Published: 29 October 2020
Fans of Kimberley Chambers’ Queenie and Martina Cole will love this unputdownable crime thriller from bestselling crime author Emma Tallon.
Sometimes revenge is the only option.
Anna Davies is young, smart and successful, plus she’s the head of one of London’s biggest crime networks. She’s seen off her abusive ex-boyfriend and cut her teeth managing clubs around London’s West End. But nothing could have prepared her for what’s around the corner…
Beautiful, rich and powerful, Sophia Ivanov has been sniffing around Anna’s business empire and she’s got only one thing on her mind – revenge. She’s convinced Anna and her gangster boyfriend, Freddie Tyler, killed her Russian crime boss husband, Alexis, and she’s determined to make them pay.
When Sophia turns up at their club one night, it’s clear she’s not there for a friendly visit and tensions begin to flare. Anna knows Sophia is a danger to their business, but she doesn’t realise how much until Freddie finds himself in unthinkable danger. Can Anna and Freddie get rid of Sophia once and for all… and what will be left when the fighting stops?
This is book 7 actually and the last in the Tyler family series. It stopped from where book 6 stopped, the gang recuperating from their last attack with the Russians.
It can be read as a standalone as well.
The book begins with a prologue, giving a feel of what to expect. From there we can visualise the family’s lifestyle, their confidence and love for each other. There are too many characters in this book. One of the main ones I love is Freddie. He’s a no-nonsense guy, smart and a total badass. Just like his wife, Anna. They make a perfect duo. After coming out of prisión, their relationship hasn’t been the best, especially now that Anna has delved into the business more. But their love for each other is obviously stronger than any obstacle they face.
Aside from his Ruthless Gangster ways, he’s also loving and caring especially to his family.
In this installment, we see more traitors, betrayals and shocking twists. There’s a lot of violence, crimes, drugs, and a lot of the dark sides in the Mafia world.
It’s really fast paced, with each chapter showing a different character, each with their problems. The many characters could prove a challenge at times, and it was after a few chapters that I properly understood who was who.
It was quite emotional towards the end too, I guess I’ve fallen in love with them😍
The author has created a strong storyline, and who knows, there might be a new book in the Tyler Family Series. Never Say Never.
