Book Review - Taking Back Brooklyn by K.B. Andrews and Kelly Moore

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Anniek

John has been presumed dead for two years now. During these years he's been tortured numerous times, because he won't give in to the demands of the man who has destroyed his life. One picture changes John's mind. He has found another reason to survive, his son. John vows to do whatever it takes to get back to the life he so desperately needs. He will find a way to be with Brooklyn and their beautiful son. Will John succeed to escape from his prison so he can be with his family once more?

Brooklyn held John when he died in her arms. She has been broken ever since. The day she found out that she was pregnant was a day full of emotion, because she believed John would never meet their son. John's brother Jake isn't leaving Brooklyn's side and he's taking care of her and her son. Brooklyn left the big city and is now living in Maui. Jake has a house nearby. In a drawer lies a long forgotten burner phone. The moment Jake switches on this phone his heart skips a beat, since it shows a message which might be from John. Jake and Brooklyn will leave nothing to chance and will not stop searching for John if there's even the slightest possibility that he's still alive. Can they outrun the danger that is coming for them?

John used to be a skilled hitman. He killed so many people, but his life changed the moment he met Brooklyn. She's the one who got through to him and I loved to read about how love changes him for the better. Even though John is a killer, he also has a soft side. These contrasts in his character made me love him instantly. Brooklyn is a smart and beautiful woman. She's the President's daughter so she knows what it's like to watch her step. She's funny, determined and fierce. I always love stories with a strong female main character. When John and Brooklyn are together you feel the chemistry fly off the pages. I was rooting for them to succeed in taking out the man who's after them and for John to build a relationship with his son.

When I read Taking Down Brooklyn I was instantly hooked. I devoured that story and was in tears when I read the ending. I was so excited when I found out that K.B. Andrews and Kelly Moore teamed up again to write a killer sequel. Taking Back Brooklyn is a fast-paced story filled with action and suspense. K.B. Andrews and Kelly Moore have found a writing style that works for both of them and that makes their story easy to follow. I've read several books written by K.B. Andrews and every book written by Kelly Moore and their stories are getting better and better. The way they manage to grab me from the very first page and pull me into the story almost feels effortless. I'm a big fan of both of them and will read every single book they will write in the future.

Advice

If you're looking for a gripping and moving thriller I highly recommend Taking Back Brooklyn. To fully understand the story I'd advise you to read Taking Down Brooklyn, which is part one in this series, first.
