A Dirty Business (Kings Of New York #1) by Tijan

2.5 Stars

Jess Montell is a parole officer who takes pride in her career, but when she meets Tristian West, life as she knows it is about to change irrevocably…


A Dirty Business was a mafia themed, opposites attract, forbidden romance! Jess and Trace are completely wrong for each other, but with an attraction that refuses to dissipate, will they risk their very lives for a chance to be together?

Jess was a parole officer whose identity was her career, and everything about her infatuation with Trace risks her losing it.

Trace may belong to a mafia family, but he has found his own success on Wall Street, and with owning a nightclub. And while he may want nothing to do with the family business, his choice in the matter is nonexistent…

The premise of this book had so much potential, but for me, the story was just too all over the place. There were too many moving parts, too much back and forth between the characters, and too much repeating scenes. With so many great aspects included in this story, I think I would have loved it if it had gone through a really good edit for length. 

I really wanted to like this book, and I definitely enjoyed the basis for Jess and Trace’s romance and their individual characters. Jess’s backstory was important and deserved a spotlight on it, but with a cliffhanger at the end of the book, I fear it will be quite awhile before any answers are given…

I received a complimentary copy of this book for my honest and unbiased review.
