Vicki Calvetti made it out of the mob—or so she hoped. But when the old family hitman, the FBI, the Justice Department, and a smoking hot man from her past crash land on her doorstep, she learns she's not quite done.

An undercover cop chasing revenge, Blake Reilly gets the shock of his life when Vicki walks back into his life and into his club full of more drug dealers than a pharmaceutical convention.

Catching up doesn’t take long, and their undeniable chemistry is full-speed-ahead until someone ends up dead, putting both their lives at risk unless Vicki can remember the secrets she paid to forget.

The Untouchable series is best enjoyed in order:
Book #1 Untouchable
Book #2 An Untouchable Christmas, novella
Book #3 Unforgettable

Unforgettable 4.2 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.

Unforgettable was a great read!! It was the second book in the Untouchables series but can be read as a stand alone. I do plan to read Untouchable next though because that story sounds so good & it might answer some questions. The heat between Vickie & Blake is HOT. The story moves at a great pace & has a lot of drama. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Vicki is a Mafia Princess but is finally out of the life and living comfortably as a hyptnotist. When she sees her Uncle Manny, a hitman for the mob, outside her house, Vicki knows something is up. Not sure what is going on, Uncle Manny starts leaving her clues. One leads her to Deja Vu, a club owned by Vicki's ex, Blake. Blake is shocked when Vicki walks into the club after so many years. But she's in danger but no one knows why. Vicki is her own woman and doesn't need a man to protect her but Blake thinks otherwise. I liked the bantering between an alpha male and a strong woman. My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read.

Unforgettable by Cindy Skaggs is, well, for the lack of a better word...Unforgettable! This is Book 3 of the Untouchables Series, and while part of a series, it can be read as a standalone. While not having read any of the other books in this series, I had no issues whatsoever in following along with this story. Unforgettable has much to offer readers with the well-written storyline, engaging characters and fast-paced action and drama. This romantic suspense is off-the-charts with the sizzling chemistry between Blake and Vicki and the seat-gripping roller coaster-of-a-ride intrigue. Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Readers Copy of this book. I absolutely love second chance romances, and this one was fabulous! Victoria and Blake were together in college, but her life as a mafia princess and her need to protect those she loves sent her running. And while they may have been apart all these years, the memories of their time together haunted them both. A chance encounter brought them crashing back into the past and each other’s arms, but who would end up protecting whom this time around? I loved this story! My heart was pounding from the start, whether it be from the unknown dangers that lurked around Victoria or the closeness of Blake. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for it all to come together. The chemistry between Victoria and Blake was palpable. I was melting with every mention of his voice and the nearness of him. The sex was passionate and sensual, and their falling in love was inevitable. I loved Victoria’s strength, sarcasm, vulnerability and her struggle to let herself love and belong to someone. And what can I say about Blake?! That man had me flushed and shaking with anticipation with each whisper and caress. And his love for Victoria was evident in everything he did. This was a wonderful twist to the usual dark and intense mafia romance genre. I enjoyed the plot, but also wished for more closure to the criminal element and not just the love story. I’m hoping we’ll get more from this series and this particular story line down the road.

I received an ARC for voluntary review for netgalley. I just loved Victoria and Blake. Victoria was no joke, she was fearless, in some parts of the story, she did not back down, she did what was necessary to protect those she loved. Blake, loved Victoria, the only pet peeve I had with him was letting Victoria think there was more to Dez, besides that loved him. We had a great cast of characters in this book, Mountain man Mike, as Victoria called him, Eddie who was so loyal, loving Sophia, and you can not forget uncle Manny. Book kept you on your toes, I did not read first book, but I plan to, hope you read this one.

