★★★★★! The Untouchables, book 2 of 4. Liam & Mel’s continued tumultuous & blood-filled quest for world domination!

The Ruthless People trilogy follows the merger, through marriage, of two mafia families, The Callahan’s (Irish) and The Giovanni’s (Italian), with the intent of maintaining wealth and world domination through mainly drug trafficking and corruption by a.n.y. m.e.a.n.s. n.e.c.e.s.s.a.r.y.!

Books in series should be read in order:
Book 0.5: Declan + Coraline
Book 1: Ruthless People
Book 2: Untouchables
Book 3: American Savages
Book 4: A Bloody Kingdom


In Ruthless People (book 1) prodigal son, Liam Alec Callahan, was ready to get passed on the reigns to the family empire along with title of Ceann na Conairte. Through marriage to heiress Melody Nicci Giovanni, Mel he would also take over her father’s mafia empire AND gain a meek wife to represent them…

Nothing could have prepared Liam for Melody aka The Boss who had secretly been running her family empire and was not about to relent her power. Story followed Liam and Melody in the power struggle that ensued and when they faced common enemies in a violent battle for supremacy.


The Untouchables (book 2) picks up about a year after book 1’s ending. It goes on to follow Liam and Mel as they continue their quest for world domination, including the presidency of the United States. They are taunted and challenged by friends and foes and dark, even more powerful and deadly forces. It’s an uphill battle that Liam and Mel try to fight side by side.

A roller-coaster of suspense, intrigue, sex, murder, corruption, violence, manipulation and betrayal! But ultimately it’s a journey of sacrifices and growth. And though Liam and Mel might always be ruthless people in the eyes of the world the love they share is of epic proportions!

Liam Alec Callahan aka Ceann na Conairte, is the prodigal son who in book 1 weaseled his way into my heart while managing to find the perfect balance between whopped, in charge and diplomacy. He will continue on that path while showing signs of maturity. There are more endearing revelations about him. Truly an unforgettable hero!

Nine words to describe Liam: Focused, cocky, calculated, reflective, jaded, hot-headed, vulnerable, diplomatic and ruthless.

Melody Nicci Giovanni-Callahan, Mel aka The Boss aka Bloody Melody is the perfect blend of strong, bad-ass heroine, vulnerable, broken girl and men-at-your-feet temptress with a temper! We see some self-reflection and growth and even though I heart the bad ass Mel, I am very fond of the matured Mel.

Nine words to describe Melody: V.o.l.a.t.i.l.e., motivated, competitive, fierce, smart, calculated, complex, hot-headed and ruthless.

The Untouchables, told from multiple POVs is the seamless blend of drama, romance, angst and suspense and a worthy follow up to book 1, rivaling it in every aspect. As for ending; Brilliant! Shocking! Devastating! Unexpected! Gutsy! It’s the perfect set-up for book 3, American Savages, the conclusion of their saga.

Flawless and suspenseful plot! Spellbinding story-telling! Genius character development! A captivating and truly untouchable couple! It’s a story that consumed me. 6-stars!
