Pretty things aren't meant to be broken.
But I broke her, and now we both have to pay the price.
I'm her nightmare.
I'm her savior.
And now that I have her signature on an ironclad contract, I own her body and soul.
She doesn't remember me.
She will.
It's inevitable.
Because as much as I know I need to stay away, for fear of unlocking the memories I helped her father bury--

Unexpectedly Sweet

This book tells the story of Maya and Nikolai. At first, it seems that the story will be a straightforward forbidden love story, with the young, naive Maya, falling for the older, dangerous, Nikolai. While all of that is true, this story was anything but straightforward.

Early on, Maya is sold to Nikolai by her father, a Russian mob boss. Why Nikolai wants Maya is somewhat vague, but it is obvious that the two have a past. That past is slowly pieced together through flashbacks a
Wow!!! What an intense journey this book was. I'm going to attempt a review without any spoilers, because half the fun of this book is the mystery and suspense.

Our hero, Nikolai Blazik is a highly intelligent doctor who is world re-known, wealthy and gorgeous too. He's part of the Russian mafia and supposedly works for a Russian mob boss, Petrov. Our heroine, Maya is the daughter to Petrov. Maya is given a interview with Dr. Blazik arranged by her Father. This interview was for a paper she's wri

Smutathon Book 4 - Forbidden Romance / one word title / different worlds

- The story highlights Dr. Nikolai Blazik. You know him in the Eagle Elite series as "The Doctor". Nikolai is a mentalist / hypnotist, torturer and master manipulator. I'm terrified of him and I can't comprehend from all the disturbing stuff he did to his love interest, Maya Petrov. His character is very anti-hero and I like this book explored his complexity.
- The scenes are descriptive and graphic. It's easy to visuali

4 "messy" stars

Maya Petrov gets the opportunity of a lifetime, she gets to interview HIM – the genious of medical science, Nikolai Blazik...and the fate or some fucked up ordeal in the most darkest corners of the human psych made it happen differently – the meeting ended in Maya's signing a one year contract that includes working for Mr. Blazik but it also includes every other aspect of her life now owned by him.
She just wasn't aware that her prison –was her freedom.

I loved Nikolai when he appeared briefly in the Eagle Elite series. So mysterious and oh so hot. RIP was terrific; I enjoyed every second of reading the story of Nik and Maya. They were perfect in every way.

Nikolai is The Doctor, and Maya wants to interview him for her thesis. So a meeting is arranged, only things don't go as planned. She's not unfamiliar with the Russian Mafia, but she wants to be free. From this life and especially her father. So when Nikolai admits that her father ha

It took me a while to get into this one, and decide if I liked Nikolai or not. I think I'm so used to the EE guys, that this spinoff with these guys just didn't seem too right at first. It seemed, more harsh, if that even makes sense. Not that the EE guys are innocent or anything, but there's a whole different tone in this one.

I liked Maya, she was pretty cool, and given that we knew more about things as the reader, than she did as the character, it was interesting to watch how s
