Wow. What an amazing ride, absolutely loved this series, great suspenseful storyline and loveable characters. Would highly recommend this author
The "Corruption" series audiobooks are another winner from C.D. Reiss. I can't tell you how many times I've listened to this series ever since it was first released. Everything about it was perfect; from the addictive story to the brilliant narration. The entire listening experience was sheer joy.
This series is one of my all time favourites. I fell crazy in love with Antonio and Theresa's story. It is one that is jam packed with steamy sex, intense drama and passion like no other couple in the book world. All of these things have been portrayed superbly by Mindy Kennedy and Brian Pallino. The emotion from the story was carried across so well that this was the first audiobook that made me cry. There are so many heart-stopping moments that I was on the edge of my seat on many occasions.
I loved that this audiobook included a male narrator for the part of Antonio, rather than having just one person play both the male and female parts. This adds realism to the story and I have to say that Brian Pallino's Italian accent was to die for!! He spoke just as sexy as I imagined my Capo to sound.
If you haven't yet listened to an audibook from C.D. Reiss, I stongly recommend you doing so because they are truly the best I have listened to so far. It's not often that I prefer an audible edition to reading the actual book but in this authors case, she gets it right every single time and I am in audiobook heaven whilst listening to CD Reiss's beautiful words being read out loud by such fantastic storytellers. Hence why I can listen to them over and over again!
"WARNING - DO NOT MISS THIS AWESOME LISTEN"
PHEWEEE and Wow - what a breathtaking conclusion to an awesome trilogy this was as it's packed full of high tension, jaw-dropping twists, heart-pounding suspense and chills and thrills as the drama intensifies and the plot moves into the epic realm. Theresa and Antonio are still trying desperately to hold on to one another and both dream and make plans for a mythical future when Antonio can be free from the Mob and all that it's dictating he do to unite the two main families. They're eventually forced to take drastic steps to gain their freedom..... but Antonio isn't prepared to let Theresa walk away from all her family..... no matter what she says and so he tries to spare her heartbreak by making the ultimate sacrifice. However, Theresa has been through too much to just stand back and meekly watch.
Antonio and Theresa deeply love each other, are infatuated by one another and can't keep there greedy little paws off each other which makes for some very intense sex scenes as they both like to verbalize their cravings, their desires and their actions. There's heartbreaking news about Theresa's Brother and, in a very cleverly written twist, her earlier bloody and deadly actions may (indirectly) be the only hope of saving his life. There's an OMG What the ?!?! of a shocking twist as Antonio is reunited with faces from his past that could destroy the loving relationship that he and Theresa have fought so hard for. And, a deadly confrontation with a bitter and vicious enemy, leaves one of them critically wounded, one heartbroken, one scarred, one in Prison.... and both are devastated and lost.
Dual POV's and, once again, the narration was perfecto as Brian Pallino's smooth Italian accent added buckets of sex appeal to this listen.... but both narrators did an amazing job. However, CD Reiss has delivered an outstanding listen that has well loved characters and well described and well orchestrated scenes that you can easily mentally picture and visualize all the unfolding drama as each bountiful Chapter is skilfully revealed.
Worth a credit? I gleefully devoured all three books over one weekend and they were delicious, the plots built and built, the suspense mounted, the love story became more and more intense, there was character growth by a few of the cast and I loved....every....single....minute of it. So YEAH a creditworthy or $-worthy purchase.
Both narrarators are amazing! Mindy Kennedy almost sounded better as Antonio than Brian did!
Antonio is my favorite. He's a perfect walking contradiction!
I loved everything about their performance. They made me feel like I was watching this story unfold in real life and they both have great voices that I could listen to daily and never tire of hearing them.
I did listen to this book all in one sitting. I plugged in as soon as I got to work and finished it at the end of the work day. I even skipped lunch because I just couldn't stop listening.
It's worth a credit and if you don't have a credit, it's worth whatever Audible is charging for it. I guarantee you won't be disappointed!
"Loved the story"
Loved it. I have read all the books again loosely connected. And, I am not a big fan of this ending at all. The prolong sucked. so I hope we get more even as a background from another book.
"1st time reader of CD Reiss books."
I rated this book a 3 because I'm not a fan of the extreme vulgarity. The story was ok. The narrators were great!
"Listened to it 3 times"
It's a gruff love story with many ups and downs. everyone is some level of a bad guy. Love it!!
"A trilogy I will listen to many,many times...."
I will miss these characters so much this trilogy will go to the top of my relisten list. What started out for me as a predictable love story ended in a fierce fight for that love! The story was great and the narration one of the best I have listened to. This trilogy made me a Reiss fan and will continue listening to her work!
"AN EPIC ENDING TO A FANTASTIC SERIES"
What a great ending for Theresa and Antonio! Theresa was like her own little one woman mafioso wrecking ball, calling the shots wherever she went. I loved her character, and her feistiness. Although the writing was excellent, the narration truly brought these characters to life in a way that I felt to my gut. Mindy Kennedy could've read the entire thing--I loved her as Antonio, and in fact, preferred her to Brian Pallino.
The family dynamics in this series has been one of the most intriguing parts of this series. I hope there's more from the Draysen family because I'm definitely a fan of all their dirty little secrets.
Couldn't wait to get in my car and listen more. Scandalous, sexy, compelling, exciting, and more....
"worth every word"
such an amazingly wonderful story. Sometimes trilogies seem to drag on but this series was amazing! I really enjoyed it and I'm sad the story is over.
What a great author. I love the use of onomatopoeia. This series was exciting and steamy. The narration was really good. I like the sexy male voice. Great job.
