Book Review: Bullseye by Monica James

Bullseye (The Monsters Within Duet #1)
by Monica James
Release Date: 2/20/20
Source: Author
For twelve long years, I’ve breathed, I’ve bled for only one thing…

Revenge.

Four men took something from me, something which can never be replaced. That one night changed the lives of so many and taught me that monsters are real.

But I also learned I’m the biggest monster of them all.

Nothing and no one will stand in my way of redemption because those men…they’re now three. The fourth—he is the reason they call me Bullseye. They can run, but sooner or later, I’ll find them, just as I did with their friend. They’re already dead…they just don’t know it yet.

My plan was simple until I met her. A fierce tiger who had the power to break my heart. Lucky for me…she can’t break what’s already broken. I am no longer a man because the world is a jungle, and we’re all just animals—ready to tear one another apart.


I absolutely love Monica James' dark romances, so when I saw she had a new duet coming out, and after seeing that gorgeous cover, I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book.

This book starts the day that Bullseye gets released from jail and I was immediately intrigued by his character. We knew that he was out for revenge, but we don't know what that revenge was until about 20% into the book. I love myself a damaged hero and Bullseye is as damaged as they come. I loved how we were slowly given information about his past and those flashbacks were just heartbreaking to read. I was actually rooting for Bullseye to get his revenge even though it was totally illegal and brutal. 

When it came to the romance, I did enjoy how Lily and Bullseye kind of circled each other until they couldn't resist their attraction anymore. I was intrigued by Lily and wished we got more of her as a mom. I feel like we only got to know her with Bullseye or at her two jobs (one as a dance teacher and one as a stripper), but we didn't see a lot of her actually with her son, which was a big part of her identity. While the ending definitely left me wanting book two ASAP, I did see that twist coming super early into the book, which took this book down a star for me. Other than that, though, I really enjoyed this romance and how both characters were trying to ignore their feelings because of the baggage they both carry. 

As usual, Monica James pulled me in with her dark and twisted romance. She knows how to create dark but utterly seductive bad boys that you can't help but love. I did not want to put this book down and am eagerly anticipating the next book!

  1. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.

  2. Can I just say what a relief to find someone who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to read this and understand this side of the story. I cant believe youre not more popular because you definitely have the gift.
