I simply can't get enough of this series!! The dangerous and deadly clash of the Russian Bratva and Italian Mafia continues with the forbidden love of Kaz and Violet. After months of separation, they're reunited. Of course, my man, Kaz has a plan and now's the time to put it all into action: to keep Violet, take down his father (head of the Bratva) and neutralize Alberto, the boss of the Gallucci Mafia. No small feat!
"He started a war. I plan to finish it."
This story takes us from New York to Chicago where we meet the Boykov's, I seriously liked these boys. I hope there's going to be stories on this Russian outfit. Here things simmer as moving parts are put into play.
Then the rubber hits the road as things heat up. Trouble comes to them and the chase begins.
Violet and Kaz were as intense and hot as ever. I love these two and how they work against all odds. The reality of their future also begins to take hold as Kaz's plan unfolds.
"She'd always choose to walk toward him - she'd already done that several times. There was no walking away. There would never be any walking away."
"You don't have to be good enough for everyone else, Violet, only him."
You could see as this book unfolded where it was going, what it was culminating to...I wanted to take Kaz, sit him down and have a chat. As much as I love that man, I wondered WTF as the inevitable hurled towards them!!!
"Blood always leaves the brightest stains where the snow falls."
Again, the ending leaves us hanging, like seriously hanging! My heart's in my throat and I'm grasping for air.
No surprise, I knew it'd be bloody and treacherous, but Kris and London know how to toy with my emotions! I'm in desperate need of book 3! I highly recommend this series if you're a lover of mafia romance, forbidden love and are not afraid to venture into dark and scary places!

Kaz watched as Violet brushed by him, but instead of heading up to their bedroom, she went to the living room. One delicate hand held the wine glass, but his gaze had strayed down from it to the curve of her hip, swaying just enough to get his attention every time.
His thoughts should have been on Vasily or even Alberto since he had been bold enough to send his men in Boykov territory, but the second his gaze strayed to the bare skin of her midsection where her shirt didn’t quite cover, he didn’t want to think of anything else but her.
Pushing off the wall, Kaz crossed the floor in a few long strides, catching her around the waist before she could sit. Instead, he drew her down over the top of him, her legs on either side of him. Plucking the glass from her hand, he set it on the floor beside them.
It still baffled him sometimes … the way he felt when his name fell from her lips. Maybe because, even when it was innocent, he could still hear the way she moaned it when he was fucking her.
He lived for that sound, and though it had only been days, he already missed the sound of it.
Before she could finish whatever she thought to say, his fingers had drifted from her waist until they spanned out over her throat.
And there it was …
That slight hitch in her breath as he pressed just a bit harder. The way her lips parted …
Outside their bedroom, she was fragile to him, someone he wanted to protect, but here, when he had her beneath his hands, he wanted to see how much she could take before she broke.
Pulling her toward him, he didn’t kiss her lips but ran his lips along her jaw, feeling her skin heat up as he bit at the cord in her neck. She arched into him, but he held her exactly how he wanted, dragging the straps of her top and bra off her shoulder and pushing the material down until he could get her breast in his hand, her nipple between his fingers as he squeezed.
A sharp, needy sound tore from her, her hips grinding further into his erection. He could practically feel how hot her pussy was beneath those shorts she wore, and he was dangerously close to ripping the fucking things off just so he could get in there, but he reined it in, contented with the process.
Releasing his hold on her, he drew back just far enough to drag the shirt over her head and unsnap her bra. His hands full, he didn’t hesitate to kiss her now. Even as he drew her bottom lip into his mouth, pulling at it, the answering whine made his dick ache.
One hand curled around her neck to keep her in place as his other pushed its way into her panties and down to her begging, slippery flesh.
Fuck, she was already shaking, and he hadn’t even touched her properly. How easy it would be to get her off right then …
“Do you want to come, krasivaya?” He asked the question against her mouth, her lips parting with a gasp. She was trying to concentrate, he knew, seeking out his fingers to give her more, but he didn’t give in. Not yet. “I need an answer.”
Violet nodded, but as quickly as she did, she answered him with a quick yes, knowing his rule on needing to hear her.
“Then do something for me, hmm?”
“Get on your knees.”
