Publisher's Summary

He’s my brother’s best friend, a Russian killer, and boxer with no ties to the O’Malley crime family - my family. 

I’ve loved and studied him forever. I witnessed him change when I was only 13. He doesn’t know I’m aware he kills, or how I notice once a year he gets a call and disappears. 

For years we fight our attraction. One night, we succumb to our desire. 

Every touch he gives me is electric. Each moment deepens our addiction. 

If it were only us, life would be perfect. 

Unfortunately, our union creates targets on our backs from multiple crime families. It puts our loved ones at greater risk. Wars from each of our enemies now plague the O’Malleys and Ivanovs. 

Every time the annual call comes to pay off his debt, he crumbles further. I’m not sure how much more either of us can take. 

He’s my broken fighter....

Broken Fighter is the jaw-dropping second installment of the Mafia Wars series. It’s an interconnecting, brother’s best friend, stand-alone dark mafia romance, guaranteed to have an HEA.

Another great listen from Maggie Cole!

This book really intrigued me, part took place before Ruthless Stranger, but it all came together in the end...with another cliffhanger! Boris and Nora were well-developed characters that you felt their love for each other and cheered at the end.

Captivating, intense, and hot!

This book was so captivating that I literally could not do anything but listen! I typically do chores while listening to a book, Allyson Voller and Gregory Salinas did an amazing job bringing Nora and Boris to life. This book is complex, intense, and so so steamy!! Maggie Cole is an amazing writer and the words she writes come to life like you're watching a movie!! A must listen/read series!!!

Voices reel you in

This is an amazing story. The narrators that were used for Nora O’Malley and Boris Ivanov were perfect. They brought the story to life. I closed my eyes during the story and I could see it unfolding right before me. They were what I expected the characters to sound like. The narrators brought the steamy, naughty, deliciousness that is Maggie Cole to life in the most perfect way!!! This series is not to be missed!

Amazing

I’m not someone that can usually get into audio books, but I wanted to give it a try. And I absolutely loved this book. The narrators were amazing, and I could picture the story unfolding as they read it. And the story itself, was great. It was action packed, and full of lots of spicy parts. Definitely recommend if your a fan of spicy books, with a great story. And the narrators, did an incredible job bringing this book to life.

Pure perfection from The Mafia Wars series

I'm in love with this series. The casting in the first two books has been spot on. Incredible performances from Gregory and Allyson. I can't say enough good things about the characters in this world. Each is complex, different and real. Boris and Nora go through so much in the course of their relationship. I love how the first two books have progressed together and I can't wait for the next in the series. It is going to be out of this world. I'm now a serious Maggie Cole convert and will be getting all of these books on day one! Thank you for the incredible world you have built for us, Maggie.

Epic Book 2 in Mafia Wars!

I love the narration that this series has given us. Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller were amazing as Boris and Nora!

There are so many heart stopping moments in this book and both narrators did a great conveying emotions during the scenes.

Maggie Cole has outdone herself with this series so far. This is only book 2 and there are so many more left and I cannot wait to see what happens!

This is a must listen. I highly recommend that you are listening to this by yourself with no kids around as the steamy scenes are incredible! You will want to rewind and listen again!

Mafia drama galore!!

Boris Ivanov is beholden to Petrov… once a year he does whatever Petrov wants …. He has learned how to torture people to get maximum information.. and maximum pain. It has changed the man he is and he doesn’t see a way out.

Nora O’Malley has lived Boris for years… since before he became a killer. She knows who he is and loves him anyway. She has hidden her feelings for Boris because her family has always made her feel she needs to be with an Irish man.

Things happen, lots of things. I’m not going to tell you what things, but I am going to tell you that it’s a great story… a fantastic listen…. And I encourage you to listen. ( or read if it’s your preference).
Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller do a wonderful job with the narration.

Ivanov + O’Malley = Jesus, Mary and Joesph

Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller were perfect- great job on the accents...

I loved the 2nd installment into the Mafia Wars, i enjoyed it twisting in with book 1 and having snippets of the other Ivanov brothers- cant wait for their stories as well as those O'Malley Men!!!

Steamy scenes but i will say one thing the Jesus, Mary and Joesph got over-used (just my opinion) other than that i loved Boris and Noras story- im glad Boris got his woman..

Enjoyable Audio

A Dark Mafia Romance!

This is the second book in the Mafia Wars Series, a Dark Mafia Romance. This is a series of interconnected stories, with an ongoing plot. Boris and Nora’s forbidden romance is captivating. Boris is handsome, dark, ruthless, and protective. Nora is strong, beautiful, and smart. They are perfect together. Their love story is filled with danger, secrets, and twists and turns. The supporting characters are great, and they have an important part in this story. The family ties are strong. The world building is intricate. The O’Malleys and the Ivanovs are intriguing. I love the Epilogue. This is my favorite story in the series. Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller did an outstanding job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series.

Boris and Nora are really hot!

Broken Fighter
By Maggie Cole book 2 of the Mafia Wars series
Narration by Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller.

Wow this series is amazing. If you love Mafia stories this series is seriously full of everything that you want in a mafia book. It has tension filled dealings that pull these two families together. With one common denominator: Nora!

