This is a very dark and disturbing story. It is also well written. It took me on a strange and erotic journey. The characters were flawed and exceedingly human. I loved the slow evolution of the relationship between Talia and Alexei. It was heart wrenching and yet I could not turn away. Kudos to the author for her treatment of a touchy subject.Recommended to all who don’t mind human trafficking or mafia stories.

Our Blog was given this book in exchange for an honest review.
I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away.
Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged.
Nothing scares me anymore.
He makes the numbness go away.
He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers.
A gilded prison.
A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to.
He thinks he’s caged me, but soon…
I’m going to fly.
I live by a code. The Vory code.
In this mafiya world, there are traditions.
She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything.
She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes.
What she can’t know is that I see her better than most.
She wants to fly.
But I’m going to clip her wings.
And make her my wife.
