An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart.
I had a plan.
Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right?
Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door.
That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset. My sob story about needing a job? Yeah, he wasn't buying that either.
Too bad for him, I won't let anyone get in the way of my mission.
Who cares if we have some kind of crazy chemistry? He's the worst kind of wrong - and I would never in a million years be with a guy like him.
Because they took her from me, and I'm going to make them pay.

I would 100% recommend this audio book. The mobster angle had me on the edge of my seat all through the story.
to many to pin point one
no but after this one book i am a big fan... Tracy was amazing with her accents, normally a book like this needs a male narrator but Tracey did an amazing job with an irish accent.
You won't regret this audio book
Wow loved it. so need to read #2 although it wasnt a cliff hanger. great characters loved the differeny storyline and the narration was great.
I live in the outback Australia and so love to listen to a good raunchy kickass story where the female is tall strong and in total control.
Wow what a great story, strong characters, Tracy Marks did a great job with the Narration. A love story filled with gun carrying Irish mobsters & Russian mafia. Also plenty of hot sexual action. A strong female fighting her way to find the truth while slowly losing herself to Crow and all he stands for. Love is strong and it wins in the end.
I really enjoyed this book great story line, and it kept you guessing till the very end. Thought the narrator did a great job even with the Irish accents . Looking forward to the next book in this series.
Thrilling, compelling and addictive are just some words to describe this book, it's a fresh look on the mafias in the USA that doesn't involved an Italian but hot sexy Irishman with oh so sexy accents to boot :P our heroine is feisty but she did pisses me off when she let Sean pulls her into his lap and thinks she can get info on Thalia from him in front of all the other mobsters, gods how stupid can she be bloody idiot. Anyway Full marks for the narrative pun intended hehe Tracy Marks is amazing, she can jump from a man's voice to a female voice with no problem and it's believable wow she is great. Thank you xox
OK, this novel is obviously aimed at young female readers. The plot is implausible, unconvincing, the sex is laboured to death, and the protagonists lack depth of character. It will appeal to an adolescent audience. The narrator does credit to an otherwise mediocre work.
Yes I certainly have, Tracy Marks's performance is this book was outstanding maybe my favorite to date.
She is one of a very few female narrators that does not only a brilliant male voice, but accent. Her Boston accent was flawless, and her Irish accent was to die for.
Loved this whole story, and I think I loved it even more due to Tracy's performance. On to The Reaper, can't wait.
"This Will Burn So Good"
So hot, it might burn! The Boston Underground is a steamy, sexy and dark mafia romance series that makes bad guys seem almost good... or at least, incredibly alpha males that will make you swoon. Oh, and definitely listen to this series - the narrators are amazing and enhance the story.
"An Edgy, Intense, Gripping Five Star Romance!"
Wow, I loved this story, and have so many great things to say about Crow which was written by A. Zavarelli and narrated by Tracy Marks. This story deserves all Five Stars, and if it was possible to give more stars, I would.
~ Crow has an edgy and intense plot told from both Mac and Lachlan's POV's. The story moves at a great pace, and has all kinds of twists. Mac goes in "unofficially" uncover to get information about her missing friend where she meets one of the leaders Crow Lachlan; however, she soon learns once you enter the mafia, you do not leave unless you go out in a body bag or if they will allow it.
~ The attractions between Lachlan and Mac was immediate, raw, intense, and they were drawn to each other like a moth to a flame. Regardless of the secretes or mistrust between them, the sex scenes were primal, raw, and full of need. Lachlan dominated while Mac wanted to please.
~ I could feel my anxiety building waiting for the moment when Lachlan learns of Mac's betray, and really wanted to take few breaks throughout the story from all the intensity but was helpless and had to keep listening.
~ There is great character development throughout the story, and you got to know some of the characters and what they have been through.
~ The narrations by Tracy Marks is remarkable, and you could tell she put a lot of effort into narrating this story. I loved the accents and how each character had their own voice. She did a great job of projecting the different emotions throughout the story.
I've never been big fan of contemporary romances; however, this story was amazing, really held my attention, and could just possibly sway to the contemporary side. I highly recommend this story to fan of contemporary stories and likes them slightly on the darker side or with a mafia themes. Well worth my time! :-).

