The Life (The Russian Guns #2)
The mafia life is a dangerous one revolving around honor, duty, and greed—a troublesome thing like love isn’t meant to play a part, but no one follows the rules.
Surrounded by men waiting for the Russian mob boss to show weaknes ...more
I have to start this review by saying how much I loved the previous book 'The Arrangement' it had everything I look for in a read, romance, hot alpha male, intelligent beautiful female who doesn't make stupid decisions and I can't stress that last part enough, plus it had an interesting story that keep me hooked.
I couldn't wait to start this book so what went wrong?
Honestly I'm not sure I just felt it kind of lost its way somehow, we still have Anton and he's just as hot and loves Vivi ...more
This series has everything I look for in books! It has the family aspect, the mystery factor, the thrilling aspect, action packed, blinding love, great friendship, loyalty, betrayal, even some emotional scenes. (Anton and His father. or whenever he speaks of him will gets those eyes wet!)And on top of that the writing is flawless so it captures all those elements flawlessly.
I love how there were no exaggerations. You know how you always get those books where th ...more
The story picked up seven months into Viviana’s pregnancy.
Yes, I love Anton and Vine and there are still some mafia stuff that needs to be done, but I was a little disappointed actually. Of course, more blood were actually spilled but the overly love was too much for me it kinda come across as sappy for me. I mean, okay, I know Anton’s character and I actually the efforts he had gone through and the sweetness of it all, but I think it was so much it is more of being a showy for me. Although I st
I enjoyed that a large part of the book deals with the building of trust between Vine and Anton as well ...more
Another Awesome Work By Bethany-Kris...
It's been awhile since I started the Russian guns series...I loved Anton and Viviene in book 1, so even if I was "taken" away from reading the book 2 right away, I had no trouble coming back into the mobster's environment even after several loooong months...
and that's the beauty of Bethany's writing style, it grips you and doesn't let go until you are mind blown...
I already read the review of book 3 and it's flipping scary! I can't see Anton in jail, I just can't. Sigh. But no matter what I can't wait to read it.

Bored me to the sleep. And i forced myself to finish this book.
In 30% end, the story began to develop into something more interesting.
The majority of this book tells us about the progession of trust between Vine-Anton. Plus all the pregnancy issues.
Even at the more interesting part, it gave major dissapointment, like,
the most anticipated war scene is being cut out. after teasing ME, more than half of the book. just like that? ok.
Also, the labor scene is being cut out. so then whats le ...more
The second book in the Russian Guns series this book flowed seamlessly and was every bit as exciting, entertaining and HOT as The Arrangement. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole way
This story picks up after the threat to Viviana from the Cosa Nostra is gone and the couple are awaiting the birth of their first child, the new Little Prince. All the usual anxieties that normal new parents face are intensified because as we know Anton ...more
Written so that it can easily be a stand alone story, it imperfect for anyone who likes soul mates, hot steamy sex scenes, and a truly loyal, loving man. The auth ...more
This book is full of everything that made me fall in love with this couple to begin with. As hard nose and dea ...more
5 out of 5 stars
It’s time to head back into the world of the mafia elite with this second installment in The Russian Guns series by Bethany-Kris. The passionate love story of Anton and Viviana continues to play out inside these pages along with a good dose of intrigue and betrayal.
Anton and Vine are married now and closer than ever. There are exciting changes on their horizon as they explore what it means to be a family. Unfortunately there is no r ...more
So much more is going on in this book than even in the first one! It appears that the danger for Vine and Anton is never going to go away. In fact, Vine apparently has a new enemy, or one of Anton's enemies is using her to get to him. Anton is concerned for his new little family, distracted by the pending death of his father, and suspicious of the people he should be able to trust the most. Vine is worried and feeling like an outsider to Anton's life. This book had even more passion and int ...more
I love that it is not told in first person and you can see things from both points of view. If you watch for the clues along the way, you can figure out who the bad guys are fairly easily.
Can't wait to read the 3rd book. The characters are well rounded and well developed. Though I would like to see more of the two of them in public together. You don't see a lot of public interaction with them. Would love to see a ...more
I love the Avdonin's and I don't like the possibility of meeting a grown Demyan under those circumstances. Plus, I always like to give this series a break before I dive in to the next, as It allows me time to process and decide on what I just read.
Those who follow my reviews will notice ...more
