A tale of manipulation, seduction, and the dark villains that walk among us.
I’m being watched and lied to by those around me.
I’m a ghost writer, scarred from my past, trying to move forward.
I was on the path to success with my author career, until a negative spotlight was cast my way, and the best part of me vanished in one afternoon.
I gave myself a fresh start and moved back home. Soon I found comfort shadowing the new detective for research on my next series. The perks of having family in law enforcement.
I had no clue I’d let my guard down just enough to let him in.
As we grew closer, so did the murder case we were chasing. Clues were stacking up, and all evidence pointed toward me as the next victim.
Can we spot the true villain in time? Or will the mastermind behind the truth of my past continue to walk free among us?

This book starts off with a bang. A gunshot that is! Many gunshots to be exact. Ms. Drake brings us to a beautiful cabin in the woods, and then bam, she wrecks havoc on our hearts! This is where the story begins...
As you read, you will think you have it all figured out...you don't, trust me you don't. Spencer is recovering from a break up and has decided to go live in her parents cabin in the woods. So many memories both good and bad but she needs to get away and the cabin is the best place for her to find herself again.
At one point, Spencer was on top of the world, she had a great family, was a best selling writer and was going places! That is until her brother started causing issues and her family was violently murdered. Now she shy's away from the public eye and ghost writes. She still gets to fulfill her love of writing without the issues that goes with it. Imagine her excitement when she gets a job ghostwriting for an anonymous author who wants a romantic suspense/murder mystery book written! That's right up her alley!
In order to get some background on law enforcement procedures, she teams up with Blake to learn how police investigate. Blake is a hot, single cop that has recently relocated to get away and find himself. Imagine his surprise when his first case turns out to be a serial killer. Now, Blake and Spencer are chasing down a serial killer and things are also heating up between them.
This story has twists, turns, surprises and oh crap moments. I think Ms. Drake took me down a rabbit hole more times than I can count and every time I thought I had it all figured out....Ms. Drake threw me for another loop. Rabbit holes and loops...
For those of you that know me. Ms. Drake is one of my five unicorn author's. She truly can't write a bad book and everything she writes is magical! This book was no different. This was original, fast paced, edge of your seat goodness that will keep you reading until you get to the end. And don't even get me started on that ending....
So once again, Ms. Drake get's all my recommendations and I can't wait for her next book! Don't delay and start reading this today!!!
Where does one even begin with this book. J.L. Drake killed it again and brought another one of her amazing dark worlds to life. Once you start Behind My Words you won’t be able to put it down so be prepared for the long haul and be prepared to be kept on your toes and enjoy. This book is incredible and I hope when you read it you fall in love with it as much as I did.
WOAH WHAT DID I JUST READ!?!? I’m truly mind-blown by this story!
WOAH WHAT DID I JUST READ!?!? I’m truly mind-blown by this story! In the beginning of reading this I was a little confused because of all the different moving parts and POVs, but once I realized what was going on and how this story was being told, I became OBSESSED with trying to find out who the killer was and how the murders intertwined together. In the midst of all the killings, we get the romance story of Spencer and Blake, and I loved their dynamic of their banter and teamwork. Without giving anything away from this story, I was THROWN by who was behind the murders, especially since ultimately it wasn’t necessarily the killer, although they had a hand in how excessive and large the murders got. I was extremely into this book and was kept in the edge of my seat trying to figure out all the moving parts. This was my first book from this author but most definitely won’t be my last!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
