Publisher's Summary

Protecting her should be easy for a man like me.

When assigned as a bodyguard for Adriana Bertoli, I knew I was in for a world of trouble. With her fiery-red hair, sparkling green eyes, milky white skin, and lush, curvaceous body, she's a damn knockout.

But she also happens to be the niece of one of the most powerful mob bosses in the Seattle-Tacoma area, Don Carlo - my boss. And he's made it clear that none of his men are to lay a finger on Adriana.

The man to have that honor would have to be perfect - a warrior and a saint. Sadly, I was no saint.

It should be an easy order to follow. After all, I owed everything to the man, and I'd be nothing without him. But every moment in Adriana's presence is pure temptation. The longer I'm with her, the more I want her, and I fear it won't be long before I betray the man who's like the father I never had.

    Story
    "Kept me hooked"

    I really enjoyed this audiobook. It had all 3 required components ( good story, good and fitting performance, just enough hot sexy scenes).

    It is definitely a HEA novel but keeps you guessing still. It's tough to pull off both male and female parts but Emma does a good job.

    The story had good flow with the resident bad boy coming to the rescue of the spitfire of a girl in distress all while her God Father aspires to keep them from becoming romantically involved.

    I received this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review and I honestly can say it kept me involved and tuned in.

    "Well done mafia crime romance"

    Wonderful romantic story with lots of suspense and action added in. Well laid out story and characters. Really enjoyed the characters, they felt authentic and real. I love mafia crime stories and this one was well done and believable.

    Great narrator. Wonderful performance.

    "Great start"
    Would you listen to Relentless again? Why?

    Yes this book was very enjoyable. I will listen again when book 2 comes out.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Daniel he tried to stay away from Adriana, but he has wanted Adriana since they were younger. Daniel is very protective of her which makes you want to swoon.


    Have you listened to any of Emma Lysy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes I have, she does a great job as a narrator. She is very enjoyable to listen to.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    When the Uncle found out, that was a nail bitter.


    Any additional comments?

    "Mob Princess..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Relentless to be better than the print version?

    I don't know I haven't read the print version. However, I enjoy Audiobooks sometimes more because it gives you more depth to the characters and allows you to


    What other book might you compare Relentless to and why?

    Ummm I'm not sure. I think a lot of mafia books are similar, but this had a bit of a twist with a college student, being the niece and having a stalker.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Lysy – was your favorite?

    Daniel. I thought that Emmy did a good job with his voice. She could do a bit deeper, but I know that is hard.


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

    No I can't do that ever...lol I like to savor the story and characters. Plus its my excuse to exercise as I listen when I walk.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked how he (Daniel) tried so hard to stay away, but he has been attracted/loved Adriana since they were younger. He's protective and not overly alpha which is good. I liked the suspense of the story and I liked their connection.

    Another interesting point is Adriana is the niece of the mobster, she's in college and the stalker is former teacher. I also liked that the author new the "levels" of the mafia. She made it seem almost real.

    However, I kinda felt that it should have been more in regards to Mr. Crazy Pants at the end as I felt it was kind of rushed. Overall the story is good and for being my first book by this author, I have to say I would read again.

    Any additional comments?

    What a great story. This is my first audiobook by the author and i'm sure it won't be my last. Daniel and Adriana were great together. Loved the chemistry between the two. I liked how her uncle Don Carlo was true to mob form and the way he dealt with disobeying him. I would definitely recommend this book if you are looking for a hot and sexy mafia story that is suspenseful and romantic.

    "Enjoyed the story - narrator...not so much"

    Enjoyable romantic suspense story. Storyline flowed well. Unfortunately. I found the narrator's performance lacking. Honestly. I wish I had bought the book instead of Audible.

    "I liked the story ...
    "

    I thought it was a fun story but the narrator wasn't my favorite. I found her voices started to blend the further into the book. Adriana started getting Carmen's attitude and accent. overall it was good though.
