THE BORDER by Don Winslow, narrated by Ray Porter
The Border - Don Winslow,Ray Porter

 

THE BORDER is the last book in the POWER OF THE DOG trilogy.

 

All I can say is WOW. It was everything I hoped for and more. Brutal criminals, sometimes even more brutal law enforcement, international drug wars, politics, and the absolutely fabulous Ray Porter relating it all in that powerful voice of his.

 

At this point I feel like Don Winslow and Ray Porter are a part of my life. I've spent dozens of hours with them both and to be honest? I'm going to miss them.

 

Does Art Keller finally get somewhere in the drug war he's fought his entire life? Will he get to settle down and live a quiet life with Marisol? What about Eddie Ruiz? Callen and Nora? Hell, will any of them even survive? I recommend you read this ASAP so you can find out!

 

Winslow delivered the goods here and Ray Porter performed the hell out of it.

 

My highest recommendation!

SYNOPSIS:

A shadow meets the light …
When someone needs to disappear, the Chicago mob calls on Joe Rossi. A man who can move without a sound, and kill without a word, they don’t call him the Shadow for nothing.
This time, it’s a New York crime family in need of his skills, but it takes one glimpse of her to make him agree to the job.
Liliana Marcello is every inch a principessa della mafia. Her life has taught her to be wary of strangers, yet her ballet career contradicts everything by putting her on display.
It’s a man with a dark smile and a constantly changing demeanor that makes her feel safe again, but it’s the unknown that holds her back.
It takes one look … One dance … One word … One smile to captivate a man.
And one second to kill a woman because of it, too.
Not all monsters hide in the shadows. How are you supposed to see them coming?

Let's start off by saying that this is a new author for us and we are really enjoying her stories.

I really enjoyed this tale it was griping suspenseful and a really great love story.I have to say I really loved the main characters Joe and Liliana were complete opposites yet fit each other so well.One thing they do have in common is that they are are both from powerful crime families.


Liliana's career as a ballet dancer keeps her very busy which keeps her away from the family business although she is not naive about her father and brother's she is not privy to how they conduct their business and I really feel she doesn't really know just how powerful and dangerous they really are.


Liliana and Joe form and instant connection he to is from a Mafia family based in Chicago.This story reminded me a little bit of the story Beauty and the Beast.


I loved the chemistry and the connection that was their between these to as they made a cute couple their courtship was somewhat of a train wreck waiting to happen yet ,they were super sexy and hot together when they came together for some hot and dirty sex. lol Joe is keeping secrets their entire courtship first because it was family business and then to protect her.How do your court the girl you are crazy about without her realizing in actuality you are guarding her and not just a job ?


I have to say that I haven't really read a lot of the Mafia romance gene but, I have to say that the story kept me interested and turning the pages until the very end.The story had a great cast of characters and some twists and turns and a few surprises.


I loved both Liliana and Joe from the onset of the story but, Joe became my favorite character this time around.Joe just kept surprising me at every turn because he kept doing things out of his comfort zone and out of character for him and also kept straying from the plan and then gets involved with finding out more about the job he was hired to do things he never ever does.The cool and collected man is everything but, as Liliana has him totally off his game. Lol 

"Grinning"

Overall we enjoyed this story as I found the characters to be love-able,intriguing,mysterious and that it had just the right amount of drama and suspense .I also loved the author style of writing and would love to read more books by her and will have to start with one of her mafia series for sure.


We loved it !

Soon, she finds herself immersed in his sexy and dangerous world and she's not sure she wants to go back to her old life...

What is something unique/quirky about you?

 

I write film and tv screenplays on top of romance novels.

A fun fact is that my book is based off my first screenplay I wrote ten years ago.

review 2018-11-13 10:27
Jetzt werde ich doch noch sentimental
Chicagoland Vampires: Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht - Marcel Aubron-Bülles,Chloe Neill

Ich habe ernstlich überlegt, mich zum Abschluss der „Chicagoland Vampires“-Reihe mit einem T-Shirt zu belohnen. Auf ihrer Website hat Chloe Neill einen Shop eingerichtet, in dem Merch aller Couleur angeboten wird. Leider ist nichts, aber auch gar nichts dabei, was mir gefällt. Nicht einmal Catchers Spruch-T-Shirts überzeugen mich. Schade. Ich hätte all die Jahre der Treue gern ausgezeichnet. Dann werde ich das Finale wohl still für mich feiern. Aber bis dahin ist es sowieso noch ein bisschen hin, denn erst einmal steht jetzt die Rezension zum vorletzten Band „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ an.

