4.5 explosive stars!!! “I’m a hurricane,” I whisper. “Death follows me everywhere.”
His eyes flicker over my face, from my eyes to my nose, lingering on my lips. “That’s what I like about you,” he breathes.

My introduction to S. Massery’s books started off with a bang with Blood Sky! Nonstop action from the first to the very last page! I loved the author’s writing and her different spin on the mafia genre. Delia’s family has been killed by the enemy and this is her story of revenge. She meets

Explosive action and sizzling chemistry from page one!

What a talented writer this new-to-the-scene author is! That was one of my first thoughts as I read Blood Sky. Sara Massery certainly has a big future ahead of her.

I was hooked from the first page, and completely drawn into the dark secrets of Delia and Jackson’s world’s. If you love a side of action and mafia style suspense with your romance, this is one series you’ll want to start today!

Hold onto your hats, this was an intense and wild ride.

I love when a book starts with action and this one delivered. It also kept up with that momentum throughout the whole book. Jackson and Delia, two unlikely characters, two totally different backgrounds, both a little rough around the edges and completely bada$$.

Delia was escaping or trying to anyway. She's been running for weeks and at every turn, trouble follows. Although this time the unexpected trouble is in the form of an

Blood Sky by S. Massery was just what I was looking for.

I love the way Massery weaves this storyline and characters all together, leaving you wondering what’s going to happen next, and still having moments that completely surprise you.

Delia is one tough lady! I love her character. And Jackson is definitely one man who can help her face what’s coming after her.

Blood Sky reminds us all that sometimes friends are more than family.

Oh my dayz. What a story! I literally sat and inhaled this story. I loved every minute of it.

Jackson and Delia. Crikey what a pair. They sure did put me through the wringer as I didn’t know what way the story was going to go.

Fantastic secondary characters who I’m really hoping they all get their own stories as those men are hot!

I love that the story is told through two points of view as I really wanted to get into both their heads.

That ending. Yikes. I’m so looking forward to reading more.

This is the first in a series for this author. I was very impressed with the writing of this new to me author. The story was full of action and suspense with some hot steamy moments thrown in.

Delia and Jackson meet by chance and become ties together because of the danger that is following Delia. This book happens to center on Delia's mafia roots but the series looks like it will be following Jackson's mercenary friends. I can't wait for more of them. Dalton, Griffen, Zach and Mason are

I don't even know where to start with this review. Blood Sky was everything I didn't know I needed and more. It was nonstop action from the first page to the last and is so different from all the other books out there.

Delia is without a doubt one of the strongest female characters I have read. To survive what she did - even though she had help along the way - is still pretty amazing.

And Jackson, I just love him. He's so strong, smart, and intuitive. I know he learned a lot from his time in the

The beginning was a page turner and the end was action packed.
I liked the h -Delia. She is strong with a mafia background and she leans on the H when needed.
I didn’t connect as much with the H -Jackson.
Jackson has a group of “brothers” that he met while working for a black ops group. I believe each may have their own book and I may connect with those characters more. Look forward to the next.

This is the first book in the Broken Mercenaries series and I would guess that there will be at least 5 books (maybe 6) in the series each featuring one of the guys introduced in this book. I was drawn in from the start and the fast-paced action and suspense elements kept me turning the pages.

Delia and Jackson meet by chance when her home is in the path of a wildfire. He gets her out, but it turns out that she has more problems than just mother nature on her heals. To keep her safe, he takes

I really liked this book! It was definitely a refreshing take on the normal Mafia reads in which the person in the Mafia is our leading lady is she is the freaking boss and the guy is outside of the life and no ties with her or them. It was engaging and captivating from the characters to the story line and I highly recommend checking it out!

Delia knows that her life is unconditional, being that she is the heir the mafia has shown her that. After on the run, she meets Jackson who helps her out of

Delia was on the run, grieving, and was desperately trying to survive. When ex-military Firefighter Jackson found her attached to his back with a knife to his neck as he searched an abandoned house, it was the kick start to a fast and furious flight together.
This well written contemporary mafia based romance had all the elements of a great story.
Handsome hulky alpha male fighter, check. Damsel in distress with mafia ties and secrets, check. Chemistry and Passion, check, check, check.
All that

This story had me hooked since chapter 1 and did not stop till the end.
I loved the way Delia was so strong and probably one of the strongest female characters I've read.
Jackson and Delia have a really big connection and they have each others back.
I really enjoyed all the other characters that I cannot wait to hear from again.
This is my 1st read from this author and it will definitely not be the last. I cannot wait on Griffin's - Angel of death story.

I was completely hooked on this story within reading the first few pages! It’s a well written, quick-paced ride full of action and adventure with plenty of suspense, danger, conflict, violence, intrigue and treachery. It’s also a very compelling tale featuring engaging characters with deep, dark secrets. I loved Delia’s character! She’s outwardly cool, calculating, fierce, sassy, determined, and resourceful. Her mafia Daddy sure taught her well! Jackson is no slouch either in the badass ...more

Strong heroine

I enjoyed this book from start to finish I was on the edge of my seat. I liked all of the characters and I think the guys are all getting their own stories. I loved that the heroine was a force to be reckoned with on her own. I would have liked more on Jackson but I still enjoyed this book.

Dalia, alone and one the run to stay alive, meets a fire rescuer, Jackson. Dalia....Jackson, two names you won't get tired of hearing. They both have secrets of their past. He stops at nothing to keep her safe, even though he doesn't know her or anything about her. Dalia is more fierce then she looks. Jackson, well he's trying to live an honest life, but packs a powerful punch.

Dalia and Jackson's story is full of suspense, blood and lots of steam. It packs a little bit of everything to make one

Blood Sky was an enjoyable read for me. I find mafia stories interesting because of the whole family dynamic and just everything that goes along with being in a mafia family. I enjoyed how fast paced this story was. It kept me on my toes for the entire story and had me guessing what would happen next. I do wish the love between Jackson and Delia didn’t develop so quickly though. I enjoy seeing the love between two characters grow and develop over the entire storyline. I don’t think there was a ...more

I definitely liked elements of this dark and suspenseful romance, but couldn’t get fully invested in the couple’s relationship. The writing style held my attention from the beginning, and the book gets started on the action right away so the pages were flying by. But along the way, things began bothering me that pulled me out of the story, and ultimately I couldn’t get back to my original enjoyment of the book.

The story follows Delia, the daughter of a mafia boss whose family was slain two weeks

This story sucked me in immediately, packing a huge punch right out of the gate, which is something that I can NEVER get enough of!

If you love suspense, drama, adventure, blood, sweat and tears and a whole lot of hot steamy sex then this story Blood Sky is for you!!

I commend S. Massery with her exceptional writing skills in bringing forth a crime driven Mafia family who will not stop at anything to protect their own. This story captured and captivated my interest right from the start to the unpredictable epilogue. Now I am so anxious to read the next book and believe me you will too!!

This is a great mafia love story. I connected to the characters and the story from the beginning as it is written in a dual POV. The story is interlaced with stories of some of the characters past explaining a little about who they are and how they are all connected; which I found helpful to the storyline. It is also a twisted puzzle, with totally hot men and great lifelong friendships.

Jackson and Delia have a great connection, they really are in sync with each other from the beginning. He

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

I watched my enemies murder my father. On the run, I plot to return home and lead my mafia family as my father did. But some would kill for my inheritance, and unearthing those people from the shadows would be impossible without Jackson. He rescued me, and has saved me over and over again-and could be the key to my survival. The problem is,his morals keep getting in the way.
