Summary

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.

I had a plan.

Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?

Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.

That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn't buying that either.

Too bad for him, I won't let anyone get in the way of my mission.

Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He's the worst kind of wrong - and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.

Because they took her from me, and I'm going to make them pay.

UNDERWORLD HEA

I thought narrator Tracy Marks was alright especially with her Belfast accent.

I loved Crow an Irish Club & Lachlan 2nd in charge sounds sexy as f**k, someone you couldn't say no to & this is what happened to Mackenzie who had got herself noticed knocking out 1 of their men in the ring. So she then turns up at their club undercover to search & find out what had happened to her childhood friend, who joined their club as a dancer & Mac got nowhere with any police enforcement.
But Lach didn't wavy to know until she gave a div story, then the Russians wanted him to kill her & for him to marry one of their girls.
But he just couldn't do it not knowing why, so these 2 feisty people didn't want love, didn't want each other, well that was until they couldn't stop themselves. So we see these 2 become closer & THEY each know they have to do what they've intended to do so have lied & it's from here after a couple of months they realise their feelings have become stronger & need to tell each other & it's here things start to heat up in the action...
FANTASTIC READ

great narration

I really enjoyed the twists and turns through this book. Zavarelli books are pretty predictable but quite gripping. I have enjoyed the ones I've listened to and intend to buy more books from this author.
There was some criticism on the need for a male narrator for such a large male part, I found I didn't notice - which is accolade indeed as I now pick books based more on the narrator than the author, as some gave crucified very good stories with bad narration.

Great Mafia Romance

I am currently loving mafia romance and my first read by A Zavarelli is no different. Told in dual POV we have hot has all hell, Lachlan Crow, the second in command to the Irish Mafia, and Mackenzie Wilder, daughter of an Irish American Boxer, and a girl on a mission to find her missing friend. With no luck from the authorities she decides to infiltrate the Irish underworld and in doing so she succeeds in getting more than she bargained for. With lots of action from the get-go, the story was passionate, it was gritty and the supporting characters did a fantastic job of making it believable (in a far fetched mafia way) I loved the chemistry between Lachlan and Mackenzie, two extremely strong people that have to learn to trust each other whilst not forgetting their end goal, but when feelings start getting involved all bets are off. I will definitely be looking into reading more of Boston Underworld. Tracy Marks did a fantastic job narrating Mackenzie, however I was not keen on her narration or accent of Lachlan, I think I would have preferred a male voice.

Great story but needs an Irish male narrator

I really enjoyed the story and Tracy's voice was really suited to Mac, however, I wish this had been dual narration, having an Irish man's voice would really have brought it to life as listening to Tracy play Lachlan and the male parts, the Irish accent was off.

Interesting listen

When I started this book I had a hard job getting into it I got close to tossing it, but stayed with it and was really pleased that I did good unexpected story , with lots of twists and turns will look forward to future books in series. Whilst the narrator did a super job my personal point of view would be to have a female and male narrator as Lachlan is a very strong role

Dark and Mysterious

Not typically a fan of dark romance, I find myself pleasantly surprised by this first book in the Boston Underworld series.

I will admit that it took me a little longer to get invested into the story, but in the end, I didn't want to reach the conclusion. Luckily for me, the series continues.

Tracy Marks is surprising as the narrator. She is able to fully convince me with her male character's. And her accents are fascinating and I believe spot on.

This Will Burn So Good

So hot, it might burn! The Boston Underground is a steamy, sexy and dark mafia romance series that makes bad guys seem almost good... or at least, incredibly alpha males that will make you swoon. Oh, and definitely listen to this series - the narrators are amazing and enhance the story.

