    1. 3 Everyone Loved it But MeAgain Stars *Spoiler-ish*This was me when I finished this book:Now, let me get one thing straight before I say anything else:L.J. Shen can fucking write. I totally jived with her composition style and I loved me some Shen metaphors and analogies. Because WITTY. Need some examples?I am here but to serve, people."I settled in my seat on the wooden bench, my ass hitting the scarred pew with a bang. At 6'4", I looked like a giant trying to fit into a Barbie Dream House." "T [...]


    2. 4.5 Stars!!Well…this one turned out to be so much more than I had expected. L.J. Shen delivered an intriguing tale that held my attention from the very beginning. A great mix of steam, action and suspense with a little bit of drama, 'Sparrow' was fast-paced, entertaining until the end and also written pretty well because to be honest, I couldn’t put it down. I other words, I devoured it!“…he was the kind of guy to show up in the local news for all the wrong reasons. He was trouble—hot [...]


    3. This was a nice, Irish Mafia love story. Every once in awhile, I like to read a mob love-story and this one fit the bill. It wasn't the best I've read, but it was still good and worthwhile read.Sparrow is pretty much abducted by Troy Brennan, an Irish mob boss. Her father works for him and she isn't really in a position to resist Troy's demands. When he tells her that they are to be wed, she soon finds herself a reluctant participant in her own wedding. Now, you might imagine that Troy was some [...]


    4. 4 starsWhat a pleasant surprise!This book was delicious.I'm borderline obsessed with mafia books. Wouldn’t it be awesome to live just one day having all the power, breaking the rules and living on your own terms (but without the actual killing. You know, more like in a video game.)But what I really don’t understand is why I love a**holes. Why are women attracted to jerks? On the one hand, we want super sweet, caring, and polite guys who give us stability. Sounds boring, right? Jerks are so m [...]


    5. 4.5 Stars”He has a troubled past. A disastrous future. And I’m about to become part of his present, whether I liked it or not.”This new to be author delivered a fast paced, exciting story. It's about the son of a mob boss, Troy Brennan, crossing off names on a revenge hit list and making good on a promise he made to his deceased father. ”I knew that the road to success was paved with sacrifices. Sparrow Raynes was my sacrifice. I promised I’d marry her, and I had.”Troy marries Sparro [...]

But now that man is dead, and his son who's known to be even more ruthless is to be her husbandd she has no idea why other than it's been arranged and her father agreed to it.

    7. 5++++++RED HOT Stars************(ARC kindly provided by author in exchange for an honest review)I love discovering new authors, and last year I read the debut novel by L.J Shen and I was very impressed with her work. She writes the kind of stories I like to read, strong and complex characters, passionate plots, with a hint of humor. Now, with this new book I was in total awe. Sparrow had all the components I look for in a story and more. I fell head over heels in love with Troy and Sparrow's sto [...]

    10. 5 Stars !Sparrow is the dark twisted tale of the son of a mobster and the girl he forcibly marries. This book is twisted, dark, sexy, passionate, intense and an enthralling read. Troy and Sparrow are two extremely well written characters that they take us on their journey and will not let go until the end.Troy is an ass**** and manwhore. He is unapologetic, dark, twisted, fearless, cocky, confident and very very complicated. The things he hides and the reasons for his actions are revealed only a [...]

A lover of blueberry pancakes, hot chocolate, sweet summer air and unapologetic boyfriend jeans. That kid. Troy Brennan made a promise, one he unenthusiastically complies with.

    12. Let me tell you how I spent the day after receiving this arc from the (amazing!) author L.J. Shen:It was late at night when I got it and I had a "bad" feeling (as in "I'm not going to get any sleep if I start this book now") about starting it so I decided to postpone it until morningd that's when it all went to shit (no pun intended :P)WellI made the "mistake" of starting the book bright and earlyAnd from then on I was unable to put it down of course I was late to work (but only by one hour :P)d [...]


    13. NOW LIVE!* US* UK*Troy Brennan is not a nice man, and the residents of South Boston know to stay clear of his path if they want to keep their life. Troy's name is synonymous with death for those that cross him, so they stay away. But for Sparrow Raynes, she didn't have that option since Troy came looking for her. Somehow she finds herself married to him, and trapped in a life she wants no part of, and has no idea how she started living.When LJ Shen asked if I wanted to review this book I jumped [...]


    14. The premise of the book is a mob boss’s son marrying the town tomboy. He is kind of forced by his father to do so, but we aren’t told why exactly until the end of the book.What didn’t work for me:1. The hero was an a-s-s-h-o-l-e. Don’t get me wrong, I love an asshole with a heart of gold, but this guy did not have one endearing quality. He spends about 70% of the book lying, cheating, and every somewhat decent remark that comes out of his mouth is later taken back when he talks about it [...]


