My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book was something, guys. Liam, a cop, and Catriona, a nun, stole my heart. They were absolutely perfect together. I love when couples aren’t picture perfect for one another in every way and that’s exactly what India Kells gave us with True Bastard. The love in this book is unlikely and unexpected, but it really works. The supporting characters were really well developed, also! While this is book 4, it can be read as a stand-alone.

Once again we are entranced by another Bastard! True Bastard is Book 4 in the Dark Sparrows series by India Kells. Liam Harker is one of the brothers that is ready to take down his father for all that it costs. Problem number one…he is a cop. He has been tasked to go through his father’s financials but in order to do so he is going to need some help. Here comes problem number two…his help is newbie nun who just happens to have a talent in numbers. And the final problem…he has an attraction to said nun. Sister Catriona Walsh is just about to take her vows to become a full-fledged nun when she is asked to help Liam go through the financials. I would definitely read the other books first as they contain information to keep you informed about what has happened previously. I loved this book as I loved the others and I really hope that there is another book in the series so we can finish out the brothers. I just love all the character and how they interact with each other. It is such an adventure to see this series unfold and this book didn’t disappoint!

You have been an orphan and been shown love within the church and shown compassion will she be able to unmelt the cold heart and show love to a lost soul.

Catriona has lived her life in a sheltered convent but when she recieves to call to action will she be able to put aside the love she feels for a man she can’t have.

Liam is broken as one of the bastard sons of Finch he is trying to get them rest of his brothers to get him legitimately, so when he starts digging within his father’s finances will Catriona be able to find the missing piece to get the sadistic man Finch.

Kai and Liam were my favourite brothers within this series so far and I loved that they both get books, the chemistry between these two characters jumps off the page like all the stories so far. I love the way the story has arced through all four books but they are brilliantly enough to read as stand alone books also, but to be honest who would as they are brilliant and full of twists and turns can’t wait to read the next book, please please please Oz and Sasha would be appreciated.

True Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel #4) by India Kells was a good 4 star read and can be read as a stand alone.

Liam was injured on the job and is still working on bringing his father down, along with his brothers. Knowing that they need some additional help, we meet Catriona. As soon as Liam meets her there are some instant sparks. There is only one problem, Catriona is a nun.

Will she be able to help Liam? Can Liam stay away from Catriona and keep it professional?

These two have similar childhoods, Catriona was an orphan raised by nuns and Liam was raised by his uncle. There is so much going on, you are on the edge of your seat. The author does a great job with her writing. We get suspense, danger, romance and so much more.

Overall this was a great read. All of the characters added a great element to the story. If you’re looking for a great read that pulls you in, 1-click and get started today. I will warn that there is a scene that could be a trigger for some. I look forward to reading more from this series and author.

Wild Bastard (A Dark Sparrow Novel Book 3) by India Kells – Review by Naomi McDonald

Wild BastardWild Bastard by India Kells
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

True Bastard is the fourth book in the Dark Sparrow series You could probably read this as a standalone, but you’ll enjoy it more with the backstory from the other books in the series.

I have to say, I relate to the opening in chapter one where Liam feels like meeting Catriona is a cosmic joke. I have felt that way many times in my life. Things seem to line up perfectly, and then the universe lowers the boom. I felt for the guy, lol.

This story is everything you would expect from this author – great chemistry between the characters, adventure, angst, and romance. Once you start reading, you’ll stay up all night just to finish it!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is not my first book by India Kells but I would have to say that this is one of my favorites. India Kells puts a lot of heart and soul into her characters. They are fully developed and have unique qualities. She gives them such personable personalities. Take Liam, he is a cop and he wants to make his father pay for wrongdoings. Now there is only one who can help him and that is Sister Catriona. You read that right Sister Catriona, as in a nun title. Sister Catrionais great at numbers and he feels like she can help him. Then something happens that changes Liam’s feelings for Sister Catriona. You will have to read the book to see what happens.
