REVIEW: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS-- With a storyline that kept me hooked, Monsters by Melissa Jane was a great story packed with heart-pounding suspense. Gemma, Lucas, and Mason's story was one of secrets, violence, an unbreakable bond, and a dangerous obsession.
I am a fan of this author's cartel series, and this story is completely different yet equally intriguing. Jane is a great storyteller, and I like the way she alternated between the past and the present seamlessly. The characters of the story were well developed. I appreciated how the "villain" of the story wasn't a one-dimensional caricature, but rather, a complex individual who was shaped by his life's experiences. Lucas and Mason each played a huge role in Gemma's life in different ways, and the author did a great job conveying the emotional turmoil that she experienced both as a teenager and later as an adult. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of danger that surrounded Gemma throughout the entire story. Jane is really skilled at creating that feeling of uncertainty with the events of story, because I really did not know what was coming at any given time.
Monsters had a great mix of romance and suspense and the flow of the storyline was flawless. The way the story was laid out and the way the events unfolded made it hard for me to put the book down. I loved the way things wrapped up for the characters in the end. This was a really enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.
