Publisher's Summary

Falling in love isn't a crime - but falling in love with a Russian mafia boss could be deadly.

Competitive tennis player Carter Cook wants a taste of freedom. Her overprotective father monitors every aspect of her life, so when he becomes employed by Vladimir Ivanov - a sexy Russian with an array of tattoos and an accent that weakens her knees - a bit of danger is within Carter's grasp. Behind her father's back, she enjoys spending time with Vladimir at his lavish estate. But is he really the upstanding businessman she believes him to be?

Vladimir Ivanov reigns as godfather of a Russian mafia crime ring.

Vladimir spent five years of his life in a Siberian prison camp and has earned every tattoo inked into his skin. He is a powerful man who gets what he wants, and after stalking the gorgeous tennis player for years - he wants Carter. A little charm melts her heart, and behind the scenes, he orders his henchman to track her every move.

He's a tattooed stick of dynamite ready to blow at the slightest spark.

As their romance reaches deadly levels, Carter senses something's not right. When she's lured into a compromising position at the hands of a shady European drug dealer, she calls in Boris, Vladimir's right hand man, to rescue her - without telling Vladimir. With his authority questioned, he sets out to teach Carter a lesson about loyalty she'll never forget.

When Carter realizes she's in too deep, she must fight for her freedom before the attraction turns fatal.

But the Russian mafia plays for keeps, and Vladimir's fierce lust to possess her spirals their romance out of control.

wow just wow **** spoiler alert*****

I love this book it is a series and it does end in a cliffhanger. This book is NOT a romance book. This is about a Russian mob boss who was obsessed with his dead girlfriend's little sister because they look alike. when he realizes her family has financial problems he comes to the rescue. There is a big age Gap between the two main characters. You can definitely tell he's attracted to her he tries to stay friends with her but he can't fight his feelings and she's too young to understand that he's a man and not a boy and he's very dangerous. He treats her like a queen his men treat her like property and only good for one thing. Alot of messed up stuff happens when he's not there. she never tells him what happens because they threatened her, she's dumb and she still stays with him . (My ass would have been so gone). She thinks everything is rainbows and butterflies when he's there to protect her, until he gets jealous over her dancing and then all hell breaks loose. He shows her his true colors. He gets drunk has a gun hit her then leaves her to the wolves (his men) to show her a lesson. He doesn't care what they do to her. (I almost died when that happened. I was so scared for her. I almosted stop listening, I was like WTF his truly crazy. There is no excuse for what he did you don't give the woman you love to a bunch of men who only think about one thing). she was left defenseless but she was able to convince someone to make a phone call to a man who did wind up helping her kind of. The cops found her she kept her mouth shut about what really happened (that's going to bite her in the ass in the long run because no one knows that they are seeing each other there relationship is a secret) . Her Russian jerk came in to the police station pretending to be all innocent and she was smart enough to tell him she never wanted to see him again and she deserves better, but he's obsessed with her so you will see how long that last.

.Very dark . possible triggers . alpha male . anti-hero . suspense . violence . obsession . age Gap . cliffhanger

This is not a romance novel

This should not be categorized as a romance. I will be sending this book back for a refund. I cannot figure out the good reviews. It is different but not a romance.

These people are crazy especially Carter

Would you try another book from Kat Shehata and/or Melissa Moran?

Not any time soon. I'll let a few years pass. Hopefully, here story plots would have gotten better. I don't have anything against the narrator. Melissa was the one of the two things that keep me reading. The other is me wanting to give an honest review of this book.

What was most disappointing about Kat Shehata’s story?

Carter was so annoying. The sad thing I think she reflects exactly how a sheltered girl at her age would be. That is one positive thing I can say about this book. The characters seemed plausible.

Did Melissa Moran do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes. Each character was well defined.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

This book was kinda like a mini soap. There is so much drama. Even though I new from chapter one that I didn't like the story, I kept listening to see how it will end.

Any additional comments?

Kinda feel bad for Vladimir. Carter needs more time to grow into an adult. He deserves better.
