Review: Ten (My Brothers Best Friend) by Ker Dukey

Publication Date: December 17, 2015

Series: The Men By Numbers Series book 1

Rating: 4 stars 

Official Blurb: Ten years old I fell in love
Ten years was the price of that love
Ten years later our world’s re-collide

Alexandria (alex)

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.

Review: This was my first book by Ker Dukey and I was hooked from the beginning. Alex and Dalton were soul mates since they first laid eyes on each other. Alex was a few years younger than her brother Jonah and Dalton but she always wanted to be with them. Alex knew she was to young for Dalton but they both promised each other they would be together. When the time came for these two to be together, every thing fell apart and the lies, secrets, and deceits began.

Now ten years later, Alex has to go back to the town were her whole world fell apart. When she sees Dalton, it is most definitely not the warm welcome she wanted. This book is told through both characters POVs. After ten years, the attraction is still there but both are hurt for different reasons. Things are not always what they appear and both Alex and Dalton both have to overcome many things. This book is full of twists and turns and several things I didn’t see coming. I love how connection between Alex and Dalton was still as strong as ever, even though they had to go through hell and back. I loved Alex. She was a wonderful heroin now it took me a bit to warm up to Dalton because he is stubborn but as the book went he also stole my heart. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more books by this author.
