Come to the United States, they said. Freedom and endless opportunities for all, they said. So we did—made the ninety-mile trek overseas from Havana to Key West. What they didn’t tell us was how hard these supposed opportunities would be to obtain when you’re an illegal alien. A fact that forced both my brother and I onto a dark path in an effort to help our family. The difference between Tommy and I? He didn’t get caught. Had I stayed away from Arcángel—the illusive, faceless mastermind behind the Upper Echelon—I might not have gotten caught either. Now, I’m paying the price, rotting away at the hands of the judicial system and facing possible deportation after serving my time. Can’t get worse, right? Wrong. Enter Andrés Bala—the new C.O. at the Annex who fits the tall, dark, and handsome stereotype to a T. It’s clear the man wants me, and I don’t understand why. Why I want him. I’m a criminal...he strives for justice. So wrong yet so right, we end up crossing the line, and after a sneaky, whirlwind affair, he vows to wait for me. The question now is: can Andrés handle la Jefa outside the confines of her cage?  

“ I won’t lie to you.

I fucked up.

For real, this time.”

Where the hell is book 2?!!! How are we supposed to survive this right now? The possibilities are endless and I feel like part 2 is going to give us one heck of showdown and some unexpected surprises. Birdy was the type of read that I didn’t see coming and for that alone, I enjoyed the heck out of it.

The entire time that I was reading this book, I felt like I was a watching a tv show play out!!. It was sexy, gritty, forbidden, and you had to know what was going to happen next. Birdy was a bad a** female heroine and this girl knew how to hold her own. I wanted this chick in my corner if things if things were to ever go south because she knew how to handle herself. I also really liked that she knew she made some poor choices and she owned up it even if it was a little too late because of her predicament.

I wont even lie and say that I was at ease the entire time while reading this story because I was not. The majority of the setting of the story took place in a prison and I was waiting for some craziness to go down!! Add in the fact that we also had a forbidden romance brewing in the background which made the risks even more extremely high, I was ready to bite off all of my fingernails!! These characters took a lot but they gave even more and in return they made fall in love with them.

If you’re in the mood for a somewhat dark forbidden romance with a bad a** heroine who’s story you will find rooting for, then this one is for you.

Please Note: this is part of a series and part one ends on a cliffhanger.
