Summary

I was sold to my enemies.

The Butchers of the London mob, who run an empire built on sin and greed. The stories I’ve heard about the way they rule their underworld are enough to make my heart race. But those rumors have nothing on the truth.

Danny, Church, Frank. The three men who own me now. The head of this so-called kingdom and the two savages who enforce his wrath.

They made a peace deal with my family, which came at a cost—me. A mafia princess gifted to them as a bride.

So here I am in my white dress with a gun to my head and a knife in my garter.

I won’t become their plaything. I won’t become their prize.

The war between our families might have ended with this union, but I’m starting a battle of my own. And I’ll trade my body for a chance to leave this wedded bliss behind.

The only question left is whether they’ll be the ones bleeding out, or if I’ll end up with my heart torn from my chest and fed to these hungry British dogs. 

This is a dark mafia romance where the main character will end up with more than one love interest and is part of a series of stand-alone books, Mafia Wars.

So good

Not usually a fan of arranged marriage tropes but this one was everything. Characters, plot, flow. Love a strong heroine and Aria is a queen, I just loved everything about her. Loved the guys, loved the sexy times. Loved loved loved.

Perfect blend of features to make for a wild ride!

Forget Me Not Bombshell has been the Mafia Wars book I've been the most excited for and let me tell you they did not disappoint! I was hooked from the very start. I enjoyed the different approaches the sisters took which spiced up the entire series as whole. Their mafia men hid in the shadows concealing their identities whilst being linked to the flowers instead of the FMC.

Troy Duran's voice is perfect for Benny, his gruff voice easily able to portray the dark, brutal mafia man! And Laura perfectly compliments him as the FMC.

The sisters have mixed together the perfect blend of hot spice steamy scenes, action-packed thrilling suspense and angst and light-hearted emotional moments that really warm the heart into the perfect cocktail! Their characters are always extremely well written and have more layers than 10 onions in one. Anya's men perfectly compliment all aspects of her personality and lifestyle and thats why she needs more than one! And their epilogues are everything we could ever hope for and more, wrapping everything up beautifully.

Church is probably my favourite of Anya's men, so stereotypically British and yet so over the top its is so insanely hilarious and uniquely him and he loves poor Barkley so much. You'll have to read to find out what thats all about. Anya got so confused when he was talking not understanding the British slang but Frank was on hand to explain things to her.

Anya and her men get into such deliciously, turn your hair white escapades. Anya is such a strong, fierce and sassy FMC but their a beautiful vulnerability to her at times that just make you instantly want to love and protect her. My favourite part of her character was her sense of family loyalty, and love and her love of old British rock music. It was a unique and original twist to her character.

I was physically unable to stop listening to this incredible story, part of an incredible shared mafia world but thankfully you can pick up the books that interest you first without having to read the others to understand. Amazing!

Overall.

This was overall a fun listen. While I prefer male voices be done by the male performer and likewise with the female performer, I was able to get past that. Laurie was more talented with the array of accents required vs. Troy, even though her voice sounds quite young, so it all flushed out. I will say I love Troy’s gritty baritone voice. Damn sexy! The writing/story was fun and creative, as to be expected by this dream team. What I did appreciate was the length of the story vs. how writers are now only giving you 6-9 hours of storytelling so they can come out with another book. I prefer investing in a good 20+ hour listen even if there is another release in a series.

Phenomenal story and performance!

1st person/multiple pov
Spice: 4/5

My god, there was so much happening in this book - I mean she is pretty thick. I started reading this when it was released back in March and thanks to being a mood reader I got sidetracked. So when the audiobook came out I decided it was time to jump back in with it because, Troy Duran - enough said lol.
The audiobook quickly reminded me why I love the sisters and their writing. They can take a dark story and add so much humor to it that it doesn't feel like you're reading something that isn't a lighthearted fluffy romance. You get the best of both worlds, a dark romance that doesn't feel quite so heavy on your emotions and the laughter it causes makes you feel like nothing can bring down the good mood it puts you in. Then of course when you have narration from two people like this one does, the audiobook just makes it twice as good and laugh twice as hard.

I wound up reading the final book in this interconnected series before finishing this one (heads up - if you don't want spoilers just avoid that epilogue until you finish the others in the series) so I had already met Anya's brothers. The way they described their sister I knew I was going to love her character before I even started. I was not wrong. Anya is a spitfire! She has so much backbone and after the way she's treated when she first arrives in London it was obvious that she wasn't going to be walked on by anyone. But my favorite thing about her is how much music means to her and how vital it is to who she is as a person. I can relate to that in so many ways it's not even funny. It was like I could see bits of myself in her story anytime her music was brought up.
As for the guys... Danny can take a beautiful swan dive of a leap from the highest building in the UK. That's all the time I'm going to spend on him. 𝘠𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘨𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘪𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘴𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘶𝘨𝘩 𝘣𝘦𝘤𝘢𝘶𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘺 𝘴𝘶𝘳𝘦 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸 𝘩𝘰𝘸 𝘵𝘰 𝘸𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘦 𝘢 𝘷𝘪𝘭𝘭𝘢𝘪𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘸𝘦 𝘭𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘵𝘰 𝘩𝘢𝘵𝘦.

