Summary

She’s the devil's daughter, but once, she was my only friend.

Everything changed 15 years ago when her father killed mine. When she betrayed me.

And every day since, all I’ve thought about is vengeance. Brutal, twisted revenge.

I’ve been patient, rising from ruins, growing an empire with my brothers, waiting for my chance to take out her father, the boss of the Palermo crime family.

The time has come. The devil will pay. I'm about to take the only one he has left: his daughter.

She doesn't know I'm Dominic Cavaleri. The same boy she hurt. The one who loved her. But she'll know soon enough...right before I destroy everything she’s ever known.

She's nothing more than a game to me. And this time, I’m playing to win. Even if it means risking my heart.

SO Worth the listen!!


This was my first Lilian Harris, and I was pleasantly surprised. The Devil's Deal is a terrific start to the Cavaleri Brothers series, a wonderfully written dark mafia romance. The Plot and character development are excellent; my attention was captured immediately by Chiara and Dominic's backstory. Chiara and Dominic were childhood friends but were ripped apart by one man's hate and evil actions. Dominic was Chiara's only friend; he and his loving family provided comfort and solace to her. Chiara's home life was broken; she was forced to endure cruelty from an abusive father, the boss of a mafia family. Cavaleri's lives were devastated by Chiara's father's deception and cold brutality. Dominic and his brothers have returned, no longer helpless children, grown and shaped by burning hate and thirst for vengeance. They are back to collect a long overdue debt owed. The question is will Dominic see Chiara as a victim or an accessory?

The storyline is well-paced and riveting, wrapped in suspense, betrayal, deceit, passion, and heat. The connection between Dominic was Chiara's magnetic and explosive chemistry. Both their characters are strong and highly appealing, and I really enjoyed their dynamics and how their story unfolded. I'm certainly going to be following the series.

Outstanding narration by Gideon Frost and Lessa Lambs. Their depiction and portrayal of the characters were great. They were authentic in their roles, making the story even more engaging. The Devil's Deal was an enjoyable listen. I'm recommending the Cavaleri Brothers to those interested in a hot and not-too-dark mafia romance.

Loved this book

I loved this book Kiara’s and Dominic’s story is heartbreaking. They are best friends as kids when he loses his mother things change. Kiara’s is the daughter of a mafia boss who is abusive towards her and her mother. The abuse is so bad that they are on their verge of running when everything falls apart. An act Dominic witnesses changes both of their lives forever. This book has intrigue, family dynamics, and revenge and two people who are falling in love but lies are between them. I can’t wait to get into the stories of Dominic’s brothers Dante and Enzo.

Absolutely amazing!!!

I absolutely loved, loved, loved this book! It captured me from the beginning, ripping out my heart, kept me needing more and never wanting it to end. The story of Chiara and Dominic will completely blow you away! The story was amazing, keeping me on my toes and Chiara and Dominic together, holy smokes! The push and pull between them and the anticipation will burn you. I could not get enough of these two and every scene with them together will heat up your room. Those scenes are some of my favourite ones I've ever read in a book! I can easily say this is one of my top listens of this year, and Dominic is one of my top book boyfriends ever! He gave everything and I took willingly. The agony you feel for him is intense and his words will bring you to your knees. I cannot wait for more of this world and Dominic's brothers' books! The narrators brought these characters to life and Gideon was just perfect Dominic! Amazing work!

Great Romantic Suspense

Chiara and Dominic's story was a rollercoaster of emotions. It hooked me from the beginning and although there were a couple places I had to push through, overall I found this to be a captivating and entertaining listen. Childhood best friends who are separated because life dealt some unfair tragic events that keeps them separated for years. SO much push and pull between the characters and they re-enter each other lives, secrets are unfolded, and twists and turns that will keep you intrigued.

