The Boys Club by Angie Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
5 Cranky Stars!
Gabriel Logan grew up in foster care or a homeless juvenile delinquent trying to find his next meal.
Enter former FBI agent Jim Schaffer who is starting a fringe organization that operates outside the law for the sake of justice. Logan is Schaffer’s first recruit of boys that have lived a throwaway existence prior to joining what is called The Boys Club.
For sixteen years, Logan has set an example to others and brought many people to justice and one day Schaffer has plans for him to take over the group, until the results of his work end with his pregnant wife being murdered by Hugh Langston. He now is just going through the motions of getting the job done.
After the last job almost cost him his life he finally agrees to take some time off but one urgent job is handed to him to save the daughter of the man responsible for killing his wife. With this chance to bring down the person responsible he can’t turn the job down but this job will challenge him more than anything is the past.
Sara Langston is about to marry Stephen Mathers, which is almost an arranged marriage. Stephen is set to take over Langston business and by being married into the family the transition will go easier. Unfortunately Sara knows nothing of criminal activity her father is involved with but starts to question accounting issues for the one business.
This leads to the job that Logan has been given, kidnap Sara before her wedding to prevent the hit on her life to happen on the honeymoon.
The job seemed have come to them a little too easy, which causes concern for Logan of a potential leak within The Boys Club, so he has to look into these men he trusts to figure out if one is betraying him while finding a way to save Sara and take down Langston.
This was an amazing suspenseful action packed read. Both Logan and Sara have a troubled past and are thrown together in a difficult situation. The characters are well developed and even though the book does not end in a cliffhanger it would be awesome for another book because there is so much more that could be told.
Even the supporting characters add to the development and suspense of the story. There are plenty of twists and turns that just when you think you have it figured out you don’t. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat right from the start.
I highly recommend this book.