"Love....Against All Odds. 💕"
This book has so much going for it.....an interesting deep plot, likable characters, bad guys, action, suspense, love, and mystery. It's the kind of book that keeps you on the edge. You never know what to expect. It's a true "escape". The kind of story that you know would never be personally real but you enjoy the diversion. 😀 Loved the ending. 💑
Just my two cents: I truly enjoyed this book but I would have loved to learn a bit more of both Mack's and Lach's past. Some basic information was there....I just would have liked more details. Call me a romantic....but I still enjoy stories that have more romance than sex. I know...I know...you're going to say "this is a Mob story"....yes, I know and I would expect some sex, but when there is so much explicit sex in a book it can take away a lot of the sensual build up....the anticipation. But...dont let what I've said detur you especially if you enjoy a well written story filled with suspense and the rawness of gangsters 😬. Yes. I will definitely be on the lookout for more in this series. 😉
The narration was perfect. Each voice was unique and the accents were quite good. Doesn't get much better. Great job! 🐾
(Note: This book has explicit sex and strong language. Adults only recommended)

"SIZZLING HOT - MOB ROMANCE DONE RIGHT!"
I've found a new TOP Author! Ashleigh Zavarelli spins a deep story full of visual and conversational support. I know and love the characters. I see and understand the world in which they live. I can't wait for the next listen!
It's that little twist of fate that collided the worlds of Crow and Mac. A collision that teetered on the edge of ruin for both. Neither wanting it but neither could stop it. Ooooo... very juicy.

"Great Book, AWESOME Narration!"
This book was hard to rate because I loved so much of it but In between that I found it dragged a little too. It wasn't a lot but there were a few parts in the beginning that I wondered if it was going to pick up and go anywhere. There we also a few "out there" things that I just couldn't find believable. In the end I decided I enjoyed all the other stuff so much more than I disliked those few little things. This book has it all from danger to love and a super hot sexy couple with secrets! The narrator Tracy Marks was great, I love her voice and enjoyed her accents in this book.
"Wow!!! Just Amazing! One Of The Best!"
This audiobook truly deserves over 5 stars! The author created an amazing story! I could not put it down. I was on the edge of my seat and what an amazing Rollercoaster ride it was! I was supposed to go to bed early last night! So much for that!
It has everything I look for in a book: action, danger, intrigue, suspense, drama, and romance! It is written in a Dual POV which I prefer. To top it off it also has A HEA ending! I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. Definitely a credit worthy audiobook!!!
The narrator did a great job bringing the story to life. I felt like she nailed the accents! The characters are well developed and you get to know Mack & Lachlan well.

Crown is the man after my own heart. I like the fact that he is no nonsense and will do anything to protect what's his.
When Crow had his men line up the bad guys against the wall and started to shoot them one at a time for is women.
This was my first time listening to Tracy Marks and i have to say i was very impressed
Ronan!!! and i cant wait to find out more bout him in the next book.
I really enjoyed this book, i was kept on the edge of my seat until the very end. Highly recommended!!
"What a story!"
This is such an engrossing tale with very deep characters. I must admit some parts were a bit difficult to listen to given the subject matter but so glad I listened since this was just the second book by this author for me. I was so intrigued that I listened in one sitting. I'll definitely look for more books by this author.
"Crow Boston Underworld Book 1"
I would totally recommend this audiobook to a friend and I have many times. Crow was an incredible read but the narration really brought life to the characters and their story.
I'm not sure I can compare Crow to another book. I loved everything about this book and often find myself uses Crow as my standard for comparison.
What I liked most about Tracy Mark's performance was her ability to give each character their own voice. The story was easy to get lost in with the natural lull and cadence of her voice.
Best Book Ever
When I started this book I had a hard job getting into it I got close to tossing it, but stayed with it and was really pleased that I did good unexpected story , with lots of twists and turns will look forward to future books in series. Whilst the narrator did a super job my personal point of view would be to have a female and male narrator as Lachlan is a very strong role
