Mafia madness

A rollercoaster crazy ride of kidnapping, killings,twist and turns and an exciting plot.

A bit about the plot:
Nikoli has loved Sabrina from his teenage years and holds her a dear friend, a distant relationship they kept and always remained in touch.

Sabrina also loves Nikoli who has recently rescued her from being sold off to marriage taking her into his own mafia family. An arragement by Sabrina s father who has used his own daughter for self gain and yet now Nik

That's what I discovered when I devoured this book. The ever powerful emotion was conveyed through so many different characteristics. The need for love and acceptance. The malicious need for false entitlement. The undeniable need to bind oneself to another.

I'm left speechless after reading each new book Sapphire Knight publishes. But there's a special uniqueness that's portrayed in Unwanted Sacrifices. The drama and heartache, along with the overflowing of excitement

I have been in love with Nikoli since book 1 & when I found out he was getting his own book, my god, I was super fangirling.
Sabrina, or Bina, I loved her strength. All she went through, she overcame it.
And I loved her nickname for Niko, super adorable. These two were fantastic together & super hot together. Niko, what can you not say about this wonderful Russian. He would do anything for his woman.
Their love for each ot

Sapphire Knight delivers another fantastic read with Unwanted Sacrifices!
I have always loved Niko, I'm glad we learn more about him and why he is, the way he is. Niko lost the people he loved at a younger age, now he is faced with losing someone else.

Sabrina was sold to the Bratva and given to the mafia for Nikoli to keep. She was to wed an evil man before she was saved by being bought. Sabrina and Niko have been friends for years and kno

Another fantastic read by Sapphire Knight her books don't disappoint. Unwanted Sacrifices can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend you read them in order to totally understand the relationships between the characters mentioned.

Nikoli and Sabrina have danced around the chemistry they have felt for each other for years, Nikoli never thought he was good enough for Sabrina but he choose to keep her in his sights being the friend over the years that she needed whilst harboring a

Before I start I would recommend reading Secrets and Corrupted before reading this book.
Words cannot describe how much I love this book. Nikoli is a rough and tough Mafia hitman who is a sweetheart to the one he has his eyes set on. Sabrina is a strong willed Russian woman who has been traded to the Russkaya Mafiya because of her late sister's wrong doings to the family. Niko and Bina who thought that they only were just friends in the other persons eyes are much more then what they seem to be.

This story was very exciting. Fast paced and full of drama, plot twists, kidnapping, killing, love, desire, and hope. Sabrina and Nikoli have kept their feelings close to the chest for years. They have an amazing friendship and Bina doesn’t want to destroy that. Nikoli is just counting the days until he can claim her as his own. When the drama unfolds, Sabrina’s strength will be tested. Deep down she really is a strong woman. Nikoli faces the search of a lifetime and never once backs down. This ...more

Nikoli and Sabrina have been dancing around each other for years. Unaware of each other's feelings, they maintain a friendship as chaste as possible.

Unaware that darkness lurks close to home, they enjoy the freedom and their friends. That freedom ends on what was supposed to be a happy event.

Now everything separates them from love. Niko is desperate to declare his love and have her home safe. Sabrina is beginning to feel that she will never see her love again.

OMG ... I was always attracted to Niko's kind of guy. Hard to look but so tender Inside (well my POV)
The story begins when the previous book finish, Niko is with Sabrina in a remote cabin. They both love each other but think they just can be friend (i let you read why ;))
And then, Sabrina is abducted by really bad guys...

I loved pretty much this book, and the introduction of new caracters, i loved the sequence of events happening all along the book, and the end is yummy too.

I am always amazed by Sapphire Knight, she has the ability to bring you into 9her world and you feel like your there living with her characters. This story didn't disappoint and did the same thing for me.

Niko is a loyal, loving, protective and ask-no-questions man. He didn't have the best start in life, leaving him searching for the missing family stolen from him. In this time, he met his best-friend/ boss, whom he learned to protect with his own life through training with the Russian Mafyia. T

Sapphire does it again! Sapphire has such wonderful talent and can write a series that will have you begging for more. Some get old and tiring after a while but Sapphire does such amazing work that you will be eagerly waiting for more. The more you read, the more you want because you will get so attached to the characters in her books. Even getting just a bit of the guards will get you wanting their stories as well. Awesome job Sapphire!!! You have pushed your way to the top of my must read auth ...more

Unwanted Sacrifices is a second chance romance, a friends to lovers romance, a crime scene investigation, and a Mafia adventure all in one. If you like suspense and mysteries, then this is the perfect book for you! It is part of the Russkaya Mafiya series, but it can easily be read as a standalone.Note: The book DOES delve into the world of human trafficking, so it may contain triggers for some readers.

