book a good/great book is drama, mystery, and explicitness and J. K Jones does just that, already on the edge of my seat and only two pages into it. It's definitely a read that will not only open up your vocabulary but will give you a new appreciation for its originality and uniqueness! Bravo! ...more

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review

It was horrible, but I could not look away

This is what people say when they describe something terrible they have witnessed. And for me, this thing was Richard's life going down the hill. One moment here he is having everything, and the next - risking it all. But for what?

Main characters:
Richard Clayson - a Police Commissioner, has a great job, nice family, and loyal friends and colleagues
Kelly - Richard's wife, the poor woman

This is a very hard review for me.

Personally I try to write what I felt while reading a book. Even if it's for a favourite writer, if i don't like a book I slay it.

In this book while I was heading to slash the whole book. I read the author's bio and saw that it's her 1st... Hence I got softhearted... Also it seems to be a series which I mistakenly started reading before it's 3 books already. I have a rule never to start a series unless it's at least 3 books ripe.


Needs serious editing.

Part 1 of a thrilling and tragic story of M/M infatuation and first times
I can’t wait to read its sequel, CAGE THE NIGHT, hoping book #2 will clarify and complete this book. Warning: there are some truly repulsive nightmares plaguing Richard which we see how debilitating they are to him.
My favorite M/M sub-genre is straight to gay which this is but we’re dealing with some dark subject matter. There is a murder which prompts looking more deeply until they find some very unsettling things happenin

Police Commissioner Richard has a lovely wife and family, stops at nothing to get justice for those who have been wronged and works day and night to solve his cases. Although everything seems perfect on the surface, an encounter with a handsome teenage prostitute unexpectedly brings out Richard’s hidden sexual desires and fantasies. What ensues is a constant internal struggle for Richard between satisfying his darkest desires and staying true to his life and family. The author has built Beau and ...more

Dark and Delicious mm Story

Warning the note that says that this book is dark is true. On the other hand this book is poetic. Sounds like they couldn’t be the same book but they are. The titular “hero” of this book is Richard, a small town sheriff who went to war and came back with ptsd. He married his high school sweetheart and has a house and two kids but he is slowly crumbling as he is haunted by his “demon” which is that he likes men in what he has been taught to feel is the wrong way.

Well, that's a fine pickle he got himself in. Richard, Sheriff suffers from PTSD. Most times, he has it under control. But when he doesn't, he spends a lot of time spinning in circles and scaring his wife, Lana. He detaches and distances himself from his kids Kyle and Ida, who sound absolutely adorable. He feels the responsibility of his office for the townsfolk. Like most lawpersons, he feels protective of the citizens he promised to protect. He is investigating a murder which has gone cold, bu ...more

Be careful of the multiple triggers

I have mixed emotions about this book. It was psychologically painful to read and twisted my mind in different directions. First let me say there are several triggers so please use caution if you happen to be one that is sensitive to them. I can’t honestly tell if I liked this book or not. It was twisted. Centered around the relationship of a married sheriff who uses a young prostitute to calm his demons, the book has so many layers it’s ridiculous. There were

J. K. Jones' "Weeps Indigo" is her debut book and sets the stage for her upcoming works.
The story revolves around 2 men, who appear quite different from each other but harbour passionate feelings at the same time. These feelings eventually manifest themselves in the form of a twisted encounter which leads them both to re-think their lives. Written in a slightly informal manner, the dialogues and imagery serve to show how the story has several angles to it. These include (but are not limited to)

I liked this book. It made me uncomfortable, curious, and engaged. The author did a great job developing the age-gap and obsessive relationship between Richard and Beau.

Richard Clayson is a small-town sheriff. While investigating the murder of a respectable town resident he is irresistibly drawn to Beau Blackwell, a young man from the wrong side of town with a shady background. The more contact he has with Beau, the deeper Richard's obsession grows. As the case heats up and evidence is showing t

I may have missed it but if I did I’m sorry I didn’t realize when I read this it is a cliffhanger. The story is good. An obsessed sheriff who c an’t get an under aged teen out of his head. The teen has a town reputation for being a prostitute yet the sheriff gets involved with him. Where the story leads is very taboo. Where the truth starts to come out is a real twist. I think the sheriff may be a little to strong emotionally. I don’t think a guy like this would last long in any kind of career d ...more

