Publisher's Summary

Sergei Andronikov was a child when the Mafia wiped out his family, leaving him with nothing but a hunger for revenge. Years later, through ruthless strategy and tireless patience, he's a contract killer working for the three families ruling Cape Swan...and he's nearly in position to bring them all down from the inside.

Domenico "Dom" Maisano is Mafia royalty, a made man...and a hitman. He's caught up in a violent life he can't escape, struggling to maintain an image he doesn't want, and suppressing desires he can't have.

A chance encounter throws the killers into each other's paths. Though Dom knows he's playing a dangerous game, he's intrigued and keeps coming back. Sergei can't resist him either - Dom is everything he set out to destroy, but he's also everything he's ever ached for in a man.

Then Sergei gets the contract he's been waiting for - the hit that promises to bring the town's Mafia to its knees.

But when a boss makes an unexpected move, Sergei must choose between dropping the hammer on the families he vowed to annihilate, and protecting the man he swore he wouldn't love.

And the wrong choice - or even the right one - will destroy them both.

What a ride!!!

This has been one of the best books I've read this year and that's saying something because I've read a whole lot. Let me just say, that I am not a fan of mafia books but this was L.A WITT!!! I had to give it a shot! I can truly say I wasn't disappointed. I definitely got my money's worth!!!

This story was so well written, well constructed and every question was answered. No stone was left unturned. It had everything from a good romance story, mystery, suspense and comedy. The main characters had so much in common and they didn't know it but it all came full circle at the end.

And the narrator, he was phenomenal! All those accents? And the voice variation with the accents? He was great. I always knew who was talking. Gosh,. I'm sad that the story ended. As long as it was, I wish had more time to listen to their story. This was one for the records.

Kudos to the writter and narrator!

If you love mm romance ,You need to get this book, you won't regret it.

well-written, intense and complicated story

This was a well-written, intense and complicated story. Sergei and Dom are complex, dangerous men who somehow find love while surrounded by and dealing out death on a regular basis. As killers immersed in such a brutal world, they are necessarily hard, but surprisingly vulnerable, capable of compassion yet frighteningly cold—in other words so very, very human. Additionally, I don’t know if it was a function of the life they lead or a shared character trait, but both men are very straightforward in how they view and deal with a relationship that shouldn’t be happening. Even when conflicted and doubting the wisdom of being together for their own reasons, there’s not a lot of vacillating, “should I-shouldn’t I” angst. They know it’s a bad idea, know they should end it and accept that they won’t until they have to, which is a refreshing change from the high angst back-and-forth inner monologues present in most conflicted characters.

The pacing and action was just right for the tone and intricacies of the steps that the players in this game were taking, and it was an engaging, dark and unexpectedly intimate story.

One of the best audiobooks this year!

If the seas catch fire audiobook it is has to be one of the most outstanding audiobooks and listens of this year - and that’s saying a lot because there are some amazing books out there!  This has that magical combination where you have an amazing narrator an amazing author who have managed to find just that right combination.  We also get two MCs who have  their own issues -  in this case we have a feisty Russian and "mademan " Mafia style.  There’s absolutely no way this relationship should work and yet they manage to do it.

We get loads of very hot smexy times, a ton of feelz, and some really exciting action and adventure.   Add that to the fact that Michael Ferraiuolo can  do 89 accents for the whole cast of characters - all of them with varying accents and age groups - and you're are practically sitting in the front row of the m/m version of the Godfather! 

This was absolutely amazing, and I cannot recommend this enough -  if I would give it more than six stars I would!  You have to go out and get this!

I love L.A. Witt!! She writes the best books (along with a few other favorites)! Every time I see her name, it’s an immediate download. I especially love hearing about the Mafia and Male/Male Romances. Awesome job!!!

Loved it!

Wow, exceptional storyteller and narrator. I fell in love with both the protagonist from the start. There was angst but not because they were wishewahsy but because of their circumstance. The narrator did an excellent job with the accents and distinguishing between the different characters.
