Description

I’m a good girl.

I live by a code that can’t be bent or broken. It is my duty to my family to stay innocent and pure. To marry an Italian man. The stars are already aligned.  

But Nikolai Kozlov re-writes my destiny with five simple words.  

You belong to me now. 

He's Russian mafiya. A thief. A skilled liar with no moral boundaries. He is everything I have been taught to hate. A man who stands for nothing. A man who takes what he wants without a second thought.  

And what he wanted was me.  

He thinks he controls my fate, but what he doesn’t know is that sometimes it’s the good girls you have to watch out for.  

I’m a dangerous man.

I live by a code. The Vory code. It is my duty to my family to protect the brotherhood. To destroy anyone who threatens what we stand for, including her.  

She’s a dancer. A beautiful little doll. My prisoner and my new favorite puppet. This mafia princess thinks she has me under her spell, but in the end, she is simply collateral.  

It’s a shame to destroy precious things.  

But this is what bad men do.  

Note: This book contains dark subject matter, please listen at your own discretion. This is a full-length standalone that can be read in any order within the series.

dark heart

Can dark hearts be melted? Maaaybe...
A great addition to the series, although it can be listened to as a standalone, I would say go listen to the other ones too, the story will be more rounded in your mind, having those characters joining in this one too. Wow... dark, heartbreaking, I was on edge the whole time, addicted and wanting more, Ms. Zavarelli has the "spell" to keep me interested.
Not sure I liked Nikolai before, but once knowing more of his life, and his quest, I understood his drive. What Tanaka went thru as a child, then as a young woman broke my heart. I would never thought they would match, but they did, even after so many explosive encounters and the dangers they were both in. Quite a few twists and the revelations made my head spin, this story is not for the faint of heart, I didn't know it ends in HEA till almost the end.
Ms. Marks did an amazing job ... again! Love the accents, love the passion and how each character gets its own voice.

great

This was a great story with a unique spin. I enjoyed the characters and story however in hindsight, I would rather have read the books in order despite it being a standalone. The narration was great- well edited and performed. Great read- just read the whole series for maximum enjoyment :)

Melt the man's heart!

Another installment of the Boston Underworld keeping me in love with mafia romantic suspense. This story features Tanaka, a mafia princess that is given to Nikolai as collateral for a debt owed by her father. Knowing what the life consists of, she is very aware of the her situation. She belongs to Nikolai, and with this there is a definite Stockholm syndrome feel in the story, I wasn't sure if I liked the character of Nikolai, he is harsh, rough and demanding, but as I learned more of his situation, I could see the good in him. I really enjoyed seeing Alexei again, his story is so compelling, and Zavarelli wove more of his hidden secrets into this book. I love how the book melds the Irish and Russian mafias together each with skills the other can use, and brining characters like Ronan in for a cameo appearance. With suspense, angst and romance, this book is has a little of everything to have kept me engaged and looking for more.

I have to say, the narration of this book is incredible, Tracy Marks gives a stellar performance. No other narrator has the ability to switch accents and genders as easily. Each character she creates has a specific voice and you know exactly who's speaking, an amazing portrayal of the Boston Underworld!

A new twist to Mofia romance

Note, this book is part of a series. I do not recommend reading it until you have read the other books in the series. It seems like each book is centered around a different couple but the characters are all intertwined in some way. With that being said, I did not read all of the previous books and was a little lost at certain parts. It did not take away from the story, just got a little confusing at times.

The story was great! It was a new concept in the mofia romance sub-genre and the author did great with it. There were so many times when I wanted to take Nikolai and shake him for being a big, stupid goon and other times when I wanted to hug and kiss him for being a sweet, loving man.

The narration was good, I did have a hard time understanding some names and words during Nikolai's chapters because of the accent but overall it was good.

Loved the story.

I loved the way this story flowed. It was exciting and wonderful, while pulling at all my emotions.
I didn’t care for the way it was read by one person in two perspectives. The story wasn’t lost to me, it just sounded weird and I would have preferred a duo reading.
In all, I’d recommend this book, and I will definitely be reading/listening to more from this author!

Excellent narration but struggled with story

Audiobook: Narrator – Tracy Marks

As always, this narrator did an amazing job of bringing these characters to life. She brings so much passion and emotion into the story I can’t imagine anyone else narrating this series. While I struggled a bit with the Russian accents, that was a me thing and nothing to do with Ms. Marks performance. My ear just has a hard time tuning into some of the words and that’s an issue I have with other narrators as well.


To me this book felt grittier and darker than the previous books. Perhaps because it’s been a while since I’ve read a mafia story. I didn’t mind the gritty darkness, but I felt that it hindered my connection to the characters and their relationship. I struggled to believe that Nikolai and Tanaka were really falling in love. One minute they aren’t and bam, the next minute they were...with a lot of push and pull in between. However, the intense passion whether anger, hate, lust or love was never in question. There’s no doubt these characters are swimming in emotion and it shines through. It was just the transition from hate to love that wasn’t believable.

This is a slower pace read/listen but the action and drama never slow the story down. The steam is absolutely sizzling although there are some extreme scenes with moments of dubious consent, so please read with caution. I loved getting more of some of the characters from previous books and I was especially happy at how this couple are finally able to find their HEA.

not recommended

overly dramatic and completely unbelievable, not sure if it was the writing with it's cliche lines or the narrator with her breathy reading... I was disappointed after enjoying the beginning of this series. This was a let down. Would not recommend.

Great finish!

Another well written story! I really enjoy how every book played off of each other. I almost felt like there could be a whole nother series. It took me some time to get use to Tanaka's voice because there was so much emphasis on the end of her words but eventually, it was easy to get used to. I'm looking forward to reading more by this author/narrator team!

Love this series

I have listened to all 5 books and enjoyed them all! The narrator is amazing and her knack for accents helps suck you into the plot. I found the characters a bit annoying and predictable at times but that didn’t stop me from binge listening! Enjoy!!
