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

Title: Living for the Badman
Series: Russian Bratva #4
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: November 10, 2016
Ashley Riggs’ life was forever changed when she was only seventeen years old. Thrust into a world of darkness, scarred at the hands of many, and left abandoned in a cage, her hope is found in the man who rescues her from the clutches of hell. Day by day, he breathes life into her, and her heart becomes his. But when she longs for more, her savior turns his back on her, insistent that he cannot give her what she wants.
Yakov Chekov is certain that evil runs in his veins. Direct descendant of the late Ivan Chekov—the poison that infected the Russian Bratva in ways that cannot be forgiven, and the father he murdered in the name of justice—Yakov fears he cannot love as a man should. Yet, try as he might, pushing away his sweet girl, in order to protect her from himself, proves to be impossible.
When neither time, nor distance, can eradicate the love they harbor for one another, they must both ask themselves what it is they truly want—and what, as well as who, they are willing to sacrifice to be together. Yet, through it all, Ashley knows one thing for sure. Her heart is tethered to one man—one badman who makes life worth living.

This is the Badman book that broke me! I’ve followed this series from the very beginning, knowing that while Ms. Faiman gives us a happy ending each time that being about the Russian Bratva everything won’t always be sunshine and roses. I absolutely did not see this one coming, but I loved every minute of it!!!
Never before have I rooted for the hero and heroine to not get together and for her to choose another man, but I sooo did in Living. That is until I finally was able to learn about Yakov and why he thought he was doing what was best for Ashley. Then I rooted just as hard for them to get back together.
I have claimed before that a book took me through the gamut of emotions, but after reading Living, I can say that I have now actually been through the gamut! Anger, fear, happiness, absolute devastation (we are talking several tissues devastation), hope, anxiety, love. There were parts that melted my heart, some absolutely insightful moments, times I cheered, times I cried, times I was biting my nails in anticipation of what was to come next. This is a book that reminds you that you need to grab life by the horns and live every moment, do what makes you happy. Live hard and love even harder.
I am absolutely on pins and needles for the next book in the series to come out to find out what will happen as a result of some of the events in this book. I have no doubt that big things are about to happen in the Bratva!
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard. 

Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we’re raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
