I was absolutely hooked from the prologue. I loved how the story was told in present day, but flashed back to when they were younger. This helped me to see different sides of Kirill and Tatayana.
It took me longer to warm up to Kirill than Maxim and Radimir from the 2 previous books. It’s not that his character is totally unlikable, but he was just more of a badman from the start than the others. But once he showed his softer side! Wow! He was amazing.
I loved Tatyana from the very start. She was strong yet completely vulnerable. You could see she would do anything she needed to to raise her beautiful daughter Kiska, but was not willing to compromise herself in the process.
Kiska! That is one spunky little girl. She is going to be a force to be reckoned with when she gets older. She definitely made some of the scenes.
Hayley Faiman did something totally unexpected in this volume of The Russian Bratva series. There was a crossover with her Notorious Devils MC series. This brought an interesting new element into this storyline, and I look forward to seeing if it shows up in future volumes of the ND series. This volume concentrated less on the business side of the Bratva and more on the relationship between Kirill and Tati, however it still had action and suspense.
I am definitely a sucker for the sweet guy, but these badmen are winning a special place in my heart. I am looking forward to the next installment to see how good the next Badman can be!
