You can understand why someone like Grace would fall for Nathan. He is good looking and very charismatic. He is also someone who likes to be in control at all times and thinks he is unbreakable. There are glimpses of his past that did make me feel slightly sorry for him but his constant arrogance made sure that didn’t last for long.
Whilst this is a gangland novel and you can very much see that throughout the story, the author has focused on the relationship between Grace and Nathan with tensions getting higher the further into it we get. Boy did it have me hooked and I was dying to pick my kindle back up at every opportunity I could to see what was going to happen next and whether Grace could ever be free from this monster.
The Boss is a truly nail biting and gripping read. The build up of tension was sending my emotions into over drive. The story is set at a steady pace which then sent me hurtling towards the end at full speed whilst it took unexpected twists and turns. All I can say is what an ending and I can still fill my heart thumping now just thinking about it. What a brilliant debut novel!
🤜🏻💥🤛🏻 BOOM! An absolutely brilliant opening that instantly intrigued me – I HAD to know more! How is this a debut novel? The story is told via a dual timeline and various third person POV’s – what I love about this is that you get to know more about what is happening from the different perspectives. The whole picture is delivered as a total tease until the revelations unfold and you are left picking your jaw up from the floor!
The novel is perfectly paced, with short, sharp chapters that leave you NEEDING to turn those pages! I love the setting and it’s clear the author has a compelling approach to bringing this genre into the present. And I can’t leave out the nail-biting, brilliant, OMG moments – Caz Finlay has NAILED IT.
Character-wise we have Grace Sumner – a force of nature and not one you want to mess about, that’s for sure. She is strong, independent and fierce as heck. Grace would do anything to protect those she love – ANYTHING! But will she get her happily ever after?
Nathan Conlon – a law unto himself, I was both drawn and repulsed by him. Overall, he’s a nasty piece of work and absolutely underestimates Grace…BIG MISTAKE. Manipulative, cunning, selfish – this guy made my skin crawl. Will Karma get him?
I’m desperate to talk about more of the fabulous cast of characters in this novel, but I think that would ruin it – as each one plays a role and it was fun to see who would succeed and who wouldn’t.
Do I recommend this read? You bet your sweet backside I would. Gritty, raw, fierce and addictive, The Boss is perfect for those who just LOVE a gangland thriller. I love when I come across a new author, and Caz Finlay is well on my radar now.
Set in Liverpool, Grace has been dreading this day, her ex Nathan Conlon was out, released from prison and wanting to see their son Jake.
But Grace wasn't the same timid girl anymore, 12 years before the girl that put up with his controlling, manipulative and abusive way was not going to stand there this time. This was a different Grace wanting to protect her 18 year old son, that looked like him so much. She was not going to let him become like him and get mixed up in his business.
Was there a better way to protect Jake? Or herself? Particularly from Nathan. Was the only way to defeat the monster to become one yourself?
Whilst Nathan had been doing a 12 year stretch she had been building her own empire. Grace has been collecting secrets, secrets she may need to tell, she is now The Boss
Nathan however has one thing on his mind and that's to win his ex wife back. And take everything along the way including their son.
I absolutely loved this.
It was gritty, fast paced and I couldn't put it down.
Told in a past and present tense it flowed really well.
I loved Grace and Nathan was a fantastic character and his possessiveness towards Grace could be terrifying one minute and endearing the next.... a true psychopath.
The plot was full of secrets, twists and turns as Grace fights back.
Kept my attention from start to finish.
This is my first book by Caz Finlay but it won't be my last.
