Review Source: Ker Dukey, Author

Ever get that feeling you’re being watched?
You probably are.
Her sad eyes.
Her thick lips.
Her long dark hair.
Her quickening of breath.
Her hurried footsteps.
Her undiluted fear.
The anxiety a woman has when she knows she’s being followed does something to the sadistic animal inside me.
We all have issues, mine just run a little deeper than most.
My sister and I had a childhood tarnished by an abusive parent.
We grew up two very different breeds of our mothers’ creation.
Then I discover the beautiful, yet broken, Alice Young.
She’s seeking advice, a place to unburden her thoughts.
What she gets is a dangerous, callous predator who wants to quench his thirst with her tears.
My precious, Alice, feels so alone, but she’s not alone.
I’m watching her.
Erik Ross feeds on the fear of others.
Alice Young may prove to be too damaged, for even his appetite.

Let me preface this review with the fact that Ker Dukey is one of my favorite authors. I absolutely devour everything that she puts out. With that said, Stalk Her was a hard one for me. It didn’t pull me in, like her stories typically do. I felt that it was unrealistic and difficult to get into the mindset of the characters. Just certain situations were out there and hard for me to relate to, even knowing this is fiction.

 Was there drama, suspense, and unexpected (devious) situations? Absolutely. Erik is a demanding alpha male that takes what he wants. What he didn’t expect was for Alice to kick back as much as she did. That was in fact, a huge challenge for him. That is why I rated Stalk Her a four. The writing was still exceptional and well done. Ker can draw you into her sinister, sick and dark stories and leave you reeling for more. I am definitely looking forward to Annemarie’s story; hopefully coming soon!

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime 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 of 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.
