***This books takes place ten years after a school shooting. Some material may be disturbing***

“The fact I feel anything should let me know I’m headed in the wrong direction, headed down a path of darkness, destruction, and failure. A path that will dig out memories so painful I’ve created an entire persona to avoid dealing with them. Yet I know—I’m going down that path headfirst no questions asked, no matter the outcome.
I might be a monster, but I’m a selfish one.”—Keller Keating

“When his strength envelops me, every wrong becomes right, every anxiety melts away, every doubt disappears. I feel calm, safe, whole. The spark of life that’s been missing inside burns bright, lighting me up like a solar flare, sizzling white-hot through my veins. Keller brings me out of the darkness and into the light.”—Britton Reeves




This is Tonya’s personal review of
5 Stars
Killer” a stand-alone by author Heather C. Leigh

Above says everything that needs to be said about what this book is about. I first saw this book at the recent Authors in the City 2016 signing. It was my first time meeting author Heather C. Leigh and she has this book on her table display and the cover grabbed my attention. I picked up the book, read the synopsis and said I will be downloading this book and reading it and when I got home I did exactly that. I had to finish the book I was reading so I could hurry and get to this one. Let me say buying this book was well worth every penny spent. This book is so good I spent 2 nights up until 2:30 in the morning reading it. Yeah I was a zombie at work but it was well worth it.

Britton and Keller go to the same high school. She knows who he is, he doesn’t know who she is. Keller is the guy all guys envy, the party boy jock who gets all the girls. Britton is the girl who wants to be one of those girls, he has no clue, and she just wishes.

Then the fateful day and both of their lives are completely turned upside down and inside out. Nothing is ever the same for either one of them after that day. Keller heads down a path of destruction and becomes what he thinks he is, he builds up this impenetrable wall, doesn’t let anyone near or in, hates himself and everyone around him, it’s easier that way.

Britt, fights every day to move on, to survive, to not live in the past, not be a victim. She has suffered a lot from that fateful day so many years ago but she has overcome a lot and has moved on, has a great life working at an MMA gym, all the guys there respect her, and they make her feel “somewhat safe” in her tormented life. Then in walks “Killer” and right away she knows there is something about him.

The two of them together are like fireworks, his magnetic silver eyes, his strength, the smile he has only let her see, for the first time in 10 years she feels something she has never felt “SAFE”. For the first time in 10 years he feels something he has never felt “ALIVE”.

This may be a happily ever after book, but let me tell you, what Britt and Killer (aka Keller) go through to get there its almost like going through hell and back. The secrets each one is holding onto, the desire each one has, the destruction both can bring, the fight to get there. Makes this book absolutely amazing. They may have a past brought on by a horrible tragedy, but what comes of it, a blessing. Truly the best book I have read so far this year.
