MY STAR RATING
She was never supposed to walk into my club.
But she did.
I shouldn’t have looked twice at her.
But I did.
The criminal underworld is no place for a girl like her.
One night with Katerina isn’t enough, but men like me can’t afford to be weak.
So, I tell her to leave me behind.
She does, but not before she sees something she shouldn’t.
When she goes into hiding, it’s my duty to hunt her down.
I have a job to do, and she needs to disappear for good.
But four years later, Kat isn’t alone anymore.
And the little boy right beside her looks just like me.
MY REVIEW of: MINE by Natasha Knight & A. Zavarelli
Oh yeah, baby. This one was good.
Overbearing alpha male? Yup.
Sassy wee heroine with a dark past? Yup.
Explosive and toe-curling sex scenes? Mhmm.
Suspense that keeps ye turnin’ the pages? Also yup.
So, yeah. I enjoyed this one.
I loved the characters in this story and I could easily picture everything that was going on.
And who doesn’t love a possessive Russian mobster?
I don’t know why I’m so fascinated with these mafia stories.
I mean, I’m all like “Hell yeah, that would be awesome. The money and strong-willed men. Gimme, gimme, gimme”.
But in reality, I’d be a nervous wreck. Paranoid that someone was out to kill us all and terrified that I’d get “whacked” for running my mouth to the wrong person, ye ken?
Not to mention the arse-kicking my man would get for trying to control my every move.
There is only one room in the house where I will accept him telling me what to do…ye get me?
But Natasha Knight & A. Zavarelli have created this intense and passionate relationship between the two characters that I just can not get enough of it.
I just loved this girl. But Och, in the name of the wee man! Her past!
This poor girl does indeed have a dark story and it is heartbreaking.
She first meets Lev after she’s taken a dodgy pill at a night club and starts to feel off.
He takes her upstairs to rest while he keeps an eye on her.
She’s instantly attracted to him – and who wouldn’t be?
He’s an over 6-foot wall of brooding muscle!
Anyway, when she comes on to him he’s like “Nah, you’re out of it, love”, but in his own sexy accent, lol.
When they meet up together after she’s not under the influence tho?
Mhmm, he’s all for it.
He rocks her world…several times peeps! (I need me one of these men).
But then he’s a total prick to her and he’s like “okay, see ya never”.
She’s upset but tries to move on.
Then some crazy ass shit goes down with her bestie and she needs to run as far and as fast as he can.
Lev is a Russian mobster. He’s in the “family”, and he’s in deep. So when he sees Kat he wants her but doesn’t want to bring her into his dangerous world.
So what does he do?
He acts like a propper nitwit and “pumps and dumps” her. Treating her horribly to try and scare her away from his dangerous lifestyle.
Unfortunately, his uncle – who’s the big boss man btw – needs him to ‘take care’ of someone and this someone is Kat’s bestie’s father.
I’m not gonny say too much about what happens there for obvious reasons but it’s sooo well written.
Afterwards, he goes looking for Kat only to find she’s gone.
He’s pissed and then the hunt is on.
Then the book does this time jump thing (which I loved) and when he finally finds her she has a LOT to answer for.
I was right intae these scenes! So feckin’ good!
There’s spanking and biting and hair pulling, oh my! (that’s a Wizzard of Oz reference by the way. Just in case you didny catch it 🙂 )
He spins me around, putting my hands on the edge of the sink. “Don’t move.”He gets behind me so I can see him in the mirror. He pushes the hair off my neck and kisses my thudding pulse, then bites just hard enough to hurt as he slides one hand inside my jeans and panties and cups my sex. I moan with the contact, his fingers roughly kneading my clit, rougher than he was last night. “Lev.”I turn my head to kiss him. He tugs my wet jeans down over my hips and pushes me forward a little. I look at him looking down at me, then feel a hard smack. I gasp, meeting his black eyes in the mirror. “I should have spanked your ass for the night at the club, but I thought I gave you enough of a scare at the restaurant.”He smacks me again three quick slaps to the same spot. The sting is sharp and does more to turn me on than punish me. He grins, raking his fingernails over my ass. “You like this, Kat?”He spanks me again. “If I’d known…”I hear the zipper of his jeans, and a moment later, I feel his length at my back. “Watch. I want to see your eyes when I fuck you.”I turn to the mirror as he spreads my ass open, and I moan at the length of him as he rubs himself through my folds. “Fuck.”He sucks in a breath, and I’m panting. When I lean forward, he grips a handful of hair and tugs my head up. “I said I want to see your eyes when I fuck you.”
