Not everyone born of Mafiya blood wants to be in the life.
I was determined to never go anywhere near it. Headed in the
opposite direction, I pushed away from my family and their legacy.
Until they needed me.
And then...so did she.
I got sucked in too deep, going after her and trying to save them all.
Now, there's no turning back. I'd do anything for my cousins, for Sasha.
After all, family is everything.
Complete standalone, HEA, NO cheating
A good story with Mafia involvements but a little disappointed.
About the plot;
Beau has abandoned his roots with the Russian Mafia and become a member of the police force. Beau still has lots of connections and is still welcomed by the Russian mafia along with other Mafia ties.
With time off from work Beau uses the time to continue to look for his cousins best friend who is believed to be taken by a sex trade years ago. Five years of dead ends and Beau finally gets an opportunity to go to an auction were he finds women being bid on.
Sasha and Beau first meet at the auction, Beau is drawn to her, she is also Russian and a slave. Weeks later Beau has the opportunity to bid on her.
Beau's main aim is to bring down this illegal business and with the help of other Mafia members they begin to plot.
Sasha and Beau get close, she's malnourished and weak, Beau Cares for her and she grows attached.
Sasha's clingy and bratty, as a reader I couldn't bond with her character at all, I expected her to be meek, timid but also strong for what she had been through but bratty and throwing tantrums when she doesn't get her own way?
Sasha's history didn't fit the personality she had been illustrated with.
When I first started reading this I thought the woman Beau had been searching for, for 5 years would be found and the plot was leading that way but no it wasn't the story I first envisaged, Sasha was a girl who stood out at the auction not the missing girl Beau has been searching for.
I feel more time in the story with the characters bonding, learning more about each other may of helped with my perception of the characters and helped me as a reader to feel a connection but more focus was on the sex trafficking destruction plans.
A good plot, not unique I've read this sort of plot before not to different.
Beau wasn't as Alpha as I like and Sasha wasn't the strong heroine I prefer in a book.
Good read, a plot with suspense, told in dual pov's and leads to a to sudden, and I felt rushed hea.
Those who like action an interesting story and Mafia reads will like.
