Sparrow is taken against her will by Troy Brennan, the well known son of a mobster, who runs Boston. Forced to marry this dangerous man, Sparrow feels like a caged bird and although she is desperate to escape pissing off Troy is death wish. 

Ever read a book that you hate the fact that you really enjoyed it? Well this one is that book for me and it has nothing against the writer.

This was a well written book. Seriously, it was written very well. Predictable in the sense? Yes.  Because certain things happened very obviously and other things did not. The pace in this novel was great; things moved in real time and there wasn’t much of nothing going on; something even emotionally was happening.

Sparrow was. . . how do I put it . . . typical. I was so upset at her for what happened. I literally wanted to pull my hair out. How can she even remotely . . . UGHH! I liked Sparrow but I think that she may be a bit of an idiot. In regards to Troy, he was a great character for what he was. I didn’t expect anything more from him (This isn’t a bad thing). I liked how he was written. My only issue would be the lack of character development with him. He grew a heart but he was a take it or leave it type of guy. And I didn’t know how I felt about that when I finished the book.

What I didn’t like about this book was the cliche of it all. Although I loved it, it is still very cliche and it made me feel some type of way as a woman. Why? I can’t tell you because it will probably make you not want to read the book and I actually want you to read this book.

I loved the details and the flow within each chapter and I loved loved the excitement and rush I felt reading this.

Overall, although this is my hate to love book,
