Sparrow by L.J. Shen (Book Review)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (5 Stars)

“I love every part of you, the good and the bad, the hopeless and the assertive. We don’t just love. We heal each other with every touch and complete each other with every kiss.”– Troy Brennan

I love a good mafia romance and this one is intense! I loved Sparrow so much. Troy was the perfect asshole. I saw a lot of reviews complaining that he doesn’t evolve too much throughout the book. And that’s true, he doesn’t. Other than learning how to love and treat Sparrow better Troy was and always will be the crazy mafia badass. I guess that when I go into these types of books I really suspend disbelief, and in this world (and ONLY in this fictional world), it’s ok to be with a scary hot mafia dude. Troy is interesting because of it, and the truth is that being born into the same power dynamics Sparrow craves the adrenaline as much as he does. They are one very messed couple, and I just love it.


Also, their chemistry was great, and although yeah I wish that Troy had groveled a bit more for forgiveness I just really wanted to root for them.

5 crazy messed up stars.

So my list is as follows:
#1 Pretty Reckless ★★★★★
#2 Broken Knight ★★★
#3 Angry God TBR
#4 The Hunter & The PreyTBR

Defy (#0.5 sinners of saint) ★★★★
Vicious(#1 sinners of saint) ★★★★★
Ruckus(#2 sinners of saint) ★★★
Scandalous(#3 sinners of saint) ★★★★
Bane(#4 sinners of saint) ★★★
