There are not enough stars in the galaxy!! WOW!!

An amazingly unique, entertaining, gripping, heartfelt, fast paced, one of a kind story that has you on pins and needles the entire time. I have been a huge fan of this series for a while now and decided to wait for the audio of this book to see what would happen after the last book. It was so well worth the wait and then some. The writing is as you come to expect from J.J. McAvoy... Apologetically in your face, smart, witty and sexy! This woman can do absolutely no wrong with this world that she has built. These characters and all their intricate relationships are like crack to a junkie, so good that one can't just wait for the next fix. You want to keep on going even if you know that around the corner something is going to happen to rip your heart out. Now, the narration just took this story to another stratosphere!! Joel Froomkin completely SLAYS this narration. It felt like a radio opera with all of the different characters being voiced with so much clarity and uniqueness that you would think it was a full cast of narrators instead of one man going all in for his performance. The last hour of this audio is something fierce and the emotions just overtake you. I was a goner, and like a true masochist, I wanted more. I can't wait for more!!!

SPELLBINDING AND BREATHTAKING STORYTELLING

When I first saw this dark Mafia romance I thought it sounded good.. but now, after just finishing this the last book in this series, good is such a weak insignificant word to describe such an epic awesome listen. Great doesn’t cover it either.. because this dark, often violent, rollercoaster romance between two characters whose moral compasses had been broken long ago, was far better than great too. Their fast-paced journey together was nothing short of spectacular inspired storytelling, their rise to the top was bloody and brutal.. and I loved every cringe-worthy and sighworthy minute of it. Their highs, lows and everything in-between was twisted, breathtaking and beautiful, the pulse-pounding hold your breath action was riveting and the shocking twists, the gut-wrenching turns and the heart-stopping tragedies throughout this whole series left me in stunned awe of this author’s abilities. And Melody and Liam’s devotion and undying love for each other was writing at its very best.. because you can FEEL the passion between them, you can almost touch their chemistry and their sexy times nearly melted my headphones.

And they couldn’t of picked a more skilful narrator to bring it all to life because young and old, male and female, nationality and state.. this actor had it covered and delivered a faultless performance. Each and every scene effortlessly played out in my mind thanks to Joel Froomkin’s talented vocal abilities which brought me into each scene where I mentally clapped, jeered, swooned, swayed, stumbled and staggered. I drooled, booed, screamed, squirmed, boiled, bled and fumed. I fanned myself, bit my nails, laughed, cried and hung on to each chapter as it told of an Italian-Irish alliance that started out as an arranged marriage which lust and like-minds turned into soul-to-soul love that went through Hell, that took its blows and casualties.. and dished them out too.. and finally endedured it all because of love. The witty smooth dialogue, light-hearted humor, the edge-of-your-seat action, the nail-biting drama, the sweet and the savory, the dark and the light, the knocks and the hits and the pain and the pleasure may have been J. J. McAvoy’s words but Joel was the magician who gave them a heartbeat.

Worth a credit? This journey is the best I’ve ever listened to, it’s told mainly from the Melody and Liam’s POV’s who were strong alpha characters but there were multiple POV from family members too which brought everyone’s feelings to the forefront making it an all inclusive under one roof Callahan/Giovanni dynasty and the action-packed drama never stopped.. so oh boy YES it’s very creditworthy. Four books in the Ruthless People series.. four very different chapters in their lives.. four credits used.. and four times I mentally stood clapping this author’s brilliance, the narrator’s endless abilities and shouted “more.. more.. more..!”. And now I’m off to hear how their legacy continues in the spin-off series about their, now adult, children.

It is possible to be the BEST

By the time an author repelases a 4th book in a series, the story gets stale, monotonous and sometimes down right boring... oh not this time, not this book, if it’s possible to adore a fourth book better than the first 3 I would say this is it!!! And omg the narrator, are there oscars, Emmy or Tony awards given for narrators because this man deserves all of them, the amount of life he gave to this story is beyond words, I can’t even describe how involved and realistic it felt while listening to this story, I swore I was in the middle of the book watching it everything happening right in front of me. I can’t recommend this series enough and now with the addition of this book I’ll have to figure out how to make people read/listen to it even more!!!
