Whatever the case, part of me loved that he could resist— even if it put me in more trouble. Maybe it made me a masochist, but the fact that we could carry on a conversation without his gaze going blank made me happy. Finally, I’m heard.This was such a cool idea for a book! We have the real life vibe of the 1920's with the flappers and slang, making it feel very authentic and like I was reading a historical fiction. And then we have the creepy, twisty parts of the underground world of monsters (all varieties, be it sirens, cyclops, vampires, minotaurs and all other kinds of intense beasties) seamlessly meshed with history. The world building in this story was hands down my favorite part of the book, the layers of complexity in this underground world where liquor is illegal, girls are looking for freedom, and mob bosses rule- but they might not be human. Roaring is my second read from this author and I love how she can make such intense worlds and characters within the pages of a single book, you can pick this up and enjoy a complete story with a satisfying conclusion and a great love story. Also expect action/danger as well as some surprising twists as you get lost in this book. I enjoy that this wrapped everything up and left me with no loose ends, but I will say that I would love for her to someday return to this secret monster underground and write another book in this world. Pick this up if you enjoy monsters, fights, historical fiction, unlikely heroes saving the day and most of all romance.
