Dominik Petrov is the younger brother of Ivan Petrov the head of the Petrov Family Bratva. He and his brother are close, they even live together with cousins and Bratva members in an old monastery. Dominik has his job and he is particular about how it is done. When he runs into trouble one night while transporting their product, he has to find a way to get it back and keep the police from causing them more trouble. He needs to send a message that the Petrov’s will not take interruptions of their products by the police.
Lara Erdeli lives a life in hiding. She is hiding from a devastating past and trying to get retribution for that past. She loves art and is tired of being cooped up in a small flat by herself so much. When she finally gets the freedom she craves, her life will take a swift turn. The man protecting her and keeping her safe is the new Chief of Police in St. Petersburg. He is incorruptible and determined to clean the streets of the Bratva. He can’t be bought, but there may be a way to keep him off the Petrov Bratva’s backs.
I really loved this story. Dom is a great character. He is a tough man, a Bratva brother, but he also has a side that you would not expect to find. He falls hard for Lara and is determined to keep her and protect her. I enjoy the characters of this story as well as the other books in the series. They are entertaining to read. They’re loyal, deadly, and they are not afraid to do what is needed to ensure the safety of their family and loved one. I give this story a 5-star review and suggest that you read the entire series. I also read the Series Finale Epilogue, available at the end of the book, and loved it as well. I do wish that it had been longer though. If you are a reader of Mafia, Bratva, Alpha males, and strong women, you will love this series.
