I don’t think you can read one of these book without the other. This is not because they can’t be read as a stand-alone. Either one can be. But that’s not my point. My point is this character, Jason Wright. This is one of those few characters that pull you in and make you want to read more and more about their lives. Actually, no different than those few friends in your life. That’s what K.L. Lamar has done. Made you intimately care about a fictional character. Made them come alive. That’s good writing.
Both stories are well-written and not terribly unrealistic. Both will touch you with their family ties and will shock you with the ends a person will go to both for revenge and for love.
These are both definite sit on the edge of your seat thrillers. In researching it looks to me like this may be a debut series for K. L. Lamar. Blood Ties is Book 1 in a series called “A Jason Wright Novel”. Book 2, also listed here is titled Blood Secrets. Looks to me like we’d better hope for Book 3!
