Publisher's summary

We were destined for disaster from the second we met....

Massimo D’Agostino is the heir to his father’s empire. Don’t be fooled by his handsome face or that piercing blue gaze. He’s no prince charming. He’s dangerous and feared, possessive and fierce.

Our first meeting began with a contract that forced me to marry him and sign my life away. I was a debt repayment and a pawn in his game to exact revenge against my father. The only way out is death.

I belong to him now. Me, the Balesteri Mafia princess. Pure and untouched.... Owned by the devil who placed me in a gilded cage. 

But something unexpected happened the moment our paths collided. It made me want more of what he had to offer every time I lay beneath him. 

Then the past came knocking at the door, and dark secrets scattered at my feet. Suddenly I don’t know truth from lies. Or who the monster in this story is. I thought it was my husband. Now I’m not so sure…

Ruthless Prince is the first book in the Dark Syndicate series. It is a stand-alone dark-mafia enemies-to-lovers arranged-marriage romance, complete with HEA and no cliff-hangers.

Contains mature content.

Male narrator ruins the experience!!


I am a huge fan of Faith Summer’s books and loved this series. The male narrator however is awful. He has annoying voice but worst when he does the female characters it’s down right cringey!!! Especially the way he voices the character of Candace. Candace is 25 and grew up in America like Massimo and his brothers. However, the narrator makes Candace sound like a 90 year old women who just got off the boat from Italy. I truly hope they have another male narrator for the other books in the series because this guy should not narrate female characters. Also Candace is a big part of the next 2 books in the series and I hate for him to ruin those books too. They should have just had the female narrator narrate the whole book. The male narrator ruined it for me.

Decent enough

Totally missed the mark with this make narrator. It’s unfortunate and not even close to as sexy as it could have been. The narration isn’t bad, just a bit weird and a bit awkward during the sex scenes. Besides the steamy bits I hardly noticed after awhile.
Plot was ok, nothing that stands out so much I’d risk spoilers to share the juicy details. The book did get a very strange and abrupt action adventure movie feel at the end. I guess I didn’t see THAT coming, so let’s say it’s a surprise twist! Because seriously I have no freakin idea where that came from.. lol..so random.
Steam was decently hot, nothing to crazy. Plenty of angst and enemies to lovers vibe.
Overall I would say worth a credit if you don’t have a better option on hand. If nothing else this book does introduce us to an entire new series.

Story is good but the male narrators...

Story is great but the dude's sounds like he's old, doesn't fit very well with the character. The story line is great. The author needs to find a better narrator.

Ruthless Prince

I wasn’t sure about this book with the mix bag of comments I read but it turned out to be a good listen. It had some suspense, revenge, power hungry male alphas, love angst, sex and a HEA to round it off. Is it worth a credit sure if you like all of the above!

Not a mystery

It could have been a lot shorter, the storyline had potential but all of the fluff took away from the story.

Ugh the female narrator

the was the most painful book to listen to. I don't know who thought this woman playing a 19 year old but sounding like a 30 year old was good idea but just NO!!! not only that her reading smexy times was the biggest turnoff. Seriously, stop and think before you pick narrators.

Addictive! Well worth the credits

This is a new author to me and is now one of my favorites! I have binged all of the books in this series and can’t not get enough of the mafia bad asses. If your looking for a good plot bad ass MCs this is a the series. Each are standalone but help to be read in order

I have also found two new favorite narrators! Excellent work! I highly recommend this series!!!

Same Ole Same Ole

This storyline was similar to other books in the genre; nothing original offered. Neither one of the narrators fit the characters in my opinion. Wanted it over with as it didn’t do much to hold my attention.