Narrators - Gideon Frost and Leesa Lamb were great bringing the characters to life and capturing the emotions of the story.

absolutely fantastic

Chiara & Dominic are best friends after meeting at school.
Her father is feared by everyone so making friends is hard, keeping them even harder.
As she gets older her father's cruelty become worse.
Dominic's family is the opposite kind and caring welcoming Chiara and her mum at the bakery when they visit.
The death of Dominic's mum in a car crash means the family pull together more if possible.
When Dominic's father and brother Matteo are late home from the bakery one day he goes to find them, but what he see's makes him call his brothers to pack their bags.
Years later he's about to put his long awaited plan into action, keeping his real identity secret he's unsure what to believe, have they both been deceived?.
I truly loved the book and listening to the audio by fantastic narrators was a brilliant way to enjoy it again.
I definitely recommend listening and reading this book.

Fantastic romantic suspense!

So my first Lilian Harris book has made me a huge fan! This book has all the qualities I love to listen to. It's mafia, it's romantic suspense, it's second chance love, it's childhood friends, it has betrayal, revenge, passion, love, fear, tragedy, all the things that make my heart pound and fill with love. We meet Dom and Chiara. Both from different families and best of friends. That is until the day tragedy strikes their families, and they are ripped apart. But do they know why? Now years later, Dom has kidnapped his fair maiden, but she does not know it is him, does not know why and when she finds out, will she be able to deal with the truth? This is fast paced, fun banter, exciting suspense and passion that had me falling in love. It's the best kind of listen! I can't wait for Dante's story next!

And to make this listen even better is the narration team of Lessa Lamb and Gideon Frost. Lamb is always a pleasure to listen to. She understands each character she portrays and pours all the elements of her personality into it. Chiara is feisty and strong, yet vulnerable, each facet portrayed to perfection. This is my first time hearing Frost as the alpha protective hero and I loved him! He pulls out all the stops as the guardian, keeping Chiara safe and giving his heart. He owns the role! This was a fantastic storytelling!

Awesome Story & Narration🎧 Thrilling & Diabolical

Wow, this story just blew me away, it sucked me in right from the start, grabbed my attention and held it hostage for the entire book. It is my first book written by Lilian Harris and it definitely will not be my last, I hope to hear more of her books on audio soon. She is a gifted author with a wonderful writing style and a creative mind, I loved the originality of this story, she takes you into a mafia world but she does not make it all about the mafia, but as an outsider looking in, that said the world building and character development is phenomenal. Chiara Bianchi and Dominick Cavaleri were best friends despite her father forbidding her to spend time with him, he thought the Cavaleri family were trash and did not want her associating with them. Dominick’s family owned the bakery and Chiara’s mother knew they were good people and allowed her to spend time with her friend and hid that from her father. Chiara’s father was ruthless and was cruel to them both, abusive too. Her mother was looking for a way to get them out and promised her it would be soon. But her controlling father goes off the rails and it forever changed both Chiara and Dominicks life. I loved everything about this book and how it all played out. It is a cleverly plotted story with plenty of drama, angst, twists and turns, thrilling suspense, heartfelt emotions and some steamy romance. Lilian Harris, thank you for this amazing story and the wild and emotional rollercoaster ride.

🎧📚🎧And for the amazing narration, Gideon Frost and Lessa Lamb are wonderfully talented narrators and versatile voice artists. They were the perfect cast to bring these characters and story to life, and did so with a complete understanding of each character they portrayed and were believable in every role they played. Lessa Lamb’s Chiara was fantastic, she grew with the role as she aged, from a child to adulthood, and she grasped all sides of her personality thru those years as well, from a frightened child all the way to the confident, strong woman she became. Gideon Frost did the same for Dominick, varying his voice thru the years and becoming the hardened, alpha boss he became. Both were great performing the roles of all the secondary and support characters, too. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the characters’ emotions and projected them into their performance. These entertaining storytellers are versatile voice artists and a pleasure to listen to, and their narration enhanced this already brilliant story to another level. Thank you for another exceptional listen.

devil

loved the dual narration of Gideon Frost and Lessa Lamb

Chiara and Dominic were once close friend, but fate separates them. Dom is hard, ruthless but can be loving. Chiara is a strong character.

Dominic is set for seek revenge, Problem is his feelings to towards the woman who was from his past. Chiara.

