Summary

They call him the Joker, but he doesn't joke. He doesn't even smile - until her. 

She's independent, stubborn, strong, and she won't be one of his toys. 

He's not like other men; he takes what he wants, and he wants her.

There are whispers: He's a gangster...that his family has ties to the Italian Mafia. No one dares to cross him, until a hit is put out on his newest obsession. What they don't know is just how crazy he really is when it comes to her. 

He'll do anything - even go to war.

Complete stand-alone, HEA, no cheating.

Disappointed 😔

I was expecting more from this book maybe because of the name. The narrators were not good. It was like they were reading the pages without emotions. The storyline was not exciting or held my interest. It was very hard to get through this book. Maybe there will be stories for the other characters. I wasted my money 😖

3.5 Stars

This is the first time in a long time that sadly narrators did not do a great job bringing a book to life for me. They did a decent job at narrating but I felt they were missing emotion into the characters and i really wanted to love their voices. The story itself had a good pace and did a good job bringing background to the characters and weaving their story. I did feel there were a few little holes in the story line and I would have like to have a little more story/background in parts.

If you are looking for a good listen to pass time this listen is for you.

Narrators weren’t for me.

First I want to say that I absolutely adore this story of Grace and Thaddeus! They are truly a romance I loved reading about.

I didn’t click with the narrators at all, though. I felt the male was way older, didn’t have a hint of Italian accent, and was very monotone. I just couldn’t imagine him as Thaddeus. I didn’t know his name at the time but I’ve had an issue with him reading other books as well. The female narrator was better, her male voice was better too, but again I just couldn’t imagine her as Grace. When they would read to each other (like a real conversation) it felt forced an awkward.

I was disappointed with the audio, but loved the story enough to listen through.

GREAT START TO ANOTHER SERIES!

This was a great start to this series! This story is full of romance. The narration was great. The author did a great job with the character builds and plot. I look forward to reading more books in this series! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I need a Gangster

Gangster is not what I expected when I decided to take a dive in the mafia world. It was so much more. The mystery of it all sucked me in from the start, laying a seductive plot that grabbed and held my attention while making me read this entire book in one sitting. Thaddaeus courted Grace based off his Grandfather's principles and he radiates power as he is all Italian Alpha. I was immediately drawn to his character.
Grace is a woman with backbone and not afraid of the man most people in Chicago fear. She is your average career woman and has no idea who the famous Joker is. So, when she does not shy away from him like everyone else, she attracts his attention. This was a great story and I highly recommend

A great book!

A great listen. A great book. Bella and Joker are a great gangster couple. When you fall in love, that’s it. Gangster or not, the heart wants what it wants.

Thaddeus and Grace

I read this book a long time ago and enjoyed it then but listening to it brought it to a new level. Thaddeus and Grace embark on a sinfully seductive, intriguing, and absolutely adorable journey and I loved it! Narration was great.