 

Haus Cadogan versetzte dem Zirkel einen schweren Schlag. Ethan und Merit vereitelten die Pläne der kriminellen Organisation, doch ihr Oberhaupt Adrien Reed wird nicht eher ruhen, bis er ganz Chicago unter seine Kontrolle gebracht und Rache an den Vampiren geübt hat, die sich ihm entgegenstellten. Als das Paar die Leiche eines Gestaltwandlers nahe Wrigley Field entdeckt, der von einem unbekannten Vampir ermordet wurde, ahnen sie, dass Reed seine Finger im Spiel hat. Neben dem Getöteten sind seltsame Symbole an eine Wand gezeichnet. Es scheint sich um eine alchemistische Gleichung zu handeln, aber ihre Bedeutung bleibt rätselhaft, obwohl Ethan, Merit, Mallory und Catcher alles daransetzen, sie zu entschlüsseln. Bald tauchen die Symbole überall in Chicago auf. Würde Reed tatsächlich einen Krieg unter den Übernatürlichen Chicagos riskieren, um zu bekommen, was er will? Würde er magische Energien entfesseln, die er unmöglich beherrschen kann?

 

Meine Güte, jetzt werde ich auf meine alten Tage wohl doch noch sentimental. Wer hätte das gedacht? Ich mochte „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ viel mehr, als ich erwartet hatte. Tatsächlich war ich überrascht, wie gut mir dieser zwölfte Band gefiel. Ich wollte ihn gar nicht mehr aus der Hand legen und war wirklich gefesselt. Emotional erinnerte er mich sehr an die frühen Bände der „Chicagoland Vampires“, was die Augenblicke melancholischer Wehmut natürlich verstärkte. Jetzt ist es bald vorbei. Schnüff. Ja, ich gebe zu, trotz aller Kritik an Chloe Neill und der Entwicklung, die die Reihe genommen hat, muss ich mir ein metaphorisches Tränchen verdrücken. Eine Ära endet (demnächst). Ich weiß noch, wie ich mir mit dem ersten Band „Frisch gebissen“ die Nacht um die Ohren geschlagen habe. Ach was war es schön. Gut, hier soll es aber nicht um Nostalgie gehen, sondern um „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“. Ich denke, ich mochte das Buch deshalb so sehr, weil alle liebgewonnenen Figuren endlich wieder aktiv zusammenarbeiten und am selben Strang ziehen. Nach den dramatischen, einschneidenden Erlebnissen der vergangenen Bände sind sie endlich wieder ein Team, besonders Merit, Ethan, Mallory und Catcher. Es war toll, sie gemeinsam gegen einen Feind antreten zu sehen. Merit erhält trotzdem eine Sonderrolle, denn sie wird brutal mit ihrer jüngsten Vergangenheit konfrontiert – ein cleverer Schachzug, der die übergreifende Handlung rund erscheinen lässt, obwohl ich bezweifle, dass dieser von Beginn an geplant war. Langfristige Abläufe sind meiner Ansicht nach nicht Chloe Neills Stärke; ich kann mir nicht vorstellen, dass sie eine Idee dieser Größenordnung geduldig mit sich herumtrug, ohne unmissverständliche Andeutungen fallen zu lassen. Dazu fehlt ihr die nötige Subtilität. Deshalb bin ich sicher, dass Annabelle, eine neue Figur, die sie in „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ vorstellt, eine Rolle in der Familienplanung von Ethan und Merit spielen wird. Sie ist eine schwangere Nekromantin. Schwanger. Nekromantin. Das schreit ja geradezu nach einem Zusammenhang mit der Prophezeiung, laut der „Methan“ als erstes Vampirpärchen der Historie ein Kind bekommen werden. Wozu sonst sollte Neill so spät die Besetzung erweitern? Erstmal hilft Annabelle unserem Powerpaar bei den Ermittlungen zu den alchemistischen Symbolen, die überall in Chicago auftauchen. Die Idee, Alchemie in das magische Potpourri der Reihe aufzunehmen, verdient Applaus, doch leider involvierte Neill mir zu wenig Details. Die Alchemie ist eine komplizierte und umständliche Kunst. Sie erklärt nicht, wieso sich überhaupt ein_e Hexe_r auf diese Richtung spezialisieren sollte. Welche Vorteile bietet sie gegenüber anderen Magieformen? Die Verbindung der Symbole mit dem Gangsterboss Adrien Reed ist kein Geheimnis, die Herausforderung besteht darin, herauszufinden, was er plant. Ich fand es schade, dass Neill in „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ ausschließlich Reed fokussierte, statt den Zirkel als kriminelle Organisation richtig in die Handlung einzuarbeiten. Dadurch erschien das Ganze als 1-Mann-Unternehmen und erinnerte kaum noch an die Mafia. Adieu, organisiertes Verbrechen. Dennoch ist es mir hundert Mal lieber, dass sie sich auf die Handlungsaspekte konzentriert, die ihr liegen, statt irgendwas zu versuchen und dann zu scheitern. Letztendlich war es mir auch egal, wer nun als Bösewicht herhalten muss – die Hauptsache war, dass ich Freude mit diesem Band hatte.

