⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 4 out of 5
The adopted son and Sovietnik to Marko Juric, Sven Kokot knows that he has to do his part for the family by marrying. However, he never thought he would be blindsided into the marriage. His bride to be is not happy about the arrangement and she’ll fight as hard as she can to avoid the marriage. She’s the niece of Ivan Sever, the head of the Sever crime family. The Sever and Juric crime families have a truce and to make it stronger a marriage is put forth.
When Sven’s betrothed comes to the alter, she is fighting her uncle, but she also looks pained. When Sven finds out why, he is angry. He may not want this marriage either, but he will not stand by and let anyone hurt what is his. Sven has a lot of obligations to his family; above all he must obey his Pakhan’s orders and when he keeps putting things off, he finds himself in danger from his adoptive father and Pakhan.
Ema Sever’s father took her and her sisters away from the family business, so they’ve been living their lives in Alaska, until she was taken from her family and told that she was to be married, tomorrow. She has a few reasons why she doesn’t want to leave her family and be married, but no one has listened or believed her in the past so now she will have to find a way to get back home to her sisters.
I really liked this story, and the characters were great. The story drew me in from the beginning and help onto me until the end. The betrayal, twists, and secrets only added to the story and Sven and Ema had a lot to overcome. I give the story a 4-star review and I look forward to Josip’s story next.
