Fans of Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers and Jessie Keane will be hooked by Fierce Girl.
When loyalty is everything, betrayal hits harder.
Anna Davis has grown up. She’s not the naive runaway who escaped her vicious gangland boyfriend anymore. She’s tougher than ever and she won’t let anyone take advantage of her – or the people she loves.
Anna’s devoted boyfriend, East End baron Freddie Tyler, is in trouble. There’s a rat in his organisation and he needs to stop the leaks before a very big mistake from his past is revealed to people who will want swift and brutal revenge.
Anna wants to help Freddie but she’s got problems of her own. Her best friend Tanya’s mother has turned up, and is staking a claim on Tanya’s share of their club. With Tanya buying her mum’s reformed sinner act, Anna knows she needs to act before both their friendship and Club Anya goes up in flames.
But if there’s one thing Anna and Freddie have learned, it’s how to play the game, and as their enemies close in they’ll fight with everything they’ve got to protect the life they’ve built.
After how the previous book ended in the series, I have been dying to catch back up with Tanya, Anna and Freddie and boy, I wasn’t disappointed!
If I thought things were bad enough for the three main characters in the last book, well the author takes it up another level in Fierce Girl.
Like Anna, I was very dubious at Tanya’s mother turning up after many years playing the perfect mum of which is nothing like the nasty piece of work she was when Tanya was growing up. I did enjoy getting to know more of Tanya’s background though and what sort of life she had endured as a child. I think it makes you understand more the person who she became and is today.
I had to feel so sorry for Freddie. Just as things look like they are getting back to normal he is hit in more ways than one. I have to admit, with one of his issues I couldn’t see anyway out and it had me turning those pages just to see how it was all going to end. I think I read the majority of the novel with my heart in my mouth as I was so on edge.
Fierce Girl is a truly gripping, nail biter of a read that not only gets you on the edge of your seat but keeps knocking you off it! There are some very nasty surprises in store which made for some very tense reading and whilst I was at times scared to read more as I really wasn’t sure how Anna and Freddie were going to deal with their problems, I was compelled to keep on going. A must read for fans of Martina Cole and Casey Kelleher.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
