I am super excited to share my review with you today for The Family Business by Alex Kane. Which is out now!
Blood’s thicker than water… and they’re not afraid to spill it
Donnie Black. Charming, successful… and utterly terrifying, he rules the Glasgow underworld with an iron fist. Nothing – or no one – will stop him and he’s not afraid to get his hands dirty to grow his fortune.
Layla Black. She’s been married to Donnie for twenty years, enjoying the lavish world he has worked hard to create. But behind the perfect image Layla is crumbling, numbing her pain with alcohol. But Layla doesn’t know the secrets Donnie keeps – and the truth will send her spiralling.
Louise Bellshaw. She’s young, beautiful and innocent. She’s charmed by Donnie’s sweet words, and believes she’s found true love. But Louise doesn’t know her dream man has plans that will turn her life into a nightmare.
As the three collide, no one can predict how family ties will turn to bloodshed. Because you’ll do anything for the ones you love, won’t you?
A dark, twisty and totally gripping thriller set in the heart of Glasgow gangland – fans of Mandasue Heller and Kimberley Chambers won’t be able to put this down
Holy Freaking Hell what a book….
You know what I honestly think that Alex is one of those authors that is at the top when it comes to grit lit. She always tells a story that will have you hooked from start to finish. Full of action and terrifying moments that leave you wanting more. Brilliant characterisation that jump out of the pages and feel so real. You can feel the emotions within the characters. She always delivers a nail biting, gritty story. Just when I thought she couldn’t get any better Alex has totally excelled herself making The Family Business her best book to date.
So we meet bad Boy Donnie Black comes across all charming and nice but that’s just it he’s out for what he can get. Has the story unfolds we learn more and more about him and I literally wanted to knock him out! poor Layla, poor Louise they have no idea. The plot just gets deeper and deeper and without Donnie this book wouldn’t be what it is. It is absolutely flipping awesome….Totally blown me away, I found myself pulled into this this whirlwind of emotions. One minute I am screaming at my kindle then next I am reminding myself to breathe. So many twists and turns…..Love, love, love it.
One word that sums this book up…. phenomenal! Read it and you will see what I mean!
Massive thank you to Zoe for inviting me to take part on this tour.
