led a sad existenceLorenzo couldn t keep his distanceIt wasn t easy to read about Morgan fu ing another man I thought it was strangeHow can I explain how that made me feelShe stayed all her life down at heelBut nothing about her impressed meAnd nothing about him was realThey were illusionsHave I said too much Don t cry for meThe truth is I never liked itAll from the first page, till Morgan fucked

lord 2018 you bet your assokay so this story follows morgan and lorenzo lorenzo is a fun loving, mafia boss killing sociopath with a narrative unlike any i ve ever read i genuinely laughed out loudthan once, which i was not expecting for something marketed as a mafia romance morgan is a 21 year old sex worker who has a run in with lorenzo when she pickpockets him at a bar from there we are taken on a character driven journey with some nice plot twists as the icing on the cake.what genuinely surprised me about this was the complete lack of slut shaming, problematic misogyny, or alpha maleness dare i say this book was even sort of feminist morgan is not ashamed of her profession and doesn t want any sympathy for it there s an especially awesome scene that she has with lorenzo where she talks about rape culture and the lack of respect for sex workers that i found fcking bad ass and so so rare in romance, especially a mafia romance.other things i liked the narrative style alternates between lorenzo, morgan, and an unnamed character the attention to characterization and inner dialogue that made the romance convincing seriously why do all mafia romances try to come up with an elaborate shoot em up plot, no one cares lorenzo s humor whoops i already said that didn t i the only thing i didn t love were the sex scenes a tad too plentiful since the banter was off the charts entertaining to me it says a lot about an author s chemistry building when i m like skip the good stuff let me listen to them talk if you kind of roll your eyes at mafia romances or usually avoid darker stuff i d recommend trying this out a genuine stand out in this genre, and a whole lot of fun 3.5 StarsI really enjoyed thisLorenzo is a great character and I really enjoyed him I thought

bored Scarred both physically and emotionally, there is a void in his soul In one surprising encounter, Lorenzo meets his match A mysterious girl with an S tattoo, he will do anything to catch this

they can to keep the boundaries of their heart securely in place Friendship and attraction explode between them and a unique relationship is formed When the evils of Morgan s past threaten to swallow her whole, Lorenzo is there to assemble his troops and seek vengeance I d wreck you for any man that came along after me, put them all to shame, because I d give you exactly what you wanted Told in dual POV, Menace is a perfect blend of romance, passion, action, and intrigue With flashes from the past intertwined with the action of the present, we get a clear view of these characters and the circumstances of their lives JM has always enticed me with her strong heroes, but I must say she truly exceeded all expectation with Lorenzo Additionally, Morgan is a stand out heroine with determination, strength, and paired with Lorenzo they are unstoppable The pacing in this read is upbeat and every single moment is complex and thoroughly developed Lorenzo and Morgan are both smart characters and their witty and sarcastic banter enhanced the dialogue by offering a reprieve from the intense action The supporting characters are critical to the plot and further amplifies the dimension of the story arc While reading Menace, I was completely transported to a dark and dangerous world in which I never want to leave Overall, I highly recommend Menace to any and all J.M Darhower readers or to any dark romance readers or any readers period IT IS JUST THAT GOOD The ending was a definite nail biter and yet, I have complete confidence in this author to carry me through

twist.Sprinkle in some super f cked up secondary characters.Get the beyond amazing JM Darhower to blend it all together with her signature mix of grit and sex.And now, my friend, you got yourself one addicting little cocktail Uhem.If you ve read Target on Our Backs, you re already familiar with Lorenzo and his particular brand of crazy And make no mistake, the man is definitely NUTS I seem to forever exist in a gray area of life, caught in a web somewhere between homicidal and suicidal He s violent, screwed up, borderline sociopath His past demons don t haunt his present because they re probably scared shitless of a man that doesn t fear death Does he have a backstory Absolutely And it s as devastating as it is f cked up Will you be panting for him throughout the entire book even knowing all that Abso freaking lutely He stares at me, not a flicker of emotion showing on his face There s almost something inhuman about it Morgan aka Scarlet was easily my favorite heroine that this author has written to date This is a woman that s running but with a purpose and using any means possible to get what she wants She ll pick pockets, lie, and use her body if she has to She s full of nails and vinegar She s sassy, sarcastic, snarky and everything I love She s broken but not defeated If anything her weakness just make her that much stronger She was a fascinating combination vulnerable and deadly.This is not a story of insta lust or insta anything These two have a rocky start and an explosive continuation And by explosive, I mean that in all sense of the word Holy fuck This man and those hands he doesn t play fair At all He presses buttons he s got no business pressing I loved her internal monologue almost as much as I loved Lorenzo s He curves his fingers, hitting that sweet spot deep inside The unicorn found the fucking Holy Grail.Didn t even need a map.He navigated right there Yeah See what I mean This was told in dual POV and I gobbled it up It was violent and gritty, taking you right into the underbelly of the worst sort of criminal organizations It s sexy with just the right amount of humor mixed it I loved it is what I m trying to tell you here I m already itching for the conclusion ITCHING I tells ya I just think about how fucked up it is to realize that heroes are make believe but monsters are real That s the world we live in There s no knight in shining out there It s just me, trapped in a world filled with fire breathing dragons ARC courtesy of author in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on 4.5 StarsI, Steph, am in love with a gun

