Shark Santoyo Crime Series
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Seventeen-year-old Peregrine Hays has a boyfriend, a 3.8 grade point average and a double life as her high-school’s resident “fixer.” From the creepy ex who won’t leave a girl alone to blackmail sexts, Peri can help. But when Peri finds herself facing down Tall Jimmy, the local drug dealer, her only solution leads straight to the gorgeous, deadly, and way out of her league, Shark Santoyo.
Twenty-something Shark has a prison-earned college degree, a rap sheet a mile long, and a job working as an enforcer for The Organization. But when Geier, his mob boss, sends him to the suburbs to find out who’s been skimming the take, Shark realizes he’s going to need more than his gun and an attitude to succeed. He’ll need Peri, the mysterious teen with the fast mouth and faster knife.
With the clock ticking, will Peri and Shark be able to walk the knife’s edge between instinct and attraction, to not only succeed, but to survive?
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was unexpected in the best possible way. It’s gritty and a bit hardcore but has good bits of humor and lightness mixed in. Shark is an anti hero I suppose you’d call it. He’s a bad boy who I couldn’t help but really like. He hides his intelligence and humor well, he’s a bit of a chameleon and he knows how to play the crime game well. Peri is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. Complex and wise beyond her years. She and shark make quite the pair. Very wrong age wise for them to be together and yet I love their dynamic and really hope they get a chance. Whole lot of action packed fun and a great twist at the end!
