Here's to hoping my readers survived the first book and are ready for the second volume! This book is a continuation of the Brothers' saga and will feature the full cast from volume one plus a new character or two...

If you haven't already, start with Book 1 in the Brothers series, The Hunting Town, and as ever, I'm always immensely grateful to those of you who leave your honest reviews <3 <3

Gavriil and Ify .. . Aiden and Alina both males alpha and there women strong and determined and I love both couples fiercely. This book is intense! Many new characters and each one grew on me and I want to know each of everyone’s story! You definitely have to read the first book to understand what’s going on in this one. I’m hoping this isn’t the end I want more. Out of both books this one was my favorite. The heat and intense keeps you wanting to turn the pages. 5/5 stars

Elizabeth Stephens is a master of literary foreplay. The Hunted Rise achieves a perfect balance between action, erotica, love and all the bits in between. The action scenes are grippingly intense. The violence is intense without being nightmare inducing. The love scenes! Oh the love scenes! They are graphically gorgeous. Every moment of passion is precisely calibrated to tug at your heartstrings along with your clothing. Other books might torture you with laughable descriptions of sex, or gloss ...more

I waited 2 years for this sequel and it was worth the wait!

I read the first book, The Hunting Town, back in 2017 and no joke, I was stalking the author’s page, newsletter, social media in anticipation for the sequel’s release. When I learned that we were finally getting it in a few weeks, I was super excited.

I’ll admit that because of the wait, my expectations were high, but I had no reason to worry because this series is so addicting and riveting and I loved everything about it. It is full of

Although this one isn't the balanced bloody ballet of the first book it is good in its own right. The focus has shifted from just the brothers to the additions of their family. The internal war of the Russian mob has forced its way into their lives and now they have a bag of drugs they don't want and no easy way to get rid of it. The new local mob leader doesn't believe they don't want the drugs and is trying to figure out how to get the drug money back. Yep it's a brutal, bloody battle to see w ...more

Could not put it down...
Gavrill and Aiden 2 of the most complexly damaged men in more ways than one. As we left the first book I was hanging on for dear life and thought no way could Elizabeth take me on another rollercoaster like that again. It may have been 2 years in the making but oh boy was it totally worth the wait.
Twists and turns in every corner, betrayal and lies for more lies and danger. The bag of drugs the brothers hold the key to are meant to be the key to freedom but who’s does it

Elizabeth Stephens once again blew my mind away with this story. It picks up from the first in the series and it was perfectly done. She tells us the story of Alina and Aiden as well as Ify and Gavriil. Both couples are what I would call beautiful disasters, they are each messed up in their own way, however have beautiful souls underneath all their darkness. Each character I fell in love with while reading the book. The suspense with the underlying romance of them was so well done I kept wanting ...more

They went into hiding. He got her to someone that would keep her safe and hid away biding their time. She was out for a story, her newest book, when she found him. The chemistry was immediate. She kept coming back for more, until. . . Now he has to fight. He doesn’t know just how serious it is. This will be a battle for their lives. They don’t know how strong these women are until they are tested. This author takes us through the plans and when things go south she gives us even more from this gr ...more

I have been ruined! Ruined from reading any other books. How is it possible for this book to be even better than the 1st one? I need another star because this is a 6 star book. The two alpha men, Gavriil and Aiden are so different from each other but I loved them both and the strong women who turn their worlds upside down. The story line, character detail and world building was fantastically done. I am a bit upset at how much sleep I lost reading this book because I could not put it down. I can’ ...more

Hoo Boy. Panties. Melted.

I received an ARC of this book because after reading the first one I begged. There might have also been some pleading. I'm not ashamed.

This book is hot. So layered and so deep in places it's dark but never too dark, sometimes hilarious. Always well written and engaging. I LOVE these Alpha males and the females they find are no shrinking flowers and will not back down. GREAT character development. Love the HEA. This series will stay on my 'follow' list.

Great sequel

Great sequel to an already fabulous book
Like the first book, this has it all...
Romance, hot sex, violence all packed into a mob thriller. Dont be fooled though, the author doesn't hold back and have the mob plot in the background to make it a bit more interesting, its bloody and deals with real life issues and hurt and pain on the main characters just like it would in real life.
I admit I did stumble through the first chapter as I oriented myself with the names of the mob characters

Don’t get any ideas

So pretty much this story was good until you started making Ify do dumb sh*t and it just made me want to keep snatching stars. If she knew enough to pop Gavriil’s hand away from her hair she dang sure knows she’s not a vigilante running all over town. I enjoyed reading Aiden’s character every word about him had me tighten up just to keep reading about what he would do next. More books in the series?? Who is this other big person in the background running women?

Wow. I thought the first book had lots of shock and terror, but this one stepped it up. We again saw multiple narratives all leading to the final showdown. Human trafficking played a big part. We found out that not all the Russians were bad, and many characters experienced growth. I think these two main couples resonated better than the two in the first book. Less insta-love, more challenges experienced before leading to the end.

Great character development. A story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Lots of twists and turns until the end.

The Hunted Rise

Wonderful characters and a truly heart-stopping edge of the seat story, it drags you right into the middle of all the action, twists, turns and intrigue right up until the end
