**Bloody Business Prequel**

Mafia Family | Arranged Marriage | Enemies to Lovers

A burning sneer, a snide remark, and a stolen kiss.

Three distinct memories among a million others that stain my childhood with Remy Luciano.

Sour gummy worms and a nickname.

Two more memories and everything I loved to hate started blurring at the edges.

A wedding dress made for another.

And one

Mine, A Bloody Business Prequel by @ajwolf_author
⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

I was honored to beta for our amazing Mob Queen and Wolf Pack Leader, AJ!
This book is raw and unedited but DAMN! I have nothing bad to say. I love it. It’s gritty and touching, giving us the story of how Remy and Beverly came to be the amazing alpha couple they are.

“Want to ditch this shitty ass charity and do something fun?"

“I don't particularly like spending time with you."

“Is that a yes or a no, Bev?”

Mine is the prequel to My Heart where we first fell in love with Remy and Bev.
And I do freaking love them! They are perfect for each other in every way. I don't think anyone could handle the stubborn, sarcastic, independent and sassy Bev like Remy can! They balance each other out since Remy is the silent domineering type and boy did he have me on full alert! Anytime he opened his mouth, I was all ears!

But reading Mine you learn that their beginning wasn't exactly easy. I guess it never is in th

"A burning sneer that was made from a warm honey gaze.
A snide remark that was split by a winking dimple.
And a stolen first kiss that tasted as sweet as burnt sugar."

I have been waiting for this book for a long time and got involved in promoting it. When I do that, I do it solely because I believe in the story, I believe in the book, I believe in the author, and I want to share that with all of you.
AJ has shown remarkable talent and the whole “Bloody Business” series is worth your time.

My Little Booktopia
‘I know I only get a set number of stolen moments, brief touches, and hot kisses from here on out so I’ll brand them to my heart with a hot iron, never forget what it was like when he was mine.’

Mine by AJ Wolf is a new adult, mafia, enemies to lovers, arranged marriage romance, is told from duel POVs and is the prequel in the Bloody Business series.

Every single one of AJ’s books have been pure fuc*king perfection and this one is certainly no different. I’ve been wanting more of Bev and Remy sin

I'm new to this universe so this was a fitting introduction! This is the prequel to the Bloody Business series - the first book in particular. Here, we get a first glimpse to Beverly and Remy, and it's glorious and intriguing. Their start is a rough one with trials and tribulations. It also had lots of entertaining banter and intense chemistry with two people where the odds weren't exactly in their favor. Since I'm n

Mine: Book 0.5: Bloody Business Series by AJ Wolf

Okay so I’m pretty sure I died like a thousand times whilst devouring this book because damn AJ took me on another emotional journey! But she also made me laugh because even through the serious plot of the story she always manages to include glimpes of humour and I love it

Mine is book 0.5 in the Bloody Business series and is the prequel to book1, Remy and Bev’s love story! I practically read this in one sitting, it gripped me from begi

I’m so glad AJ decided to write this book it just made me fall in love with and appreciate these characters more ! We got to see everyone when they were young and before mafia life really changed them . I loved getting to know Julian and seeing how loyal and close him and Bev were to each other it makes my heart hurt so much more for them . Mine was a angsty steamy a little forbidden addictive read and once I picked it up and started I couldn’t put it down. I was so glad we got a peak into the p ...more

Loved it. LOVED IT!
If you hadn't already guessed it, I LOVED THIS BOOK. If I could give it more than 5 stars, I would!
The minute this arc landed on my kindle, nothing else existed. I read it like some sort of speed demon. I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN.

Bloody Business is one of my favourite series so when I found out that A.J. was writing the prequel to Remy and Beverly, I was SUPER excited!!

Mine: Bloody Business is the prequel to this great series. If you have read the rest of the series you would have been introduced to Bev and Remy and their somewhat complicated relationship. Both characters fit so well together but boy are the stubborn and definitely take the long way around when it comes to their relationship.

We get a glimpse into what they were like as children then older as they navigate their feelings for each other, whether it be frustration, sometimes hatred and developin

Oh Bev and Remy how I love them! This prequel novella to Bev and Remy’s story is EVERYTHING I could have wanted and so much more. I loved getting to see how their story started!

Bev is full of sass and feistiness and I LOVE her even more. She is not one to follow the rules and does what she wants. She is strong and fearless and after reading the previous books in the series she stays true to herself. I love that she isn’t afraid to stand up against Remy or really anyone. Remy is his typical alpha
Sep 12, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This was the PERFECT story of Bev and Remy. If you already read My Heart in this series then you already know that they are both stubborn, fighters, and they don't give up. They started that way from the time they were kids until they got together.

Remy always knew how he felt about Bev and you see peeks at his protectiveness throughout their younger years in Mine. Bev took a little longer to acknowledge and accept her feelings. But when she does it's too late, Remy is arranged to marry someone

Rating: 5 Stars!

As someone who's read book 1, I knew how this would end BUT the emotional ride AJ Wolf took me on was so unexpected.

I'm not a huge fan of prequels so I was really nervous to get this arc but oh. my. god. I did not need to worry at all. I know this may be a wild thing to say but I'm pretty sure I might like this book more than book 1...I KNOW I KNOW. How DARE I say that.

How do you rate a book that you seriously grown attached to. Remy and Bev aren’t just fictional characters to me. I’ve grown to love them as if they’re actual people. Witnessing their journey has been AMAZING. Reading where it all began and falling head over heels in love w two of my fav characters all over again has been an experience i will forever treasure. I can’t say it enough AJ is D O P E at what she does. Sh
》This is the Bloody Business Prequel and meant to be read before the rest of the series - reading order: Mine, My Heart, My Life, My Girl.

