Publisher's Summary

Yvette Bradford walks into work like any other day only to find out her boss has been fired and replaced by Antony Carbonaro, the rich heir to the Carbonaro group. His appearance in Yvette's life begins an inescapable spiral of events where she discovers the truth about the Carbonaro group's mafia connection, and is pulled into a violent and dangerous power struggle between two mafia families. Will Yvette survive the danger that surrounds her? 

Antony Carbonaro wants to prove himself to the Family, he wants to take B&E Shipping to the next level both illegally and legally, but what he doesn't know is how hard that is going to be. He walks into a mess of blackmail, embezzlement, and a distracting attraction to his president, Yvette Bradford. Antony has never been a good man, but as the danger around him intensifies, Antony finds himself falling deeper into his darkness. He can't stop until he defeats his enemies, not even if it means pulling Yvette into his world of danger and darkness, unless she can resist him.

Action Packed with a cliffhanger ending!

This book is action packed with a cliffhanger ending! The relationship between Anthony and Yvette is very complicated and that is the best way to describe it without giving too much away. I found the romance between them to be very realistic and not a cheesy love story as you often tend to find in romance novels. The characters are fully developed and highly relatable. Will these two follow their heart and end up together??? The narrator gave a strong performance as he has a good ability to switch between multiple character voices and projected appropriate energy. I can't wait for book 2!!!!!!!! You won't be disappointed as they are lots of twists and turns!

Good mafia romantic suspense!

It's always good to have a mixture of books, and a mafia suspense came through just at the right time. This story is action packed, full of lust and the cliffhanger ending keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more. Anthony Carbonaro is taking over B&E Shipping. Trying to prove himself the asset that he is to his family, Anthony is pulling out all the stops to get the company to the top. Yvette had no idea that Anthony was taking over the company she is working for, but with his good looks and sharp mind, she is ready to help him. The attraction is immediate, but you can mix business with pleasure, can you? I really enjoyed this book, there are many twists and turns, leaving me guessing for a good portion of it. Anthony is a force to be reckoned with, but the real page turner for me is the transformation that Yvette has. She is a smart, strong woman, and she proves this right up to the end. Danger is lurking everywhere, even with those you don't necessarily expect. With well developed secondary characters, Samantha Lee has given us a world of danger, family, and passion, one that you will not want to miss.

Michael Johnson is the narrator and it's the first time I have heard him perform. He is well paced, and I enjoyed his variety of voices. His female voicing is pleasant, not forced. He uses a lot of emotion and is able to inflect the suspense very well. It is a pleasure to listen to him.

Mixed Feelings...

I must say I have mixed feelings on the rating of the audiobook...some parts I find difficult to assimilate..Yvette’s incredible transformation (but then I love that she did and she became a badass)...the idea that Anthony fell so hard and fast, yet what he did at the end of the story.

The story drew me in..I had to see what was going to happen and didn’t realize there was a cliffhanger...plus a little taste of the next book...I couldn’t help but like the twists and turns..the suspense of who is the snitch, who to trust...will Yvette and Anthony survive..who will he marry?

The narrator...again...He did well with emotion and pacing and tone..but his male voices, particularly the Italian accents were over the top..hokey....almost comical at times. If he could even it would that would be great. It’s the older men in particular that was too much.

I am anxious to find out what happens next!

Mafia story with petulant men fighting to be heir

Audiobook
Story: Sex, lies, embezzlement, and blackmail makes up this mafia story. Belmonte heir versus Carbonaro heir. Both heirs wanting the same woman, but for different reasons.

These mafia men who were heirs to the crime family behaved like entitled petulant children. The dialogue for Anthony was atrocious.

Performance: Michael Johnson is the male narrator performing all the characters. Michael read the script as written with little performance skills. Michael’s narrator didn’t execute the voices the way I’d imagine these characters sounding. I prefer dual narration in order to separate the women from the men. There were a few sound quality issues, as well.

Overall: Between the writing and the narration neither worked for me. I envisioned a different storyline, one without petulant men pouting over who is going to become the heir.
The numerous amount of characters was challenging to follow with only one performer. I highly recommend purchasing the book to follow along with the narrator.

The dialogue didn’t match the persona for dangerous mafia men. I questioned the direction of Yvette’s character later in the story. It was too convenient how easily she acclimated to her new purpose.

Can’t resit this great listen

This is my first I heard from the author . Also first time I heard from the narrator.
Samantha The author wrote a fastpasted story full of anction , mystery and many levels , lots of suspense. This story is about a Mafia family and how one member wants to make a difference to the family and the company.
Hero is Anthoney Heroine is Yvette.

Both are through together via work. They have an attraction towards each other and they need to find a way to work things out .
Grab it and find out does the family get in the way
Michael Johnson had a strong , clear voice . He did the characters perfectly. His voice was smooth

START OF A GOOD SERIES!

This is the start of a really good series. I loved it! This story is full of action and suspense. It also ends with a cliffhanger. The narration was great and gives that extra flair to the book. This author gives you great detail with her character builds and plot, many twists and turns throughout. A job well done! I will definitely be reading any books released in this series (can't wait).

Pretty good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this was a pretty good mafia story with some romance mixed in. There are good action scenes and a decent plot. It does focus a lot on the relationship but that wasn't so over the top that I lost interest in the story. The narration is well done. All in all, it was an enjoyable listen.

Mafia Romance!

I have been drawn to mafia romance for years. Samantha Lee wrote a book that pulled me in. I loved the twists this book had, and how the characters were developed. The narration by Michael Johnson fit this book. The only thing that would have improved this book, would be to have the second in series available now. I'm not a fan of cliffhanger endings, but this was well done. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will listen to the next book in this series.
