Publisher's Summary

One secret. Multiple casualties.
Everything Melody Callahan has ever been told about her past is a lie. Her father lied. Her husband lied. But like all secrets...they come out. Not only is her mother, Aviela, alive, but she won't stop until she tears down everything Liam and Melody have spent the past year building.
With new targets on their backs and the media focused on their family as the presidential election approaches, Liam and Melody must fight on two battlefronts. Melody is torn between being in love with Liam and wanting to kill him for lying to her. Being in love and showing love are two different things in her world. Liam wants to do anything to protect his family, even if that means hurting the people he loves.
Family is everything...but what happens when they're out for your blood? Everything they have been through is nothing compared to what is coming....

Best Mafia Book Ever-J.J. McAvoy Rocks!!!

I love Mafia books and this book did not disappoint! The story is very fast paced, exciting, thrilling, suspense, some humor (due to my warped sense of humor). No waste of time on inner turmoil and filler....Not In This Book.

In Chicago...there is an arranged marriage of the Melody Giovanni of the Italian mafia family and Liam Callahan of the Irish mafia family. The marriage is an effort to become the strongest crime family not only in the U.S., but Italy and Ireland. They fight with the Russian Mafia as well as smaller Irish and Italian mafia cells over control of territory and power.

Liam and Melody will physically fight (including Melody shooting Liam) then they have hot hot sex, this was humorous to me. Melody is pregnant for the second time, she was stabbed in the stomach in the first book and lost the baby. There is also turmoil, defiance, and betrayal within the Callahan mafia/crime family. We find out in this book who the moles and betrayers are and what they are up to. Listen to find out the yummy details.

There is violence...killing, torture then killing, like cutting of fingers, nail guns to the head, dismemberment, etc....but it is Mafia.

I couldn't stop listening and am now waiting for the 3rd book American Savages, it's available but not on Audible. When I found Ruthless People the first book, this book The Untouchables was also available so now I have to try and find other books to keep me occupied until American Savages arrives. There is also a novella: Declan + Coraline.

J. J. McAvoy is a new author for me and what a way to win me over! Jeff Hayes also gave an outstanding performance especially his Irish accent and in this book there was what I call true style conversation between male and female....I loved it.

This is a series I will listen to over and over so YES it is well worth the credit or $.

- Vicki "I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that a fiction book was not realistic...come on now 'really'"

Not as good as the first, unfortunately.

Would you try another book from J. J. McAvoy and/or Jeff Hays?

yes, I will probably continue the series.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was ok, but a little confusing. With all the lead up I thought it would be a little more insightful.

What aspect of Jeff Hays’s performance would you have changed?

I just didn't like that they changed the narration from the first book. I got used to the first narrator, who was fantastic, and all of the characters were original sounding and believable. In this book, it was hard to tell the voices apart, and it sounded like a person doing impressions, not like separate voices.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

More suspense. For some reason the flow of this book was just not as good as the first one.

Any additional comments?

Bring the original narrator back and WHERE ARE THE LAST TWO BOOKS?
