That being said, this story deals very little with the criminal aspect, though it is mentioned and you know his crime family deals in drugs. But mostly it deals with Caroline (the heroine), sister of a Russian, minor crime leader in San Diego, and the abuse she suffered (from her brother and his right hand man (and best friend).) You get only a little history of this before the brother has agreed to give his sister as a bride to a Boston "pakhan" (leader of Russian crime family) in order to satisfy a debt owed. (The brother's friend was not happy about that). The remainder of the story deals mostly with the developing relationship between Caroline and her new husband as well as an attempt by the brother's best friend to get her back.
This is a dark romance so there are some bdsm scenes. The H (the husband, does demand respect and obedience and yes she doesn't always obey and earns spankings, but most are pretty tame. Mostly the hand, a paddle an belt are used and no damage to skin occurs. There is only one scene where a flogger is used and some description used may give the impression that there are "cuts" but upon further reading you realize it probably didn't mean actual cuts that draw blood. In fact, at the end of this scene, the Heroine actually admits that she "needs that intensity" sometimes! And by this point in the book, the author has done such an excellent job of building the story and the heroines introduction to the life style as well as her discovery that she is not only turned on by it, but "needs" it that it's all very believable.
You might ask how an abused woman would be into bdsm (I usually do and find it hard to believe). But in this case, while Caroline was raped by the brothers best friend ,(the brother never believed her), most of the abuse she suffered from both was emotional and mental. The kept her hidden and constantly called her whore and told her she was ugly, worthless and no one would want her. Her husband, on the other hand, thinks she's beautiful and precious and treats her well and never takes her against her will. Even the spankings mostly end with mind blowing, mutually agreeable, sex!
All in all, aside from the crime boss thing, the H is the best kind of alpha, dark romance hero and I really did enjoy this book. If you're into the Mafia or Bratva type romances, you'll love this!
Caroline has been abused and scarred by her life in the Bratva, not the place she wants to live her life but she sees no hope of a better life.
These two had chemistry from the beginning and I loved how they learned and interacted with each other
Have to say I never expected to love a series like this, just goes to show that great writing can pull me into the story, no matter what.
And I'm already ready for more......certain side characters need a story too
What can I say? I was eager to crack this book open. And delve into this fascinating world of dom/sub. If you have read other books, from this series. The men tend to be the same. The females, not so much. And there is where the magic is. I love to see the heroines break down, and finally submit. Emotionally and physically to their mates. To have any and every, desire handled. By a man that worships and protects them, if only?😳
I laughed so, much at the banter and power struggle. Between Tomas and Caroline, and I was pleasantly suprised. That she stood up for herself. Even, still when falling for Tomas.
This was the second best, out of the series for sure. Bratva’s Bride will always be my favorite. As it introduced me to this genre of books and for that, I will forever be a fan.
Awesome story, can’t wait till the next book
