I’m not a good man, but I’m damn good at what I do.

I was raised to be ruthless, and as muscle for the Petrov mafia, that’s all I am.

Then she got caught in the crossfire, and when it was over, she was mine - given as a temporary gift. Once a mafia princess, now just a bargaining chip, she wasn’t a part of my plans.

If I take myself out of the equation and just review base on the author's writing, storyline and romance its a five star read. Good Girl is fast paced and the characters are well developed.

Willow Winters is a relative new author to me. This is only the third book I have read of hers. I have to say that she really had done a great job with Vatelli crime family. I have read and loved all three books and the good thing is each book just gets better and better. To me that shows the sign of a very good series. I will have to say that this one, “Good Girl” really touched me in a way that the other two did not. I actually cried reading this one. I think it is because of my studies in the ...more

Whatever. I really liked the pace in this particular short smut story. It wasn't so much about the sexy times but more about love, more about wanting to get better for your significant other.

This book is my favorite so far out of this series. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, because I don't like hearing of such horrible things happening to women. The more I read on the more I fell in love with Kane and Ava's story.

I was lucky again to receive an ARC of this book from Willow Winters. She is fast becoming one of my favorite authors, her writing is inspiring and her imagination is delightful. I love Mafia books they are my favorite sub genre and Willow knocks it out of the park every time.

*****Be My Good Girl Stars*****

After reading and thoroughly loving Willow Winter's His Hostage, I had high expectations for this one! Ms. Winters exceeded those expectations with a dark, dirty and sexy read. Kane and Ava's story deals with some very dark elements such as human trafficking and rape, but it is written with class and compassion. Now to backtrack and read the first Valetti Crime Family, Dirty Dom!

*****I was gifted an ARC by the author in exchange for an honest review*****

I'm officially in a mob romance kind of mood. This is the 2nd one I've read today and I read it all in one sitting.

This was super sad in parts but it had a fantastic happily ever after so it balanced out the misery in the beginning.

Apparently I'm really into romances where the hero is a ruthless, cold hearted killer but is super sweet and protective when it comes to the heroine.

Willow Winters gets 5 thank God it had a happy ending stars.

If you are a fan of dark romance with violence, abuse, heart break, revenge, suspense, deception, corruption, and a filthy-talking possessive bad boy who will do whatever it takes to get the woman he wants... then Good Girl is the book for you. A page turner from the very first page to the very end.

I was given a courtesy copy for an honest review.

That's right I'm back to read another mafia book and I so happy.

After that she was used as a human toy being raped and beaten to submit to those guys dark desires. All the time the abuse endured she sworn vengeance to every single one of them. When she sees the enigmatic Kane she wishes that he could set her free but what will happe

Even better than book #2, which was worlds better than book #1. I seem to always be moved by slave trafficking stories, no matter who's writing them. Though, I could have sworn I'd read the first 2/3rds of it before, but then it changed, so I guess it was just a VERY similar story). So, you could say that I liked the plot. My only problem was that I got annoyed whenever:
1.) the hero would say "good girl" to the heroine, constantly. He would pet her hair or face, etc , like she was a pet dog. Wha

Ok, I'll be honest... Starting out I was battling, but not because the story wasn't interesting but because I didn't know where these people came from and how they fit into the Valetti Family!

It takes about a chapter or 2 to figure that out and then its just addictive smooth sailing from there. LOL

This story is heart breaking and full of triggers. But if you read anything and can disconnect yourself from the story, its very interesting and addictive.

Ava and Kane's love story is not your conven

This is an extremely dark book, absolutely not my cup of tea. But if you like this kind of thing, the story could be wonderful with a caring hero with extreme strong wills and feeling who'd move heaven and earth for the love of his life. It's just absolutely not my thing. Now that I've read it, I'll have to really concentrate on forgetting everything about this book.
I think it's unfair to rate the book down simply because it wasn't something for me, because as I said the writing is excellent.

This is my favorite book of the Valetti Crime Family Series. The storyline is a big issue in today's world human trafficking. It's a rough book rough story. Now the biggest complaint I have is Kane is a character that came out of nowhere, you don't meet him in the first two books. I understand why the character was brought in. You don't find out till the end. Now all the these books are all instant love themes. I really liked Ava she has survived horrible things that no human should, even with t ...more

This was just OK for me, I didn’t hate it nor did I overly love it. I thought the narrative was addictive but found that there were a lot of repetition in some areas. For example, the amount of times Kane’s inner monologue says he doesnt like being involved in the slave trade started to get old. I also didn’t feel the connection between Ava and Kane. And thought that it was way too easy the way Kane was excused from his obligations to the Mafia. What made this audio enjoyable was Lance Greenfiel ...more
