Summary

I'm not a good man, but I'm damn good at what I do.

I was raised to be ruthless, and as muscle for the Petrov mafia, that's all I am.Then she got caught in the crossfire, and when it was over, she was mine - given as a temporary gift. Once a mafia princess, now just a bargaining chip, she wasn't a part of my plans. She's scared, alone, and has the most perfect, innocent baby blues that beg me to protect her. There's not an ounce of good in me. I don't deserve her, but I want her. I want her sweet submission and tempting curves, at any cost. Even if I have to kill every f--ker who stands between us. This good girl belongs to me.

This is a standalone, full-length mafia romance with a filthy-mouthed, possessive bad boy. Dark mafia themes throughout. Guaranteed HEA.

This title was formerly called Good Girl.

An excellent mafia romance story

This is a gritty dark mafia romance which has a lot of raw emotions and is completely action packed. The book is about Ava, who is being exploited and is pretty fragile and broken, and Kane, an alpha-hero who is thoroughly decent, determined and a really lovely and charming person. The two characters have a lot of chemistry, and despite all the obstacles this audiobook ends on a really satisfying note. This is a full-length, complete standalone story.

Right Touch = Good Girl

I loved this book when I read it, but I think the audiobook is even better! Willow Winters is an extremely talented author. I have read lots of her books and enjoy her writing style. Lance Greenfield and Samantha Prescott did an excellent performance on this book. Rough Touch was originally titled Good Girl and is part of the Valetti Crime Family books. This is a standalone listen, yet part of a series. Dirty Dom is book one and available on Amazon and Audible. His Hostage is book two, and has same availability. This book is the third in the series and features Ava and Kane. I felt this story was very well written, even though it dealt with a dark topic. Both Ava and Kane overcame terrible things and made something beautiful. I thought that Ava was very resilient with what happened to her, and did not let it break her. Both narrators were able to deliver so much emotion that one would not get just reading the book. I really enjoyed listening to the male/female perspective that were portrayed in this book. Willow Winters does a great job at the character development and writes stories that keeps one gripped. The next book is Cuffed Kiss (previously titled Bad Girl), and is already on Audible. Bad Boy releases next. I think this book and the previous ones in this series are very much worth listening to again. (I have not yet listened to Cuffed Kiss, other than the preview that is included with this book, which sounds oh so good, or Bad Boy). I was voluntarily provided with this review copy audiobook at my request.

Great Story

I found this a dark romance but I have to say I so enjoyed the story.

I can not imagine what Ava Ivanov went through. Here was a mafia princess and now made into a sex slave. To say her life was easy before her family was killed would not be the case. Now here she is her family dead and even some killed in front of her, raped, tortured, and now a sex slave.

Kane De Rocca had no one. His family was dead and had no family backing him. Now here his boss was wanting to get in the sex slave business. His blood boiled when he laid eyes on Ava. Not only could he tell she had been beaten and broke down but watching the way her prisoners were treating her. Here he was suppose to take her and be her master.

Ava was so broken. She had chances to get away but knew she could not. The men that had her prisoner would have her captured shortly after she would escape and she could not image what they would do to her if that happen. She had given up hope to find someone with compassion on her and want to help her. She needed someone to be her saving grace. The thing I found about Ava was that she was not only a prison by this bad men but had become a prisoner within herself. She was broken beyond compare.

Kane is attracted to Ava but he refuses to prey upon her. Ava will get were she craves and needs Kane. Things will get hot and heavy between Kane and Ave. The more time they spend together the more Kane will start to have feelings for her and want her for his own. I love that he gave her choses. It will not take long before Kane would lay down his life for her and want to give her what ever she needs.

Kane’s boss will want to go against the Valetti Crime family. Kane has to decided what side he is own and hope that it will not get him and Ava killed.

This is a very touching story. It was something reading about the struggles that Ava went through and it was amazing to see the patients that Kane had with her. He went above and beyond to see that she got the help she needed. Glad I got a chance to read this book.

The only non family book!

Kane and eva's story is so very dark that it made me cry. The pain in this book is so real that it will stay with you and that makes it a Excellent story.

Just OK

This was just OK for me, I didn’t hate it nor did I overly love it. I thought the narrative was addictive but found that there were a lot of repetition in some areas. For example, the amount of times Kane’s inner monologue says he doesnt like being involved in the slave trade started to get old. I also didn’t feel the connection between Ava and Kane. And thought that it was way too easy the way Kane was excused from his obligations to the Mafia. What made this audio enjoyable was Lance Greenfield and Samantha Prescott’s narration. My only small nit pick was that I have heard and loved Ms. Prescott’s southern drawl in other audios but didn’t think this character suited her narration style.
