A dark secret and a deadly score to settle...
In 1997 teenager Sophie White and her three girlfriends decide they want to lose their innocence before summer is over.
Roping in her childhood buddy Gareth and his mates, Sophie holds a party to get 'the deed' over and done with, but the night doesn’t end as planned.
Twenty years later, the group are brought back together when Gareth is killed in a car accident and Sophie begins receiving threatening messages. It seems the party wasn’t as
innocent as everyone thought and now someone wants payback.
A gripping, highly addictive game of cat and mouse where the past comes back with vengeance. Perfect for the fans of Kimberley Chambers, Emma Tallon and Jessie Keane.

I recently read Stalker by Gemma Rogers and enjoyed it, I knew i'd be watching out for any other books by her. When I saw Payback on 'Netgalley I was thrilled when my request to read an ARC of it was approved.
It took me no time at all to fly through the pages of this book. I found it a very easy and enjoyable read.
I really think Gemma is going to be an author to watch out for, her style of writing is what helps keep you gripped, enough going on and suspense to keep you wanting to read on.
I loved the idea behind this story, how your teenage years can, in years to come change your life totally. What you think is just teenage fun can have a effect on people years down the line.
Friends decided they are all ready to lose their virginity. Deciding they should all do this at the same time the organise a little get together with a group of friends and decide who will be paired up with who.
Years later when one of the group is killed in an accident, things start to come back to haunt Sophie, how can she change things that happened in the past.
A gripping read that will leave you wanting more.
When you’re working undercover the smallest mistake can cost you your life.
Detective Constable Bailey Morgan has been out of the undercover game since her last job went horribly wrong, leaving her with scars inside and out.
When her colleague Alice is found dead whilst working deep cover in a women’s prison, Bailey steps in to replace her.
Working alone, Bailey embarks on a dangerous journey through the murky underbelly of the prison and soon discovers that Alice’s death was part of a spate of brutal murders.
Surrounded by prison officers, criminals and lowlifes, the slightest mistake could cost Bailey her life.
Illicit drug trafficking, prison gangs and corruption are just some of the things she’s up against… and behind it all lurks a sinister and terrifying secret that will truly test her survival instincts.
Heart-stopping and gripping. Perfect for the fans of hit TV shows such as Line of Duty, Orange is the New Black and Bad Girls.
Ohhhhh don't you just love it when you find yourself a new author. What a brilliant book this was. I loved every moment of it and found it a thrilling read.
When I saw this book I had a slight feeling it was going to something similar to a lot of other books I had read, yet I was still eager to give it a go.. I'm so glad I did. It was exciting, fresh, realistic it was gripping, so much so that each time real life took over and I had to put my kindle down I couldn't wait to pick it up again.
Some great character in this book and I love the turns and the way the book went.
When Bailey is offered the chance to go under cover in a women's prison I don't think she realised just what sort of danger she could be in. Her friend and fellow office had just been murdered while do the roll that Baily is now going to do.
How deep corruption in the prison goes is unclear which is why it's decided that no one, not even the prison governor will know that Bailey is undercover.
A tense gripping read that drags you into the storyline. An author I will certainly watch out for in the future.
