Review: Frisco James (Brac Village #7) by Lynn Hagen

Frisco James (Brac Village #7)Frisco James by Lynn Hagen
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Okay, so I initially wrote this up as a 1 stars, but I reminded myself that there were some details at the end that brought up the quality of the story up a notch. So just for that one last chapter, I give it a 2.

I really. Really. Am. Venting!

This is just me, so I must vent.

But first, here's the blurb:

Frisco James was a hustler. Plain and simple. Although he was a bareknuckle boxing champion in the underground circuit, Frisco was looking for a change. Maverick Brac owed him a debt and Frisco headed to Brac Village to collect.

Recker lost his twin when the group of men he lived with was attacked by the grey wolves. He was angry, bitter, but tried his best to go on. When he loses control and nearly kills a man, Maverick steps in, demanding that either Recker agree to anger management or be deemed unfit to live in society.

Recker and Frisco’s worlds collide. Frisco sees Recker as an opportunity, nothing more. He whisks Recker away from the Den, plunging the man into the gritty world of illegal boxing.
But when Recker nearly kills his first opponent, Frisco James realizes the horrific mistake he has made. Desperate, Frisco does the one thing that he knows will save Recker’s life and humanity…he walks away.

But nothing is ever that simple, especially when Frisco James—a man who has looked out for no one but himself—discovers that his heart is no longer his own.

Two things I absolutely HATE in this world are: con-men and public exhibition. And these two are the things which are blatant in this book.

Okay, I will stop. I really hated it.

Honestly, read it in under an hour. I flitted through the pages of con-artistry, betrayal, angst, and public exhibitionism. I only really focused on the lamentably short percentage of good content - including the last chapter.

I will be even more honest: I will look forward to Brac Village #7 now, because of that last chapter. I will relegate this one under the shelf: to be forgotten.


I may be mistaken!

Is this Ms. Hagen's way of saying that obnoxious men can also be lovable?
