Awesome reviews for ‘em and book #3 was just released today! Our own fellow readers are loving them!

Melanie: Just finished book two in this series and it was INCREDIBLE. If you’re in the mood for a mob/mafia series you have to read this one. I am dying for book 3, releases in March

Lauren: I read book 1 the day it came out & went CRAZY waiting on book 2….now I’m going crazy for book 3. I’ve gotta stop doing this to myself!

Well you can rejoice my friends. Relief is here, ’cause it’s out!! :D

About book #1:

To the outside world, they look like American Royalty, giving to charities, feeding the homeless, rebuilding the city. But behind closed doors is a constant battle for dominance between two Bosses, cultures, and hearts.

Fury burned in his eyes as he breathed roughly through his nose. “My mother told me never to hit a woman, but you are pushing my limits.”

“Funny, my father told me the same thing. Would you like me to apologize?” I pushed my thumbs to his eyes, forcing him to let go of my throat.

We fought and struggled on the ground like savage animals before he picked me up and threw me into the nearest wall.

Ruthless People is a romantic crime fiction set in modern day Chicago, following the life and marriage of Melody Nicci Giovanni and Liam Callahan—rivals by blood and leaders through fear. Their marriage was arranged by their fathers in hopes to end years of bloodshed between the Irish and the Italians.

Liam, next in line to lead the Irish, believes he’s getting a simple-minded wife, one he can control, one who bends to his every need . . . the complete opposite of Melody. Bred to be a Boss, a world-class marksman, master of disguise, with no mercy and no fear. Twenty-four years later, she has achieved more than any man could even dream of, killing anyone who steps in her way. She knows exactly what type of man Liam is, and she would rather die than give up the power she has spent her whole life building. But with no other family left, she must not only learn to work with Liam, but the whole Callahan clan.

The Mafia of the past is evolving, and with rival bosses gunning for them, Melody and Liam will have to figure out how to work as one to take down those who stand in their way, all while keeping up appearances.

Power, Family, and Respect are everything.

My pleasure Shane!! Looks like it’s cliffhanger-y but since #3 was just released I have a feeling there will be relief…
