A twisted life, a song that haunts her and a past that slowly starts coming back to her. This book is everything you want in a deep and thought provoking read. It will leave you hanging on until the very end. Just when you thought you had the plot figured out, think again this book will keep you on your toes!
Kristy Wilde is quiet and smart. Studying was her thing, she didn't want, or have time for anything else. Keeping to herself was easy, or so she thought. After a very persuasive conversation with a detective who is helping out in one of her classes; she reluctantly agrees to go for coffee. Detective Black is a jerk, he’s cocky, he’s arrogant and so self assured. She’s not impressed, who is this guy that has no filter?
"Yep whoever said life was like a box of chocolates needs those chocolates stuffed up their ass".
Kayla is dangerous, seeking revenge on those who get away with heinous crimes, she craves blood, the colour, the noise it makes when it's dripping onto the ground. She loves her job, she was the avenger for all that had suffered. The thrill of killing is all she lives for. She is promiscuous to say the least, she likes to have control over every aspect of her life, including sex. Her boss Tyke is her only dampener, she wants him, but he’s not interested.
We had a ridiculously hard time writing this review! It’s one of those books where even mentioning a slight section of the book would give something away. It was so twisted and so brilliant we cannot speak highly enough of it. If this is what T.L. has been up to we cannot wait to see what she has next.Read more ›
This is a story of two girls with a shared past and one which bonds them together in the future. Through right and wrong, they live side by side but without ever setting eyes on each other. Let me introduce you to Kayla and Kristy.
Kayla is a cold blooded killer, she kills to exact revenge for the pain experienced at the hands of others, bad men who take pleasure in hurting and abusing the innocent. Kayla thrives on a diet of sex and violence, she won't let anyone hurt her or Kristy.
Kristy is a quiet, unassuming college student who, unbeknownst to her, has Kayla looking out for her as she tries to protect her from her past.
Both girls have been targeted by one man, Detective Kai Dean, who has fallen in love with Kristy but in doing so has attracted the attention of Kayla.
There is another mysterious man who is also looking out for both girls, Tyke Black, also a detective but Kayla's employer and Kristy's teacher. Will it be Tyke or Kai who will save Kristy though and will the mysterious Tyke ever reveal himself to Kai?
This books is fast paced and full of twists and turns. It is completely unexpected and unprecedented and a story which will remain with me for a very long time. I hoped for a HEA and I got one but the way Kristy repeatedly rejected Kai didn't flow for me and I found it a little unnecessary, especially when she pushed him away after reconnecting with him, but I get where the author was heading and trying to draw out their HEA. It was a shame for the story to end at 88% though, I so love a story to reach the very end of the book!
All in all though a very enjoyable, dark read and one which is full of suspense and intrigue.

One of the things you learn about this book quickly is that there is a lot more to it than first meets the eye. It focusses on two women Kayla and Kristy, polar opposites of each other. Kayla is one messed up individual and she’s definitely not a woman to cross. Kristy, on the other hand is gentle, kind and comes across as innocent, she just wants to get her studies finished with no real possibilities of anything else for her.
Kristy works for Tyke, a man who only wants a strict working relationship, but Kristy wants more, much more. Kai (a police detective) has a firm interest in Kayla and most definitely cannot stay away from her. He wants her and helps to protect her.
Unfortunately, due to the plotline I cannot go into too much detail without destroying the book for you all, but let me tell you, it’s a must read. I loved this book TL Smith and I will be lining up for more from you in the future. Five star read for me.
A MUST READ!!!!!!!
Meet Kristy. Twenty. Studying at college.
Doesn’t have friends.
Keeps to herself.
Her secrets are her own.
Your worst nightmare.
She’s confident, independent, strong.
She always gets what she wants.
She always wins.
To punish. To hurt. To deliver pain.
She craves it.
She needs it.
Her ultimate goal?
Two very different woman.
But they have something very much in common.
Kai. Sexy as hell. Independent and strong.
Sorry guys, but we aren’t going to tell.
Your just going to have to read it to find out.
Pure Punishment is a brilliant read.
We soaked up every word on every page.
We couldn’t put it down.
It’s dark, heart warming, sad and evil.
It’s full of so many twists and turns, you will be left sitting on the edge of your seat until the very end.
Who to kill?
You better open your door.
Cut or nick?
Don’t party too late.
Watch your gate.
We thank TL Smith for giving us the opportunity to read Pure Punishment.
A definite 5 star read and should be on everyone’s TBR list.
