Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Romance
Release Date: December 27, 2018
When I stumbled into a mafia run club seeking a job, I was looking for protection. Little did I know I’d need protection from him.
Conor O’ Callahan was exactly the kind of danger I was trying to avoid. He was gorgeous as sin with an accent hotter than Hades, but that’s where the charm ended.
He was also cynical, cold, and downright cranky.
So, you could imagine my surprise when he gave me a proposition. Marry him or lose my life.
Desperate times call for desperate measures. I’ve learned to do what’s necessary to survive in this world, and that includes marrying a mobster. Regardless of what he might say, it’s only temporary.
It’s not like I’m going to sleep with him. Or fall for him.
Because that would be stupid, right?

Mobster Romance. Conor is a book part of a series called Boston Underground. This is the sixth book in the series, but it can be read as a standalone. While it might refer to things that happened in the previous books, it did not affect my enjoyment of the book. This book has everything you could want in a mobster novel. There is action, gore, romance, and a sexy alpha.
The plot of this book intrigued me. This story is about two characters who are leading separate lives. When an event occurs that requires them to cross paths, insanity ensues. I really liked the way the author wrote this plot. While the characters were reluctant to trust, they also had some sweet moments.
Ivy is a unique character. She was dealt a raw deal. We don’t know what it is right away, but we can see her desperation and strength. She is a truly inspiring character. Then you have Conor. He has also had a less than spectacular life. He has his own demons he is fighting. I think I liked his character the most.
The heat between these two is there from the very beginning. Add in that situation they find themselves in and it was destined to get hotter and hotter. These two characters can steam up the pages with a single look at one another. The heat was done very well.
I liked the writing style in this story. This book is told from dual point of view. There is the use of flashbacks in the story as well. I liked the pace of the book. I really enjoyed the other characters as well. What I think I liked most about this story is that the author doesn’t shy away from the darker part of the mobster world.
Overall, I enjoyed this story. I liked the characters, heat, and plot. I cannot wait to go back and read the other books in this series. I would recommend this book to others, but also caution that there are some serious and gruesome scenes in this book. If you don’t like that, then this might not be the book for you.
Writing Style: 5/5
A. Zavarelli is a book junkie, cat lover, and traveler when plagued by intense cases of wanderlust. She likes all things chocolate, books that come with warnings, and putting her characters through hell.
Her tales have been known to flirt with darkness and sometimes court it unabashedly altogether. Revenge themes and tortured souls are her favorites to write and this gives her an excuse to watch bizarre and twisted documentaries in her spare time.
She is slightly obsessed with Theo James and funny animal memes. If you don’t mind these things, you should add her on facebook.
