Review of Severed Ties by J.L.Beck

Five Stars

Severed Ties Cover


Author J.L. Beck gives you part two in the dangerously intoxicating Ties Series. 

Are you afraid of the dark, because you should be… 

“I wanted them to feel the darkness, and scars that they had caused upon my soul. I wanted all of them dead.” 

★ Should be read after book one Dangerous Ties ★ 


Her heartbeat was still. Her life nothing but a memory to me. 

I was far from the man that I once was… 

Cold. Heartless. Emotionless. 

Those were all words that would describe me. I had loved two women in my life and lost both of them. I would never open up my heart again. I would simply avenge their deaths. 

We had a bond. Ties to one another. 

Now I needed to do whatever I could to get back to Grayson, even if that meant coming face to face with my father and Drake. The ties that bind us needed to be severed if Grayson and I had a chance. 

I needed to save him, all while trying to face my own demons. 

18+ due to violence, and sexual themes.

I am officially naming J.L.Beck the queen of cliffhangers!

I simply LOVED this book! There’s love, hatred, suspense and such satisfying revenge!

Believing that Ellie is dead, Grayson goes into hiding to plot his revenge, though he can’t get Ellie out of his mind and all he is managing to do is wallow in his own pain and guilt. Throughout this I kept wondering if this was a mirror image to how he coped when his sister was killed and I couldn’t help but feel his pain.

Meanwhile Ellie is alive and wanting nothing more than to be in Grayson’s arms. But a deep secret comes to light that has the power to destroy him and it was with hideous anxiety that I waited for that secret to come to be revealed and by whom.

All Ellie and Grayson want is to be together, away from all the evil that has encompassed their lives. But they’re surrounded by people who crave their deaths. It was nerve wracking wondering if they would make it out alive or if one or both would lose their life. By the end I was shocked, I never saw the book ending the way it did.

Severed Ties is written brilliantly and seems to hold a strong hidden confidence that wasn’t so apparent in Dangerous Ties.

It was an absolutely satisfying read and I can’t wait to see more from J.L.Beck!

I received this book in exchange for an honest review
