Publisher's Summary

I’ll kill to protect her. And then I’ll make her mine.

Marcus

They always called me crazy. Sociopath. A monster without a conscience.

I always thought they were right. I've never backed down from anything, and the only thing that has ever soothed the monster in my chest was killing.

Then, she walked into my life. The woman who seduced me, so she could sell my secrets to my enemy. I should have killed her, but when I looked into her eyes, I knew she was the only one who could save me from myself.

Evelyn

It was supposed to be an easy job: seduce a ruthlessly handsome man and steal his pen drive while he’s sleeping. Not the worst thing I’ve had to do while working for the mafia. By far.

I didn’t know Marcus Steel was the son of London’s most dangerous crime family, and I didn’t know one night with him meant that every criminal in London would be after my blood.

He’s the only one powerful enough to protect me now, but I’m not sure if that’s what he’s got in mind. I’ve seen what he does to people who cross him. He’s a monster. And now, his sights are set on me.

Monster is the second book in the Made & Broken series, but it has a HEA ending and can be listened to as a stand-alone. This full-length mafia romance contains dark and explicit scenes. Listeners, beware!

A good story

I really liked this one. It had a good, solid story that was sexy and dramatic at turns. I gave it four stars because I wanted more detail on why Marcus was the way he was and kinda wished for an epilogue. Narrators were both great and worked well with the story. Would recommend giving this one a listen!

Hot!

Dark, dangerous, and delicious.

Normally, I don't listen to darker romance, but this one sounded so good, and it did not disappoint. Really interested in reading some more of her books.

I will start with saying, I did not read the first book in the series, but I didn't feel lost. I'll have to go back and read the blurb for the first. Marcus made the best hero. So dark and dangerous. He has the sex appeal. Nora definitely delivers on some heart-pounding, throat-swelling emotion that you would expect from this kind of romance.

If I had to find something wrong, maybe his possessiveness was a bit fast? But I also feel like it's part of this sub-genre. He sees something he wants, and he will have it. I think his hard edges and Evelyn's soft side will really mesh well together. I definitely wouldn't mind a Monster for myself.

Marcus is amazing

My God, this book. Marcus could just be pure evil, but as you learn more about him you find he's got layers. I listened to the audiobook and I honestly don't think anyone other than Shane could have done Marcus justice. Rachel was perfect as Evelyn. She really brought all of the emotion into her performance. A standout scene for me was the meeting with Marcus and his family. His performance was really fantastic in that scene. This story is gripping and suspenseful, crazy and hot as hell.

LOVED IT!!!

After a month of not being able to find any decent audiobooks I'm so glad I found this.

Marcus is my favorite "tortured hero" of all time. I feel absolutely in love with him. The heroine was awesome too!

The story was exciting and I couldn't stop listening.

My only issue was with some of the dialogue. Some of it felt forced and unnatural. Like those things needed to be said so were just shoved in... nothing at all to make me dislike it.

I definitely recommend this!!

Good but not quite great.

After finishing Dangerous, I immediately wanted Marcus’s story. He is such an intriguing character who is dark and oh so dangerous. Evelyn is a honey-trap, sent to steal from Marcus. However, she gets more than she bargained for when she meets this enigmatic brother. Both are drawn to each other, in ways they can’t explain. When confronted by her “employer” about the flash drive she stole from Marcus, she finds herself protecting him, consequences be damned. She is taken and beaten, but Marcus comes to her rescue.

I really liked both characters and once again the narration was fantastic! Marcus is dark and dangerous, but with a surprising soft side. Evelyn is the perfect strong woman in need of a little support in her life that is killing her slowly. However, his need to have a baby with her seemed a little out of place. I loved how compassionate Evelyn was toward Marcus and how protective he was of her, but I think the middle of their relationship was a little rushed to their conflict. Add the chaos of the ending that tackled some major plot points rather too quickly for my taste, and combined caused this second story in the series to fall a little short of the mark for me. It was a good story, but it had the potential to be great.

Darkness & inner demons abound!

If you love dark mafia, Alpha protector romance with an antihero who is terrified of his inner demons this one is for you! Excellent fast-paced story, super spicy but not too crazy, and excellent performances that are really powerful by both narrators! Rachel Knight is new to me, but I will definitely listen to her again. I am narrator motivated and picked this book because of Shane East, a powerhouse performer who always delivers!

Marcus' story is so good!

In this second book in the Made and Broken trilogy, we get Marcus and Evelyn’s story. We got a brief intro to Marcus in Dangerous, and I was immediately drawn to the quiet, sociopathic brother that freaked out their brothers from time to time.

Marcus is on constant watch that his darkness doesn’t consume him. He’s able to control it for the most part, but when he lets it off its leash, there’s no stopping the death and destruction that occurs. When Evelyn is assigned by a rival crime family to seduce then steal from Marcus, she wasn’t prepared for the monster within him. When they meet, there’s an almost immediate bond, but Marcus is just a mark, and Evelyn can’t worry about the aftermath of her actions. She has her own reason for doing them. But when Evelyn’s life is threatened, Marcus sees Evelyn as inevitable, and will do whatever he needs to do to save her.

I found Marcus’ story haunting. He’s harboring a lot of dark secrets, and Evelyn seems to be the one person to bring light to his life. There’s plenty of nasty, filthy, erotic goodness, and I’m loving how the story unfolds. This continues the dark storyline of the Steel crime family, and there’s a bit more of a roller coaster in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and can’t wait for the next book, Trouble.

Shane East and Rachel Knight narrate this book, but Shane is really showing off his acting range. His performance is stellar.

Enjoyed this one!!

Call me a push over, but I loved this story. This monster of a man could be vulnerable with one woman (love it) and did everything in his power to keep her safe and his. Yes it was a little far fetched that a hardened assassin would love so deeply so quickly and have such a blind spot where his love is concerned, but I loved every minute of this story. Rachel Knight and Shane East did a great job with dramatic interpretation of the characters.

A noticeable difference in audio quality

The story and performances were great, but the female narration had a notably worse audio quality than the male - echoey and faint in places. The narrators were excellent and the book very entertaining
