Summary

Jack

I’m the son of Liam O’Reagan, next in line to wear the crown.
And when I prove myself worthy, I will RULE over the Irish Mafia.
I don’t have time for distractions - much less time for a woman who has always been the bane of my existence.
When Maeve comes back into my life, I fight like hell to resist the pull she has on me.
An attraction that has only grown stronger with time.
But, when trouble lands her at my feet, I take the opportunity to have what I truly want.
I offer her a deal. I’ll help her, but the cost will be one night in my bed.
One night of submission.
One night to have her completely at my mercy.
If only I had known my battle with Maeve would start a war.

Maeve

Jack is the only one who can help me.
Too bad, he hates me.
But I have no choice but to go to him.
It turns out, hate is a powerful motivator, and I just handed him a way to punish me.
He offers me his help—for a price. Everything in his world has a price.
One night in his bed.
He’s everything a woman would want, so this should be easy. Only, I’m a virgin, and he terrifies me.
I should run, but I won’t.
I can’t.
I just pray this one night doesn’t destroy us both.

Enthralling!

Mafia Prince, the first instalment in the Young Irish Rebels, is exquisitely penned, cleverly plotted, and gripping. Vi Carter's character development is phenomenal; the realism of the environment, mafia culture, and characteristics of the cast were all spot-on. The main and the secondary characters were multi-layered, flawed, damaged, complex, and totally authentic. Jack and Maeve's relationship with each other was as complicated as the torrent of emotions and thoughts running through them, old wounds, grudges, and misunderstood childhood memories.

Their story was utterly enthralling and sensual, wrapped in suspense, intrigue, and surprising twists and turns. The constant was Jack's trials and his relationship with his father and the rest of the clan. As well as Maeve's relationship with her own broken family and her unshakable loyalty to a heroin addict brother and alcoholic mother. The ending was wholly gratifying, leaving me with a satisfied smile. Moreover, Vi Carter set the grounds for the next book in the series, which can't be recorded fast enough.

The narration was spectacular. Michael Gallagher and Sarah Jane Rose depiction of the characters, personalities, and emotions was flawless. Their Irish accents made the characters even more genuine. Mafia Prince is a very well-written mafia romance with quality narration, one I will highly recommend.

My Thoughts on Mafia Prince

A new dark mafia romance by a new to me author that I absolutely could not get enough of. There were so many intense moments. And just so much I didn’t see coming. There were all the elements I love and look forward to in my dark mafia romance but I just didn’t expect how I was going to get it. By the end though I liked both main characters and am very excited for more of this series. The narrators did an amazing job. I absolutely loved both of them. Not only did I love the accents, but I think they did great changing up the different tones for the different characters. I want more of this series, these characters and definitely these narrators.

Great mafia story

Jack has known Maeve since they were young although he gave her nothing but vitriol . When Maeve is in trouble due to her mother’s and brothers drug addiction she goes to Jack to ask for help . He agrees to help as long as she will spend one night in his bed . He’s still kidding himself he hates her and Maeve actually does hate Jack but she doesn’t know he’s never hated her it was just easier for him to act that way. I enjoyed the story and the narration was good especially Michael Gallagher his Irish accent was perfect.

I enjoyed this audio in many levels. I like the characters, and the dialogue was pretty good. The audio took the authors words, and elevated it to a whole new level. The performance was amazing.

I really enjoyed this mafia book. With good strong characters and a non stop action storyline you won’t be able to press pause. A fantastic performance from both Sarah and Michael.

Dark Irish Mafia Romance

Mafia Prince by Vi Carter is a Dark Irish Mafia Romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Michael Gallagher and Sarah Jane Rose. This is the first book in the Young Irish Rebels series.

This is the first book of Vi's that I have read and it definitely won't be my last. I was pulled in from the first chapter and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Maeve and Jack. Their relationship was messy but you couldn't help but root for them.

I can't wait for the next book in the series Mafia King to be released on audio so I can get Emma and Shay's story.

