★★★★ 4 Brutal Stars★★★★
I received a copy of this novel via Between the Sheets Promotions as part of a blog tour!
Three Crime Families
One Little Girl
Avery Spillane-Leahy the daughter of two killers, the criminal prodigy of the biggest kingpin in modern time. She is flawless, but only on the outside.
Loss, love and lust can crack even the toughest diamonds.
Inside she is a gaping hole, nothing that gets close is safe from her ruthless blade. She cares for no one, so that no one can wound her. She learned from what Rowan and Callum lost and became an empty vessel unable to be harmed by emotion.
One scorned brother, an old flame and an angel of death dare to come into her world. They will all leave again, some of them in coffins, but they will all go.
The question is what will be left of her?
When the Colours fade and the Grey Madness is gone she is left all alone, a Black Hole Heart with nothing left to lose.
WOAH. Let me start of by saying that I love the role reversal of this book. Instead of getting a dark and twisted male, we get a brutal and twisted female! You don’t see this a lot in books so this really piqued my interest. Let me also say that when I describe the main character Avery as being twisted and brutal, I mean she is like a praying mantis and every male she touches gets eaten (or stabbed) alive. WOW. She is one wicked character. But behind this brutality is something deeper. She thinks that she can’t possibly love, but in the end can she?
This is a very well written book and the author successfully weaved a tale of brutality and love together. At first I thought I was going to hate Avery, but in the end I kind of grew fond of her. She is one badass chick that really rocked this book. She is unlike any character I have read before which makes her kind of special in my opinion. While there were definitely some parts of this book that made me cringe (crocodile farm) and others that made me blush (her sexual encounter with “Matthew”), it is overall a very good story that kept me entertained throughout. However, readers should be warned that this book is not for those who are easily offended. So if you’re looking for a dark and bloody read than I suggest trying this book out!
