Series: Love & Chaos #1
Author: WS Greer
Genre: Dark Romance/Thriller
Release Date: February 5, 2018
People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.
Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I’m anything but weak.
My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love.
I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want.
I’m infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy–the underboss of the Philadelphia mob.
It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now.
Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.
This is the first book I have read by this author but it certainly will not be the last. The plot was not what I expected and not what I usually read but it pulled me in and had me hooked from cover to cover.
The plot was full of twists and turns and some parts had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I will warn you that this book has some violent parts so just keep that in mind when you begin the book.
The main characters name was Solomon and I don’t even know where to begin. He had a rough childhood and I guess growing up in the projects made him hard but holy cow he had a violent side that was ruthless. I felt sorry for Solomon and It made sense that he was the way he was because of all the horrible things he had to endure from such a young age. His relationship with his friend Nix was unique and true. Reina was the girl he became involved with and the way their relationship built was perfect. The author did a good job at making that relationship realistic. The author done her research on poverty and gangs and what it would be like growing up with nothing. I loved the way she wrote the main character Solomon. The things he said made you stop and think and you certainly could sympathize with him too. The book was just well written.
“I stop walking and face the blonde-hair, blue-eyed, adorable, beautiful, annoying little monster.”
The book flowed really well and the story even though had some pretty gory parts had me hooked and waiting to see how things were going to turn out. I don’t want to give away any of the plot but I will say the title is very fitting.
Even though this isn’t my usual genre I really enjoyed this book and certainly would read more books written by this author.
