“WOWWWWWW! What just just happened? What did I just read? Holy cow. V.F. Mason knows exactly what she’s doing and how to pull her readers in. A little bit of romance, a LOT of want, a dash of sadistic thoughts, a huge helping of possessiveness and you have yourself Pakhan’s Rose.” ~Engaging Secrets
“TOTAL Perfection!!!!!!! Flawless, immaculate, incomparable!!!! The Pakhan!!!” ~Expresso
Holy cow, I don’t even know where to start! This book is sexy, suspenseful, thrilling and will keep you on the edge of your seat. The book is about the dark and gritty world of the mafia and have some elements that are disturbing so be prepared going into the book. With this book blew my mind, the author did a fabulous job and I can’t wait for the second part of the story.
Dom is the Pakhan of the Russian Mafia (Bratva). He is also the twin brother of Sociopath. Everyone thought Dom was dead after he was stabbed trying to escape with his brother from their captors as a child. He is in the states to settle a score with some demons from his past when he first lays eyes on Rosa. He claims Rosa as his from day one and will stop at nothing to take the woman he has claimed back home to Russia to be his wife.
Rosa is a mafia “princess” here in the states. Her father has her hidden away for her safety after she was abducted 5 years ago. When she first meets Dom, she is instantly attracted but fights her attraction. There are instant sparks between the two and finally she gives into the attraction and agrees to dating Dom. When danger strikes again she finds herself being whisked away to a plane bound to Russia with a man she can’t seem to say no to.
I loved these two characters. They both have suffered horrific events in the past but have managed to somehow move on but it is only when they come together as a couple that they truly discover who they are meant to be. The end of the book had me screaming and crying but the author does leave promise of a brighter ending for these two in the cliffhanger for the next installment.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspense. I received an eARC of this book compliments of the publisher in exchange for my honest review and opinion. All ratings and opinions stated are my own.
