    One of the few recent arcs I’m glad to have taken a chance on! I knew as soon as I heard the pitch ‘feminist Breaking Bad’ that I had to have this book, and I ended up actually enjoying it a lot despite some minor qualms.

    The novel follows 25 year old Harley, daughter of Duke McKenna, the infamous crime boss of her home, North County. The novel recounts Harley’s unconventional childhood as well as attempts to stop an impending turf war with the Springfields, the people responsible for the death o

    Mo knows every story, every detail, every bruise and broken bone on every woman’s who’s ever lived here’s body. Sometimes I think I understand, and then something happens, like today, and I realize I’ve just scraped the surface. Of the evil in the world. Of the good. Of the strength in every woman.


    It’s a pretty violent novel, which can be a good or bad thing depending on what type of reader you are. I appreciated the grittiness the violence added to the story.

    This is a novel I would say is close to a character study. Harley is an extremely developed character with a lot of backstory. She is flawed, but good hearted, scary but will do anything for those she cares about. One of the better written characters I’ve read in awhile.

    I liked the way the story was structured. It incorporates years of Harley’s past by starting chapters describing the first time things happened in her life, such as the first time she saw her father kill someone.

    My childhood wasn’t bikes and swim parties, it was full metal jackets and other men’s blood crusted beneath Duke’s fingernails.


    There is a romance, which I wasn’t completely sold on, but it also wasn’t a huge part of the story. I liked both characters enough on their own that I didn’t mind it.

    I was pleasantly surprised to see that Harley’s constant companion is her loyal pit bull, Busy, who she rescued as a puppy. There are a few quotes that kind of perpetuate the lockjaw myth, but I’m always on the lookout for positive pit bull portrayals, which this was for the most part.

    My only qualm with the novel is that it could get a little on the dramatic side for my taste. There were some lines that would definitely feel silly if said in real life, but the drama definitely fit the overall vibe of the book.

    Recommended for anyone who’s ever wished there was a show like Breaking Bad or Sons of Anarchy with a female lead. I wouldn’t really call this a thriller, but if you’re interested in a kickass, violent novel with a strong MC, I would encourage to keep a look out for this one when it hits shelves in March! ...more

    Damn. If you need some hardcore feminist rage in action--and who doesn't?--this book is GOLD.

  • J. Taylor

    Finally another book from the author of Far from You, about damm time, like four years since this is coming out 2018. Also, what an amazing premise? Need it now.

    Southern Gothic is my jam and Barbed Wire Heart sounded right up my alley. Of course, when you compare anything to Winter’s Bone I’m even more on board. Harley McKenna’s character did in fact, read a lot like Ree Dolly with her badass nature and overall inability to sit on the sidelines letting someone else handle business. It’s an admirable quality and I’m quite fond of this characteristic in female characters. For some reason though, something about the characters, the atmosphere, and

    The feminist Breaking Bad we all needed.

    I read almost half of this and I am calling it quits. I absolutely loved this author's YA debut, Far From You. But this book was a big hot mess and not for me at all.

    Everything felt forced. The violence, the drama, the abuse, the explosions and stabbings all felt put there just for the sake of having it in there. In my opinion it went too far. Look, I read a book about a drug lord carving his initials into the love interest's back, so I can handle violence. But the author must do a convincing j

    I drag the knife up his chest to his throat. "Now here..." I tap the blade against his neck. His Adam's apple bobs frantically as his breath stutters in the back of his throat. "Here's the sweet spot. Fast, efficient. You drown in your own blood for a little while, but it doesn't hurt as much as, say, getting gutted." I smile at him, my sweet smile, like I'm handling him some lemonade at Youth Group. "So which one is it gonna be, Tripp?"


    It was also all over the place to the point where it almost didn't have a plot. It flips back and forth from past to present, but all the flashback scenes are from different years, so Harley is all different ages and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to why each scene is placed where it is which makes it read disjointed and meandering. Then twists will come out of nowhere, but there's like zero foreshadowing.

    I just wasn't impressed. It is a RESOUNDING DNF. ...more

  • Traci

    This novel made me question the way I define "good people" . I don't know that the main charachter, Harley, could be described as typically good. Tess Sharpe brings to life a world that I know nothing about. Her protagonist, Harley is a strong intelligent woman raised by the leader of a major meth ring. Through the use of alternating past and present chapters the reader gains more insite into Harleys motives than than they do into most characters in most novels.

    I was surprised by how much I enj
