Layne Fargo recommends
Hurt for Me (2024)
Heather Levy
"A sweat-inducing dark romance wrapped in a thriller plot tight as bondage restraints, Hurt for Me will leave you hot for power couple Rae and Dayton, bothered by the infuriatingly realistic injustices they battle together, and begging for more from Heather Levy's brilliant mind."
Close Enough to Hurt (2023)
Katherine A Olson
"What's better than revenge? This sensational, sexy debut thriller, featuring a heroine with a voice as sharp as her knife collection and an exciting, empowering story that'll have you shouting good for her all the way to the deeply satisfying end."
The Stranger Upstairs (2023)
Lisa M Matlin
"The ultimate spooky-season read! Lisa M. Matlin skillfully infuses every page of The Stranger Upstairs with eerie, evocative imagery, and her (anti)heroine, Sarah Slade, is just as disturbing and compelling as the murder-house setting."
