A MAFIA FEEL ROMANCE. IT WAS EXCITING
Well, that was exciting, I loved this book, the characters and the anticipation of what was going to happen next all the way through.
Menace had that mafia feel to it although Lorenzo Gambini or Scar as he is called is not a mafia boss, he's not exactly a guy who's on the straight and narrow either, he has his men at the click of his fingertips and Lorenzo is a man other men fear.
Lorenzo is the man with a scar, a crook, a villain but also a loving brother, Lorenzo is a man of layers who firmly keeps the mask on and hides behind the scar.
Morgan or Scarlet as Lorenzo starts to call her due to a letter S on her wrist is a woman with backbone, she's is on the run and works in a club, Morgan is also a woman with many layers, she's strong and resilient, I liked Morgan's character.
Morgan and Lorenzo first meet in a bar and she pickpockets him, he finds her and if it were any other person they would be dead but something about Morgan draws him to her, he is curious and her fiery character he finds refreshing. Morgan stands with her head high were other men would cower, Morgan is different and shows no fear.
The two are thrust together again when Morgan's past comes to find her and Lorenzo takes her under his wing.
Menace is a great story it's exciting, I loved Lorenzo he can be funny without meaning to be and he's so smooth.
I loved how Lorenzo addresses the reader, listening to this on audio it really brought the book to life, even more, when you have a character that also talks to the reader even though it may have been Lorenzo saying something like "I'm not sure what you're laughing at either". Its not much but I loved how JM Darhower has done that.
Menace is a two-part book and like all two-part story's you are just getting all the answers to your questions, things are just getting even more interesting and then it's finished.
Menace is hot with some sizzling scenes, filled with suspense and interesting characters, it has the element of dark and a mafia feel. It was great I loved it.
I am definitely reading book 2 I can't wait to jump into that one, I have it on my kindle unlimited and then I downloaded the audio for £2.99, Bargain.
