I was very blessed to receive a copy of C. Kevin Thompson’s new book Triple Time to review on my blog. I want to give a huge shoutout and a huge thank you to him. Triple Time is book 2 in a series called the Blake Meyer series. I have read series books before and I love them! So I’m excited to be able to write this review today on his book.
Prior to reading “Triple Time” I had read a huge book series by Ridley Pearson, I will not lie that it was Kingdom Keepers. So thankfully prior to reading the Blake Meyer series I knew what to expect in books that went along in a series. The first book in the series is 30 Days Hath Revenge and it’s a pretty intense book (I thought, at least compared to the Juvenile series of Kingdom Keepers).
“Triple Time” is a book that is full of intrigue, mystery, and once you think you figured out the mystery something is thrown in the mix! The chapters are perfectly laid out and I love the way C. Kevin Thompson wrote it. I love at the beginning of the chapter you know where you are in the book, no guessing in the middle of the chapter or rereading to figure out where your character is. I can’t stand when authors just leave you hanging trying to figure out where the characters are. If they are in Jacksonville, I want to know that prior.
The only downfall to this book is that it is so intriguing that you can’t put it down. I feel like I get to live my dream of being Belle from Beauty and the Beast who “couldn’t put the book down” while reading this book. Reading before bed was probably not the greatest idea but I have no other time to read during the day. I didn’t sleep much since I kept wanting to read more and more. I finally told myself, just to compromise and read 10 chapters. That went okay the first night, the second night I had limited time to read and so I only read about 7 but my goal was to put it down after 3-4, and the third night back to 10 chapters but ended up reading 15 chapters. This pattern continued but the book is so good you will not want to put it down.
The characters in the story are (most notably) Blake Meyer and his family. I don’t want to give too much away but when I was reading this story for some reason I was taken back to a friend’s daughter’s birthday party. Having close friends/family at the birthday party, luckily the unthinkable didn’t happen at the real party like it did in the book. (No spoilers here you are going to have to read it!) There are other characters in the book but I don’t want to give too much away in this thriller novel.
The book flows flawlessly from the beginning to end. After reading the book in it’s entirety I would still have the same conclusion. This book reminds me of the thriller books by Ridley Pearson (I’m a huge fan of his Kingdom Keeper books). So, the ending of this book leaves a cliff hanger and ready for the next book in the story.
If you are looking for a good book to read, I highly suggest this book! It’s a great thriller book that will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting to read it constantly. It isn’t boring and the storyline moves along and makes you want to read more of the story.
I do know how sensitive some subjects are to certain people. Not all people can handle books with sensitive subjects in them (i.e. rape, human trafficking, domestic violence, etc.) so I just wanted to put a trigger warning below. I enjoyed reading the book and there were some intensive moments. So to be polite to others who may potentially read the book, I wanted to just put out a trigger warning. The trigger warning is listed below.
I would like to disclaim that there is talk of human trafficking in the book, this is a real problem in our world today, so if this subject is sensitive to you I would read with caution. You could possibly skip over those parts and still understand the book, but just note that it is important to the plot. I had some issues reading about the human trafficking but I was able to not become emotionally involved, except for a few parts and I wanted to yell at the characters in the book.
Thank you for reading my review this book! Leave a comment below stating who your favorite character is from the book!
