When going to war, there are three very simple rules one must abide by.
1. Know thy enemy
2. Be prepared to sacrifice.
3. Always wear good shoes
I've got an eye for it, and nothing's going to stand in my way.
Not even Rory "The Saint" Brodrick.
He's a fool if he thinks he can change me. By the time I'm through with him, I'll make his mafia look like child's play.
Cross me, Mr. Brodrick?
You better cross your heart and hope to die.
I'm a fighter. A hustler. A mobster.
I've seen a few things in my day.
But I've never encountered anything like her.
She's a beauty with a beast of a heart. The poison apple I just can't resist. And in her trail she leaves a wake of men crawling on their knees.
What she doesn't know is that I like my women wild.
It only makes it that much more fun to tame them.
This is a dark mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.

I have loved every single book from this series and I hope there will be more of them. Scarlett is such a damaged character and it is really hard to identify with her but Rory is a fighter and patient with her. It is a dark mafia romance but it does conclude with a HEA. It is a stand alone even though it is part of a series. There are several of the previous characters mentioned throughout the book.
The narrador is amazing! She is without a doubt one of the best I have heard. I love her accents and how well she performs. Truly awesome! The story is told in Dual POV which is my favorite. We know what both characters are thinking and feeling throughout the book.
I feel really bad for Scarlett. She was betrayed by someone she trusted and raped by 5 man who changed the corse of her life forever. She was raised by an upper class family but a pretty heartless mother. She left everything when she was a teen and never looked back. She carries that anger and plans on revenge even though several years have past. Rory is patient with her but even he has a limit to how much he endure. Scarlett is a liar and manipulator. Her games are getting old.
Great audiobook with a dark mafia romance theme.

This series is consistently awesome. too hard to pick one favorite! I love Zavarelli's style, keep them coming!! Tracy Marks absolutely nails the "Boston"lingo! truly a great and entertaining listen!
Tracy Marks, Tracy brings the characters to life. I loved her Boston accent and the male voices.
I would compare this book to the others in this series.
Everything, I loved everything about Tracy. All of her books are just amazing, she seems to take on the roll of the characters she plays.
I wanted to cry because the next book is not out yet!
I love this series, it is gritty and raw heartbreaking and healing all in one book. I cant not recommend this book/series enough it is amazing.
I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol
I received this audio book free for an honest review. I liked this book. Didn't love it, but it is the first I have listened to in this series. I already bought the first audiobook just so I can see how the series starts. I don't believe not listening to the previous books was a hindrance. The author did a great job of explaining the characters and how they fit in the story. Rory is so awesome and Scarlett beautiful. However, they are both crazy. Enjoyed how the author did such a good job writing their characters and personalities. The narrator did a great job with the New England accent and the individual characters.

I have every one of the Boston Irish mafia books and love each and every one. The men are connected through the Irish mafia and one the Russian. The women are either already friends or become friends. This book is about Scarlett and Saint. As in they other books there is an attraction, but the woman has something going on in her life that is a result of her past.
I loved Scarlett as she was so strong and appeared hard but there is a sweetest underlying. Saint is one of the sweeter mafia, love his give and take with his mother.
I Love Tracy Marks, her accents are great, the emotion so well provided for the characters and she does male and female perfectly.
YOU MUST GET EACH AND RVERY ONE OF THESE AUDIOBOOKS!!!
Once again A. Zavarelli has written another entertaining, can't stop listening, thrilling book. This is definitely a 5 stars mafia series! I loved Scarlet's character and the fact that she was a fighter and seek out revenge on the people that wronged her. I am loving this series and hope there is more to come.

The narration was amazing, she did a great job with both the Boston accent and the male voices. thank you to author for great series
I liked this one, but I didn't think it was as great as the first few. would I recommend it? yes. would I read more in the series? yes. would I read it again? maybe. the narration was fabulous as always. I can't really put my finger on what it was that didn't make it as great as the others, maybe I just didn't feel the connection to the characters like I usually do.
Avid listener while doing everything from chasing after my toddler to running errands. Fan of all Romance, PRN & fantasy, mystery thrillers.
I loved this book so much. The story line is great and a little of step from the previous books so it kept everything fresh feeling for me.
Rory! He just wanted what everyone wants, but he wanted it with the person who was least likely to give it... it all works ok ok I promise
Oh Tracy... you have killed any future boston set or Irish themed audio book for any narrator other than you! You nailed it, you performed the crap outta it, and you have officially become the best at the Boston Irish accent ever... dare I say even better than an actual Irish Bostonian? Maybe?
It was graphic regarding the context of the story, but it was necessary for the characters. It still pulls at your heart for what Scarlet has gone through.
This is a real beauty and the beast story. But sometimes the beast is the past, and the beauty is the overcoming of it. Sometimes the beast is survival and the beauty is the pain that pushed us there. And sometimes the beast is a women and the beauty is the love of a man despite her beastly side. This is a fantastic, gritty, and thoughtful story, so worth the credit, cash, and time. I received this audiobook from audiobook boom for my unbiased review for free.
Saint is definitely on my list to re-listen to! I love this series. Rory is such a complex and caring man. The narrator did a fantastic job conveying his accent and emotions along with Scarlett's .
I loved the ending of this story. Rory's mom seemed like the kind of woman to inspire good behavior
I don't think the emotions or character accents could be conveyed as well with just reading the book. Tracy Marks is an extremely talented narrator. I will listen to more books that she has performed.
This book was so hard not to listen in one sitting. I only put it down to go to sleep or when I had to work. I loved this story. It was nice having characters from A. Zavarelli's other books (Crow, Reaper, Ghost) be mentioned in this story, but not center stage.
I hope that the Boston Underworld series continues. I love all of the stories. I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.
