Hell’s Kitchen (Hell’s Kitchen #1)
*From International Bestselling authors Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain comes a tale of two families co-existing in a melting pot of violence, murder and drugs in the seedy underbelly of New York City*
Theo and Sal Barbieri are brothers, tasked by their Mafioso father Roberto with a very clear purpose: kidnap Kaitlin McLaughlin. The beautiful daughter of Roberto’s Irish enemy. It’s high time Kaitlin was punished for her father’s sins—not to mention, her own.
And Operation: Kidnap Kaitlin is a roaring success… until it isn’t. When Kaitlin escapes into the busy streets of New York City, it’s a race against the clock to find her before Sal and Theo become the hunted.
Zeth Mayfair has traded his life as a hitman for a quieter existence, but it isn’t long before the past catches up with him in the form of Roberto Barbieri. Will he succumb to the lure of power that Roberto is offering? Or will he retaliate by killing every last Barbieri in New York to get them off his back?
Jason Ross is running. Woken in the night by a tip that the Gypsy Brothers are coming for him, he packs a bag and gets his girlfriend the hell out of dodge. Arriving in New York City in the midst of a heatwave is one thing, but being tailed by an entire drug cartel is another.
Worlds collide in Hell’s Kitchen as secrets come to light and sins are punished. Because we might be different in the light of day, but in the darkness, we’re all connected somehow.
Hell’s Kitchen is a serial comprising three volumes: Hell’s Kitchen, Tribeca and Bleecker Street.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★
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.
Gracie and Scarlett are the women who get caught in the crossfires of the sexy Italian brothers and instead of accepting their fate, they both turn out to be Bad Ass with a capital ‘B’, The men have met their match and they are most definitely distracted from finishing the job that their father has set for them.
“Who the fuck is this woman? My dick wants to find out. The rest of me? I’m not so sure.
She’s so unhinged, she’s almost…scaring me.”…
I loved that the girls in this book didn’t behave as you’d typically expect. I also loved the sex, but then again I didn’t expect anything less.
Throw in Zeth & Sloane from Callie Hart’s Blood & Roses series, and Jase & Julz from Gypsy Brothers and you have yourselves a shit hot new series. A bit confusing with all the many POV’s but other than that I loved it!
This is book 1 in the trilogy, and it is recommended that you have read the aforementioned series by Hart and Saint Germain first.
