Firstly I wish to thank Anne Cater of Random Things Tours for inviting me to take part on this Blog Tour for FEARLESS by Jessie Keane
Play dirty, play to win.
Josh Flynn is the king of the bare-knuckle gypsy fighters. His reputation is un-blemished; his fist a deadly weapon.
Claire Milo has always loved Josh, they were destined to be together from the day they met. Two gypsy lovers with their whole lives ahead of them. If only Josh would find a different way of earning a living instead of knocking the living daylights out of another man in the boxing ring. One day, she knew something really bad was going to happen. She could feel it . . .
Shauna Everett always wanted what she couldn’t have, and nobody, especially Claire Milo was going to stand in her way. She’s had her eye on Josh Flynn for years and she knew just how to get him. If it meant playing dirty, then so be it. What had she got to lose?
In a world ruled by violence, crime and backstreet brawls, only one woman will win in Jessie Keane’s Fearless, but how low is she prepared to go to achieve that goal?
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
I was truly delighted to find that this book was a stand alone read, although it is sectioned into 3 books with chapters in each of these sections making it above your standard size of novel, but wow does it pack a punch and like one of the main characters, bare knuckle fighter Josh. It was truly unbeatable!
I loved how I got to dip my toes into the gypsy camp site be it only in small doses, where old traditions had not completely died out. These people had pride and rules within their community, even if they were nothing like the outsiders. In the camps you sorted out your own troubles, be it a body from a bare knuckle fight that had gone wrong, to a couple of young women with their eye on the same bloke.
Shauna Everett was one crazy lady that would stop at nothing to get her own way. I have to admit to feeling some sympathy for her as I really do believe that this nut case did love Josh. She makes this story a belter with her wheeling, dealing and ruthless determination. A lady with no conscience just an end to a means. Claire is her opposite, a young woman that radiates innocence itself. Both beautiful women in love with Josh who is at times naive. He is a bit of a put his head in the sand kind of guy so things happen and he just goes along with it all.
I thought Shauna was bad but bloody hell the Cleavers are a real bunch of scary weirdos. Brutal, but not as stupid as Shauna thinks. Whoa there are some cracking scenes with these guys that make you just want to curl up and become invisible but they just made me feel like they could still crawl off the pages at any minute. Well the pay load had arrived and the boys wanted to jump on the band wagon.
What a superb story this is that spans from 1975 to present day. An epic journey of love loss and obsession!