Love....Against All Odds. 💕

This book has so much going for it.....an interesting deep plot, likable characters, bad guys, action, suspense, love, and mystery. It's the kind of book that keeps you on the edge. You never know what to expect. It's a true "escape". The kind of story that you know would never be personally real but you enjoy the diversion. 😀 Loved the ending. 💑

I liked this book but call me a romantic....because I still enjoy stories that have more romance than sex. I know...I know...you're going to say "but this is a Mob story"....yes, I guess I would expect some sex, but when there is so much explicit sex in a book it can take away a lot of the sensual build up....the anticipation. But...even still, this is a well written story filled with suspense and the rawness of gangsters 😬.

The narration was perfect. Each voice was unique and the accents were quite good. Doesn't get much better. Great job! 🐾

(Note: This book has explicit sex and strong language. Adults only recommended)

An Edgy, Intense, Gripping Five Star Romance!

Wow, I loved this story, and have so many great things to say about Crow which was written by A. Zavarelli and narrated by Tracy Marks. This story deserves all Five Stars, and if it was possible to give more stars, I would.

~ Crow has an edgy and intense plot told from both Mac and Lachlan's POV's. The story moves at a great pace, and has all kinds of twists. Mac goes in "unofficially" uncover to get information about her missing friend where she meets one of the leaders Crow Lachlan; however, she soon learns once you enter the mafia, you do not leave unless you go out in a body bag or if they will allow it.

~ The attractions between Lachlan and Mac was immediate, raw, intense, and they were drawn to each other like a moth to a flame. Regardless of the secretes or mistrust between them, the sex scenes were primal, raw, and full of need. Lachlan dominated while Mac wanted to please.

~ I could feel my anxiety building waiting for the moment when Lachlan learns of Mac's betray, and really wanted to take few breaks throughout the story from all the intensity but was helpless and had to keep listening.

~ There is great character development throughout the story, and you got to know some of the characters and what they have been through.

~ The narrations by Tracy Marks is remarkable, and you could tell she put a lot of effort into narrating this story. I loved the accents and how each character had their own voice. She did a great job of projecting the different emotions throughout the story.

I've never been big fan of contemporary romances; however, this story was amazing, really held my attention, and could just possibly sway to the contemporary side. I highly recommend this story to fan of contemporary stories and likes them slightly on the darker side or with a mafia themes. Well worth my time! :-).

Great Book, AWESOME Narration!

This book was hard to rate because I loved so much of it but In between that I found it dragged a little too. It wasn't a lot but there were a few parts in the beginning that I wondered if it was going to pick up and go anywhere. There we also a few "out there" things that I just couldn't find believable. In the end I decided I enjoyed all the other stuff so much more than I disliked those few little things. This book has it all from danger to love and a super hot sexy couple with secrets! The narrator Tracy Marks was great, I love her voice and enjoyed her accents in this book.

This series is awesome!!

I admittedly listened to this series out of order, as I listened to Reaper first because of a friends recommendation. But after listening to Reaper, I had to go back and listen to Crow too. Wow! Both books are so well done. These books have everything- a great story that is well written, strong and believable heroines, hot heroes, and superb narration. Hands down the best series I have heard in a long time. Can't wait for the next book!

Wow!!! Just Amazing! One Of The Best!

This audiobook truly deserves over 5 stars! The author created an amazing story! I could not put it down. I was on the edge of my seat and what an amazing Rollercoaster ride it was! I was supposed to go to bed early last night! So much for that!

It has everything I look for in a book: action, danger, intrigue, suspense, drama, and romance! It is written in a Dual POV which I prefer. To top it off it also has A HEA ending! I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. Definitely a credit worthy audiobook!!!

The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. I felt like she nailed the accents! The characters are well developed and you get to know Mack & Lachlan well.

This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion.

Omg if you know what south Boston sounds like!!!

First off, decent story, worth the price. But if you are from the north east at all, the Narrator will screw it up for you, don't listen. Im not from the northeast, but my husband's from boston, and the British lady narrator with the fake southie accent had me cringing. ..
It's a good story, mob,sex,love, all things to dream about. except the lady narrator, she does the man irish really well, but its like the only part of the boston accent she can do are the words with "R" in them, so you know while she's reading this book, she's a proper brit, her real tone comes trough.
