Book Review - Ruthless People by JJ McAvoy

My Thoughts

Damn fine book. By far one of the best mafia books I have read for sure. This author had me hooked from the very first line of the very first page and didn't let go until the last word and I was left wanting for more. I found myself falling harder for Mel with her strength and I would say sassy, but damn she's a whole lot more than that. I wasn't sure if her husband to be would make it through their first meeting let alone to the wedding. I don't believe that there is another man that could handle Mel like Liam let alone fall so much in love with all that she is. Theirs is an epic love story that makes you look past the crime and violence that fills their life. They are passionate in all they do including each other. Holy hell are they passionate. This is also a story about family and this is definitely a family I want to read more about. I can't wait to read the next book and the next and the next...well, you get the idea.

I give Ruthless People 5 hearts!

About the Book

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.

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.
