Summary

Number one best seller

I’ll protect her...whether she likes it or not.

Riona Griffin is gorgeous, intelligent, and iron-willed. My perfect woman, except she hates my guts. She thinks she doesn’t need anybody. But she needs me.

She’s being hunted by an assassin who never misses his mark.

I’m going to stay by her side, day and night, keeping her safe. Riona thinks that’s a fate worse than death, but I know she’ll learn to love me.

If this hit man wants to kill her, he’ll have to go through me first.

Broken Vow is the wild and dangerous fifth installment in the Brutal Birthright series. It's a stand-alone bodyguard mafia romance with a HEA and no cliff-hanger. Contains steamy scenes.

Soo good!

Riona is fierce and loyal to her family and wants to earn her spot. She hates people thinking just because she is family she is getting special treatment. When somebody decides they want her dead she has a hard time knowing who it is and what the vendetta is. Why her?

Raylan becomes her body guard and when the hits getting increasingly more dangerous he has to make a split second decision.

This book took a turn I didn't see coming. I was surprised by quite a bit of the events and definitely was kept on my toes and the edge of my seat. I didn't know what was going to happen or who to trust. It was thrilling! I enjoyed the entire ride.

Wen Ross and PJ Morgan did AMAZING on this audio!

My Thoughts on Broken Vow

What a great addition to this series. Sophie Lark has really made an impression on me with this.

Broken Vow features Riona and Raylan. Raylan was introduced in the last book and made a great first impression with his loyalty and humor. Riona has been present since the beginning. She's always come across as fierce, intelligent and devoted to her family. It was even better really getting inside her head. She is such a strong leading lady and I loved her. And Raylan was a good balance for her. He was so chill and laid back. Even knowing he could be extremely dangerous to the wrong person didn't make him less likeable. He was the yin to her yang and clearly gave her what she really needed.

There were so many unexpected moments. So many things I didn't see coming. But it made it the kind of book you didn't want to put down. It just flowed so well.

The narrators were also amazing. Both gave such life to the story and I especially enjoyed the new to me female narrator P.J. Morgan.

Dark Mafia Romance

Broken Vow By Sophie Lark is a dark mafia romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Wen Ross and P.J. Morgan. This is the fifth book in the Brutal Birthright series and each book can be read as a stand-alone.

I absolutely love Sophie’s books! This series just keeps getting better and better. I was hooked from the first chapter and couldn’t wait to see what was going to happen next. I really enjoyed the relationship that bloomed between Riona and Raylan.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Heavy Crown to be released on audio so I can get Sebastian and Yelena's story.

Wen and P.J. did an amazing job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book if you like mafia romances, bodyguard romances, contemporary romance, or romantic suspense.

Riona and Raylan

Book 5 of the Brutal Birthright Series.

Narration by Wen Ross and PJ Morgan.

Riona was introduced to us in the first book of The Brutal Birthright Series.

Raylan is tasked with protecting her when her life is threatened.

PJ is new to me. She was really compelling as the tough lawyer who is opened up by Raylan when these two are trying to figure out how they can stop who’s trying to kill her.

There’s so much that happened in this book. Sophie writes such detailed stories that weave so many emotions into them. All of these books in this awesome series are distinct and so involved it makes for such an awesome listen.

I love Wen Ross and his portrayal of Raylan as a Tennessean retired military man was steamy and his sense of family and honour shone through here.

I loved this book in this amazing series.

Great story and the narrators do a brilliant job!

I so wanted to read more about Rayland and Riona now we got their story. Riona finds herself in a dangerous situation, Dante calls Rayland and assigns him as her bodyguard. Their connection is intense, their interactions make you feel the sexual tension between them. I love Riona so much, she is a strong, independent, and intelligent heroine. The book is narrated by the very talented Wen Ross, his accent is brilliant for Rayland, and P.J. Morgan did also f fantastic job with the audiobook, I can say I have enjoyed the audiobooks of this series more than just reading, it gives you a different experience so I totally recommend them.

Intense!

Broken Vow is another intense story in the Brutal Birthright series. Raylan and Riona are both likable, strong characters that are thrown together in this exciting storyline. Riona doesn't want to like Raylan but she can't resist the sexual chemistry that they share. It is hot and steamy and filled with danger and suspense. Wen Ross and P.J. Morgan both did an amazing job bringing this story to life.

Riona's ice cold demeanor melts with Raylan!

Sophie lark, I bow down to your masterful way with words!! You have managed  to get me  to love Riona. And boy, did I love her in this book.

Riona finds herself in need of a bodyguard after a couple attempts are made on her life. You don't know why or who, but, we get some more Raylan ( who we met in Dante's book!)
Raylan is one hot ex military cowboy bodyguard! He is determined to protect her with his life and get her to loosen up.
Sophie doesn't disappoint with this book and the suspense in between the hotter than hell, sizzling chemistry between these two.

Raylan is one dirty dirty sexy man! I'll never look at a barn the same again.
Giddy up.. holy hot barn sex Batman!!

This book had a surprise twist I did not see coming!
I'm hoping there's another book in the works with Raylan's sister, Beau!!

Now I really need Sebastian's book please!!

Narration by Wen Ross as Raylan was on point. He had that perfect Tennessee southern drawl down.
I've never listened to PJ Morgan before and I think she nailed Riona's character!

Broken Vow

Broken Vow is the fifth book in the Brutal Birthright series. This book could be read as a standalone. This book is told from dual points of view by Riona and Raylan.

Riona is a strong heroine. However, when she is attacked in a swimming pool, her brother wants her to have a bodyguard 24/7. This bodyguard turns out to be Raylan. They had a rocky past, and she didn't want him around. He does his job.

