Review: Fear You by B B Reid

Lake Monroe has given in to her childhood tormentor too many times. She knows it, he knows it, and even their enemies know it. When he returned after being found guilty of a crime he didn't commit—a crime he thought she set him up for, he returned darker than ever, demanding her body and her submission. To survive him, she knew she had to give in to fear once more or suffer the deadly consequences...

But Lake experienced what it was like to submit to the dark and demanding boy who invaded her dreams. Now she’ll experience what it’s like to fight him.

What happens when he wants more?

Keiran Masters has a past that is both shocking and dark. Once enslaved, he now has demons he can’t escape—demons that have followed him for ten years, demons he blames his beautiful obsession for. He promised to make her pay. He promised to make her break...

But when Keiran conquered her body and tasted her submission, he found a new addiction instead—one he has no intentions of giving up.

As secrets unfold,
Identities are revealed, 
Danger closes in,
And they both discover what it really means to fear...

4.5 Fearless Stars!

Review by Lisa Kane

Sometimes a book comes along and it stays with you. You might read twenty books after it, but it becomes one of your "go to" books. The ones you read when you want familiarity; when you just want to get lost in a book you loved. Fear Me became one of those books. Lake and Keiran's messed up, sexed up, f#*ked up romance gave me everything I love in a great story. Drama, sex, angst, humor and in their case, even a little suspense. Would I find the same magic with Fear You?

Keiran Masters has bullied Lake Monroe for the last ten years. In his twisted mind, she reminds him of a little girl, Lily who had a profound effect on his life. Keiran insists that his obsession with Lake is just that-an obsession; nothing more. When Fear Me ended, Keiran had rejected Lake in order to protect her from his father, Mitch; Keenan (his cousin) was shot and was in critical condition and had betrayed his girlfriend Sheldon again, and their good friends Willow and Dash still were at odds with each other. 

Fear You answers most of the lingering questions that spilled over from Fear Me. Keiran is in jail because of Lake's accusations that he killed Anya and Trevor. He is out for her blood. But at the same time, his obsession and need for her hasn't lessened and he craves her more than ever. Lake thinks she has some time before he will get out of jail and she is trying to get her life together. Some ugly facts about her aunt's whereabouts during her six week absence are starting to pop up. Lake can't handle any information about her parents' mysterious deaths. 

When Keiran gets out, Lake is afraid that he will want revenge-she knows she will be caught in the crosshairs, but she's afraid so will her aunt and those she cares about. She won't be a victim anymore. This is a stronger, although still naive, Lake. Keiran is frustrated beyond belief, he must remain in control. Losing his control of Lake is messing with his head. Sex with her has always guaranteed her submission. But things are changing!

Neither one of them will admit their feelings for each other go way beyond lust. Keiran is still the Alpha male to the max and is willing to hurt anyone who tries to touch Lake. There are so many unscrupulous players in this book. Keiran's childhood history of being a killer slave dominates much of the storyline. The adults who ran these slave trades are interwoven in the story's fabric and Keiran is playing a dangerous game of revenge. That game is going to risk both his and Lake's lives. 

"If you ever let another man touch you, I will kill you on the spot. Are we clear?"

In spite of the suspense and drama surrounding the mystery of Keiran's parents and his childhood, Fear You remains a love story about two people, drawn together by their incredible chemistry, who are determined to deny their love for each other. But sometimes, in spite of their best efforts, their hearts will overrule their heads' objections. They may have a love/hate relationship, but no matter how many times each rejects the other, they are constantly pulled back in. But can they ever have any kind of normalcy in their relationship? Will fear and control always be an overriding factor between them? Is it okay for two people to be broken as long as their broken pieces fit together as a whole? 

Eventually, she would want more, and I would once again become the monster that tormented her in high school when I realized I was unable to give her what she needed. 
Fear You did not disappoint! So many of my questions were answered. Keiran will probably always be an anti-hero, it's who he is and that's okay with Lake. Now if we can only get Sheldon and Keenan back on track!
