Lost Bastard – Deva & Aleksei
This is an intense story. I love how strong of a character Deva is. She hits a great balance of fierce and feminine. I enjoyed the way the layers of backstory were dripped throughout. The timing of it added depth and emotion. There is an emotional moment in chapter thirty-seven. Not going to lie, I teared up. Lost Bastard is a stellar read. You won’t be able to put it down.

Cold Bastard – Zoe & Archer
This is a great read! I loved that Zoe is nerdy and snarky. Her wit is fabulously executed. The way she doesn’t back down from Archer creates spectacular tension between them. I loved the reappearance of the two neighbor characters. The odd pairing adds a little comic relief when they bicker with each other. The complexity of Archer’s character is excellent. The fight scene in the club shows his demons a bit. Cold Bastard is an excellent reading adventure. It’ll keep you turning the pages.

Wild Bastard – Isabel & Kai
Wild Bastard is a great second chance romance with a kick. Isabel is a strong, smart, self-made woman. I loved her character. Getting to know Kai was interesting, but I will say that of the brothers so far, I connected with Kai’s backstory the least – which is odd because I usually connect to military characters pretty strongly. It might be because we didn’t really get to see how his past affects him to the extent that we see it with Archer and Aleksei. It’s mentioned a couple of times, but we don’t see the intense emotional toll so it feels superficial.
One thing I loved about the story is that Isabel chose to hang onto a piece of her past and used it strategically. Her relationship with her mother regarding that piece is awesome.
Overall, this is an amazing, intense story that will grab a hold of you and won’t let go.

A Dark Sparrow Box Set (Books 1-3) by India Kells

Lost Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #1)

This is the first book in A Dark Sparrow Series. This is the first book I’ve read by the author, but it won’t be my last. Kells has really done a great job writing this.

Deva, a Dark Sparrow, goes to help Lazarus. He wants to watch his brothers and make sure he’s kept out of harm’s way. Little does Deva know that the brother is going to capture her heart. The quote I chose for Deva is: “I agree. And I couldn’t stop thinking about what Finch and my father had said. All those speeches about patience, about preparing for war. What if he was speaking about a war from within? What if Finch had prepared things way in advance, and placed his pawns in strategic places.”

Aleksei, Lazarus’s half brother, trains at the gym only to find his Angel there. He keeps her at arms length, but when he’s injured she’s the one to help him. Things get tough and he pushes her away. The quote I chose for Aleksei is: “You put yourself in danger! I told you to stay at the hotel under Lance and Kai’s protection, but you didn’t listen. You don’t listen! And now that I know you are safe, still breathing , still alive and whole…”

Cold Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #2)

This is the second book of A Dark Sparrow Novels. As the second book I’ve read by the author I can say I’ve enjoyed it. Kells knows how to capture a reader’s attention.

Zoe knows her languages and is requested by Beatrice for a favor. Keep an eye on one of Lazarus’s half brothers. Not sure what she’s getting herself into she goes. She finds herself going back to the past. The quote I chose for Zoe is: “You had love in your life, and even if you struggled and battled through some tough times, you had a choice to do something with it. Grabbing that power. I will never judge you for the decisions you made, that path on the dark side. I would have done the same thing. Hell, I’m doing it right now. At least love brought you back. You always have a choice, Archer. Never forget that.”

Archer Blackwood, moves from London to Chicago, a cold man needs someone who can translate languages for him. What he doesn’t know is his half brother is really looking out for him. Zoe has thawed the cold man a little. The quote I chose for Archer is: “Don’t put yourself in danger, do you hear me? Steer clear of Finch. You’re mine.”

Wild Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #3)

The third book in A Dark Sparrow Novels. Kells has really upped her game from the first two books. Lazarus is at it again with helping one of the many half brothers and Kells captures it perfectly.

Isabel is the next Dark Sparrow to be called upon the favor. What she doesn’t realize when she agrees to the meeting is she’ll be running right into the past’s arms. Jones isn’t who she expected to see and it gets better. The quote I chose for Isabel is: “No pressure. Because all I want is you.”

