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.

My Thoughts
What can I tell you about Sparrow without giving anything away? I can tell you that this book will consume you. It will steal your breath away. It will leave you absolutely in love with the characters. It will leave you hungry for more. That is what I can tell you about this incredible novel.

I went into Sparrow blindly, after reading the Sinners Of Saint and All Saints High novels. I need more of that all consuming, mind blowing cluster that is the amazingly talent L.J. Shen. So, I dove into this book and fell head over heels for Troy Brennan and Sparrow Raynes. I found myself becoming Sparrow, feeling every emotional moment that she felt. I fell for the mobster man Troy Brennan. That’s an incredible feeling.

If you don’t read another book again, read this one. If you want a book that will capture you, and make you desparate for more, read this book. This magnificent novel is chiseled perfectly and I absolutely want more just like it. This deserves higher than 5 stars and I will forever sing it’s praises!
