One kill is all it takes for her to be mine.

She’s just a pawn in the Bratva’s games. A virginal prize, exchanged from one boss to another. Her perfect curves and that sparkling smile, she’d be deadly if she hadn’t been sheltered from the mafia's wicked world.

Now she’s being thrust into it.

A marriage to a man I know has a terrible temper and a cruel sense of torture.

What another interesting story that Alexis Abbott has brought us once again. She never fails to bring us one amazing story after another.

I can not imagine what it was like for Anastasia to be living in this false reality. To think you had a father that loved you and wanted the best for you to find you were nothing more then property that he could sell. To find out your father was not the man you thought he was had to be crushing and the fear she must of felt to given to a man to marry that she

This is an excellent mafia romance book. Anastasia is the epitome of a sheltered Bratva Princess. Without her even realizing it her dad has been making sure to keep her isolated and totally dependent on him. After turning 18 and graduating finishing school her dad informs her that she is to be married in one week. The shocker is that he expects her to marry a man that is the same age as her father and she definitely doesn't love him or want to marry him at all. Ana is very unhappy about this and ...more

I am just going to say that this author is the queen of mafia and if you have never read her work before you will want to jump in here. This story was the perfect balance of action, passion, details, and emotions. It is the story of Nikolai and Anastasia.

Nikolai is an assassin for the Russian Mafia (the Bratva) and his is exceptional at his job. When no one else can get the job done or it is too important he is called in. What the Bratva don’t know is that he is also on the path of revenge and

Alexis Abbott has given us another page turner. Once I started reading Nikolai and Ana’s story, I couldn’t stop. Nikolai is a hitman for both the Koraleva and Ovechkin families. When Ana and Nikolai first see each other, the chemistry is there. Then, Nikolai tells her some bad news about her dad. Of course she doesn’t believe him and she leaves. Is this the end or will they get their happily ever after? Grab your copy and get ready to get sucked into the Bratva.

This is a well-written, very intriguing story that inexplicably links Anastasia and Nikolai from the very first moment they gaze into each other’s eyes across a crowded airport. Anastasia is on her way to an arranged political marriage, while Nikolai has a long awaited mission to complete. Fate though has other plans and its intervention bring some quite surprising revelations for all. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would have no hesitation in recommending it.

Alexis Abbott nails it again with this fantastic read Killing for Her, some have labelled it as as dark but no I don’t think so, more suspense than anything, yes there is violence but not that much and the subject matter is unsavoury but for me the story was about a young sheltered girl, having her rose colored glasses not just been taken of but been obliterated and discovering her life was not what she thought. There are elements to the book which have you gripping your seat but again not as mu ...more

Killing for her

I liked where it was going but somethings just don’t add up. I guess if I can describe this book it would be that. The supporting details don’t lead to anything because it’s like they are a bunch of thoughts randomly added to make the story longer.

There was an instance of her knowing her father is a powerful business man... not that he’s in the mafia or anything. When she was at the Ovechkin study, she ruffles thru papers on his desk and realised what a “bad man” he is.

Anastasia has been spoiled, pampered, and never had anything to worry about, always under the thumb of her father until he gives her no choice but to marry his business partner.

This book has suspense, action and hot steamy sex. I was entertained and enjoyed this book, but I think Alexis Abbott missed out on some suspense. There was a point in the book I had built up for this big showdown but it never happened. I was a little disappointed with that, but Alexis Abbott took the book a different direction. So for me it kind of petered out on the suspense. I did find myself rooting for Nikolai and Anastasia. Anastasia is spoiled, sheltered yet she has a head on her shoulder ...more

Suspense, action, raw emotion

I can be sure to get a sexy story full of suspense with lots of action each time I pick up a book by Alexis Abbott. Her characters are vivid, the emotions and turmoil are raw and real, and a plot that gets your heart pounding. Killing For Her did not disappoint and had a wonderfully satisfying ending.

Anastasia is sheltered by her father, and although she has an idea his business has a criminal aspect to it, she is unaware she is a Bratva princess soon to be married
