Publisher's Summary

She’ll never be mine. But I can’t stop thinking about her, dreaming about her, picturing what our lives could have been. The mafia got in the way for both of us. Some things, though, are destined. No matter how much we change, we’re still the same stupid kids who fell for each other before reality tore us apart. 

I tell myself she’ll never be mine, but even I can see through the lie. She’s been mine since our first kiss all those years ago. I had to let her go then. And for years I thought she’d turned her back on me. I was wrong. 

Now I’ve been hired to be her bodyguard until she’s wed to a mafia prince. If I don’t get her to the altar, they’ll kill me. But the moment I see her, I realize if she marries another, I’ll be dead in all the ways that matter. Keeping her for myself will start a war. Then again, bloodshed just happens to be my specialty. 

Note: This novel was previously titled The Butcher.

Love this series

Okay, I love to read/listen to full series. The learning about all the different characters and falling in love right along with them. I still have to say the first book about Conrad is still my favorite.💗

Not what I was expecting

This book had some twists and turns and kept me guessing. The timeline threw me considering this is the 3rd book in the series. In order to figure out where the story was at I actually went to the epilogue after the 12th chapter... please note I never do this, but I had no idea where the storyline was at with the other two books. Great concept excellent narration!

Loved it!

I loved listening to THE BUTCHER. Its sexy with great narration and alpha maleness all over the place! al.This one goes through some years of being together, being apart and then getting back together again. Very emotional. There's some violence, steamy sex, mafia, and a badass female (Angel) who I loved listening to. I love all of C. Aaron's books and I hope the next one is about Con. Can't wait to hear his story!

The Butcher!

So my last review I said that Nate was the best of the series. I have changed my mind David is the best of the series. I love “the Butcher” David and Angel. So many things against them it seemed. They they said star crossed lovers. I do think this one should have been first in the series but at the same time it gave me that Ahhh moment. Loved it

Awesome!!!!!

I loved this book couldn't put it down. At age sixteen David Raven finally got the nerve to approach the girl he's been watching for a while Angel, but after when David takes her home both their lives change. After five years of not knowing anything about Angel, David starts working for an organization that his younger brother James works for. David's first assignment is to protect the daughter from another family, but when he sees who it is he's in shock. Angel is going to be married off to Lorenzo Salvador, but Angel doesn't want anything to do with him. After the second attempt on Angels life David doesn't want her out of his sight. When David finds out that Lorenzo wants to spent time alone with Angel he and James and two others make a plan to take her.

I Liked It, Read 2nd

It was a pretty good story but seems like it should have been before Nate in the book series. But the narration was good as well.

The best in the series

This was a true love story! It was long, not so much in length but in time covered, but it was worth the read. 💞

Loved it

This was the best book in this amazing series! So much heartbreak and separation Angel and David kept true to their hearts. I know it’s probably the most unrealistic thing but it spoke to my romantic wishful heart. I hope this isn’t the end of this series a I’m not read for the end. Both narrators did an amazing job being this to life. #AudiobookObsessionsReviewer #CristinasAudiobookObessions
