Monster by Ben Burgess Jr.

monsterLove and loyalty should go hand in hand when in a committed relationship, but how do you deal when the person that you are loyal to and are in love with no longer feels the same way about you?  Do you do your best to cope with the situation or turn your back on love forever?

Ken Ferguson has had an interesting life.  Ken has grown up with self-esteem issues because he is very dark-skinned and was teased as a child, he doesn’t know what healthy love looks like because his parents are the poster children for being in a dysfunctional relationship.  The only thing that Ken has going for himself is the fact that he is a very nice and sweet guy, this makes his friends love him all the more and as he gets older it draws the women to him.  When Ken gets his heart-broken by the one woman who he thought was going to be his wife this changes Ken, changes him into something that he can deal with and something that no one wants to see.  How will Ken survive in life with this mentality or will he survive at all?

Monster is a very well written love story.  This story makes you smile and at times it makes you frown but the fact that it ignites your emotions is going to keep you reading.  The story line is strong, the characters keep you talking and questioning them to get the answers that you want or maybe need but it keeps you there in the story.  This is my first read by Ben Burgess Jr. and I look forward to reading more from him in the future.

Monster is available for purchase through Amazon.com (paperback and Kindle) and BN.com (paperback and Nook).

One thought on “Monster by Ben Burgess Jr.

  1. This cover really caught my eye and the story line is intriguing. I’ve read many stories that owe their tension to past deeds, be it from family or acquaintances. I’m interested to see from this book if Ken Ferguson can live beyond the hurts of his past or allow them to consume him in death.
