Publisher's Summary

I warned you. I told you not to set foot in my casino again. I told you to stay away. Because if I see those hips swinging around my suite, I’ll pin you against the wall and take you hard. And once I make you mine, I’m not going to set you free. I’m king of the Vegas underground, and I take what I want.

So run. Stay the hell away from my casino. Or I’ll tie you to my bed. Put you on your knees. Break you.

So come to me, beautiful, if you dare....

Needed both a male and female narrator

I received a copy of this audiobook free from the author in exchange for an honest review...so I don't feel great about leaving a negative review, but this just wasn't for me.

First, the narration didn't work for me. Even though this has alternating first person perspectives, there is just one male narrator. His voice didn't work for me as the female main character at all. In my opinion, men are less believable doing women's voices than vice versa, but in any case there should have been two narrators. Hearing the male narrator refer to "my panties" and "my pussy" when he's narrating as Sondra was...uhhhh, not ideal. As far as the male main character, Nico, I hated his Jersey Shore accent. It may have been appropriate, but it didn't work for a sexy romance novel for me.

As for the story, I think the mafia thing is not really for me, although this was really mafia-lite. Just not appealing to me, but if you like that sort of thing, this might work better for you. And, another matter of personal taste, I'm not into hot-headed, short-tempered doms--I prefer steely and self-controlled, so Nico wasn't really to my liking. Sondra was fine, but kind of generic.

On the plus side, as always, Renee Rose writes good sex scenes, pretty light on the BDSM in this one, but there's some great dirty talk (if only it was in a different accent...) So, while this one wasn't for me, I think a lot of people will like it if they're into hot-headed, dirty-talking mafia men with a flashy Vegas lifestyle.

Dark with sweet heat

I liked the man Nico became with Sondra. For rhe most part, he already was an aloof but fair guy by mafia standards imo. He was dominant and hot, but had a very soft heart for Sondra. You can't have a mob story without some violence, but it was all well contained andthe author handled it with aplomb. This had interesting storylines that I got pulled into quickly. I look forward to the next book in the series. I loved the narrator's voices for different characters.

Read to me again please

I read (and loved) the book, but was curious what the audible would be like. The performance was excellent, made the story come alive and (fans self) the swoon worthy voice of the narrator brought a new dimension to the story that made it so much better. And hotter. Oh yeah. Certain parts of this you are going to want to be alone while you listen (wink wink).

A Great Stunner From Ms. Rose

Just lije with every other story Ms. Renee Rose gives us; it just stays on point. This audible was incerdibly enjoyable. With its bad boy mafia boss and the sweet girl next door; it just makes the sparks that fly more intensely bright. This is a hot dark story about the Mafia boss who had all the goodness literally in the palm of his hand and he wanted to keep it. Then you have the sweet girl next door who always seemed to fall for the bad boys. Their adventure is sweet and dark. A great audible that I would highly recommend!

King of Diamonds is an Ace

I liked the storyline, the deeper development of the characters so I could understand the motivation. The narration was excellent especially with the different voices. It was hot and sexy.

Real live and steamy romance.

This book was well written and the story line kept you on pins and needles trying to figure out what would happen next. Reading it on Audible gave you the feeling that you were right there living this story. I never knew how it would end until the very end. It was an happy ending. If you love reading a true and exciting romance through the end and holding your attention, then you can’t go wrong with this book, I will probably read it one more time to see if I missed anything.

Another winner by Renee Rose

I am not much for the mafia type novel. That being said this was an exceptional read. It helped to change that feeling about them as a character set. I enjoyed the characters and the story development. The narrator was really engaging and made listening a wonderful experience. I would recommend this book in any form. I prefer audio books as they are more exciting. This book came to life through this audio version. I look forward to the next mafia novel that Renee creates. Thanks to Renee for having this novel produced audibly.

Love Me!!

Nico is a son of crime family who is promised to another mob's father's daughter who is trying his best to toe the line between being a mob son and doing everything legally...

Then you have Sandra who is a college educated Art History Professor but who is down on her luck trying to escape a bad situation. She leaves Reno and goes to Las Vegas to be with her cousin who gets her a job in housekeeping in a Casino till she can get herself together and after 2 weeks she meets Nico who scares her but then they find explosive chemistry that makes this whole book lite up like a match to flame.. Ms. Rose does not disappoint with these two and everything they have to deal with just to be happy, can't wait to read more.

** I received this advanced copy of the book from the author and volunteerly decided to review this wonderful book**

sexy

The first book in a new series by Renee Rose and it takes place in Vegas. It is not a very dark book, i would say it is grey in a few scenes at most.

It is the story of Sondra and Nico. Nico moved to Vegas to try and run his business as clean as possible. Sondra is working in the hotel after a string of bad luck.

There is in instant connection between them although Nico and his connection scares Sondra too. Nico is torn between his love and his duties to the family. he is changing because of Sondra.

Sondra also has conflicted emotions about Nico. He can be scary and protective and giving at the same time. She is faced with hard choices.

It is fast paced, well written book with lots of sexy scenes.

Interesting story

This is a romance set in the brutal world of the mafia. Im not normally into mafia romances but I decided to try it as I love Renee Roses as an author. It was an interesting read and i enjoyed the characters. It started out quite brutal and dirty but as the book progressed and romance blossomed it became more loving though still very sexy.
The narration was great!
