    This Book Packs A Punch

    Book Review (ARC)
    That’s How I Roll is an excellent book. Esau and Tory are brothers, born of an incestuous relationship between their father and sister. They are perfect compliments of each other. Tory has superhuman strength, but is mentally slow, while Esau has a genius IQ, but is confined to a wheelchair due to spina bifida. In an effort to protect his brother and ensure his future safety, Esau takes to building bombs and provides his services to rival mobs in the area. It’s only a matter of time until Esau finds himself on death row. It is from here that he reveals to the reader that he has one last trick he has up his sleeve.

    This book packs a punch. I didn’t quite know how to feel about Esau most of the time because he’s indirectly killing many people just to protect his brother, but I still hoped he and his brother would come out on top. Then Esau lands himself in jail where he’s no longer going to be able to protect him anyway – at least not personally – so that was a little disappointing. I just think it’s a really cool idea for a story; I love that there’s no real hero and everyone has blood on their hands. The relationship between Esau and Tory’s father and sister is creepy, though. I had a hard time with that bit, but only because it’s so disgusting to imagine. Overall, the characters were really well-written and relatable, even though the circumstances are far from normal. That’s How I Roll is one of the better books that I’ve read in a while and I highly recommend it to anyone who’s into mystery/suspense novels. I wish that I had an actual copy of this book, so I could read it again right now.
