If I could give this book 10 stars I would. It compelled me, it drew me in and I was literally fighting for it to never end. I loved the story line. Sparrow was a real feisty character, and Troy a hard nut who was loyal and fell hard. This book contained every emotion I had. I loved it. So will you....

###### THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SLIGHT SPOILERS ######

Troy Brennan is not a man to be messed with, he's known as the Fixer if you're rich and need something or someone handling you come to him. He's the son of a former Mafia boss and his personal project goal is getting revenge on the people responsible for his father's murder.
On top of being ruthless and feared he's also incredibly hot and handsome and about to be married and the lucky girl is Sparrow Raynes. Now Sparrow has known Troy for years but she's had no say in the wedding as far as she's concerned she's been kidnapped and forced into this marriage.
Troy is not a nice man, a fact he constantly reminds Sparrow of and just incase she ever doubts him then he repeatedly does something to reinforce the fact.
Sparrow is so unlike the women Troy's usually seen with, they haven't even had a single date and she's absolutely no idea why he's insisting they get married.
Sparrow's not happy about the marriage but it soon becomes apparent that Troy's not thrilled either so what's going on? Why would someone like Troy marry someone like her?
This book held me from the first page but I struggled with Troy, at times I loved him, I mean come on who doesn't love a bad boy but then he'd be cruel for no reason so at times I hated him sometimes feeling both at almost the same time.
I hate cheating it spoils a book for me and this was my main problem and one thing I couldn't forgive Troy for but then he says....
“I never cheated on you, because we were never really together. You know that and I know that. If we ever were together, I wouldn’t even look at another woman.

With a book review blog not reading for a while isn’t really an option, so I picked up Sparrow by L.J.Shen with the intention of forcing myself through it even if I didn’t really want to read. But I am so glad I did. It was bloody AMAZING. I started getting into it on my break, then when I came home from work at 7am instead of going to bed I stayed up and finished it. I had to. It had its claws in me. Deep. In work I was reading and laughing to myself, grinning and having toe curling moments all on my 60 minute break. I literally struggled to put it away. I loved the brutality of certain parts. The directness, the honesty and the sexiness of others bits just made this a really refreshing read.

Troy Brennan is a ‘Fixer’ and the son of a dead mobster boss. If you have a problem, he can make it go away and I love how Shen doesn’t shy away from using blood and violence. He forces Sparrow Raynes into marriage, for reasons he’s not willing to share, but their union turns out differently than he expects as he realises that Sparrow isn’t going to take everything sitting down. She’s feisty, independent and doesn’t need Troy or his money, so buying her off to keep her happy isn’t going to work.

This book is told from dual POV which I thought was great, because unlike some of the other reviewers on Amazon I LOVED Troy. Yes he’s flawed, and at times a bit of a muppet but he’s the son of a mobster, involved in an organisation that is full of traitors and backstabbers waiting for him to trip up. Who would come out of that unscathed? I also loved Sparrow, she has a fiery temper and a determination that makes her perfect for the guy who bribes, buys, kills or tortures his way into getting everything.

So thank you L.J.Shen, because you brought me out of my book funk with a dark, funny, sexy story that left me wanting more.

This is the first book i have read from this author, I don't normally read other people's reviews before reading but on this occasion I did as the cover as i could not remember what genre it was and the cover picture could have gone a couple of ways, and I was not int he mood for a paranormal read. After reading the 5 star ratings I decided to give it my time. Although I didn't find it as dark as some of the reviews suggested, it was graphic, had a good plot, ad was unpredictable in places. I really liked this book and would recommend it but its not for the screamish.

Wow!

Wow! Wow! Wow! What a bloody brilliant book. Amazingly written, as well. So hats off to the author who even in the midst new baby no sleep craziness managed to write the hell out of this book.

This is Troy and Sparrow's story. There are lots of mob stories out there and this one could have fallen into the forgettable abyss with them. But it won't. Not for me, at least. And that's due to Sparrow. She is a cracker of a character. Quite unforgettable, quick witted, strong, true to herself. All of the things that make an amazing character.

The tension between Troy and Sparrow is constant, sizzling and amazing. You are kept on the edge of your seat the entire time.

The whole triangle (or should I say square) between catriana and Brock also makes for very suspenseful reading. So many plots and subplots going in, but not overcrowding the story so much that you are lost. They are just weaved perfectly.

This is the second book I have read by this author. Can't wait to read more.
