Summary

Once upon a time, there was a girl who stopped believing in fairytales after her innocence was stolen.

Morgan Myers is tired. So damn tired. Most people either push her around or brush her off, and she's not putting up with it anymore. Determined to reclaim the life that had been stolen from her, she puts her trust in the last person she ever expected to: the notorious Scar. Morgan sees a side of him that few people seem to know - the man, not the myth. Lorenzo. And what she sees, she likes, a lot more than she thought she would.

But fairytales aren't real, as life likes to remind her. Some dragons, you just can't slay, no matter how hard you fight them. And when hers comes back around, breathing fire, she's forced to face some unimaginable horrors. But lucky for Morgan, there's a white knight in combat boots out there that isn't afraid of monsters.

You see, it's impossible to be afraid of something you face every day in the mirror.

Contains mature themes.

CAN YOU BASK IN A BOOK?

Can you bask in a book?

Honestly I sat there, laid there and listened to this on audio and I just didn't want it to end.

Grievous is the second book Conclusion to Menace.



Lorenzo and Scarlet's relationship has certainly come a long way from the intense relationship they first had in book one. Lorenzo and Scarlet were like two flames that fed off each other.

In Grievous Lorenzo continue to have that crazy intense and passionate connection.

I enjoyed the transition of Lorenzo going from hard boss to hero.

I loved the journey the characters take in this book, the battles the characters faced and still face that leave them marred and not without mental and physical scars but the crescendo to the hea satiating.

I enjoyed everything about this story, the thrill, the anticipation, the characters, the villains, the ending.

Lorenzo is the kind of character with a hardness, a man of little emotion, a man who is feared and without meaning to be at times he is so damn funny and you could say he's a smooth criminal, I loved him.





Scarlett as Lorenzo calls her or Morgan is feisty, a woman with backbone, a woman who has been through so much in her lifetime and still she stands tall and continues in her quest to find her daughter while she herself is being hunted by a Russian mafia boss.

J.M Darhowers Writing is impeccable with a plot that is unpredictable and gritty at times. I love mafia romance and this is absolutely brilliant I loved every moment and can't wait to read more from this audio.

like I said; I listened to this on audio, these narrators are absolutely brilliant and really bring the characters to life, Lorenzo sounds smooth, hot, I loved his sarcasm and the way he plays any acts of niceties off. Lorenzo is a villain who in the end becomes a hero. I think I got more out of this book by listening to the audio version so I recommend it.

A Brilliant and recommended duet for any Mafia romance lovers.

Contains plenty of hot scenes, has an element of darkness and grit, is told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.

Worth a listen!

This is book two which begins where the cliffhanger ending of book one leaves off. It gives a good summary of book one, but book one is so worth a listen!!! I recommend listening to book one first (but it is not really necessary).

In general, I do not care for cliff hangers. As book two was available when I read book one it was not a big deal for me. I immediately listened to book 2 in the series.Lorenzo and Scarlet begin to accept their life together .... although it is not a "defined" relationship as such. There are two broken people trying to cope in the violent world they were forced into.

Iggy Toma's performance made it a worth while listen. This series is the first time I had heard his performance and I will be sure to look for him again. He brought sarcasm and wit and developed Lorenzo's character brilliantly. I used a credit for both books and do not regret it! This story line checked all my boxes, strong female lead, excellent narration, well developed story line with a twist ...... I will look for this author again!

Perfect score!

I listen to a lot of books, and even those that Ive loved in the past can not compete with these 2 books. They are perfectly coordinated. From the book cover looking exactly like I would have imagined him, to the most spot on narrators playing their roles perfectly, and finally- a really well written story. This tale straddles the lines of several genres, and does it with perfect balance. The romance is heart warming without being mushy, the sex is hot but not on every other page, the action is constantly moving but you never get lost.
Also, if you have a dry sarcastic sense of humor, you will find yourself laughing throughout both books. It's the ridiculous juxtaposition of a killer who can't get his straw into a Capri Sun. Or the insanity of a hard core mafia type killer who raised a brother that is totally straight laced. It leads to many laughable moments. I totally recommend that the stories be read in order. Heck, just read them!

Amazing

The second portion of the series is just as good as the first. Still breaking the 4th wall and still with irreverent humor during Lorenzo's parts.

The love Lorenzo and Morgan have isn't for everyone, after all he is rather insane and likes to antagonize her, but she gives just as good as she gets.

One thing that bugged me though was how stupid Morgan was while being held. She claimed that she would never be broken but there is a difference between being broken and being stubborn to the point of being suicidal.

Once again the narrators were amazing in their voices.

Loved this duet! Narrators were fantastic!!!

4.5 Stars. I really loved this duet! (Menace is to be read first) I can’t stress enough how great the narrators are in this book! The female narrators little girl voice is wonderful and they both did a spectacular Russian accent!
The story is great too.
The only thing that bothered me is that the author uses the word laughed to much in this book. Certain parts it was every other sentence. He laughed, she laughed, I laughed... I mean there has to be other ways to write emotion bc these were not laughing situations most of the time.
Other than that I absolutely loved these books!

Darkly Romantic

This was a truly great series. The only thing is the first book ended on a bit of a climax and I had a desperate need to download the next one asap. This book was written in a unique way intergrading the reader into the story. Its was a emotional roller coaster and I loved it.
