Radimir Zalesky has only ever known darkness. His choices have always been simple–live or die. Saved by the Russian mob, he is now the embodiment of a Bratva solider. Yet, in spite of the cold, hard world in which he finds himself, he dreams of what he knows he does not deserve. Light.
Emiliya Chekova was born a printsessa, daughter to the infamous Ivan Chekov. Her life has been out of her hands for as long as she can remember, her only option to obey. When her father’s betrayal to the Bratva ends in death, she is a possession passed on to another–now owned by a badman.
Resolute to submit to her fate, Emiliya endeavors to be the light Radimir craves–but his demons are not so easily seduced. Thrust into the heart of a dangerous world in which Radimir resides, Emiliya discovers the cost of love, learning just how far she’s willing to go to keep it.

Seducing the Badman is book 2 in the Russian Bratva series, and is by far the best book Hayley Faiman has written to date. I first fell in love with Radimir in Owned by the Badman, book 1 of the Russian Bratva series, and was ecstatic to find out that he was getting his own book. He was one of those supporting characters that you just knew you needed to find out more about. Hayley Faiman did not disappoint with his story. Radimir is a dark man, he has seen and done things in his past that most people have never had to experience. But there is another side to this man. A side he only shows to his Emiliya. When they are alone he is sweet, sexy and romantic. He has a vulnerable side that makes you just want to hug and comfort this badman. Ms. Faiman has done such an amazing job of creating such a complex character.
Emiliya grew up with everything money can buy. But as the old adage goes… Money can’t buy love. Unconditional love was a foreign concept to her. She was raised to settle a debt. But before her father can repay the debt with Emiliya as currency, he is taken down by the one man who will potentially change her life.
This book has all of the steam from book 1, but kicks it up a notch. It is sexy, dark and full of adventure, love, loss and healing. It continues the storyline from Owned by the Badman, and leads it into a direction I did not see coming. I loved the twists and turns in the story. I was burning up my kindle turning pages so fast to find out what would happen next and how Rad and Emile would ever get the HEA they both deserve so much!
I am totally hooked on this series. Each book keeps getting better. I cannot wait to see where Ms. Faiman takes us in the next book.
A definite 5 star read from Hayley Faiman!