Kai, Delta Force, goes to another meeting in hopes to bring down his father, Finch. What he’s not expecting is for the girl who broke his heart and got away is the one that’s helping. Things don’t go as planned and it scares him. The quote I chose for Kai is: “Are you still set on returning to work tomorrow?”

This was one amazing box set. Dark romantic suspense lovers these are your books!

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Such a great set of books. The story in each book is filled with steamy romance, drama and action making for an excellent read, and this is only the first 3 of the six brothers!

In these books Lazarus King recruits Beatrice, his friend and the woman in charge of sending people out on dangerous rescue missions. Lazarus’ mission? To save all his bastard brothers from their father, Jamieson Finch.

The first books is about Aleksei and Deva.
Deva is such a strong woman. The way she pick up the pieces of her life after getting out of her father’s grip is admirable. When she chooses to help with wounded soldier’s rehab because of her brother, my heart melted, she is an amazing woman. When she meets Aleksei, it is no walk in the park. He pisses her off with almost everything he says but she still can’t deny the attraction they have.

The second book is about Zoe and Archer.
I just love Zoe. She is such a strong, independent, beautiful woman yet she is fragile and slightly self conscious. I am super impressed with her skills as a translator. The chemistry between her and her new boss Archer is off the charts. My heart breaks for Zoe, as sometimes she feels like she is not good enough for a man like him and then other times I want to scream at them both to just communicate better! The drama that unfolds with Archer’s new business buy out and Zoe’s brother is super exciting and along with all the action, fighting and plotting, really gave the book that extra edge. The secondary characters are very lovable and just as interesting to get to know. I would highly recommend this book and I personally can not wait to read Kai and Izzy’s story.

The third book is Izzy and Kai.
Kai’s father is a douche and Kai will stop at nothing to bring his father’s company down while also dealing with his feelings for Izzy. Izzy was brought in to help bring Kai’s father’s business down but at the same time her past secrets are revealed. Izzy is a strong woman, and her personality had me loving her from the very beginning.

These books can all be read as stand alones but they are MUCH better read in order, because they are all as equally amazing as the next one.

I chose to review book 2 as it is my favorite.
In this book you will find suspense, a little twist and a whole lot of forbidden love. They can be a standalone but best to read the series from the beginning.

Zoe Somersby has taken her job to the limit. Her specialty is translating many languages, under cover. But she does not let on so, she can hear what is needed. To keep her boss safe. Be his ears during his business dealings. Learning everything could come to a halt. After all she did sign a contract stating she could not get involved with the boss personally!

Archer Blackwood is the CEO of his own company, extremely good looking but, he is cold and ruthless. Loaded with money Archer is in control of everything. He has hired Zoe, the one and only woman that has gotten under his skin. He has no time for falling in love?

India Kells is an exciting new author for me. She sucked right into her book.This story was filled with all kinds of angst and twists. Her characters will make you fall in love with them, well some of them anyway. Others will just keep you wondering when they will get to meet Karma. Now that she has a boxed set I can read them again all together. A must if you love re reading the series as I do. So feel free to get started with this series. I will be out here waiting for her next series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Dark Sparrow Box Set includes the first three books in India Kells’ Dark Sparrow series! I have read the whole series and I love the present we have been given – getting three in one! If you want to get a start on a binge reading of a great series then this set is for you! (I promise you will not finish with just these three, you want to reach for the next one in the series as well and then we will be in the same boat … waiting!)
Dark Sparrows gives us the stories of six men fathered by the same bastard evil man! In the set we meet three of the brothers … they are as different AND as same as they can be! From orphaned and alone to rich and controlled and then a seemingly beach bum with a deadly skill set! Each of the men come with a woman that has her own secrets and pain … I have really hard time to tell you who is my favourite, it changes with each book (meaning with each brother I change my favourite) so who knows what will happen when the next brother enters (well, he already has so I know I will change my favourite order)!
The Box Set includes the story of the underground fighter Aleksei and MC princess Deva (Lost Bastard, Book #1), of the ruthless business man Archer and professional translator/code breaker Zoe (Cold Bastard, Book #2), and of former Delta Force/beach bum Kai and Isabel, a woman hiding way more you can even imagine (Wild Bastard).
You will get drunk on suspense and adventure and romance and will feel such a book hangover when you get to the end!

