    VICE CITY - Debut Release (6/20/17) - Release Day Reviews!

    Hello everyone!

    My debut novel, Vice City, has just been released and I'm excited to share it with you all! Check out these awesome reviews, have a glance at the blurb, and stick around for the party! (And by party, I mean I'm excited enough for five parties, but they're all in my imagination)

    “To say the characterization was good would be like saying I love reading. It’s a gross understatement… Overall, I loved every inch of it.”

    Divine Magazine

    “As a lover of noir and crime fiction, I highly recommend this first book in what will hopefully be a very long and satisfying series.”

    The Novel Approach Reviews


    “I am a sucker for a hard hearted fella finding and fighting for love. Especially when help comes from so many unexpected sides.”

    Jesse G Books


    “This was a super intense, high energy story that kept me on the edge of my seat. I was definitely not ready to be finished with this world or these characters and can’t wait for the next installment.”

    Love Bytes Reviews

    "If you like super intense stories full of very realistic violence and brutality of all kinds, if you want to see how two men fight their pasts, fate, and cruel enemies to be free of others telling them what to do, and if you’re looking for a thrilling mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat, then you will probably like this novel."

    - Rainbow Book Reviews

    BLURB

    After twenty years as an enforcer for the Vice family mob, Nicholas Pierce shouldn’t bat an eye at seeing a guy get worked over and tossed in the river. But there’s something about the suspected police mole, Miles, that has Pierce second-guessing himself. The kid is just trying to look out for his brother any way he knows how, and the altruistic motive sparks an uncharacteristic act of mercy that involves Pierce taking Miles under his wing.

    Miles wants to repay Pierce for saving his life. Pierce shouldn’t see him as anything but a convenient hookup… and he sure as hell shouldn’t get involved in Miles’s doomed quest to get his brother out of a rival street gang. He shouldn’t do a lot of things, but life on the streets isn’t about following the rules. Besides, he’s sick of being abused by the Vice family, especially Mr. Vice and his power-hungry goon of a son, who treats his underlings like playthings.

    So Pierce does the absolute last thing he should do if he wants to keep breathing—he leaves the Vice family in the middle of a turf war.

    WHERE TO FIND IT

    Amazon
    Barnes & Noble
    Google Play
    Kobo
    DSP Publications

    I hope you guys enjoy underworld crime thrillers (with some m/m romance on the side) and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! :3

    [UPDATE - 9/27/17] Check out this video review by Christina's Bookshelf!
