I loved Mack, Mackenzie Wilder, and found her to be a great character. She is an Irish girl who grew up in South Boston and survived life on the streets from the age of 13. She was tough and unafraid on the outside, but inside she was still that little girl who lost her father and then had to survive foster care and finally on her own. She’s a fighter just like her father and grandfather, but she does MMA fighting where they were boxers. She isn’t afraid to fight a man either.
Lachlan Crow is Irish Mafia and he’s the real thing. He immigrated to the US from Ireland at the age of 16 with his best friend Ronan. His grandfather was already in the states when Lachlan immigrated. He was just getting to know the man when tragedy struck. Lachlan was born into the mafia where as Ronan earned his way in and is very loyal to Lachlan.
Lachlan is trying to gain a higher spot in the syndicate and knows that he has to make sacrifices to get to where he wants to go.
Mack has her own agenda and when she tries to get the eye of the Irish mob, she figures it will be a low level soldier, not a high ranking made man like Lachlan.
I started listening to this on Audio and then I found that I had the book in Kindle as well, so I was going back and forth between Audio and my iPad. This book was too good to put down and I was listening while I was commuting to and from work and when I went on my noon walks at work. I was crushed when the book ended, but then I found that I had the next three books in the series to follow up the story. I have a huge TBR list and had forgotten I had these books, what a very pleasant surprise to find them. I loved this story and these characters. I love Ronan too and look forward to reading his story. I really think that the Audiobook of this really made the book so much better for me. Just hearing the Irish brogue made it great.
I give this story a 5 star review and am looking forward to reading more of the Boston Underworld Series. I highly suggest this book to anyone who likes Mafia Romance stories. Lachlan and Mack’s story is not a typical romance story and there are some pretty intense scenes in the book.
