Seven Sons (Gypsy Brothers #1) by Lili St. Germain
4 Jesus H. Roosevelt Christ stars!
So, I’m not normally a big fan of dark romance. To be honest, I’m a giant chicken and it scares the shit out of me the majority of the time. But today I stood in line for twenty minutes to meet this author and listened to so many people gush about how amazing this series was. Having seen it floating around Goodreads peeps as well, I decided to give it a shot. And I am so glad I did! (PS: Sorry to Jasmine and Allison for cheating on the buddy read! Couldn’t help it this was awesome!)
At a very young ago, Julz endured a form of torture that would break most people, and it almost broke her beyond repair. Six years later she is looking for revenge, against the man who wronged her and all of his sons who helped in. Changing her appearance and her identity, she infiltrates the compound where they live. But pretty soon, Julz realizes she may be over her head, but it’s too late to turn back now.
As I said before, dark is not my usual genre but I could not put this book down! I was hooked from the first page. For a 100+ page book, there was some great character development involved that is normally missing from shorter books. Many horrifying things occurred in this book so if you are easily offended this is not the book for you. I was surprised to find it didn’t bother me so much because I was reading along thinking to myself “Get your revenge Julz!!” like a total nerd.
The only thing I had a teeny tiny issue with was how quickly Dornan became obsessed with “Sammi”. It seemed to happen really quickly, but since he’s fuckin crazy it also makes sense.
I’m looking forward to reading the rest of this series and kind of want a redo on meeting Lili St. Germain so I can fangirl properly this time.
