Vengeance Aside is a prequel to Nancy Haviland’s Wanted Men Series. I have read every book in the series and am a huge fan. I have very mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, I can always appreciate a brooding and lethal mobster. On the other hand, I like my books to have some realistic elements regardless of the fact that it is fiction. There is just so much in this book that is unrealistic that I struggled with even finishing it. That’s significant because I have been waiting a long time for the next book in this series which would have featured different characters. Vengeance Aside is about Lukas Zavrazin who is the advisor to his Russian Mobster father Kostya Zavrazin and their bratva in Houston, Texas. Lukas and his younger brother Samuel grew up in the mob life but their parents were loving people and are nothing like one would expect. A near fatal gunshot to Kostya forces him to pressure Lukas to get married and have children. The request comes as a sort of a dying wish so Lukas is desperate to make the wish come true. Samuel comes up with the idea of introducing Lukas to a young lady that works at the nightclub that Samuel owns and Lukas is a silent partner. Her name is Magdalena “Dale” Vaner. Dale doesn’t do relationships because of her very loveless and tragic childhood. She just wants to have a baby so she has something that could never leave her. When Lukas lays eyes on Dale, it’s love at first sight but Dale will not acknowledge it. It doesn’t help that Lukas is already talking marriage and babies within hours of their meeting. Plus, Lukas even kills someone in front of Dale to protect her honor. She freaks out but not enough to run away. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Without giving too much away, Dale sees all of these warning signs but ignores them all and moves forward with their relationship. I’m all for a good happily ever after but this one was inconceivable from start to finish. I did enjoy the action in and out of the sheets. I could also appreciate the message that the author was trying to convey. I just didn’t believe any of it. I sure hope that the next book gets back on track. **Received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest unbiased opinion.**
