Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.
I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.
Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.
If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?
Wow, I what a great book!! I’ve been in a dark, twisty romance mood for a while and can’t seem to get enough. And this hit the spot! I’ve also read Sordid and you don’t need to read the books in order. While both books are great, I enjoyed this one more. There was just something about Vasilije that made me growl. Maybe it was the fact that he smoked a J every once in while, or his simple gym room. Maybe it was the sweat pants… regardless, he was just so damn hot!! He was the definition of anti-hero, but damn was he still a hero to me!!
And don’t get me started on Oksana!! I have such a girl crush on her! When life handed her lemons that girl made the best lemonade ever!! Plus, she was hot as hell!! She handled the situation she got herself into with such grace. After all, behind every great man there is a great woman.
I enjoyed watching this story unfold and was so sad to see it end. I just wanted it to go on and on and on. I hope she keeps writing this series. One guy in particular I would really like to know more about. Or she could just keep writing about these two, cause what a power couple they make! Definitely on my list of top 2017 reads. I recommend this book to anyone who’s looking for their king with a side of kink.
