1 Marriage + 2 Bosses = 3x the Chaos


To the outside world, they look like American Royalty, giving to charities, feeding the homeless, rebuilding the city. But behind closed doors is a constant battle for dominance between two Bosses, cultures, and hearts.
Ruthless People is a romantic crime fiction set in modern day Chicago, and follows the life and marriage of Melody Giovanni and Liam Callahan—rivals by blood and leaders through fear. Their marriage, arranged by their fathers in hopes to end years of bloodshed between the Irish and the Italians. Liam believes he’s getting a simple-minded wife, one he can control, one who bends to his every need . . . the complete opposite of Melody. She knows exactly what type of man he is, and would rather die than give up the power she has spent her life building. The Mafia of the past has evolved, and with rival bosses gunning for them, Melody and Liam will have to learn to work as one to take down those who stand in their way.

Smokin' Hot Book Blog Interview with J.J. McAvoy Author of Ruthless People 

How was the idea of "Ruthless People born?

It was born from my Desire for a strong female lead and annoyance of cop shows. I wanted something different. 

What was your favourite scene to write?

My favorite scene to write was Melody and Liam meeting for the first time. I loved it because Liam is so excited (and a little sexiest) that when Melody basically gives him a taste of reality, I laugh each time at that part.

Melody has her White Shoes, do you have any superstitious/meaningful rituals?

No not really. Oh, when I'm writing I can't have people sit on the left of me if that counts. I have no idea why it just makes me feel crapped.

Do you think of Melody as your extreme alter ego?.. Minus the murder, of course.

Yes. There are times where I really so feel like she and I are one on the same....no not the murder stuff but the things deeper then that. Like how she doesn't know how to connect with others and how she feels like she had to grow up way to fast. I get her.

In London "jumping the queue" is a pretty big deal, what every day things make you feel ruthless? 

The moments when I tell my parents to back off. Lol. It's not much but when I stand up to my parents and say "hi. I'm an adult." I do kind if feel ruthless (in a good way.) other than that I don't really have ruthless moments.

I almost don't want to mention your age because it shouldn't factor but what advice do you have for any other young writers? 

I would tell them to remember that they aren't alone and that writing is hard for everyone. That they should sit back, take a breath, and then just remember to write a story they want to read.

Thanks such for having me on your blog JJ
