    14. The premise of the book is a mob boss s son marrying the town tomboy He is kind of forced by his father to do so, but we aren t told why exactly until the end of the book.What didn t work for me 1 The hero was an a s s h o l e Don t get me wrong, I love an asshole with a heart of gold, but this guy did not have one endearing quality He spends about 70% of the book lying, cheating, and every somewhat decent remark that comes out of his mouth is later taken back when he talks about it in his POV H [...]


    15. 4 Stars Now LIVE US UKThe cover and the blurb lured me hook, line and sinker into this book, so when the author sent me Sparrow to review, I dove straight in whilst trying really hard not to have any high expectations I have to admit that it s been a long while since I read a Mafia type book that I have enjoyed that s felt authentic, without being over the top and gratuitous for the sake of it.My first impressions were that the writing was absolutely fantastic, I love the authors writing style a [...]

Well, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this book This is the first time I have read anything by this author, but I can honestly say that I will be eager to pick up her other work as I enjoyed this one very much I will admit that the first half of the book I wasn t quite sure what I was thinking or feeling by the second half I was all in, and fully invested in the characters.Troy Brennan s father was a member of the mob and had been killed Troy had only vengeance on his mind, oh a [...]
