Series: Bratva Blood Duet #2
war I will win.
tell Konstantin my deepest fear, which is that I’ll be tainted by this forever, unable to move forward.
“No, you don’t. You can be normal again, though. You can go back to your life. To your dance classes with your neighbor, and helping your grandparents, and being generally kind and good. You had that walk on the wild side you craved, and you didn’t enjoy it. Lesson learned.”
It’s not a lesson learned, though, because I can’t stop craving him.
He’s my walk on the wild side, and I don’t want it to end. I tried to tell myself I did. Tried to convince myself I was done with him, but he pulls me back in each time. Having him so close to me, holding me, is pure torture.
I once thought he couldn’t be my shelter because he was the storm. Now I wonder if he’s really the jagged rocks guarding the bay. I’m in the bay, right in the eye of the storm, and it’s not me he’ll smash to bits, but anyone who gets close or dares to harm me.
I turn in the water until I’m facing him and study his face. He’s not classically handsome. His features are too hard, his body too big, his face too arrogant. He’s beautiful to me, though. Truly, breathtakingly beautiful. From the first moment I saw him, he stopped the clocks for me, and they haven’t started since.
Reaching up, I trace the outline of his jaw with one wet finger. He doesn’t move, but something subtle changes in him; he goes on alert. Like the predator he is, he watches me, eerily still, waiting, seeing if I’ll go ahead and offer myself up to him.
The one thing my books in both genres have in common are gritty themes, and alpha heroes who are damaged but oh-so-redeemable!
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
The finale of Bratva Blood Duet was action packed and left me wanting more.
Konstantin does not trust easily and the betrayal he endures makes him that much more paranoid and leaves him questioning so much. There is more than one war that Konstantin is fighting, and he needs to find a way to win them both and keep the woman that he can’t seem to forget.
Cassie is so afraid of the situation she finds herself in and she wants to go home, but she can’t if she wants to live. When Konstantin takes Cassie to Paris things get a bit more confusing for her. When danger finds her in Paris, she has to decide whether she can find a way to live with Konstantin or if she has to give him up for good. It’s a real battle in her mind.
I loved this finale of this Duet. I couldn’t wait to start it and hated to see that I had finished it. I want more of Konstantin, Cassie, Vasily, Bohdan, Andrius and the others. They bring this book to life and are very entertaining. Konstantin is a ruthless Pakhan and businessman. He will win this war if it kills him and he will protect Cassie at all costs while doing it. The men in this story were ruthless and cunning. I give this book a 5-star review and cannot wait for more of these characters. I highly recommend this Duet to readers that love to read books that lead to Alpha, strong men finding the one person that makes them question everything they believed about themselves. Konstantin and Cassie have more than one battle going on is this story and the outcome may surprise you.
