★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Reviewed by Klaire Sutherland on behalf of KFF

 The title of this book perfectly sums up this last instalment of Jude and Tor. The authors bring it up a notch and takes the reader on a journey of blood, death and destruction from the get go. There’s no other way for Jude and Tor to take back what is rightfully theirs other than raze the cartel to the ground. If you are squeamish, then War is not for you. If you are planning to read this while eating, I would suggest you don’t. Find yourself a nice quiet corner and get stuck in because once you start in with book 4, it’s a little difficult to put the book down. You are dragged from page to bloody page as you navigate the impossible with both Jude and Tor.

Tor comes into her own again in War. She stands up and becomes the fierce mother we all know she is, this time with a little more fire in her belly. It’s all for her daughter. Everything she does, she does it for her. I think she even surprises herself at the depths she goes to. There’s only one thing she stumbles over, which ultimately becomes the beginning of the end and sets in motion a chain of events even she can’t walk away from. Jude is right by her side despite the grievances they share. This couple has that kind of love that is unbreakable and War reinforces their relationship. Make or break, live or die – they both sacrifice for their daughter.

But Jude is a clever, clever man. He may only be a bookie but he’s never to be underestimated. This man has blood on his hands and has no qualms in collecting more. His focus becomes his grit, he is trying to save his women. A difficult task when one of them is hell bent on throwing spanners at every opportunity. Gabe is a worthy secondary character who plays a big part in the unfolding story, I loved his ways and his quips. For a grumpy man, he was certainly endearing.

There are so many emotions wrapped up in this story, and I think for me the last book, Wire, perhaps lacked this. But in War it’s there in spades. There are so many emotional scenes that it sometimes takes your breath away, a welcome reprieve from the bloodshed, still cutting all the same. Jude’s anger morphs into something more potent in this book, we feel betrayal, love, friendship – a myriad of heartfelt emotions knock the reader for six. Throw in the fact that the main theme of this book is revenge and you can imagine the tangle the reader ends up in. I found myself a time or two with a lump in my throat as I read of two parents and their child. It compels the reader to root for both Jude and Tor despite the way they go about it. A parent’s love knows no bounds.

Again, the author’s writing is engaging and their scene setting is on point. I couldn’t tell one author from the other, which I think is crucial when co-authoring, makes for a seamless read. Stevie J Cole and LP Lovell have built a vivid world of cartel gangs and undying relationships, stamped their authority all over this genre and give readers what they are looking for with this kind of storyline. I saw one repetitive phrase which stood out for me, maybe others won’t notice but it was there nonetheless and the only thing I would grumble over, otherwise…fantastic.

Perfect ending to the story of the bookie and his love. It needs to be left there, no more Jude and Tor for their story has been told, and told well. If you’re looking for something exciting, something raw and gritty, a beautiful love story then look no further than this series of books. All four are enjoyable and riveting and will take you on the ultimate dark ride. Recommended reading if you like your stuff on the dark and bloody side. Buckle up, you need seatbelts for this one.

                                    SNEAK PEEK                                                 DRUNK DIAL by PENELOPE WARD

We are excited to bring you a sneak peek of author Penelope Ward’s upcoming standalone, DRUNK DIAL releasing 21st August!

Cover designer: Letitia Hasser, RBA designs

Cover Model: Vadim Ivanov

Cover Photography: Kevin Roldan

 

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I’d never been able to forget—even though he so easily forgot about me—and call him.

Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you’ve had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless, prank call. Instead, I went off on him—unloading thirteen years of pent-up emotions.

I didn’t think he’d call me back.

I certainly could never have anticipated the weeks of sexually tense phone conversations that followed as I got to know the man he’d become.

Turned out, Landon had never really forgotten me, either. That special connection we had was still there. I opened up to him, but there were also things about me he didn’t know. And he had his own secrets.

Over the countless hours we talked on the phone, I wondered what would happen if we actually saw each other. One night, I did something impulsive again. Only this time, I went to the airport and booked a ticket to California. We were about to find out if one phone call could bring two lost souls together or if my drunk dial really was all just a big mistake.

A complete STANDALONE.

By Penelope Ward

After that evening, I hadn’t heard back from him for a few days.

Then, one night, a text came in from the same phone number I recognized as Landon’s. It was the first time he’d texted me.

I looked down to find he’d sent a photo.

I gasped.

It was a heavily tatted man set against the backdrop of the ocean at sunset. Oh, my. It was him—a selfie.

Fuck. Me. He was beautiful.

I wouldn’t have even known it was Landon were it not for the blue eyes I recognized instantly. The shaggy, caramel hair I remembered from the past was now a darker shade of brown and shorter, cropped closer to his head. His arms and his chest were inked, his body so perfect that if I squinted, it almost resembled carved stone.

I couldn’t stop looking at him. My eyes wanted nothing more than to explore the ridges and valleys of his stunning body.

Was this a cruel joke?

This was not Landon!

But, it was.

With my thumb and middle finger, I kept zooming in and out, examining the details of the ink across his chest and on his arms. There was really nothing sexier than a guy with perfect arms and a full sleeve tattoo.

Even though his lips seemed fuller than I recalled, they still curved into a familiar grin that oozed confidence. The eyes and that smile were the only traces of the boy I remembered. I wished I could’ve leapt through the screen to smell him, touch him.

“Hi, Landon,” I whispered, for a brief moment talking to the boy inside, not the man in front of me.

This Landon was the polar opposite of the Ivy League yuppie image previously in my head. The only thing the man pictured might have majored in was badassery. He looked like a rockstar, a rule breaker, displaying a sense of arousing danger—someone who must have had women from all walks of life drooling over him for the sheer fact that either they couldn’t have him or shouldn’t have him. It suddenly became clear why, as he’d alluded to, a woman might have been begging him for sex. That made me wonder if he had any secret tattoos in spots I wasn’t allowed to see.

God.

A fire was burning inside of me, and I knew it was my crush exploding into a full-blown obsession.

A self-conscious feeling came over me. If I was scared to show him a picture of myself before, now I was really hesitant.

The message that went along with the photo simply read:

Now show me you.
