Uitgever/Publisher Independently published Op/On 6 May 2021
Genres: Dark Romance, Reverse Harem
There are three rules for being best friends with a mafia princess:
1. Don't ask any personal questions.
2. Don't show up at her house unannounced.
3. Don't ever, ever let anyone know you're friends.
For three years, I followed the rules. Vicky and I met once a week at the diner where I worked. I was her slice of normalcy, she was the one person I could confide in. It might have been unconventional, but it worked for us.
One night, all hell broke loose and I got caught up in a battle of bloodshed where we almost lost our lives. I ended up face to face with Vicky's dangerous older brothers. Anthony, William, and Nicholas Civella--the made men of the Kansas City Mob.
After fighting for my life and proving myself worthy, they brought me into their deadly world. It was glamorous but twisted. Torture, death, and crime followed me everywhere I went, chiseling away at parts of me until I wasn't the same anymore.
Slowly, I betrayed my best friend, and fell in love.
Chances are they'll ruin me. This thing between us has deadly consequences. But in this criminal world, I'm learning that the rules don't apply when you're the boss.

Ik heb dit boek ontvangen in ruil voor een eerlijke recensie.
I received this book in exchange for an honest review
I got to read Malice as een ARC. The blurb got me interested and I wanted to know more. Do you want to know my thoughts?
Malice. I liked this story. A lot. The opening chapter was really good and it got my attention right away.
Chapter 2 was even better.
On some kind of level I understood Juliet, and sometimes I didn’t but that was okay.
I really loved Anthony’s character the most. He speaks to my crazy I guess, which is weird, probably 🤔.
This is a really dark story, but I love that. I’m not really shocked anymore by stuff. I think Coralee did a perfect job with this.
I just didn’t like Vicky. Partly I did understand her, partly I didn’t. Maybe because she was send away for a big part of the story, so I didn’t really got to know her. So I found her a bit of a dramaqueen.
I missed a little bit of a better closure at the end (not about her mother but don’t want to spoil). Like we do it like this and then everything will eventually will be resolved. I just wondered like why didn’t you do that after Anthony’s abduction before the story started? That’s the reason it’s not 5 stars for me.
And I loved her grandma. Even more after I read Coralee’s thank you. I think your meemaw was the best, girl. It’s heartbreaking to hear you couldn’t bury her. I hope you can give it a place in your heart. The memories were the best to read. She would’ve loved this story and it’s not weird at all that you dedicated this book to her, girl.
Thank you for writing it.0
