Overview

It is 1995, four years after Ukraine has declared independence.

Lena Petrenko cares little about her country or her miserable life. As the daughter of a racketeer, she has seen enough violence and has shut the whole world out. With her baby doll, she lives in her bedroom and immerses herself in fairy tales, creating her own happy endings.

When her father forces her to attend his cage fights, Lena finds herself caught up in the brutality when she is claimed as the winner's trophy. Her terrifying champion is nothing like the prince of her stories. He is every bit the beast and she is hardly a beauty.

Lena soon learns that there is more to this stranger than his hard exterior. He has a dark history and an agenda that somehow involves her, but behind all the muscle beats a tender heart. As she begins to face her own terrible past, she finds him to be an unlikely ally, evoking everything she has buried deep inside, including her passion.

As her feelings for him deepen, Lena finds herself contending once again with a violent world. Now her captor must become her saviour, at the risk of losing each other, or losing their lives.

I have to say this might be the first book I’ve wanted to give a higher rating than a 5. I was little put off as I read in the beginning that it wasn’t the first of the series and surprised that the author would ask me to read this one first (PS Naughty Reviewers). So the book, I was a little confused initially, but the story quickly came into view. You learn quite a lot and I was almost scolding the author- “you gave too much away” haha Much to my surprise, the tables would turn by the end, but I am getting far ahead of myself. I fell in love with Jahn immediately, and how could you not. I think everyone would love to find a man that has his protective qualities that are never crossing the line of condescension. And Lena breaks down his exterior, shattering what he thought he was. There are a boatload of characters, but each has its place and sometimes I thought, this was expected and others I was surprised. So the twists and turns will lead you around to new and intriguing characters. This is an author that makes you fall in love with some the characters and want to read more about them. As much as I hated the ending, it’s not one that will make you toss your Kindle against the wall. There is POV/head hopping, but she has a knack of doing it exquisitely. My only crit if you could call it that, is that it is set in Ukraine and the author is from England. So the dialog slips into “English words”; for example: ‘arse’, ‘boot’ – for a car, and other slang. It’s not enough to make me rate the book less, but perhaps something to think about when writing dialog for other countries. I really hope people pick up this book. I will certainly be recommending it to a group that I know would enjoy it. I promise you will be happy reading this one my friends!
