Betrayal by Martina Cole

I remember the very first Martina Cole book I read almost 12 years go. It was the thrilling, dramatic ‘Lady Killer’. After a few pages I was hooked and I read the entire book in one day. From that moment on I became a big fan of Cole’s work. I loved the diverse characters and dark themes in each and every one of her books. Not only is Martina good at creating dramatic reads; she also has a great writing style which makes reading her work effortless.

Betrayal is no different to her other books in that it is written fantastically.

The story revolves around Reeva O Hara and her colourful, charismatic family. She herself is feisty and wild, but her entire world revolves around her family; that is until she’s on one of her famous ‘benders’.

We are introduced to her children, each born to a different father but each being of a strong character. They fight one another but fight FOR one another above all else. As with most of Cole’s books we delve deep into the criminal underworld and read with wide eyed at the sinister parts and shocking descriptions. We are introduced to many great characters.

I love Reeva! She is a bit of rogue at times but she is an amazing example of a powerful woman. She would do anything for her kids.

I disliked Aiden, but I think most people would. That just shows how well a book is written when you can identify which character ‘gets your back up’. At times I wanted to hug him; other’s I wanted someone to punch him hard.

I want to write about everything that happened but I don’t want to spoil it for you guys.

All I will say is that this is a fantastic read; it is edgy, gripping and exciting. If you haven’t read Martina Cole’s stories before then look her up and give this book a go; you won’t be disappointed 🙂

I give this 5/5 🌟

Author:

I am a 36 year old female from the UK. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two beautiful boys, Ethan (6) and Oliver (3). We also have a gorgeous Pug called Harry, he is 11 weeks old and full of life. I currently work part time for the local authority but have run a small photography business for the past 10 years, where I provided a photography service for weddings, events and I also provided photoshoots for babies and small children. The business ran quite well and got great feedback from all of my clients who regularly referred me onto their friends and family. For as far back as I can remember there were two things I wanted to do in my life. 1 - Become a writer, whether it be write a fiction novel or writing content for newspapers/magazines, etc - It is always something that I have enjoyed doing. 2 - Become a photographer and run my own business. I conquered number 2. I ran my own business and tried consumer photography jobs. It was fun while it lasted but I felt that I wasn't using my camera the way I wanted to. Towards the end, I stopped enjoying it so much. I still take on the odd job, but I am now keen to try and conquer the other passion of mine. I am not saying that photography will be done with forever. I love taking artistic photographs and I am hoping to showcase some of that work on here, pieces that are just for me...and only me. But what I want to do more than anything is produce a piece of writing that is published. Whether it be short stories, a novel, content for newspapers, etc. So I figured I would produce a blog to showcase some of my work - review some books/movies and just get used to writing again and putting my own content out there. So this is me. The Mother, the wife, the Pug Mom, The photographer, The Writer
