From USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author Michelle Heard, is a new STANDALONE, full-length MAFIA ROMANCE novel.

I wanted to be a painter. But that's just a dream because a mafia princess doesn't get to choose her future.

Still, I never let it get me down. I always try to make the best of everything.

Until I'm forced to go for brutal training, and I meet Nikolai Vetrov.

Forbidden and way too attractive, the man turns out to be my worst nightmare incarnated.

He's cold and ruthless, and I'm pretty sure there's no heart to be found in his chest, unlike mine that won't stop beating overtime at the mere sight of him.

Just because I flirted with him, he's dead set on making my life as miserable as possible.

And as if the hell I've been thrown into isn't enough, the worst thing possible happens to me. It strips me of my light and drops me into a darkness so suffocating there's no way for me to escape

There's a lot I can endure and overcome, but the trauma and Nikolai Vetrov are two things I can't handle. One of them is bound to be the end of me.

Unless a miracle happens, and let's face it, I'm well past the point of believing in miracles.

STANDALONE: A Mafia/Bratva Romance, standalone, full-length novel.

POV : Dual

Cliffhanger : None

Hero : Nikolai

Heroine : Abbi

Pace of the story : Moderate

Angst Rating : 5/10

Heat Rating : 5/10

Triggers Involved : Non Con , abuse , trauma

Plot Summary :

Abbi knows her dreams will never come true. Being a mafia princess comes with a price that you will never get to make decisions about your own life. Until it all gets even worse. Now she is stuck at an academy that is full of ruthless people and she has to train to be like them. That is until she meets her new teacher. Nikolai.

Nikolai knows what his destiny is and he is living his life like that. There is no place for distractions in his life. Certainly not of pretty little girls who don't know the danger she is playing with. If he decides to pursue her , there will be no saving her .

Overall Opinion :

I have been waiting for these two ever since I met them in the first book of this series. They were the side characters, but their chemistry was 🥹🔥

Nikolai and Abbi are in love. They are two people who couldn't be more different yet they are drawn to each other. This one is a standalone with a grumpy hero and Sunshine heroine plot and a lot of mafia vibes.

Totally recommending this one to all the contemporary romance loving people out there. It has a few triggers like non con , abuse , trauma and violence. Please keep that in mind before picking it up.
