Giveway & Review – Boy on the Beach by R D Maddux @ @iReadBookTours

 

Book Details:

Book Title: Boy on the Beach by R.D. Maddux
Category: Adult Fiction; 304 pages
Genre: Mystery / Thriller

MY REVIEW

I love the simple and intriguing cover and the title does its job of making me curious,. Why is he on the beach, what is he doing and who is he doing it with?

The mystery of what and why kept me reading. What is that black SUV doing? Is it his past come to claim vengeance? Is the child the target? What happened to the girl, Blaire? The one he crushed Amber for?

The story is so not what I was expecting and at first I was very disappointed. As I traveled from the past to the present and back again I was seeing his life unfold, how he came to be where he is now.

Donovan is hard to care about. It’s like he’s only getting what he gave. His ugliness overcomes anything good, if there is anything. His motives are selfish. You know, Karma can be a nasty one. Actions have consequences.

Boy on the Beach shows Donovan’s life, the good, the bad and the ugly. I love a flawed character. I want to know how he came to be the person he is and if it is possible for him to redeem himself. Sounds a bit like real life.

The mystery keeps me guessing, but I never felt a sense of darkness or urgency that I crave in my thrillers. If you are looking for a ‘Beach’ read, Boy on the Beach may be the ticket for its easy reading.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of Boy on the Beach by R D Maddux.
