After a brush with death as a juvenile delinquent, Vivian swore she'd never stray across that line again—but there's just one problem with her plan to stay on the right side of the law. She's completely, irrevocably and unabashedly in love with Nikolai, the Russian mob boss who saved her life.
From the moment Vivian appeared in his life on that tragic April night, Nikolai felt himself inextricably bonded to her. She's the bright light in his dark world and the only thing that keeps him from sliding deeper into a life of crime and violence—a mobbed-up life he can't escape no matter how hard he tries.
After Vivian is ripped from his arms in a brazen blitz attack, Nikolai will stop at nothing to get her back—but rescuing her and keeping her safe in his arms isn't enough. Suddenly, Nikolai's only chance to protect her is to do the one thing he vowed never to do—he'll drag her deeper into his shadowy world and bind her to him forever.
Because their tangled pasts are about to collide and the shockwave threatens to bring Houston's criminal underbelly to its knees…
I was sure that this was a sugar coated gangster type book .. Nope; far from it. It was believable, wonderful and heartfelt ... The ladies Roxie Rivera creates are wonderful and not those ridiculous "I'm doing it all myself-I don't need your help-as i put myself in yet another harmful situation" type characters.. Or those woman that feel it's ok to slap a man whenever their mad leaving the hero having to take it .. (Not that I think the man should retaliate ; more the man should drop the violent woman and move on) anyway this is a fun read and the heroines are beautiful woman of culture! The love the characters feel for each other is great! I cannot wait to read the rest of this writers series..
Read them all, quick, suspense, drama and love lots of love. Can't go wrong!
It was okay
I was really looking forward to this story, but it was a little bit of a disappointment. I don't want to post any spoilers but from icy indifference to love in a few pages was a little to much of a jump.
