When going to war, there are three very simple rules one must abide by.
1. Know thy enemy
2. Be prepared to sacrifice.
3. Always wear good shoes
After all, revenge is a dish best served in stilettos.
I’ve got an eye for it, and nothing’s going to stand in my way.
Not even Rory ‘The Saint’ Brodrick.
He’s a fool if he thinks he can change me. By the time I’m through with him, I’ll make his mafia look like child’s play.
Cross me, Mr. Brodrick?
You better cross your heart and hope to die.
I’m a fighter. A hustler. A mobster.
I’ve seen a few things in my day.
But I’ve never encountered anything like her.
She’s a beauty with a beast of a heart. The poison apple I just can’t resist. And in her trail she leaves a wake of men crawling on their knees.
What she doesn’t know is that I like my women wild.
It only makes it that much more fun to tame them.
**This is a DARK mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.**
Now that’s how you make an ending. 😍👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 The final book of the Boston Underworld exceeded my expectations. I never thought I’m going to love it because the protagonists here are my least favorite in the series. Well, they rendered me speechless.
Scarlett is a devil in disguise 😈💅🏻👄. She’s a trick roller with an agenda. She plots a revenge against five men who destroyed her soul in the past. She’s no longer the weak girl they used to know and she’s back to unleash hell and put them in their graves. Nothing is going to stop her even the so called Saint of the MacKenna Syndicate.
When Rory Brodrick first saw Scarlett, he was instantly drawn with her beauty. He loves her guts and being rejected by her a lot makes him determined to pursue her more. He knows she’s attracted to him and she has business to fulfill. He wants to be a man who’ll protect her at all cost and he’s willing to help her.
From least favorite, Scarlett became my instant favorite in the series. She’s dominant, bold and fierce. She’s a tough chick who kick men’s asses! The perfect song to describe her was Look What You Made Me Do by Taylor Swift. I’m legit cheering her throughout the novel and she’s on FIRE. She’s one badass anti-heroine. I love her! 👏🏼👏🏼 Props to Rory for keeping up with her. Honestly the guy is such a man of honor and accepts her for who she is. Flaws and all. These two have an amazing chemistry and character developments. The sexy times are definitely hot and intense.
The highlight of this novel aside from the happy ever after was Chapter 39. That was spectacular all out war from Scarlett, Storm, Rory and the main MacKenna Syndicate members (Lachlan, Ronan, Dom and Conor plus Alexei — the Russian ally). This chapter was the freaking BEST. It’s action-packed and when Scarlett said “No. Fuck this. And fuck them. Fuck all these motherfuckers.” and rained them with bullets. I’m screaming internally with joy! Who says only Mafiosos can shoot guns and go to war? Not Scarlett though.
Overall, this is a great ending for the series (though I want more.. at least a novella for Nikolai and Tanaka. Haha!). If you are looking for a great mafia-themed series, Boston Underworld is a must read.
