Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.

I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.

Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.

If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?

Book Review: 4 Stars

four-stars

This is one of those books you long for in such a way it leaves you broken with all the anticipation. Ever since I read Sordid I have been on a look out for this second book in the series which can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading both books to have better knowledge and understanding for the characters and how they got to where they are today.

This is Vasilije and Oksana’s book and those two are such a complicated pair I don’t even know where to begin. Both driven by clear goals and determined to do everything it takes to get them closer to the finish line no matter the cost.

Both Vasilije and Oksana were presented in the perfect way for them in my opinion. I loved how strong and powerful both were and yet there was something soft underneath all that hard possessive posture. Their relationship started off crazy and ended up being just like it was bound to be.

The writing feels different and good but also very raw and brutal at times. This author is very brave for putting herself out there in this way.

Overall without risking exposing any spoilers I really liked this installment and can recommend it. I had a bit of difficulties in the first half of the book mainly because the events were for me predictable and I wished for more mystery but also eventful plot. It wasn’t until Vasilije confessed something that my attention was awoken and I was back in the game of the masterful intrigues created by Nikki Sloane.

Be aware that this is not your typical “girl meets boy and they fall in love and live happily ever after” kind of story. It’s way more complexed and just on the edge of darkness with no return. Keep an open mind and just dive into it and let it lead you along the way.I hope you enjoy it too.
