Blurb

Fix Marcosa is at war.

The battlefield: New York City.

He knows every street like the back of his hand. The darkened alleyways and back streets conceal secrets only he knows.

Somewhere out there, an unknown element is threatening the life of the woman he loves.

Fix doesn’t mind shedding a little blood to get protect those close to him, though.

He doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty.

And when he goes to war…he sure as hell doesn’t lose.

Sera Lafferty knows what it’s like to run.

She’s been running her whole damn life.

With death now looming over her, it seems as though she must run again if she wants to survive.

The dark, storm-kissed stranger she met in a motel room offers another solution, however.

Fix is a challenge. An enigma. A savage force of nature. He will be her shield against the coming darkness, if only she will let him.

But can she trust the tortured ex-priest to keep her safe?

Should she run from New York as fast as possible?

Or should she stand and fight?

Prepare for blood.

Prepare for betrayal.

Prepare for war.Freaks is the final installment of the Dirty Nasty Freaks series.

My Review

I’m not new to the dark and messed up worlds that Callie Hart creates nor am I unaware of the fact that her male characters aren’t guys that someone would want to bring home to meet her family, but I also am beyond aware that, that doesn’t stop Hart’s heroines from finding a bit of lightness amidst the darkness that surrounds these ‘bad’ guys and keeps them holding on to that fact despite the jacked up shit they become a part of and witness due to their connection to these broody anti-heroes.

From the beginning, Callie Hart’s Dirty Nasty Freaks series has been one hell of a fucked up ride, and I, for one, have absolutely LOVED every minute of it.

In Dirty, Felix “Fix” Marcosa and Sera Lafferty are on opposite sides, and despite their growing attraction and the fact that they dirtied each other up in deliciously deviant ways, Fix still has a contract to complete and what that means for the two of them plays out throughout the course of the text.

In Nasty, the already complicated situation between Fix and Sera turns even more dangerous, placing them both in dire circumstances because not only does Fix renege on his objective, but he also creates a new one, leaving Fix and Sera in a rather precarious position with those on the outside despite the bond that they are clearly forming.

But nothing could have prepared me for the events that occur in Freaks…the show downs that both Fix and Sera  must endure…the revelations that drive them to face their pasts and work through them in order to have a much different future…the games that they’re forced to play despite the fact that they might not win. There is so much information and turmoil for Fix and Sera to sift through that it almost seems unconquerable, but I learned earlier on in this series that these two characters are made of firmer stuff and that when their backs are against the wall that’s when readers and other characters see what makes Fix and Sera survivors.

Like Zeth Mayfair, Felix Marcosa breaks the mold when it comes to anti-heroes. He is one badass assassin whose fighting skills, consistent rage and lone wolf status matches up perfectly to Callie Hart’s other alpha male, but where Fix differs from Zeth is in his conscience…in his killer’s code regardless of how contradictory it sounds…in the fact that his heart still somewhat guides him and there’s a reason to why he kills the people that he does. But all of this doesn’t necessarily mean that Fix is better than Zeth; it just means that Hart has created two fantastically complex men who readers can’t help but love.

Sera Lafferty proves just how strong of a person she is throughout the course of the entire series, but it isn’t until she lays herself bare to Fix about her past and endures some intense and life altering situations that would destroy most people that she truly understands who she is and what she’s capable of and that’s what makes her a kickass heroine and Fix’s perfect partner. 

I’m not going to give away anything that happens in the final book of the series, but I do have to say that I never expected it to be the person who Hart reveals is  behind the contract for Sera’s death nor did I anticipate how everything would be tied together in a way that brings everything full circle, not only for Sera and Fix but also for avid fans of Callie Hart, and that statement will make much more sense at the conclusion of Freaks.
