I liked the sound of the synopsis for this book and it seemed like a story that I would be very much into. I thought it started out okay but I soon got rather confused as to what was happening. This put me off a bit of continuing reading. I wasn't too keen on the writing either. Normally this would be a type of book I would like but I just couldn't get into it. I might give the book another try in the future though.
Reagan O' Callahan at 22 was struggling as it was. With working as a waitress and becoming the breadwinner for her crumbling family the last thing she anticipated was to be knocked sideways into inconvenience, from blow to blow Reagan was barley keeping her head above water until "he" came along. It was just supposed to be one night which might have led to a few more but before she could get her grasp on the situation just like the shadows he was gone. Fast forward a few years and the shadow starts to reappear and now a little bit more tainted at 26 Reagan was slowly drowning in her own emotions.
Niklaus Volkov aka Klaus was a nobody and wanted to stay that way but one life altering moment made him into a prince a Volkov prince at that. Cursing the day he got tangled in false accusation by enemies, Klaus swore to take revenge. After being trained by an unknown autocrat, now at 28 Klaus or Red was ready to begin his hunt, what he wasn't ready for was a red haired siren. It was one night which became quite a few, then he disappeared but now that he's back he needs a little more then just her attention.
This life was now his whether he wanted it or not but the only difference was that now an innocent was caught between the war or was it the mysterious King makers plan all along. C.O.D.A. painted red, black and blue this was much more then the Vory v Zakone or the Russian Bratva.
He was sure he wasn't capable of feeling again and she swore to do right by herself but with not just the Russians at play , a little touch went a long way.
Now here were some reasons why I didn't give it full jars cause no doubt the story was on point but somethings made me go Whaaaa, whereas at moments the scenario was played lowkey even though it had potential to be so grueling and you know how much I love mafia action, moving on though this can be read as a standalone but I HIGHLY prescribe *yes prescribe* that you read the Volkov series first. For someone not bothered by several sections of the book solely based on the Volkov series it's grand to move on but if you're like me and you end up reading the same page thrice to make sure the vodka didn't kick in early I'd rather you heed my warning and read the Volkov books first but then again this is my opinion *no seriously listen to me* cause if not
Any who as far as content & H/H are considered the book is like nutella either you gonna love it and base your life solely around it or it'll make you feel like meh *I'm looking at you Jess* either way the one thing that will definitely spike your interest is the bonus chapter named CODA and coda basically means something that concludes or summarises a certain event usually on a individuals interest or perspective, now that got my ears perking because a) the author has stated that at the end of every mercenaries book *I think there at least 7* a bonus chapter will be given and it'll be about the kingmaker and b) im fecking curious, from what I've read so far the kingmaker isn't the only one playing a game and it's hard to pin him down as a good or bad character just yet it's still got me thinking, who is he, where does live , is he broken , is he hot , good shag , family or friends , more importantly does he have a kitchen aid and can I borrow it basically all the necessary details about the oh so mysterious kingpin and some dude with a posh name. Even though Niklaus and Reagan were grand someone else stole the show, but for what it's worth I'll patently be continuing the series. It's a good book with a great story line but it's like salt and vinger crisps , you need an acquired taste. Overall i guess me less then stellar rating was due to the fact that some parts of the book i didn't get at first but then finally when i got where it was headed I kinda got the *spoiler alert* of the other series get what I mean but still its a book worth trying if you want some good russian loving.That's it I guess.
This involves mobsters from Russian to Alabamian with instincts to torture and kill even women.
So Nicklaus is seeking revenge and becomes good at his job but he must also answer to other people which means he's a hired killer.
Everything us going well until he meets and falls in love with Reagan who ends up being in the middle of a mob war.
We did get some romance but this was more to do with the affairs of mobsters.
Well written but with hell of a lot people involved.
I completely fell in love with Niklaus and Reagan. They were perfect for each other.
I loved the danger through out all of this book. It had my heart racing all the time.
Looking forward to the next one!
