I’m Sterling Sparrow. You’ve no doubt heard my name or read it on the top of tall buildings. There’s more to my business—my realm—than what is seen above ground.
Within the underbelly of one of America’s largest cities lives a world where a man’s word is either his most valuable tool or his most respected weapon. When my father ruled that world and that city, he promised me someone who would one day make my reign complete.
Since that day, long ago, Araneae McCrie has been mine.
She just didn’t know.
My father is now gone.
The city and the underbelly are now mine.
The time has come for me to collect who was promised to me, to shred her life of secrets, and make her who she’s always been—mine.

Characters & Chemistry
We are back in Chicago and things have changed for Kennedy Hawkins/Araneae McCrie is trying to adjust to her life in her golden gilded cage. Her life is planned out for her now. She runs Sinful Threads by day and by night she is the near queen of the underworld of Chicago.
This is what I wrote in book one about our heroine
I really liked Kennedy. She is strong, sassy, and has a backbone of steel however she always puts others over her well-being. There were times where I was screaming at her internally of course I don’t want people to think that I am nuts.
I still like Kennedy/Araneae. She is strong and sassy but I felt as if her backbone of steel was deteriorating fast in this book. I know she is adjusting to her situation but she seems to go along with nearly everything. I was still internally screaming at the woman but all for the sake of protection I felt as if she was giving up a piece of herself bit by bit. On top of that I really cannot see what Sparrow finds so darn appealing about her. Just saying.
This is what I wrote in book one about the hero
There were times I loved Sterling and others where I hated them. He trusted only two people in his life. He wanted what had always belong to him and that promise he made a long time ago. It was a conscious choice that he made. He had his standards, his dominating ways. This pretty much hasn’t changed tbh.
There was more sex in the book here which is alright because it didn’t take away from the overall story but I do wish that instead of bonking their brains out they would have built on a word everybody knows called communication. With these two it was virtually non-existent.
Writing, Plot & Pace
If there is one thing that this author can do, then it is write and I mean write. It was hook, line and sinker for me from the 30% mark onwards although I wasn’t convinced at the beginning. I mean in a way it fells so far-fetched. It is still captivating, I soaked up every moment of this book. There were still emotions and still feels here but not a lot really happens. We know that Araneae is supposed to have some information from 26 years ago but can harm the underworld of Chicago and has all the major players running scared but what kind of evidence?
There are flashbacks to past of Araneae’s birth mother and her birth father and what really happened we as the readers find this out but I mean how the others are going to find that information out.
Still good. Still a cliffhanger. Araneae now has a choice to make. Will she be like her birth mother what is to happen?
