THE RISING by Jodi Ellen Malpas: Release Blitz, Teasers & Mary’s Review

The Rising by Jodi Ellen Malpas is now live!

You can’t rise from the ashes if you’ve never been burned.

When notorious mafia boss Danny Black and lethal assassin James Kelly join forces to hunt down a mutual, elusive nemesis that threatens to destroy them both and take control of their city, they know they will be entering a deadly game. A game they must win if they are ever going to live in peace with the women they love away from crime, corruption, and death. But peace is an illusion, love is a daily torment, and death will always follow them. As power starts to slip from their grasp, enemies re-emerge, and old, personal demons return to haunt them both, they finally accept they can never leave their world if they want to stay alive. So they need to protect it at all costs. No matter the consequences. No matter the losses. No matter the pain. They must make choices no men should make. Kill more ruthlessly, love more fiercely, and hate with more rage than ever before. They’re capable. Ready. But nothing prepares them for the secrets they uncover and the betrayals they face. Or the personal sacrifices they must make to rise again.

Two men. One goal. No mercy.

“Two men.

This is The Rising.”

You thought the Resurrection was phenomenal, wait until you get into The Rising!! This book is exceptionally crafted and once again it’s written in 4 POV’s which is absolutely brilliantly done!! Another thing I might mention is that this is the fourth book of the Unlawful Men Series and should be read in the order of writing. So sit back and get ready for one heck of an intense ride filled with tons of action that kept me on the edge of my seat. Danny and James knowing that the wrong man was shot, after they receive a gloating call from the Bear. The two of them also know this it is inevitable that they will at some point be going back to Miami. But it becomes apparent as things begin to go awry in Miami that times up and the time has come to ready for the return to Miami and show just who is in control of the area, this time though they are not leaving Rose and Beau behind this time. Although things are a bit unsettled between Danny and Rose in St. Lucia, Beau and James are also having some of their own issues, mostly with Beau dealing her losses and staying busy. But what seems to help Beau with her being there is that her and Rose have become real friends. They are there for each other through thick and thin, having each other’s back. With Rose being pregnant and pregnancy hormones, Beau tends to coddle/humor her. Rose on the other hand tends to help keep Beau in a happy place. The two are near inseparable and respect and care for each othe Danny and James have also found common ground and a healthy dose of respect and camaraderie too. That grows into a bromance complete with tons of banter. While they know that the time in St. Lucia has been a reprieve for them they also know that with the unrest in Miami it’s time to return. And when The Brit and The Enigmas return to Miami it doesn’t take long for the carnage to begin either. Not only that but there are new players in the mix now, most especially a new busy-body cop who is out to make a name for herself. Add to that more animals (henchmen) were added to the Bears zoo. Hang on for the many twists and turns Danny and James, frequently putting them in harm’s way. Sacrifices are made. Secrets are revealed. And through it all these couple love hard knowing that their time may be limited. I know it seems kind of unconscionable to love The Brit and The Enigma, yet these two men have such a protective and undeniable love for their women you just couldn’t but adore them. “You’re my wife.  You’re my lover.  You’re my best friend. My be-all and f***ng end all, Rose Lillian Black. But most importantly, you are the mother of my children.” Danny **** “My light. Ever shrouded in darkness.  And as ever, I’m drawn to her.”  James **** “All we both f****** want is peace. Calm. Not just for our women, but for us…” And just when you think that you might know who The Bear might be… You are going to be totally blown away!! “Family. We’re one big f****ed-up family. F****ed up, yes, but we all have each other.”
