Review ~~ Violent Things by Callie Hart
VIOLET THINGS by Callie Hart
You’re never really out until you’re dead. That’s what the mob bosses, gunrunners and car thieves of Seattle will tell you, anyway.
Zeth Mayfair, ex mafia enforcer, has other ideas. Since falling for Sloane, he’s managed to turn her life upside down. Now, he’s determined to give her a stable, happy and, most importantly, safe life. If that means he has to sleep with one eye open and one hand on a shotgun, then that’s what he’ll do.
Mason Reeves is just looking for a way to take care of his sick sister. Since their mother left, things have been hard, and they’re only getting harder. Prescription meds don’t come cheap, and working as an auto mechanic only pays so well. If he wants to give Millie the life she deserves, he’s going to have to earn it with his fists. And who better to teach him how to fight than the guy who took down the biggest gangster in Seattle?
You can try to get out…
You can try to be good…
You can steer clear of trouble…
But it’s only a matter of time before trouble comes looking for you.

DAWN’S 5 STAR REVIEW
Another 5 Smokin’ Stars for me!!
Zeth, Sloane, Michael and the infamous black duffel bag are back!! I could not be more elated!! As soon as I started reading, it was like meeting up with old friends. Callie Hart has done it again. She sucked me in, got me hooked and left me desperate for more!!
In Violent Things, Zeth and Sloane have started to create a life for themselves, away from his past and his old “business.” But once your in his line of work, can you ever truly get out? Is it possible to live a normal life? Well, it seems they aren’t out of the woods just yet…. Zeth may be playing nice, but he’s still his bad ass self. Callie continues to keep him true to form (thank you). The man oozes sex, power, danger and now LOVE. He may not say the words, but it’s in everything he does. Him and Sloane heated up the pages in this book. That magical duffel bag made quite a few appearances, that left me flushed and panting. You can feel their devotion and loyalty for one another. It is so intense and unwavering. There was the always present feeling of lurking danger, mystery and suspense. Their story continued, but Callie also introduced us to new fascinating characters. A brother and sister, Mason and Millie. Mason is all heart. He seems smart, resourceful and courageous. He will do whatever it takes to survive and take care of his baby sister. They haven’t had it easy, especially with no one to rely on but each other. I found them so endearing, I just wanted to take them home with me. Looks like our boy Zeth has taken an interest in Mason. I can not wait to see where this goes and learn more about them….
Callie you are one evil lady, you gave us just enough of a taste… such a tease! I am so eager and a tad bit scared to see where Zeth and Sloane’s journey will go next. I just pray you go easy on us!! My heart is still fragile from the last book. I will never get tired of reading about Zeth & Sloane. Keep going with it lady and THANK YOU for giving them back to us!!
