Summary

Carnal (adjective):

  1. Relating to the pleasures of the body
  2. Given to sensual indulgence
  3. The man who kidnapped me

The devil has blue eyes, an Irish accent, and a hatred for me that runs deep.

He blames me for starting a war. Consorting with his enemies. Getting his men killed. Though I’m innocent on all charges, he wants his pound of flesh. With an eye on revenge, he makes me his captive.

But as we’ll both soon discover, there are more powerful urges than that for revenge.

When the devil meets his match but she’s his sworn enemy, that’s when the real war begins.

Author's note: Listeners requiring trigger warnings about any kind of naughty things two consenting adults might do to each other in bed (and out of it) should not listen to this book.

Holy Mary Mother of Irish mob hotness!

Carnal Urges brings us the story of Irish mob boss Declan O’Donnell and free spirit Sloane Keller who we met in Ruthless Creatures.
Sloane was the perfect character; she is super hilarious and is so annoying that her kidnappers consider sending her back to her parents with an apology note. You never knew what was going to come out of Sloane’s mouth, but she takes this book from being great to freaking amazing.
I fell in love with Sloane Keller and her strong, smart, sassy, personality in Ruthless Creatures. She is a woman who owns her sexuality and doesn’t feel bad about using men for her pleasure and always leaves them wanting more.
Declan O’Donnell is the grumpy, overprotective, alpha-hole Irish mob boss who initially wasn’t charmed by Sloane like all the other men, however, he soon becomes obsessed with her and the witty banter and dry humour that ensues between the two is simply magnificent. Declan is a loveable rogue who is a god in bed and knows how to please a woman, worship her body and drag every ounce of pleasure from her. I loved all things Declan O’Donnell, but his insatiable carnal sexual prowess had me swooning.
The narration dream team trio are back for book two and honestly, I just love these three together. Troy’s performance as Declan was fabulous, his Iris accent was dreamy and his trademark deep, gravelly tone was perfect to portray the Irish mob boss. Michelle’s performance as Sloane was perfect, she was able to convey the funny, witty, sexual, sensual and sometimes vulnerable sides of Sloane. Brooke reprised her role as Natalie and didn’t disappoint.
Carnal Urges was action packed, fast paced, filled with banter and humour, an uber dominant alpha with a penchant for kink and all the steamy spice that’ll set you on fire!
This book was everything! I cannot recommend it highly enough.

My favourite quotes of the book

“Hey gangster.” He closes his eyes, makes a growling noise, and tightens his hand on my neck. “Oh relax. I just wanted to ask if you think Reverse Stockholm Syndrome is already a thing, or if you’re about to invent it?”
“How many times did you parents beg you to run away from home?”

“I know it’s a bad idea, but the woman has an uncanny knack for knowing exactly what to say to push my buttons. The FBI shout hire her for there terrorist interrogation team. There’s not a man on earth who’s will to live she couldn’t break.”

If you love a sizzling hot mob romance with a panty melting alpha who is to die for and a sassy, strong willed heroine who is batshit crazy then look no further as this is the book for you.

BRILLIANT ANGSY MAFIA LISTEN

Carnal (adjective): So addictive.

I listened to this book in audio and let me tell you, if I was reading this on my kindle I would have devoured it in one sitting, it was that good, intense, and addictive.

When I first read about Sloane in the previous book Ruthless Creatures, I loved her strength, her sass, and her overall character and couldn't wait to find out more.
Her strength, her charisma, her outlook on life, and not forgetting her inner goddess are solidified in this book, if I could have a woman crush it would be for Sloane.

I never thought I would say this about an intense mafia romance especially when the woman begins her journey with the hero as his captive but it was funny. Sloan is so quick-witted and funny that I laughed out loud more than once and what a brilliant balance it was.

There was nothing I didn't like about this book.
The previous book Ruthless Creatures had a lot of kink in the sex scenes and I didn't think it suited the heroine, she was meek, more gentle in character and I did mention in my review for that book that hot quick intense sex scenes rather than long drawn out kink in the scenes would have fit much better, rather than the long drawn out Dom and submissive thing going on. That story was good enough on its own and I couldn't wait to get to the other action.
It isn't always necessary to have the dom and sub thing to show they have a sizzling hot sex life, that was just my view and perspective of Nat's character, but with Sloane and Declan, it fit. The sex scenes made sense.
Declan and Sloane were so similar in character, they were fire creating more fire and their sex life was scorching.

I cannot wait to read the next book, in the meantime I intend on reading something else by this author until it releases.

If you love the whole Mafia madness vibe, a heroine who falls for her captor, hot sex scenes, and a good plot in the mix of all that then this is definitely a read or listen for you.

The narrator *swoon. I loved his voice, it really fit how I would have imagined Declan to sound, he made him come to life. Fab job to both narrators.

Told in first person dual pov and leads to a somewhat happy ending, as happy as one can get in the mafia world

Outstanding!

Jt geissinger never fails to hit the mark! It's funny, it's sexy, it's exciting... I loved every minute of this book. And the narration was absolutely second to none. The growly voice of troy duran just does it for me every time 🔥🔥🔥

The banter between Sloan and everyone she come into contact with was just hilarious, especially the text messages! She's just a strong, amazing character who seems like she can take on the world, but shows her vulnerable side when with declan.

