I named myself. I took the word Animal out of their mouths, wore it like a badge of honor then shoved it down their throats. I’ve fought for what I have. I see you coming, before you even know you want a piece of me. In a city riddled with warring families, I’ll rise up between them. My people, the broken souls I gather will have power by the time I’m done with them.
I protect mine.
Him. My brother, Nix.
Her. The girl that is the only home I’ve ever had. She knows me.
I’m coming at you, Sweetness. Stay ready.
Havoc is the first book I’ve read by this author since 2012. I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to read another book by this author because I remember loving her book,Poughkeepsie. When a friend suggested I read this book I didn’t hesitate.
Even though this book is supposed to be a standalone I went ahead and read some friends reviews of the previous book (Mercy) because the characters are in both books. It helped me get the backstory on them.
I’m a reader who likes my characters to be together and unfortunately, for me, that wasn’t the case for the majority of the book. The hero didn’t view the heroine as a love interest but more as a family member (like a sister). Also, I wasn’t a fan of reading a detailed sexual escapade he had with someone who was considered the enemy. Overall, I found I just couldn’t connect with the characters or get behind the journey these characters took to gain their love story.
Havoc is a standalone that exist in the same world as Mercy. This is a story of two people who had a hard start in life. One was in foster care and the other was basically homeless. Their childhood friendship held them together into adulthood where life became even messier for them.