Entrancing & genuinely thought-provoking!
Weeps Indigo didn't fall short of the book description outlined on its retail page. Centred on the twisted and somewhat profound infatuation between two unlikely people, I was hooked to each and every line. The story progressed in a fast-paced manner and adequately covered all areas thereby excluding the possibility of plot holes. J. K. Jones certainly possesses the ability to keep a reader gripped to the story.
In contrast, I do believe the book could u

This is a hard story for me to read in the beginning. I honestly struggled with the writing. I kept going and did get into it. The writing actually fit the personality of the characters. With that being said, I honestly like it! Richard is the police commissioner (with a wife) but is having dark sexual desires about a male teenage prostitute. He used the prostitute to exercise his demons. The story is multi layered. I’m curious as to the next in the story line, as this ended on a cliffhanger. I ...more

I recently saw a true crime tv show about a decorated state police officer who was eventually unmasked as an assaulter of women and eventual murderer of a young woman. This book gave me the same kind of vibes. We have a sheriff here who becomes obsessed/involved with a young man who should be off limits for so many reasons. This book ends on a cliffhanger, so we have to wait for the next book to get some questions answered. If you are bothered by dark stories and taboo relationships, this isn't ...more

Shelves: mmrc-2018
A dark, seductive, and suspenseful story of the obsessive infatuation of a middle-aged police chief in a small town of the deep South. It's a narrative both disturbing and sympathetic, both alienating and relatable, sometimes hallucinatory, sometimes procedural, recounted in masterful prose by (surprisingly) a first-time author. Kudos to J.K. Jones. It'd be light work for an editor to buff out quite minor and mildly distracting imperfections. It seems this is the first volume of a continuing ser ...more

Weeps Indigo is a poignant and contemporary story which focuses on highlighting the need for wholesome expression. J.K. Jones has done a truly wonderful job coming up with Beau and Richard, with their relationship being the "draw-in" feature. Written in a conversational manner, the writing flows extremely well and I ended up finishing the whole book in one go. Perhaps, the ending was slightly underwhelming and run-of-the-mill but I wonder if I would have liked a different ending as well. Overall ...more

This piece of literacy has been crafted and so delicately written. If books could talk this would be screaming pick me. The complexity of the characters and how everything seems to move so in sync. Incredible. This author has such an imagination and pulls it straight from their mind into yours. I could almost feel myself in Richard’s life. Oh and all the cliff hangers. Amazing. Signed straight up to the updates for the next writing. This self published author deserves so much credit and more. Wi ...more

This book includes some dark themes, but nonetheless, it was exceptionally interesting.
I was captivated right from the first page and finished it in a single sitting.
The characters were relatable, real and well fleshed out.
The author's writing style was compelling and appealed to me.
The blurb captured my interest and I am glad that I picked this one up.

This was definitely very intriguing and mystery surrounding the plot added additional an additional depth to the storyline.

There were some grammar and editing issues but it didn't take away the beautifully written prose and the hauntingly exhibition of a man drowned in lust for an underage prostitute.

One thing I really admired about the author and the story is the courage of using an underage prostitute as a MC. Usually authors s shy away from realism and always make their MCs at least18.

I'll definitely read more from this author.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A first read for the author with this book.
A okay start with Richard asking all the questions to Beau. This is an MM dark mystery story with lots of triggers..
Written in 3rd person. I call DNF at 43%. Bad editing errors included.

What more is there to say or words describe. Without giving away anything, all I can reveal is this story is pulled together so well from start to finish. I found myself to be stuck hanging on every word, I couldn’t put the book down. And the fact this is a self published author! The feeling of heart and soul on the page is incredible. Can’t wait to discover what lies in store in the rest of the series. If you’re after a detective genre with a beautiful, refreshing twist. Look no further.

A dark and disturbing book. Richard is a sheriff, married, and a closet gay. He's drawn to Beau. Beau is under aged and a prostitute. The book will have your attention from start to finish and you can't help but finish it in one sitting. There's no romance, a lot of angst, and very emotional. Richard is dealing with a murder, his family, coworkers, and his feeling for Beau. I'm looking forward to the next book. ...more

I’m not sure who read what, but this is poorly written. I’ve no clue what anyone else read, but it surely couldn’t have been this. It is in the worst kind of need of a good editor. Poorly structured sentences, misspellings, bad punctuation, as in lack of punctuation. It’s a mess.

As it so happens, J.K Jones is the author of a gritty, fun, action-packed, soul-rending novel. Her characters are so dark and twisted they defy the dimensions of this world.
