They thought I would do my job. They thought I would kill her. They thought wrong.


I’m a dangerous man.  It only takes one panty-dropping, mouth-watering look to know it. You may be fooled by my good looks and charm.
But my eyes give it away.

I’m the hitman for the Valetti familia, and I’m f*cking good at it. They want men

Wowza! I have been clamoring to read Willow Winters for a while so when an opportunity arose to receive an Advance Reviewers Copy of BAD BOY in exchange for an honest review, I was giddy with anticipation.

And this gem of a book exceeded even my wildest imaginings!!

In this dark and twisty 5th installment in the Valetti Crime Family series, Anthony, a contract killer, has an attack of conscience when he is ordered to take o

First time read from author Willow Winters. This is book 5 but I believe i read some where these were standalone, which I had no problem following the story. I got about 40 percent then I just couldn't get myself to finish. Loved the concept of the theme but the execution just was just NOT there for me. Lots of repetitiveness. The story felt like it skipped all the heart racing build up, exciting, OMG between the main characters just so you could get to the sex. (Dom/sub) Which was hot'ish but f ...more

Ok listen up... This is not a typical bad boy romance. I am only 16% in & I already know this is a DNF for me. WTF people!!! This isn't a romance it's a book about kidnapping and punishment until our h submits to her captor or hay she has options. Submit or die... humm let me think both choices suck ass!!!! This is a story from page one about killing, torture and degradation to our h. I enjoyed willows other books but this one, NO just NO!!!! This would have been no stars if the ratings allo ...more

I've been taken and he wants to keep me.

3.75 stars, A good dark Mafia Romance read.

I don't really like reading books with authors or bloggers or anything close to home it takes the fantasy part away for me.

That being said it was gritty, edgy and hot.

When Anthony gets a hit request for Catherine after a month of watching her every move he goes against the request and decides to keep her.

Catherines choice is submit or die.

With a Dom, submissive theme Bad boy is a hot read with intense moment

5 dark and kinky stars!

I have no words! Thank you Willow Winters!

I haven't been in the mood for romance lately, its just not a genre I've been reading, but wow, this book reminds me why I freaking love romance!

Bad Boy was a little dark, a lot kinky and oddly, very sweet. It just worked and it hit all my buttons, definitely one of my favourite mafia romances to date.

While the comparisons to Comfort Food were obvious, I really enjoyed the references as it's another of my all time favourites.

This is smut if I ever read smut before!! Yummy!! This is the darkest Valetti book I believe. So prepare yourself for the sexiest Dom you will ever meet!!
Anthony is the Valetti hitman (Tommy's brother)(I feel like I had an Italian accent saying that. Ha) He makes a living taking out guys in the list. But this name on the list is a sexy female, and after he looks into said female he decides she is his to keep. He has a kinky side and all he wants is a submissive. He knows that's not her nature bu

I received this for a honest review. I have loved each and every book in this series but this by far is my favorite. This book can be read as a standalone so please do not worry if you have not read any of the other books in the series. This book is a dark romance.. Warning: you might need a box of tissue before you get done with this book.

Best one yet

Ok, so I was a little afraid to read this one because I seen some of the one rated stars with conflicting thoughts on the book. Being forced is a hard concept to read about in any book, and believe me I'm very open with my reading material, So lets get to the grit of the book shall we. Catherine and Anthony's story was amazing, he did not rape nor hurt Catherine, in any way or form. I felt Catherine truly wanted everything Anthony wanted to give her and more, she wasn't so much scare

2 STARS...Or more, if you're into that kind of thing. Meaning: fantasising about someone (in this case, a stranger) kidnapping you from your home, life, etc. & kindly hooking you up with a comfy new room in his concrete basement. A cold cement box with an open toilet, blanket and no hope of someone finding you. From now on, you are now someone's slave. In. Every. Way. But it's ok, it's your fantasy come to life.

Well, that's just not my bag, baby. But to each her own. I hope that doesn't

When I was reading this book and wow! Just when I thought the series could get any hotter! Here comes Anthony! This book is a heart pounding, breath taking ride. It has a guilty pleasure of wanting to be controlled. I was completely and utterly thrown by how much my thought took off after reading some of this book!
Willow Has done a Perfect job with this latest entry to the series. I give it a major 5 Stars!

BAD BOY(Valetti Crime Family #5) by Willow Winters


Anthony is the hitman for the Valetti familia, and is the best at what he does. His ruthless, dangerous, and the worse kind of damaged. Things used to be simple. They wanted men to talk, he made them. They wanted men dead, he gets rid of them. Then they hired him to kill her. They thought he would do as he was told. They thought he would do his job. They thought wrong.

Catherine knows the mob well and escaped when Lorenzo beat her and humiliated her anytime he wanted. Finally escaping she went to the police and told them everything which makes her more of a target.

Words practically escape me... Bad Boy by Willow Winters is positively sizzling. Ms. Winters has skillfully written a story that had me on the edge of my seat. Raw, edgy, unpredictable, deliciously sexy, sensual, unique, and a little on the dark side, this story grabbed me at the cover and kept me captivated until the very end and even then I wanted more.
