Publisher's Summary

Savage (adjective):

  1. Not domesticated; wild and untamed
  2. A brutal or vicious person
  3. Malek Antonov

He’s a myth. A ghost. A legend.
A Bratva assassin so feared, some won’t even dare to speak his name.

He comes in search of vengeance for the death of his brother, but what he finds instead is me.

A girl he thinks is someone else. Someone unrelated to the man who killed his brother. Except I am.

And when he finds out my true identity, he decides to take me as repayment for what he lost.

Now, I’m a little bird trapped in a cage, and the only way to survive is to make friends with the monster who captured me.

But, friendship isn’t what the monster has in mind.

Ooh Malik and Reilly!

JT Geissinger has done it again! This 3rd book in the Queens and Monsters series is amazing. Lots of funny dialogue and witty banter. I would love to expand on the book but want to keep spoilers at bay.

The narrators are amazing and I love that it is a multicast production. I am anxiously waiting for the next installment in this universe!

Really great series

Pretty low stakes as far as mafia romances and I mean that in a good way. Not too heavy or bloody. Thoroughly enjoyable. Love them all.

Excellent story with great narrators!!!

I really have enjoyed this series! JT Geissinger write an excellent story with characters that are big, bad, broody gangsters… who fall at the feet of the women they love. Mal may just be my favorite!

Troy Duran is a favorite male narrator for me. I could listen to him read anything…. Brooke Daniels and Michelle Sparks we’re new to me when I started this series, but I quickly found that I enjoy both voices.

I definitely recommend this series!!!

Lass who ensnared the Ghost

Malek And Riley...Mal & RI...Grump & sass
It's oil & water combo that takes away the breath, the heart, the kidney, et AL.
So powerfully magnetic was the chemistry it struck me with a force of a tornado. A Gaelic Tornado.
Also there's clash of ideologies of nations, sisters, mafia and passions.

Savage Hearts - Riley and Malek

This book was so good! Each book in the Queens and Monsters series has been great. Loved Malek. He was a tough guy but had a heart of gold when it came to Riley even though he tried not to show it. Riley was funny like her sister Sloan, although I found Sloan to be funnier. Malek is in Declan’s home to kill him. Spider catches him in Riley’s room and attempts to shoot him. He shoots but Riley jumps in front of Malek and gets shot. Malek takes Riley to Russia where she is operated on and he takes good care of her during her recovery at his home in the woods. Spider takes his life in his hands by going to Russia to find her. He wants Riley for himself. Malek and Riley went to dinner at the Pakhan’s house. I love the scene where Riley defended Malek to him. The Pakhan’s reaction to her was priceless. I also love Malek’s reaction to her when they got home. I felt so bad for Riley when, after three months, Malek called Spider to pick her up and return her to the US. Riley was heartbroken. This is a series that I would love to go on for many more books. It is just that good! I cannot wait for the next book to come out. The ending was good and left the door open for more. Troy Duran did an awesome job with the narration. Brooke Daniels and Michelle Sparks were also very good.

It’s a multiverse!

Have been thoroughly enjoying this series. Narrators are perfect, and halfway through this book I realized that another series from this author ties into this one. I love a good multiverse! Worth the money/credit.

Awesome!

JT Geisinger has become one my new favorite authors. Her books keep you on the edge of your seat, laugh until you cry with the banter between the characters and melt with the heat between the hero/heroine! You won’t be sorry if you pick one up. Enjoy!

Amazing

I’m in love with this series and I think listening to on audio is making it even better. The narrators that are used are incredible, they make me feel like I’m experiencing the story myself.

Where do I start with this story?! OMG I loved it. I was addicted to what was happening and what was coming next. It was sooooo freaking good!

I loved Riley, I mean she is just another version of Sloan and who doesn’t like Sloan? Meeting Riley and seeing her personality come alive throughout the book was incredible. She just got better and better.

Mal?! What can I say about the brooding huge Russian other than whoa 🥵🥵 he was something else. Everything about him had me weak in the knees 🖤

Their story is far from a fairytale but what a story it is. From the start Mal was drawn to Riley, like he was being pulled to her on a string. He was so protective but so determined to keep her at arms length too it was like being on a rollercoaster.

The spice 🥵🥵 oooo when it happened I was thinking I really shouldn’t be driving and listening to this 😂 and maybe should of had an extra pair of knickers too!

This is a very dark Mafia MF book. The audio is duel narration with 3 incredible narrators who just made the story even more incredible.

Fab

Loved this story, it might not have the knock of the previous 2 books in this series but I loved the way it was written to show 2 lonely souls finding each other. Fabulous read, funny, sweet and loving. Can't wait for Spider's book.

Amazing

This is one of those books that come along once in a while and you can’t believe how fantastic it is.
I read it fist on my kindle, as I have done for the whole series, then bought the audiobook because it’s
THAT GOOD!!
The performers are the best I’ve ever heard. It will make other narrators pale in comparison. Don’t hesitate to buy, I’m a little jealous of those who are hearing it for the first time. I know I will have it in my EarPods on repeat ❤️‍🔥

A perfect mind and body seducing performance!

Savage Hearts is book three in the Queens and Monsters series, this can be read as a stand alone despite the references to characters from books one and two. It is the story of Riley Rose who goes to visit her sister and new fiancé and ends up shot, kidnapped, losing a kidney, her spleen and torments the life out of her kidnapper so much that he contemplates taking her back.
Malik (Mal) is a Bratva assassin and has vengeance on his mind. He wants to get revenge against the man who killed his brother only he see’s Riley Rose and mistakes her for a prostitute being held captive by the Irish mob, so he makes it his mission to save her.
Riley Rose is a freelance book editor who has a strained relationship with her sister, yet this relationship takes a back seat when she finds herself caught between a Bratva assassin and the Irish mob. Her smart mouth and wicked sense of humour has Mal the assassin questioning his sanity.
Troy Duran, Brooke Daniels, and Michelle Sparks are new to me narrators and honestly, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to have these amazing people in my ears.
Troy’s voice is something else and was perfect to portray the grumpy, witty assassin. My mind and body were totally seduced by that deep, raspy, gravelly timbre.
Brooke’s performance as Riley Rose was incredible. She was sassy, witty and her comedic timing was spot on.
Michelle didn’t take a big role in this as Sloane was only a small part in Malik and Riley’s story, but I enjoyed her as the hard, buttoned up, soon to be wife of the Irish mob boss.
Overall, I loved this book. It was the perfect blend of dark and sexy and am looking forward to more from this author and these narrators.
My favourite quote of the book
“You make me wish I’d lived a different life. You make me wish I could go back in time and start over again. You make me think the world isn’t a shitty place after all. That goodness exists and happiness isn’t make believe and true love is possible. You make me believe in miracles Riley Rose, when I’m with you I feel like my life hasn’t been such a waste.” - Malik

Hilarious

I haven’t laughed this much from the many books I have tried to read this year , Half way through I decided to buy the previous two books. J.T s descriptive writing made me feel I like I was watching a romantic comedy. Riley…what a character.

Malik, the lone wolf

Sloane is worried about her sister. She invites her to help her with wedding plans.
Malik is patiently waiting to get a clear shot at Declan.
He sees Riley when she arrives. He thinks she is a hooker.
Declan slows all the Mafia clans down by shooting all the bosses.
One of them is Malik’s only relative - his brother.
There are no friends, but many enemies, all out to kill someone.
