I do not know what to say. Let's just leave it at the fact that my reviews for the book 1 and 2 pretty much sum up my problems with this whole series. Because in all honesty, there is not a lot of difference between the 11 books in this series.

Quinn Parker has been raised as a pawn in her father's quest for money and power like a lamb to the slaughter. However, she decides she won't go along with it, and becomes a serious handful. Her childhood didn't teach her how to be loved or love for that matter, so when Ziven Dorosh tried to love her, she kept running away from him. Her final stand led her straight into a nightmare of epic proportions, only this time, Ziven let her go. He's could never be considered as a weak man, as his past is ...more
Quinn was my least favorite heroine in this series. She loses points for being stupid, but I guess the book gains points for at least acknowledging it. Ziven carries this through the rough spots that would have led to DNF city without him. The ending was abrupt, and cliffhanger-ish without a suspense factor. You aren't missing anything, except thinking it a weird way to end it.

It's hard to like Quinn after she showed her ass and was incredibly horrible to Ziven in the previous books. In PBTB, Ziven has rescued Quinn AGAIN!! This is their story.

In my humble opinion this story lacks the emotion and substance of the previous stories in this series. It may be because I can't connect with Quinn. She's definitely had a rough go of it as a child. However, I've always had a soft spot for Ziven. Which means Quinn's treatment is unacceptable.

Please consider other reviews if on

I'm such a huge fan of Hayley Faiman her books always have everything I look for in a read and Protected by a Badman has to be one of my favorites , side note I haven't read this series yet so this would my first Russian Bratva book I wasn't lost so if you haven't either don't be discouraged but I do plan to read the first ones and the ones after because I can not wait to read about the couple who are next .

Title: Protected by the Badman
Author:Hayley Faiman
Series:Russian Bratva #6

Protected by the Badman was a great 5 star read.
Another great read from this series.

Hayley has done it again, I was pulled right in from the beginning. She doesn’t mess around, things are dark and twisted right from the start. Quinn has run away again from Ziven. The man she runs to turns out to be a dark and twisted man who abuses her in so many horrible ways. Some of the scenes are graphic and could be a trigger for some

I have to say that Quinn has been a grade a b*tch in the last books. Of course, we didn't know it was her that was giving Vin the problems but we knew she was a problem. But nobody deserved what happened to her after she left him.

Quinn suffered greatly from leaving Vin. But even after all that, Vin still takes her back and helps her heal. Now that is love.

War is here for these families. And I can't wait to see what is next.

I am totally and completely hooked on Hayley's Russian Bratva series and was so looking forward to reading Ziven's story. I really loved him for Quinn. Both of them had no one who loved them before they were together. While Ziven gave her all of him, Quinn was a different person who ended up running and in turn experience a hell she hadn't expected. I so loved that Ziven wanted to be the one to heal her and loved watching them fall so hard for each other. Things are easy for them, but it was so ...more

I was excited to find a new series about the Bravata, let me preface by saying this was my first book that I have read in this series, in my opinion it can be read as a standalone, there was a little confusion, but overall did not take away from the read for me. Let me tell you, the other books in this series have already been added to my kindle. From what I learned from reading this Quinn was not too well liked, but me, I actually liked her and felt horrible with everything she went through.

Ziven has met his match in Quinn and she's given him a run for his money. Quinn has been running scared her whole life and while she wants him, she's terrified of what he represents. She runs from him again towards what she thought would be safety and enters her own personal hell. As she escapes, Quinn is all she can think of. Will he take her back, does he still care or has she screwed up forever? Another great mafia story with all that we have come to know and love.

Sorry did not enjoy this one like I did all the others. Quinn was my least favorite h. I tried to like her since I loved Ziven from the first i met him in the earlier books. I continue to love all the Bratva men and the things they do for the women they love. Cant wait to read Mika, loved him since he was introduced and helped Ashley move on..

Protected by the Badman

Things are always dramatic in this series and this one was crazy! Quinn has been a turd for awhile now and still after all that I cannot say she deserves what happens to her. Ziven is such a sweet bad guy lol. I love him so much. I am so happy he gets his HEA. I'm worried about Pasha and how unhinged he has become though.

Each book in this Bratva series just continues to get better. I wasn't into mafia books of any kind until Hayley Faiman started this series. I love it and I can't wait for the next book.
