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.

He looked like a guy who wanted to fuck me and throw me away, just like my father had done to my mother. The difference was I knew who I was dealing with. I might not outsmart the devil, but I was willing to deal with him.

If it's dark, depraved, and with a splash of kinky...this girl is ALL over it. What? Why are you looking at me like that? It just so happens that I have a serious reader hard-on for the fucked up ones. And prince of the Serbian mafia, Vasilije Markovic? Oh he

descriptionOn a purely personal level I don't like this cover at all. Scratch that I just don't like the way the model is posed I guess. I honestly can't put my finger on why I don't like it; I just don't. That said, it is a well done cover. The composition is very good. It has an eye-catching title work (although I would have made the title a little smaller so it would sit just under her feet and not over them). It's a good representation of the heroine. So ya, personal feeling aside it's a great cover.description

From the very start I knew this was gonna be some dark shit

“My heart beat faster, and without thinking, my hands coursed up her arms, over her shoulders, and into her hair. I tugged her head back and forced my tongue deeper in her mouth. I took. I claimed. I owned her with my kiss, which was growing more intense every second. It was wild and verged on out of control.”

But i didn't mind..... nope, not at all *hehe*

4-4.5 hot stars

Torrid is a super hot,intense,dark,sensual and erotic story.The story flowed really well and it had a great mix of suspense,a little bit drama and hot scenes.


Oksana and Vasilije are two really interesting characters.Both are complicated characters and their relationship is explosive.They are full of intense and passionate moments.

If you are looking for a fast paced,steamy and dark romance this is perfect!!

Here I thought I was going to get to read my first book with Serbian rep. As a Serbian, I'm deeply disappointed that this first was a fail :(

I read a free preview of the book and right off the bat on page 2 the author gives an incorrect phonetic pronunciation of the hero's name.

I'll be damned! You know how I feel uneasy with the previous book, Sordid because of some non-consensual sex. Anyway, this isn't a continuation but I wouldn't recommend it to read as a standalone. You can read Sordid also in this book because it got banned a while go from Amazon. But surprisingly, I liked this book very much! Totally different from Sordid.

Torrid is a standalone and is part of the Sordid series. You don’t have to read Sordid prior to reading Torrid, the two books are completely different in my opinion.

I love Nikki Sloane, she’s a one-click author for me. I find her books really passionate, steamy and a tiny bit raunchy but in a really good way.

This is Vasilije and Oksana’s book.

I completely enjoyed this book, it was 100% up my alley. There’s a lot of steam, hence the cover, the title and the series in gener

I enjoyed this book. This book is second in sordid series by nikki sloane.

Its a mafia thriller romance.

  I won't call it dark because i have read much worse and this was'nt even tidbit near the type of dark i know!

Sure, it had some killing and dangerous glances but nothing we can't handle.

The book started with an amazing prologue❤
It introduces Oksana our heroine.

Nikki Sloane is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I absolutely love her books. And this one was no less amazing.
Can't wait for what she brings up next to the shelves.
Nikki Sloane is absolutely amazing in creating the hot, sexy scenes. If you are looking for well-written erotic stories, then this is something for you.

I really like this story. It intrigued me and pulled in the plot. I read each page to learn how this strongly twisted couple will deal with this whole situation.

Torrid By Nikki Sloane is a hold on to your pants type of ride.
It's the sort of story that once you start reading your racing to the finish line, it's that good.

Torrid, a new standalone in the Sordid series, features the younger Markovic brother. A bad boy who gets what he wants, Vasilije wants to take over the throne of the Serbian mob, but in the meantime a little action with a pretty girl wouldn't hurt. The blonde was meant for a single night, but something about her keeps him coming back for more and each time he shows her a little bit more of his true self.

4.5 "The Villain & Her Muse"

I liked this book more than Sordid! This can be read as a standalone, although I think reading that book 1st will enhance this book. The author does a great job of explaining anything pertaining to Vasilije that you might have missed in book #1.

Vasilije was really Hot. There was tons of Sex Scenes. This author made sure not to skip over all the Schmexy Deets either! I loved all the suspense swirling around Oksana & the mob war between families.

“I’m gonna come in your mouth,” I said, my words tight with pleasure. “You’re gonna hold my cum in there until I tell you to swallow. Got it?” Heat blasted along my legs. Shivers worked their way up. “Not a drop until I say so.”
“You like my flavor rolling around in your mouth?”
It was doubtful she’d answer, but couldn’t anyway. Her cum-drenched tongue couldn’t move under the gag I’d placed on her. I held absolute control.

