A ⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️ Review of Asylum Harbor by Isla Grey
Moving to a remote town and starting over again was Devon’s plan. But running from one small town to another didn’t seem to slow down the drama in her life. Devon is a strong woman and full of spirit. She’s not afraid to get in and get dirty. She does what she has to do to survive and doesn’t complain about her surroundings. Devon was running from her life, and she landed in the strong arms of the man everyone warned her about.
The author did a fantastic job painting the scenes for the reader. It was easy to lose yourself in the story. She didn’t bog you down with too much detailing, but gave you enough to feel as if you were experiencing the events with the characters. She gave the readers a little bit of everything: drama, action/fight scenes, love story, criminal elements, and definitely suspense. A few times I felt like I was watching a movie trying to dialogue with the characters, “No!! Don’t go in there!!!” She has so many great story lines she introduced in this first book; I can wait to see where we go. Will it be more of Devon’s story and what she’s running from, or will it be Kerr’s story? How about Diane or Danny?? Whichever way she goes, I am so in for the next one.
“You already got dibs on this one Kerr?”Porter shot an evil glare at the opposite end of the bar and looked back toward her. “I’ll see you tonight.” He flicked his tongue. “After work.” He raised his glass in a mock toast and chugged it in one gulp.The lights dimmed for Victoria’s dance of the night. Devon watched Kerr, who was usually headed for the exit by now, and breathed a sigh of relief when he remained glued to his seat with his back to the stage. He wasn’t staying for Victoria’s peep show. There must have been something about this Porter character that got under his skin in a bad way.Devon was eager for the quick break. She hustled to the back as the chords to “Simply Irresistible” began to pelt over the speakers and ran some cold water over her forearm. A red welt was beginning to show where Porter had held onto it. She hoped he would be gone by the time she got back.Making it out before mid-song, Devon rounded the bar when someone snagged her wrist and thrust her hard against the bar, knocking the wind out of her. She could smell Porter’s alcohol-laced breath as his weight pinned her under him. One of his grubby hands shot under her shirt while the other wrestled with the button on her pants. “Let’s give them a real show.”She struggled to reach the Equalizer, but it remained hidden, out of her grasp. Devon hoisted her knee toward his crotch, but Porter lost his balance and fell backward before she could make contact.Kerr towered over him. “Get your hands off her.”
