Product Description

Product Description

Troy 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.

After staying up way past my bedtime to finish this book (because I just could NOT put it down) I find myself desperately wanting to write a glowing review, but am almost at a loss for words. I was so impressed and mesmerized by this story, that I am finding it difficult to find the right words to describe just how much I LOVE this book without revealing too much about the story...........
First let me say that this is not at all the type of book I would normally gravitate toward, but the reviews were all positive and it was inexpensive enough for me to give it a try, despite my being less than enthusiastic. I like alpha male romances as much as the next girl, and I certainly find bad boys appealing, but the whole mob/gangster thing -not so much. I had this pegged as a predictable and simple story, you know...the big, bad wolf being tamed by the sassy yet submissive heroine, who ultimately helps him find his redemption. But this is so much more than I though it would be. I don't want to give anything away, especially as unravelling the many secrets in the plot is part of the thrill of this book, so I will only describe what reading this was like for me.

From page one my curiosity was piqued and I immediately felt fondness for Sparrow. The poor girl finds herself in the most unexpected situation and has little choice but to roll with it, but the question is "why?". She has absolutely no clue "why her"? and her soon-to-be husband is less than forthcoming. This book did an amazing job of keeping me at the edge of my seat, trying to figure out WTH was going on, while leaving a trail of breadcrumbs. Nothing about this is as simple as it seems and trying to unravel the secrets was a tortuous thrill for me.

I can't say how refreshing it was to read a story where the characters grow and develop, while staying true to themselves. AMAZING! I very much enjoyed this story because regardless of topic, to me it was actually so well written... Sparrow is true to herself and you can't help but empathize with her. When she sees red, we see red. And Troy, his point of view is fantastic! It's like his imperfections and actions, while crazy, you see why they make total sense to him and you can't help but find yourself sharing an understanding. Truly a scary thought when you know who he is = lol. One can't help but love these characters. I sweare you'll read this book and read it fast; not just to find out what happens but because it's a freshingly wonderful read!

This book was full of drama and suspense. It wasn't just another mafia story. It was a good mystery drama that will keep you intrigued. Troy is one of those characters that you hate to love. He is cruel, angry, spoiled, fixer upper guy who can get out of any situation easily. Sparrow on the other hand is a lovely, smart, sensible girl who is being forced to marry Troy. The story takes a few twist and turns but never once lost my interest. I loved the part other characters like Cat and Brock played in Troy's life. I will definitely be looking forward to more books from this author.

This story was showed promise until the 40% mark then just fell flat! The m/c Sparrow was fiesty one minute then childish the next and I found myself doing the eyeroll too many times! The other characters just weren't believable either so I basically skimmed thru the rest of the book! :-/

I saw this book in one of my reading groups on Facebook and had to read it.
The book is refreshing and different in a good way.
I loved everything about her writing and how well the story flowed. There was not one part in the book that I felt dragged or was boring.
Definetly recommend reading!

After being recommended this book by a woman who I swear enjoys sharing books that are designed to put me through the emotional ringer, I picked this one up and dived straight in.
I don’t regret it for a second.
Now I could sit here and tell you about every little thing that happens, but I won’t because this is one of those books that so much happens in that there’s almost a fear of giving things away and I’d hate to do that.
It’s a darker, edgier read. One filled with just the right amount of intrigue, suspense and at one point, I’d go out on a limb and say it even had a thriller type feel. There was just no way of knowing at any given point which way this one was going to play out by the time you turned the last page.
What starts as almost an arranged type marriage situation quickly turns into something deeper, so much more than that. There are many players and each of them has their part to play and at times, what hand is shown is not what is really going on under the surface. There were so many things that happened here I have to honestly say I didn’t see coming and I loved every second of it.
It’s one of those books that’s incredibly hard to put down once you’ve started, but also one that has almost perfect pacing. Everything happened in the way and time that I feel it should have. It didn’t feel forced (even if at times Sparrow may have been “forced” into the situation lol) and by the time I reached the end and the way everything finally came together, I can say I was left completely satisfied.
For this couple, for Troy and Sparrow as individuals. It all came together in the perfect way.
L.J. Shen…you have made a believer out of me. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next.
