Just One Bite by Jack Heath @jackheathwriter @harlequinbooks #bookreview #justonebite

Happy Tuesday all!

Sure feels like a Monday today! Excited to share with you my review for this delightfully disturbing story that I absolutely devoured!🤩

My Thoughts


What the actual…. Jack Heath! This book? What! I seriously have not wrapped my head around what I just finished reading? This book was so sick, so twisted, so unique! This is the second book in the Timothy Blake series and I think I might have missed out on a little by not reading the previous book, but it stood well on its own. Timothy Blake was in the FBI in the previous book and is now working as a body disposer for a well-known gangster. When he happens across a body he was not meant to dispose he cannot help but take a bite. Yes that’s what I said… a bite, but it was just one! So what is a cannibal supposed to do with a body with evidence of his less than savory habbit? Stick it in the freezer… of course. Soon after Timothy discovers this body more and more bodies start stacking up and it looks as though Houston has a serial killer on its hands. And of course Timothy find himself in the middle of the investigation. This book was filled with unique characters, dark humor, and a fair amount of Gore. This is definitely not for the faint of heart. But if you have a stomach for gore and a twisted sense of humor this is a entertaining read, for sure!

I don’t even really know what else to say, I am a bit speechless. I’m not even sure what to think of myself because I liked this book so much? Timothy was simultaneously disturbing and likable. I could only imagine how his love interest Reese would feel when she found out she was dating a cannibal? Can you imagine knowing where those lips had been? Yuck! There are also some puzzles sprinkled into this book, puzzles that were really hard for me to solve? I was stumped! I was also stumped by who and what was going on in the city of Houston. I can’t wait for the next installment in this crazy series, but I’m assuming Timothy Blake will have change locations, just a hunch! Time to MoveOn!

Haven’t paired a book with a song in quite some time, but this one just was begging to be Heard!

😋I eat cannibal

Feed on animal

Your love is so edible to me

I eat cannibals

I eat cannibal

It’s incredible

You bring out the animal in me

I eat cannibals

What can you do

You’re in a stew

Hot pot cook it up

I’m never gonna stop

Fancy a bite

My appetite

Yum yum gee it’s fun

Banging on a different drum

And I eat cannibal

Feed on animal

Your love is so edible to me

About the Book

Book Summary:

Timothy Blake, ex-consultant for the FBI, now works in body disposal for a local crime lord. One night he stumbles across a body he wasn’t supposed to find and is forced to hide it. When the FBI calls Blake in to investigate a missing university professor, Blake recognizes him as the dead man in his freezer.

Then another man goes missing. And another.

There’s a serial killer in Houston, Texas, and Blake is running out of time to solve the case. His investigation takes him to a sex doll factory, a sprawling landfill in Louisiana and a secret cabin in the woods.

As they hunt the killer together, FBI agent Reese Thistle starts to warm to Blake—but she also gets closer and closer to discovering his terrible secret.

Can Blake uncover the killer without being exposed himself?

  1. Oh wow, this one sounds dark and interesting. I don’t think I have read any books with cannibal characters. Definitely intrigued. Great review!
