There are three rules for being best friends with a mafia princess:

1. Don’t ask any personal questions.

2. Don’t show up at her house unannounced.

3. Don’t ever, ever let anyone know you’re friends.

For three years, I followed the rules. Vicky and I met once a week at the diner where I worked. I was her slice of normalcy, she was the one person I could confide in. It might have been unconventional, but it worked for us.

One night, all hell broke loose and I got caught up in a battle of bloodshed where we almost lost our lives. I ended up face to face with Vicky’s dangerous older brothers. Anthony, William, and Nicholas Civella – the made men of the Kansas City Mob.

After fighting for my life and proving myself worthy, they brought me into their deadly world. It was glamorous but twisted. Torture, death, and crime followed me everywhere I went, chiseling away at parts of me until I wasn’t the same anymore.

Slowly, I betrayed my best friend, and fell in love.

Chances are they’ll ruin me. This thing between us has deadly consequences. But in this criminal world, I’m learning that the rules don’t apply when you’re the boss.

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Coralee June!

Malice is a standalone Reverse Harem Romance and tells the story of Juliet, Anthony, Nicholas and William.

Malice was such an incredible book. I don’t really know where to start my review. I’m staring at my screen trying to come up with words to describe my feelings for this book. Coralee June is such an amazing author, and she blew me away with Malice. Malice is a dark Romance read and I loved every bit of it. I think that Malice is so good because it’s different from your usual RH. The love between Juliet and the three brothers is not equal, they’re each fighting for her attention, and it’s so different from what I’m used to. And I love it!

Juliet is such a fun character and I think we could be great friends. She has her own true crime podcast, and I think that’s so cool. I also really love her grams and I think it’s amazing that Coralee June spread some awareness around Parkinson’s disease. As for the men, it’s so hard to pick a favourite one. I’m in love with all three men. They’re so different yet they all care for Julliet. 

Malice is a twisted and dark read, and I highly recommend it. Coralee June did such a good job with this book. It’s so addictive and well written, and it keeps you on the edge of your seat. You just have to know what’s going to happen next. I really enjoyed reading this book and I wish it was longer. I feel so attached to Julliet and her men, and I’m going to miss them!
