Overview

One kill is all it takes for her to be mine.

She’s just a pawn in the Bratva’s games. A virginal prize, exchanged from one boss to another. Her perfect curves and that sparkling smile, she’d be deadly if she hadn’t been sheltered from the mafia's wicked world.

Now she’s being thrust into it.

A marriage to a man I know has a terrible temper and a cruel sense of torture.

She deserves better. Better than him.

Better than me.

But I never said I’d save her out of the goodness in my heart.

I’ll save her. I’ll protect her.

And I will claim her. Even if it means the wrath of every family in Brighton Beach descends upon me.

Suspense, action, raw emotion I can be sure to get a sexy story full of suspense with lots of action each time I pick up a book by Alexis Abbott. Her characters are vivid, the emotions and turmoil are raw and real, and a plot that gets your heart pounding. Killing For Her did not disappoint and had a wonderfully satisfying ending. Anastasia is sheltered by her father, and although she has an idea his business has a criminal aspect to it, she is unaware she is a Bratva princess soon to be married to her father’s business partner. Nikolai wants revenge for what Anastasia’s father and his business partner did to his family. Now that he’s worked his way up to being the best enforcer, it’s time to act. When Anastasia learns the truth, she and Nikolai end up working together. You will be turning the pages as fast as you can for such a thrilling story from beginning to end. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

No Regrets, Only Action This is a well-written, very intriguing story that inexplicably links Anastasia and Nikolai from the very first moment they gaze into each other’s eyes across a crowded airport. Anastasia is on her way to an arranged political marriage, while Nikolai has a long awaited mission to complete. Fate though has other plans and its intervention bring some quite surprising revelations for all. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would have no hesitation in recommending it. Nikolai, as a contract killer, chose his path in life for a reason. Nestor Koroleva and Liev Ovechkin, rival Bratva families, believe Nikolai to be their secret weapon; little do they know he is playing both sides. Nikolai’s revenge is at hand and Brighton Beach will fall for what they have done to him. Nikolai knew Nestor was bringing his daughter into the country, but cannot believe she has had such an immediate effect on him. Anastasia Koroleva may be a spoiled brat and a Mafia Princess, but she is vulnerable and has not had a hand in a single one of the heinous crimes her father has committed. Nikolai’s plans have not changed, but Anastasia’s arrival is a new development; she is as much a victim in all this as everyone else. Nikolia didn’t plan on having to act so soon, but time is working against him now. Nikolai always picked his own contracts; the men whose lives he takes are the worst of the worst, but this one is personal for many reasons. But the moment Nikolia spots Anastasia, he can see the emotions running through her mind; fear, anxiety, desperation, determination. Abandoning his plan, abandoning his chance at revenge he has waited so long for, Nikolia saves Anastasia instead. Months of plotting and weeks of preparation are gone; Nikolia has never pulled out of a job like this before or done it so recklessly. It is certainly a setback. At 18-years old, Anastasia has spent her whole life in the role of a spoiled sheltered little rich girl, but she is also resourceful, smart and attentive; never imagining there would come a day when she might actually make use of the things she has picked up from her father. Nevertheless, nothing she has done or seen has come even close to preparing her for this moment right now. A week ago, Anastasia found out that her father, who has doted and cared for her, her entire life, has been plotting against her for years; grooming and preparing her for a fate she has no say in and for what; money and power. Now, as well as panic and pain, there is the sense of betrayal. Safe with Nikolia, Anastasia is looking for answers; they should be enemies, but Anastasia is young, frightened and desperate for attention and Nikolia promises to keep her safe and protected. As the two spend more time together and form an attachment, they reveal the lives they have led. Nikolia knows he has to tell Anastasia the truth about her father and what needs to happen, but Anastasia will not accept what Nikolia is suggesting; her only option is to confront her father, or get proof. Returning to her childhood home, Anastasia finally discovers not only the undeniable truth, but something much more sinister; now she has to play her father at his own game. But where will this lead her and what of Nikolia; will they ever have a life together? A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book and my comments here are my honest opinion.

Anastasia is the daughter of Nestor Koroleva who is the head of one of the most powerful families in the Bratva. She has been pampered and sheltered her whole life and is about to graduate from high school and has dreams of going to University. She has just found out her father has arranged for her marriage to Liev Ovechkin, a man she has always called Uncle and her father’s age. Nickolai is a hitman for both the Koroleva and Ovechkin families. When Anastasia is visiting her new fiancée she finds out information about him that frightens her. Nickolai helps her to escape but he has his own reasons for doing so. As they search for the truth they become closer, but Anastasia must decide who to trust before it is too late? This a sexy, suspenseful story filled with twists that you won’t be able to put down. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

What another interesting story that Alexis Abbott has brought us once again. She never fails to bring us one amazing story after another. I can not imagine what it was like for Anastasia to be living in this false reality. To think you had a father that loved you and wanted the best for you to find you were nothing more then property that he could sell. To find out your father was not the man you thought he was had to be crushing and the fear she must of felt to given to a man to marry that she looked to as a second father. In this story Anastasia will have her eyes open in so many ways. It had to make her doubt herself when it come to knowing who to trust but I love how she did not let thats stop her in putting her trust in Nikolai. Nikolai was this sexy hitman for the Bratva. I guess he had his revenge all planned out until he saw her. It was like Nikolai wasn’t even living before he met her now she will become his everything. Something for him to love and protect. I love the chemistry between these two. Not only sexually and trust me there are plenty steamy parts in this story but they were connected on a deeper level. They worked well together and this will help them on more then one occasion. This was a great story and glad I got a chance to read the book.

We’re back with the Russian Bratva again, and I have to say, this is one of my favorites. I totally fell for the bad a** killer Nickolai. He’s quite intense, very precise, but there’s something else to him. And Anastasia is innocent and sweet, with an underlaying strength. There is action and drama, and some intense chemistry. Definitely a must read!

Alexis Abbott has given us another page turner. Once I started reading Nikolai and Ana’s story, I couldn’t stop. Nikolai is a hitman for both the Koraleva and Ovechkin families. When Ana and Nikolai first see each other, the chemistry is there. Then, Nikolai tells her some bad news about her dad. Of course she doesn’t believe him and she leaves. Is this the end or will they get their happily ever after? Grab your copy and get ready to get sucked into the Bratva.

Nikolai is a top assassin and is revered as such. He also has an agenda-Revenge. Anastasia is finally home after spending most of her life in boarding schools. It's been lonely, but she's just graduated high school and contemplating her future. Anastasia is spoiled and priveledged. She is the daughter of Nestor Koroleva, head of the powerful Koroleva family of Brighton Beach. Nestor Koroleva is a powerful and deadly man, but when it comes to his daughter, he becomes a doting, loving father, one who wants Anastasia to do his bidding. Nestor has arranged for her to marry and just like that, all her dreams and aspirations are crushed. Thoughts of college and a future are replaced with a life without love to a husband who is twice her age. A chance meeting brings Nikolai and Anastasia face to face, but they are quickly torn apart.
