Book Review: Pretty New Dolls - Ker Dukey and K Webster
Benny, broken, hurting, and alone
Lost his dolly, his love, his home.
Injured and searching, reborn anew,
He finds himself befriended by one who’s true.
Learning about the world, urges, and lust.
Finding a new future, a new dolly, is a must.
Then out of old pain, fresh prospects come to life,
Benny’s sick mind summons him, so his hand takes the knife.
Have you ever been so lost that you became a shadow? Lurking but not living. Existing in the background where no one notices you.
My doll betrayed me, killed me in more ways than she realized.
I’m watching, waiting, wanting.
One day soon she’ll give me back what she took away…
it’s funny how life works that way.

K Webster is slowly growing into me and becoming one of my favorite author. And teaming up with Ker Dukey, you have got to expect something that will mess withyou in the head. With that in mind, I don’t know why expected to be able to read it in one sitting. I loved the first two books and how everything played out. but if their adding more to the story, who am I to complain.
I liked how the story unfolds and how everything was interconnected with the first two parts. It opened a new issue that played out pretty well. I was kind of anxious that it will still dwell on what was previously written. It also introduced a few more characters that you either get to love or hate, depending on your point of view. It also is nice that the center of the spotlight is Benny, yet we still get a glimpse of Dillon.
It’s nice every now and again to encounter a hero that is actually his own villain; someone with flaws and scars that society find hard to accept. You tend to learn how they tick and what makes them who they are. Sometimes you just wanted a change of scenery from all those prince charming stuff. For some weird reason, most of us are attracted to bad boys, either hoping that we will be the one that could actually change them or just for the fact that we really do love them, quirks and all.
The story is actually dark and disturbing. So if you’re someone with a weak heart or stomach, this isn’t for you. I do enjoy thrillers and dark romances but I actually had to stop and put the book down because it was creeping into me. And just when you thought you had everything figured out, they will up and change everything you actually believed in.
Overall, I’d give this a 4 out of five stars. I was about to give it a three, but the ending saved the day.
