Welcome back in Crazyland. Welcome back in Liam and Melody's world where everything and everyone is insane. Prepare to buckle up for the ride of your life.

The Untouchables picks up where Ruthless People ended. I have to say after nearly seven months I had some problems to return into this world. It was hard to remember all the people and their interactions with each other. During the first 15%, sometimes I had no idea who was who and what they were talking about. Thanks to Rebecka in our BR with the Canaries, it became easier to remember most of the characters.

I'm sure you've heard it all before but this story is not a typical love story. Those who read and remember Ruthless People know that Liam and Melody are not a traditional couple, they are first and foremost both mafia bosses... and they rule the world or at least for the moment their world.

But because nothing is enough, they want more, always more. They want to control everybody and they want to control the free world.
In order to reach their goal, they need family because "family, for us, was everything, but it was also the one thing that could destroy us"

You are supposed to trust family but when so much around is falling apart and when everyone even the closest person to you can be questionable... what do you do?

There's one constant in this mad world: Liam and Melody

description

Both of them are coming from a long way. Liam is probably the sweet one, the one who needs attention the most. Being the Boss is not easy for him because he has to be merciless but at the same time he is the one who has to stick all of them together. Nevertheless, he has one weakness: his wife

description

Melody has grown up a lot in the past month. She is still the fierce woman everybody should fear but she can also show her gentle side to her husband.

I was glad to see Liam and Melody's relationship evolves. I know she protects herself a lot and let me tell you that if you loved her in book 1 you are going to adore her here!
The moments they have together show how much they share now. I loved Liam's possessiveness and I loved Melody's ability to let things go with him. You can feel they love each other in every scene you get to read. Their chemistry keep growing and the sex is sizzling.

description

But The Untouchables is so much more than only them. The story will go beyond your expectations. The different point of views will make you stay on the edge, wondering why you need these views, why their opinions matters so much that the author decides to put it in the book.
Being in Evelyn and Sedric's head was priceless! It shows the book can be funny at times.

Now I certainly can't wait for the American Savage!!
