Publisher's Summary

We were destined for disaster from the second we met....

Massimo D’Agostino is the heir to his father’s empire. Don’t be fooled by his handsome face or that piercing blue gaze. He’s no prince charming. He’s dangerous and feared, possessive and fierce.

Our first meeting began with a contract that forced me to marry him and sign my life away. I was a debt repayment and a pawn in his game to exact revenge against my father. The only way out is death.

I belong to him now. Me, the Balesteri Mafia princess. Pure and untouched.... Owned by the devil who placed me in a gilded cage. 

But something unexpected happened the moment our paths collided. It made me want more of what he had to offer every time I lay beneath him. 

Then the past came knocking at the door, and dark secrets scattered at my feet. Suddenly I don’t know truth from lies. Or who the monster in this story is. I thought it was my husband. Now I’m not so sure…

Ruthless Prince is the first book in the Dark Syndicate series. It is a stand-alone dark-mafia enemies-to-lovers arranged-marriage romance, complete with HEA and no cliff-hangers.

Contains mature content.

Story is good but the male narrators...

Story is great but the dude's sounds like he's old, doesn't fit very well with the character. The story line is great. The author needs to find a better narrator.

Ruthless Prince

I wasn’t sure about this book with the mix bag of comments I read but it turned out to be a good listen. It had some suspense, revenge, power hungry male alphas, love angst, sex and a HEA to round it off. Is it worth a credit sure if you like all of the above!

Male narrator ruins the experience!!


I am a huge fan of Faith Summer’s books and loved this series. The male narrator however is awful. He has annoying voice but worst when he does the female characters it’s down right cringey!!! Especially the way he voices the character of Candace. Candace is 25 and grew up in America like Massimo and his brothers. However, the narrator makes Candace sound like a 90 year old women who just got off the boat from Italy. I truly hope they have another male narrator for the other books in the series because this guy should not narrate female characters. Also Candace is a big part of the next 2 books in the series and I hate for him to ruin those books too. They should have just had the female narrator narrate the whole book. The male narrator ruined it for me.

Not a mystery

It could have been a lot shorter, the storyline had potential but all of the fluff took away from the story.

Fantastic Audiobook!!!

I listen to hundreds of audiobooks yearly…and this book (and series was on top! The story was exciting and yummy. But the writing and narration was the best I had heard! The story was exciting, yummy, and full of clever twists and turns. Dramatic, funny, gut wrenching, and sexy. As good as it gets!

review

I loved this story. I liked both narrators, however, it failed when the female reader was doing the male part. Didn’t sound masculine at all.

Good Story

I liked the story... but the male narrator voice was cool but not strong enough for the role. When he was to be mad it didn't really seem like he was mad. The female character was truly a princess didn't even know how to fight.

struggled to finish, don't waste your money/credit

the male narrator was not a good fit, did not fit the characters personality and to be completely honest made me cringe alot making skip until the female narrator started speaking. massimo is supposed to be a 29 year old but the narrator sounds like a man in his 50s adding to the cringe when it comes to intimate dialogue. the actual story is ok nothing exciting or binge worthy.

Great story

Loved it although there were a few words that were constantly repeated throughout the book, that could’ve been interchanged with other words, for example soul.
