It’s funny how sometimes the people you’d take a bullet for are the ones behind the trigger. “The Blank” by T. D. Barnett is a story about jealousy, envy, greed and betrayal. It revolves around Tom Blank, a rich millionaire and playboy, who does not value money. He is the sole heir to a Fortune 500 company – “The Blank Marketing Pvt Ltd.”, a company built and owned by his father Jack Blank.
Jack is a self-made man who believes in hard work. He wants his son Tom to take over the company and become CEO after him, but, as it usually happens, Tom takes everything for granted and does not want to work hard for anything. To make him understand, Jack decides to make some changes. He makes sure that everything Tom has, from then on, is earned by him and not given to him on a silver plate. If he does not step up his game then he will not be entitled to receive anything and everything will go to Chris, once Tom’s best friend. Chris has been working with Jack for the past three years and has been quite an asset to “The Blank” company. He secretly had his heart set on taking over the company once Jack retires, but when he hears that Jack wants Tom to be the CEO instead of him, he becomes furious.
Will Chris betray his childhood best friend? Will Tom be able to work hard and become CEO, like his father wanted? Or does destiny have other plans for both?
The author has done a brilliant job writing an engaging and enchanting story. The characters are easily likeable and the dialogues used are quite simple, which helps its readers to relate themselves to the characters. The author has done an excellent job in keeping his readers intrigued till the end. You never know what exactly is going to happen, which characters are good and which are not. The storyline, though simple, flows quite smoothly. I would recommend this book to those who like a simple plot with lots of twists and turns.
I enjoyed the book but at many times felt the book is more of adult erotica than a suspense thriller. The sex scenes have been defined to great extents and quite a few times in the book, which hampers with the story. Overall, the characters and the plot make it a decent read. I am looking forward to what the author has for us in future.
