Where to even start with Guts & Glass? Skyla, what are you doing to us? Leaving us with that ending was so cruel. I feel I need to start a Facebook page just to get myself through as I’m sure others are shocked by that ending. Guts & Glass is the 6th book in the New York Crime Kings series and it did not disappoint.
I find it incredibly hard reviewing books that are in series’. I will say if you have not read the other books do not read this review! I don’t give spoilers in my reviews ever, but I may mention something that happened in previous book which could ruin the story for you. Guts & Glass picks up straight from Ink & Bone. I love that there’s no gaps in the story and feel it flows better. So much so, I can see me re-reading the whole serious once its finished back to back.
We are back in Jai, Emily, Joel and Monique at Skulls compound/home and things aren’t looking great for our guys and girls. I often get to thinking, what else could possibly go wrong for these guys and Skyla always manages to whip something else out of the bag to shock us with. There’s plenty of Skull and Emily time in this book – I know he’s the bad guy but I love me some Skull! I still want there to be a prequel featuring just Skull. I’d definitely buy it!
The pace in this book was quicker I felt that the rest. Not rushed, I don’t mean Skyla has lost her writing knack. No I mean more fast paced, lots happening. That little slip of information towards the end about Joel. I didn’t see it coming! The party and what Joel had to do. I felt Jai wasn’t as pushed in this book as poor Joel. I also admit I like Joel more than Jai. But both are great boy candy!
As I can’t mention spoilers I will say this is a must read in the New York Crime Kings series if you have read the rest. If you are just discovering the series, you need to read them all. These are great short reads (About 1-2 hours each) and so much happens to keep your interest and wet your appetite. Rolls on the next book so we know what happens. I do hope we aren’t waiting too long!
Guts & Glass gets a solid 4 stars from me. Probably the best book in the series so far. Skyla as always has a huge fan here and I can’t wait to see what happens next. Please don’t keep us waiting long.
