Streetwise was an ok book but it's not something I'll be wanting to read again anytime soon.

Once I got into it this book was enjoyable, the whole taxonomy thing creeped me out though.

I loved Silver, she was intriguing, a unique character and her relationship with Danny was just as interesting. Eva and Chris were okay but I wanted to see more development between the pair. Now I think about it, none of the characters were likable in a good way, if that makes sense.

I loved three quarters of this book. Very much like Martina Cole, Jessie Keane etc but without the graphic violence. Unfortunately, I had to give up on it. It got WAY too confusing to the point where I couldn't follow all the leads and names and new characters and plots. I just got very, very lost which is a shame as I was enjoying the plot until the confusion kicked in. I found myself having to concentrate so hard to follow at one point. If you like that sort of thing, I absolutely recommend.

This is the first book I've read of Roberta Kray. Due to her connection with the Krays I thought there would have been some East End gangland violence and there wasn't so a little bit disappointed. I did finish the book. The story was ok but not quite the page turner I thought it'd be and somewhat tame for my liking. I'm now reading Strong Women also written by Roberta Kray to see how this one pans out.

Another brilliant read. Some of my favorite characters from previous books and some new ones too. Same old haunts but not the same old story. A good way of showing that even a white lie can cause a heap load of trouble. Have to get the rest of her books one of my new favourite authors.

Nice easy read

Easy to pick up and put down. Story line with romance and ganglords....probably could of gone further with the romance part.
