Description

Once upon a time, there was a guy who got so fed up with life that he resorted to murder and mayhem just to feel alive.

Lorenzo Gambini is bored. So f--king bored. Most people either annoy him or avoid him, afraid to face him. Figuratively. Literally. With his face partially disfigured, scarred, he looks every bit the monster the stories make him out to be: the notorious Scar. They say he's a sociopath. Maybe he's a psychopath. Whatever path he's on, people tend to stay far away from it.

Until one day, a young woman bumps right into him - a woman just as fed up with life, but for much different reasons. With a scarlet letter inked on her wrist and secrets buried deep in her soul, Morgan Myers is running from something...or maybe somebody. Lorenzo isn't quite sure. You can bet your ass he's going to figure it out, though.

Contains mature themes.

Buyer be Ware, It's a Cliffhanger

Ok, so I'll start off with explaining my review process. A 5 star book must contain the following nine areas: Lots of laughs/heart wrentching or both , hot steamy sex, relatable/believable (I don't care if it's about vampires or mythical creatures, as long as the rest of the story is convincing), excellent narration, detailed but not excessively, keeps your attention and finally, worth listening to more than once. This book was not the best I've ever listened to but not the worst either....was OK. It contained 5 out of the 9. I will however say the suspense was great (and I hate suspenses, I'm the person who reads the last chapter of a book if the suspense is too much of a wait), and the plot was completely unpredictable. It's not your average story but enjoyable. Lastly, I hate cliffhangers with a passion, because I simply cannot wait to know what will happen next, and in many cases, it leaves me pissed off for days; but this one didn't leave me angry at all, I could live a few months or years for the next book. Which translates to being just an OK book.

Dark and less than perfect

Lorenzo and Morgan are such an interesting pair. Lorenzo is a cold hearted killer and crime boss. Morgan is a stripper with a sad secret. One thing I liked about this story is that it's not hearts and flowers. For one, the hero has a terrifying scar on his face, making him blind in one eye. The heroine picks pockets and often finds herself at the mercy of very predatory men. There is also an interesting but tragic twist in her backstory (no spoilers). While Lorenzo and Morgan do end up together, I would argue that they have more of a FWB situation than a romantic relationship. Their banter was funny despite the dark tone of the story. Just a heads up, this ends on a cliffhanger.

I liked Iggy Toma. He really understood the characters and the story.

Another great story!

I haven’t read a J. M. Darhower book that I haven’t enjoyed and this one is no exception. The author created another world that is definitely unputdownable.

Amazing!

This was probably one of the best audiobooks I’ve ever listened to. Well written, superbly narrated, I wished it was even longer. I’m glad there’s a sequel, which I’ve immediately purchased.

I won’t give away plot details, except to say that this isn’t your normal girl-next-door falls for sweet/hot/misunderstood alpha male. These are two broken people living hard, tumultuous lives. They aren’t perfect or even very nice in many cases. But this makes the story 10x better, and way more fascinating.

Narration was excellent. First time I’ve listened to either, and I’ll be frantically looking for more. Iggy sounded like the Joker to me in some instances, and it worked lol. She did a great job with Morgan, and her kid voices were spot on.

Don’t hesitate, get this book.

Nearly perfect.

I'll be honest, there's a lot I could have hated about this book and I'm not the biggest fan of contemporary romance novels in general. But dark humor and characters worked so well with each other that I fell in love with the story. It is unbelievably funny.

It is honestly that good. If nothing else, the narrators are what make the story come to life. I don't even think anyone else could have done it. They just are Lorenzo and Scarlet/Morgan.

I will say that the cliffhanger was a bit weird because it didn't really feel like it should have stopped there. Like if there was a chance to combine the books together, then I'd be pretty happy. But I'd still give it a 5-star.

4.5 for me. Very good book!

I love the tortured souls clandestined meeting with smart mouth pickpocket and the cocky mob boss. His team is stupid all except 7. I feel as if someone should have taken Scar out already. He's always by himself and lives in an upscale neighborhood and not in a mansion. no bars, no gates not even a gated community. People can just walk right up to his door (that he doesn't lock or have constantly guarded) and knock. This is weird to me. Besides all of that the story is very spicy with a little sweetness. It feels like Scar is repaying the favor that Nas did for him so many years ago by getting rid of his parents.

Not much suspense, but pleanty of humor

I really liked this series, but they are NOT suspenseful, they are funny. I laughed out loud numerous times. I wonder who is categorizing the books. I often find that they are in the wrong category.
