SYNOPSIS

Fix Marcosa is at war.

The battlefield: New York City.

He knows every street like the back of his hand. The darkened alleyways and back streets conceal secrets only he knows.

Somewhere out there, an unknown element is threatening the life of the woman he loves.

Fix doesn’t mind shedding a little blood to get protect those close to him, though.

He doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty.

And when he goes to war…he sure as hell doesn’t lose.

Sera Lafferty knows what it’s like to run.

She’s been running her whole damn life.

With death now looming over her, it seems as though she must run again if she wants to survive.

The dark, storm-kissed stranger she met in a motel room offers another solution, however.

Fix is a challenge. An enigma. A savage force of nature. He will be her shield against the coming darkness, if only she will let him.

But can she trust the tortured ex-priest to keep her safe?

Should she run from New York as fast as possible?

Or should she stand and fight?


REVIEW

You can also read this review on Goodreads!

Without doubt, Callie Hart is my queen of anything dark romance. She writes delicious, devilishly handsome anti-heroes and admirable, sassy heroines. She weaves in many twists and turns to create a seeming innocent but actually an intricate and intriguing devious plot.

Freaks concludes the angst ridden and suspense filled romance of Felix ‘Fix’ Marcosa, an assassin and Seraphim ‘Sera’ Lafferty, the woman Fix was commissioned to murder.

I call her my angel, because she brings me back from the edge. She reminds me I’m not entirely lost.

Sera is in danger. Someone wants her killed. And the burning question is, “Who?”. What could an innocent woman who has trudged through some of life’s darkest moments have done to warrant such hatred?

Fix doesn’t know where to begin. Everyone around him appears to be keeping secrets and disguising personal agendas. No one has answers to anything.

“…I walked the road to hell, and I lived there for a time, but I’m not going to be another broken girl you have to take care of. You’re a fixer. But you don’t need to fix me.”

Ms Hart does an amazing effort to provide answers to questions readers had after the infamous ending of Dirty, tying up loose ends and seamlessly blending narrative into series together. She does this with ease and finesse only a writer confident in themselves and their writing could achieve.

Dirty Nasty Freaks is the perfect combination of intense grit, scorching scenes and teeth gritting action.
