Product Description

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.

I read, many books, so it's unusual for me to find a new author and an original storyline, so when this book came up as a new release and it clearly was an original concept, I had to read it. It is different! It's twisted and unapologetic. Like black comedies, this is a dark romance novel, with suspense, violence and many unlikeable characters. It's a fast, thrilling read. Sparrow Raynes never paid any attention to Troy Brennan, until the day he came and told her they were getting married. He is the son of dead mob boss, and she can't figure out why he would want to marry her as she's nothing like the type of women he usually has. She has big dreams but now a prisoner in his house, she doubts he will let her achieve them. As he's "The Fixer," who can make or break someone, she knows she shouldn't push his buttons, but will she heed what her head is telling her. "He gave me lies, and for him, I closed my eyes. " L.J. Shen has such a brilliant writing style, that I found myself highly agitated and angry as if Troy was betraying me. The character development is great, with an action packed, original, and well written storyline that flows smoothly. Do yourself a favour and read this book. This is the first book I've read by this author, and it won't be my last.

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

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.

Wow. I love this book it's just beautiful & perfect. Not too sappy not too harsh, the perfect balance. I fell in love with Troy despite & sometimes because of e life he lives on the other side of the law. Sparrow, well what can I say? She's just got that something special. Amazing read, amazing characters. Highly recommended- you won't regret reading this!
