Publisher's Summary

He’s no Prince Charming....

Callum Griffin is the heir to the Irish mafia. He’s ruthless, arrogant, and he wants to kill me. 

We got off on the wrong foot when I set a (very small) fire in his house. Our families believe a marriage pact is the only thing that will prevent all-out warfare.

I think I might need to murder him while he sleeps. This would all be a lot easier if Callum wasn’t so damned good-looking.

But I’ve got a lockbox around my heart. Because, even if I’m forced to marry him, I could never love a brutal prince.

Brutal Prince is the explosive first act in the epic Brutal Birthright series. It’s a stand-alone dark Mafia romance, complete with HEA and no cliff-hangers. It contains blazing-hot bedroom scenes for mature listeners only!

I Need A Callum! ❤️

This is the first book I read written by Sophie Lark, and I freaking loved it! From the moment Aida set the library on fire and then threw Callum’s stopwatch into the lake, I knew I was going to like this girl. She was feisty, but not annoying as some heroines in other books tend to be while trying to seem tough. Aida had street smarts. She was the perfect match for Callum because she could hold her own with him and his people. I laughed at so many of the situations they were in together. It was actually a really sweet love story. I’m not sure if I ever would want to be involved in the mafia, but I can’t help but think how intriguing that life is and how tough it would have to be to be a part of it. Callum can come across as a nice guy, but if you cross him, he wouldn’t hesitate to kill you. He was so protective of Aida even when he didn’t like her which made him so much hotter. The narrators doing the audiobook makes it even more sexy. Callum.... my heart! I cannot wait to read Nero’s story! Sophie, great job!

What a wild ride!

First of all, I need a Callum in my life! Right from the very first paragraph it was obvious Ada is not your typical female. She’s strong, a little ok a lot arrogant who goes after what she wants and pretty much does what ever she wants. Each chapter had me drawn in a little more! Coming from two Mafia rivalry families Callum and Ada are forced in to marriage to prevent and further violence between their families which sparks a rollercoaster ride of a journey. I am so looking forward to the next book as the both Ada’s brothers and Callum’s sisters are also intriguing characters The narration was very well done by both narrators.

Must read

This is the first book that I have listened to by Sophie Lark and I found it refreshing and amazing. It's a Mafia book that has violence, kidnapping, forced marriage, and surprisingly many laugh out loud moments. Callum is a strong dominant man who is also compassionate. Aida is strong willed and sassy in a funny way. Both love their families. I don't think I've ever said this about a Mafia story but it is a sweet romance. Don't get me wrong there are several explosive love scenes. The plot and character developments are superb. The narrators immersed me into the story. They are new to me and they are excellent storytellers. They give the characters distinctive voices and bring them to life. I highly recommend this Audible book. It's definitely one that I will want to listen to again. 🎧audiobookobsession 🎧

Woah! A great story and narration

I loved this story. The FMC is not your typical damsel in distress. She is a snarky, no nonsense woman who goes after what she wants and takes it. The MMC is a softer version of a brutal gangster and I loved how the two of them clashed at first. The heat was intense and Monica King and Liam DiCosimo are fantastic in this enemies to lovers story that I just adored. Highly recommend. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer #PinkFlamingoProductions #Flock

Steamy Arranged Marriage Book!!!

Brutal Prince was my first book by this author. I love a good mafia book and an arranged marriage book is definitely my jam. Brutal Prince started off a little slow but definitely took off quickly once Callum and Aida were told they needed to marry each other to connect their two families for power. Neither takes the news well considering they are two very different people. Callum is a politician and Aida has been bossed around by her brothers her whole life and isn't looking to be told what to do by anyone, anymore.... but when these two come together, it is explosive, on all sorts of levels. I didn't like Callum at all at first but he definitely grew on me, and part way through the book I found myself really liking how protective he was of Aida, even if maybe his motivation was skewed. I loved that Aida was strong and independent and fiery, even if it did land her in hot water a lot of the time. And I absolutely loved that she stood up for herself with Callum. Their chemistry was seriously off the charts steamy. I would consider this book more mild in terms of "mafia" than other mafia books I have read. I did love the arranged marriage aspect and the enemies to lovers story line. I found the book to be very engaging and look forward to the next books in the series. This was my first listen by both Monica King and Liam DiCosimo and I found them both pleasant to listen to and thought they both did a great job. I would definitely be interested in listening to more of their work in the future. #THEFLOCK #PINKFLAMINGOPRODUCTIONS

My first read by this author and I'm in love!

Enemies to lovers and Mafia romance are my absolute favorite genres and this one delivers! I was glued in right from the start and couldn't get enough of Callum and Aida! Its insanely sexy and deliciously dark. I love how fiesty Aida is with Callum. Though their marriage is arranged, Aida doesn't have to like it or play by the rules. They both give as good as they get. They definitely don't see feelings coming into the mix and they deny it every chance they get. The steamy scenes are HOT, like scalding, they have a chemistry that is explosive. I loved how everything flowed and played out. The narrators just blew me away with how well they fit these characters. Just perfection! -Audiobook Obsession Reviewer

When their world collides, this makes for the perfect chaotic beautiful union! I enjoyed reading/listening to this book! Monica and Liam did a fantastic job narrating! Highly recommend this book and look forward to seeing what else Sophie has

Mafia romance!

