  • Jessie  (Ageless Pages Reviews)

    A brash and dark story that doesn’t skimp on violence and dark emotions. Harley is a one-woman assault team and reckons with her past in order to carve out her future.

  • 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

    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

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

    A super special thank you goes out to Tess Sharpe for sending me a physical arc copy of this book. I'm sorry it's so late and you are so amazing! All thoughts and opinions are my own! Any quotes used come from an arc and may not be in the final version.

    BARBED WIRE HEART is the feminist thriller I didn't know I'd been waiting for. I read it in two days because I couldn't put it down. Propulsive & gritty, Harley McKenna's world of North County will take your breath away. & Harley herself is a badass, often conflicted, but tremendous protagonist – the action will keep you flipping pages, but Harley will have you reading carefully (& re-reading!)

  • Sara

    Thanks to Grand Central Publishing for the ARC. Couldn’t put this down, read it in one day. Some of the most compelling characters I’ve met in a long time!!!
