Great book, hard to put it down. Like reading a milder version of the GOdfather saga. The story was pulse pounding, intriguing, suspenseful, action filled, romantic and sexy. I have read five of these books and I am getting ready to start the next one on the Medlov faily

Unlike many of the bwwm books out there, this one totally captured my attention. A good portion of that is due to the fact that there weren't any extreme grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors!! Yes!! Finally! And yes, people do pay attention to stuff like that when they are reading. Not to mention the story itself was totally captivating. I couldn't put my nook down. I loved the characters. (Yes, I know it's fake and all, but it was nice to let my mind believe for a moment that this was real.) As the hero, Dmitry totally lived up to his part; a dreamy Russian mob boss with a no-nonsense attitude within his organization, who begins to develop a soft spot for the young and beautiful heroine, Royal. Wanting more out of life, he planned leaves the mob business for her, but it's turns out to be much more complicated. The ups and downs of this book, had me feeling for Royal. I loved the character development and I liked that there was a significant age gap between Royal and Dmitry (something about that just seemed right). All in all, it was explosive! Well done Latrivia Nelson! Well done indeed!

Didn't expect much, but liked this book. it was a page-turner. Definitely plan on reading the rest of the series. Hats off to publisher re the cautionary warning on contents and age-appropriateness. Yes, it's violent and a lot of sex, but no more than I expected since I knew it was about mafia and not saints.

For a series starter, Dmitry's Closet is absolutely amazing. This is combination of mafia/ IR romance that just grabbed me from the first chapter and truly hated to see it end. I think the only thing that kept me from crying at the end was knowing that there are more books to follow. Dmitry is the baddest bad guy hero that I love to love, and Royal the innocent but not too naive heroine that I couldn't help but root for. The relationship building between Dmitry and Royal was very sweet. The tension in this novel kept me on my seat! I love Latrivia S. Nelson's style of writing and look forward to giving many of her novels a try.

I loved this book. It was very different and it took you into the underground world of the Russian mafia, something I knew nothing about! I like the character of Renee, but I didn't quite like how naieve (spelling) and unaware she was about what was happening arund her, especially how she allowed Dmitry to continue to shower her with extremely expensive gifts. Maybe I'm old school in that area, but I need more than gifts from you to show how much you care. Dmitry is a total and complete alpha male and extremely SEXY and extremely TALL! It's not every day that I see a 7 foot man unless he's a professional basketball player, so trying to imagine Dmitry and Royal together was a bit of a stretch for me! All in all very good book and I can't wait to finish reading all of the stories.
