Book Description

For college student Emily Sheppard, the thought of spending a summer alone in New York is much more preferable than spending it in France with her parents. Just completing her freshman year at Callister University, Emily faces a quiet summer in the city slums, supporting herself by working at the campus library.

During one of her jogs through the nearby cemetery while visiting her brother Bill’s grave, Emily witnesses a brutal killing—and then she blacks out. When Emily regains consciousness, she realizes she’s been kidnapped by a young crime boss and his gang. She is hurled into a secret underworld, wondering why she is still alive and for how long.

Held captive in rural Vermont, she tries to make sense of her situation and what it means. While uncovering secrets about her brother and his untimely death, Emily falls in love with her very rich and very dangerous captor, twenty-six-year-old Cameron. She understands it’s a forbidden love and one that won’t allow her to return to her previous life. But love may not be enough to save Emily when no one even knows she is missing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to worry--a SEQUEL is in the works! May 4, 2012
By M
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved every word of this story! The ending was pure agony, (but SO GOOD) I couldn't believe that the author would leave things the way they were. Good news, I looked up Ms. Hockley's tumblr blog (Google it) and she does mention a few entries down that she is currently working on the next book in this series. I can't wait. Congratulations to Ms. Hockley on such an amazing debut novel, I'm now a loyal fan. : )

5.0 out of 5 stars Crow's Row April 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first story that I have read by the author. I wasn't sure what to expect but the product description piqued my interest. I love reading books that have the main character (H) being an alpha male crime boss and the heroine being his captive. Crow's Row certainly did not disappoint.

The story took a short time to hook me but once I passed the 10 percent mark on my Kindle the story picked up and didn't stop until the end. I stayed up very late a couple of nights in a row saying to myself, "I'll just read one more chapter."

I liked how the story ended. The author neatly tied everything up but at the same time left an opening for a possible sequel. Crow's Row didn't leave me hanging but if a sequel is written I will definitely be buying it.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHERE IS THE SEQUEL!!!??? May 5, 2012
By Beth
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was amazing. Gut wrenching love story. You knew the entire time what was inevitably going to happen in the end, but even knowing that I am still devastated. My stomach hurts, this book was so captivating. It drew me in and I lived inside this book the entire time I was reading it. NOW WHERE THE %$#& IS THE SEQUEL????!!!!

After I saw all the positive comments for Crow`s Row, I was excited to read the book. I can only assume, after reading the novel, that most of the reviewers were under 21.

I have no fault with the writing or story premise, but the juvenile nature of the "romance" and simplistic view of the life of a drug lord, described at one point as one of the most powerful in the country, is almost laughable.

Here we have a 26 year old drug lord who is barely able to make eye contact with the woman he supposedly loves and blushes repeatedly.

While motorcycle romances are almost too gritty in their reality (how could anyone love a man this bad), the characters in this are overly sanitized. Even the love scene has been washed over.

I finished the book, but won`t bother finding out what happens in the sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Is AMAZING!!!!!! February 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Hockley has written a riveting love story. I was captivated from the very beginning and loved every minute of this novel, even the ending, though it angered me and even made me cry. Leaving my emotions raw, Hockley has created a very powerful novel, and though the male lead, Cameron, is a crime boss, making tough decisions that occasionally end in the death of someone, he's hard not to like.

It felt like an entire lifetime passed as I read. Hockley has really fleshed out her characters, giving the reader a glimpse into their very souls, and I too found myself falling in love with Cameron. I loved the pacing of the novel, and Hockley's ability to fit all the pieces of the story together in such a perfect way, though the ending... was like a knife in the gut.

It's not a mystery novel, but there is much suspense within the pages of Crow's Row. Hockley presents different scenarios that made me feel as if the story would go one way, but then it went in an entirely different direction, causing me slight heart attacks as I feared for Emily, for Cameron, for Rocco... I had a lot of pent up fear as I read, sure that something terrible was about to happen. And it eventually did. Emily is, afterall, held captive by a crime boss, and though he's a dreamy, sexy character, he's also the head of a group of killers. Bad things are going to happen to some of the characters, and while I think I knew this is the back of my mind, it still shocked me and left me flabbergasted when they did.

There isn't a happy ending, per se, but it does work perfectly with the novel, though I hate to say it. The ending just about killed me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie Hockley is a master at her art! April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I have been a huge fan of Crow's Row since I first read it in June of 2012. The new reedited version is even better than the first if that's possible.

Crow's Row is my number one read and I can never get enough!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark, twisty perfection. April 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was nervous and anxious that I wouldn't love this book as much as I had two years ago when I first read it. Well, no worries... it was just as amazing, if not more so, the second time around. Dark, dangerous and yet still somehow romantic and full of sexual tension... Julie Hockley created a completely enthralling underworld of crime, intrigue and dark secrets. Absolutely loved it.

1.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars??? Not hardly August 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was completely excited about this book after reading the numerous 5 star ratings and various ravings about how the book is "utterly enchanting". That is utterly baloney. Don't waste your time.

This book in no way, shape or form has any real depiction of how a prisoner or drug lord would react to this situation. Now, I'm aware the plot is far fetched and somewhat of a fantasy scenario anyway....but I was willing to buy into that. I love a good far fetched plot with a dark, manly hero as much as the next girl. HOWEVER, there was no intrigue! No danger! No suspense....NOTHING. I mean, come on. At least make Cameron exciting and forbidding at first!

First of all, the heroine is too stupid for words. After getting kidnapped, she casually wakes up and scampers about her "prison" eating Captain Crunch with nary a thought to ever escaping. Pretty much, all Emily does throughout the book is lay about the house bemoaning her red hair and imagining to be in love with Cameron since he.....well actually there is no reason for her to be in love with him. They barely see each other, there is no sexual tension, they never discuss anything. It's completely ridiculous and most of all COMPLETELY UNEXCITING! Then you have Cameron over there in the corner acting like a complete pansy who can't form a complete sentence, much less head up a high end drug operation! Throughout the book, Emily just knows...oh, she just knows that he loves her. Really??? Cause, I didn't get any emotion from him showing any of the sort. They really just ran about throughout the course of the book having giant misunderstandings about each other that could have been easily solved. But, somehow the heroine's throat just closed up every time Cameron asked her a question. It's completely ludicrous.
