Dark, gritty and full of action and drama the whole way through. This is a compelling read. This is only the second book that I have read in this series and I feel that it can be read as a standalone as well as a continuation of the series. I do intend to read the whole series. 

Thank you to Netgalley for my copy.

The Tyler's #6

Freddie and Paul have just been released from prison. Anna had stepped in to take over Freddie's businesses while he was away. But now he's back home, there's a rift between them that's not going to be easy to repair. Anna had also taken care of Ethan, Freddie's son. There's also the Russian gangster who is on a mission to take down the Tyler's empire and run it for himself.

What a fantastic series this is. Freddie, Paul, Anna and Tanya are the main characters in this series and you can't help but like them. Freddie and Anna are the perfect couple but their time apart has drove a wedge between them. Anna is reluctant to hand back the businesses. I was on the edge of my seat whilst reading this book. There were lots of twists I never saw coming. Emma Tallon knows how to write an exciting and gripping page turner then leaves you with a cliff hanger. How  naughty is that! I hate a cliff hanger! I need to know what happened now! Please Emma, don't make us wait too long.

I would like to thank NetGalley, Bookouture and the author Emma Tallon for my ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Fearless Girl is the sixth instalment of this gritty gangland series, however, it is not necessary to have read the previous books in order to understand or enjoy this as Ms Tallon gives plenty of background for new readers. That being said, this series is so damn good you will likely want to go back and read the others. Freddie and Paul Tyler have been incarcerated for almost three years for drug possession and are about to be released. They are hoping that those left in charge of their many business ventures have managed to keep the money rolling in. But much has changed since they were the helm of their empire and Freddie’s on-off girlfriend, Anna, feels she has kept the businesses afloat almost singlehandedly and does not want to hand the power back over to Freddie. After taking a look at the books he believes the discrepancies mean Anna and been skimming money from the businesses and doesn't think he can trust her any longer because of it. Not only that but a Russian mobster is zeroing in on the Tyler’s turf and is hellbent on taking over Soho so they must watch their backs.

This is an absolutely riveting and explosive gangland tale with so much tension and suspense throughout. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and raced through it in a single sitting. The animosity and lack of trust between Anna and Freddie created a lot of excitement and had my heart thumping as you can sense the volatility. There is plenty of the action we have come to expect from Tallon and the way it is written grabs and grips you from the first few pages before spitting you out at the very end. One of the standout aspects of this book (and series) is that despite the fact that the cast of characters is full of criminals who reside in the murky London underworld you can't help but be engaged by them and like them as people who are loyal to a fault when it comes to family. It's an addictive and thoroughly absorbing and gritty read with plenty going on to keep you captivated. This is often gruesome and grisly with many twists and turns and a cliffhanger conclusion that has you pining for the next book. Highly recommended. Many thanks to Bookouture for an ARC.

The Tyler’s are back in this the 6th book in the series, it was great to be back with Anna and Tanya, Freddie, Paul, Molly and all the gang
Although this is the 6th in the series it can be read and enjoyed as a stand alone

The Tyler’s are trying to ‘re-convene’ as brothers Freddie and Paul leave prison and expect to re take over the business that Anna ( Freddie’s ex,ish! ) has been running, Anna however has other ideas and has no intention of giving anything up

However the Russian’s are coming and about to try and take more of a stake in London and its going to cause wars, murder and chaos

And then, a new character, the wonderful Josephine ( the whorehouse Manager ) makes a decision that will change everyone’s lives, especially hers

Full of gangland action and wonderful writing that lovers of this series have come to relish this book delivers 100% in all it set’s out to be

Loved it

10/10

This series keeps getting better and better.
3 years ago Freddie and his brother were sent to prison and they are now getting out. Freddie is head king pin in London and now that he is out he is ready to get back to his business. While he was locked up his ex, Anna, took over and is not ready to let go. She still wants some say in the business. Anna has become cold since taking over and is not the same person she was. Can these 2 get past what has happened and find themselves back to each other. That was all I wanted to know through the whole book. Emma Tallon makes you love these characters despite their businesses. They take care of family and those that work for them and are loyal. I always hate when I have to wait for a new book to come out.
Thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for the ARC.

