1. Don’t ask any personal questions.
2. Don’t show up at her house unannounced.
3. Don’t ever, ever let anyone know you’re friends.
For three years, I followed the rules. Vicky and I met once a week at the diner where I worked. I was her slice of normalcy, she was the one person I could confide in. It might have been unconventional, but it worked for us.
One night, all hell broke loose and I got caught up in a battle of bloodshed where we almost lost our lives. I ended up face to face with Vicky’s dangerous older brothers. Anthony, William, and Nicholas Civella–the made men of the Kansas City Mob.
After fighting for my life and proving myself worthy, they brought me into their deadly world. It was glamorous but twisted. Torture, death, and crime followed me everywhere I went, chiseling away at parts of me until I wasn’t the same anymore.
Slowly, I betrayed my best friend, and fell in love.
Chances are they’ll ruin me. This thing between us has deadly consequences. But in this criminal world, I’m learning that the rules don’t apply when you’re the boss.
Lita T’s Book Review: 4 Stars
Malice by Coralee June Juliet works hard to make ends meet. She has the weight on her shoulders of caring for her grandmother who has Parkinson. The doctor visits and the medication along with the illness is more than a high school graduate should have to deal with plus the memory and agony of her mother who has been missing for years. Juliet’s bright spot is her friendship with Vicky. Unfortunately Vicky is a mafia princess and the friendship is based on 3 rules. When the two worlds collide the story takes off. I was intrigued with reading this story based on the previous books I have read by this author and I was not let down. When Juliet ends up at the mercy of the eldest brother Nicholas aka Malice, her world is turned upside down. Like Alice in Wonderland she falls down the rabbit hole and lands in the land of the Mafia. Juliet is torn and tested by not only Malice but his youngest brother Anthony who is a little sick and demented and William the middle brother who she thought was Vicky’s bodyguard. Each brother was different in ther own right and each has an eye for Juliet. Just a very good read. I loved it from the very beginning to the last page. It was something about the way I cared about the characters that had me interested. A 4 star read for me.
Bettina A’s Book Review: 4 Stars
I am starting my review with 18% of the book left to read. I am torn between loving this book and being annoyed with it. I love the dark aspect of this book. Nicolas aka Malice, William, and Anthony all have a darkness about them that all talks to Juliet in a way. They are hot! I like Juliet’s character because she has a backbone and isn’t afraid to show it off. Now the annoying part of the book. 3/4 of the Civella siblings remind me of children fighting over a toy. Honestly Anthony is my favorite brother of the three. I’m off to finish the story. At 87% and all I can say is damn. That was a betrayal I didn’t see coming. Finished the book and I don’t know what to think about it. I feel like somethings where left unfinished. I doubt there will be a book two but one can hope, right.
