Ten years old I fell in love
Ten years was the price of that love
Ten years later our world’s re-collide
My brother Jonah was possessive when it came to the things he owned; this unfortunately included the people in his life. The forbidden love between his best friend and me was just that… forbidden.
Our families were from different walks of life and as a sheriff’s daughter being with a Moore’s kid would never be tolerated. To my parents their son and Dalton Moore were on different paths and their friendship would end as soon as college began but it was my brother who had a craving for trouble. He was always looking for danger, committing petty crimes and getting away with it because Dalton would take the fall, blackening his already stained name. When Jonah found out we broke the rules by loving each other, his consequences impacted us all with immeasurable suffering.
Betrayal comes with a debt and it would be paid by all of us.
One with their heart,
one with their mind
and one would pay in blood.
Albeit a little lighter than her previous offerings, I still absorbed every word of this tale of lost love and betrayal. In the first instalment of the Men by Numbers Series, we follow Alex and Dalton who are blindly trying to fight against their connection as they struggle to comprehend what ripped them apart all those years ago. Ker keeps the reader captivated as she delves into the past to find the answers while teasing you with the present.
Dalton has held on to his anger for a long time which results in him being down right mean to her at times, Alex has no idea why he hates her so much but the attraction they have for each other is still very much alive and makes for some hot intense moments.
“I want to hate every inch of you using every inch of me”
“How much do you hate me, Alex? Enough to let me inside your body…”
“You’re soaking for me, Alex, and all your outburst is doing is turning us both on.”
As the story unfolds and the truth is revealed, we get a glimpse into the softer side of Ker Dukey.
“You were made to come find me and show me the beauty in the world because all I’d ever seen was ugly…I gave away my beauty, my chance, my soul mate…but I promise that every day I’ll show you how perfect you are to me.”
As always with her writing, I couldn’t put this book down and read into the early hours of the morning to find out what became of this pair. I can’t wait for the next instalment featuring the deep and troubled Six which promises to be deliciously dark and intense, just the way I like it!!

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
