Sarah Castille does it again!!! I simply love this new series of hers. Ruin and Revenge is a series following a family of mobsters….er um I mean businessmen. I recommend reading the first book in the series, Nico. You can still follow this book, but you definitely lose something if you haven’t read the first one. Plus its Sarah Castille, you can’t go wrong.
Gabrielle is bent on revenging her husband’s death. Her every action and thought revolves around her husband’s memory and finding those responsible for her husband’s death. During her quest for vengeance, she gets shot which winds her up in the hospital sharing a room with sexy Luca.
Luca has been burned by a woman before. So when he lays eyes on Gabrielle, in a hospital bed no less, he is reluctantly smitten. His pursuit of her is only slightly dampened by the fact she is a police officer and they are on opposite sides of the law.
I really like this book not only because it is written by one of my top fav authors, but also because it has great characters. Luca is deliciously alpha male. He knows exactly what he wants and doesn’t stop until he gets it. Gabrielle is no wilting flower. I can’t stand the whole damsel in distress routine. Women can kick ass just like men and Gabrielle demonstrates that fact. Just like the old adage says, “don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”. Well she does, but she also brings a .22 caliber pistol, a .44, and a taser. She doesn’t allow Luca to pull the ole caveman routine and forces him to see her as his equal.
I love Sarah Castille’s books, so I might be a bit biased when I say this book is great and I recommend the read.
I received this ARC in exchange for a honest review and I am not disappointed. I love the newest installment in the Sinners Tribe series. O.K. so I may be a little biased here because there isn’t a book by Sarah Castille that I haven’t liked. Whatever she puts on paper I instantly adore. This book is no exception.
Zane is VP in the Sinner’s Tribe MC. He’s good at his job and has no regrets, except one….Evie. She is the proverbial “one that got away”. Having grown up with Evie, Zane has loved her for most of his life. She has always been in the back of his mind, never forgotten. Circumstances beyond his control forced Zane to leave Evie many years ago. But fate brings them together once more.
Evie has built a life for herself and her son. She has a successful business and his dating a local biker. That is until Zane walks back in her life. While they both care for each other, is there too much water under the bridge to begin again?
I really enjoyed this book. While this is the third book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. I haven’t read any of the previous books and I was able to follow and keep up with things happening. I highly recommend this book
OH Sarah Castille you have done it again. I can’t help but love everything I have read by this woman. I can say now and truly I am Sarah Castille’s bitch. I will line up to buy whatever she puts to paper and shamelessly beg for an ARC. Which I did. I am little biased since I am such a fan but I will endeavour to give you a honest review.
This newest installment in the Redemption series focuses on Sia, a talented artist and Ray, the P.I. we saw in the previous book. This is the third book in this series and I will say you need to read the other books first. Yes, you may be able to follow it but you will miss some of the significance of these characters. So suck it up buttercup and buy the other books. You will not be disappointed.
I love the way Sarah Castille writes. Her books have a very good flow and move along quickly. The only thing that bothered me was Ray’s patois. He began his sentences in a almost philosophical manner. “A man needs to….” “When a man finds…” All the ” a man” crap got annoying. Speak English!! Also, his vernacular didn’t quite match who he is. He’s not some bumpkin. He is a somewhat educated and well-traveled man. The stunted speech seemed to me as a way to make him seem more basic. Which didn’t work for me. He is somewhat complex and not that simple at all.
These characters have a dark past. Sia has suffered a traumatic event and has since given up a part of who she was once. Ray is equally tortured and has a secret that serves as a big turning point in the book. I found myself liking the characters very much. They were well-written and they developed and evolved nicely. While this book is the third in a series it is a stand alone story and you do get your HEA.
Overall, I gave the book four solid stars and would highly recommend this book and author to anyone.
