My father is dying, and I’ve been called back to Brooklyn to take my place as the head of the Italian syndicate. After a seven-year absence, my first test of loyalty is to marry the granddaughter of the Irish mob’s leader. I may not want a wife, but I’ll kill anyone who tries to harm her.
I only hope she doesn’t expect love in our marriage. I can’t—won’t—love her. Not ever. I don’t have it in me.
My life has always been about duty. When my grandfather signs a marriage contract, I become a pawn in an alliance between the Irish and the Italians. Once again, I’m bound by duty.
I’ve always been invisible—the person who fades into the background—except soon my new husband begins to see me.
He’s a Brooklyn king, but will our enemies destroy my chance to become his queen?
The Devil I Don’t Know, book 1 in The Brooklyn Kings Series
This was my first book by this author and I really enjoyed her storytelling. I will definitely be looking for more audios from this series.
Jacob and Brenna are forced into an arranged marriage to help their families come together as a stronger front. From strangers to lovers, I loved how their relationship flourished. Jacob was patient, kind, and protective from day one. This is a mild mafia romance but still had its moments and talks of past events. Side characters were very intriguing and I’m looking forward to their stories!
Eve Caine and Walker Williams were enjoyable narrators who did really well pulling me into the characters and story.