    15. ★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★Now LIVE! US | UKThe cover and the blurb lured me hook, line and sinker into this book, so when the author sent me Sparrow to review, I dove straight in whilst trying really hard not to have any high expectations. I have to admit that it's been a long while since I read a Mafia type book that I have enjoyed that's felt authentic, without being over the top and gratuitous for the sake of it.My first impressions were that the writing was absolutely fantastic, I lo [...]


    16. Title: SparrowSeries: StandaloneAuthor: LJ ShenRelease Date:8 March, 2016Rating: 4.5 stars Cliffhanger:. No HEA:(view spoiler)[ Yes (hide spoiler)]Some time ago I’ve read and really enjoyed LJ Shen’s debut novel titled Tyed. I was curious to see how her next story will play out. The blurb of mysterious ‘Sparrow’ revealed very little so I didn’t know exactly what to expect. I thought it would be rough mob story (and it was in many ways) but it turned out to be super angsty love story wi [...]


    17. Genre: Contemporary RomanceType: StandalonePOV: First Person - DualRating: Troy Brennan was the heir of a well known slain Irish mob boss. But unlike his father, he took a different path and left mob life. However, he wasn’t far from being an angel. He had a mission to accomplish and one of them was marrying a girl he known most of his life.Sparrow Raynes was just a plain, regular young woman when she was unwillingly plucked into a different life. Having a hard time adjusting to a new environm [...]


    18. 4.5 starsI decided to read this book on a whim. I was browsing , saw the cover, read the first few lines of the description, and clicked buy; mostly because I am total cover whore, and it was free with Prime Reading. I'm happy to report that I made a great decision. I love antiheroes, hate to love romances, alpha males, and strong, sassy heroines. This ticked off all those boxes for me. Everybody is afraid of Troy Brennan, the son of a deceased Irish mob king, and with good reason. He is smart, [...]


    19. Well, I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by this book! This is the first time I have read anything by this author, but I can honestly say that I will be eager to pick up her other work as I enjoyed this one very much! I will admit that the first half of the book I wasn't quite sure what I was thinking or feeling; by the second half I was all in, and fully invested in the characters.Troy Brennan's father was a member of the mob and had been killed. Troy had only vengeance on his mind, [...]

    23. 4 Red STARSThis was a really enjoyable and at times dark but not in a deep and depraved way, more in angst and despair.“…he was also cruel – a savage in a tailored suit – but at the same time, he’d never hurt me.”I went in blind, only knowing that Ms. Shen had written Tyed and I really enjoyed that one! This was good with a bit of the whole captive/captor thing as well as a revenge plot, an alpha asshole anti-hero, spunky heroine and a nasty bitch to hate. Seriously, there was lots t [...]

I had no idea what was happening or eve [...]


    25. ➦I'm normally not a huge fan of anything mafia/crime related or dark, for that matter, but this has an arranged marriage trope and I looooovedso I decided to give this a shot. Well, it was more of a "forced marriage" trope. Because when you're a powerful mobster you do what you want, k? :D➦Here I didn't really feel a gradual development in the relationship. Just seemed like these two were hating each other until one day they didn't. I might be talking nonsense Whatever, this is not really a [...]


    26. I usually don't read books that are solely about two people falling in love, but Sparrow does stand out from the bunch. LJ Shen's romance was unique because of Troy Brennan, a murderer, thug, asshole, chauvinist, and also the protagonist of the story. At first this pissed me off to no end, but I warmed to the concept when I realized that Shen wasn't trying to pass Troy off as a hero. She never justified his actions or forgave his nature just because he happens to fall in love with a woman. The a [...]

    28. ‘My Father had sinned but I was to be punished.’We didn’t really know what to expect when we began reading Sparrow as this is a new Author to us, all we knew was; it was mob related and the synopsis grabbed us. Upon starting we were immediately swept up in this dark and raw passionate story and hated having to stop reading for real life interruptions.“If I can’t eat it, fuck it or kill it I have no interest in it.” – Troy Brennan‘Troy Brennan was Boston’s master manipulator, pu [...]


    29. “Troy Brennan was the devil, but sometimes, even good girls wanted a healthy dose of evil in their lives.”I can safely say Troy was the most assholey hero I’ve ever read about. Ya’ll who think Vicious is worse than Troy are cray cray. (cough cough Nancy.)There were two major reasons why:1. Vicious actually liked our heroine. He didn’t see anyone else but her, even though he hated her in a way. Troy doesn’t even like our heroine—he even compares her ass to his mistress’s, saying h [...]
