Summary

He’s the future unchosen ruler of the O’Malleys.
Locked away for too many years.
Underestimated and pissed off.
Protective beyond all rationale.
Possessive unlike any man I’ve ever known.

I should run. Except Liam O'Malley isn't a choice. He's the air I breathe.
Still, I wonder if I can really be queen of the O’Malleys - especially when I discover the truth about who I am.

Anyone else in our shoes would make a different choice, but nothing with Liam is predictable.
In our world, anything but strength gets you killed.

It’s what makes him the perfect unchosen ruler.

Unchosen Ruler is the sixth jaw-dropping installment of the Mafia Wars series. It begins the O’Malley crime family reign and is a forbidden dark Mafia romance, interconnecting stand-alone, and guaranteed to have an HEA.

6th book in series

Great narration and continuation of the series. I'm looking forward to the next book. this series is well worth the credits you'll spend. I love the way we still get to hear from the characters/family from previous books as it adds layers and depth to the stories.

Liam O’Malley

Maggie Cole never ceases to amaze me. I loved the Ivanov series and now starting with the OMalley’s I have a whole new appreciation for these Irish men! Liam is fresh out of jail. Adjusting to civilian life is not that easy and finding out about his dad has just made it that much more difficult. When he sees Hailee, he knows he has met his soulmate. Now to convince her. Hailee has always played it safe. The quiet girl is swept off her feet by the handsome Liam, but his past scares her. Explosive chemistry keeps her with him though. And when she tells her mom, life changes. Secrets, deceptions, danger, and passion, this book is filled with it all. I love seeing Nora and some of the Ivanov family, creating that continuity I love. Cole has a winning combination in this book and I am loving Liam’s new role. The story is love, passion and family and I can’t wait to see where she goes next. The epilogue has left me curious and I can’t wait for more.

Aaron Shedlock is a favorite of mine and he is amazing as Liam. Alpha protective, charming and that hint of danger, he brings a voice to Liam that is exactly what I love. Complimented by the voice of Victoria Mei, she comes in as Hailee. She is fabulous, giving Hailee that stubborn streak with a hint of bad girl under her good girl facade. Together they make a fantastic team and it is a listen you do not want to miss.

get ready to fall in love with the O'Malley's 🍀♥️

🎙Aaron Shedlock & Victoria Mei did a FANTASTIC on their performance. This book is full steamy scenes and importantly suspense and these two performed PERFECTLY. Listening to all them tense suspense moments especially about Nora's *no spolier* family I was on the edge of my seat. I feel Nora heart breaking all over again for her sisters and trying to forgive her mam. Liam flash backs of prison and that moment with his dad when he said I can die a happy man 😪 and I knew what was going to happen next in that chapter. The Narrator Aaron did a brilliant job of making Liam strong & vulnerable in that moment. oh when the older generation talked both narrators did a great job on their Irish accent best I heard so far with my audiobook adventures 😊

I have been team Liam since Broken Fighter. When Nora was defending him to Hailee & the girls. Like she said she went "Irish girl on them" my heart broke again re-reading that scene because I know he liked her straight away

This title is true to the story. Liam was born into this world but he has to prove he is the Ruler. Yes when he 25 he was reckless and now 40 years old he is mature. We also see how he meet Finn who taught him how to read people.

Liam my heart does go to him. He learning to live again outside prison. Especially now he can't sleep because its too dark. He is use to some light in the darkness because of prison life. He learn about emojis and I think will be using this emoji alot 🖕 to his cousins & Killian🤣

Hailee is not the good girl we think she is. She a naughty girl just like her best Kora. She tells Liam about the adult fun activities...yes Liam there is alot more night play you can...We learn about Hailee's family and past. We understand why she was hesitate around Liam. Thankfully she took a chance on him🥰

Liam found his home in Hailee🥲
He calls her his little lamb and he presents that nickname to her in a beautiful way.

Nora ! made me cry soo bad when she gave him a gift from their late grandmother
😭 Liam & Nora are super close and I was so happy that we got to see a few moments of them together. Liam trust her with the big moments in his life & she will support him not matter what. I hope we got more Nora & Boris in this series. Nora is a O'Malley and this is a O'Malley series

We meet Hailee sister and my heart BREAKS for one sister that I will not spoil. She is a surpise character for me because I didn't like her at first and then I wanted to hug. She also caught the eye of a O'Malley man...that no more spoilers
What out for that sister!

NOW things are not all beds of roses. Maggie did say there a surprise that we the reader will never see coming. OH BOY she a women of a her word. I never saw this coming and she has done a fantastic job on not giving us no hints through out the whole series. No hints at all , everyone get ready....

VERY steamy moments & inspiration ideas for a treat box. Their is suspense and action in this book too. I was at the edge of my seat especially from Liam's prison experience & that GIANT surpise that I did not see coming !!

☆MUST READ & FAV☆

Finally

I've been desperate for Hailee and Liam's story since I first met them! This was incredibly fast paced, I couldn't read the words fast enough and yet I was desperate to savor every single one. The action was 10/10 as was the spice, the connection all of it. And now we see more of the Irish side of the world that Ms. Cole has created I cannot think of how much this series just levelled up. I volunteered to read and review an early copy of this. All opinions are my own.

Absolutely fantastic

Oh where to start with this book. With so much action adventure and continuous family feuds there’s not a dull moment. There’s lots of fascinating strong characters in this book that have been written so very well. An amazing performance from both Victoria and Aaron.

Another Great Addition to the Series!

This is the sixth book in the Mafia Wars Series, a forbidden Dark Mafia Romance. I love this series of interconnected standalone stories. Liam and Hailee's story is captivating! Hailee is lovely, strong, and smart. Liam is ruthless, enigmatic, and protective. There is a lot going on in this story. I liked the action, and the twists and turns. Aaron Shedlock and Victoria Mei did a fantastic job with the narration. They are perfect as Liam and Hailee. They both have a beautiful voice, very pleasant to listen to. I HIGHLY recommend it! Looking forward to listening to Perfect Sinner, the next book in the Series!

Forbidden Dark Mafia Romance

Unchosen Ruler by Maggie Cole is a forbidden dark mafia romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Aaron Shedlock and Victoria Mei. This is the sixth book in the Mafia Wars series. The book can be read as a standalone but the stories are interconnected.

I absolutely love Maggie's books! She does an amazing job pulling me into the story. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Liam and Hailee. The chemistry between them was off the charts. I really enjoyed getting both of their points of views throughout the book. It really brought the story to life.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Perfect Sinner to be released on October 1, 2021 so I can get Nolan and Gemma's story.

Aaron and Victoria 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 recommend this book if you like forbidden romances, dark romances, mafia romances, or romantic suspense.
