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 runaway from the place where we grew up.
Put simply, Troy Brennan clipped my wings.

I have dreams, big ones, but I doubt he'd ever let me chase them. I have no idea why he'd 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.

Troy Brennan is on a mission.
A mission to revenge his beloved dad.
His death must've somehow been connected to the irish mob in Boston - his dad used to be their boss ages ago.
After killing the two people responsible for his dad's death, there are only two things left to do.
Find and kill the person behind the murder of his dad and then there's one sacrifice he has to make.
A promise he made to his dad.
Marry Sparrow Raynes....
She's a girl that grew up in his neighborhood, but they almost never had any contact with each other - he's ten years her senior. But things we don't yet know about have Troy follow his dad's wishes.

Poor Sparrow.
The 22 year old almost chef (well, at least she wants to work in a kitchen), is kidnapped from home and told that she'll be married to Troy in ten days!
No idea why and how and WHY?? Probably some shit her dad got into.....A debt owed or whatever.

She can't stand her new husband at all.

I feared and loathed Troy Brennan. He was practically untouchable in Boston. Loved among the cops and respected by the local gangs, he was able to get away with murder.

But even though he's almost all bad - he's also very darkishly sexy and some inner idiot in her is getting turned on by him big-time.

He was a cheater.
A criminal.
A murderer.
And I was...fascinated.

But neither Sparrow nor Troy are in this for love and lust.... or are they??? Will they be???
And what about the bad guys who killed his dad?? Who is the bad guy in this story?

What will happen to Sparrow & Troy?
Will this weird beginning of their life turn into love?
Will there be a HEA??
Will everybody survive???
Will there be a horrible Cliffhanger?

Nope - I'm not telling you ☺

no Cliffy of course ☺

I really enjoyed reading the book!!

I'm not the biggest mafia-romance fan on the planet...but here I am, having read this one, and I really loved it!
Yes, there was a bit violence and killing here and there, but pffff, it's a mafia romance, what did I expect?! ☺

...and, what's not to like about a reallllly hot and sexy and gorgeous and did I mention HOT AS HELL son-of-a-dead-ex-mob-boss guy, who's jobs are not all that legal either???? Most of them at least ☺

Troy is really phew!!! Darkishly handsome and really bad! ☺
He thinks he's a psychopath, Sparrow thinks he's a sociopath.... but he's just a really sad, lonely and dark soul, in an amazing body ☺☺☺

I think with all the hating-each-other, the whole love part of the book gets a bit lost. But we're getting there, even if it takes a while!
I really enjoyed the story. Not sure that I could be with someone like that, but Sparrow grew up surrounded by mafia guys. Plus, Sparrow can handle a tiny little mafia son!!!
Poor Troy - he has no idea what he's gotten himself into with his little birdie - but he's slowly getting it!!!

We have lots of sexy and suspensy and frustrating moments in this book!!!!
 If you like sexy and darkish mafia romances and are not turned off by a tiny bit of taboo stuff - this is so the book for you! I loved it!

SPARROW was a beautiful mafia romance! Isn't that an oxymorn? Anyway, I loved it! Lots of sexy & suspensy & frustrating & adorable moments! ☺ GO AND BUY THE BOOK!!!! You don't want to miss Troy & Sparrow!



Writer, reader, blogger, idiot.

When I don't write, I read. Anything from YA, Contemporary Romance, suspense, thrillers, beat-generation stuff and the labels on my deodorants and shampoos.

I live in NorCal with my gorgeous husband and chubby cat and believe in karma, world peace and that Charlie Hunnam was created to make my eyes happy.
