Product Description

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.

Wow...what an experience!

I'll cover the basics first. The plot was clever and well thought out.The pace and flow felt right and the characters were well-defined and developed. Shen's writing style was excellent (at first I thought it was a bit abrupt, but then I got used to it.) A real plus was that the story was told through both characters...I always like to hear how the male character's brain ticks. Their thoughts were honest (not always admirable), revealing and humorous at times.

There were some elements of this narrative that were predictable, but there were others that were totally unexpected and authentic. It was also a strange mix of darkness, violence and immorality with loyalty, a growing affinity between the two opposites (Sparrow and Troy), acceptance and love.

Tons of emotions and conflicting feelings were tumbling around my mind during this read. I found Sparrow easy to like, gorgeous, smart, quirky, feisty and real. Troy was damaged, manipulative, emotionally void and dangerous (yet very appealing, especially when signs of devotion to Sparrow sprouted and grew.) Just as Chen intended, there were times when I found Troy abhorrent. He was just so wrong in many ways, but he seemed so right for Sparrow. Sparrow knew it, too, and she was a realist and tough in her own way. She earned Troy's respect...no mean feat.

There were many links, questions and reveals going on in this book...it had my head spinning. The beginning grabbed me and hit me between the eyes, then the story unfolded like layers of an onion. The climax was fantastic overall (although I'm not sure absolutely every little detail added up ...hence the .5 star variation.)

I can only recommend that lovers of this genre read it and take the journey with Sparrow and Troy.

I really enjoyed reading this book. Somehow it was very similar to the one I tried before it where the hero was supposedly really bad but really wasn't and this read a lot the same. I liked the fact that the characters were a bit stronger in this one even though Mr Completely Badass wasn't all that bad really. In that he is completely redeemable.

The heroine was much better in this one. She was strong, sassy and smart mouthed and she was believable.

There were inconsistencies and weaknesses and it was still quite predictable but overall I enjoyed it.

4 stars.

Sparrow was absolutely fantastic read. I love this book and it has everything from drama, suspense, action, twist, fear, lies, secrets, tears, laughter, excitement, love, passion and hot steamy sex scenes. Leigh definitely knows how to get a story across and make you feel like you are in the story with the characters from page to page. I love Sparrow and Troy. There are so many things I would like to say about this book but I don't like to leave any spoilers so I recommend getting this book to read because it's amazing.

Unique author, story line and characters. LJ Shen has an incredible way with words. I was captivated by Troy and Sparrows story. If you love a heroine with charisma and backbone then Sparrow is for you. This is a story that acknowledges raw, gritty and compelling love that is built on deceit and lies, and the power of a monster stripped bare with genuiness and truth. Witty and captivating.

5 big fat stars. #Chalkygirl

This story has a great, fast paced plot and deep characters that I fell in love with.
At first I thought there was no hope for Troy and Sparrow and this book was going to end sadly. But as the story evolved and twists were revealed, I found myself wanting a happily ever after ending for them and knew I'd be devistated if they didnt get one.
I would reccomend this book to anyone who doesn't mind a few dark scenes.

Totally b*lls to the wall book.
Troy the would be H is captain a..hole. His life is shady, full of lies and deception.
Who takes a woman and married her without giving her a choice.
Sparrow appears as a meek, mild and ineffectual.

He becomes the wood pyre, she's the accelerant. Their collective past becomes the match.

One of a kind, highly recommended.

My first introduction to LJ Wren was with Blood to Dust and absolutely fell in love with this authors work. Didn't think it could get any better but Sparrow just made me fall in love with her even more!
This is a true love story made up of violence, lies and lust but a true love story you will fall for anyway.
Troy is a ruthless, heartless beast with nothing likeable except his body, but somehow he grows on you and has you vying for him all the way.
Sparrow is meek, mild and good. Everything Troy is not! But somehow these two opposites do attract and have sizzling hot chemistry in and out of bed!
The characters are well written, really letting you feel and know them and what makes them who they are. The storyline is well written and developes into a page turner yiu can't put down and never want to end 😦
Hoping this story can be continued, I'm not ready for it to be over.
One of my top reads for the year, 5 stars, this is a MUST READ!

Wow!! This book sucked me in from the prologue! A twisted story full of action and drama! LJ Shen's addictive and powerful narrative had me glued to the pages! I have to admit that the hero Troy Brennan didn't fit my classic definition of a hero with his lying and cheating (this aspect I really found hard to get over) ways but as his love for Sparrow developed, I began to see that there was so much to this monster of a man: "My monster, my capturer, my corrupter. My lover."

My only qualm about the book,which made this 4 stars instead of 5 for me, was that I felt that the last 20% was anti-climatic and rushed. I expected a bigger showdown at the end between the hero and villain. I guess I was expecting something bigger since the whole book had been chock full of action throughout that the final chapters left me feeling indifferent.

Overall, an exciting and thrilling story - I can't wait to read more by this author.
