Summary

An Irish mobster with a brutal grudge.

An Italian Mafia princess with a dark secret.

Two enemy empires joined in sacred marriage vows.

Let the hating games begin.

Reyna

If this arrogant Irish mobster my brother sold my niece to thinks I’m going to play nice over this arranged-marriage BS, he should think again.

I don’t care if this match with the Mob will make my brother capo of the Five Families. I don’t care how much money, territory, or power it will gain us. I especially don’t care that the Irishman is the sexiest man I’ve ever seen. I won’t allow my innocent niece to suffer the same way I did. Even if I have to kill him.

Spider

I’m supposed to marry sweet, beautiful Lili. So why can’t I stop thinking about her swamp witch of an aunt?

Reyna who hates me. Reyna who challenges me. Reyna with the guts of a Viking, the body of a fertility goddess, and the attitude of a feral cat.

Nothing good can come of what I’m feeling for a woman who’s not the one in the wedding contract I signed. A woman I want so much, I’ll have to burn the whole world down to get. If she doesn’t kill me first.

Amazing chemistry

Loved the narrator for Reyna, I really felt all the chemistry between her and Spider. I loved how sassy and confident she was which was beautifully portrayed in the narration. Another amazing book by JT Geissinger.

Witty steamy violent and effortlessly flowed..

It's everything you need from a mafia romance. The banter and chemistry between the H and h is off the charts. This author does it so well throughout the series and the narrators on the audio were fantastic.

Starts off so well

Such a good premise, but gave up with 5 hrs to go. The narrator for Reina was very good, and Troy Duran usually amazing, but why oh why the horrible grating Irish accent??? OK, I know the character is Irish, but Wen Ross or Gary Furlong do accents so well, why blemish the wonderful tones of Mr Duran with this nonsense? It's one of the reasons I can't get to the end.

The second reason is the illogicality of the after the wedding stuff. Smart Reina would have the brains to stop the continual angst, fight and wasted energy until she had evidence that Spider had bad intentions. It's just ridiculous, overdone and tedious.

I have had so many amazing audiobooks by JT Geissinger, usually quirky, smart and inventive (Midnight Valentine is just awesome and haunting, the Burn for You and Dangerous series are amazing), but this after a promising start resorted to formulaic nonsense, losing my interest and my will to continue. Probably better read on Kindle.

FIRST HALF GOOD SECOND HALF NONSENSE

the best out of the 4 books

I've read all the four books out of this series and this is by far the funniest, the most nail biting and the best in terms of storyline. Spider is a bit erratic but such a loveable character and Raina, is a no nonsense, take no prisoners Queen with a good heart. The narration was brilliant until the dialogue between the women in Paris where the voice narrator for Nat was grating and very annoying. other than that, this is a good book

Amazing

I’ve been sooooo excited to read Spiders book and OMG it did not disappoint. I listened on audio and honestly it makes this series so much better as the voice actors are incredible!

I’ve been a massive fan of spiders after first meeting him in Sloane and Declan’s book and he is even better than I thought 🖤 Well Reyna is his match is every way possible. She was fantastic, just everything about her made me love her from the start especially after finding out her back story.

This book had everything you needed when in the Mafia world, the spice was seriously hot and the tension before hand well 🥵🥵🥵🥵 panty changing heat. There is obviously a whole lot of violence too.

The story flowed so good I was addicted to what was happening and needing more constantly. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much when reading books as I have with these, and listening to it made it made it so much more enjoyable.

I’m gutted it’s ended but what a way to end it 🖤 just amazing from start to finish!

This is a dark MF mafia romance so check triggers before reading. I think this is my fave book from the 4 of them.

COMPLETE PERFECTION! not to be missed

I've listened to well over 200 books this year so far and without a shadow of a doubt, this book has been my highlight. its by far the best book I've listened too in a long time. the whole series has been absolutely fantastic but this book was pure perfection, from the writing to the performance of the narrations. J T Geissinger is leading the pack when it comes to the way her books are narrated with its talented cast, its a listening experience not to be missed, this book was outstanding.
I loved the snark and banter between these two, I can honestly say that this book had me laughing out loud or smiling, some of the come backs they give each other are just brilliant, but the mama, shes just a hoot and so well played.
if I could give this book an Oscar I would. make sure you listen to the other books in the series from the start first, as it's great hearing from other characters from the series and a couple of her other books she's wrote. I have my fingers crossed we're going to get more in this series.

Fantastic

If you love J.T Geissinger novels, and why the heck wouldn’t you, prepare to be bowled over. I always read the books then listen to the audio when it comes out. The narrators are outstanding and bring it to life.
I laughed so much in places with the banter. Troy and Tara’s MC narrations were just fabulous

Great end to an amazing series

This book was amazing. I read it first, I just couldn’t wait. But goodness the Audio is just everything you could imagine and more. This is probably my favorite book in the series. Mrs Caruso is my spirit animal 🥰
I could not possibly rate this book and Or series any higher! Worth every single credit!

WHO NEEDS SLEEP WHEN QUEENS & MONSTERS CLASH

Perfection, the whole pushy punchy storyline, bruised characters, duet-style narration and wealth of feels it brings you is purrrrfect. And this end has me wanting to go back and listen to each fantastic book in this brilliant series again because of the warmth they bring. The outstanding snappy, feisty comebacks, combustible chemistry, clever banter, lethal insults and carnal attraction between Quinn and the woman who’d turn Father Christmas into the Grinch (Quinn’s words 😂) was so damn entertaining and humorous. And the joining of the Mafia and the Irish Mob may not run smoothly.. but it does run hot, sexily and full of delicious charm.

Worth a credit? Yes, I’d gladly hand over two for this.. but 🤫 keep it between us. Still, there’s NEVER any doubt with this gifted author’s books and her well-written words, interesting layered characters and epic world-building that draws you into a world you want more of. And they’re always brought to life by the vocal talents of awesome A list narrators who definitely don’t disappoint.

Reyna and Spider - Ten Stars!

This book and series deserves far greater than five stars - it deserves at least ten stars for Overall, Performance and Story. Reyna is a real bad@ss, especially after the life she had with her now-deceased husband and Spider is awesome! There are some really funny parts of this book like when Reyna said Spider's feet were so large, they looked like skis. The performance was excellent. Troy Duran was outstanding! As with Carnal Urges, his comedic timing was great. I hope Ms. Geissinger writes another great mafia romance series.

Fantastic end to a fantastic series

The end to an incredible series. I am heartbroken it's over, but what a way to end the series. Absolutely amazing. This is my favorite book in the series. Spider is so swoon worthy. Reyna puts up with no BS and I love her for it.
As always, JT Geissinger knocked it out of the park with this one. The narrators are absolutely incredible and you can never go wrong with Troy Duran.
