On a purely personal level I don t like this cover at all Scratch that I just don t like the way the model is posed I guess I honestly can t put my finger on why I don t like it I just don t That said, it is a well done cover The composition is very good It has an eye catching title work although I would have made the title a little smaller so it would sit just under her feet and not over them It s a good representation of the heroine So ya, personal feeling aside it s a great cover.E On a purely personal level I don t like this cover at all Scratch that I just don t like the way the model

and LOVED SORDID last year I have been dying to read Vasilije s book, and this one did not disappoint Perhaps not as risqu as book one TORRID itthan held it s own in the smokin hot category I found it to be well written and fairly well paced The sex scenes were hot and plentiful No OW OM drama It had some interesting secondary characters as well I d LOVE to see a book featuring Konstantine It also had a small cameo of Luka and Addison the couple from book one Both main characters were likable Oksana was strong and had a plan Got to admire a girl with a plan Vasilije was complicated I liked him for the most part, but sometimes he did cross over the line for me Mostly when he was humiliating Oksana I am not a huge fan of humiliation in my romance books, so those few times he went there left a bad taste in my mouth But most of the time he was an incredibly sexy anti hero.As much as I enjoyed it overall, I did feel that it was maybe a TAD on the too long side There is a lot of sex but the whole actual point of the story doesn t kick into gear until around 75% in and then we move at lightning pace until the end I would have preferred to have gotten to the revelation sooner and hadstory devoted to plotting and planning That said this one still get two thumbs up from yours truly Here I thought I was going to get to read my first book with Serbian rep As a Serbian, I m deeply disappointed that this first was a fail Read a free preview of the book and right off the bat on page 2 the author gives an incorrect phonetic pronunciation of the hero s name DO YOUR RESEARCH AUTHORS

gorgeous, and talented, and I found her fascinating She looked so pure and good on the outside, but inside she was dark like me An evil creature dressed up in pretty packagingAnd don t worry the heroine isn t just the cliche angel to be deflowered shes a devil in disguise thanks elvis I ve read mafia shit before but this one just felt so real like guys the russians are gonna come for me or at least i hope so hahahHe was forgetting how a pawn who survived crossing the board could be promoted to a queen.I could go from the weakest player to the strongest one in a single moveThough the chess thing was just kinda spun in at the end and it was a good idea but music wasprominent but the chess was in the summary sooIt s a good thing, he murmured, I don t have a fucking heart Mmm I had my eyes closed, enjoying the sensation of his warm breath filling my ear The cadence of his voice was slow and hushed If I did, I might love youAnd i lll be perfectly frankat times this book gave me fucking

Sloane, she s a one click author for me I find her books really passionate, steamy and a tiny bit raunchy but in a really good way This is Vasilije and Oksana s book.I completely enjoyed this book, it was 100% up my alley There s a lot of steam, hence the cover, the title and the series in general and this one has a slightlymafia theme than the previous one I love a good mafia book.Vasilije is ruthless and cold but he s also endearing and very possessive He s not a soft Hero, but he has many redeeming qualities I like his temperament and I like the way he treated Oksana Oksana is a mystery to Vasilije, she s just a girl he picked out and now he doesn t know what to do with her He wants to play with her, but can he make sure she doesn t play with him You feel for Oksana and her circumstance I like that she is a strong Heroine, but she s not wallflower I love that she can submit, but she can also stand up for what she believes in I also like the backstory and realizing the characters are complicated, it added depth to the characters I feel like the author did a good job in creating a balance of tension, passion and intrigue I was always interested in what was going in the book and I wanted to see how the story would play out The book is tamer than Sordid and that did disappointment me a bit, but I understand why, considering Sordid was ban fromI think if Torrid wasn t linked to Sordid I wouldn t have high expectations for this one, but regardless Torrid was a fun read An ARC was provided 4 rule the world STARS Review Midnight RomanceI ll be damned You know

continuation but I wouldn t recommend it to read as a standalone You can read Sordid also in this book because it got banned a while go fromBut surprisingly, I liked this book very much Totally different from Sordid.As an illegitimate daughter of Russian mafia, Oksana s life is hell She was sexually harassed by her father s right man and it traumatized her His father didn t care about her and Oksana wants to prove her worth even she despised him She came with the plan to take down the Serbian Oksana is really an interesting yet complicated woman She held my attention so far.While Vasilije Markovic s brother, Luka didn t take interest in the dark world, Vasilije plan to rule the mafia His uncle takeover the reign after his father s death Then came an unexpected surprise in a form of mysterious Russian girl, Oksana But this girl blinded his vision with her beauty and feisty attitude and Vasilije decided to keep herVasilije was a beautiful, poisonous flowerThe story told from dual POVs between Oksana and Vasilije I easily liked both of them Their banter was full of hate and lust Vasilije isn t bright like his brother But he managed to earn the position with his cruelty I liked with his honesty about everything No bullshit kind of man That s the true mafiaWhen I said no one else would touch you, I fucking meant it I don t like people touching my shit I skated my fingers through her crevice And this This is all mine You re my propertyTheir chemistry was very instant Even Vasilije is threading everything carefully with Oksana, he couldn t control his lust Well, she s his captive atm He s really protective and territorial but not in the creepy way Half of the story is really contains a lot of sex and sex I really enjoyed Vasilije s intensity again, different like Luka and it was totally HOTHis kiss took from me My power My submission And I gave it all up without a fightThe suspense came late almost in the very end It felt rushed with a loud bang and bang Both Oksana and Vasilije told each other that they didn t have heart to feel love But they re wrong Those two very much inseparable They re just afraid to love because of their past Again, I liked how they re open to each other even with Oksana s lies , Vasilije seems genuine towards her well being from the first Outside his rough exterior, Vasilije has mellow heart.Overall, I loved this so much No OTT drama Well written with nice flow However, the ending seems ended up abruptly while I wantOksana and Vasilije s intimate moment Hmm Will Konstantin Oksana s half brother be the next