Michael and Sarah did an amazing job on the narration. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

I would highly recommend this book if you love dark romances, mafia romances, or romantic suspense.

Fantastic start to the series

What an exciting way to start this series! It's my first Vi Carter book, and I am in love with her romantic suspense. Maeve finds herself in a predicament. She needs money and fast to keep herself and her family safe. Who does she turn to? Jack, next in line to rule the Irish mafia. After being shunned years earlier by Jack, she knows he may be her only hope. But what he wants in return may be her demise. Now owning the woman he was always attracted to, but not allowed to have, he has to make decisions. Decisions for himself, her, their families and the future. It's all caught up with danger, deception, and family greed. At first I wasn't sure if I would like Jack. He was exceptionally mean, but getting to know him as he learns about himself gave me a softer view. Maeve is as loyal as anyone could be. Her family is everything despite their problems, and her heart is gold. I loved getting to know these two, and their families as we line up for the next book. I look forward to see where things go next.

Irish accents are not an easy task, and this was a complete Irish narration. Michael Gallagher and Sarah Jane Rose are exceptional and made this experience exciting and passionate. I loved them together and hope to hear more from them.

Mafia Prince

Mafia Prince is the first book in the Young Irish Rebels series. This book is told from dual points of view from Jack and Maeve.

When Maeve's brother finds himself in a bit of trouble Maeve will do whatever she can to save her brother. She goes to her friend's brother who treated her like she was at the bottom of the earth when they were kids.

His price is for her to stay with him until something happens. However the longer she stays the more their feelings start to develop. Maeve's brother just keeps adding more debt, and her mother isn't helping matters. She's an alcoholic who chooses booze over her kids. Jack sees the situation Maeve is in and he doesn't want her returning there ever.

So much comes out of this story. A lot of twisted things I wasn't expecting, and I enjoyed every minute of it. You don't know who you can trust, and what's going to happen next. I can't wait to see where this story goes next with the next book!

🌻An enjoyable listen🌻

🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻V from Kansas🌻🌻🌻🌻🌻

Although this wasn’t the greatest Mafia romance I’ve ever listened to, it was pretty good. The story isn’t all that deep but, it isn’t totally predictable, either.

There are some subjects that might make some listeners uncomfortable, such as drug abuse, alcoholism, murder and torture, although the author does not write about these things in great detail. In addition, the sex scenes are not often or extremely descriptive.

The narration is pretty good, although true duet narration could have made it better, especially since 75% of the chapters are written from the heroine’s POV and the female narrator’s version of a male voice isn’t very masculine.

All in all, if I had to describe this book in a few words, I describe it as a barley R rated Irish Mafia Romance.

Action Packed

I do enjoy a good mafia romance with extra spice. Bonus if it has action scenes. MMC was good, but the FMC…ugh! I get it, but how many times can one person blunder. 😂

Such amazing narrators and story!

I loved how the narrators had accents that were true to the characters! They certainly brought this story to life in my head and I would love to listen to more of VI’s stories! With this being my first story for all 3, I can say it was a pleasant surprise for me.

Jack and Maeve perfect series start!

Jack O’Reagan, raised to be ruthless, rule without conscience, and never show weakness. Maeve Reilly, she’s known Jack forever, though he’s only let her see his cruel taunting side. Now years later she’s forced to approach him for help. The cost he demands in return is well, I’ll not engage in spoilers! Vi Carter has written a dark, twisted hot romance filled with rich, well drawn, fully developed characters, and a story so unpredictable that I was kept constantly off guard and on the edge of my seat. This story had it all, mystery, action, so much action, an excellent well developed plot, fabulous dialogue, sweet blazing heat and beyond brilliant narration. There is no lack of nefarious characters in this one. Truth be told, there are quite a few I would have cheerfully taken for a ride through the pine barrens! I was shocked and kept guessing right up till the end! I was also completely absorbed and I really wanted these two to find a way to find their forever. I also really loved how perfectly the author was able to wrap up this story with a perfect HEA while seamlessly setting up book two without resorting to any type of cliffhanger. Five star fabulous!
