Anyways, caveat aside...A successful lawyer gets kidnapped by her baby daddy who is a criminal and then changes her whole life around to fit his desires but RR writes it like it was really the heroine’s choice so it was fine. First of all why does she have to hate her job? Can’t we have books that celebrate powerful, working mothers or just generally ambitious powerful women?! Also if either of them were going to change their jobs it should be the criminal so he doesn’t go to prison and lose out on being able to be a father/coparent. Frankly that was never addressed and that was the main issue in the first place! Never mind that (maybe spoiler but like not really) he was a smuggler of antique furniture and not doing anything super nefarious. Also, he literally kidnaps a woman which right of the bay is a big old red flag and in my book would eliminate anyone as a potential partner. The whole storyline really frustrated me and made me sad because the premise could have been the same just without the non-consent and it wouldn’t have had to lose anything. Anyways, I’m sure I’m in the minority and a lot of people like trash men as romantic interests but I hate them and thus I didn’t enjoy this book.
At different times each of the main characters will drive you crazy. The dual point of view format of the story lets the reader experience their complicated individual internal struggles first-hand. This is a romance book, so you know there’s going to be some kind of HEA. But there were definitely times in the story that I wondered how on earth they were going to get to that point. The chemistry between Lucy and Ravil is intense and has some D/s qualities, consciously adjusted to reflect the fact that Lucy is pregnant.
Some of the issues that arose between them originated in unexpected ways, like a big problem caused by her best friend toward end of the story. It did make me wonder if that friend is a character we will see later in the series. I will definitely be pre-ordering each story in this series is they become available. It is already made clear by the end of the book that 2 of the men in Ravil’s crime family have their stories ready to be told, and there are at least 3 others who I want to know more about. Plus, the traumatized sister of one of those 3 clearly has great story potential. Break out the pierogis and your best Russian vodka and settle down for a very entertaining read.
Overall I truly enjoyed this book and can’t wait for more in this series.
One couldn’t keep but fell in love with Ravil, he gave her everything he could, A woman couldn’t ask for more. But he is still a stubborn old fool. He had a lot to be thankful that his Lucy is a brave and strong woman to slap some sense into him.

Ravil is the Dom head of the Bratva in Chicago. When he chances upon Lucy again after one hot night together 5 months earlier he quickly realises her baby bump is his. And this is where the fun begins.... Kidnapping, seriously hot Dom/Sub play, bedrest, birthing classes, midnight swims and a gentle undercurrent of falling in love.
Lucy is strong and feisty and isn't afraid to stand up to Ravil. As she begins to trust him more she learns that he is more than his prison tattoos.
If you love a hot Mafia boss and a surprise pregnancy then this is the book for you
The story is about a Lucy lawyer coming to terms with the father Ravil of her unborn child being a bratva chief. Who Lucy has hidden from Ravil. Once he find out , he wants to revenge her lack of honesty.
Ravil has had a hard life , but is good to his men. Lucy is trying to come to turns with her new situation.
I did enjoy this story. we have domaince and submission and love. with misunderstanding.
