Fearless by BB Reid

Title: Fearless
Series: Broken Love #5
Author: B.B. Reid
Genre: New Adult & Romantic Suspense
 Release Date: April 5, 2016


When faced with broken love…

Have you ever had the feeling you were a stranger?
Out of reach, I watched and mourned me.
Nothing moved. Breathed. Nothing lived.
I was in an alternate universe.
No longer an innocent.
I had blood on my hands, and I wasn’t even sorry for it.
I was only afraid for Keiran.
Of his reaction when the shock wore off.
It would be an explosion.
Of hurt, anger, and mistrust.
He’d know I lied.
And to him…
The betrayal born of my good intentions is worse than the act of murder.

…will you succumb to fear…

She was supposed to be my light.
The one who saved me from the monster.
But when I looked in her eyes that day, I didn’t see her.
I only saw my father’s killer.

Her love saved me from the monster.
Mine turned her into one.

…or will you be fearless?

Review by Lisa Kane

"Forever, Lake. I'll love you."

Fearless brings the Broken Love series full circle. Even after four previous books, so many questions remained unanswered. Who was responsibility for Kennedy's kidnapping and why? Who killed Mitch? Who killed John? Not to mention I wanted closure for Keiran and Lake. Dash and Willow are finally getting the happiness they deserve and have a baby on the way and Keenan and Sheldon have Kennedy and might as well be cemented together. There's no doubt Keenan will never leave or put his girls second in his life. 

When Breaking Love ended, Lake had just gotten arrested for Mitch's murder and Keiran, being Keiran, reacted in a way that had me wanting to kick him in the family jewels. 

This was my woman in trouble. As soon as I got her out of this shit I would wring her neck until I had answers.

After all Lake has suffered from you and all the times she has given her love so unconditionally, he's going to turn on her? Really? 

How could I admit that sometimes four years of love didn't seem long enough to battle ten years of torment? The thought alone was heartbreaking but to voice it felt like betrayal.

But Keiran typically reacts poorly when someone he loves is threatened. His obsession with Lake pushes him over the edge. She is his to protect and he is not going to react in a good way when he finds out she acted behind his back, regardless of her intentions. 

It's how she affected me. She made me want to hurt her and protect her all at once.

But just like every other mystery in this series, there is so much more to Mitch's death than Lake's actions. Most of the story is a web of deceptions and cover ups and lies and some of those are totally unexpected. Lake and Keiran have been keeping things; important things from each other. And we know how they each react to being kept in the dark or lied to-there's going to be lots of drama and angry sex and hurt feelings. 

In five years, Lake had taught me how to love but she hadn't taught me how to forgive. 

The thing I love most about Ms. Reid's writing is her Agatha Christie like style. You've read a chapter, moved on and then out of the blue, pages and pages later, something happens and you realize that what you took at face value pages ago, was not what really happened. There was something else going on, only you didn't know that at the time. And then when it all gets revealed you end up thinking, "why the hell didn't I see that?" 

Lake's transformation from victim to aggressor has been a long time in the making. From the timid girl bullied in Fear Me to the young woman refusing to be dominated in Fear You to the secretive, protective woman she is in Fearless, the change has taken years and is in a large part due to Keiran. She was forced to stand up for herself or she would forever cower in fear. 

I couldn't breathe. I couldn't-"A-are you breaking up with me?"

But it's Keiran who has probably undergone the greatest change of the characters. Motivated strictly by hatred and revenge he is finally at a point where he can (for the most part) think before he lashes out. Even if that thinking is plotting his next move, rather than acting first and then having to deal with the fallout he created by his impetuous actions. Make no mistake, he will kill to protect Lake, but most times he will think first and then react. She is the reason for this and he knows it. He may not be what is best for her, but neither one of them will let the other go. He is her obsession as strongly as she is his. 

So while I knew I could never let her go, a part of me feared we would never be the same.

While there are still some lingering questions (as there should be, otherwise where is Q, Diana and Jesse's story going to go?) almost all are resolved and there is closure. And the's all that I wanted and so much more! 

"I crave your fear and I want you safe. But I need to control you."
