Sparrow by L.J. Shen ~Promo & Review

27263454Troy Brennan

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.

Sparrow Raynes

That’s me. No one seemed to remember my name up until he barged into my life.
But then he caged me.
Kidnapped 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.

Whew!!!! What a crazy twisted ride! I loved it. This is a new author for me and I have to say… she’s great! Sparrow was a book I took a chance on and I’m so glad I did. Lots of emotions in this one folks. I was mad, happy, giddy, and left in utter shock!

Troy is an asshole! It’s okay for me to say that because he admits it himself. His life has been purely based on revenge. Revenge for father. Revenge is his driving force and at some points I didn’t know if he would breakthrough. I was just as anxious for him as I was Sparrow.

Sparrow is a little spit fire. But having family in the mob isn’t ideal. Forced to marry the biggest asshole she knew. She decided to fight. Fight for herself because no one else would fight for her. I freaking loved this about her. She didn’t give up and held on and gave back what she was given and then some.

Sparrow and Troy have some serious sexual tension. Sweet jesus it was hot. I also lobed how although things were tense and often not the best they could still laugh and have humor. This was a great read and I am so glad I took a chance on this one. Definitely a must read!
