Review: Canary by Tijan

This story is amazing. I couldn’t put this book down and read it all at once because it’s so intense, I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. I wasn’t sure what to expect because a lot of authors write mafia stories but few do it well, although this is Tijan so I should have known better.

Ash and Raize are everything. Their story is steamy, scary and sometimes sad, but it pulls you in from the first page. Girl/Carrie/Ash’s character is so unique, I was hooked immediately. She’s a total badass and she gets better as the story continues. Her instincts are never off, except that she was wrong about Raize being dead inside. He’s a merciless killer and a force to be reckoned with, but she makes him alive again and their chemistry is off the charts.

The supporting cast is compelling too and I couldn’t get enough of Jake. This story is violent, dark and so, so hot, I truly loved everything about it. This is an excellent twist on organized crime, complete with the mob, Russian gangsters and Mexican cartels. I can honestly say this is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time, and I can’t recommend it enough.

“Canaries sing to save lives. I sing and people die.”

We were on the front lines in that world, the mafia world.

There was nothing soft or glamorous about it.

Who you were before no longer mattered. Names didn’t exist.

I joined anyway. I had no other choice because they took my sister.

Join. Find her. Try and make it out alive.

Then he won me in a poker game.

I hated him instantly, thinking he was like my other bosses before him.

He wasn’t. He was worse.

He wasn’t just cold. He was dead inside.

It didn’t matter that he was gorgeous.

He was the most lethal thing I’d ever met.

He was also the only person who could keep me alive, if he didn’t kill me himself.

Author’s Note: This is a 102k mafia/cartel standalone. This is the most violent book Tijan has ever written. Trigger warning: references to sexual violence.
