**A Russian Bratva standalone spin-off novel.

Giovanna Rossi was born an Italian Mafia princess, by blood only. Raised to be nothing more than a toy used to satisfy men’s pleasures. She was always available for a price. She never dreamed to hope for anything other than physical relationships.

Aidan O’Neil was once an Irish Prince, next in line to his father’s throne. He gr

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.

This was supposed to be a spin-off featuring Devyn's brother(s), but I don't understand why it's labelled "spin-off" because it's just another book in this series, nothing unusual or original...

So I really enjoyed "Bought By The Badman" and this being a new author for me I wasn't sure quite what to expect.
Well, it was a really positive experience folks and I raced through this story not stopping till I was at the very end.
It was a definite one-sitter read for me.
So first; this is part of a series; number #10 I think, but let me tell you that doesn't matter a tall.
This can, and I did read this as a stand-alone; I had no issues following alo

My bad man, my sweet man.

I thought this was a pretty good read.
A mafia prince now a king, and a mafia princess who never got to be a princess. I liked the story. Not that it’s unique or different, but it was a good quick mafia read. This is book 10 in a series, so there are established relationships talked about that I assume were in the other books. Maybe not though. Doesn’t ruin the story of Aidan and Giovanna any.

I have loved this series from the beginning and am sad to see it coming to an end but Hayley has kept the series fresh and exciting!

This isn't your typical Mafia love story. There isn't a virgin heroine or a heroine who has been contracted to marry into the mafia. Giovanna has family ties to the mafia but she's been used to give men pleasure and not by her choice.

Aidan has just divorced his wife and the last thing he's looking for is another relationship. He has been set up to meet Giovanna fo
Giovanna Rossi is the dark side of mafia life. An illegitimate daughter of an Italian boss, that puts her to work for him in the worst sense possible. Aidan O’Neil is the new head of the Irish mob, after a very bloody family coup detailed in the previous book. In exchange for his position, he now answers to the Bratva, headed by his new brother-in-law. At first he is unsure what to think when he is given Giovanna as a "present". He never expects the "girlfriend experience" to become this real.

These books get better and better every time. I will say that I was asked to read this story as an arc for my honest review. And I thought I could read it as a standalone, but I couldn't. Maybe some people could, but with nine other stories before this one, I really had to go back and read the others. I am so happy I did!

I liked Aiden in the past couple stories he was in. He is a strong character and he needed a strong woman with him. But we already knew he was married. Little did we know w

Hayley Faiman's latest book Bought by the Badman is a spin off of her Russian Bratva series and it is phenomenal.

Russians, Irish and Italians oh my! Bought By The Badman is the latest book in the Russian Bratva series and was originally going to be the final book. I devoured this one. I have loved this entire series since I first read it but I really couldn’t put this one down even when I had to. Now there are some darker moments in this book like throughout the series so be prepared if you have potential triggers.

Gritty, rough, but exceptionally beautiful Bought By The Badman is by far my favorite mafia read yet. Mixed in with the darkness that goes hand in hand with the Mafia is an epic romance that will make you long for a man just like Aiden. Hayley Faiman has a way of writing that brings the characters and story to life in a way that is completely captivating. I found myself so lost in this book that hours flew by and I never even noticed.

Giovanna is an amazing women. Her entire life she’s been trea

Another amazing read by the talent that is Hayley Faiman , everything she writes is a instant five star for me . Bought by a the Badman brought some characters that I was happy to see find their own story and how they found one another . This can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend that you get all of the Russian Bratva and then find your way into all of this authors books .

My chest hurt like physically hurt whilst reading Vanna’s story. It was heartbreaking and painful and I knew it was gonna be phenomenal when i read the prologue!!! She was everything you want in a female lead. She was so damn strong! She suffered at the hands of such a bastard and Aidan just swooped right in and oh God!!! It was fabulous!!!

Talk about starting a book off with a bang. From the moment you start this book, it is non-stop and you cannot wait to see how the story is going to unfold and how these characters are going to react. This is the 10th book in this series and honestly, if you didnt know that, you would not be able to tell from the book. Each storyline has been fresh and new, and this one did not disappoint as well.
The love story between Giovanna and Aiden is completely different from the rest. Their story is dirt

Bought by the Badman is a standalone, but number 10 in the Bratva series. These books are crafted perfectly to be read on their own or as part of the series.

