Summary

This ruthless crime lord's kindness comes with a price. Possession. Complete and utter.

Jazz: I'm a determined dreamer - at least I used to be. I put all my dreams on hold and withdrew every penny from my savings account to pay the debt my ailing father owes to a local gang.

Except, according to the gang's slimy leader, even my life savings won't be enough to pay the enormous debt my dad's accrued. And his leering gaze lets me know exactly how he wants me to pay the balance.

A ruthless stranger offers to pay my remaining debt. He's a tattooed crime lord, a cold, beautiful animal who regards me with dead eyes. The price for this kindness? Possession. The complete and utter kind.

You're mine, he informs me when I ask him why he did it, leaving me to figure out....

Is he my unexpected savior or my ruthless mistake?

Han: I learned from a young age that women aren't worth much. They don't stay. They're not loyal. They weaken you, then disappear at the first sign of trouble.

That's why I don't do relationships - especially with good girls who have no place in my criminal underworld.

I should stay away from her. Let her pay me back some other way.

But I can't. She's golden sunshine wrapped in a sexy little package, lighting up all the dark parts of my heart. And when she asks me why I did it, two words rise without thought or reason.

You're mine.

She thinks I'm the mistake, but it's the other way around. I don't do relationships. I don't even let women spend the night. But this one...

She has me breaking all of my rules.

Han and Jazz!

Jazz has been saving everything she has earned so that she can buy a surfing school and her dream is almost within her reach when she needs to use that money to save her father. The only problem is that the man her father is in debt to is a dangerous man who is now demanding interest in a way she doesn’t want to pay. When Han purchases her and her debt she isn’t certain which fate was worse.

Han has been betrayed in the past and doesn’t trust many people especially women. He is drawn to Jazz’s sassy personality in a way he never expected, and she proves to be his equal in every way but will he be able to convince her that she can trust him with her heart and her life?

Although they may appear to be an unlikely match Jazz has a way of challenging him at every turn which is exactly what he needs in his life. Hot chemistry, suspense and surprises you don’t see coming. I thought that the narrators brought out both the protector in Han and the feisty personality of Jazz which had you invested in the characters and their story.

Captivating and Suspenseful

This was my first book by Theodora Taylor - I went in blindly not really knowing what to expect. This story was a rollercoaster of events and emotions. Although I wasn't completely lost in the world of the Ruthless Triad - I feel I didn't connect characters as quickly if I had been familiar with them.

Jazz (Jasmine) and Han come together in a very unexpected way - Jazz is low-key - teaches surf lessons and always wears a bikini where she lives in Hawaii. Trying to help her Dad, gets her in a bit of a predicament and Han is her "savior". I found the story to be captivating and unpredictable with a good level of suspense. Some elements of kidnapping/captive as she is not going willingly to stay with Han.

Overall - I really enjoy this book and the narrators did a fantastic job with the characters.

Well Worth a Listen

I loved this fast paced, triad romance with a dark, brooding anti-hero in Han and his complete opposite when it came to the sunny Jazz who finds herself rescued from an unsavoury situation when Han claims her. There is fantastic banter between Han and Jazz who just can’t help poking the bear…. or should that be dragon every chance. With fantastic chemistry between them we know how that’s going to end

This was my first time listening to a book from Theodora Taylor and first time hearing these narrators. Clementine Dove and Rex Yune gave a fantastic performance giving life to the characters of Jazz and Han. I enjoyed the overall story and felt it transferred well to audible. I’ll definitely have no hesitation in listening to more from both this author and these narrators in future.

Spicy and Delightful

I really enjoyed listening to this book. This is not my first book by the author but it is the first one that I have listened to and I think this one was even better in audiobook.

I really enjoyed Han and Jazz and their steamy spicy love hate relationship. It was fun listening to them go back and forth at each other and then of course subcomb to their passions. I love the give and take and that Jazz was no pushover. It made it all the more entertaining.

The narration was really good to. It was my first time listening to these narrators and I think they did an awesome job.

Overall another solid listen.

What a wild ride

4.25 stars Han and Jazz were such a roller coaster ride of emotions. Both characters were strong in their convictions and it made not only for some incredible spice scenes, but the banter was off the charts. The push and pull was such a delight to witness and I definitely think this author needs to be on my read more from immediately list. I volunteered to listen and review a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

A Delicious Interracial Mafia Romance

Han is a delicious interracial romance and now I need more asian hero, because Han was so freaking amazing! The steam, the violence, the yearning is all on point and I need to go back to read the rest of these books.

Jazz and Han sizzled

YES! this one was hit the spot. I love it when broody alpha males meet women who won't take their crap. Clementine Dove and Rex Yune took us on quite a ride as the narrators and their voices complemented each other. I haven't read any of the prior books in the series and it was clear that this book was part of a Triad universe but I never felt like I was lost during this couple's journey together. The author did an awesome job building each character so that their evolution was something to really enjoy.

The story starts with Jasmine "Jazz" showing up to a K Diamond's strip club to pay off her father's gambling debt. Her lack of guile as well as her natural looks caught Triad boss Han's eye. Han pays K Diamond the debt that Jazz's father owed but now Jazz owed him. That is how their interaction began.

