Publisher's Summary

Now in a convenient audio bundle, here are the first three novels in Jill Ramsower’s captivating Five Families series. The full-length, best-selling novels feature the three Genovese sisters as each seeks to find love in a dangerous mafia world of lies, schemes, and betrayal. 

Forever Lies

Five minutes in a stalled elevator was all it took to turn Alessia Genovese’s world upside down. She was just one among millions of New Yorkers, but now, she’s landed on Luca Romano’s radar, and he isn’t about to let her walk away. Luca’s secret agenda shatters Alessia’s perfectly crafted life - sometimes lies are easier than the truth. Narrated by Mackenzie Cartwright.
 

Never Truth

Nico Conti was the center of my universe - until he shattered my heart, leaving me broken and alone. For 10 years, I had to find my way in the dark. Now he’s come back, trying to explain away his absence and pick up where we left off, but I’m not the same girl he abandoned. I have enough secrets to rival his own, and if I’m not careful, he’s going to unravel every one of them. Narrated by Ava Erickson and Wen Ross.

Blood Always

It should have been a simple arranged marriage, but fate had other plans. He saw her untamed independence as a challenge. She saw his alluring authority as a threat. Their lives were altered irrevocably - from enemies allied by a strategic marriage to something dark and consuming. Something that tasted like obsession. Narrated by Jo Raylan and Jason Clarke.

Warning: These are mafia romances intended for mature audiences with some elements that may be inappropriate for sensitive audiences. If you like a sharp edge to your romance and deliciously dangerous leading men, get ready to lose yourself!

Painfully slow

This book is just ridiculous. I kept listening thinking it would get better but it just didn't happen. I can't stand when women are written to be helpless with no backbone or brains.

It was okay

At first I had a hard time getting into the books. Decided to try it again since I used a credit for this and didn’t want to waste it. It was okay, the narrators were great, Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorites. Loved the sisters. I think Maria was one of my favorites out of 3. Loved the father.

A Very Intriguing, Enjoyable Series!

Great series by Jill Ramsower, who is a new author to me. Very interesting look into life in a Mafia family & the effect it has on each daughter in the family. Book one is a little slow, but stay with it because the plots & character development becomes more interesting in book two, & book three is the best of them all. All of the narrators are terrific, but Jason Clarke & Jo Raylan are both phenomenal! 💕 The various voices they flawlessly perform are incredibly impressive!! ✨

Beautiful love stories

The first book was hard for me to get into. I couldn’t connect with the characters and definitely not the narrators. Second and third books were beautifully written and narrated!

Series worth a credit

These mafia stories are written in a more sophisticated approach with interesting plots. The characters are more complex and the writer dives in their emotional and mental background reveling well hidden secrets. The chemistry between the couples is understandable and their stories are unique.
