What's worse than wanting the one person you can never have? How about finally getting them. Don't get me wrong the sex was great, but everything that came after? Yeah, it's like they say, be careful what you wish for.
My brother made a deal that didn't go as planned. Now I have to get back what's ours and pretty boy Jacoby is the tool to make that happen. I'll torture and use him until I get what I want, then I'll toss him aside like the rest.
A motorcycle club and a Mafia family shouldn't make deals. Someone's bound to lose. Family, friends and hearts, nothing's safe in a world fueled by drugs, money and sex.
WARNING: Ruslan Belikov and Jacoby Richards may not be for everyone. They are two dominant men thrown into an impossible situation. Some readers may find their story makes them uncomfortable. If you don't like dark and dirty mafia bosses who use torture and sex to get their way, turn back now. You have been warned.

Where do I even start! I absolutely Loved the emotional turmoil between Ruslan and Jacoby - The storyline is intense and carries an air of tenebrosity that tested even my resolution - and I spend a lot of time in the deep end of the "dark romance" genre The Characters - Jacoby just clicked for me - He was strong emotionally and definitely contained the heart of a survivor while at the same time he emitted an innocence to him that called to me - I wanted to protect him, hold him, let him know it was going to be okay. He was loyal to a fault - yet IMO his loyalty was misplaced and at times abused. Not by Ruslan (you have to read it ) Scar was Jacoby's best friend and blood relation to the club president. And maybe Jacoby had a crush on him and suffered a bit with hero worship. The two were practically inseparable since childhood - there is a whole story to that -again though, you got to read it Ruslan is Heartless - Vicious and runs his crew with an iron hammer - As the leader of the local mafia he has no qualms with erasing little problems as well as larger ones > Permanently - I must say his methods can be a bit "picturesque". I believe there is so much more to him than what we are given and I truly hope we are given some insight to his psyche Victor is Ruslan's brother and a true psychopath - you think Ruslan has a few screws loose wait till you see how Victor plays - He is just plain scary. There is a few more characters that play secondary roles within the storyline many I firmly believe will be key players in the series The story is fast paced and keeps the reader on edge (I read this in one sitting) from the opening scene to the "WTH just happened" and "I still have so many questions" ending - Yes I was a bit upset with the closing scenes - Am I being spoiled? Possibly - Do I have a chit load of questions with no answers? Most definitely. Do I want book two now? Yes A quick ending note on a physical level this story is HOLY H E L L what did I just read - Please Please if true dark romance that leaves little to the imagination and tests your every boundary is not your thing - Might I suggest you pass on this one
4 Steamy Stars Review by Lisa Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog If you are looking for a m/m mafia romance that will melt your panties, this is the book for you!! First in the Belikov Crime Family series is Bad Deal by Faith Ryan and Ember-Raine Winters. What a collaboration this one is!! From the first word to the last, (which I didn't expect to be a cliffhanger), Bad Deal is fast-paced, electric and dark with off the charts chemistry that leaves you wanting more. So well written that you instantly become sucked into their world then it’s over before you know it leaving you with a bit of a book hangover. The warning alone that comes with the synopsis should have you intrigued: “WARNING: Ruslan Belikov and Jacoby Richards may not be for everyone. They are two dominant men thrown into an impossible situation. Some readers may find their story makes them uncomfortable. If you don't like dark and dirty mafia bosses who use torture and sex to get their way turn back now. You have been warned.” JR thought he knew what he wanted. However, when faced with wanting someone he shouldn’t, he realizes he knows nothing. The path he is now on leads to excitement, heartbreak and all the other things that come along with it. Ruslan is the top of the mafia chain. He likes what he likes and will take what he wants. But when his brother’s deal goes wrong, his life will change forever.
