Publisher's Summary

His family killed my brother, so I stole his bride....

I was there to murder her father, but then I saw her walking down the aisle.

She’s been my secret obsession for too long. The sinfully beautiful Calabresi princess.

Sloan was the perfect payment for their crimes.

Now she’s mine.

Mine to claim.

Mine to possess.

Mine to destroy.

Her fiancé is still hunting for us, but his bride might not be so innocent by the time he tracks her down.

I’m lining her family up like dominoes. And she’ll be the first to fall.

Unless I fall prey to temptation and decide to keep her for myself.

Rocco and Sloan’s story is a stand-alone enemies-to-lovers dark romance with a HEA and no cliff-hanger. It contains heat, passion and explosive steamy scenes for listeners who enjoy mature content.

Loved it!

I feel like this was the perfect mix of sweet & dark. Rocco was intense and sometimes gave proper psycho vibes. Sloan was an absolute badass! I love a strong heroine and she did not disappoint. She fought hard for her freedom in more ways then one the entire book.

My only complaint is that I found Rocco’s POV contradictory to the things he said to Sloan in her POV. Some things he said just didn’t add up to his actions and I’m still trying to figure out if he really meant everything he said to her or was it part of the bet? Maybe I’m overthinking it though. The book is read from 3 POV’s as we hear several times from Nikolai but I wouldn’t call it a love triangle at all.

Over all I really enjoyed this book and absolutely loved the ending. A swoon worthy happily ever after for sure!

Great story and HEA ending

I really enjoy books by Caroline Peckham ans Suzanne Valenti! Beautiful Carnage is Rocko and Sloane's story. it's filled with secrets, betrayl, hate and love!! The journey is worth while if you listen!! I love Bridget and Jake Bordeaux's narration!! They both do a fantastic job! I really enjoyed how they brought the characters to live for me!! Again and excellent audiobook!!

Sloan and Rocco

This was an OK mafia book. Sloan was kidnapped on her wedding day by a rival mafia family. I found Sloan to be very annoying but I cannot fault her for trying to get out of her situation. Her little dog was absolutely adorable in trying to find her. The book dragged for me in the middle, but the last quarter of the book was great. Bridget Bordeaux did an OK job with the narration; however, I did not care for Jake Bordeaux's narration. It seemed like he was trying too hard to have that mafia inflection in his voice.

Don’t get this

The audiobook is all over the place. It’s like pieces are missing and nothing is cohesive.

OTT

1 “it was a near thing but I managed with great effort not to die of boredom” star

Audible version. Narration was well done considering what they had to work with. If this was a screenplay it would be right in line with the overacted telenovelas.

Save your credit.

Good Read

This story definitely had a twist at the end that was a great surprise. However, I felt like dragged on getting to the romance. I did like how when they spoke in Italian it was translated for those who aren’t familiar with the language.

OK Mafia Book

I love some of the other books this author pair has released, but this one was just ok; the mob cliches were just too overdone. Still, the right narrators could have made the audio experience SO much better. These narrators are quite good in other books I've listened to, but in this one they just couldn't bring the characters to light, particularly the male narrator. The Italian brothers should have sounded dark and dangerous and sexy as sin. Instead, they sounded like middle management, mouth-breathing street toughs. This was not a satisfying listen.

Funny and cute story

Main character gave the woman dog food for dinner the first night and in the middle of being kidnapped she was lkke "Wheres the dog?" I don't know why that was so funny.

Series

I wished that the cover had the sign stating that this was the first book in a series. The story was easy to follow but the end felt rushed and had me wondering what happened between the scene at the river to Sloan giving birth a whooping 9 months later. It really sucks that I have to wait for the next book whenever that will be😤

absolutely loved this

When I started reading this book I was not sure what to expect. But I should have known better, because when it comes to these two ladies all bets are off. Picture a mob version of Romeo and Juliet with a twist and you are close.
This book will leave you breathless, gasping and wanting more. You will not be able to put it down. Yes, Rocco is not a nice guy.... he tells you that himself but there's still something buried under all that draws you to him. And Sloan has been in gilded cage her entire life just waiting for someone to set her free.
The storyline is incredibly intense and will draw you in from beginning to end. Another amazing story ladies
the narrators do an amazing job with this book and with the characters
