Crusher was a real stand out read for me last year and to be honest I thought it was going to be a stand alone....so I was more than thrilled that I would be getting more dishy Finn action *wink*
This is a fast and very lively read, actually I think it's a lot grittier that Crusher. There are so many big heart pounding shockers and in between each and every one I was sitting on the very edge of my seat! Leonard is a very cleaver writer, he knows when to push and when to pull back for the ultimate pacy and very racy effect! I love how down-to-earth, gritty, raw and utterly believable everything is!
Finn Maguire is a really likeable guy, he is raw as ropes but he always tries to do the right thing. In this instalment Finn's life seems to be getting back on track, he has started running his own gym and things seem to be going well. Everything takes a bumpy turn when he makes a promise to a loan shark, to get his business partner and friend out of trouble...but it's a promise he can't keep and things turn messy!
Finn then starts poking his nose into dangerous places and someone will stop at nothing to silence him....
The run up to the ending is nail bitingly brilliant and the ending itself blew me away - I really loved it!
Incinerator is yet again another stand out read from Niall Leonard, it's thrilling, chilling, edgy and has some very sexy little tidbits that I wasn't expecting. I really hope we get loads more adventures with Finn Maguire!
4.5 / 5 Stars!
