WOW, my friends! I did a super squeal of excitement when this hit my kindle. I knew from the blurb and the fact that it was written by an amazingly talented duo like A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight, that we were in for greatness. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, raw, sinister and gritty. It will grab you from the very beginning with this phenomenal combination of unbelievably hot tension and edge of your seat suspense. Get ready to be simultaneously fanning yourself and frustrated.
Levka Antonov was both her Prince Charming and her Villian. He was gorgeous and god like with his power. He was as delicious as he was dangerous. He was feared! When he wanted something he got it, and he decided that he wanted Katerina to be his “Katya.” They hit it off and it was everything more than even he could have predicted! He knew she was hiding things but he had ways of getting to the bottom of it and he would find out exactly who and what she was hiding.
When something in his business goes down and Katerina disappears, Lev is both concerned and angry at her for disappearing. There are a lot of speculations and distrust surrounding her from his Family business associates, will he abide by the orders he’s given when her location is discovered after a few years? However, will an unexpected secret game changing curveball Katerina has been carting with her for three years, throw a monkey wrench in all of Lev’s plans? Just how exactly will Lev punish her?
“I’m taking back what’s Mine”
Katerina Blake was a beautiful broken and poor young woman, but she’s hiding a troubled and scarred past beneath first glance. One no one could even imagine. She was such a strong and resilient character. I loved her so much. My heart broke for the little girl she’d been and what she endured as a child, but it fist pumped at the strong kick ass woman she’d become. Now, when she met Lev, it was a collision of hotness y’all. Good god!
Their chemistry was overwhelming. She was strong but he brought out a submissive side to her that she didn’t know existed, holy hell! 🔥 She would do anything he said. She fell hard and fast, understandably so. But when a devastating tragic event happens and he is to blame on the same day she finds out life changing news. She must do what she needs to protect more than just herself.
She could have cowered but she didn’t. She did what she had to. She is the kind of character I FLOVE, my friends! She goes through all the emotions and through such growth as a character and it makes for such an amazing read. You get to see her at her lowest then go to seeing her in her most protective and survival mode. She.is.just.fantastic! 🙌🏻😍🙌🏻