It really pulled my attention in and held it right to that hanging ending where it leaves you wanting more right now! But Boris and Nora get their HEA.

Two mafia families one Russian one Irish. Held together by a friendship between Boris and Killian. Boris has loved Nora forever but he knows that he wouldn’t be accepted by her Irish mafia family if he were to try anything with her. In kind Nora pines for Boris. These two are seriously hot and when they finally get together, explode off the pages in their mutual sexiness and want for each other. Forbidden love that they keep hidden for as long as they can from each other’s families.

This truly is a mafia book. There are gruesome twists and violence that are exactly what one would expect to see as mafia dealings. The writing is what I would realistically visualize as how mafia dealings would be and had my heart beating so fast in some scenes that I was riveted by the whole book.

The casting of Gregory Salinas as Boris was perfect. He was many accents that helped pull all of the characters into the story. His voice was perfect for Boris and the secondary characters as well. Allyson is completely new to me and her work on this book was true to Nora’s character, showcasing her doubts in the families finding out anything about the connection between Boris and Nora. This was a riveting book that was a part of series and I can’t wait for the next book ❣️

A fantastic addition to the series.

After listening to Ruthless Stranger I was hooked on the Mafia Wars series. I had such high hopes for Broken Fighter, and I have to say that I was hooked right from the start.

Nora and Boris have an intense chemistry and draw to each other but her Irish mob brothers are determined that she should be married to an Irish man and continue the Irish bloodline.

The story is very high action and intense. While there is some seriously steamy loving and fiery romantic scenes, this is a story of the Irish and Russian Mafia (among others) so be prepared for some gory and sometimes gruesome scenes.

Maggie Cole's writing is complex, exciting and Broken Fighter's intricate plot is a testament to just what a huge talent she is. The story is like a mixed tapestry of love, steam, action, family, and darkness. It is a fantastic blend that works incredibly well.

Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller deliver an edge of the seat, intense performance. The acted each scene to perfection. Whether the scene is steamy, intense, emotional or violent, they had me transfixed.

Audiobook Obsession.

Broken Fighter indeed!

Dark, but so good. I can’t wait for Cruel Enforcer. The writing was done really well and it transported you right into this dark mafia world with its own rules and code of conduct. The dialogue and the characters were so real and I was rooting for an hea. Really good story.

I cannot tell you how happy I am that I discovered this author's books. The first book in this series was absolutely amazing and this book was equally engaging and intriguing. Broken Fighter tells the story of Boris Ivanov and Nora O'Malley. This is a mafia book with both a little brother's best friend and a little forbidden romance thrown in. The O'Malley's are part of the Italian Mafia and the Ivanov's are Russian and not necessarily on the right side of the law.

Nora and Boris have loved each other for what feels like forever, but in secret due to the complexities of the family dynamics and because Boris is best friends with Nora's brother Killian.

This book is chock full of drama, darkness, suspense and some seriously hot chemistry between Boris and Nora. I am loving this cast of characters...both the Ivanov's and the O'Malley's as well as the additional characters introduced.

The audiobook was absolutely fantastic. Both Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller as narrators did a wonderful job and were very pleasant to listen to and I would definitely recommend them. I cannot wait to dive in to more of this series. #PinkFlamingoProductions #TheFlock

Boris & Nora!

Mafia romance is a guilty pleasure of mine, and this series is pushing all the right buttons. I loved Boris and Nora's story, even more than the first book. I think what draws me in is not only the danger, but the action, and possessiveness of Boris. Nora has loved him all of her life. She knows who he is and what he does, and still, her heart belongs to him. But will her brothers ever let her be with him? Not only Russian, he is not part of the crime families. Will love prevail? And will everyone come out safe in the end? This one is took me by storm. Suspense, graphic detail, incredible romance, family ties, friends through thick and thin, it has it all and left me breathless til the end. I loved it! And now it leaves me wanting the next in the series!

Maggie Cole picked her narrators with care, because better casting could not have happened. Gregory Salinas is top of the line! From Irish to Russian to American, he lets those voices and accents flow, never missing a beat. I love his ability to understand the characters and bring out their personalities. Allyson Voller brings Nora to life! Strong, and loving, she creates Nora with nuances and inflections, letting us know exactly how she is feeling. These two were fantastic!

Brother's Best Friend Mafia Romance

Broken Fighter by Maggie Cole is a brother's best friend dark mafia romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Gregory Salinas and Allyson Voller. This is the second book in the Mafia Wars series. The book can be read as a standalone but the stories are interconnected.

This is the second book of Maggie's that I have read and it definitely won't be my last. I loved the relationship between Boris and Nora. I really enjoyed getting both of their points of views throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Cruel Enforcer to be released on June 1, 2021 so I can get Sergey and Kora's story.

Gregory and Allyson did a great job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would recommend this book if you love mafia romances, brothers best friend romances, dark romances, or romantic suspense.

Excellent action

Wow this book is non-stop action from beginning to end, you will be on the edge of your seat. I have listened to other books narrated by Gregory before however this one really did stand out as one of my favourites. With a fantastic voice that carries the personalities of the dark alpha mafia men it is a winning combination for me.
