They are also fully accredited by the BBB (A+ Rating), which is a rarity among Book Review and Book Award Contest companies.

“Readers’ Favorite is proud to announce that Rude Boy USA (ISBN-1518754333) by Victoria Bolton is a Bronze Medal Winner in the Drama category in our 2016 International Book Award Contest.”
This is the first novel in The Rude Boy USA book series, a story about a multi-cultural group of New York City mobsters. Mob boss Bernie Banks and his associates—John, Ben, and Jerome—differ from your ordinary Sicilian and Irish mob families. Two white, two black, they style themselves after the Rude Boy culture made famous in Jamaica.
Operating as a shell investment company supported by illegal activities, the Chimera Group hopes to become as powerful as other crime families and gain respect from the Cosa Nostra. Bernie, a war veteran of Jewish and Greek descent, begins his business in his apartment and grows it into a multimillion-dollar empire. He and his crew resemble a more sophisticated subculture of urban street gangsters with their Ray-Ban sunglasses, loafers, and debonair style. But they want fear and admiration.
Their efforts draw the attention of the rival Ambrosino family, and they face internal strife when one of the associates begins dating a former Playboy Club waitress who wants in on the group.
Victoria Bolton has written three books in this fantastic drama series.