As they are together 24/7 they get to know each other a lot better and feelings start to evolve. Can they find out who is after Riona? What will happen between the two when she no longer needs Raylan as a bodyguard? Will they get their happily ever after or will their futures send them separate ways?

I really enjoyed this book, and am excited to see what happens next in this series.

Wen Ross is HOT! 🔥

What could be better than a cowboy and a soldier who is the same man? NOTHING!!! Oh! My! Goodness! I love Raylan! I would let him follow me around and be my bodyguard any day. I was never really fond of Riona, but she actually grew on me during this book. I believe she was misunderstood, and it took someone like Raylan to bring out the real person inside of her.

When she goes back to Tennessee with him and meets his family, she falls in love with the simplicity of the place. She’s not used to the southern hospitality. My brother-in-law’s family is from North Carolina, and they are so much like Raylan’s family. Sophie got it right explaining how people are down there. Plus, my adopted son was born in Knoxville, so it was fun having that city a part of the story.

Sophie couldn’t have picked a better narrator to voice Raylan. He was great with all the accents, but I swooned over Raylan. P.J. was awesome for Riona, too.

Raylan was Great!

Another great addition to the series. Raylan deserves a medal for dealing with Riona. Riona becomes a slightly warmer person instead of the cold fish she was before. All this because of Raylan. After a death threat where they almost succeeded, Raylan is her 24/7 bodyguard and he takes her to his family home until the killer is caught. Raylan appears that he is not phased by her attitude. I was hoping for a better ending though. There is a happy for now but it felt rather abrupt. What happens to them next? Wen Ross was great and P.J. Morgan came off like a cold, all business, annoying woman. Initially, Riona was not likeable but eventually she got a little better.

Broken Vow

what the heck, I kinda gotta say I didn't really like Riona in the 1st few books. she was rude and uptight for my liking. but in this book she really let herself go and be more human. It's like they say it will take the right man to tame a woman like her, and the good thing is that he didn't want to change her. he fell in love with her just the way she is and that's the best part. this is a must read. you'll have a different perspective on Riona. I no I did. the narrator did a really great job too 👏👍

love this series

Riona needs a bodyguard after an attempt on her life. Dante recommends Raylan. Riona is not too pleased with Dante's choice, but she trusts his recommendations.
As they try to figure out who wants her killed, Raylan decides it would be safer to leave Chicago and go to his family ranch.
That is where their magic begins. This story is emotional, Conflict, danger, oh steamy hot sex. This story is a standalone, but all characters are interconnected within each book. I suggest reading this amazing series from the beginning.
Wen Ross and PJ Morgan are excellent narrators portraying all the emotions, love, angst and feelings of each character . I really enjoyed listening to this story. 🎧audiobookobsessionreviewer🎧

Save a Lawyer, Ride a Cowboy Mercenary

Title: Broke Vow
Author: Sophie Lark
Format: Audio
Narrators: P.J. Morgan, Wen Ross
Genre: Romantic suspense, mafia, military, enemies to lovers, bodyguard
Standalone: yes
Part of a Series: Brutal Birthright book 5
POV: Riona, Raylan
Steam Level: Slow burn to steam
5/5

Broken Vow is the fifth book in the Brutal Birthright series. Each book is a standalone featuring a different couple from two mafia families in Chicago. We met Raylan before in book 4 and Riona has been a secondary character throughout the series. Broken Vow references the first time Raylan and and Riona met and some other events from previous books but none of these things are pertinent to this story. Just fun for readers of this series. I'm reading it in order and I'd recommend doing so (because it's a great series) but it's not necessary.

Broken Vow is action-packed from the start, beginning with someone attempting to kill Riona and make it look like an accident. Raylan is called in to guard Riona and this get crazier from there. I love Raylan and Wen Ross did a fantastic job narrating him. He slipped into Raylan's southern accent so well that I actually forgot it was Wen Ross narrating. I love how Raylan's down-home personality, charm and sense of humor is deceiving in that people underestimate how smart and resourceful he is. I haven't been a big fan of Riona throughout this series. But Broken Vow gets under her prickly surface and shows her soft underbelly. I loved that she was also able to take care of herself while learning to rely on others (Raylan, mainly). I was intrigued and didn't figure out who wanted Riona dead until close to the reveal. Sophie Lark is an amazing writer and this series just keeps getting better. Also, I want Bo's story.

I received this audiobook for free from Pink Flamingo Productions and Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

Another Great Addition to the Series!

This is the fifth book in the Brutal Birthright Series, a Dark Bodyguard Mafia Romance. This is a series of interconnected standalones romance. I love this Series! Raylan and Riona’s story is entertaining, suspenseful, and action packed! Riona is a wonderful character, strong, smart, and capable. Raylan is a handsome bodyguard and cowboy, caring and protective. The storyline is intricate, and captivating, filled with danger, mystery, secrets, and intrigue. I loved to see the characters from the first books. Wen Ross and P.J. Morgan did an amazing job with the narration. I enjoyed it. If you like mafia romance, this series is for you! Looking forward to listen to Heavy Crown, the next book in the series. #PinkFlamingoProductions #ALC #AudiobookObsession

Broken Vow

This is the fifth book in the Brutal Birthright series. Riona Griffin is a no nonsense lawyer. She holds herself to an extremely high standard. She is a woman at the top of a man's world. Raylan Boone is a mercenary that was in the military with Dante Gallo. When Riona has hit out on her Raylan is called to be her bodyguard until the killer is found. There is instant sexual tension and heat between Riona and Raylan. This series just keeps getting better and better every book. Can't wait for Sebastian's book. PJ Morgan and Wen Ross are phenomenal narrating this book.
