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! ** **

I was very disappointed by this book.  I was expecting something like a window into the lives of organized crime actors, but it was nothing but a pornographic soap opera with one-dimensional characters.  The characters did not ring true.  Real mob bosses are misogynistic, live and die by perceived respect, and certainly would never suffer the disrespect of any woman, no matter whose family she comes from.  They love and worship their mothers, however.  No real Shamus would abide a daughter in law like Mel for five seconds.  She would just be gone.  Olivia would be soundly put in her place.  I had to wade through about a hundred pages of lame pornography to get a first glimpse at the story, which never did develop.  Even the pornography was poor.  It was an unsuccessful female attempt to write from the viewpoint of what pornography she thought would appeal to men.  Those men are not endlessly turned on by their wives, no matter how beautiful the wives.  Men like that crave power, novelty, and numbers of women.  There might be an odd woman on the face of the earth who enjoys the type of pornography  that took the place of the story in this book, but I don't know of any.  Poor writing.  I wish I had my 2.99 back.  Yuck.

An excellent read! Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, I could not put it down. Melody’s live is one big lie and secrets have a way of coming out. Those closest to her having been lying to her. I love the relationship between Melody and Liam. He is so sexy and Melody wants to hate him for his lies but just can’t. Action packed, and passionate. An all-around great read.

I convinced myself reading Ruthless People had prepared me for The Untouchables, but I was wrong.  I thought I knew the characters and their motivations, but I quickly realized there was a lot more going on than what I thought and they showed.  Almost everything I had learned was a lie and things were quickly escalating to critical point which meant this book was crazy in a really good way.  I don't know why I was so surprised by everything that went down in this book.  It's 387 pages of pure mind effery.  Seriously.  I loved that the story was told from multiple points of view.  Almost every Callahan had a chance or multiple chances to allow us into their heads. There were some others who also told us what was going on.  Some people might find it overwhelming, but each chapter was clearly marked and I loved having all these different perspectives into what was going on both inside and outside the Callahan's lives.  There wasn't a slow moment in this book. It seemed liked something new was happening every other page, and one problem hadn't been solved before two new hurdles presented themselves. Emotionally, I was all over the place.  There were certain characters I felt strongly about in a positive way and others I just wanted to shoot.  There were moments of dark humor which caused me to laugh and just as many moments when I wanted to cry or yell.  There were also a number of sweet romantic moments that were really touching.  I'm still in love with Mel and Liam.  I don't know if they're ever going to be able to just live their lives in peace.  If it's not somebody from outside the family giving them trouble, it's someone from the inside, and it seemed relentless.  There were some betrayals that rocked them and me, as well as revelations that did the same. I sincerely believe J.J. McAvoy is a genius.  Both of the books in this series so far have been out of this world amazing.  They're so well written and even though you feel like the entire story is unfolding in front of your eyes, every reveal brings two new mysteries and crises with it.  The ending alone raised my blood pressure and got my adrenaline flowing.  I'm super excited the final book in this series, American Savages, will be released in March.  I've got to know what happens to the Callahans.  I know now that it's going to be a bloody, unpredictable, page turner, just like the previous books in the series. The stage is set for a showdown you're not going to want to miss!
