Emily is starting her new life, she's finally escaped her past and is looking to keep a low profile and this is fine until the first day of class when she meets the bubbly Avery, Avery turns out to be a great friend and drags Emily out of her shell, Emily meets Luka Tate Masterson and wow does he take her breath away, not only is he hot but he has the whole Russian accent thing going on, how's a girl to resist that.
Both Emily and Tate have secrets and what will happen when those secrets come out.
First let me say I absolutely loved the idea behind this and I really wanted to like it more but, yes there's always a but, firstly the writing wasn't brilliant, the conversations felt stilted and immature, now I'm well aware that I'm not the target audience for this book but my children and their friends are around this age and it just didn't feel right at all.
Also I didn't particularly like Emily and I know she's suffered horribly in the past but I just didn't buy it, she'd fly off the handle all the time, she's supposed to be worried about her past catching up with her but she can't even get round to making a single phone call to check and then she has a huge TSTL moment that I just couldn't get over.
So this book had potential but for me anyway it wasn't realised.
Mafia storyline but not too dark and gritty bit of a YA romance but was an entertaining read.
Contains strong abuse from an ex-partner.
it's through this friendship that Emily and Avery meet Cameron and Luka 'Tate'.
Tates father is the big boss of this Russian Mafia with Tate being a boss in his own right. the thing I really liked about this book was yes there was hints and talks of hit men and Mafia dealings with no real details or descriptions. I find that Sapphire keeps her story's more romance based than on the dirty nitty gritty side of the tale, which is why for me, I know that I'm always going to enjoy reading one of her books without getting rather squeamish or horrified by the detail described (i have a very active imagination).
there was also a twist to this tale that I didn't expect and has now raised questions in my mind about where the books will go from here and just how many of Tate and his crew will get to tell their own story.
loved the book and can't wait to read exposed which is book 2 in the Russian Mafia books and book one in the Oath Keepers MC
The characters were complex and well developed. Emily was very likable, and Tate was a perfectly written alpha male. (Back off, ladies, he's mine!) I liked that their relationship was passionate and HOT but went beyond just physical attraction.
This was the first book I've read by Sapphire Knight, and I have to say it's an outstanding book! I have already downloaded three other books in her Russkaya Mafiya series. Sapphire Knight has a new fan. My only complaint is that the book wasn't as well edited as it deserved, and that sometimes distracted me as I read.
I reviewed this book on behalf of A Book Lover's Emporium book blog.
Emily is running from something or someone, it's enough to make her terrified of making friends. She didn't plan on meeting Tate, sexy, tattoed, and hiding a few secrets of his own.....
This story takes us on the journey of them discovering each other and developing a relationship. Based on the mafia it does have some graphic violence in it and a harrowing story emily's past.
I really enjoyed this book, so much I had to keep reading them all until I had read all the ones available in the series!