Another fantastic book in this highly addictive series. 
I love each and every one of the main characters and picking up this series is like catching up with old friends. 
Freddie and Paul have served their time, and whilst they were inside Anna and Tanya have been running the businesses. They’ve also been there for Ethan, who needed some stability. 
Anna has changed over the two and half years that Freddie was inside and she’s had to make some tough decisions. She’s not sure of her feelings when he comes out and so they kind of give each other some space for a while. 
Freddie then makes a discovery and is so furious with Anna, that he can’t see past it. 
This leads to even more tension between the two of them and others are worried for their future. 
Freddie and the team have a new enemy on their radar and after a very close call, they’re out for revenge against the Russian mobster. 
There is so much happening in this book that I didn’t want to put it down as I just wanted to know what happened next. 
This is a gritty, addictive gangland crime thriller which I highly recommend. Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book.

Whenever I hear Emma Tallon has a new book coming out in this brilliant gangland crime thriller, I don’t even need to read the blurb as there is no doubt in my eye that it’ll be a fantastic read.   So I eagerly started this latest book and yes it was absolutely fantastic.  I devoured this book in a few days and loved the story and all the characters.  Just brilliant.

Another instalment in this series!  At the end of the last book the police had stormed Thea’s funeral to arrest Freddie and Paul Tyler on drugs charges.  This book starts 3 years on during lead up to their long awaited release from prison.  Many things have changed in their absence namely Anna having taken control of their underworld business and having sole custody of Freddie’s son, Ethan.

Many tensions are borne out as Anna is unwilling to just hand over her reign over the businesses and both are questioning if they are still in love with each other.  Throw into the mix a Russian gangster who is determined to topple the Tyler’s and take everything for himself.

I’ve had the pleasure of reading all this series and look forward to the next!  Many thanks to the publishers and netgalley for the advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.

I’d like to thank Bookouture and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read ‘Fearless Girl’ by Emma Tallon in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Freddie and Paul Tyler have been in prison for nearly three years for the possession of drugs and when they’re released they expect their businesses in London, legal and illegal, to be waiting for them.  But Freddie’s girlfriend Anna Davis has taken over the running of them and doesn’t intend to be shunted to one side and lose control of what she’s worked hard for.  During their absence Russian mobster Aleksai and his firm have moved into parts of Soho and although Anna’s kept them at a distance they plan to destroy the Tylers and take over their business.  Is this the end of the Tyler dynasty?

‘Fearless Girl’ is another action-packed instalment in the story of gangsters Freddie and Paul Tyler together with Anna, Tanya and Freddie’s son Ethan, and is a great improvement on the previous one.  I have more understanding of how each character fits into the family and the story, whilst gruesome and bloodthirsty, is also exciting with drama, suspense, and twists and turns, and the final cliffhanger has left me wanting more.

It just keeps getting better this series! It seems like I waited so long to delve back into the life's of the Tyler's. 

Freddie and Paul are out of prison and ready to take back the reigns of the London underworld once more but as always there's always someone in the background ready to cause trouble.

Another fantastic installment of this absolutely brilliant gangland thriller! I can't even describe how much I love these books.

I love this continuing gangland story about Anna and Freddie.   

With Freddie Tyler and his brother Paul being in prison Anna Davis, his girlfriend has been left in sole charge of his group of men, businesses and money, but more importantly his young son Ethan with whom she adores as if he is her own.  She has managed brilliantly even introducing some added benefits. Now they are out and things are about to change.  Their relationship which was once so close and loving is now volatile and has lost its trust. Anna still wants to be a part of the operation, but will Freddie have other ideas?
With the threat of a Russian gangland boss trying to take over their turf things turn nasty and they have a battle on their hands.

Emma Tallon certainly knows how to keep her readers entertained and on the edge of their seats. Such a thrilling, excellent book, I can't wait to read the next instalment. I hope we don't have to wait too long.
Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read and review this book xx

Just when I thought nothing could top the last read in this series... this book does!

Freddie and his brother, Paul, are at the end of their prison sentence. After two and a half years, has anything on the outside changed?

Freddie pictures everything to be about the same yet he worries about his son and Anna - have their feelings towards Freddie been altered?

Anna, a tough woman, took over Freddie's business in his absence. Is she willing to give it up just like that? Will she still even love Freddie? Anna is not sure of anything - yet her life had changed a lot since Freddie and Paul were sent to prison...

A superb read! This can be read as a standalone - but why not read the entire series...

An interesting, quick read that grips your attention throughout!

6 stars

Many Thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for a GREAT READ!!!

I am still bouncing up and down. I just want to shout it from the rooftops how totally marvelous this book is!

