Only something as important as her best friend's wedding to mob boss Gabriel Moretti could allow Nika Paynne a reprieve from captivity. Her abusive husband has kept her under his thumb with footage of her beloved brother, Caleb, killing another man. But the respite from her violent life isn't the only draw. Vincente Romani - Gabriel's deadliest guardian - will be one of the best men at the wedding, and Nika has lingering thoughts about the fascinating mobster...covetous thoughts that may put her life in danger.

Where does The Salvation of Vengeance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

If you can get past the weak premise for the whole story then the characters were very fun especially the hero who was quite entertaining. I do wish the female characters were as fun. I read this one first and based on it I am going to give the first one in the series a go. Guarantied happy ever after which I always enjoy.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maxism, I looked online and his will be the next book due out later in the year so I am looking forward to that.

Mack might be, to all intents and purposes, a normal looking human, but she lives with a pack of shapeshifters in Cornwall in rural England after being dumped there by her mother when she was just a young child. She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won't allow the transformation to occur.

The Cornwall you never knew existed.

The heroine got a little bit whiny from time to time but it was nice to see her try her best and not need rescuing all the time like so many other heroines in this genre.
