Review: Tempest by Ketley Allison

I shouldn’t want her. I shouldn’t crave her.
She’s not safe — especially not from me.

I know the trouble that comes with people running from the shadows. I know the danger of getting involved with those who deal in secrets. I make those problems go away.

Hitman. Fixer. Whatever.

The biggest mistake I made was choosing to keep my little sister and her best friend, Ardyn Kaine, safe after their friend was murdered.

Ardyn is quiet, soft, and fragile. She spends her evenings studying in her dorm’s common room at the historic Titan Falls University — near where they once burned witches. They say the walls of TFU can talk, but I don’t believe in things I can’t see.

All the blood is on my hands, but Ardyn is the only thing that keeps me up at night.
She might hate me.
But I hate her more for the lies I have to tell.

One thing I know for certain — Ardyn isn’t safe from me.

I’m her nightmare.


This one is dark and a little bit twisted but I loved it. Ardyn has lived a tragic life and things are never easy for her. Tempest has a black soul and he’s dangerous in ways she can’t imagine. I love a good enemies-to-lovers and this one delivers, although it’s certainly different from most others. Ardyn was easy to like and while I wasn’t crazy about Tempest at first, I warmed up to him as the story went on. They’re great together in a love-to-hate-you way. I couldn’t put this one down. I received an ARC from Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.
