TITLE - Chosen by the Badman
Konstantin Skumin has never wanted to sign on the dotted line for a woman of his choosing. While it is the Bratva way, it’s a tradition he refuses to practice. A badman with desires both dark and relentless, he is the opposite of gentle. Even so, it cannot be denied that he harbors dreams of romantic notions he will not willingly compromise.
Kiska Barysheva has resigned herself to her fate. In three years’ time, what little freedom she has as a Bratva printsessa will be ripped away from her. The ink has long since dried, and she will be wed to the man of her father’s choosing. The only dream she has to cling to will be short lived, but she refuses to take for granted a minute of her dancing career—her small glimmer of happiness.
Yet, when the scheming of their fellow Russian badmen puts Kiska in Konstantin’s care, everything they thought they wanted changes. Their love is forbidden—his touch worthy of death--but neither one of them has the strength to say no. Their hearts have chosen, and they can’t let go.
Another brilliant Bravta novel! I just can't get enough of these characters. This author has created a world you'll want to lose yourself in. This book is a stand alone, but other previous couples are featured in it. This book has romance, hot, kinky, sex, and action.
The plot of this book was probably my favorite. What happens when you fall in love with someone you can't have? That's what these characters are facing. How do they deal with their feelings? Are they destined to be miserable? You'll have to read to find out.
Kiska is such a wonderful character. She is independent and strong, which is important for her character. While life might not be going her way, she still tries to stay positive and focus on what she already has. Then you of Konstastin. He is such a ruff and gruff character. He is what you imagine a Bravta member to be. Even so, he also has real feelings behind his tough exterior.
The heat in this book is over the top. Expect raunchy and kinky sex throughout this book. Kon is a man of particular tastes and I love how the author made sure to note that nor everyone would like this type of play, but that Kiska does. I feel that was very important to the storyline.
The author has a wonderful writing style. The dual point if view gives us necessary perspective. The pace is steady. The author gives each character in this series their own unique personality, which is wonderful. I loved this story.
Overall, this is a wonderful story. I loved every aspect of it. I really hope we get to keep living in this universe because I've come to love this group of men. If you haven't yet, go get lost in this world!
Writing style: 5/5
