{Release Day Blitz and Review} War

Title: War
Author: Isabel Lucero
 Release Date: March 16, 2015


My father was the leader of a protection racket; a criminal group that uses violence to ensure our clients won’t be harmed or robbed, and that their businesses will remain protected. What we do isn’t legal, but it’s the way we’ve lived for many years now.

Memphis Reed—my father—was formidable. He was a man people both respected and feared. He taught me everything he knew, and when he died I was left in charge.

Before his death, a battle was brewing on the streets. Lies were told, deceptions were made, and people were killed. People we thought we knew changed, relationships and friendships were torn apart, and loyalties were questioned. After his death, a full on war is raging, and Roman Rios—a man we now know we can’t trust—wants to move in on our business.

With me now being the leader of nine men, it’s up to me to protect them from Roman and his own crew of ruthless criminals. I’ll do whatever’s necessary to keep my business my own and protect everything my father worked for. Even if I have to go up against Xavier Delgado. Roman’s number two. A man with no heart and a black soul. A man Roman trained to be as vicious and cold-blooded as he is. A man who once upon a time I thought I was in love with.

Yes, I’m a she. My name is Chevelley Reed, and all’s fair in love and war.

From 4pm EST on Monday, March 16

War title was just that, war. Everyone was at…wait for it….WAR. The story was about two mob organizations (but more like street thugs) and within one of the organizations, the Capitan is a woman, who prefers to go by “C” when her real name is Chevelley. He dangerously sexy lead is Xavier (X) is on the other mobs team but there is something about how he is with “C” that makes me think about…well you will have to read it to see.

Quote I liked from C:

Chevelley about X: “They always said the devil was handsome.”

I liked the idea. He is bad but he wants her, she is bad and she wants him, but in theory they cannot be together so it is kind of like the Montague’s and the Capulet’s.  The book had me and then it didn’t and then it did and then it didn’t. All the great parts of the book I was in awe and at the edge of my seat.
The sex was mild. I kind of wanted it to be rawer in the bedroom. Don’t get me wrong there was some but, I wanted more. What can I say; I am a greedy girl.

C is not as strong as I wanted her to be. She runs an organization like a democracy and it is a well organize mess. She lets everyone have input and seems to have feels, I am shivering because I wanted her to be kick ass all the time and not just when she was at War.

This book has sweet, hard, foul-mouth men and women who like drama, fighting, blood and to love. If you like Carter Reed by Tijan or Ruthless People series by J.J. McAvoy, you will enjoy this mob worthy story.

Happy reading.
