Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Top 25 Best Seller 

Five years ago, my fiancé disappeared. He left me with a wedding dress I’d never wear. Left me with the kind of scars that can’t be healed. The man I built my future on vanished like a ghost. All that remained were my broken heart and a million unanswered questions. 

Until a mysterious stranger arrives in town. 

Tall, dark, and dangerous, Kage is as full of secrets as he is sex appeal. Though I know he’s hiding something, I’m drawn to him like a moth to flame. Heat crackles between us with every look, desire flares into passion, and I fall hard, helpless to resist. 

But then I discover he’s been sent to collect on an unpaid debt from my missing fiancé....

And that debt is me.

smutty and straight forward

This was my first mafia romance and I just don't think they're for me. Kage was hot as hell and very dominant, Natalie was damaged as hell but I loved her sass. The plot wasn't anything phenomenal and I didn't love the ending. Too heternomative for me. But the sex was hot, why else would I have bought this!?

HOWEVER the voice actors were AMAZING and really threw their whole vussies into this story! I'll definitely be following them.

Pleasantly surprised

I wasn’t sure when I saw 3 narrators and they it was back and forth between character. I really liked it. This author is new to me. JT Geisinger The story was fantastic. I really enjoyed the characters and many times laughed out loud from comments made by Natalie and Sloane. This book is well worth the credit and I am looking forward to the next one. And the sex scenes-very hot. Well done

Incredible Audio experience!

Holy F&$#ing shit! This book. This book!!!!
This book is in my top 3 favorite books of all time. Definate favorite in audio ever!
First off...the narration in this is freaking outstanding!! The 2 female narrators are new to me and were incredible!!! All the little laughs, Cries, giggles, moans...and the banter with the 2 female characters is an absolute delight! And Troy Duran, well, he's always sexy AF with his deep voice! His low growls, his deep whispers... Swoon!!! My next book will be narrtored by him too! Lol!  The duet narration made this story so incredible to listen too! The intensity of the characters, the suspense in the story, the hotness factor was all just  freaking fantastic!  J.T. Geissinger has become fast favorite author and her new releases can't come out in audio fast enough! Ruthless Creatures is a relisten for sure!

Really enjoyed it

I enjoyed this book. The story was a little predictable but I liked it. Nat is funny and Kash tells it exactly how it is (it was my favourite part) he was forward but has secrets that made him so yummy!

INTENSE, HOT & FULL OF DELICIOUS THRILLS

This is so so good.. in fact I think it’s one of her best.. maybe because of the duet-style narration which brings it up to a whole new, and very entertaining, level and makes the interactions and banter flow smoothly. This is how a Bratva Kingpin claimed his Queen.

For five years Art School Teacher Natalie has mourned her Fiancé who went missing just before their wedding rehearsal and her life’s been in limbo since then with questions of what happened to him haunting her days.. and not even her bff can snap her out of it. Then, on a rare night out, Natalie’s eyes land on a handsome, sexy, hot stranger whose charisma and intensity fades the world around her. Kage is possessive, dark, dangerous, deadly and is the Shakespeare of the dirtiest smut.. he’s also got a suitcase full of secrets. Oh yea.. and he’s rooted deep and high in the Russian Mafia.. a Kingpin who doesn’t want a Queen.

She was just meant to be a job but, for once, Kage just couldn’t pull the trigger.. or get her out of his mind.. or stay away.. or tell her her truths. And he becomes a obsessive, possessive alpha who knows Natalie is his.. and, when these two very different people agree to what they’re willing to lose and what they’ve got to gain, it’s nuclear sexual fusion. He doesn’t claim to be a good man.. he won’t answer many of Natalie’s questions.. he is a demanding lover.. he comes with secrets and strings.. but he promises never to lie. Kage may be good for Natalie’s dormant libido but he’s bad news for her equilibrium and, when Natalie says yes to his touch, she seals her fate. Natalie is sassy, fierce and feisty and her strong attitude brings the ‘ bossy’ side out of Kage. What follows certainly won’t be a fairytale.. however it will be hot, heavy and will have lite bdsm in it.. along with suspense, dead bodies, humorous snappy smooth banter, delicious friction, mystery, twists, revelations and a happily ever after.

Worth a credit? Oh yes, I loved every single intense second of it and the duet-style dual POV narration was perfect. And the friendship and easy banter between Natalie and her best friend Sloane was great too.

Disappointed

I wish the male protagonist had possessed at least one redeeming quality. I understand that he is supposed to be an anti-hero, but I didn’t see him do one selfless or brave thing throughout the entire story; every action was to his own benefit, despite the harm done to the female protagonist. Nothing he did reflected love, just lust (which was fun), desire, and possession. At least the book was good for a little audio-porn as the narrators did a wonderful job.

H🔥🔥🔥T‼

Mmmenage narration? 🤣 OH. MY. LAWD. Thisistoofreakinhot! 🥵 Chapter 22 at 16:18 🤯🤯🤯‼‼ Troy Duran you nearly killed me! I swear the story is real good too! Mystery, action (the pew pew kind, not just headboard banging against the wall), and unwanted persistance. Sloane is the GOAT! ❤ please let book 2 be about her!!! 🙏🙏🙏
Troy, Brooke and Michelle better receive awards for their performances. ❤❤❤

Omg... swoon

First off, holy sex. I loved every detail. I even had my husband listen. He lifted a brow. Cage is my dream man. Troy’s (male narrator) voice is amazing. His raspy voice gives me chills and smiles. This is my second book by this author and I’m hooked

Hot, Hot, Hot

Great book! I can’t wait to read the next one in the series. Great, hot unlikely romance. I could feel the sparks from this hot and sexy story down to my toes. The performers were outstanding. It was definitely the best team of performers I’ve heard in audio books.

4 STARS

I’ll start off with the narration because it was amazing!! It’s duet which happens to be my favorite. All three narrators were so easy to follow and really brought the book to life.

Overall the book for me was a 4 star listen. I’m usually a darker read type of girl so I was expecting the hero to be a little darker based on the title. While he wasn’t I thoroughly enjoyed the story and I can now mark my first book by this author off my list. It was funny at times and of course had plenty of panty melting scenes. There’s also a mystery surrounding the heroine and my heart broke for her when she was struggling to come to terms with what happened in the past. Her and her BFF were a riot together and I’m looking forward to the next book. This is a standalone so don’t fear you’ll get your HEA.

OMG this was an amazing book!!!!

I am so shocked that I'm just bow hearing about this one from the booktok peeps. This book was off the charts hot and SERIOUSLY amazing. I fully plan to reread this one as my go to book from now on. Sure there's a couple of predictable things in it, but the intensity of the connection and spicy level of this book makes this book stand out immensely. Also-if you listened to this book-the narrators are freaking spot on and the duet style is so awesome!!! READ IT!!! You will not regret it!!!

Incredible, enjoyable listen

I’ve read and loved this book so I tried it out on audio. The performances are spot on and add so much to this amazing story. The banter between Nat and Sloan makes me feel as if I’m among friends. I wish I could find a Cage for myself. Highly recommend this audiobook it was one of the best I’ve ever listened to and I’ve been a listener for over 25 years to books.

Great book

I wish they would make a book featuring Sloan. This was a great story; it started slow and almost lost my attention, but once the action started, it was pretty good. The narrators were on point; brought out the essence of each characters. Love Troy’s deep sexy voice.
