    Sienna, I’m keeping a vigil desperately waiting on this boxed set! When I found out this book would be about the very mysterious enforcer, Renaldo, I decided to re-read the series to see if I could learn a little something about him before the book drops. To say I’m intrigued is a serious understatement.

    I do have one question: I thought he was going to Chicago not NYC. Maybe this is explained in the book? I appreciate your talent.

    OMG! I feel head over hills with Renaldo Cracchiolo! He was just all man, mysterious, and SEXY! I was so hot and bothered I had to go to sleep to cool my head. I love the way you really get to know Renaldo and see that he is more than just a man who protects the women and enforcer to the Don. I really loved how Mira stepped in a brought his girl to him and how Domi handled everything he was HOT! Side note: I personally feel that Catalina needs to grow up more, love her dearly but she just kinda upset me with the way she acted in the book. All stuck up and not really caring. Now Marietta had it going own but I do feel like because she new what Kyra was up against with everybody hating on her she should have been more understanding and its the fact the Renaldo asked them for help that they should have honored him and not throw it back in his face. I mean this man does put his ass out on the line to keep everyone safe and they do claim him as family so treat him like family. I felt that Mira and Domi ( to a certain point )was the only ones who gave a damn.

    Question: Will we be seeing Kyra in the coming books and will Marietta and Catalina be working close with her on future projects?

    How does Gio feel about what happened with Renaldo and Kyra?

    Pepper Pace, good writer and I may buy book two of “Everything Is Everything”. However, I find her writing a little to dark for me. After growing up in the projects I certainly don’t want to read about something that depressing. My goodness, I was sad reading this book. Just a little to dark in her writing. Never brought any of her books, now I know why. (Lighten up).

    Sienna, Amazon needs to show the “box set” and not just the one book with the man on it for “Scandalous Heroes”. I have had four of my friends go on the Amazon site to buy the book set and they had to call me back to see if it was justice one book or if it was the nine books as I informed them.
    All other box set that Amazon has, shows all the books in the set. Why not your’s? It makes people think there is only one book. Ask for the first showing that was up. One could see there a total of nine books.

    I love you, pepper pace in this box set although I did not like how they treated Ronaldo in the book as if he was beneath them…I cannot wait to read everything is everything. Keep up the good writing.