This is an enemies to lovers romance. We have Callum from the Irish mafia and Aida from the Italian mafia. Our story starts out with a party a fire and an unwanted marriage and ends in true love. Aida is a feisty and smart young woman trying to make her mark in a male dominated world. She fights like hell for her family and friends. She is such an enjoyable h. Callum is running for political office and while strong-minded he comes across as fair (for a mobster). Callum and Aida have to figure out how to unite two enemy families and overcome several external obstacles. This book is action packed and sexy as hell. Love scenes are HAWT. This book has duel narration which I love. Monica and Dicosimo do an amazing job of bringing the characters to life. This is my first book by Sophie Lark and it won't be my last. I hope the series continues with Aida's brothers or Callum's brothers. # PinkFlamingoProductionsReviewer # AudioObessionReviewer

Beginning of what will be an awesome series

I received his audiobook free for an honest review as an Audiobook Obsession Reviewer and Pink Flamingo Productions. Love a strong woman fighting a strong man. Great match. Not one of their choosing, but still perfect. The author brings the listener/reader to the edge and draws them back throughout. Great back and forth relationship. The narrators did a great job bringing this exciting story to the listener. Looking forward to the next book by this author.

You like mafia romance, enemies to lovers get it!

Enemies to lovers mafia romance, with age-gap and arranged marriage, narrated by Monica King and Liam DiCosimo, brilliant, enticing, and got me hard. A fantastic roller-coaster ride I didn't want to get down from. It was enthralling and each chapter got to me, I was hooked from the very start and I so need the next books in the series. The audiobook is totally recommended, it made this story which was a brilliant one, and took it a step further. Must-read!

My enemy... is my husband?

I received this book via a promo code from #Audiobook Obsession at my request and this is my voluntary review. Aida Gallo is part of an Italian Mafia family in Chicago, after inciting an incident involving politician Callum Griffin, son of the rival Irish Dynasty, she gets one of her brothers almost crippled and to stave off a war, their parents decide to arrange a marriage between their feuding offspring. Both resent the other and Callum is even less pleased with their choice in his bride but has no option but to accept his parents decision. Sparks fly, things get steamy and Aida's knowledge of The Art of War, becomes a favorite as she applies it to making her new husband pay for their predicament. This book was fun, snarky and when these two bedfellows realize there are larger dangers they have to reassess who the true enemies really are.

Brutal Prince

I love Brutal Prince. It is captivating, intense and entertaining all at the same time. I have never laughed so hard listening to a dark mafia romance book as I did during the spa visit that Aida had. Her and Callum's interactions throughout the story made for a very interesting book. While this is book 1 in a series, it is a complete standalone yet it was so good that I can't wait to listen to more books in the Brutal Birthright series. Monica King and Liam DiCosimo both did a great job bringing this story to life. 🎧AudiobookObsessionVIPReviewer

My Thoughts on Brutal Prince

It's a great feeling when you've just come across a truly fantastic book. It's even better when you know you've just found a new author to add to your must have more list and the book you've just finished is part of a series. I now get to look forward to more books featuring these characters that I loved in this story. Brutal Prince was an intense and engaging mafia romance. It features one crazy couple brought together because of an arranged marriage. Theirs was most certainly an enemies-to-lovers tale. The leading couple was very angry, and very volatile. But it made for a super steamy story. And everything going on with their family and others around them made for such an engrossing experience. The narrators were both new to me but they were crazy good. They had great emotion both good and bad, snarky and serious, it was just excellent range. I hope to hear more from them in future. 🎧AudiobookObsession Reviewer

Fabulous!

With a strong storyline and a great set of characters Brutal Prince has been a fabulous listen. Callum and Aida aware so much crazy fun as are Aida's. brothers! This book skillfully combines humour, tension, spots of violence and a love story weaving them together into a fabulous whole. Liam DiCosimo and Monica King are excellent, bringing the story to life skillfully and with great verve. I will be looking for more from both of these narrators! 💖💖💖💖💖

Aida and Griffin!

Aida was raised in an Italian mafia family when Aida and her brothers decided to attend the birthday party of the daughter of their family’s competitor she never expected that a mistake would bring down the wrath of their eldest son on her family. Callum was raised as the eldest son in an Italian mafia family who was determined to ensure that Aida and her brothers were punished for the events of that night. They never expected that the way they would have to compensate for both their errors in judgment was an arranged marriage to ensure peace between the families. They couldn’t be more different as Aida was a tomboy who was raised by her father and brothers while Callum believes appearances were everything. He thought she was unsuitable while she thought he was cold, and they are both about to find out that appearances can be deceiving. Whenever Aida and Callum are together the sparks fly whether they are fighting or exploring the chemistry between them and she proves that she is his equal in life and love. I listed to an audio copy of this book and the performance of the narrators made a captivating story even better. 🎧AudioBook Obsession
