Wild Bastard by India Kells
Four Stars

Wild Bastard is the third book in the Dark Sparrows Series by India Kells. This series should be read in order to get all of the background and to better understand all of the characters in this series. 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

“The Dark Sparrow Series” is a spin off of “The Women of Purgatory Series” and while I believe each book can be read on its own, there are threads that tie it all together. The characters all live in the same “world”. WILD BASTARD is book # 6 in both series and # 3 in the Dark Sparrow series. I think it is important/helpful to read each in order because there are so many cross over characters.

WILD BASTARD is a fast paced story and while I was going to read for a little bit on this gorgeous spring Saturday of Memorial Day weekend, I found myself not able to put the book down until I was finished.

I love reading strong female characters who work to lift other women up instead of putting then down. This action packed story certainly has its share of fabulous females.

From beginning to the end, this story is well plotted and has a very clear path as the story winds itself through the twists and turns. I am so glad the series is continuing because I’m not ready to say goodbye yet.

Wild Bastard: A Dark Sparrow Novel by India Kells is a page turning romantic suspense. I instantly devoured this story as the author released this next story in the Dark Sparrow series. The writing is exciting and highly entertaining. Isabel and Kai are magnetic in this story and I couldn’t tear my attention away from them. Their previous history set the pages on fire along with their present interactions as they unfolded. The suspense and character portrayals were excellently written and kept the high energy continuous from start to beginning. The pace of the story was steady with some fast paced sequences falling exactly where needed. A great addition to the series with an amazing cast of characters.

5 out of 5 stars
Cold Bastard is the second book in the Dark Sparrow written by India Kells is the first book that I have read by this author and she has me intrigued with this storyline/plot of this book/series. The characters are well written and I loved the way they played off each other with their quirkiness. This is a dark suspenseful with some action and romance thrown together.
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 controls 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.
They both have secrets can they get past them or will the secrets destroy them? Can Archer’s heart thaw enough to let Zoe in? Will Zoe be able to help Archer or will his enemy destroy him? Will they have a happily ever after?
You will need to read this amazing book and now I’m going to read book one in this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

India Kells really just keeps on outdoing her own self. I have been an avid reader of Kells for a long time now so any time a new book of hers is available I tend to scoop them up without so much as a blink. I’m especially partial to this Dark Sparrow series of hers. Wild Bastard is the third book in the series, but could if you really want to miss out on some fantastic novels read this as a stand alone. They do have recurring characters but India Kells always keeps it easy to follow.

Wild Bastard is Kai and Izzy’s story. I adored these two and really enjoyed reading their journey. The two met and fell madly in love with each other years before but Izzy one day disappeared without so much as a goodbye. Here we are now and we find Izzy and Kai crossing each other’s path again. Will they be able to capture that same love they had before and hang on to it this time? I can’t wait to find out what will come next for the Dark Sparrow series!

Wild Bastard
A Dark Sparrow Novel
By India Kells
☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆
You will read and watch as the suspense turn into romance. Yes it is one of those must reads.

Isabel is in love with Kai. But that is the one thing she can not tell him. When she had to walk away from him, she did so with a bleeding heart. Little did she know. Kai felt the same towards her. Isabel is a strong independent woman with goals. Kai is a strong man with all the fight he may need to bring his father down. Is this a romance worth fighting for? Read the book and let e know what you think.

India Kells has once again written a great suspenseful romance. I loved her characters,as well as the rollercoaster this story takes you on. My emotions were all over the place. There are tender moments, but they don’t last long. Then the suspense takes over and you can’t put the book down, as you might miss something. This was one of those books, when you say. “I’ll just read one more chapter.”The next thing you know the evening has gone, and it is time to get up. Make sure to read this book and the others in order, so you get the whole picture. Well done India Kells, well done!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild Bastard is the third installment in the Dark Sparrow series and can be read as a stand-alone although characters from the previous book are featured in this book. With that said in my opinion for the best reading experience i would read the two previous books first.
This story is all about second chances and with the history that Kai and Izzy have, there is alot going on in their lives. They work so well together but the amount of secrets weigh heavily on their shoulders and that can slowly drive people apart.
This book had a little bit of everything. There is suspense, romance, action, danger and a whole lot of drama. It an extremely well written story that i lost myself in from the moment i picked it up. I am looking forward to reading more by this author and i would recommend it to a friend.

5 Stars

This is my 4th book by this author and my 2nd in this series, not sure how I missed the first one but that is an easy fix 🙂

This author has a style of writing that lures you in from the very first chapter and she places twists and turns throughout that you seriously don’t see coming and although most are not life shattering, throw your kindle kind of twists they still pack quite a punch and I love love love that.

The anger displayed in the beginning of this story was completely justified on one side and completely understandable on the other once I knew the whole story. I love these books and the continuing story going on with some new people added to the mix in every book.

I love the connection between these brothers even if everyone of them are so very different and I already can not wait for Liam’s story and did I read that last part correctly? Sister? I can’t even imagine where this one is gonna go and what needs to happen to bring the evil down…

Love these books and can’t recommend them high enough and really anything by this author is an absolute must read!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wild Bastard is the third novel in the Dark Sparrow series by India Kells. This is my second novel by this author.

Kai is on a mission to stopping his father, who is not a nice guy. Izzy is suppose to help down Kai’s father’s business but she has some secrets of her own.

This is a story of redemption, betrayal, and revenge, and a sprinkle of love and it’s a great read with amazing characters.

I love series that can be read has a standalone but also see characters from previous novels. I don’t want to give anything away.

For lovers of suspenseful romance and a read that leave you on the edge of your seat, I recommend this novel and series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was completely unable to put this book down. This could be read as a standalone book but it includes people from other books in this series so I was looking forward to another romp in this crazy world. Every one of these books that I read grips me more than the previous one and I feel as though I may be utterly addicted to them. There is something about the fast paced adventure in these stories that keeps you flipping the pages and before you know it, the book is done, you are left bereft and looking for your next fix. This one tugged a little more on my heart strings than Wild Bastard, probably because I could see a little bit of myself in Zoe and I like that I could relate to her. As my addiction to India Kells and her writing grows, I will certainly be diving into the rest of this series with full enthusiasm.