I feel nauseous!

Nikki Sloane can write. Now before I do my review, just let say, that this is nothing like Sordid, which isn't a bad thing. For some, it may even be a good thing. While I loved Sordid, and it's questionable morals, some didn't. Which is understandable.

So if your steering clear due to the first, no worries, this one is dark, but not dubious consent dark.


I genuinely liked Oksana, while she was in over her head, she still held her own.

WOW. Let's start with the obvious. Nikki Sloane can design a cover! This cover is pure perfection. It's hot, obviously. It's dark. It's dangerous. It's everything that Torrid is.
Torrid is the second book in the Sordid series. HOWEVER, it can be read as a standalone book. If the thought of a banned book doesn't sit well with you, you can read Torrid without reading Sordid. Again, this is NOT a continuation of Sordid.

Torrid is the second book in the Sordid Series, but could definitely be read as a standalone. It is sexy, dark and suspenseful!

Vasilije is making his name as nephew and next in line to Serbian mafia crime boss.

"He was the devil and tasted like sin. Dark, delicious evil."

All the components of the mafia genre lie within the pages of this book......Vasilije is a ruthless Serbian mafia prince and Oksana is the daughter of a Russian boss and a woman on her own personal mission.... secrets, lies, violence and revenge are the basis for their relationship ....

I'm so happy to have devoured V's story. I knew from book one ole boy was searching for something or rather someone. His own someone. This is their story.

As the old adage goes, when seeking revenge be sure to dig two graves. One for the soul you're after and one for yourself. This story takes revenge to another level! The overall intrigue is delicious and suspenseful! The characters and scenes are cohesive and realistic. I'm ready for more, more, MORE!

4.25 stars. This was a really book! This is Oksana and Vasilije's story. Vasijile is Luka (from Sordid)'s brother. He is involved in the family business/Serbian mafia run by his Uncle Goran.

On a job for Goran, he meets Oksana, who is one of the girls being traded. Oksana is the daughter of a Russian mobster and has big secrets of her own. (view spoil ...more

I have a bit of a love affair with every Nikki Sloane book I read and I am especially fond of her forays into the dark. After reading Sordid, I was really anxious for Vasilije's story. In Torrid we get to spend an entire book learning more about this complicated and interesting character.

Vasilije Markovic is the second in line in the Serbian Mafia. He is the exact kind of anti-hero I love. He can be cold and cruel and can make you uncomfortable, but he has a charisma to him that draws you right

I finished this book last night and it was everything I wanted it to be.

I was excited for Vasilije's story. I was a big fan of Luka and Sordid and couldn't wait to read his brother's story. He didn't disappoint. He lived up to all my expectations and then some.

One thing I loved most about this book is that I loved both characters separately but even more together. They are both strong characters individually, but for me worked so much better as a couple.

Loved this book!! Was dark, lusty, dirty and sexy. Didn't want to stop reading. So I didn't and now it's done. :-(

Vas and Oksana are not a traditional romantic couple but they are so similar that it makes sense. The way their story plays out is inevitable and packed with the push and pull that makes Nikki the writer she is.

A darker romance

I enjoy darker reads, and the storyline of Torrid intrigued me right from the beginning - the prologue had me wondering what was coming!

Vasilije and Oksana were initially both using the other to suit their different agendas, but the physical draw they both felt was present from the first meeting. Vasilije comes across as so cold and withdrawn, but Oksana starts to see behind the facade he presents to everyone else. And together they are so hot!!

Wow what a great read so dark... absolutely loved it!! The two main characters were calculating, cunning and a little bit ruthless in their pursuit of revenge! In amongst all the chaos a love story ensued.. the chemistry was so hot they both got off on pain and suffering. Highly recommend this story for anyone who enjoys dark dangerous reads with a great cast of characters to sink your teeth into.

Title: Torrid
Author: Nikki Sloane
Genre: Dark Romance
Rating: 4/5

If you're looking for a hot, sexy, erotic story then look no further.

This was a fast paced story in which the main protagonists Vasilije and Oksana were a seriously dysfunctional pair there was nothing really between them at first except secrets, lies, sex and a struggle for power but then feelings came in to play and something more began to develop. Torrid was a deliciously dark steamy
