    4. I give BBB 4.5Kyle Lila are so compatible in their writing style, this book was again written seamlessly, clean and entertaining Its hard to find a book where two authors come together and write such a BA story without knowing who contributed where You don t need to know, because the story takes you where it needs you As I was reading this story I could visually see it unfold in my head It felt like a classic mobster film with all the glitz, guns and gangs, but moved into many years ahead of usn [...]

    5. I was gifted this book by BookRelations Blog during their Facebook spotlight of Author Lila Vale for a honest review Wow When first starting this book I honestly thought I would have a difficult time staying interested in it, as it starts out from Harvey Cline s POV I don t usually read too many books where it is mainly from the man s POV by the end of chapter 2 I was hooked This story takes place in the future after the world has been ravaged by floods and some city s New Biloxi were built to k [...]

This is now the second book I have read by these guys and they re a great team Their writing is so effortless I could read their books all day long This book was recommended to me as I m a fan of dystopian and on reading their other joint work I knew I couldn t pass it up Sometimes when world building, it gets way too technical but they don t do that I understood how this new way of life came about without feeling like a dumbass I m a fan of alternating points of view and they do it so well I m [...]

    7. This was a great read, the pace of the book was steady and had really great characters You have the swampies who live and fend for themselves outside of the dome and then the Biloxi s who live life quiet opposite within the dome, however not all is well with either groups When Harvey decides to visit the swamps to look for a way to help him become the top casino again meeting Norra is not what he had in mind Their meeting not only causes a spark between them but also set about events which will [...]

Outstanding I lived go this book and didn t even look at the description but I absolutely loved it Two different groups living with a tunnel and a dome separating them but there was much separating them Lies and money kept these people apart and for years It took a strong willed swampie woman named Norra and a Casino owner that was on the brink of closing named Harvey to get to the bottom of what was going on The love they find for each other, even though they are ROM two different worlds, is w [...]

Mind blown Action Adventure Romance Twists and turns around every corner It s a winning combination This story grabs on to you from the start and takes you on a wild ride As it passes forth alternating from Norra s viewpoint to Harvey s you get a good angle at what both sides see and feel towards each other and how their predilections towards pre established prejudices determine how they interact with each other An excellent read and a must have addition to any readers collection

    24. I really enjoyed this book I loved the relationship between Norra and Harvey Norra is a sassy take no shit woman who stands her ground and doesn t let people walk all over her Harvey is a typical bad boy and borderline gangster in my opinion I envision Harvey as a HOT bad boy who has everything and knows exactly what he wants whether it be control or money etcThe only negative I have is that when 1 chapter was from Norras POV then the next chapter was from Harveys POV there was no indication who [...]

    25. Bait, Brutes, and Bullets Tales from New Biloxi, by Kyle Perkins and Lila Vale, is a mashup success I ve used mashup because although BBB is listed as Dystopian Sci Fi Romance it s so much than that Yes The environment is dystopian, but the characters dialect and described attire all produced a 1930 s crime romance packed into a dystopian dome feel As usual, I immensely enjoyed Perkins and Vale s unique and descriptive storytelling Action, suspense, hot romance, and even comedy are all interwov [...]

    26. Loved Such a great book by two of my favorite authors Action packed I loved the characters Harvey and Norra He has such am arrogance, confidence and sway to him that you just can t help but love him And Norra is a spitfire who takes no crap from anyone I loved the flow from chapter to chapter, writing style and it was on point A great story about the dystopian Biloxi societies and dome I loved the premise and storyline It was something unique and different to read but still made sense.

    27. I m not normally a fan of dystopia books but as I like both Kyle and Lila s other books, especially their last collaboration Monte, I knew it d be worth the read and I wasn t disappointed, the characters were well written, the story line engrossing and there will be a few suprises along the way.

    28. I wasn t sure if I d like this book or not, then I started it I couldn t put it down I think I laughed out loud reading this book than I ever have with any book I even ordered the paperback before I d even finished it lol, the characters are amazing I love the banter between them all, it s just a pretty amazing book

    29. I loved it It made me laugh It made me mad even at times and ofcourse we cant forget about the romance between Harvey Norra Its a great story