until you do you need to get your life right , Lorenzo is a character from Target On Our Backs He s a little testy A little crazy Tell your boss he can suck my cock, I say, shoving my chair back to stand up If he does a good enough job, maybe I won t blow his fucking brains out for calling me a thief And a whole lot of fun to read about Swinging the spatula, he smacks Leo in the head, the loud thwack echoing though the kitchen Shit Leo winces, What the hell was that for The table isn t set, Lorenzo says What are we, animalsthis coming from a man who shot someone in the face with zero hesitation for not listening to an order Am I sick to love him Maybe But I don t care When Menace starts, Lorenzo is basically running the crime scene in New York and bored of the every day crap he deals with Enter Morgan Scarlet She s fiery and feisty and brings some color into Lorenzo s life But she has one hell of a shitty pastI yearn to mean something Do you know what that s like To know you re poison but still be desperate for someone to sip from you anywayAndddd that s all you ll get on the plot from me Don t won t to spoil a single thing about this story.Scarlet is a character who actually took me by surprise I actually wasn t expecting to like her all that much But boy was I wrong She was an incredible, resilient, tough girl and I LOVED her eventhan I thought possible at the end And Lorenzo, well I think I ve made it pretty clear how much I love him He s so muchthan you think he will be Him and Scarlet together were everythingHis lips are the softest thing about him, warm and gentle, like a slice of heaven wrapped in hell, so worth battling the flames to feel his fireYou know what I love about JM s stories As soon as you think you know what s happening or which way the story is going to go, she flips the switch and turns everything on its head and you re left a little speechless And she also creates delicious murderous men who make me want to be a mob wife but that s besides the point.The point is this story is another of hers that has topped my favorites list and book 2 cannot come soon enough I need MORE LORENZO IN MY LIFE Menace is out today Find Me On

somewhere around the middle and I almost DNF d it a couple of times.The hero was not the issue He s exactly the type of hero I love Dark, damaged, scarred, deadly, cold, unapologetic, unpredictable, observant, sarcastic, paradoxically humane Very passionate about his oranges I know, WTF I read in one of the reviews here he didn t leave the impression of being a mature thirty six old man I totally agree Although dark, deadly and dangerous, he was missing that thirty something vibe He seemed a lot younger.The heroine She s a tough cookie, a bit na ve but definitely strong and likable.Their chemistry was okay ish although Lorenzo WAS hot and passionate, no question about it but nothing earth shattering Their connection, on the other hand, was palpable and beliveable I loved their interactions I liked how silently they understood each other They re a perfect match.Overall, a very promising series Although, you should probably take my rating and review with caution I m nursing the mother of all book hangovers so I m not the most reliable person to listen to at the moment {Free Book} ê Menace ⚟ 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 f cking 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 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 4 STARS J.M Darhower delivers yet another imperfect antihero to root for with Lorenzo Gambini The delivery was well paced, the humor, heat, and danger, all well proportioned and adding up to one solid readPeople call me Scar for a reason, and it doesn t entirely have

think my favorite aspect of the story is Lorenzo s comments and reactions to his little brother s girlfriend I got such a kick out of these scenes The cliffhanger ending is doable and I will survive until the conclusion is released on February 6, 2017 I hope all ends well for this unconventional group of charactersI pretty much declared war for you, Scarlet At least if you re sleeping in my bed, I know I m winning
