Series: (Book 2) Men By Numbers
Author: Ker Dukey
Release Date: August 6, 2016
I grew up in the foster system and bounced around from place to place. I know what you’re thinking. Bad things happened to me and fucked me up? Don’t feel bad for me. I didn’t know a privileged life, therefore I didn’t miss one. I was what I was and I made it work. I actually had a few good homes in my lifetime, met some good people, but that’s not what my story’s about. It’s not a Romeo and Juliet saga either, even if our stories do revolve around a similar basis. I knew a real love, a rare love, a love between two people that were never supposed to fall in love. Rival gang members are never allowed to fall in love and it cost us everything. The things I learned growing up the way I did is this: Love is deadly and often not real. People come and go and only the rare few stick around when shit gets tough. I learned the hard way what lurks behind false smiles, and that deceitful truths get whispered in sexual moans. I was taught that dark souls are not born but created, and you can avoid them, hide from them or learn and become them.
Revenge sculpted and molded me into the darkest of souls, and with my wrath comes agony and torment more severe than hell itself. I took out six of the men who hurt my woman and I will be coming for the rest. Get in my way and I’ll come for you too.
Let me start by saying, I love Ker’s work. She’s one of my favorite “dark” authors, and I’ve read everything she’s written.
This is hands down, my favorite book of hers. And Six, by far, is my favorite character.
I was excited for his book after the first Men by Numbers book, Ten. It’s there that we catch the first glimpse of him, and boy does that leave you wanting more. Thankfully Ker delivers!
Taylor Jake, aka Six has a brutal past, but he’s managed to put it behind him and become a successful bar and tattoo shop owner. He doesn’t believe he’s worthy of love after loving someone nearly cost her her life, and does everything he can to avoid it.
Misty is an employee, hired on the spot after seeking shelter in from the rain at the bar. She’s looking to pick up the shatter pieces left behind by the death of her father. She’s smart and articulate, until she’s around Six. The mutual attraction between them is strong, but she becomes tongue tied whenever she’s around him, and he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her. Until they both shove the crap aside and come together, and man it’s EXPLOSIVE!
And then, a blast from the past shows up in bar and all the uncertainties rear their ugly heads. This is where – as they say – stuff gets real.
There are so many things I love about this book. The dual POV, the anecdotes about the past events that are very strategically placed. Those really help you get a better understanding of what happened, and why Six is the way he is. I love the smoking hot sex, and watching the feelings of Six unfold chapter after chapter. And I love that we meet our next character. Can’t wait to see where she takes him!
There are some VERY dark scenes in this book, so if you have ANY trigger issues, proceed with extreme caution. This story is not for the faint of heart, but this book will stay with you long after you’ve finished it.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
