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



4.5 STARS! ★★★★☆

  "You know who I am, sweetheart. I'm the enemy."

Let me just say that Callie and Lili are amazing dark romance authors on their own and put them together, you're gonna expect some really dark and messed up stuffs going on in this read, right? Or maybe a whole lot of violence and blood shedding? Wrong. Well hold onto your guns & knives, these two ladies just raised a whole new level of Hell with this collaboration because Hell's Kitchen is nothing like I've read before and it blew me away! 

 Two households war, two brothers and two women who got caught in the crossfire of it all in the heart of NYC; Theo and Sal Barbeiri are sent on a mission by their notorious father, Roberto to kidnap the daughter of their Irish rival mafia head. Sounds like an easy task when you do the math, two Italian boys versus one spoilt daddy's girl. But just when everything that could possibly go wrong seriously goes wrong, buckle up for Operation Gone Awry.


 Right off the prologue, I knew I was gonna be taken on for one thrilling ride and indeed it was but boy, I wasn't expecting the direction these authors took BUT I LOVED IT! It's deliciously dark, it's edgy plus sexy and believe it or not, it was one helluva damn entertaining read. I don't know what possessed those two ladies while they wrote this one but I'm pretty sure they made it their personal mission to make their readers laugh maniacally in even the most dire situations. 

 I know, trust me that sounds pretty unbelievable coming from those two who had written some damn f*cked up stuffs in the past but you will be completely surprised by what this dynamic duo is capable of.


 I loved the unpredictability that came with every chapter and with each new character coming into play, the transitions of multiple POVs came off smoothly and not to mention, the entire story was paced so well that I found myself devouring the entire thing in no time. A wonderful balance of action-packed scenes (man-on-lady fight OMFG), the sizzling undercurrent of sexual tensions, the dark humor that leapt off these pages AND VOILA you'll get the unexpected birthchild of Hart Saint Germain.


 Also, what happens when Lili's Gypsy Brothers series and Callie's Blood & Roses series all collide in one place? All I can say is that fans of both series will be in for one mighty treat and you'll be needing some cold showers thereafter (I know I did). Well someone surely turned the heat up because the re-acquaintance of your favorite characters from both series will have your Kindle burning up to an all-time high!


It goes without saying that this read easily lands itself on my Top 2015 reads shelf. My only wish is that it was a longer read rather than a prequel novella length but overall, I felt the ladies did a fantastic job setting up some amazing groundwork to set the wheels in motion for the next instalments. It ends with a mini cliffy twist but just enough to keep you on your toes for the next one!  

Callie Hart & Lili St Germain, you've completely outdone yourselves with this one, I LOVE IT! I NEED MORE. 

  Hell's Kitchen is the first part of the Hell's Kitchen trilogy and is a collaboration work between Callie Hart and Lili St Germain.

About the Authors

Callie Hart


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.

Lili Saint Germain

Lili writes dark romance, suspense and paranormal stories. Her serial novel, Seven Sons, was released in early 2014, with the following books in the series to be released in quick succession. Lili quit corporate life to focus on writing and so far is loving every minute of it. Her other loves in life include her gorgeous husband and beautiful daughter, good coffee, Tarantino movies and spending hours on Pinterest.
She loves to read almost as much as she loves to write.
