New Release & My Review-Dancing for the Badman by Hayley Faiman

Dancing for the Badman (Russian Bratva #3)
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Available NOW on Amazon

A lifetime ago, Kirill Baryshev was a man in love. Born and raised to embody what it means to be a Russian soldier—hard, cold, and ruthless—she was the one person he trusted with his heart. She was his gold. She was his treasure. And then she was gone. Her death, coupled with the death of their unborn child, was an act of betrayal. She took herself away from him after learning who he really was. A badman. A Bratva man. 

A decade ago, Tatyana Orlova was a young woman who knew her future—and he was unbearably handsome. But when the FBI knocked on her door, warning her that her future was a dangerous man with ties to the Russian mafia, her fear rewrote her future in seconds. Pregnant and alone, she fled, the heartache of her decision something she knew she would carry with her always. Raising a daughter on her own, working the pole night after night, was far from a dream come true. Her life was about survival. Her hope was lost in reality—until her past darkened her door.

Lies. Regret. Fear. Anger. It all rises to the surface when the truth is revealed and Kirill and Tatyana are reunited. One federal agent’s obsession leads the fated lovers back together. But the love they once shared was shattered years ago, and the pain that accompanied that loss may not ever be overcome. Tatyana will endure Kirill’s cruel treatment toward her for the sake of their daughter, but the love she harbors for him is not lost. His presence makes her hope. His presence makes her dream. Maybe, just maybe, she can dance her way back into her badman’s heart.

** Recommended for readers 18+ due to Language, Sexual Content, and Violence.

This series just keeps getting better.
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!
