When everything changes, you have to come out fighting.
It’s been three years since Anna Davis’s boyfriend Freddie Tyler was sent to prison, now he’s back on the streets of London and about to find out that everything has changed.
As Freddie enters his West End club for the first time in years, he finds ex-girlfriend Anna Davis sitting behind his desk, confidently leading his team of men. Anna used to hate the world he lived in, but she has now become a big part of it. And she’s not about to give up running the family business easily.
Anna shows a toughness Freddie has never witnessed in her before when she tells him about her new enterprise, smuggling stolen diamonds through London’s Hatton Garden. And alarm bells start ringing when Freddie meets Anna’s new partner. Cold and ruthless, Roman Gains isn’t someone Freddie trusts around the club and particularly not around Anna.
Whilst tensions flare between Anna and Freddie, a new Russian firm enters their world, determined to bring the Tylers down. And when they take out one of his best men, Freddie has to take drastic action to wrestle control from Anna. But she has other ideas. And when Roman becomes Anna’s closest ally, Freddie finally reaches breaking point. Could this be the fall of the Tyler empire and the last time Freddie and Anna are on the same side?
I am still bouncing up and down. I just want to shout it from the rooftops how totally marvelous this book is!
Reading this series is absolute heaven. You not only think all your Christmases have come at once, it’s actually really happening.
It’s a gangland series and each and every story is a priceless jewel.
I often like main characters in books, but I fell deeply in love with Freddie and the feeling is still growing. I will be in deep mourning when I will be forced to say goodbye to him. I really really really hope the author still has buckets of inspiration for another big pile of sequels.
Freddie is not the only great protagonist. The author has created a whole bunch of steely key players, but under this rock-hard exterior there is a warm heart that beats full of love for and loyalty to their ‘family’.
I just finished the book, but am already counting down to the next one. Keep them coming, please. 5 stars.
Thank you, Emma Tallon and Bookouture.