This is the story of Aiden and Giovanna. Having read this entire series, I can say that I found this installment to be the most well written and emotional of the series. I was in tears, I could feel Giovanna’s hopes and pains. It was beautifully done. While I could never choose a favorite Badman, Aiden is really close to the top of the list

Let me start by saying that this book is one in a series of books. I didn’t know that, but I still feel you can read this book as a standalone. Now with that being said, go get the other books in this series. Trust me you won’t be disappointed. They all are unique and perfectly written. What I can say is that this book is not your typical mafia romance and by that, I mean it’s not your typical virginal heroine that is partnered

If you know me or if you follow my reviews frequently enough. Than you probably know that Mrs. Faiman is one of my favorite indie authors. Seriously I love all her Nortorious Devil's series and all of her Bratva Series. And speaking of which on her Bratva Series, I had been under the assumption going into this book that this one was the last of her Bratva men. which of course made me sad thinking about it all coming to an end.

I will say this book is not so much about my favorite Russian bratva

Badmen have never been so hot! Take another lovely stroll through the world of organized crime with a touch of romance. Bought by the Badman has everything you would expect to see in mafia/organized crime book. You have action, shady dealings, jealous counterparts, and then a little romance on the side. This series is one of my favorites.
I was iffy about this plot to begin with. Could I really get behind this story? The answer is yes. While I had reservations about the topic, I fell in love with

Not sure typical mafia romance but that’s why I love Ms. Faiman’s stories. In this book the female lead was not a virgin, quite the opposite. There were no marriage contracts between the two main characters, Aidan’s first marriage was a contract that was set up by his father and that ended badly. So what do you get when you put together an Irish Prince, who’s father was murdered in hopes to save the family business and put him with an Italian Princess whose father made her the highest priced wh ...more

The brilliant Hayley Faiman has penned another masterpiece in the Russian Bratva series (a standalone spin-off novel), and I'm in complete awe that she just keeps turning them out to be honest. Of course this time, it was more of the Irish crime family was featured when a fallen prince meets a fallen princess!

This is book 10 in the Russian Bratva series by Hayley Faiman.
I was once again pulled right in and couldn’t stop until I was done.

Giovanna is supposed to be considered an Italian Mafia princess, however her father has been using her body for years to make money. When she is told that she has been sold to someone else she isn’t sure what to expect.

If you are looking for a easy love story than move on because Hayley delivered us a addicting dark romance that will have you feeling the highs and lows of this couples' journey. If you haven't had the chance to read anything by this author or this series now is the time. You don't have to read any others to enjoy this one but you will love them as well.

I don't have enough stars for this book. I loved everything about this book. From the beginning these books have held me captive. I don't know if it is the dark elements of these books or just the fantastic writing of the author.

I had no idea what to expect out of Aidan in this book. We have not seen a lot of him, other than in Devyn's book. I had high hopes that he was great, but with a little bad on the side. He did not disappoint!! He was a super alpha male that took his family very seriousl

Even though this is the Russian Bratva series, the story revolves around the Irish mob. More specifically, around the head of the Irish mob, Aidan O’Neill. If you are a dedicated fan of the series, you will definitely remember him from Devyn (Aidan’s little sister) and Timofei’s book. You will also be happy to visit again with a couple of the Bratva members. If you’ve never read the previous books in the serious, no worries. This book can definitely be read as a stand-alone.

Every book in this series continues to be even better than the last, which by now I would think, is impossible. Yet, Hayley Fairman pulls it off each time. This time it revolved around the head of the Irish Mafia and I had been hoping for his book and the author did not disappoint. She exceeded every expectation possible.

The character development is outstanding in this book. I felt for both Giovanna and Aidan. Both have gone through so much the question is whether they can let it all go and come

Number 10 in the series ended up Number 1 in my brain. This is the best book out of series. By a long shot. Which means it is fucking GOOD.

This one brings a little of the Irish, a little of the Russians, and a little of the Italians. It's like a big fucking family reunion or World War something. Not sure. Aren't family reunions kind of like wars?

Anyway. Princess Giovanni ended up being one of my favorite characters. I was worried I wouldn't be able to connect with a whore. But shoc

I am so in love with Mafia Romance. Hayley Faiman does an excellent job in Bought by the Badman. The characters in this story were strong, troubled yet vulnerable and looking for love. Aidan O'Neil is the head of the Irish Mob. He is also brother in law to the Bravita Boss Timofei who married his sister Devan. After a failed marriage he separates from his gold-digging wife and dedicates himself to the business and his four children. Giovanna Rossi is the unclaimed Italian Mafia Princess born of ...more