Declan is intense and territorial and possessive and I absolutely love him - he's tied now with the main character in Priest by sierra simone as my favourite book boyfriend I think now!

The side characters are also really good and well developed and it would be nice to see more from them in the future maybe.

The book is so well written, it grips you from the very start, and I has everything I need from a book, good characters, fast paced storyline and hot sex scenes.

I would definitely recommend this book without hesitation, it's just absolutely fantastic.

Brilliant 🌶🌶🌶

One of the best books I’ve listened to. I LOVED The witty repartee between the two main characters. I will definitely try to remember some of the one-liners in the story. The quick, dry wit had me in fits of laughter. The narrators are absolutely brilliant and brought the story to life. I’m definitely going onto the next book in the series straight away.

Good story!

I really liked this book. The banter between Declan and Sloane was great.  Sloane was such a sassy heroine and it was refreshing that there wasn't instalove.

I'm not sure I was completely convinced by the ending though and look forward to reading #3 to see what happens.

Just as brilliant as the first

Same narrators as the first book, same brilliance. The story of Sloane is everything I thought it would be. She's fearless, fiery, witty and powerful which is refreshing to see in these kind of books. Declan is your usual dominant alpha male, but the connection and engagement between the two is different. We see a vulnerable side of Sloane when her back story is revealed. But it doesn't take away from the strength this female character exhumed. Loving this series.

Best book series EVER

This book series has been amazing .
The narration is the best I’ve ever experienced, both male and female narrators!
The storyline is smart and witty. I actually found myself giggling throughout. The women are just the perfect measure of snarky, funny and sexy!
The men, gah!

Amazing

Where do I even start with this review?!

I listened on audio and it’s probably 1 of the best audios I’ve ever listened too 🖤 the chemistry the narrators have throughout is incredible. They make the whole story come alive and it’s extremely engaging. I loved every minute of it!

The story was fabulous. I knew I loved Sloan in the previous book but wow does she come knocking in this book. Her charm, sass and personality just make her such an incredible character you can’t help but love.

Declan is a serious alpha-hole but OMG did I want to jump his bones 😂 his dirty talk and his persona is so frigging amazing.

This story had everything you want in a dark mafia plot, after being kidnapped Sloan has to come to terms with the change of events. She’s is such a strong MFC and the way she winds Declan up had me laughing out loud.

The spice was seriously hot 🥵🥵 be warned you need several pairs of knickers at the ready 🔥 and listening to it aswell, bloody nora you get a little warm 😂

I just loved it from start to finish and I can’t wait to listen to the next book 🖤

This is a Dark MF Mafia book with duel POV. The audio is duel Narration throughout which made it more enjoyable for me 🖤

THIS BOOK.. WOW, THIS BOOK IS SERIOUSLY A 10 ⭐️

Oh I’m so jealous of you right now.. why?.. well it’s because, if you’re sensible and get this book, you’re in for such a fresh, mind blowing, ten star treat that I’d like to experience all over again. It’s smooth and fun with it’s light quick-witted polished banter between an intimidating dark hero and his light fearless captive. It’s instantly addictive as the sexy Irish Mob boss (and his men) slowly fall under the enchanting spell of his quirky, spirited, loveable pixie prisoner. It’s a delicious romance between a broody alpha kidnapper and his unimpressed blasé bored captive who upends his life into frustrated unwanted emotions.. into high octane push ‘n pulls.. into light sub dom surrenders.. into fierce passion-filled claimings and sexy times.. and into rubble-filled pillow talk when walls are finally surrendered. Then it’s so, so.. SO much more when this very talented author rips the rug from beneath your feet.. (.. sorry my lips are 🤐). And the whole wonderfully wicked dual POV wild ride is brought to life in duet-style dualistic narration by five star skilled narrators who brought their A game and delivered perfection.

Worth a credit? Yes.. even if you have to beg, borrow or steal one 🤭🤫😉😉.

Excellent book - so good!

I could not wait for this book and was not disappointed. OMG, it was so good I didn't want it to end. I did not think it would be as good as Ruthless Creatures, but it was. Declan was really funny. When he first kidnapped Sloan he said in response to her question of why she was drugged is because she is surprisingly strong for someone who dresses like the tooth fairy. Sloan was a hoot. She was so funny and she got on Declan's last nerve. She really gave him a run for his money. There were many laugh-out-loud moments. After kidnapping Sloan, he gets the call that he is now the head of the mafia and there may be a war that he says Sloan started. I hope Savage Hearts comes to Audible soon, especially the way the book ended. Troy Duran, Michelle Sparks and Brooke Daniels were awesome. I especially loved Troy's narration. He does a great job with the Irish accent and his comedic timing was excellent! For a killer, he was so funny, especially when he said one of his men had a sweet tooth, a salty tooth, and a fried tooth.

so much better then the 1st book in the trilogy

wow, this is so much better then the first book in the trilogy, it makes me wonder what the author was doing before. again, this is 5 stars for a very hot romance novel that will make you blush. unlike the first book in the series, this book actual had a story, a very engaging one. the characters are much more developed and likeable. I think I'm going to listen to it again right now.
