A book by this author is always such a treat. Even before I open it, I know I am going to love it and she delivers each and every time.
Her characters are not the most kind people except when it comes to family. They will always come first and most be protected no matter what or who they hurt or have to take revenge on in the process.
The boss of a gangland family is often a man, but don’t underestimate the ladies. They can be as cruel, as vicious as any man. So watch out for the families with a lady boss.
I love the scheming in these books. When you think the family is with the back against the wall, well…
This is true entertainment from the beginning until the last page and I never want the books to end. I just cannot get enough.
As I mentioned before, I was very sad when the previous series came to an end. I still miss Mr Tyler. Am I the only one… 😉
This author’s books want to make me read and read, because they are soo good. On the other hand I want to put them away sometimes to make the pleasure last, because they are soo good, but I cannot help myself. Once I start, I cannot seem to stop. 5 stars
Thank you, Emma Tallon and Bookouture.
