This is the best ending, I could have imagined for this series! In the beginning, I didn't want to love these people, but I grew to love them. These characters are fantastic, I hated to see it end. I hope J. J. McAvoy takes pity on us, and continues the series.

Normally I hate trilogies because I find them to be too long, BUT I LOVE THIS Trilogy so much!! I wouldn't mind 3 or 4 extra books in this series because it's that good! In the world of the mafia you can continue telling someones story. I also think that Liam and Melody can develop much further both individually and as a couple. This book was AMAZING. I really loved everything about it. Liam and Melody can be so coldhearted but I think that is the way to be in this world. You can't show any weaknesses because people will take advantage. I don't want to say anything about the plot because it ruin the story. But this series is one of my ALL TIME favorites!! JJ McAvoy really knows how to write an amazing story!

A FREAKING ROLLERCOASTER, but a PERFECT one (you’ve been warned) This book series messed with my emotions!! I’m not even kidding, I found it hard to function once i was finished. I’ve been hangover (from reading books, of course) but, never to this extent that my mind is occupied day and night with the characters. MY BREATH HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY, HELP!!!! Look at how far Melody has gotten into between the first and the last book. who knew she’d go from this “cold” person to be the caring, loving women that would give her life for her family? I’m not much of a crier, but I’ve got to admit I had tears in my eyes by the 4th book (A bloody Kingdom)…what an effing plot twist..i refused for it to end that way, and thankfully it hasn’t. I was NOT disappointed. For characters; Liam Alec Callahan has become one of my many book boyfriends (I’ll be doomed once Melody discovers this. RIP me) Melody Nicci Giovanni Callahan The most badass female character I have ever read!! hands down. This couple of “Melody X Liam“. The Italian beautiful queen and boss of the Italian mafia and Ceann na Conairte, the devilish handsome boss of the Irish one. They’re the definition of power couple. I could go on and on talking about these two, but i seriously don’t want to spoil y’all because believe me..this story worth your time! Every. Single. Second & Minute!!!! J J McAvoy, THANK YOU dearly for such a beautiful series, and looking forward the “Children of Vice” series. would I recommend it? HELL to the YES! ** **

This book has so many grammatical errors. He was used when it should have been him. The same with the and they. There are an average of one per page. Was it proofread?

Holy crap balls is all I can think after finishing the last book in the series. I am flabbergasted at how the author made me like let alone fall in love with these crazy, sick and demented characters. Although when it comes to there family if you are loyal to them then they at least tolerate them. Lol. At the beginning of the series Melody and Liam are just outright cold blooded killers and as the series progressed they are still the same cold blooded killers but they have softened a bit. This is a young mafia and I loved watching how these characters progressed. I'm in awe at how the author was able to have them get away with so much stuff but wasn't ridiculous able it. The way things unfold makes sense. I loved the love and devotion that Liam and Melody had for one another and I enjoyed seeing a softer side to both when it came to their son Ethan and later their other children. The epilogue was a nice tie up to see what became of them and all Liam's other family members. I love mafia books and this book and the whole series was quite remarkable. I highly recommend this series to anyone that enjoys a good mafia series. But seriously be forewarned this series is brutal.

Each book in the Ruthless People trilogy has been outstanding. However, none more so than American Savages. Everything that started with Ruthless People and built in The Untouchables has finally come to a head in this book and it's bloody, brilliant, and unforgiving. The story is fantastic and gripping. It's everything I thought I wanted in the finale and more. I wasn't sure how J.J. McAvoy was going to top The Untouchables. That book had so many twists I was almost afraid to turn the page to find out what was going to happen next. With American Savages, I knew things were going to get uglier but there was no hesitation. I threw myself into the book and didn't stop, even when I knew there was something horrible awaiting me on the next page. I read through my heart pounding, my tears, and my fear. I absolutely loved how the story started out, taking us into the past and giving us glimpses into a teenage Melody and Liam. That really set the stage for the story. Liam and Melody are truly made of something else. I don't know if I admire their minds or fortitude more. Only those two could take the horrors that happened to them and turn them into something good for them. Whether it was Liam going to jail or Melody being kidnapped and then staying away from home, those two never lost sight of what was important: each other and family. I was surprised to see how romantic Melody was. Granted it wasn't in the traditional sense, with flowers and pretty words, but you could easily feel how much she loved Liam and Ethan, their son. I liked seeing the two grow stronger. I also loved how the story was told from multiple points of view. It allowed me to get as much perspective as possible, but it still didn't reveal too much, because I didn't see the end coming. I knew it was going to brutal and rough, but I had no idea how much. There's so much more I want to mention but won't because I feel it could ruin the story and reading experience for you. The last half of the book flew by. Whenever you find the guts to sit down with this book, make sure you have plenty of time to read it undisturbed. It's the only way you'll get through this book. I have to give J.J. McAvoy props for once again taking me on an unforgettable journey with Liam and Melody. I've fallen in love with the Callahans and the madness that comes along with them. I've laughed at their triumphs and sobbed at their losses. I don't think I'll ever be ready to say goodbye to them or turn the page on their story. J.J. McAvoy is an author that needs to be watched and read. I expect greater things from her in the future. This series has set the bar high and I look forward to seeing how she meets the challenge.
