Being smart doesn't save you from terror and doesn't teach you how to live with it. You can't escape the mob. It's part of your existence....
Vito has grown up in the underworld of the mob. He has recently reached age 18. His family has been involved since the 30s. In 2014, the rules haven't changed much. What worked then, works now: power, violence, and loyalty.
Love isn't something you can control. As much as Vito, mobster enforcer, wish he could, he can't. And falling in love with someone who is close to jailbait age is even tougher. Vito bides his time and waits. For a hasty guy with limited self-control, it's difficult to curb his impulses.
At age 15, Erin just wants to forget. Erin's world came crashing down when she learned her family was not what they seemed. She's been living in a lie. No one told her that her family was a mob. The cliché "ignorance is bliss" becomes a sharp stabbing realization when she has to learn to cope with the aftermath.
"Sometimes I hear him whispering in my ear as if my conscience has grown and matured into a six-foot-three, dark-haired male. The studying, reading, and listening I did to impress adults are nothing compared to what I learned from Vito." - Erin

I enjoy reading, listening and reviewing. I enjoy blogging. Doing what I enjoy giving feed back in hopes someone will try a new author.
D. Jordan Padrona as a narrator has a very pleasant voice however it sounds like she is in a barrel or a good distances away from the mic. I am not sure what the problem is but it is very is distracting and takes away from the story. I thought maybe it was just me and my kindle but I have went up and listen to other audios online by this narrator and most of them seem to have the same trouble. Which is a shame since I find her voice very pleasant in this as well as all the sample audios I have listened. It is so distracting that I am unable to finish listening to this audio.
I have to say I would rather read this story than listen to it on audio. I am so sorry but this is my honest review with the way this audio is it isn't worth the cost or times to listen. I know how important ones job and rep is I try hard to be honest but with pointing out the good and bad if that is the case. In this case I am unable to.
I gave the last audio on this series a 4 star for the story I will do the same this time since I have not read or listened to the whole book. I will review the story under the ebook and not the audio on other sites.
