Scarlett, When going to war there are three very simple rules one must abide by.
1. Know the enemy.
2 Be prepared to sacrifice.
3. Always wear good shoes.
After all revenge is a dish best served in stilettos. I’ve got an eye for it. and nothing’s going to stand in my way.
Not even Rory ‘The Saint’ Brodrick.
He’s a fool if he thinks he can change me. By the time I’m through with him, I’ll make his mafia look like child’s play.
Cross me, Mr. Brodrick?
You better cross your heart and hope to die.
I’m a fighter. A hustler. A mobster.
I’ve seen a few things in my day.
But I’ve never encountered anything like her.
She’s a beauty with a beast of a heart. The poison apple I just can’t resist. And in her trail she leaves a wake of men crawling on their knees.
What she doesn’t know is that I like my women wild.
It only makes it that much more fun to tame them
A. Zavarelli has done it yet again. Saint (Boston Underground #4) was EVERYTHING!
I’m going to try to hold myself back from gushing endlessly about my love for this book and this series in general, but it’s going to be hard. One thing I am going to allow myself to go on about for a minute though is the main characters of this story, Scarlett and Rory. I absolutely adore them! They are going down as one of my favorite couples of all time!
Scarlett is a heroine I’ll never forget. She’s crazy, badass, and breathtakingly beautiful. What I admire most about her is her strength. The horrors she endured in her past made my heart absolutely ache for her. I understood why she pushed Rory away the way she did. If someone you loved and knew your whole life did something that horrific to you, I promise you that you would have a hell of a lot of issues as a result. It would be a wonder if you allowed anyone to get close to you ever again. Scarlett is nothing if not insanely brave. Because of that, I knew she would come around eventually, and when she did, I was so damn proud of her.
Rory was perfect for Scarlett in every way. Did I tell you how much I love him? I’m head over heels for this one, y’all! He is a total alpha male, but secure enough in himself to have a strong, alpha female by his side. Rory never treats Scarlett like she’s less than. He honors and respects her as an equal, and I fucking loved it! I also loved that he was prepared to kill for Scarlett without batting an eye, and he did. More than once.
Rory is mafia, and despite that, I can’t say he’s a bad guy. A man with a heart that big can’t be. It’s what endeared him to me the most. His patience with Scarlett was commendable. The love and understanding he showed her was touching, and the soft spot he has for women and children made me swoon. When I say he gave Lachlan a run for his money, I mean it. If you know me, you know Lachlan is one of my favorite book boyfriends, so that’s extremely high praise.Saint exceeded my expectations in every way! The story was gritty, entertaining, violent, and full of action. The romance was heartwarming and hot, and the characters were complex. Mafia romance fans, you can’t go wrong with Saint or the Boston Underworld series as a whole. I recommend this one to you!