 

Vielleicht sehe ich „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ durch die rosa Rückblicksbrille. Mir ist bewusst, dass ich ein bisschen nostalgisch bin, weil sich „Chicagoland Vampires“ dem Ende nähert. Mag sein, dass das mein Urteilsvermögen beeinflusst. Aber sind wir ehrlich: ist das wichtig? Spielt es eine Rolle, warum ich Spaß mit der Lektüre des zwölften Bandes hatte? Ich denke nicht. „Wie ein Biss in dunkler Nacht“ ist reine Unterhaltungsliteratur und diesen Job hat das Buch hervorragend erfüllt. Ich habe mich nicht einmal besonders an den schmalzigen Liebesschwüren zwischen Ethan und Merit gestört. Klar, das ist alles unfassbar kitschig, doch ich konnte diesen Part problemlos ignorieren. Etwas Glück wünsche ich den beiden ja auch. Deshalb freue ich mich wirklich auf das Finale „Ein Biss von dir“, für das ich mich emotional wohl lieber wappne. Sonst wird aus dem metaphorischen Tränchen am Ende noch ein echtes.

I’ve been sold by my own father to a beast.
 
Gleb Sokolov is the definition of a savage.
He’s an animal in bed and everywhere else.
A notorious Russian mobster, badass personified.
 
And my father just sold me to him, to pay off a debt.
 
But there’s something Gleb doesn’t know… we have a son,
and I’ll do anything to keep him from finding out.
 
Eva Petrenko.
Sassy, secretive, trouble with a capital T.
She drives me fucking insane.
Except, when her father offers her to me, I find I can’t resist.
She belongs with me, even if she refuses to believe it.
Eva hates me, but I’ll go to the ends of the earth to protect her.
Problem is, Eva’s father isn’t the only one with debts…
and mine are the kind I’ll need to pay with my own blood.
 
 
 
This was an enjoyable read.I enjoy this author's stories so always looking forward to her releases.
 
I enjoyed the story plot and enjoyed most of the characters but, I will have to say that Eva's parents not at all and If I was her would have written them off but, she had such a generous heart it was not in her to do so.
 
I always pick a favorite character and mine is going to be Gleb and that is because he was willing to sacrifice so much for those he loved but also give up the only life he has known to protect them as well as love them.I found Gleb to be brass,conceded but underneath all the dark and dangerous he had a heart as well as a conscience.I also loved that he even had limits that he wouldn't cross.I felt  bad and even sad at the fact he was constantly waring with himself and what was best for Eva and his son.
 
