Now available on


From USA Today bestselling author A. Zavarelli comes an enemies to lovers romance full of blackmail, emotional twists, and explosive chemistry.

From the shadows, I’ve tracked her every move.

I was just supposed to watch her. But now, I can’t stop.

She’s my obsession. My addiction. My poison.

Watching her isn’t enough.

The savage in me won’t be satisfied until I take her and make her mine.

One taste and I’m hooked. Too bad for her… I’m never letting her go.


Stalked. Hunted. Captured.

He took me from my life and locked me away in his compound.

The ex-con. The big bad biker. Inked, bearded, and inhumanely sized.

And yet, every time he looks at me, I melt.

This broken beast hides demons behind those brutal eyes. I hate him… and I crave him. His touch, his words, his lips.

When my enemies come for me, he vows to protect me as long as I do what he says. I’ll be secure in this prison he created for me.

But who will protect me from him?

Convict is a full length standalone within the Sin City Series and has a complete ending.


When I first started reading Convict I was reading and like I swear I know these character already. Birdie and her sister Gypsy and all that. I was so confused as I was like wait...this is a new story so how do I know them already?? Then I felt a bit stupid when I looked it up and it was book two and so of course it seemed familiar as I did meet them in the first book in the series! Book one was Gypsy and Lucian's story and this is the story of her sister Birdie and Ace.

Oh, Birdie and Ace. Two people who think they don't/can't/won't be able to have a relationship because of their past and their ginormous baggage. But there was just something there between them from the very first. Birdie is not used to wanting guys. She sees them as marks and something that she can use to help her try and survive when her past comes calling. People she can use to try and get her freedom. And Ace doesn't think he is capable of loving someone. Of having that relationship because of what happened to him in his youth. Because of his demons and issues he has because of all that. But Birdie calls to him and him to her. She likes him, she wants him, but she doesn't know why. And he wants her though he knows she can't have her.

These two were really sweet together. They don't have a smooth ride, there are a lot of bumps along the way, but they were wonderful to read. With all of their issues and insecurities it can take a little while to work everything out, to figure out how they feel and what is happening between them, but they were fun to read. Ace would do anything to keep Birdie safe and when her past really catches up with her there is nothing he wouldn't do to save her. And her him which was so sweet to see. If you read book one then you know the world already, you know some of the stuff that has happened. If not then jump right on in and fall in love with Birdie and Ace.