I loved the stories in this set. The books are based on brothers who all share a father that doesnt want to know them.

Each brother grew up on his own with their own story of hurt and betrayal making them the men they are today.

Its the love of a good woman and the desire to stop their father from harming the ones they love that brings the brothers together.

Each book can be read as a standalone and are full of romance and adventure

A Dark Sparrow Box Set
Four Stars

A Dark Sparrow Box Set is the first three books in the Dark Sparrow Series by India Kells. This set contains Lost Bastard, Cold Bastard and Wild Bastard. All three stories are a wonderful reads and can be read as standalones.

Lost Bastard features Aleksie and Deva. This book is full of action, mystery, danger and romance. This book had me hooked from the first page and I couldn’t put it down. The characters development is wonderful and the situations are intense.

Cold Bastard is the second book in the Dark Sparrow series by India Kells. I love a strong willed, kickass female lead and you will get that in this book. This story had me hooked from the very first page, and I read it in one sitting. It is full of action, suspense, humor and romance. The incredible writing skills and detailed characters made this a great read.

Wild Bastard is the third book in the Dark Sparrows Series by India Kells. This book hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down till the last. This is Isabel and Kai’s story. They have so much chemistry, but also a bunch of baggage from their past. My emotions were taking big swings during this book, and I loved the action. I would highly recommend this book, series and author. I’m really looking forward to seeing what Ms.Kells has in store for us next.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Dark Sparrow Box Set – Books 1-3 (Dark Sparrow Series) by India Kells consists of the first three books and this series.

You have six men, all fathered by the same man who’s lives could be more different except for their one common bond, Daddy who is anything but father of the year material.

Of the three brothers featured in this box set I think I liked Kai the best but they are all so different I’m not sure if he was really my favorite if I picked him because he is freshest in my mind.

There is no lack in adventure, suspense and romance in all of the books. I can’t wait to see what happens next.

5 out of 5 stars

This is the Box set of the Dark Sparrow books 1-3 written by India Kells. The characters are well written and strong. The story line is unique and different that’s why I fell in love with this series. The twist and turns in these books are awesome…

Book, one has
Deva Landry is assigned to babysit bad-boy cage fighter Aleksei Voronov, forcing her back into the murky underworld of Chicago. Prepared for the worst, she’s shocked to uncover a kindred spirit, a wounded soul like hers. Chaos strikes and the two are thrown together on an impromptu mission to stop a city-wide massacre.

Book Two has
Zoe Somersby is a strong woman, independent, and sought for her code-breaking and translation skills is sent in undercover and finds herself falling for the man she has been sent to help Archer Blackwood.
Archer Blackwood is a hard cold man he is a British businessmen trying to sell his company in Chicago. He is also ruthless businessman that likes to control everything and everyone, no exceptions. Ever.
She knows how power and money can corrupt a man. For those reasons she became a Dark Sparrow. So, she finds this mission amusing at the beginning. That was until the menace turns darker and her attraction to Archer becomes overwhelming.

Book three has
Isabel Osborne learned early that when life gives you lemons, grab the salt and find some tequila. Before her life took an unexpected path, she found her prince charming in the form of a laughing surfer. The tragedy was that she couldn’t keep him, and even worse, had to break his heart.
Kai Jones, former Delta Force, and together with his bastard brothers, has a single objective bring down their father at all cost before other lives are on the line. But when he comes face to face with a siren from his past, his mighty control is shattered and replaced by hatred and bitterness. How can he rein in his resentment toward the woman who betrayed him and focus on the mission?
I highly recommend this box set…
