Once upon a time, there was a guy who got so fed up with life that he resorted to murder and mayhem just to feel alive.
Lorenzo Gambini is bored. So fucking bored. Most people either annoy him or avoid him, afraid to face him. Figuratively. Literally. With his face partially disfigured, scarred, he looks every bit the monster the stories make him out to be: the notorious menace they call Scar. They say he's a sociopath. Maybe he's a psychopath. Whatever path he's on, people tend to stay far away from it.
Until one day, a young woman bumps right into him--a woman just as fed up with life, but for much different reasons. With a Scarlet Letter inked on her wrist and secrets buried deep in her soul, Morgan Myers is running from something... or maybe somebody. Lorenzo isn't quite sure.
You can bet your ass he's going to figure it out, though.
Read Menace today! ❤
Well that was exciting, I loved this book, the characters and the anticipation of what was going to happen next all the way through.
Menace had that mafia feel to it although Lorenzo Gambini or Scar as he is called is not a mafia boss, he's not exactly a guy who's on the straight and narrow either, he has his men at the click of his fingertips and Lorenzo is a man other men fear.
Lorenzo is the man with a scar, a crook, a villain but also a loving brother, Lorenzo is a man of layers who firmly keeps the mask on and hides behind the scar.
Morgan or Scarlet as Lorenzo starts to call her due to a letter S on her wrist is a woman with back bone, she's is on the run and works in a club, Morgan is also a woman with many layers, she's strong and resilient, I liked Morgan's character.
Morgan and Lorenzo first meet in a bar and she pickpockets him, he finds her and if it were any other person they would be dead but something about Morgan draws him to her, he is curious and her fiery character he finds refreshing. Morgan stands with her head high were other men would cower, Morgan is different and shows no fear.
The two are thrust together again when Morgan's past comes to find her and Lorenzo takes her under his wing.
Menace is a great story, its exciting, I loved Lorenzo he can be funny without meaning to be and he's so smooth.
I loved how Lorenzo addresses the reader, listening this on audio it really brought the book to life even more when you have a character that also talks to the reader even though it may have been Lorenzo saying something like "I'm not sure what your laughing at either". Its not much buT I loved how JM Darhower has done that.
Menace is a two part book and like all two part story's you are just getting all the answers to your questions, things are just getting even more interesting and then its finished.
Menace is hot with some sizzling scenes, filled with suspense and interesting characters, it has the element of dark and a mafia feel. It was great I loved it.
I am definitely reading book 2 I can't wait to jump into that one, I have it in my kindle unlimited and then I downloaded the audio for £2.99, Bargain.
J.M Darhower was new to me this ear and I'm getting hooked to her writing.
