Book Review: Broken Angel By S.W. Vaughn

An influential crime boss with an appetite for power…

A sadistic enforcer whose name alone strikes fear in the souls of the most hardened criminals…

And an innocent man who is forced to join their twisted games.

Gabriel Morgan will do anything to save his sister. But when her captor, Marcus Slade, demands payment in blood, Gabriel finds himself plunged into the darkest of worlds–New York’s criminal underground, where violence is a commodity and the only rule is survival at any cost.

BROKEN ANGEL is a high-octane suspense thriller, packed with action and edge-of-your-seat tension–from chilling start to shocking, jaw-dropping finale.

51rpzrNY0CL._AA200_I loved this 35 chapter book. Homeless, Gabriel had just moved to New York City in search of his missing sister, Lillith. He’d do anything to protect her, and when i say ‘anything,’ that’s not an exaggeration.

My favorite lines: 1) A dark smile surfaced, and he said, “I’d kill you for free. But right now, you’re worth more to me alive.” 2) Fear pulled his senses into sharp relief. 3) The lie came easy. He’d had years of practice.

It was revealed pretty early that Marcus Slade was behind it all. The biggest mystery of the real reason why lingered until the end. It was fun trying to solve clues to figure it all out. There was a cool twist at the end that I wasn’t expecting at all!

Marcus knew that Gabriel was a good fighter, so he wanted to own and control him for underground fighting–no rules. Marcus wanted to make a lot of money off of him; he’d already turned Lillith into a high-end escort.

The author had a fantastic talent with creating the characters’ relationships. I loved that the dynamics were three-dimensional. No one truly trusted each other, even though some people got along there was still some tension. Heroes had faults while villains had positive qualities. I liked the moral gray aspect. The author also did a great job with plot. The action wasn’t stopped for excessive backstory or info dumps. Each scene was valuable for the plot to move forward.

My favorite scenes: 1) Jenner quit inside the limo 2) Akuma and Gabriel fighting in the ring

I RECOMMEND this book to read.

    • Hey Catana,

      That’s cool that you have the whole series. You know I want to ask about everything like happens (like spoilers) LOL.

      Have you read S.W. Vaughn’s revamp of Little Red Riding Hood?

      Keep smiling,

      • Nope, I’m not giving out any spoilers. That wouldn’t be fair.

        Haven’t read anything else by Vaughn. She seems to have turned to erotica/romance. Not to my taste.

      • Hey Catana,

        It didn’t hurt to try LOL. It seems like a lot of writers are turning that route. Sex sells 🙂

        Keep smiling,
