Publisher's Summary

Once the most feared member of an Italian Mafia crime family, Gabriel Moretti returns to New York at the request of his mentor, Russian crime boss Vasily Tarasov. Vasily needs someone he can trust in Seattle to protect his estranged daughter, Eva Jacobs, while he avenges the murder of the young woman’s mother. Gabriel is unstoppable in a fight, whether he’s using fists, blades, or bullets; but innocent, onyx-haired Eva may just be the most dangerous - and beautiful - thing he’s come up against.
Intense sparks fly between the two, tempting Gabriel to mix business with pleasure while in the Emerald City. But once word gets around that Gabriel has shown up in New York, Stefano - his vengeful brother and the de facto head of the family - decides that Eva is the key to ending the feud between them... permanently.
In this pulse-pounding romantic thriller set against the backdrop of New York City’s storied underworld, loyalties will be tested, secrets will be told, and mob justice will be served.

Good Story Good Narration!

This was a good story. I really enjoyed it. The hero was awesome, tall, sexy and handsome. I thought this being a Mobster type of book it was going to be more violent and full of erotica sex. It was not! It was well written not gory or erotica sex. There is sex but it is well written sex.

I liked the heroine as well. She was a strong character. Only one stupid decision made by her. But of course there always has to be at least one, which I am okay with. Its when there are many many TSTL moments.

I liked the story line and plot. There is lots of dialogue throughout the entire book. (I love lots of dialogue)

As for the narrator he did a very very good job. Everyone had their own distinct voice including the accents, and he did a very good job on the female characters. I will listen to him again for sure. (Well actually I am, because I just got the second book in the series)

I have to say this book and the next are fantastic deals if you are a KU subscriber. Both are free read free listen. Yes totally worth it!

I really liked the book, however, it was difficult to love it. In my opinion it could have been more detailed especially for being the first book in what appears to be a long series given the amount of sub-main characters involved, even if it had to be quite a bit longer than is comfortable for most listeners.

I thought the voices for the men were excellent, especially Gabriel's voice and the variety of accents; however, Eva's voice was less than stellar and Nico's voice while much better than Eva's was still lacking. (Practice makes perfect I guess).

I thought the ending was great and I liked that it was not a cliffhanger but did leave the door open for other characters' stories, i.e. Vincent.
