Summary

There were always whispers about my roommate at Hillcrest Academy. 

The wealthiest of the wealthy sent their kids to our boarding school, and Brooke Bennett had been at the top, though I never quite knew why. She was fun and outgoing, but she kept quiet about her family. The only things she showed me were photographs of her brothers. 

I became fascinated with her second-oldest brother. Kai Bennett. 

He was the most of them all. Smoldering. Hypnotic. Alluring.
Kai had eyes that pulled me in and a face that haunted my dreams. 

Then I met him. 

He came to our school with their father, and that’s when I learned what kind of family Brooke came from. They were mafia, and Brooke’s oldest brother was dead. Her father said accident, but Brooke said murder. 

Three months later, her father died, and Kai became the head of the Bennett Family. Brooke left Hillcrest for good, and that was the last time I saw her. 

Fourteen years later, I’m staring at her face on the television. Brooke is missing. 

Two days later, Kai Bennett kidnaps me.

Enter Kai Bennett - my new favourite book boyfriend

Each book that Tijan writes just gets better and better. I don’t think it’s possible, but she does it every single time. Bennett Mafia may just be her best yet, I truly believe that. Two heroes, yes two, because believe me Kai Bennett was not the only hero in this story, I think Riley may have surpassed him for that title, it was a close call. Action, romance with lots of expected, unexpected twists and turns, because let’s face it, this is a Tijan book we’re reading. Nothing is predictable, and I mean nothing. My heart was in my mouth, I was laughing, I was crying, I was hoping, I was praying. I was completely hooked. Mafia romance at its best. I loved the Bennett family, all of them, even when I didn’t. Kai most of all, he was lethal, he was bad, he was good, he was my perfect mafia hero, one step ahead all the time. Riley was passionate, stubborn and the perfect match for my new favourite book boyfriend. I was hooked from the get-go. Perfect story, perfect writing, perfect narration, perfect everything.

Love Tijan❤️but hated narrator💔

Tijan writes great books, her Fallen Crest series is my fav all time in that genre! I believe reading this book would may be the answer because I couldn’t get past the narrator, unfortunately. My god, her voice thru every word, sentence , hell the entire book sounded like a hysterical woman, a woman who had just run up screaming at a principal for giving her son a B instead of an A. In other words, over excited & spazzed out about not much.She made this book so unbelievable i was cringing and forcing myself to finish because of my loyalty to the author.
Please Tijan, pleeeeeze never use her again!
Sure this book had the elements of a dangerous world but come on... the protagonist is written as a girl whose grown up around mafia & the violence etc surrounding it. The narration was just waaaay off. Ugh I hate writing this review but there u go!

Loved the book. The audible version not so much.

I wasn’t able to listen to the entire book. I’ll re-read the book version instead.

Narrator is too dramatic all the time

This is the first book I have listened to with this narrator. I am not sure if she was directed to be so dramatic and over the top or not. I feel it takes away from the story for me. Makes me wish I had just started this on my kindle instead of trying to listen to it. Her male voices were also sort of lacking and almost comical at times.

After chapter 16 I bought the kindle version and continued to read it there. I could not listen anymore. The narration sounded like a hysterical person 2/3 of the time and that was ruining the story for me.

WHAT A WILD UNSTOPPABLE RIDE

Well Tijan, what a wonderful surprise this riveting meaty adult Mafia story was.. as chapter after chapter I never knew where you’d take the story, what you’d sucker punch me with next or how it could all get resolved. The good girl with a dark background and the dangerous Boss with an equally dark past.. and a darker future. The intense chemistry was there from their very first brief teen meeting.. but it would be fourteen years before they’d be forced to meet again - and when they did.. it’s a clash of wills. It’s also non-stop drama, suspense, tension, family angst, bloodshed, secrets, shocking revelations, heartache and a strained relationship between a cold-blooded genius and his kidnapped angel of mercy.

A good Mafia story is my kryptonite.. and this well-written story wasn’t just good - it was great. Told entirely from the heroine’s PoV it also has sex, passion, shocks, character development, chills and thrills. The brilliant narration by Natalie Eaton brought the binge-worthy plot to life.

Worth a credit? It’s in the Romance Package folks so it’s pretty much free.. but I would’ve happily used a credit on it.

Great story but narrator was over dramatic

I am a huge huge fan of Tijan books and this one is great but not a huge fan of how it was narrated. Personally I was catching myself frustrated because the narrator was over dramatic and sometimes I felt like she was yelling out the scenes. Not really that good and make voices either

I liked the story but not so much the narrator.

It took a while for me to get into the story because of the over the top dramatic reading style of the narrator. I know that there was a lot going on in the be but I coul not catch my own breath because I was matching my breaths to hers. Not good. Just a little to distracting. The story was a lot but I did like it. It took a long time for them to talk to each other

Beautifully Dark

I just love a strong female lead, and an author that is able to show her vulnerable side without making her weak. Truly a beautifully dark story

Tijan never fails, Narration does

Another new and different classic in the Tijan body of work!

Characters are great and I would love to read more about the secondary ones we meet in their own story; alas though, the author points out on her Amazon page that this is a standalone read.

Pity :(
