When loyalty is everything, betrayal hits harder.
Anna Davis has grown up. She’s not the naive runaway who escaped her vicious gangland boyfriend anymore. She’s tougher than ever and she won’t let anyone take advantage of her – or the people she loves.
Anna’s devoted boyfriend, East End baron Freddie Tyler, is in trouble. There’s a rat in his organisation and he needs to stop the leaks before a very big mistake from his past is revealed to people who will want swift and brutal revenge.
Anna wants to help Freddie but she’s got problems of her own. Her best friend Tanya’s mother has turned up, and is staking a claim on Tanya’s share of their club. With Tanya buying her mum’s reformed sinner act, Anna knows she needs to act before both their friendship and Club Anya goes up in flames.
But if there’s one thing Anna and Freddie have learned, it’s how to play the game, and as their enemies close in they’ll fight with everything they’ve got to protect the life they’ve built.
I am certain avid readers know this feeling : you want to finish a book because it has a hold on you and won’t let you put it down,. On the other hand you want to extend the reading pleasure by putting it away for a bit, but you can’t resist for too long. The story pulls you back time and time again.
Well, I can honestly say that is exactely what this series does to me. I have to admit I did not read book 1 yet, but the moment I found out about this series, I was hooked, seriously hooked.
People who have read the other reviews I wrote about them might remember that I fell in love with Freddie as soon as I met him. I can say that our ‘relationship’ is still going strong, very strong. I would marry him on the dot 😉
So, yes, dear Emma, you did it again!
Line up some ‘boxes’ labelled ‘nail biting’, ‘heartbreaking’, ‘fierce’, ‘chills running down the spine’ and let Emma do the mixing. I assure you she will come up with a mind blowing, utterly gripping and smashing story.
5 big, fat, shiny stars (and for Freddie as well lol). This is a series I do not ever want to end. Even after 100 books I would still be not ready to say goodbye to him (or any of the other characters).
Thank you, Emma Tallon, Bookouture and Negalley.
About the author
Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.
In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.
In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and re-released as Runaway Girl.
Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.
With more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.
