ARC Review: MADMAN by WS Greer

People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.
Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I'm anything but weak.

My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love.

I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want.

I'm infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy--the underboss of the Philadelphia mob.

It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now.
Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.

REVIEW


My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Solomon King, the King of all kings, grew up in the school of hard knocks. Born to a neglectful junkie ho, deep in the clutches of poverty, he knew the only way he was going to find a way out was by his own blood, sweat and tears. Armed with an almost cocky attitude and a chip on his shoulder, he and his best friend, Nix, start on the path to success. Once a stick-up kid, he’s graduated to armed robbery. And the sweetest thing he’s ever met, Reina, a girl from the right side of the tracks, proved to be his ride-or-die in every way. Until the day she disappears. Fast forward seven years and Solomon is virtually at the top of his game, his biggest rival being the Philly mob who want to erase him as a threat, and surprisingly Reina is back. Is she here to hurt him or help him? You have to read the book to find out!

I really really really liked Solomon. I get that he was an anti-hero and had virtually no redeeming qualities, but there was a strange sort of honesty in his crimes. And that’s one thing about this character that you have to respect - his honesty. I also admired his fearlessness. This man was freaking BOLD! I enjoyed the action scenes, the background stories, the itty-bitty romance with Reina, and a lot in between. I was hoping that the sex scenes would be hotter, however, after reading the author’s note at the end about how he wanted this to be a book his children could read, I can understand why it was on the milder end. This story is far from over, as far as I can tell, and I look forward to whatever happens next!