Moving on. Franky boy... whew Frank was a shock to my system as much as he was Anya's. He was so cold and anger seemed to be his only emotion when we first meet him I wasn't sure how much I would like him by the end. But once he started connecting with her through her music I knew he was going to potentially be my favorite. And if I wasn't already warming up to him before that first scene at the Duck and Dog I would have firmly been team Frank afterward! I mean sweet lord... how could you not fall for a man with that level of confidence and talent right? (𝘍𝘰𝘳 𝘵𝘩𝘰𝘴𝘦 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦'𝘵 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘥 𝘪𝘵 𝘺𝘦𝘵 𝘫𝘶𝘴𝘵 𝘸𝘢𝘪𝘵 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘴𝘦𝘦. 😉)
Then we have Church. Oh my god, he is the Leon of this story so of course, I absolutely adore him! This is where the sisters excel is with characters like him. He's confident but not annoyingly so. He's smart but also sometimes lacks common sense and it gives him this innocence that you can't help but love. And he's hysterical! So much of the humor and my side-splitting laughter came from scenes with this man. I got excited every time I saw that the next chapter was from his pov!
As for the king of London, Mr. Benny Butcher himself well, you can't help but love him too. After all, he is determined to right the wrongs of his stupid brother. Even with almost everyone around him against him in one way or another he stays firm in acting the part he's chosen to play without becoming his horrible brother in the process. He also lets Anya have quite a bit more freedom than most mafia men in his situation probably would have. For a leader of a criminal empire, he's not really that bad of a guy, to be honest. Of course, all the guys are hot as sin which makes for some very satisfying (and sometimes comical) spicy scenes. Oh, and if you like extended epilogues well they give you plenty of it with this one which was so awesome.
Don't let the size of this baby steer you away from it either. I know it's quite a large read but honestly, everything about it from start to finish is worth the time it takes to read it no matter how long that may be lol.
As always don't forget to check the TW/CW! I mean it is a mafia romance after all so even under all the humor it's still on the darker side.
If you like audiobooks or even if you don’t I highly suggest grabbing this one in audio - you will not be disappointed! The actors really captured the personalities of each character and brought them to life.

Well these two authors have done it again. Not only did they create amazing main characters, but they have side characters that just steal the show. Dylan is my favorite, I don't care that he is a side character, I love him! I want one of my own! Seriously! Who doesn’t want a man in heals who can clean up after absolutely anything 😉🩸

Anya is a very complex character who goes through so much growth throughout this book. Not to mention the changes that the men in her life go through. These characters have a very wild ride to survive (maybe) through to their ending. And there are some very hot moments along the way 🥵.

These authors might be known for their cliffies & if you are sad this is a stand-alone and no cliffy is possible, well don’t worry. Part 1 & part 2 each end on a doozy of a cliff for you to hang off of.

Bravo ladies, this is officially my favorite of the mafia wars books!

Holy shit!!! that us all....

I honestly did not know what to expect with this one. It was a recommendation from TikToc a while back and when I seen it was finally available on audible I jumped at the opportunity to get it. coming from zodiac academy its nothing like that. but also very cool in its own right. it's full of drama and twists and turns, similar to cruel boys of the zodiac but with gangsters. so much spice 😍 but super bloody 👌

I had no idea how I felt about this book until 6hrs in. but worth the build.

the end is crazy town but in a good way.

just read it, you may regret it but that's not my fault if you don't have good taste.

Captivating

The sisters did it again. this book had everything. Strong FMC who did not give in easily, and brought you into her world flawlessly. Benny Butcher is the dream husband -loving, caring, understanding, and a strong protector. Church made me fall for him first. His fun personality brought a little relief to an otherwise intense stressful book. Frank. oh Frank you intense man. He is our dark and broken one but don't worry our girl can fix him. Finally, Danny Butcher is s lunatic!! such a great read!!?

Twisted sisters never disappoint

Honestly I could listen to Troy Druan all day. His voice and narration is *chefs kiss*. Laurie’s did an amazing job bring her character to life as well!
The twisted sisters never fail to pull your emotions around so I’m thankful this is a stand-alone. I love every second of it. And the spice was again, *chefs kiss*.

Forget- Me - Not Bombshell loved it

The Narrated Laurie and Troy did such a wonderful job bringing this story to life, I absolutely loved hearing this on audiobook and they brought the characters to life in every way possible and I could not stop listening to this and you really felt like you where apart of this book and I could not stop recommending this to my friends and suggest everyone to give it a listen,

I wound up reading the final book in this interconnected series before finishing this one (heads up - if you don't want spoilers just avoid that epilogue until you finish the others in the series) so I had already met Anya's brothers. The way they described their sister I knew I was going to love her character before I even started. I was not wrong. Anya is a spitfire!

It was like I could see bits of myself in her story anytime her music was brought up.
As for the guys... Danny can take a beautiful swan dive of a leap from the highest building in the UK. That's all the time I'm going to spend on him. You have to give it to the sisters though because they sure know how to write a villain that we all love to hate.
Moving on. Franky boy... whew Frank was a shock to my system as much as he was Anya's. He was so cold and anger seemed to be his only emotion when we first meet him I wasn't sure how much I would like him by the end. But once he started connecting with her through her music I knew he was going to potentially be my favorite. And if I wasn't already warming up to him before that first scene at the Duck and Dog I would have firmly been team Frank afterward! I mean sweet lord... how could you not fall for a man with that level of confidence and talent right? (For those who haven't read it yet just wait and see.)

Use that credit

I absolutely love Church he had me cracking up. Once the spice hits it hits. I loved that the female character wasn’t a push over. It’s hard not to fall in love with all three men.
