Review Tour Hosted by Audiobook Obsession PR
This is going to be a slightly different format from my normal reviews as I’m taking part in a review tour for the audiobook. Thank you, Audiobook Obsession, for giving me the chance to review <3
First let me start by saying I enjoyed the narrators immensely. I think they brought the right amount of emotion to the characters and the story. I also enjoyed the author’s writing style. Catherine Wiltcher is a new author to me but she definitely has some talent and I enjoyed her grasp of the written word.
However…there wasn’t a whole lot of *plot* here–which, if all you’re looking for is some good smut to read (or listen to), then look no further–but I wasn’t really feeling it. I think it was mostly my mood–I am a huge mood reader–but it fell kind of flat for me. I ended up skipping over some of the sex scenes because there was so. Much. Sex.–which, again, if that’s what you’re looking for, you’ll be happy reading this book. Honestly, it frustrated me that the heroine could be fighting mad at the hero one second and the next she’d be salivating for him, and then go back to hating him after the mind-blowing sex. I get that it’s a mafia book and there’s not a whole lot of realism here, lol, but I just wasn’t in the mood for non-stop sex and insta-lust/love. Also, they were constantly calling each other “my angel” and “my devil” when I feel like once–maybe twice–could have sufficed.
I’d give this story a solid 3 stars. It was just okay for me. Worth the listen, but I don’t think I’ll be reading the next book.
If you’re a fan of high level heat and characters with EXTREMELY questionable morals, you’ll enjoy this book. And if you happen to be a bit of an audiophile, I definitely recommend listening to this book because the narrators nailed it.
Definitely check trigger warnings before delving into this one cause it’s certainly a rough ride.
