✱✱Audio Book Review✱✱ Aldo by Melanie Moreland


Men of The Falls, Book 1
By: Melanie Moreland
Narrated by: Maxine Mitchell & John Lane

My best friend is the king of the Niagara Falls underworld. There is no one I am more devoted to. Until she catches my eye and changes everything.

Aldo Ricci
Right hand to Roman Costas.
Enforcer. Loyal.
Alone. Happy to stay that way.
Until she walks into his life.
Violet Nelson
Unexpected. Alluring. Off-limits.
But he can’t stay away.
The last thing he expected from her was the one thing he’d never sought.

A thrilling romance duet from New York Times Bestselling author Melanie Moreland

Momma Says: 5 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

I love a morally grey hero. Seems like a contradiction in terms, right? And maybe Aldo is a shade or two darker than grey, but darned if he's not sexy as sin while pushing the limits. He's fierce in his work and equally fierce when it comes to taking care of Violet. There's just something about those guys who know from the minute they see the one, even when they don't realize that they know. I love that Violet has the sass and strength to stand up to Aldo when necessary and be willing to walk that grey line with him. Maybe not in actions, but she's not squeamish either.
I fully expected to enjoy this one - it was written by Melanie Moreland, after all - and I did. It didn't take long for me to be completely smitten with Aldo, and Violet is a terrific heroine. The story has some grit, but we also get to see Aldo's softer side, as well as a bit of a sense of humor. I can't wait to see what's in store for Roman in the second part of the duet!
And since I fell so totally for Aldo when I read the book, I decided I needed a second dose by way of the audiobook. John Lane and Maxine Mitchell are both terrific narrators. So, when they're on the same book, you know it's gonna be good. So much the better when they're combined with a book by Melanie Moreland. I love Aldo's attitude, and John Lane brings that out wonderfully, and Maxine Mitchell gives us all of Violet's sass. Honestly, whether you prefer to read or listen, you can't go wrong with this one, and if you're like me, you can enjoy both!