The characters were well developed, mostly like able, and incredibly complex. Niko

Unwanted Sacrifices - Sapphire Knight 4.5 Stars

Initially I found this book really hard to get into. I know this is a standalone but I think personally it would have been better if I had read the other books in the Russkaya Mafia Series first. Having said that, even though it took me a while to get my head around - all of a sudden I was there and seriously loving every minute.

I loved Niko and Sabrina's story, their true love for each other, the traumatic and the emotional journey they each embarked upon. On

Unwanted Sacrifices is part of a set and although it can be read as a standalone I recommend to get the full effect of it that you read Secrets and Corrupted first.

Ever since Corrupted ended I have been dying for NIkoli and Sabrina's story.

Sabrina (Bina) and Nikoli (Niko) have been friends since they were kids. Both having grown up in the Mafiya shadows they are both well accustomed to the lifestyle. When Bina was sold to Viktor as payment for her sisters bad choices she was actuall

I was given an ARC of Unwanted Sacrifices by Sapphire Knight for an honest review. Once again Sapphire has written a great book. This is the story of Nikoli and Sabrina. They have known each other for years and have loved each other just as long but neither telling the other. Sabrina is being protected by Niko and then she is taken from him. He is determined to find her. Sabrina is one strong lady and her and N

Sapphire Knight created an amazing friends to lovers story that is so much more. Unwanted Sacrifices will keep you at the edge of your seat, will break your heart with the trials Nikoli and Sabrina will endure, and will show you the power of hope and love.

Nikoli and Sabrina have been in love with each other for years but have kept their feelings hidden from the other for fear of ruining their friendship. Now, Bina’s been taken and Nikoli is on a race against time to find her; because in their w

I love reading a book that makes you feel like you're part of it. US should be read as part of a series, IMO, because there are things that just make more sense when you do (plus who wants to miss out on an awesome series!?) So definitely read at least Secrets and Corrupted first!
Nikoli. He's that tough alpha that you just want to hold to your breast and tell him he's a good man because of his past and then have amazing alpha sex with because he's that hot.

Before I begin even though this story could be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading Secrets and Corrupted before reading this book.

I have been waiting for Nikoli and Sabrina's story what seems like forever and let me tell you it was so worth the wait!

Nikoli and Sabrina have been keeping their true feelings about how they feel for the other without realizing they both feel the same. Niko and Bina maintained an easy friendship, secretly wishing for more. It takes something so tragic

Yes, before you even ask you do need to read the previous stories in this series. You don't want to be all confused do you?

I have been waiting for Nikoli's story since book 1, and Sapphire Knight finally gave it to us.

From the previous story we do know that Sabrina was "given" to Viktor, who in turn gave her to Nikoli. What we didn't know was the history of sorts the two have. I am not trying to give spoilers, you do need to read this

I was so excited to finally get to read Nikoli's story...I fell in love with his bossy self as he was Avery's best friend and protector...and now when he fights for the real love of his life, was sweet and exciting all at the same time.
Sold and under protection before she was set to marry into a despicable family, Sabrina became a little too relaxed with Niko and was snatched away into darkness. Horrible torture, both physical and mental, would break anyone...but Sabrina held

Another well written book by the uber talented Sapphire Knight. This is Nikoli & Sabrina's tale and I'm so glad we got to see what lead him to become the protective alpha that he is to all the women that he considers family and or friends. Sabrina sold to Bratva for her sister's mistakes is then given to Niko who as we learn has been in love with her but never had the courage to do anything about. The same can be sai

Being new to this series and coming in at book 3, I have to say that I wasn’t feeling lost or left behind from not reading the first two books. Now I do need to read the first two books in this series. This book had so much too it. An epic love story between Nikoli and Sabrina, who met when they were younger and had always had an attraction to each other but never acted upon it. It has a thrilling
