Summary

Notorious Mafia enforcer and right hand of the Cosa Nostra, Maximo DiMarco has always looked out for me. He’s my protector. My brothers’ best friend. My crush—with the body of a god and the mind of a devil.

And I am just a spoiled Mafia princess. At least that’s who most people think I am. They don’t look at me long enough to see the real me. But he sees....

He is dark and dangerous and lethal, but he’s the only man who makes me feel like I’m alive. It’s a pity he’s too loyal to my brothers to ever act on the sparks that constantly fly between us....

Or is he?

Because when he finally loses control, it’s even more than I ever dreamed it could be. And even though he tells me that the two of us aren’t an option, I see the look in his eyes every time we’re together. He’s only ever a breath away from losing that control again.

But Max is a man with a dark past and secrets that he can’t escape. When that past catches up with us, it threatens what might be our only shot at happiness. Because I would give up everything I’ve ever known for a life with him. And when my brothers find out about us, I just might have to.

This book is a stand-alone brother's-best-friend romance. It features:

  • A jealous, possessive MC
  • Age gap
  • Praise/punishment
  • Pierced MC
  • Inexperienced FMC
  • "Touch her and die" vibes

My favourite book from the series.

I could not wait to get my hands on the audiobook of Joey.

Joey is book two in the Chicago Ruthless series and my personal favourite.

Joe Arden is incredible as always, but I'd never listened to a Brooke Daniels audio performance before, and she absolutely smashed it.

I would love to listen to more of her work.

Outstanding performances, outstanding story.

I could not get enough of this audiobook.

A great fun read. Max & Joey are perfect together. I like how Joey is a mafia princess but isn't stupid or bratty and Max once he made up his mind nothing was gonna stop him getting his woman. it was good to see the other siblings too. such a treat

3.5 stars. Not as exciting as book 1.

I didn't enjoy this book as much as I thought I would. I don't know whether my disapointment was because all the hype on Instagram had built up my expectations, or because Dante, the first book of the series, was insane (in a good way), and set the bar too high. It didn't have all the tension and suspense of the first book. I predicted a lot of the plot twists. And the last exciting event in the story was resolved over an hour before the end of the book. And i was thinking "maybe there's another secret waiting to jump out of the bushes, but it never came."

The love story between Joey and Max didn't really draw me in, possibly because there wasn't much build up to it. they also didn't spend a lot of time alone together (on-page), outside the bedroom. I did like the the portrayal of their physical connection, though. I just didn't connect with the couple like I did with Kat and Dante in the first book.

There were a few angtsy moments that could have been drawn out more, to build anticipation and help us connect more with the characters. Any conflict between the characters got resolved pretty quickly. The scene where her brothers found about about them was really good, though.

The narrators, Joe Arden and Brooke daniels put in a really good performance, though, especially the spicy bits. Those scences were hot and there were quite a few of them. I loved that this was duet style narration. The only issue i had with the performance is sometimes it was difficult to distinguish between Max and Dante's voices, and ocassionally Lorenzo.

That being said, I'm going to continue the series, because I want to know more about Lorenzo (the main character of the next book). He's the strong silent type who seems to have hidden depths.

Joe Arden 🥵🥵🥵🥵

Honestly this is my favourite audio book I have ever listened to

It’s infinity starts from me and I will never stop recommending this audio to anyone who will listen.

I loved max Di Marco character in the book but Joe Arden with his narration just takes the character to a whole other level. The way he thinks and talks about Joey the fmc let alone the things he says directly to her holy hell 🥵🥵🥵🥵. and those filthy dirty giggles

“ never forget who controls your body baby girl. Your ass, Your Pussy , your mouth , your pleasure ,your pain . All of it belongs to me “

ok moving on from my Max obsession this books is

mafia
brothers best friend
virgin fmc
pierced mmc
dirty talk
bad ass fmc

Joey has been in love with Max for years what she doesn't realise is that it is not just one way. Max is seriously struggling to control himself around Joey.

The secret relationship only takes up about 1/3 of the book before the plot moves on and we are following the Moretti family trying to uncover hidden secret and reveal who is the real threat to their family.

Máximo and the Mafia Princess

Joey and Max’ forbidden romance was full of spice and had me hooked from the start. Narrator’s did an incredible job as always.

Fantastic audio of a brilliant mafia romance

Having loved the book I was keen to hear the audiobook and this did not disappoint. The two actors and the dual pov works so well and they have caught the growliness of Max and the bratiness of Joey perfectly. Thoroughly enjoyed hearing this and would highly recommend this spicy, drama filled mafia romance.
