Sparrow by L.J. Shen


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

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

Mary Jo☆☆☆☆
This story hooked me from page one and I stayed up ‘til 4 a.m. to finish it. Sparrow is a poor girl living in the shadows of everyone, keeping her head down and doing her best to exceed the limited expectations people have of girls who grow up in South Boston.

Imagine her surprise when Troy Brennan "asks" her father for her hand in marriage, and when her father agrees, installs her in his penthouse in the ritzy part of the city. Unsure of why Troy chose her, she figures it has something to do with the "business" her father and Troy are involved in. Not wanting to know more and afraid to say no, Sparrow goes along with the marriage.

Over the course of the book, Sparrow and Troy find their footing with each other and do their best to keep their hearts intact.

Lots of intrigue and angst and I loved every word.
