Title: Boston Underworld: The Collection

Author: A. Zavarelli

Genre: Contemporary Dark Romance

Release Date: February 28, 2019

Model: Jonny James

Cover Designer: Coverluv Designs

The complete Boston Underworld series box set includes six full-length novels- CROW, REAPER, GHOST, SAINT, THIEF, CONOR.

CROW:

He’s a killer. A mobster.

The last man on earth I’d ever want to be with. He’s one of the only leads in my best friend’s disappearance, and I don’t trust him.

So I’ve got a few rules in mind when it comes to dealing with Lachlan Crow.

1.Keep a clear head and don’t get distracted. 

2.Do what’s necessary and never forget why you’re there. 

3.Never, and I mean never, fall for him. 

REAPER:

He’s dark and mysterious. Quiet and lethal. 

An Irish mobster. 

Pure sin wrapped up in a beautiful package. 

But there’s also something off about him. 

He hasn’t spoken to me in two years. Not a single word. 

But we share a secret, he and I. 

And if it ever comes out, I have no doubt in my mind…

He won’t have a problem killing me too. 

GHOST:

I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.

Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. 

Nothing scares me anymore. 

Until him.

SAINT:

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. 

THIEF:

He’s Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.

And what he wanted was me. 

CONOR:

Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended. He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.

So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.

A. Zavarelli is a book junkie, cat lover, and traveler when plagued by intense cases of wanderlust. She likes all things chocolate, books that come with warnings, and putting her characters through hell. 

Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.

She is slightly obsessed with Theo James and funny animal memes. If you don’t mind these things, you should add her on facebook.

This is a wonderful look into the Irish Underworld. A. Zavarelli has done a fantastic job bringing us the stories behind all the men in this mafia series.

Crow
This is my first book by A. Zavarelli and it wont be the last!!! Holy Hotness, someone please spray me with some Irish cool me down!!! 
Lachlan, the uber bad ass mafia man…
Mack, the awesome friend, bad ass, take no crap from anyone…

Mack’s best friend Talia has gone missing… What’s a best friend to do? Go undercover as an individual at the bar she last worked at…hoping to talk to some of the other dancers to get the inside scoop. What happens though, after a super HOT audition, she starts to feel, she has desires, she realizes what it is that is missing in her life….

Can these 2 survive when everything seems to be going against them? 

Absolutely a PAGE Turner!!!! Cant wait to dive into book 2. Although this book can be read as a standalone, why would you want to stop.

Reaper
Ronan aka Reaper is one tough mafia man. This book told us how a killer is created and what a story it is. At just 8 years old, Ronan was being trained to become a killer in a man’s body. This man who now is grown up and trying to survive in the only world he knows…the mafia family that is his only true family. 
This story is one full of angst, dark elements, torture, family, love and last but not least…a freaking CORGI!!! 

Loved this book and definitely look forward to reading more!!!

Ghost
I remember picking up Crow by a new to me author and saying gosh that was good, then I read Reaper and said this was really good…Now I’ve read Ghost and OMG, it was Outstanding!!! Flowed Perfectly, twist and turns, revenge, raw, gritty and exceptionally written. A. Zavarelli is a author who has made it to my no questions asked, one click her book. 

This is a page turning book about Talia and Alexei. Both with extremely bad childhood stories and both who are still suffering after all these years. Talia from her being trained, sold and treated like a animal. Alexi, hiding behind his secret and a father who never has wanted him as a son… 

This book will have you hooked from the beginning to the end!

Saint
The bigger the man, the bigger the ego. Or is it the bigger the bank account, the bigger the ego? 

Scarlett is seeking revenge and will stop at nothing till it is found. She has built a wall around her heart and has no feelings towards anyone. No friend, no boyfriend, nobody…. Why is it then that The Saint, keeps messing up her plans?

Rory he just can’t get her out of his head…Satan herself has gone and left an impression with him that he can’t let go… He will stop at nothing to help this messed up girl. His ‘family’ has warned him but there is no stopping the way he feels for Satan. 

Absolutely love the way that Ashleigh Zavarelli has brought this family to us in The Boston Underworld Series. Each book is about the same ‘family’ but totally different. Showing us that each member deserves to have his story told! This one is no different, page turner from the get go. 
Thief
The finale of the Boston Underworld Series, a series that A. Zavarelli nailed! This is the story of Nikolai and Tanaka, the Russian Mafia man and the Ballerina. 

