I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.
Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged.
Nothing scares me anymore.
He makes the numbness go away.
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers.
A gilded prison.
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to.
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon…
I’m going to fly.
I live by a code. The Vory code.
In this mafiya world, there are traditions.
She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything.
She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes.
What she can’t know is that I see her better than most.
She wants to fly.
But I’m going to clip her wings.
And make her my wife.
**This is a DARK mafia romance. A full-length standalone novel with HEA and no cheating.**
THIS SERIES CONTINUES TO BLOW ME AWAY!
I am absolutely loving this series
Great characters. Alexei is a Russian mafia boss and Talia is the friend of Mack who went missing in the first book Crow.
Each book is interconnected and some scenes from Alexei or Talias point of view you revisit as other characters from previous books interact with them. For example when Talia calls Mack to let her know she is OK in the first book you see this from Talia's side and the build up to her making that call.
I'm loving it. You don't have to read in order and each can be read as a standalone but I recommend reading from the first book Crow.
The first two books are Irish mafia whereas Ghost is Russian Mafia based.
The back story for both characters tugs on the heart and the fact they see a likeness in each other and Alexei rescues Talia from her captors is a gripping and heartwarming story.
It's gritty there are scenes of rape and it's on the dark side but I love that about it, its raw,gritty and leads to a well deserved hea.
A Zavarelli was a new author for me before Crow and I can't wait to jump into other books in this series as well as those that aren't
Ghost has everything I would look for in a Mafia read
AUDIO: I listened to this on audio, previous books I thought the narrator was brilliant at the Irish accent and going from male to female but with Alexei she reverted back to the Irish twang with some sentences but it did not spoil the story.
The way he is staring at me disturbs me on a different level. He isn’t just looking. He’s seeing. All of my darkest secrets. The part of me that nobody ever gets to see. But he does. My armor means nothing to him.

Nobody has ever looked at me the way he’s looking at me at this moment. Like I’m his possession. Like if anyone else were to touch me, he’d break both their legs and an arm for good measure.
