Sparrow is thrown into a marriage with a man who has ignored her for most of her life. She has no idea why and no one is giving her answers. I loved how Sparrow dealt with her situation. She is strong, stubborn, and feisty. She is determined not to lose herself and is constantly challenging her new husband, Troy.
She wasn't a woman who cared for superficial shit, someone who was motivated by the wrong things. She was a blank, clean, white sheet for me to scribble on.
And I scribbled.
Troy, oh Troy. What a hard-headed, frustrating, stubborn, infuriating man! He is scary and makes grown men cower. Troy is dangerous. Everybody recognizes him and the power he holds. The only one to yell, push, and argue with him is his 5'3" wife, Sparrow.
Troy Brennan was the devil, but sometimes, even good girls wanted a healthy dose of evil in their lives.
They are an interesting married couple. I love their angry banter. I love how their relationship developed. I love how much Troy developed and changed, with Sparrow anyway.
Troy was the guy who not only broke your headboard, but also broke your heart.
The angst is perfect. The secondary characters, Brock and Catalina, just add to the feels of this book. Sam is adorable!
"Is it possible to feel your heart breaking, even when you're falling in love?"
I refused to put this book down! I read it in one sitting. The ending was perfect and had me swooning over Troy and wanting to be one of Sparrow's best friends.
He gave me lies, and I ate them from the palm of his hand.
He gave me lies, and for him, I closed my eyes.
This is a standalone and does contain both Sparrow's and Troy's POV.
I highly recommend one-clicking this amazing book!!
