Editorial Reviews


I was awestruck by the suspense. I LOVE romantic suspense novels, and not once did I have an inkling as to what would happen next. Cassia keeps you truly blinded by the truth right up til the very end, where you're mouth will drop, your eye will bulge and several obscenities will slide from your tongue. Cassia, you perfected your debut novel! I simply cannot wait for more! - Author Silla Webb
The plot is so intricately woven and so well executed I couldn't put it down. When I wasn't reading Malevolent I was thinking about it trying to use my skills of deduction to see if I could figure it out. Malevolent was a stellar debut novel from Cassia Brightmore I was hooked from the start and I've been thinking about it even now that it's done. - Author Gillian Jones

--- SPOILER ALERT!!! ---

Oh boy. Once again I’m in the minority here rating this novel a low score.

After reading the first couple of chapters and enjoying it, I thought I had picked a winner as it started off so great. I was already thinking four stars in my head. However, as I read on that quickly changed to three stars, then two, and then finally one. Thanks to a city blackout that occurred last evening that lasted several hours after I turned in for the night, I thought more about my review only to realize it was incomplete. I won't lie, there were several eye rolls and WTF?! moments that could not be helped. Now if you’re planning to read this novel, please DO NOT read on as I am going to spill the beans on a few things; meaning SPOILER ALERT.

Let me just start with what I liked about the novel.

- It started off with a bang. You couldn’t help but get sucked in as the author weaved a terrific tale about a serial killer.

- The story is told from several POV's; Gwyn, Brady, and the killer, just to name a few. The chapters that were of the killer's and victims' POV were the best ones in my opinion. The author does a great job keeping the reader in suspense as to who the killer actually is. With a few twists and turns thrown in, it was quite a surprise when I reached the end.

- I actually liked all the supporting characters, including Brady's ex Mila, a total bitch.

Now for all the WTF?! moments.

--- SPOILER ALERT!!! ---

After being on road for a few months, Gwyn (heroine) ends up in, Durham Heights, a small town in Louisiana. She left Chicago after being in an abusive (emotional and physical) relationship for three years to start a new life.

Do you like books that mess with your mind? Do you like the dark and depraved? Do you like hot sex? Then this book is for you. Cassia Brightmore gets you hooked right from the beginning. The prologue will get your adrenline pumping and have you craving more. This book has so many twists and turns that keep the reader on the edge of thier seat. Expect the unexpected. What a great attention grabbing mind turmoil debut book. I still can't believe that this is Cassia Brightmore's debut book. My mind is still reeling and probably will for a long time. So many surprises and just as you think you might have it figured out bam plot twist. I'm not saying any more because spoliers will come into play. Just be prepared for hot sex, creepiness, plot twists, and your mind to be blown away. #WhoIsMalevolent

I received this book for an honest review.

I wish I could give this book more than five stars.
It blows my mind to know that this is the debut book for this author.
The way the story was told, and the characters brought to life.

This book captivated me from the first sentence.
There were a lot of WTF moments and the tears that came with it.

We have Gwyn who is running from her past and needing a safe place away from her abusive ex and then we have sexy, hunky, Sheriff Brady who is also running from his past as he tries to hide from the sadness of it.

Brady must have Gwyn and she is scared of all men but she senses something different about him.
As their love grows, terror and fear is all around them.
There is a murderer on the loose and no one in the police department can figure out who is doing it.
This murderer has killed two women and a police officer before Hailey who is married to an officer and loved in the town is taken.
They have exhausted every lead in hopes of finding her alive.
The FBI has stepped up in their attempts to help in finding her.

Will they find her in time?
Will they be shocked to find out who is behind the murders>
Will Gwyn be safe or is she a target?

This book has it all, love, hot sex, and suspense.
This book will keep you on your toes.

You must read this book!

My mind is officially BLOWN AWAY by this book and I’ll be reading EVERY SINGLE THING that Cassia Brightmore writes! I am so impressed with this book for a debut author. The depth of emotion, the power of the words, and the unbelievable plot line…it’s just ridiculous! This for me was a physiological thriller with romance and definite chemistry between the two main characters from their very first meeting. I felt like I was literally holding on to the edge of my seat the whole way through, there was absolutely no pulling me away from this read whatsoever. Sheriff Brady left the big city and settled into small town living after a devastating loss and Gwyn was running and trying to pick up the pieces from a volatile ex. Neither expected to find love, that was so instantaneous and undeniable. Unfortunately the sheriff has a murder that needs solving before things escalate any further. Some scenes will be hard to read. You might even have to set the book down for a little bit to let it all sink in, and let all the various emotions flow through you. It played out like a movie in my mind, and I was right there, gasping for breath, mind running wild, anxiety turned up to the nth degree. There were so many twist and turns in this book that even after it ends you're going to want to read it again just to make sure you didn't miss anything. In this type of dark romance, you think you know what will happen next, but I can guarantee you that your theories don't stand a chance. Because Cassia will flip it, she will throw us off kilter on multiple occasions, and she will make us think twice about what we think of a certain character. I embrace that, I crave it, and I can't wait to see what she brings us next.
