Immediately, on the first page we dive into the dark underbelly of the mafia and we’re introduced to the boss, Roberto Barbieri. He’s Italian and he’s mean, also known as “The Barber of Brooklyn”. Why was he given this nickname? Well he’s got this awesome technique of slitting people’s throats leaving behind a bloody mess ;)! Anyways, Roberto is a ruthless motherducker who doesn't play around. I sure as hell would never cross him. He soon orders his two sons, Theo and Sal, to kidnap the daughter of his Irish rival, Paddy McLaughlin. Easy peasy right? NOT!
What starts out as ‘pick-Kaitlin-up-with-her-one-bodyguard’ instantly turns into a wild car chase. The clean cut plan goes to h3ll and crazily enough, more people get involved in “operation kidnap Kaitlin”. That’s when things get real!
I knew this story would be dark, gritty, and twisted with elements of shock but I didn't expect it to also be funny with sexy banter. I loved Theo and Sal’s dry sense of humor and their sexy snarky mouths lol. In those moments, you really get to see Callie and Lili’s personalities shine through the pages.
What I loved most is getting a piece of every character and of course the amazing cameos by two very sexy and beloved characters; Zeth Mayfair (Blood & Roses series) and Jase Ross (Gypsy Brothers series). Their chapters were definitely considered bonuses and sent me into full fan-girl mode.
This is the start of a badass TEAM!!! Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain, together are a force to be reckon with. For I will be reading everything these ladies write; together or separate. You ladies are my two favorite AUSSIES and I love your faces!!
Blogger Note: It ends in cliffy that has you wanting book 2 STAT!
We meet Theo and Sal at the beginning of the book while their father is giving them instructions for their next job. A quite simple task. They are to kidnap and bring back in one piece the daughter of their father's enemy, Kaitlin McLaughlin. All goes according to plan until little Ms McLaughlin escapes.
What ensues after her escape is to a point kind of funny. These two have the worst luck and everything that could go wrong, does. I mean, these guys are criminals and I felt bad for them at some point, lol. The book is told from different POVs. That was a little distracting to me, but just because my ADHD kicked in. But I enjoyed getting everyone's side of the story. The suspense was killing me!! I kept flipping pages in my kindle, intrigued by the whole setting of the story and wanting to know MORE!! I really, really enjoyed "seeing" characters from the author's other books.
This book is action packed and you will not be able to put it down once you start it. The story flowed brilliantly. We get A LOT of drama, angst, action, sex, and so much more. I can not wait for the next book. Can I just take a second to say, THAT MOTHER EFFING CH!!!!!! I NEED MORE!!!!! Okay, now go 1-Click this gem!! ;)
I’m not going to waste time in giving a rundown of what this book is about, primarily because it’s short (about 113 pages), and the blurb does a pretty awesome job. I will, however, say that’s there is so much awesomeness crammed in those 113 pages that you should definitely just one-click this and be on your merry way.
Over the course of the book you will come across eight point-of-views. That’s right, eight! I thought it would be a little more overwhelming than it actually was, but Hart and Germain have a knack for bringing everything together in such smooth transitions that it actually enhanced the reading experience. It helps to give you a more in-depth look as to what’s happening and pulls you deeper into this world by allowing you to be in multiple places at once.
Here are your POV players:
Roberto Barbieri: Mafia boss. Italian. Would kill his own sons without hesitation.
Sal Barbieri: A bit unhinged. Funny. Stuck with Scarlett.
Theo Barbieri: More responsible than his brother. Hot. Throws down with Gracie.
Kaitlin McLaughlin: Irish Mafia daughter. Annoying. The ONE person whose head I didn’t want to be in. God, I hope they kill her by the end of the Series.
Gracie O’Connor: Kaitlin’s body guard. Tough. Smart. Can throw down with the best of them.
Scarlett Winchester: Hilarious. Snarky. Addicted to alcohol and pills to help her deal with her past.
Jase: From the Gypsy Brother’s Series. Haven’t yet read those books, so I was just a little lost with him. Not sure of his role just yet.
Zeth Mayfair: From the Blood and Roses Series. Roberto is interested in using him for business purposes.
I was never, ever a fan of Serials but when it comes to Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain, I’m like a moth to a flame. I just can’t stay away. I’m drawn in and have to one-click anything and everything that they write. It’s an addiction, one that I can openly admit to having.
Overall I’d have to give Hell’s Kitchen 4.5 stars. It was fast paced, action packed, and provided me with a lot more laughs than I would have ever expected. I seriously can’t wait for the release of Tribeca!