Han and Jazz had immediate chemistry and it permeated the entire story. I loved how Jazz was authentic. She loved surfing and she loved her family. I feel like Han's attraction to Jazz was because she didn't care about frivolous things and wasn't impressed with his status. Jazz was a strong heroine and I admired the way she stood up for herself. I also liked that Han tried to avoid squashing Jazz's spirit even though he could have. It was a nice push and pull but when they gave into their passion, Han and Jazz burned hot! The attraction, sex and love felt organic and certainly sizzled. This was a well written story.

I thought the narrators did a good job capturing the nuances of the emotional issues Han and Jazz felt. It was a smooth audio and I can't wait to listen to the other stories. I do want to go back and start with audiobook 1.

A very entertaining read

The narration of this book was so much fun to read. This book just had me from the first part and never lost me. This one was just so enjoyable and a big reason for that is the narration that was absolutely wonderful. This book was such a joy to listen to.

This book was just such a good time to read for me and I enjoyed it so much. I loved so much about this book and I had the best of time listening to it.

Excellent!!!

Jazz was so excited that she was finally able to purchase her old coach's surf school and camp. It had taken her two years and today was the day her dream was going to come true!

But, when she arrives home her dreams come to a skidding halt. Her father is on the floor bruised and battered. Instead of using the money her sister gave him to pay bills he had gambled it away...and lost.

Han is at the strip club meeting with the son of the 24K Dragons. When joining his brother in the Silent Triad, he had made it clear that he would traffic anything that didn't breathe but agreed to take out the names on the list of a sex trafficking case against the 24K Dragons.

After Kwan Jr. (as he calls him in his head) finally agrees to turn over office space for Han and he offers Han any woman in the club as a thank you for his help. Except Han doesn't do prostitutes. A fact that is well known. As he is trying to come up with a reason for turning down the offer, he is distracted by a woman's voice demanding to see K Diamond.

Jazz enters the strip joint to see two opposing gangs facing off and when she determines the man who threatened her dad, she approaches to pay off his six-figure debt. Her hopes and dreams were being handed over to a criminal. But, then she stands there in shock when he tells her that she still owes interest. Five percent per day for every day past due. There is no way she can pay that amount. It well exceeds what she is already paying since the game her father lost was over two months ago.

When K Diamond tells her he will allow her to pay off the interest by her dancing and later serving favors in their Champagne Room she looks at him in disgust trying to figure a way out. The head of the other group speaks to K Diamond in another language and then looks at her and tells her he has taken care of her debt and belongs to him now.

When she refuses to follow him, he throws her over his shoulder and heads for the mentioned Champagne Room where he expects her to perform. As she is trying to figure out how to escape this situation, he whispers in her ear that she needs to make a believable performance for the cameras to show that Han has claimed her or K Diamond would make her work in his club.

I loved this book and Clementine Dove & Rex Yune brought these characters and their story to life. It is action-packed and full of danger from page one. Jazz is a professional surfer and her dream is to teach surfing in her home state of Hawaii. When Han tells her that she has to be at his beck and call for two years to pay back her debt to him she is outraged and does everything she can to avoid him.

Being the bastard child of a cruel Triad leader and his mother deserting him as a young child, he had no interest in a relationship, but the more time he spent with Jazz the more he wanted to chain her to his side.

This book is full of danger and unexpected twists. Jazz and Han's relationship is scorching hot and hearing their story through the voices of these narrators made it even hotter. Clementine Dove & Rex Yune were an excellent pairing for this audiobook and I highly recommend listening to them!

Talk dirty to me!

This book for me was a solid 4, UNTIL the end. The dirty talking was what I wanted to hear in a story like this! Using the dirty talk instead of PGing it down made me already want to score it higher. BUT the end. Holy crap! A few chapters before the end, there was something absolutely unexpected! As I listened, I had to rewind it because I wanted to make sure I heard it right, and I did! I didn’t expect it & it was a nice surprise! This is my first Theodora Taylor book and it did not disappoint. This is the fourth book in a series, but can be read as a standalone! I’ll definitely have to read/listen to the rest of the books. I definitely recommend if you’re into the genre.

Also, the narrators voices matched the characters personalities perfectly!

Different than I typically Read but so interestin

I listened to this book in audio and it took me a bit to get fully into the story. There was a lot of things going on and I struggled to get to know the characters, but as I got deeper into the story I realized that was part of the character's traits and things started to make a lot more sense. I was hooked so deep to the story by the time I got to the half way point I had to find ways to keep listening I needed to know what was going to happen next. I really want to read Victor's story and all the others involved too.

Kept me intrigued

This is the first book I have read/ listened to by this author and didn’t realize at first it was the 4th book within a series. It can definitely be read alone as well though. I may have understood Han a little better had I read the first books in the series but I still feel I got a really good feel for him. Han was super interesting to me. I enjoyed watching him try and figure out his draw to Jazz. Jazz and her great personality and attitude were awesome! She had me laughing and wanting to high five her badass self! I would recommend this book to others and plan on now getting to know the other two men in this series soon 😉