Once the Ballerina is in his possession, the tables turn. 

While Nikolai a Russian, it’s in the Vory beliefs he must marry a Russian. But this Italian Mafia princess is making Nikolai question his beliefs.

There are reasons behind Nikolai obtaining Tanaka and building a relationship with her is not in the books. This is not a typical romance story. 

As the story unfolds and we find out who is behind the ballerina’s fall, we see that those who supposedly love us the most, are the ones creating the most damage. The ones who make mothers disappear from their young children are the ones who we’ve trusted our entire life. 

Full of twists and turns, this story was a good ending to a great series!

Conor
The Boston Underworld series by A. Zavarelli is my favorite by this author. When I saw that Conor was getting his own book, I was super stoked!!! 

Conor has proven himself time and time again within the family. But when he finally gets asked to do a job by himself…he couldn’t believe it! Finally a chance to really prove my loyalty to the family that took me in.

Ivy is hoping this last chance job at the strip club will allow herself to start making money and finally get out of Boston. For her, the time she has been there have been anything but happy. One good thing has come out of the bad. But will she be able to make enough to save the one good thing in time?

It was great reading about the men in the previous books! I really enjoyed this story. The perfect ending to a great series.

Zavarelli spins the tale like an old folklore , who started what gang, who begets who and I’m just standing and staring wide eyed as the events unfold right in front of me. Brutally Raw story of Underground world where Italians , Russia and the Irish divide Boston like a pie , dividing territories, trading traitors, inter marrying for alliances and planting Trolls.
The book gripped me from the word go and it’s kept me engrossed throughout . I couldn’t look away , even for a second. after a long time , a true Gritty , Bloody , action packed Mafia story to sink my teeth in has come in my hands.
It’s a perfectly written story from start to end, with just the right dosage of drama, angst, steam and danger to make it a churning pot-boiler. Ash has perfected the Irish Crew with one damaged character after another who are sadistic and ruthless when punishing and tender and protective when loving.
These men know how to belong and own with the same ferocity and loyalty

Elle Fierro

All I have to do is appear as a judge on this cooking show in Hollywood and my restaurant will open to rave reviews. Pretty much my lifelong dream. What I absolutely shouldn’t do is sleep with one of the contestants and ruin everything I’ve worked so hard for. But he gives good hugs, makes me laugh, fills out a simple T-shirt like nobody’s business, and is sweeter than the maple syrup he dripped all over my naked body last night…

 

 

Austin Cox

I may have been drunk when I applied to be on that reality cooking show, which is why it’s hard to believe I’m here. What’s even harder to believe is that Elle, with her painted red lips and fiery disposition, is in my bed and making me forget I need to win this damn show to get my little sister out of the foster care system.

[Release Blitz & Giveaway]: Miss Not Together by Belle Brooks

Title: Miss Not Together

Author: Belle Brooks

Genre: YA/Romance/Humor

Release Date: February 10, 2019

 

 

 

Meet Hilary Watts: pretty, straight A-student, teachers’ pet, goody two-shoes, totally has it all together—and has never been kissed, or even had a boyfriend for that matter.

 

 

Meet Grayson Dymicks: badarse persona, new guy in school, just moved in next door, volatile—and a total jerk.

 

 

When Hilary finds herself attracted to the very person she shouldn’t be, she never imagines all her well-placed Jenga blocks will come crashing down—or that her first ever kiss will be with a boy every girl in school wants for themselves.

 

 

Hilary’s life is turned upside down and she realises she’s not as put together as she thought. Instead, she’s as totally messed up as all the other teenage girls her age—but is this a romance destined for a happily ever after or a broken heart?

 

 

If you love Beth Reekles and John Green, then you will adore Miss Not Together!

