Release Day Review: Children of Vice by J.J. McAvoy

I, Ethan Antonio Giovanni Callahan, first son of the former head of the Irish mob, Liam Alec Callahan, and former head of the Italian mafia, ex-governor, Melody Nicci Giovanni Callahan, solemnly swear to ruthlessly protect our family name, business and way of life, no matter the cost to me or anyone else. I shall show no mercy, I shall offer no forgiveness, there will be no peace for those who stand against me.

I will live for my family.
I will kill for my family.
I will marry for my family.

I, Ivy O'Davoren, the only daughter of Shay O'Davoren, solemnly swear to ruthlessly and mercilessly exact revenge on the Callahans and all those who betrayed my father and family.

I will live for revenge.
I will kill for revenge.
I will marry for revenge.

You devoured the Ruthless People series. Now it’s time to revel in the reign of the Callahan children…

"The world isn't black or white. Sometimes you need to do bad to do good and worse to do even better."

I am a huge fan of Mafia Romances, and JJ McAvoy's Ruthless People series is one of my all time favorites. So the moment she announced that the children of the main characters would get their own story, I got so excited. I was counting down the days until I could get my hands on Children of Vice. I had very high expectations and the author didn't disappoint. What I loved most was that the she stayed true to the characters, and that they didn't become a watered down version of themselves. If you have read the Ruthless People series you know that there are some very crazy twists, she continued giving us many more in this book. This makes the story and the actions of the characters very unpredictable, which I loved. I also loved that the author gives us a totally new story with an original plot. 

She did an amazing job in fitting everything in one book and making it flow so seamlessly. It was definitely a page turner, I just couldn't get enough of the characters. Ethan found his match with Ivy, their unconventional romance was really thought out. And the more I learned about them the more I loved them. Family plays an important role in this book as well, and I appreciated seeing what the other characters were up to. This book is also about revenge, it was dished out so perfectly. I have no idea how the hell the author comes up with these things. This book has left me wanting MORE (in a good way). I NEED the next book in the series Children of Ambition, I am actually dying to get my hands on it. The ending of this book left me speechless, I should've known that JJ McAvoy would throw another twist at us.