Pretty sure I found A.J. Wolf during an Instahop and I am beyond thrilled!

There's something in this story that hits me deep in my soul. Maybe it's too close to reality. Maybe it's the phenomenal writing. Whatever it is I will read anything and everything she writes from this point forward. Enough with my emotions, I cried enough reading this book - both happy

I was so excited when I found out we’d be getting a prequel to Mine (My Bloody Business) since like so many AJ Wolf fans, I have a very special place in my heart from Remy and Bev. And this short novel does not disappoint- it has everything I’ve come to love about these two lovers and gives us the story about how their epic romance all began. Plus, we get to see some of the other relationships from a younger lens- which was a fun bonus.

Mine was outstanding, fantastic, and so many other word but does not do it justice. I absolutely am in love with this book. AJ Wolfe outdid herself with Mine. I was right there with Bev going through the roller coaster of her feelings. After all, it can’t be easy what she went through. You could feel and understand with all the word choice and reactions AJ wrote when it is Remy’s POV. I laughed at their antics and byplay when they were growing up. You just knew that Remy wanted and loved Bev. Be ...more

This prequel was sheer perfection. I adored this story and read it in one sitting. I couldn’t put it down. The love story between Remy and Bev is a rocky one filled with emotion, heartbreak and strife. Beverly is the perfect character. She is headstrong, confident and feisty. She is the perfect companion for mafia prince Remy. Their love is a slow angsty burn but once it ignites an inferno ensues. Beverly fights her feelings for Remy for so long until she is faced with the knowledge she may lose ...more

I've been dreaming about this book for ages, and let me tell you, none of them made it justice. It was everything I hoped for and so much more. To see the growth of feelings between them through the years. The teasing, the secret moments, the stolen kisses... It was amazing. The chemistry between Bev and Remy is addicting, and so fucking hot. The way they complete each other is beautiful. And to see them after all the shit they've been through is a dream come true. I love Bev to death, she's str ...more

Even though I know that Remy and Beverly end up together since this is a prequel it still hurt to read. Oh, it hurt so good though. I was on an emotional rollercoaster and felt the push and pull between the pair. I was happy, sad, mad, you name it. The author pulled al sorts of emotions from me which made this such a phenomenal book. AJ Wolf slayed this story! This is a 5 star read that I would recommend to lovers of angst and mafia romance.

Cuore Mio...MINE! Those three words that I can’t let go! I don’t even know where to begin with how much I LOVED this book!

I knew from the minute I read the blurb...I was a goner! Then I had the pleasure of reading the first four chapters and OMG!!!! I absolutely fell in LOVE with Remy!

Remy, his name alone speaks volumes! He was everything any girl could want! Hotter than fire, built, had sex appeal for days, not to mention a jealous but but not mean streak but others knew what belonged to him a

I just can't get over this book! Remy and Bev's story was ALL THE THINGS! I can't get enough of of her personality. So fiery and full of sass. Their relationship is so sweet and absolutely hilarious at the same time. Now that I understand how their story began, I'm even more excited to do a reread of the next book in the series!

I wasn’t quite sure how I felt about Bev at first. I didn’t understand why she was so angry and rude to everyone. But I also love the fact that she stands up for herself and does not let anyone treat her poorly.

Remy is a damn snack though.
The two may be complete opposites but they worked so well together.

I am 100% certain that anyone who reads this book will immediately go buy the next.

Mine is the Prequel where we first fell for Remy and Bev.
I loved reading about them as they grew up.

They are perfect for each other, they balance each other out. Bev is stubborn, sarcastic and sassy and Remy seems to be the only one that can handle her! He's the strong silent and domineering type.

You learn in this prequel their love story want so easy ( it is the mafia...I guess not everything can be that easy 🤷🏻‍♀️) Remy is pretty much forced into an arranged marriage via his father, but not to

THE ANGST! OMG! I was dying reading this story. I have tears rolling down my cheeks from all the raw and unfiltered emotion. My heart is sore in my chest from all the clenching it did. Remy and Beverly's hate and love is all consuming and takes my breathe. I'm just enamored by the journey that this author took me on.

I am so glad that I read this book first before the others in the Bloody Business series. I know I am in for a hell of a ride when I do dive into My Heart, book one, Remy and Bev's
Ughhh this was exactly what I needed! This prequel is PERFECTION. The banter, the steam, the violence and did I mention THE STEAM?! Woooo it was hella hot.

I loved Bev & Remy in My Heart (Bloody Business Book 1) but getting to see their relationship grow from when they were kids was so sweet and beautiful! Oh and can I just say...I’m not a fan of the whole forehead kiss thing, but palm kisses?!?! *swooooon*

I love this story reading about Bev and Remy growing up. Beverly is such a badass bitch and love how she doesn’t conform with the pre set standards. Her and Remy and pure fire. I laughed, cried, laughed, swore, and cried happy tears! Great book!!!

I absolutely loved this prequel. I loved seeing how Beverly and Remy's love story started. I love the love-hate relationship they started out with. There's definitely a fine line between love, and hate you see that in full force with Bev and Remy. Remy's love for her is so deep and breathtaking while we have to wait and watch Bev move through the challenges in their friendship. I can't wait for you all to read the prequel to this beautiful story. I know you'll love it as much as I do