Hooked by Jennifer Bene
Humor flashed in his eyes, a slight crinkling at the corners
before he nodded. “I think I understand.” His thumb stroked up and down the
column of her throat, but his grip never tightened, there was just a little
more… pressure. “You think because you’re in the ballet that you’re somehow
less than the other celebrities involved in the auction?”
“Well, they’re actual celebrities, so… there’s that.” A
quiet laugh almost escaped her lips, but then his grip really did tighten.
Higher on her throat now, just under her jaw, and he used the hold to tilt her
head back again until his face filled her view.
“Let me add on to your friend’s requirements. While we’re
playing tonight, you won’t refer to ballet, or yourself, in a negative way or
you’ll earn a punishment, and it will be one you don’t enjoy. Understood?”
“Yes, sir,” she whispered, practically breathless, but that
had a lot less to do with his relatively gentle hold on her throat and a lot
more to do with the arousal currently buzzing through her bloodstream and
concentrating the pulse between her thighs.
“Wonderful.” He removed his hand and smiled again. “Thank
you for your trust.”
“Trust?” she echoed.
“Yes. Not every sub will let you touch their throat like
that without proving yourself first, establishing the trust. I appreciate that
you gave me that on faith alone. You trusted that I would keep you safe, and I
swear that I will.” Wyatt’s smile changed a bit, widening into a grin that made
him seem a lot less serious, more… playful. “That doesn’t mean I won’t hurt
you, though. I admit that I’m looking forward to pulling some of those sweet
cries from your lips myself.”
And, boom.
The pulse between her thighs turned into an all-out fire,
which didn’t help the fact that she already felt too hot in the stifling room.

True love can kiss Wyatt Monroe’s ass.
Life turned her into a realist years ago when she lost
everything she truly loved.
Wyatt knows there is no happily ever after for her. No white
knight coming to her rescue and that’s perfectly fine. She is more than capable
of saving herself.
Enter Flynn Maguire. He’s been running from his demons for a
decade, hiding in plain sight and determined to forget. No longer able to live
the lie, he hunts down the woman he destroyed in a misguided effort to save
her.
Wyatt is determined never to repeat the past. Flynn is
determined to reclaim the life that should have been his. But determination
will only get you so far, and when the glare of public opinion viciously shines
on their past, they can either stand united or fall divided.

PROLOGUE
Wyatt
Ten Years Earlier
Smoke.
My nostrils twitch as the subtle acrid smell hits them and a
sliver of unease curls itself around my consciousness.
The club is crowded, and I’m jostled carelessly between a
sea of sweaty bodies. My hand instinctively finds my belly and I internally
curse Flynn for convincing me to come tonight.
I crane my neck, searching for the source of the putrid
smell, but I can barely see past the people surrounding me. Their clammy skin
pressing against my own combined with their loud voices ringing in my ear, the
atmosphere practically suffocates me.
My breathing begins to quicken. Short, shallow breaths that
I have to fight to get into my lungs, heighten my anxiety and the mild
apprehension I was feeling morphs quickly into full-blown dread that thrashes
violently through my veins.
Closing my eyes, I try to block out the crowd around me and
concentrate on Flynn’s voice, which floats above the cheers and catcalls. My
vision is blocked from my position over here, along the side of the room where
I, wrongly, assumed I could avoid the crush of the congested dance floor.
That’s when it happens.
With my eyes squeezed shut, one hand pressed against my
hammering chest and the other curled protectively over my stomach. My brain
shuts down, focusing only on the voice of the man I love, singing the song he
wrote about us. About cherry Chapstick and cheap beer.
The moment my life was forever changed.
One word screamed.
Hundreds of bodies pushing, fighting each other, chased by
the cruel heat and wicked burn.
I’m shoved forcefully up against the wall as people lose all
sense of decency in their own fight for safety. My eyes flicker to my left and
I see the orange flames dancing with the plumes of black smoke above the stage.
My heart sinks and I unconsciously begin fighting against the crowd. Sweat
prickles along every inch of my skin and I fight every instinct in me as I try
to make my way toward Flynn.
A tall guy stops right in front of me, his face is panicked,
and I can see a fear in his eyes that I know is echoed in my own. He bends down
and grabs my shoulders, his fingertips digging in painfully. “Go the other
way!” he screams in my face, his spit coating me. Shaking my head, I push past
him and hear him mutter, “Stupid bitch.”
The pungent smoke has filled the room and as my lungs
struggle to cope, screaming for fresh air, I become disoriented. I spin around,
my eyes burning while I attempt to gather my wits. But when a stray elbow
connects with my already aching temple, I lose my balance, falling to the
ground. And in a moment that I know will forever be imprinted on me, amidst the
cacophony of terrified screams, flailing bodies, and heart-wrenching terror, I
lose everything that I love.