Victoria Calvetti has done her best to distance herself from her family, since they're now all dead; you'd think it would be easy. But never so. Now living in Colorado a man she recognizes from the pst known as the Grim Reaper appears, then leaves her a cryptic message at the coffee shop she frequents. An address to go to. Her curiosity gets the best of her, Victoria is one feisty woman. Not someone you'd want to mess with. She now works as a hypnotherapist. As it turns out, this same day her heat stops working, the cat she didn't want to adopt escapes the house, a client shows up angry and she sees the Reaper. She's labeled it the worst day of her life. It's about to get worse. She goes to the club. Sitting outside watching who should she see walk up but the man she loved and left to save him (she told herself) with some "woman" on his arm. Her jealousy reared it's head and while she wasn't going to go in the club, she judged by the appearance of the bikes and men she saw walking in, wasn't a woman friendly club, she goes. There she sees Blake once again. And he sees her. A few fights ensue. Men are put it their place, it's because of who her family was. Not her, but her mob father and brother. Her brother dead, after she saved her best friend and child after she married her brother, to get her away from them. She blamed herself for not stopping things sooner. She carries a lot on her shoulders. Blake clearly wants to pick up things, she wants nothing to do with him, assuming he's dirty and into the mob. She walks. He follows. Until he explains his role to her and what he's doing as they return to her house, that's been tossed and destroyed by someone looking for something. Blake is angry and demands she stay with him Vicki isn't happy but does so. There's a cast of characters here that makes this story really click. I really liked Blake, and Eddie. You feel like Eddie is an old friend. Mick was a friend of Blake's. He's a bit rough around the edges but ok. Dez who was Blakes partner I didn't care for although we don't see much of her. She comes off bitchy. Vicki was annoying at times because she constantly argued with him, but she's also got this cool vibe going on. Other than that, the book flowed nicely and the story intriguing and you don't know what's going on truly until that last pages of the book. Well written and add some smoldering scenes in there and it was a great book. My only peeve is that is just ended. I turned the page looking for more and, nada. I can only hope there's a second book that follows this one. This book is a keeper. **advanced reader copy from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review*

Manic Mafia Mayhem and a superb second chance romance! I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading an action packed second chance romance and enthralling mobster suspense! I had thoroughly enjoyed 'Untouchable' the first novel in this series and the Christmas novella special story, 'An Untouchable Christmas' so jumped at the opportunity to read this sequel. This story concerns Victoria Calvetti who helped return her kidnapped nephew to his mum, her sister-in-law and best friend, Sophie, in the first novel in this series. Now Vicki hopes she, too, has escaped from the mob but her hopes are in vain. As her Uncle Manny, a mob hit man, leaves clues for her to follow she spots her first love, Blake Reilly and follows him into a club full of mobsters. She used to be untouchable because of her brother and father but, as both are now dead, others are out for revenge on her family. Walking into the Club could unwittingly ruin the undercover operation that Blake is involved with and puts both their lives at risk. . . . This is a fast paced sequel which builds on the previous novel. It is very easy to empathise with Vicki, who has done her best to estrange herself from her mob family. You'd think that would be easy as both her parents and brother are now dead but no, once a mob princess they're unlikely to let you go. She has secrets that are hidden, so deep that she can't remember them. Can her job as a hypnotherapist help? What is it that others seek from her? Can Blake still protect her? He's determined she won't escape him this time but will their romance be rekindled or will the mob, their past and their family connections force them apart again? When you step into this story, take care, beware of a hot undercover ex, drug running mobsters from a variety of gangs and not all on the same side, and whatever you do, don't forget her elderly uncle who was a mob hit man. With Blake and Mick out for revenge, can they still keep Vicki safe? This is a great page turner with a superb surprise ending! Many thanks to the publishers for gifting me, without obligation, an ARC of this novel via NetGalley.

This was a great read by Cindy Skaggs that I was into from the first to the last pages of the book. Cindy Skaggs definitely knows how to draw you into the story right away and keep your attention until the very end! Victoria has done everything she can to get away from her mobster father and brother and their family. Since most of them are dead, you would think that this would be easy for Victoria to do but that is not the case. They always seem to pop up somewhere and haunt her! When the Grimm Reaper shows up and leaves her a message and address for her to meet him at at her favorite coffee shop, she knows it can only be one person. Out of curiosity, Victoria goes to meet him. After the meeting, Victoria runs right back to her ex, Blake. Blake is into a totally different business than Victoria is used to. He is running a strip club and is working with the Feds, but Victoria does not know that little tidbit. She only knows what she can see and she thinks that Blake is totally mixed up in the wrong stuff now. The suspense and action in this story will keep you turning the pages as well as the steamy scenes between Victoria and Blake. I don't want to give away anything in my review because you have to experience the story for yourself to get the whole effect of how this all ends. I hope that there are more stories in this Untouchables series in the near future from Cindy Skaggs. Great read!

Loved this book! A mafia princess who thinks she has escaped the life has her past barrel right back into her present with a vengeance. One day she's happily working as a hypnotherapist and enjoying a solitary life, the next has the FBI, the DOJ, and the mafia taking over her life - including an old boyfriend from her past. If you enjoy a compelling mystery, fast action, and a hot romance, you will love this book. It had me turning pages just as quickly as possible. While it is part of a series, it is a stand alone novel. This is a must read for fans of the genre and I have added the author to my must read authors' list.

*voluntarily and honestly reviewing this ARC I got from Entangled Publishing via NetGalley* I liked Vic and how crazy she seemed with her brilliant mind, and Blake was an interesting character. The writing style was hard to follow, especially the dialogue because it constantly felt like it was going back and forth. Not a bad read, just not for me. If you like action and romance, this is the book for you.
