Thank you to K. Webster and the Dangerous Press team for the advance reader copy of Triple Threat, releasing on January 11th!
The first Dangerous Press release of 2022! Only K. Webster would take her villainous terror triplets from the Cinderella series and turn them into the heroes of the story.
I am a member of the Dangerous Press review team, but I stand by my reviews remaining honest and true.
“I’m a prisoner in a prestigious world.
A perfect princess locked in a tower.
My father will never let me go.
Not that I could leave. I would never abandon my little sister. Hope comes in the form of a devilishly handsome man with dark eyes and darker secrets.
With each encounter, I’m lured deeper into the labyrinth. The danger lurking beneath his surface calls to me, even as it warns me away.
Except there’s a new side of him every time we meet. A different danger each time we touch. It’s as if three different men want to devour me.
He’s not just one villain. He’s three.”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: Landry is our heroine. Within pages K. Webster had me hooked to Landry’s story. She is a fighter in, to say the least, a tough predicament. With an abusive father and a younger helpless sister, Landry has to straddle keeping him at ease and planning an escape for her and her sister. Despite living quite a sheltered life, Landry is bold and feisty, she kept all three boys on their toes throughout the story. The triplets are Sully, Sparrow, and Scout. These nephews of Bryant Morrelli whom you will remember as the villains in Stroke of Midnight. Now they are beaten down and down on their luck. They are Morelli puppets who have been assigned to follow Landry. If you were worried that the triplets would be carbon copies of each other, don’t be. Scout is the most psychotic, Sparrow has a huge ego and Sully is the kindest.
- Setting: The story is set around New York City. Some time is spent at NYU as Landry is a new student and Sparrow infiltrates her classes. Not much actual learning is going on though, instead, these scenes make Landry grow closer to Sparrow. Sully spends his time with Landry at her family penthouse. He infiltrates himself as her sister, Della’s tutor. As he helps Della, he is able to cozy up to Landry and figure out what is going on in the home.
- Pacing: This is the first book in a duology and I really like what K. Webster did here in terms of laying the groundwork. Not only the groundwork for who these characters are but starting the romantic entanglement off perfectly. This story ends in a perfect place and I could not be more excited to jump into the final instalment in March.
- Romance: This is an unconventional romance, to say the least. Landry is developing separate romantic relationships without her even realizing it. The boys have different pet names and ways of showing affection. I did enjoy that because they were brothers they would get competitive about Landry, they all wanted to be the first to kiss her or to sleep with her. Now all I can think about is will the next make her choose one or will she find a way to keep all three? What keeps this book away from being a five star read is the romance did make me slighlty uncomfy in parts. So much was going on without Landry being in the know and I know that was the taboo element of this. But sometimes this was even a tad too taboo for me.
Triple Threat receives four out of five stars.
