Killer Love by Ruthnye Jean-Philippe

When sports reporter Meya Taylor moved to Paris to investigate the death of soccer legend Robert Raymond's wife, the last thing she planned was to fall in love. After a whirl wind romance however, all of that changes when Benny Roman, the son of Paris's notorious loan shark proposes to her. They seem to be in bliss until Benny's business rival Michel Grey steps into the picture.

Focused on solving the mystery behind the death of Roberts's wife and marrying her soulmate, Meya must balance the two very carefully.

Killer Love is told from our three main characters Michel, Meya, and Benny's points of view. This romance thriller set in Paris, is filled with twists, turns, and a fatal love triangle.

"Love can drive a person to do the most imaginable things. Love has no boundary that it won't step over."

Killer Love was brilliant! Ruthnye Jean-Philippe's writing immediately pulls you into these characters' lives, and how they are all connected will leave readers completely intrigued. If you're looking for a sweet romance then this is not the book for you. How would I describe this book to you? I'd say this is about how far someone is willing to go to seek revenge.

The story is innocent in the beginning as we meet our three main characters. I enjoyed all of them and liked what they brought to the story. Meya is strong, independent, and not afraid to go after what she wants in life. Michel is more laid-back, charming who I immediately rooted for. Then there was Benny, who was a bit controlling at first but ended up being more than that. Their lives all connect in an interesting way.. I honestly can't reveal too much without spoilers so all I will say is that it's very interesting to read how their stories unfold!

There's always this sense of mystery behind their actions. Why are they doing these things? I enjoyed this. I think Ruthnye's writing is stunning and I can't wait to read more from her! Her descriptions and how well she developed her characters were brilliant. She revealed information of the characters' past without making it too info-dumpy, that's always a plus for me. She drops little twists here and there to keep readers guessing.. I could NOT predict that ending! What a twist, so brilliant and intriguing!

Like I said, I can't reveal too much of the plot without spoiling but I really did enjoy this book. This is a true story of revenge and how far someone would go to avenge someone they love. There was a time when this character brought to life an idea stemmed from their pain, but in the end, it became so much more than that. It's interesting to see how this person once wondered how someone could hurt innocent people when their obsession ends up turning the impossible possible.

I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys mysteries/thrillers!
