[Review] Wings by Fawn Bailey


Two brothers. One woman. And a villain out to end it all. Discover the mafia world of Gilded Cage in this full-length dark romance novel. First book in a trilogy.
There’s only one thing you need to know about Ophelia Sokolov. She was promised to me, not my brother. And I’ll do anything in my power to make her mine. She’s my future. My destiny. My f*cking property.
My name is Max Marino. My family owns this city. I kill because I have to. I f*ck because I can. And I will have Ophelia because I always have my way.
We were destined to be together. A bond that would tie our families together forever. But she fell for my younger brother… And Ryker never wanted me to have what had always meant to be mine. He took so much from me. Our parents. Our careers. But Ophelia is mine. And I’ll kill to prove it…



Raw and disturbing…

And so the main event begins…..described within these pages is a violent world where whole families can be slaughtered, and princesses stolen and violated at the whim of a vengeful and maleficent adversary…

The characters in this book are very much the products of their brutal worlds….and Ophelia appears to be a slightly strange victim and pawn although there are moments when a hidden strength shines through even in the darkest of situations…Kain, Ryker and Max are all complicated and, at times, unfathomable characters, and it is by no means certain which, if any, of these men deserve to be respected, loved or despised….maybe all of these at once..

I was gripped by this raw, disturbing and twisted story, and the ending, a cliffhanger, changes the dynamics all over again..I am already desperate for the next book…



Feather by Fawn Bailey



The story of Gilded Cage begins with mafia princess Ophelia and twins out to own her… But there’s a villain preying in the darkness, and he’s almost ready to strike.

Ophelia Sokolov. Innocent, beautiful and spoiled. The daughter of a Russian mafia kingpin, I get everything I want with the click of my fingers. Except for him.

I’ve been in love with Ryker for years, but I’m supposed to marry his brother, Max. Until that one fateful day, celebrating my eighteenth birthday when everything changes. There’s evil lurking in the shadows, just like Papa said. And this time, I won’t be able to hide…



The ending is just the beginning …..

A dark and gripping prequel to a new mafia series….this book is all about introductions, beginnings…and endings

Seen mostly through the eyes of Ophelia, the world in which these characters exist is an opulent facade where power and influence is determined by the last, brutal and violent men standing..

Revenge is most definitely not sweet….. and the ending is undoubtedly just the start; I can not wait to begin…

Pure White Rose by Fawn Bailey



“I will punish you for every step you take away from me.”

She’s finally mine, but she won’t admit it.
My little rose thinks she can still run away from me.
She should know better by now.

I’m ready to do whatever it takes to stop her from getting away.

Hurt her. She’ll have the bruises to show for it.
F*ck her. Until she never wants another man.
Punish her. Make her crave my whip, my belt and my toys.

The only thing I won’t do…
Is love her.



Shameful and shameless….

Omg this is a very ominous, less well trod path that these characters are following….. don’t get me wrong, I knew it was a dark read and it was never going to be easy.. but there is always a vestige of hope that one character will shed a sliver of light into the twisted, unscrupulous world of the other… but not in this story…they are both on a desperate, unsafe and insane journey into darkness…

These characters are fascinating, wonderfully penned creations; their world views so disparate… Thorn is merciless and wicked; there is no doubting his obsession with Rose and its potentially destructive consequences.. and yet there is something devastatingly beautiful in their dysfunctional relationship.

This is not a love story, in the time old tradition, but it is the tortuous marrying of two lost souls who find something that they were unaware they were searching for….Their relationship is dangerous and primeval and yet there is also an overwhelming feeling of safety and belonging between them…As their story unfolds I have experienced anger, frustration, shock and deep sadness but also feelings tantamount to joy and hope….

This series is shameful and shameless and I am completely addicted to it …..the final destination for these two starkly contrasting but somehow perfectly matched characters is a complete unknown but I am determined to stick with them to the bittersweet end….
