TWO CHILDHOOD FRIENDS
Best friends Tommy Boyle and Scratch always had each other’s backs. Dragged up in care, and cruelly betrayed by everyone they trusted, they made a pact to fight their way out of the gutter – together.
TWO SIDES OF THE LAW
Old loyalties die hard on the streets of London. Tommy throws his lot in with the notorious Darling family – even if it means leaving Scratch to the wolves. She’s destined for a different path, reinventing herself as copper Kim Regan.
ONE DEADLY SHOWDOWN
Now they’re on opposite sides of the law. Running Operation Sting, Kim will rip the heart out of the Darling’s empire – and only her old pal Tommy stands in her way.
As gritty and dangerous as the London streets in which it’s set, this is No.1 bestseller Kimberley Chambers at her best. Get ready for a shocking read with a STING in the tail . . .
The new, explosive, gritty read from one of my all time fav authors. This book is one I have been looking forward to since I closed the pages on the last book this author wrote.
OMG.... Well worth the wait, but come on! Did I really expect anything other than perfection.
What an OH my GAWDDDD read.....
Loved it from the opening pages. I was fooled for a page or two as I thought this was going to be quite a tame read, It wasn't. It was what we have all come to know as ' typical Chambers'
Put your feet up, clear your diary and get ready for the ride of your life.
Tommy Boyle didn't have the best start in life, losing his mother early in his life set a path for Tommy. A path in which he'd grow up having to make his own choices and take on the world.
When Tommy is forced to live in a children's home it's hard to see how life for a young boy can be. The troubles that a young life has to go through. Yet no matter what troubles Tommy seems to have friendships, yet can friendship hold the test of time?
This book is packed with some amazing characters, Tommy was certainly one of my favorite, a character that was not only likeable but also believable. His childhood girlfriend Scratch was another brilliant character, following their mixed up lives took me as a read on an emotional roller coaster.
What Danny Darling becomes friends with Tommy, neither of them know what their future is going to hold. If they'd had a glimpse of it, would they have lived their lives so differently.
It's such a brilliant book, but such a difficult book to write down your thoughts about. There is so much I could, and want to say but I can't risk spoiling anything for other readers, so this is where the waffle stops. BUY IT, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!
A first class page turner for sure, any KC fan will love this book.
Why did I keep expecting one of the Butlers to pop up somewhere. lol
Life is what you make of it.
Thrilled to be on this Blog Tour.

If you love Martina Cole, Kimberley Chambers, Casey Kelleher and Jessie Keane, you’ll love Boss Girl.
You’ll do anything to save your family, even kill for them…
Anna Davis is under pressure. With her West End nightclub packed full every night and the opening of another club just around the corner, she knows she can’t take her eye off the ball.
Her boyfriend Freddie Tyler practically owns London’s West End and he’s got a big deal on – one that could make the Tylers the most powerful family in London. He’s going into business with crime boss Frank Gambino. But visiting Anna at work one night, Gambino tells her he’ll only sign the deal with Freddie on one condition – that she hands over Club Anya to him.
With tension growing between Anna and Freddie, her mind is on other things. She doesn’t notice that someone is watching her every move. She doesn’t realise just how much danger she’s in.
When one night she doesn’t return home, Freddie is beside himself with worry. And as he races to save Anna, one thing is for sure – he’ll get back the girl he loves. Even if it means taking down the whole of the London underworld to find her…
My thanks to @Bookouture and @Netgalley for the Ecopy ARC of this book.
Well I have to say I was thrilled to be reading this book. I absolutely loved Runaway Girl and Dangerous Girl, so I was eager to get back in to the lives of the characters I've been getting to know, and what characters they are. Emma certainly has a knack of creating memorable characters. Her writing style is unique, being dragged in to the story and pulled along before you are left absolutely breathless at the end. Emma is way up there now amongst the best authors of this genre and without even knowing the title or reading the blurb Emma is one of those authors for me now, who no matter what the book is, I will need to read it. It's hard when you read so many books to keep getting something different, something fresh. This author certainly manages it and some more besides. I think by now you might have guessed I loved this book.
I really don't want to be giving to much away as far as the story goes, I really don't want to spoil the enjoyment for this book for anyone. Because believe me, this is one read you will want to sit and devour without any spoilers.
Back in the lives of Anna, Freddie and Tanya. Anna having fled a bad relationship and starting over again became very good friends and business partners with Tanya. Between them they manage their clubs. Freddie is Anna's boyfriend who is a big part in the London criminal underworld.
Having become successful in what she does and with all she has been through Anna is normally quite guarded around friendships and who she can trust, needing to keep one step ahead or things can go very wrong. Things go very wrong for Anna and it's down to Freddie to put them right. Is it to late, has Anna let her guard down maybe just a little to much. Who can and who should she trust?
This is not your typical London Gangster, crime type book, this is one of the best. Fast paced, full of action, enough to keep you on your toes and wanting more, and then some more...
Loved how this book ended, it certainly leaves you knowing that there is more to come, I for one cannot wait...
These books could be read as standalones, but seriously to get the full back history of the characters and to fully appreciate them, they really would be better read in order.
First class read, had me hooked and is going on my 2019 Must Reads list!
Emma Tallon is a British, gritty crime writer, adventurer, Londoner and mother to a young son. Starting her career a few years ago as a ghostwriter, Emma crafted some of the most adventurous, edgy and heart-wrenching stories you can find on the shelves today.
In March 2017 Emma stepped out of the literary shadows and self-published her first book, Life Game. The book was an instant success, the results far exceeding anything she had expected. As news of Life Games popularity spread, she joined forces with W.F.Howes and the audiobook was launched in October 2017.
In December 2017, Emma signed a three book deal with publishers Bookouture. This included Life Game which was changed, re-edited and re-released as Runaway Girl.
Drawing inspiration for her books from a mixture of her own observations and an active imagination, the characters Emma paints are colourful and larger than life. Her story lines are an interesting recipe of deep emotion and violent grit, that keep her readers engrossed.
With two more books in the works for this series already, Emma has many more stories planned out for the future.
