It’s all part of his sick game. A game he’s been planning for an entire decade. Now everything is perfect: One woman and one man have been selected. They used to be a couple—and they can no longer stand one another. They are the perfect victims. He doesn’t intend for the game to be easy. He wants to push them to the brink of insanity, to make his hunt real. . .

The couple has been captured and dumped into a massive wooded area. There’s only one rule in this fatal game: They will have 72 hours to find a way out before the sadistic serial killer begins his hunt . . .But what he never could have expected was the explosive passion that ignites between the two ex-lovers—one that makes them strong. Fierce. And determined to do whatever it takes to escape—and to survive. . .

72 HoursHe stalked them mercilessly and they didn’t even know it. He had a plan, a game, a twisted hunt and his prey was ripe for the picking. The time is now, so let the games begin! Bella Jewel’s 72 HOURS is a dark and edgy game of cat and mouse set in the backwoods of Florida and you will feel every step of the chase as we follow two people on a run for their very lives, never knowing when the rules could change.

Noah and Lara were lovers, he the steady, strong one and she the fireball of snark, attitude with an inner fierceness that was like an electrical storm zapping at anything in its way. Together they were perfect until Lara’s mouth cost her the life of the only person who believed in her and her proud stance deflated into a deep depression and she found Noah in the arms of another woman.

Now they are nothing, there is tension and their stalker is counting on that tension to shred their ability to work as a team in an attempt to survive. But will Lara and Noah finally talk about their past now that their future only has 72 short hours to it? Will Lara accept the strength and determination that Noah tries to convey? Will her battered ego and her damaged soul have the strength or the will to survive?

Follow their terror-packed run as their stalker baits them, taunts them and comes at them in the maze he has created, just for the fun of the chase.

In turn nail biting, frustrating, sad and heart-melting, follow Lara and Noah as they face injuries and mental abuse at the hands of pure evil. Were they meant to die this way or were they meant to find strength in each other to live just one more hour? Great reading for those who like edge-of-your-seat reading that never lets up! From start to finish nothing but tension, page after page.

I received an ARC edition from St Martin's Paperbacks in exchange for my honest review.
