Review: Sparrow by L.J. Shen
Publication Date: 8th March 2016
Every Southie in Boston knows that name. The son of a dead mobster. The heart-throb with steel-blue eyes. "The Fixer" who can make or break you in this city.
Oh, and my new husband.
That's me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life.
But then he caged me.
And killed every chance I had to run away from the place where we grew up.
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings.
I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he'll ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he decided to take me as his wife. But I do know this: pissing off this man will not do me any good. At all.
Sparrow is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
I really didn't know what to make of this book... It was interesting enough, the romance was okay but it's definitely not going to suit everyone's tastes. It's a bit of a mafia romance, but Troy isn't really mafia; He is a 'fixer'. Neither of the main characters was particularly likeable nor relate-able and there was plenty of moments that really pushed my buttons, and not in a good way, *cough* cheating *cough*... The book is complicated, but it's interesting and I'd read another from this author as I quite liked her writing style but I'd say don't read this if you're not a fan of dark and gritty.
