Product Description

Product Description

You’re never really out until you’re dead. That’s what the mob bosses, gunrunners and car thieves of Seattle will tell you, anyway.

Zeth Mayfair, ex mafia enforcer, has other ideas. Since falling for Sloane, he’s managed to turn her life upside down. Now, he’s determined to give her a stable, happy and, most importantly, safe life. If that means he has to sleep with one eye open and one hand on a shotgun, then that’s what he’ll do.

Mason Reeves is just looking for a way to take care of his sick sister. Since their mother left, things have been hard, and they’re only getting harder. Prescription meds don’t come cheap, and working as an auto mechanic only pays so well. If he wants to give Millie the life she deserves, he’s going to have to earn it with his fists. And who better to teach him how to fight than the guy who took down the biggest gangster in Seattle?

You can try to get out…

You can try to be good…

You can steer clear of trouble…

But it’s only a matter of time before trouble comes looking for you.

*** Zeth and Sloane are back alongside a cast of new characters in the new Chaos & Ruin series ***

Violent Things is Book 1 in this, the sister series to Blood & Roses.

You can read this book if you haven't already read the Blood & Roses series! Upon delivery of the book, you will find an in-depth synopsis of the previous series, should you wish to jump straight into Violent Things but are yet to meet Zeth Mayfair & Sloane Romera.

Of course, Violent Things will be more enjoyable if you start their journey from the very beginning. If you choose to do so, the reading order for the Blood & Roses series is as follows:

Mason is a young man who instead of going out partying and getting into trouble he has to work a dead end job to have enough money to put a roof over the head and food in the belly of his little sister....who he is the sole caregiver for. He works in a mechanics garage across the street from Blood and Roses gym. Enter ZETH MAYFAIR.' He catches Mason breaking in to his gym and instead of dealing with him his old school ways Zeth gives him a place to train as a fighter. Simple enough eh? WELL IT'S ANYTHING BUT!!!!!!!! Callie has interwoven story lines from her other series so tightly you will not believe how this one ends....I was literally gobsmacked!!! YES SHE WENT THERE!!!! You don't need to read her other FREAKIN FANTASTIC series to get Mason's story but the other parts of Zeth's story'd be wise to read her Blood and Roses series (and really why haven't you by now) and Hell's Kitchen to give you the background of why Zeth's story is going where it's going. BUT I think you'd be okay reading Violent Things on it's own...cause Callie is just that freakin good!!!!

Callie is a genius writer, in Zeth and Sloane she has created two charcters that I will never get tired of reading about sorry Callie your just gonna have to keep writing more and more. We see a new ( almost ) Zeth, he's adjusting to his new life with Sloane, can he really leave his former life behind with no consequences and what does he do with all the aggression he still has, one way is sex with Sloane and his bag of tricks and damn he hasn't lost his touch, they are still hot as hell together. I love them together, he brings out her naughty side while she is his calm, I think she centres him without trying to change him, thank goodness. We meet some new guys in this one and I'm intrigued to see what impact they are going to have on the future and of course the bitch is back yeah Agent Lowell is back and still gunning for Zeth, the big question is does she have something on him this time and will Zeth be pulled back into the business. I can't describe how much I love this author and this series and will be waiting anxiously for more.

***Gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review***

Zeth & Sloane are back!!!!!!

We see Zeth has mellowed out (slightly) and is on the straight path, Sloane is still working at the hospital working all the hours god send, Zeth and Michael still running the gym Blood & Roses.

Zeth being his naughty commanding self is still pushing all of Sloanes sexual buttons which leads to some Hot Hot sex scenes and a return of the Black Duffel Bag!!! how I have missed that bag!!!

We get to meet a new character called Mason Reeves, right from the get go I loved his character, he isn't without his own personal problems which I'm guessing could get worse as DEA Lowell rears her head and also a few other characters but I'm sure Zeth and Michael will get to business and sort it out.

We see the transition in Zeth and Sloane's relationship which also surprises Zeth as it goes into a deeper level of emotions which I absolutely loved.

With drama,passion and humour Violent Things has a promising start to an excellent series, one which I can wait to start the journey of reading.

I was so excited about this book. I love Zeth and Sloane and couldn't wait to catch up with them. And as nice as that was, it wasn't the best bit about this book for me. We meet Mason Reeves. I LOVED Mason. Left trying to look after his sick sister, he really is trying his best. Working as much as he can, he's still struggling for money to pay for his little sisters medication. When he decides to use a gym after hours to blow off steam, without permission, he gets to meet Zeth. Now Zeth has mellowed somewhat over time. Still the same, but completely different, Zeth is just Zeth, doing what Zeth wants. Seeing something in Mason he decides he's going to help him. Fast paced, hot and with a really good story, Callie has done it again with another fantastic book that will leave you wanting more. Highly recommended even if you haven't read Blood & Roses series. I can't wait to see more of Mason...and Zeth of course.

Simply devoured this!! When Ms. Hart promised more Zeth and Sloane with the sister series Chaos and Ruin, I had no clue how generous she'd be!! I thought the story'd be about someone else with Zee in the periphery -nuh huh -- this was full on Zeth's POV!! And Sloane's and also a new character, Mason Reeves.
The story takes place three months after the end of Blood and Roses. Sloane is in full swing at the hospital. While still under the critical eye of the Chief of Staff, she's making a name and climbing the ranks as a stellar trauma doctor. Zeth is content to run his gym and take care of Sloane...while it all sounds rather domestic, Zeth is still the dirty, deviant man I love...

“There isn’t a man alive on this planet that can come close to being anywhere near as sexy, thrilling, scary, alluring, or terrifying as him, all in one go.”
And Zeth and Sloane are still are as beautiful, searing and combustible as ever!! And damn, the wake up calls that man gives Sloane...I wish I was Sloane!

“He’s a thing of chaos, a thing of destruction. Chaos and ruin were the only things he knew for so long.”

Okay, focus, back to the, Mason breaks into Zeth's gym and comes head to head with Zeth and Michael. From here, we learn of Mason's life, his sole responsibility for his little sister Millie and his desire to make some serious coin as a fighter so he can give his sister a better life. Zeth sees something in Mason and decides to teach Mason how to fight.
This book has planted the seeds for trouble to grow with the New York Mafia reaching out to Zeth; the skank DEA Lowell showing up and Mason's entrance into illegal fighting. This first book promises more hot steamy sex, friendship, danger and darkness...I can't wait!!!
