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.

Disappointed 😞

I was so looking forward to listening to this. The narration was excellent but if you take out the copious sex scenes, there is so little plot, which is unlike this great author.

Wow what a man, wet panties time!

Honestly wasn’t sure about this book but thought I’d try it on Audible, Boy am I glad I did!
Plot lost me a few time had to go back and listen again. Have to say it was worth listening to again and again, the male narrator was amazing!! Just having him as narrator is worth five stars.
The story is good though not a strong on real plot but it is a romance novel so can forgive that, does humour which helps.
The lead way into the second book is a good one I admit, guess I’ll be looking for it next.

love love love this narration

this is one of the best narrations of a book I've heard, the way it's done really brings the book to life and the narrators themselves are fab. I wish they we're all done in this style. a good story with great characters what's not to like. well worth the credit. can't wait for the next book.

U A U!!

I love all of this! the plot, the loose ends that we understand later on, the interconnected characters. It's not just a story about mobsters with a happy ending, it makes us feel and think on the impact we leave on the lives of others.

Wow what a way to start

Wow that’s how I’m starting this.

I listened to this book through audible and it was fantastic. The 3 narrators were incredible and just made it so much more enjoyable to listen to.

This is a rollercoaster of a story, so many twists and turns and things happening that had me screaming in the car (probably looking like a crazy woman) 😂😂 Some I saw coming but others I was like oh sh!t what is going on!

I loved the relationship between Nat and Sloan, the lines they both came out with had my laughing so much, they truly are a best friend duo.

The spice in this book was seriously hot 🥵🥵 and whilst listening to it well that made it even hotter I had to fan myself a time or 2.

Kage’s character was all rough around the edges, a gruff alpha male who I just fell in love with straight away. Even though he was an ass he made me swoon 🖤

This is a dark Mafia MF romance with violence throughout. Please check triggers first before reading.

I honestly was so engrossed with this from the beginning and if you like audio I would highly recommend. I can’t wait to listen to the next book 🖤

excellent start to series

This was my first book by this author I've seen this series recommend a lot on book tube so I thought I'd give it a go. I loved the characters and Natalie's friend Sloane was hilarious. Mafia books aren't something I've read a lot of but I'm hooked.
This was a really great start to the series and the audio was great to listen to. Strong characters and a good story.

Holy Russian Mafia Hotness!

Ruthless Creatures is book one in the Queens and Monsters series and is the story of Natalie and Kage (Kasimir).
Five years have passed since the wedding day Natalie Peterson was supposed to have. The day before the wedding that never was, her fiancé disappeared without a trace. Since that day Natalie has been plagued with questions, why did he leave? Where did he go? Did I do something wrong? Is he alive?
On this fifth anniversary Natalie, as always, prepares to spend the two days wasted with her best friend Sloane, until a stranger (Kage) comes rolling into town and buys the house next door to hers and sends Natalie into a tailspin and completely changes her life.
Kage awakens Natalie’s dormant libido and once she gives in to his touch, it brings out the sexy, temptress side of her. Natalie is fierce, feisty, sassy and strong which is good as the road to HEA is no walk in the park.
Natalie was supposed to be a job, but Kage couldn’t pull the trigger, or stay away from her. Kage Porter is the possessive, dark, dangerous and deadly next-door neighbour who is the king of dirty talk. Jesus, Mary and fecking Joseph that man oozed dirty, filthy sex appeal! From his obsession with Natalie to his panty melting dirty mouth, Kage puts all other men to shame. He is the ultimate domineering alpha, dripping in arrogance and ruthlessness. He knows how to protect what and who mean most to him, but he also knows what a woman needs and oh my god does he give Natalie everything she needs and so much more. The man is insatiable, and he certainly brings out the naughty side of good girl Natalie.
This audiobook was narrated by Troy Duran, Brooke Daniels and Michelle Sparks. Troy’s deep, raspy, growly voice was perfect to portray Bratva kingpin Kage. Brooke’s performance as Nat was simply brilliant and Michelle taking on free spirit Sloane was amazing; I can’t wait to hear more when I listen to Sloane’s story in Carnal Urges.
The duet style dual POV narration was incredibly perfect for this romantic suspense which is super-hot and sexy, filled with mystery, twists and turns, dead bodies and hilarious witty banter.
 
I loved Nat and Kage’s story, it had everything I love in a romance book. I loved, laughed, swooned and found myself wanting more. 
My favourite quote of the book
“You were born to be my Queen. You don’t kneel for anyone but me. And I f**king worship you for it.”

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.

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.
