Reign (Henchmen MC, #1) by Jessica Gadziala

Tuesday, July 19
My rating:
5 Stars…
What I loved:

1 notorious 1%er
1 innocent trapped in an impossible situation
1 vicious crime lord
3 people who aren't who they appear to be
= one big (bloody) mess.

Reign is no stranger to the criminal underbelly and hard life, but when a random woman comes (literally) crashing into his life- learning things she has no business knowing, and bringing with her the weight of the city's biggest skin trader- the "hard life" starts to take on a whole new meaning.


I'm experiencing some pretty extreme fangirl anxiety now that I've finished the Henchmen and Savage series.

What I loved:

- Each book in this series definitely works as a standalone. I know this because Reign is the first in the series, and I read it last. I also read the others in no particular order, and still thoroughly enjoyed every part of the story. There was enough overlap to tie the characters together, but enough going on in each character's life to keep the same situation fresh and interesting from a new perspective.
- Reign. What a delicious character! Loved that he was also a lot more vocal than the other leading men when it comes down to the dirty dirty.
- The underlying gender equality that comes across in everything Jessica Gadziala writes. This has probably become my favourite part of picking up one of her books. Her female characters are strong. They have skills. They are articulate, intelligent, quirky and fun to read about. I've read a lot of books in this genre and I'm critical of most heroines - there's a fine line between being outspoken, and just downright being a bitchy shrew. Being independent, and being a ball-busting man hater. Being strong, and being so stubborn as to deserve whatever sorry situation she finds herself in. JG not only finds that line, she stays well on the sunny side of it.
- The plot, the characters, the twists, the sexy times, all of it.

What I didn’t love:

- There are only so many times I can the word viscous without losing my mind over it. Even the synopsis posted on GR for this book used that word (until it became too much and librarian status became my friend). Vicious... the word is vicious: deliberately cruel or violent. Not viscous: thick or sticky consistency.

Loved it. Loved everything about it, except the aforementioned misspelling.
