Ruthless People by J.J. McAvoy Audiobook Review


To the outside world, they look like American royalty, giving to charities, feeding the homeless, and rebuilding the city. But behind closed doors is a constant battle for dominance between two bosses, cultures, and hearts.

Ruthless People is a romantic crime fiction set in modern day Chicago and follows the life and marriage of Melody Giovanni and Liam Callahan - rivals by blood and leaders through fear. Theirs is an arranged marriage with the goal of ending years of bloodshed between the Irish and the Italians. Liam assumes he's getting a simple-minded wife, one he can control, one who bends to his every need...he’ll soon find out that his wife to be does not fit that mold.

Melody knows exactly what type of man Liam is and would rather die than give up the power she has spent her life earning.

The mafia of the past has evolved, and with rival bosses gunning for their family, Melody and Liam will have to learn to work as one to take down those who stand in their way.

Length: 10 hrs, 15 mins

I absolutely LOVED this book. It is dark, it is twisted, and it is absolutely AWESOME... This is a book that PERFECTLY fits into Dark Erotica without there really being any abuse or torture to go with it... although there are other dark events that occur, it's not a slave relationship (that is usually what comes with dark erotica), so this was a really refreshing story.

This book kept me guessing at what was going to happen, while silently cheering on both Melody and Liam in all their twistedness and sexiness. I could not get enough when it came to these two.

The narrator did a fantastic job, as did the author. It was a great pairing that I can't wait to get the rest of the story from!



J. J. McAvoy first started working on Ruthless People during a Morality and Ethics lecture her freshman year of college. X number of years later, she is an insomniac who has changed her major three times, and is a master in the art of procrastination. If you ask her why she began writing, she will simply tell you “They wanted to get their story out.”

She is currently working on her next novel... so please bug her on Twitter.
