How Do We Survive Together? Irish Roulette, Book 5 By: Ki Brightly, M.D. Gregory Narrated by: Keval Shah

How Do We Survive Together? is book 5 in the Irish Roulette series. Love this series centered around 5 guys who live together and work together. Each is so individual yet attracted to each other. They are also part of an Irish mob and have a lot of the issues involved with that.

From the blurb:

The mobster with heart: Rowen Shaughnessy thought he had the only man he needed—Dr. Vail Mifflin. But when Fallon shows interest, Rowen starts to question his entire view on the world, along with his feelings. How much love can one man give? Fallon has been a constant in Rowen’s life for months, and Rowen never paid much attention to the younger man until now. There is more to Fallon than meets the eye, and he deserves to be romanced. Rowen wants to play that part in Fallon’s life.

The attention-starved fighter: Fallon Maher is interested in as much love as he can get, and his fascination with Rowen increases. He wants a whirlwind relationship, since that is all he has ever known, but Rowen is different, because he needs to take his sweet time. Going slow isn’t something Fallon is used to, but he is willing to give it a shot if it means real feelings will grow between them.

A world full of chaos: As their romance heats up, so does the violence surrounding them. Their mob—the Killough Company—is at war with a cartel that is set on taking them out. Their world is on fire, and they can either join the battle, or end up in a precarious position that could result in their deaths. Can they fall in love while they’re fighting for their lives? Or will it all be too much?

How Do We Survive Together? must be listened to as part of the Irish Roulette series to get the most enjoyment out of the story. The book does not end on a cliffhanger, but there are more Irish mob stories to come from Ki Brightly and M.D. Gregory!

Reedkaye's Review:

I'm reviewing the audio edition. I’ve stated before there is nothing like the audio editions. They make the characters stand out and give them so much better personalities than I do when reading. Keval Shah gives authenticity to the accent and tone of these characters. I love this series and if I had only one edition I’d want it would have to be the audio.

This series focuses on a group of men and their intertwined relationships. This story mainly focuses on Fallon and Rowan. Rowan in a less intensive personality. He does relationships rather than playboy. At this point all the guys have gotten to know each other and all their personalities enter into their interactions. Rowan and Fallon have wanted a more personal closeness and with the guys being split up and Rowan in charge of taking care of Fallon and Vail, they get that opportunity. This gives Rowan a chance to get to know Fallon better and spend some alone time with him.  

The story also centers on the ongoing war with the Reyes cartel. This gets intense and things don’t go as planned. This story is really a cliffhanger. Sloan gets in the middle of things and I was left wondering what would happen to him.  Conell gets to show his strengths and I am impressed.  

Now I’m really anxious for the next book.
