Publisher's Summary

The thrilling follow-up to the best-selling Mafia romance.
Antonio is a killer. He's beautiful and educated, a prodigy of a thief, and as violent a badass as ever came off the boat from Napoli. Theresa knows it, but that doesn't stop her from getting emotionally and physically entangled with him, and this is how she gets it in her head that she can protect him. But it's not her job to save him, and she's just not getting that. Every time she tries to protect him, she practically gets him killed, and the tighter he grips her, the more dangerous she becomes. It's almost as if protecting her the way he does is the one thing he should stop. As if the only way he's ever going to find a moment's peace is to just embrace her as a partner rather than a defenseless creature. But he'd never do that. Not this violent badass.
WARNING: This book contains delicious sex scenes with a hot man dirty talking in Italian; women handling firearms and explosives; and scenes of violence with a crystal Virgin Mary cigarette lighter.

I didn't understand Theresa for most of this book. In the first book she starts out attracted but not really interested because she is still in love with her x who cheated on her and she isn't over him. Eventually her sexual attraction lets her explore her sexual interest in Antonio and suddenly she is in love with him. She is so prim she can't stand and won't use cuss words. She thinks Antonio does t give himself enough credit. Next thing you know she is calling him filth and garbage and telling him to hurt her using foul language left and right. Falling in love with someone doesn't turn you into the opposite of what and who you are. It's very irritating and made me dislike this portion of the story.

- Terri F "Love to read and I am really enjoying audible. Fantasy and sci fi are my faves but I also enjoy period novels and historical fiction."

The drama and deliciousness get hotter and hotter!

What made the experience of listening to Ruin the most enjoyable?

Brian Patillo as Antonio Spinelli! His authentic Italian accent offered a deeper appreciation of Antonio's character. Mindy did a phenomenal job as Antonio as well!

What did you like best about this story?

As a reader, I loved the growth between the Capo and his Contessa. Their relationship evolved so much in this second installment. I absolutely love and agree a gazillion percent of Theresa submitting to her Capo!

What does Brian Pallino and Mindy Kennedy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The duo definitely bought the book to life! I felt as if I rushed through the book because I wanted to know what happened. With the audio I could savor the relationship between the Capo and his Contessa. I experienced every wonder and experience with them as it happened. Brian and Mindy's words! It's beyond phenomenal!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely not! Like fine wine this story is meant to be savored and consumed leisurely.

Any additional comments?

I cannot wait until book 3 is on audio! I absolutely adore this series and the narrators!
