See the review for Book 1 Blood and Rust Review
This is book 2 in the New York Crime Kings book series, previously released as Twisted; Book 2 in the Broken Series.
I am definitely a fan of the new title and cover, it really encompasses what we have going on in this book, this den of inequity and the secret lives of the people dwelling within it. This is an amazing sequel to a fabulous book. It must be hard to put so much into such a short book, to put enough content in to keep the story moving without losing your style of writing. It is absolutely nailed in this book, the story flows, seemingly effortlessly, and leaves us completely on tenterhooks waiting for the next installment.
It’s wonderful to see the growth and changing qualities in the characters. How Emily has gone from a wall flower to a lion in such a short space of time but still manages to remain essentially ‘Emily’. The adversities that Jai has come across in life, lived through and moved on, and is taking claim back on his life.
The tale of two unlikely people crossing paths on a train, an occurrence that changes both their lives forever. Will they make it through? Can love conquer all? Will Jai find his brother and avenge his family? So much still in flux and so many questions waiting to be answered.
My favourite quote has got to be “Rain is badass!” I completely agree!
Looking forward to the next chapter in this amazing story x
