Hawke (Men of Syn Book 1) Anise Storm – Review by Sarah Oakes

Hawke (Men of Syn, #1)Hawke by Anise Storm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A great read about the past. Hawke is trying to get a his new nightclub set up in the local area. To make sure it has the best and biggest opening night, he hires a party planner company to help him out. But it comes with a face from his past with Charlotte Maxwell. Can he overcome his past or will it overshadow his future?
A great read. Well developed plot. Well developed characters like Hawke trying to build his business despite his feelings or Charlotte standing up for herself but vulnerable underneath.
I loved the visual detail throughout the novel like in Hawke’s office with the desk and chair all organised and a sense of control. Or the weather with its snow and slush and ice cold wild and untamable for a wonderful sense of contrast.
The switch of perspectives worked well to display both sides of the story and was easy to follow with names in the chapter titles. The flashbacks and or memories were written well and didn’t disrupt with the narrative of the present.The only issue I would raise is that there were lots of long sentences making it hard to read and causing repetition in a lot of places. If this was reduced, it would make for an excellent read. Overall, a great read and I would give it four stars.
