You’ll do anything to save your family, even kill for them…
Anna Davis is under pressure. With her West End nightclub packed full every night and the opening of another club just around the corner, she knows she can’t take her eye off the ball.
Her boyfriend Freddie Tyler practically owns London’s West End and he’s got a big deal on – one that could make the Tylers the most powerful family in London. He’s going into business with crime boss Frank Gambino. But visiting Anna at work one night, Gambino tells her he’ll only sign the deal with Freddie on one condition – that she hands over Club Anya to him.
With tension growing between Anna and Freddie, her mind is on other things. She doesn’t notice that someone is watching her every move. She doesn’t realise just how much danger she’s in.
When one night she doesn’t return home, Freddie is beside himself with worry. And as he races to save Anna, one thing is for sure – he’ll get back the girl he loves. Even if it means taking down the whole of the London underworld to find her…
‘Boss Girl’ is the third book written by Emma Tallon that I have had the distinct pleasure of reading and reviewing. I thought her first two books were good but I enjoyed this new book even more. As you can tell, I absolutely loved it, (even if it did at times scare the doo doo out of me) but more about that in a bit.
One of the main characters is called Anna. Anna is currently in a relationship with Freddie, who is one of the big crime bosses. Anna lets Freddie get on with his stuff, whilst she gets on with her own stuff. Anna and her friend have already opened one club but they have recently acquired, renovated and established a new comedy club. However it soon emerges that this new club leads to more complications than Anna could have ever imagined, which may have far reaching consequences for Freddie and his businesses. Anna certainly has a dilemma on her hands Anna is feisty, determined, ruthless, stubborn, a hard nut with more balls than any man could ever possibly hope to have if that makes sense? What will Anna choose to do? Do her actions put herself and Freddie in any danger? Will Freddie ride to the rescue? Well for the answers to those questions and more you are just going to have to read the book for yourselves to find out as I am not going to tell you.
OMG, ‘Boss Girl’ is one of those superb books that had the power to keep me gripped, keep me on the edge of my seat and at the same time it scared the crap out of me. I tell you, if this book is any indication of what the real criminal underworld is like then I don’t want any of it and I am quite content to just read about it thank you very much. I know I am just a wimp!! I loved the way in which Emma has created characters who are not only believable and authentic but likeable to boot. I loved the character of Anna, who I think is the one who wears the trousers in her relationship with Freddie.
The author has one of the those writing styles that grabs your attention from the start and you feel compelled to continue reading. That’s what happened to me. I am a bit of a nosy mare and I just had to read on to find out what happened and to whom. Reading ‘Boss Girl’ certainly became addictive. I was extremely reluctant to put the book down and at times it almost had to be prised out of my hands. The book wasn’t exactly glued to my hands but it might as well have been because it accompanied me everywhere. The more of the book I read ,the further I got into the story and the more I had to continue reading because I was desperate to find out how things ended.
Reading ‘Boss Girl’ was much like being on a rather scary and unpredictable rollercoaster ride with lots of twists and turns along the way. There were times where I almost had to read through my fingers because I feared what was going to happen next.
In short, Emma Tallon has raised the bar and then some. ‘Boss Girl’ is easily my favourite book of hers to date. Her books just get better and better. I can’t wait to read what she comes up with next. I would definitely recommend this author and her books to other readers. The score on the Ginger Book Geek board is a very well deserved 5* out of 5*.
