With two of my favorite authors collaborating on this work, I knew it had to be fantastic! This was a short, fast-paced read, packed full of action. Featuring two rival mob families, abduction and plenty of sex appeal, this first book in the series held my attention from start to finish.

With multiple separate, but related, stories going on at the same time, I was impressed with how easy it was to keep everything straight. We start off with two brothers, Theo and Sal Barbieri, sent by their fathe

Let me just say that Callie and Lili are amazing dark romance authors on their own and put them together, you're gonna expect some really dark and messed up stuffs going on in this read, right? Or maybe a whole lot of violence and blood shedding? Wrong.

This is a luscious story of an underground world.

Hell's Kitchen is the much anticipated collaboration between the crazily good writing minds of Callie Hart and Lili Saint Germain.

Mafiosi brothers Theo & Sal Barbieri have a job to do, they have been tasked by their father Roberto to kidnap Kaitlin, the daughter of his Irish rival Paddy McLaughlin.

Things do not exactly go to plan and we are left with a comical but lethal mix of lust and fast paced action. If you think you have an idea where this book is going, you'd be wrong.

I am so excited to get started. Yeah I probably should have read Gypsy Brothers first. I want to read them all. This time thing or lack thereof is a serious problem. I am starting with series written by both Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain.

Books in Hell’s Kitchen Series should be read in order:

Hell’s Kitchen is a story of two rivalling mafia families. Things heat up right away when the Barbieri boys are instructed to abduct the daughter of their enemy.
”The sins of the father are visited upon the heads of his children.”

Besides the uniqueness of two authors collaborating on a story has viewpoints from all the main characters. Having the voices for that many characters was a new experience for me because in other books I’ve only seen it done in third person.

Holy hell what did I just read?? This story seriously takes on a life of it’s own and I am not sure where things are going, but the start was addicting.

Hell’s Kitchen is set in NYC amongst organized crime and the story begins with us meeting Theo and Sal Barbieri. They are the son’s of Roberto, the mob boss, and the story begins with him telling them they are to kidnap Kaitlin McLaughlin. Kaitlin is the daughter of Roberto’s enemy and known as the Irish princess. Seems easy enough right, well w

may very well be a case of wrong expectations for me. After reading several of both the Gypsy Brothers and Blood & Roses books, I was expecting everything as dark, gritty, and hawt as we got there. Not so much.

The gist of Hell's Kitchen is two mafia families colliding. The Italian mafia family, the Barbieri's, are abducting the daughter of the Irish mafia head, Pappy McLaughlin. Salvatore and Theo are assi

Coming soon! Pre-order links will be available shortly.

Roberto Barbieri is known in the Kitchen by many names: Bobby B. The Barber of Brooklyn. Il Assassino. My brother and I call him Father. No matter what name you call him by, when Roberto Barbieri tells you do something, you do it. No questions asked. And you do not fuck it up.


It all hangs in the balance.

And in this world?

POV: First Person – Multiple

Theo and Sal of the Barbieri clan were tasked by their father to exact revenge by kidnapping the daughter of their rival Irish clan boss. The job was supposed to be simple. Get the girl and bring her back in one piece.

Kaitlin McLaughlin’s kidnapping turned complicated when she had a tough female bodyguard that would do anything to be in good grace of the big boss. One city was certainly not big enough for

The Barbieri brothers have one task, or should I say order, given to them by their father, the king of the east coast Italian mafia. Salvatore and Theo need to get the enemy's Irish daughter, Kaitlin McLaughlin back to their father unscathed. She lives in LA, and will be arriving via plane, on this hot New York morning.

It's too bad that nothing is turning out as planned. As their mark slips through their fingers, the brothers are separated and each end up taking a woman with them to

Hell’s Kitchen reminded me of Gypsy Brothers meets The Santini Brothers and a little Pepper Winters mixture.

Everything had a foreboding kind of feel, tinged in a growing entangled web that kept getting bigger and bigger.

The whole plot structure had a complex stand, integrated with chaotic and dark themes for control and ultimate

Hell’s Kitchen was a witty, action packed book that will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time.

Immediately, on the first page we dive into the dark underbelly of the mafia and we’re introduced to the boss, Roberto Barbieri. He’s Italian and he’s mean, also known as “The Barber of Brooklyn”. Why was he given this nickname? Well he’s got this awesome technique of slitting people’s throats leaving behind a bloody mess ;)! An

Since I'm a big fan of Callie Hart's previous work (can't wait for another Rebel book BTW), I'll definitely read the next book in this series.

But I'll give this book only 3 stars for now because I expected more. Actually no, not more. Maybe less. Because sometimes less is more, right?

Maybe a bit less of comical, unreal situations, a bit less of forced, fake felt badassness... I don't know. Whatever. Too much or not...

And that's what counts, I guess.

As for guys in this book, OMG...

HMPH! I do not even know where to begin. I was confused the whole book. From the 7 POV's (go to Allison ❤Will Never Conquer Her TBR❤'s review for a list of those POV's and a kick-ass review that says everything I felt.) to the plot that never developed, I was left lost and craving for more. I thought this was going to have grit, be dark and a thriller, um, nope!

Lili Saint Germain is renowned for giving her readers raw, gritty, no holds barred stories that delve deep into the world of the criminal underbelly. Whether it's the world of the mafia or the MC, you know that you're going to need to don your big girl panties because the chances are, what you read will make your stomach roll, it will make you flinch and it will make you scared to turn the next page in fear of what you might find.

Disfruté y me divertí mucho con este libro, pero también me decepcionó. Lo único que me hizo darle 4 estrellas fue el humor negro e involuntario de los protagonistas.

La historia comienza con Roberto Barbieri, jefe de la mafia italiana, mandando a sus hijos Sal y Theo a secuestrar a la hija del jefe de la mafia irlandesa.

Roberto fue mi personaje favorito, fue el único al que le creí lo cruel y sanguinario, inclusive con sus hijos.

What just happened to my mind????

I loved every f*cking minute of it. Each chapter could have been it's own book. Callie and Lil wrote their asses off. By far the one of the best damn books of the year. There are 8 POV's and they nailed it. I thought I could tell who wrote what when, but easily lost my way. The prose was so engrossing. I can't go point by point because it was just too good. I love Mafia/MC/Badass boy style sagas. This book does not disappoint.

Ha ha... cute and creepy at the same time huh?

This book was so freaking AMAZING and book 2 still hasn't been released!! I'm angry!!


Honestly, I'm not sure what I imagined or expected when I saw that these two fantastic authors would be collaborating on a new series. I just assumed it would be great. THEY DELIVERED!!

I got to see Zeth and Sloane. I saw Jace and Julz. And how hot were the additions of Sal and Theo Barbieri???
