Book Review: Six - (Book 2) Men By Numbers by Ker Dukey


Title: Six

Series: (Book 2) Men By Numbers

Author: Ker Dukey

Release Date: August 6, 2016



I grew up in the foster system and bounced around from place to place. I know what you’re thinking. Bad things happened to me and fucked me up? Don’t feel bad for me. I didn’t know a privileged life, therefore I didn’t miss one. I was what I was and I made it work. I actually had a few good homes in my lifetime, met some good people, but that’s not what my story’s about. It’s not a Romeo and Juliet saga either, even if our stories do revolve around a similar basis. I knew a real love, a rare love, a love between two people that were never supposed to fall in love. Rival gang members are never allowed to fall in love and it cost us everything. The things I learned growing up the way I did is this: Love is deadly and often not real. People come and go and only the rare few stick around when shit gets tough. I learned the hard way what lurks behind false smiles, and that deceitful truths get whispered in sexual moans. I was taught that dark souls are not born but created, and you can avoid them, hide from them or learn and become them. 

Revenge sculpted and molded me into the darkest of souls, and with my wrath comes agony and torment more severe than hell itself. I took out six of the men who hurt my woman and I will be coming for the rest. Get in my way and I’ll come for you too.


My Rating:

Favorite Quotes:

Jordon hit me like a livewire dipped in water - it was fast, shocking me through to my marrow. 

I woke up once with a girl who looked like someone completely different from the one I went to bed with.  Her eyelashes were stuck all over our bodies, like we'd rolled around on a bed of spiders and ended up covered in their legs.  Her tanned skin from the night before looked like she was a melting orange wax model.  My sheets resembled an Oompa Loompa massacre.

Sex is just math.  You add the bed, subtract the clothes, divide the legs, and pray you don't multiply.

Jude, get that loud mouthed cow out of here before she becomes accident prone and a statistic. 

I didn't plan or expect her, but Misty was like a tornado in the dead of night.  I didn't see her coming until it was too late and she swept me up and let me see inside her, inside the eye of the storm - peaceful and stunning with all the chaos unable to touch her.

Before him, I was just waiting for my instincts to become sharper to help me seek out the magic this world has to offer, but he was the magic.

My Review:

Six was a dark, gritty, and disquieting read.  There were scenes that had me cringing, and others that greatly distressed and disturbed me due to the cruelty of the violence and brutality.  The storyline was angsty and heartbreaking, although there were also refreshing instances of clever humor, banter, and wit.  Ker Dukey is not for the faint of heart, yet she has a uniquely compelling style that kept me reading - even when I wanted to throw my kindle across the room to get the horrifying words I'd just read far away from me.   I also found her descriptions of the various characters to be most entertaining.

Pretty Stolen Dolls.

Benny loves his pretty little dolls. As long as they do exactly as they're told. He keeps them perfect by brushing their hair and gives them pretty dresses to wear. He likes to toy with them late at night. One so timid but the other likes to fight. When his favorite doll runs away... despite the other doll promising to stay, his heart becomes broken and he can't help but cry. He wants her back home or his pretty little doll must die.
Have you ever had to make a decision that haunts you every single day for the rest of your life…the life you stole back? I have. I ran for my survival, rocks and twigs cutting into the soles of my feet, my lungs burning and screaming for rest, every muscle tensed and fighting along with me for existence. I left her. I ran, ran, ran—from Benny and his lone, pretty little doll—until I couldn’t remember where to find them again. I’m sorry.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters. I wanted to be an actress growing up so I could live many roles but I learned early on that my mind was too active… I would want to change the script.I would watch films and think of ways they could have improved the story if they took another direction so i thought it best that i tell my own.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light, some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
You can find me on Facebook where I love interacting with my readers.