Reading this series is absolute heaven. You not only think all your Christmases have come at once, it's actually really happening.

It's a gangland series and each and every story is a priceless jewel. 

I often like main characters in books, but I fell deeply in love with Freddie and the feeling is still growing. I will be in deep mourning when I will be forced to say goodbye to him. I really really really hope the author still has buckets of inspiration for another big pile of sequels.

Freddie is not the only great protagonist. The author has created a whole bunch of steely key players, but under this rock-hard exterior there is a warm heart that beats full of love for and loyalty to their 'family'. 

I just finished the book, but am already counting down to the next one. Keep them coming, please. 5 stars.

Thank you, Emma Tallon and Bookouture.

Fearless Girl is the sixth book in the Freddie Tyler and Anna Davies series of books and i would have to say this one is every bit as good as the other 5.After coming out of prison Freddie and Paul find themselves up against a Russian gangster who is out to oust Freddie from his position as king of the London underworld,A lot has changed since they were last on the the outside not least Anna who took over the running of the business's in Freddie's absence and is now viewed by Freddie with suspicion has he finds out what Anna has been up to.Once again all the same characters are here to share in Freddie's and Anna's tale and Emma Tallon has again proved she is up there with best when it comes to this genre.A 5 star masterpiece ! I would say if you want to enjoy this series of books to its fullest i would start at the beginning and work you way through them,that way you will get a sense of all the characters and background.

Wow Emma Tallon has done it again. With this next episode in the Tyler series. This is a brilliant read.
It’s been three years since Freddie Tyler has been in prison with his brother Paul. Since he has been gone. Anna has taken over the reins and run the businesses and has taken care of his son Ethan. Taken care of him like he was her own. She loves him and will do anything for him. Ethan is a little bit nervous of this father coming home but, Anna reassures him everything is alright. Even though she herself is apprehensive. Freddie is going to want to have his businesses back but, Anna is not happy to just give them back. She still wants to be part of the businesses and help run them. 
So, when Freddie comes back things are not straightforward, and he starts unravelling the hard work Anna has done.  Also, there is another gangster in town, that wants to get in on the Tyler’s turf.
This is another action packed, exciting, thrilling read from Emma Tallon. She does not disappoint. The author knows how to write a story and keep it fresh for each episode and I love how she teases you will a little snippet of what is going to in the next episode, right at the end. I loved it.

Wow I definitely wasn’t expecting a volatile and explosive read. The publishers are spot on, if you’re a Martina Cole fan you will absolutely love this book. I didn’t realise that this was part of a series, it has made me add other books by this author to my increasing TBR list.

Freddie has been in prison for three years, and Anna has been running the businesses in Fearless Girl by Emma Tallon. This is the fifth installment in the Tyler Family series. Anna isn’t as tough as Freddie, and a Russian mob has moved into parts of the Tyler territory during Freddie’s prison term. Anna has a new enterprise that Freddie is opposed to, and the animosity is evident. When Freddie looks at the books, he sees some discrepancies and is suspicious that Anna may be skimming from the family. The tension is palpable, and so is the suspense; readers want Anna and Freddie to have the relationship they had before prison, and it looks like it isn’t to be. Anna has been mother to Freddie’s son, and loves motherhood; Freddie respects the excellent job she has done with his son, but is jealous of how she has taken over; her leadership style is different from his and this causes some problems.

There is more profanity in this novel than is in the previous novels in the series, and an unnecessary graphic sexual episode. This is disappointing, since prior to this, the novels were suitable for all readers. Hopefully, Tallon will go back to her previous style because these novels are fascinating and her characters are well-developed so that readers love them even though they are mob. She has a knack for telling a believable story, and the novels are edge-of-the-seat. This novel is also, and fans of the series won’t want to miss it. Those who haven’t read the previous novels may not appreciate all that has happened before, and definitely should read them before this one, since it’s quite different from the others. Highly recommended for fans of the series.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.

This was an incredible crime thriller that drew me in and never let go. I felt emotionally invested in the characters’  lives and couldn’t stop reading.

Another brilliant book by Emma Tallon. I just love Anna & Freddie and the interaction between them. The gritty storyline of the underworld that they live in is just so easily readable that I read through the books so quick I’m left disappointed at the end knowing I’ve got to wait a while for the next instalment. The book certainly didn’t disappoint though. It’s best to read the series from the beginning so you can get the background of the characters, you won’t be disappointed. Bring on the next book!!
