Plenty by Kelly K. Lavender

plentyCan a gritty, dark, intense Horror Thriller be both suspenseful and meaningful? Yes, Plenty proves the point.

When Camille volunteers for the youth outreach program in the small town of Prosperity little does she know that she has put herself in harm’s way. Sheriff Griffin, the program leader, and his son, Grant, lord over an empire of criminal activities ranging from – illegal drugs, robbery, murder, political corruption and pornography. In short order, Grant becomes Camille’s lover and introduces her to life as a recreational drug user. After Camille weathers a brutal beating by Grant’s disapproving Dad, she turns to her newly-widowed, fiery friend Jennifer for help. What can two downtrodden women do to rid a tortured town of its misogynistic Machiavellian sheriff and malevolent mayor? Plenty.

Plenty, the powerful flip side of Fifty Shades of Grey, captivates as a spine-tingling suspense novel about the risky yet all-important road to self-actualization and happiness. For readers who abhor the objectification of women and sex kitten or sex kitten-for-a-sadist dynamic, Plenty offers a plethora of promise. Plenty holds special appeal for resilient, smart, resourceful women who rescue themselves and the men who love them. Plentyinfused with spice, a lot of naughty-never nice. Not for the faint of heart or for those seeking a slow, tame sleepy time story. Action-packed Plenty jets along at a jolting James Bond pace.

It was the coloring of the cover that first grabbed me on this book, but I’m so glad to have picked it up. Plenty was a fantastic mix of mystery and modern day heroes. There is a lot of darkness here, especially within the characters. Camille has endured some dark times, but is hell bent determined for that not to get her down.

I really enjoyed the time jumps within the story and thought that added a lot of dimension to the narrative. Everything came together really nicely, even by the midpoint of the book and continued to build from there. The pacing of Camille’s story is a big part of what had me frantically turning pages to find out what happens next.

This story is not shy when it comes to grittier moments, sex, violence and any number of elements that would not be suitable for younger readers.