♥️❤️ SO GOOD.. I NEED MORE STARS ❤️♥️

This was all kinds of wonderful, dark, thrilling, delicious, drool-worthy, heartbreaking and exciting……

WONDERFUL because best friends Dominic and Chiara, inseparable since third grade, get ruthlessly torn apart from each other at thirteen by a cruel, dangerous manipulative father with blood soaked hands.. and it’s been wonderful listening to their all-consuming Bianchi vs Cavaleri rollercoaster of a second-chance.

DARK because the present-day twenty-eight year old Dominic, with his identity, brothers and powerful Syndicate cloaked, is a very different person from his undamaged thirteen year old self. Now he’s rich, ruthless, determined, hate-filled and bloody revenge on the whole Bianchi family fuels his cold dead heart.

THRILLING because Chiara has grown up in her father’s threatening world and now, at twenty-eight, she’s strong, intelligent and feisty. So she know she’s in deep trouble when she’s kidnapped by the handsome, sexy stranger she’d been flirting with that night.. but she has a plan.

DELICIOUS because captive and hostage push ‘n pull the tense, toxic, combustible sexual chemistry that wraps around each one of their charged interactions.

DROOL-WORTHY because the demands, threats, touches, feisty barbs and dirty talk leads to all kinds of sizzles, fireworks and highly-charged sexy moans and groans.

HEARTBREAKING because, below the ashes of deep wounds, rise tentative new roots which will be severely damaged by their deadly enemy. And the secrets, betrayals and mistruths between them will also threaten their hard-won new roots.. and their rekindled love.

And finally EXCITING because this new to me author’s talented world-building, imagination and abilities captured my heart and soul and her action-packed, sweet, brutal, beautiful, full of feels second-chance rollercoaster blew me away. And the characters and their twists and turns were all skilfully brought to life by Gideon and Lessa whose enjoyable dual pov narration entertained me as I cooked and cleaned the day away engulfed in a star-crossed lover’s second chance.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely.. but this happy couple’s happy end has a tbc cliffhanger that will lead to Dante Cavaleri’s story.

Disappointed

I won’t lie I was disappointed. This book had so much potential but was boring. It was a looong book that went in circles on the same issue that was such a simple thing that happened so long ago, i got bored at so many points I would zone out or fall asleep… I wish I hadn’t used my last credit on it.

A MUST READ FOR DARK ROMANCE LOVERS!

OMG!!!! What a sorted web we weave…

This story is dark and oh so amazing! This world that was built by Lilian for Kiara and Dom… I am literally salivating to read the next book! So much happened in this story that I still can’t believe I read only one book.

The ups, downs, twists, turns and the secrets that were withheld! Holy H3ll was this an amazing tale! It’s been a long time since I’ve read a new author that just captivated me so much! This was an audio book but when I had to press pause… it made me anxious because I felt like I was leaving Dom and Kiara hanging!!

I just know the next book is about Dante and I can’t wait. The little taste I had of him in this book made me want more! Lilian… you are a true wordsmith and storyteller. How that beautiful head of yours comes up with these stories, I will never fathom! I need more!!!

Obsessed!!!

I love this so much!!!

The Devils Deal is book #1 in the Cavaleri Brothers series and is narrated by Gideon Frost and Tessa Lamb.

Dominic and Chiara are best friends and always together. They don't know what their families do, they just love to be around each other. Everything is perfect until they are 13, and something happens that rips them apart.

15 years later, they meet again, but it's nothing like it was when they were kids.

I love this book so much!!! I couldn't put my Kindle down. Gideon and Tessa are amazing as Dom and Chiara too! If you haven't read or listened to this book yet, go do It now!!!

A Dark Mafia Romance / Romantic Suspense!

This was my first Lilian Harris's book, and won't be my last. This is the first book in the Cavaleri Brothers Series, a Dark Mafia Romance / Romantic Suspense. Dominic and Chiara's second chance to love is well written, passionate, intense, and intriguing, filled with drama, revenge, angst, and twists and turns. The characters are well developed, and intriguing. The supporting characters have an important part in the story. Lessa Lamb and Gideon Frost did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listening to The Devil's Pawn, the next book in the series. #TheFlock
