Sarah's Review + Release Day Launch: HELL'S KITCHEN by Callie Hart & Lili Saint Germain

Hell's Kitchen by Callie Hart and Lili Saint Germain is LIVE! Scroll down to read what Sarah had to say about this new release. 

Hell’s Kitchen (Hell’s Kitchen #1)*From International Bestselling authors Callie Hart and Lili St. Germain comes a tale of two families co-existing in a melting pot of violence, murder and drugs in the seedy underbelly of New York City*
Hell’s Kitchen

Theo and Sal Barbieri are brothers, tasked by their Mafioso father Roberto with a very clear purpose: kidnap Kaitlin McLaughlin. The beautiful daughter of Roberto’s Irish enemy. It’s high time Kaitlin was punished for her father’s sins—not to mention, her own.

And Operation: Kidnap Kaitlin is a roaring success… until it isn’t. When Kaitlin escapes into the busy streets of New York City, it’s a race against the clock to find her before Sal and Theo become the hunted.

 Zeth Mayfair has traded his life as a hitman for a quieter existence, but it isn’t long before the past catches up with him in the form of Roberto Barbieri. Will he succumb to the lure of power that Roberto is offering? Or will he retaliate by killing every last Barbieri in New York to get them off his back?

Jason Ross is running. Woken in the night by a tip that the Gypsy Brothers are coming for him, he packs a bag and gets his girlfriend the hell out of dodge. Arriving in New York City in the midst of a heatwave is one thing, but being tailed by an entire drug cartel is another.

 Worlds collide in Hell’s Kitchen as secrets come to light and sins are punished. Because we might be different in the light of day, but in the darkness, we’re all connected somehow.

 Hell’s Kitchen is a serial comprising three volumes: Hell’s Kitchen, Tribeca and Bleecker Street. Volume One releases on March 3rd with a limited-time sale price of 99 cents

Callie Hart and Lili Saint Germain are two of my favorite dark romance/suspense authors.  I knew for a fact that this colaboration between them would be mind blowing.  I was not disappointed.  There were a total of eight POV's in this first installment.  I was kind of nervous for that but it worked very well and went off without a hitch.

Theo and Sal Barbieri find themselves in deep trouble with trying to kidnap Kaitlin McLaughlin, the daughter of the local Irish mafia kingpin, Paddy.  It didn't go as planned, and they're screwed.  We get information from so many people with their hands in the pot it all starts to come together.

“We’re not good, we’re not OK, we’re not anything except completely screwed.  We’re dead men.  I'm too young and pretty to die.”

Kaitlin is pissed off at the world but why?  She's got everything she wants, and her father never tells her "no". Kaitlin travels at all times with at least one body guard and today, is no different.  Gracie, her bodyguard has her work cut out for her and she doesn't know it until it's too late.
“I'm going to take great pleasure in wiping those Barbieri brothers off the face of the earth.”

Zeth Mayfair from Callie's Blood & Roses series and Jason Ross from Lili's Gypsy Brothers series each get their spotlight in Hell's Kitchen and I couldn't have been happier.  Zeth is just as deliciously filthy as ever, and Jason is perfect. They each have their own ties to characters in Hell's Kitchen and the tangled web is getting messy.

"Morning, Angry Girl.  Thinking about me?”

This first installment of the Hell's Kitchen series is absolutely hilarious, suspenseful, fast-paced and wonderful.  I expected nothing less from Hart Saint Germain and got even more from it.  Of course, we are left hanging at the end and when book two, Tribeca, is released, I'm sure it will be just as fantastic.


Callie has experienced many changes throughout her life, and gone through many ups and downs that have all worked towards shaping and molding her into the person she is today: fun loving, active, social, and hard working. The only thing that has remained a constant throughout her life is writing. Creating characters who will tear your conscience in two is a favorite pastime of Callie’s. There are few real saints and sinners in her books; more often, the denizens of her stories are all very human. Broken, flawed, and always with the potential for redemption.

Despite the subject matter being markedly hot and heavy in comparison to the stories she wrote in elementary school, there will always be an element of fairytale to her work.Stalk Her: Website - Facebook - Twitter - Goodreads - Join Callie’s Newsletter