Eva what to say other than she was a sweetheart.I loved that she had a bit of feisty-ness to her as well and a backbone too.I loved how protective she was of her son.I loved how patient she was with Gleb as he continued to work through all these new emotions that she stirred up in him.
 
The story flowed nicely and had a bit of suspense and also about a second chance at the life you would have chosen not the one your were dealt but, had the courage to make the change even if it killed her.
 
I enjoyed the romance between this couple and as the story played out they had quite a few sexy scene's but, my only complaint would be I felt that this couple  never connected on a intimate level (meaning I never felt the love between them even knowing they loved one another) maybe it was just the fact that Gleb guarded his heart and emotions fiercely to the very end and just finally realizing really what he had to lose and let us see what was beneath the surface.
 
Overall the story was good from beginning to end.Was I wowed this time around  ? "no" but ,it was a nice enjoyable read to pass the time.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Without warning, my head starts to spin. Shit, I shouldn’t have drunk that cocktail so fast. I can’t see any signs indicating the bathroom. Maybe I can escape for a few minutes behind one of these doors? I’m not that desperate to pee, just need somewhere peaceful to sit and wait for my brain to clear.
I step into an office unlike any I’ve been in before. Ritzy, with an executive desk in the center that’s the size of my bed at home. My eyes are immediately drawn to a stack of banknotes on top of the shiny surface. I tiptoe across the room.
Wow, it’s a pile of one-hundred-dollar bills.
I pick one up to examine it.
Surely these can’t be real?
“What the fuck are you doing in here?” a baritone voice booms.
The air around me compresses, and I spin around.
A man in a tux is standing in the doorway, piercing blue eyes glowering at me. He’s so big his shoulders nearly meet the doorjambs.
And he’s drawn a fucking gun on me!
“I was looking for the bathroom.” I drop the money back onto the table, my heartbeat thudding in my ears.
Blue Eyes paces up to me, holsters his firearm and grabs my wrist. “Who sent you to snoop?” His English is good, but I detect a familiar intonation. “Was it Vadim Rayt?” he adds.
“No one sent me,” I blurt out in Russian. “I’m telling the truth.”
I try to squirm out of Blue Eyes’ hold, but he pulls me against his rock-hard chest, towering above me and invading my senses with his spicy sandalwood cologne.
“Let me go.” I struggle and aim a kick at his shin.
His laugh is scornful. “Not before you give me a better explanation.”
I bite my bottom lip, trying to come up with something. “I just needed some time out.”
“Time out? You’ve got to be kidding. The only women who come in here on their own are hookers. High-class hookers who bribe the doorman.” His gaze roves over my body. “Either you’re a whore or a spy. Which one is it?”
An idea occurs to me. How I can get out of this situation. “I’m a hooker,” my voice purrs.
I can’t believe the words coming out of my mouth. I’ve never been so blatant… like ever. But desperate times call for desperate measures. Once I’ve gotten his pants down around his legs I’ll make a run for it. I reach for his belt buckle with my free hand.
With a groan he lets go my wrist and pushes me to my knees. “You better be good.”
I’ve never given a blow-job in my life. It wasn’t something I felt I could offer my ex, the only boyfriend I’ve ever had.
But I’m not gonna suck Blue Eyes off, am I?
This is only a means to an end.
I pull down his suit pants, and he releases his monster cock himself. Oh. My. God. There’s a ring-style piercing at the tip. Is that what they call a Prince Albert? I stare at it, fascinated.
“Like what you see, Kotenok?”
Somehow, I don’t mind being called kitten by him.
Mistake, Eva.
Big mistake.
Focus on the task at hand… You need to get out of here.
I jump to my feet and prepare to run.
But he grabs me by the hair, yanking me against him. “Oh, yes, you are good, little slut. But not as good as you think you are. Time you learned a lesson.”
He steps out of his pants and drags me over to his executive chair.
“What are you doing?” I yelp.
“Punishing you for attempting a fast one. I’m going to spank your ass.”
“And then you’ll let me go.” It’s more a statement than a question.

“One step at a time, Kitten. First, I will punish you… then we negotiate.”
