“This is what life is all about. This is the place where all of our troubles are put to rest. This is my family. It’s not traditional, but it’s mine, and I will do everything in my power to protect what’s mine. Down to my last breath.”
Dylan Trent is more than just the main drug dealer for the organization known as Fianna Fail. He is also Troy Donovan’s childhood best friend.
Nine months after Marcus’s betrayal, and Callie is still in hiding. The whole of the organization is on the hunt for revenge.
But what happens when a broken girl suffering abuse at the hands of her drug addicted mother and step-father entwines herself in Dylan’s world?
Meet Raven Colt. One girl who holds too many secrets for her eighteen years of age.
As their world collides will they rise above, or shatter under the pressure? Find out in book 2 of the Fianna Fail series.
Dylan is the second book in the Fianna Fail: Soldiers of Destiny and I found this story much easier to follow than book one. Probably due to the fact in book one we meet so many of the Irish Mafia family (Fianna Fail) that it did confuse me somewhat. Having said that I did enjoy book one but loved this to the extreme as I already understood the characters and how the family dynamics were. I knew this story would have Dylan’s romance story but with the backdrop of Mafia action & suspense – S Kline did not disappoint at all.
The first book being Troy I only gave 3 Hearts but Dylan earned the full 5 Hearts – could not put this down. You do need to read Troy before you pick up Dylan as you will not understand some characters and there is storylines that commence in Troy and get resolved/continued in Dylan.
This story is for Dylan as he finds his lady love in Raven, fair warning it is quite an emotional and also harrowing start to this book to explain Raven’s life. The first few chapters of this book gripped me by my throat and along with the character I tried not to wretch with horror and absolute pain. The author has written about a quite sensitive subject really well in that I have had other books touch this and I have put them down and really struggled to continue, not with this book at all. S Kline covered about every emotion with care & compassion but also gave the character extreme strength in that I felt as a reader I was there with Raven during every step of her recovery and acceptance of affection.
We are taken on “family” business, have suspense and some violent scenes thrown in that had me on the edge of my seat. I am now eager to read about Ethan and Trisha as I think their story is actually probably going to be quite emotional.
A really heart warming side story to this book was the love of Raven and Harper’s Uncle Jim, their cousin Trisha and also Dylan’s relationship with his mum.
S Kline gives us characters that really show two sides of humanity, there is no apologising for the crime family that is Fianne Fail but then I love a good romance that also includes the dark side of living life.
