Saint (Boston Underworld, #4)

Saint (Boston Underworld, #4)
By A. Zavarelli



When going to war, there are three very simple rules one must abide by. 

1. Know thy enemy
2. Be prepared to sacrifice.
3. Always wear good shoes

After all, revenge is a dish best served in stilettos. 
I’ve got an eye for it, and nothing’s going to stand in my way. 
Not even Rory ‘The Saint’ Brodrick. 
He’s a fool if he thinks he can change me. By the time I’m through with him, I’ll make his mafia look like child’s play. 
Cross me, Mr. Brodrick?
You better cross your heart and hope to die. 


I’m a fighter. A hustler. A mobster. 
I’ve seen a few things in my day. 
But I’ve never encountered anything like her. 
She's a beauty with a beast of a heart. The poison apple I just can't resist. And in her trail she leaves a wake of men crawling on their knees.
What she doesn’t know is that I like my women wild. 
It only makes it that much more fun to tame them.

I have to say I had a hard time getting into the book and that is the only reason for the 4 stars....ok I can say 4 1/2.; but once I did I couldn't put it down. I had to see what was going to happen. They were both hard to remember at first because they were in the first and second books.

Scarlett is something else. She has gone through so much. I got pissed at her lots throughout the book. I just wanted her to see Rory for what he truly was a loyal loving man that would move heaven and earth for her. My heart broke for her in so many ways. I think I would have to do what she set out to do too. They deserved so much and more.

Rory touched my heart like the Reaper did. Such a good man behind the armor of pain. Again they banded together to help each other out. Loyalty and brotherhood. He is sexy as hell too! in a sports car...

Great read once I got into it. Can't wait for more! Booker and Storm please!

Received an ARC from the author. Thank you so much!

Endurance (The Sin Trilogy, #4)

Endurance (The Sin Trilogy, #4)
By Georgia Cates

I'm a doctor. Mobster. Killer.
My hands are covered in filth. I don't have the right to touch anything as clean and pure as Ellison MacAllister.

I distance myself ... always remaining obscure, composed, restrained.
Careful to never allow my eyes to linger too long.
Careful to hide my interest.
Careful to keep my burning desire buried beneath the surface.

I do it for her--suffer in silence--because it's what is best for the woman I love.
And she has no idea.

She'll be initiated as a Fellowship member soon. One of my mafia brothers will go through endurance so he'll earn the right to claim her.
Make her his wife.
Kill. Me. Slowly.

I'm running out of time. Only a month remains before she's beyond my reach forever.
I want to taste her. Share sleepless nights. Ride out her storm.
I want to give her the kind of nights she will still feel between her legs the next morning.
I want us to share the kind of passion that forms on our skin and drips down to saturate the sheets.
Between the sweat and the moans and the messy hair, I want her to know how hard she's been loved.

To have her is to taint her.
I should stay away. But I won't. I can't.
I'm a selfish bastard.
A selfish bastard in love.


Irritating but good

I was waiting for this addition and it was good. I had issues with Jamie and Ellison at times. I just wanted to pound their heads together and call them names.

Jamie was sexy as hell but dumb as a door nail! For a doctor he sure was dumb! You are part of a crime syndicate and you don't think you can protect your girl?!? You are like one of the top dudes too?!? I thought that was a lame excuse, just couldn't buy it. He was sexy and hot! 

Ellison well I wasn't too mad at her but she just did whatever Jamie said and he did hurt her, but she just kept going back. 

Blue and Sin are going those two!

The best part of the book is what is going on with Westlyn. I cannot wait to read that one! She is an interesting girl and I can't wait to get inside her head!

Good read, but irritated me. 

Devil's Mark (The Devil's Keepers, #2)

Devil's Mark (The Devil's Keepers, #2)
 By Megan Crane

Holly Chambless is tired of being the squeaky clean daughter of Lagrange’s holier-than-thou mayor. When her father is charged with corruption, she realizes that her whole life’s been a lie. Now’s her chance to do all the things she never dared, like scoring a job at a bar where reputations go to die, or reconnecting with the biker who sparked a secret hunger in her all those years ago. Holly isn’t a wide-eyed girl anymore—and this time she wants a taste of what has always been denied. 
Killian “Uptown” Chenier has no time for stuck-up princesses. He likes fast bikes and wild sex. Sure, he remembers Holly. He sent her running with a wicked smile and a lesson about prying eyes. And sure, she’s grown up smoking-hot, with a body he’d like to personally desecrate. But Devil’s Keepers business is real and intense. Her daddy stole from the club, leaving his pretty blonde daughter a walking target. And when Uptown takes aim at what he wants, he never misses.


This book took forever and then it ended and fast forwarded so quick I didn't know what hit me. 

The characters were interesting but I didn't seem to be able to get into them. Uptown was blah and really didn't light up my fire. Holly just seemed naive and clueless. Holly would let everyone treat her like crap and then just go along with it. 

The story fast forwarded everything. They had sex once then were married with a kid. There was a storm brewing in the MC, but there was no answers just a fast forward 2 years. was just blah.
