So this was the story of Melissa and Yuri and this was a really great addition to the Bratva and Cosa Nostra series.
So I read "Kaznachei's Pain" as a standalone and though technically I followed along easily with this I do think you would get much more out of this experience if the books are read in order.
There are a lot of past book characters included here and I just think that it would help greatly with the immersion and overall connection: I am now m

Told in a dual timeline and full of shocking twists, the Bravta is back with a sexy, gritty and intense tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page.

V.F. Mason words are compelling! Yuri and Melissa never imagined that they would be drawn to each other, but they were so perfect together, like pieces of a puzzle that just fit ♥.

What I loved the most about this book was that I got the chance to read little pieces about the whole gang, Dom, Gleb, Radimer, and even Micha

I like this author writing, I can tell she puts time into her writing. It isn’t the lazy writing that I come across a lot on Kindle lately. Great grammar and editing. I felt the timeline was written perfectly as well.
While the story was written well, I didn't like the plot.
I came across this author a while back when I found her novel -Sociopath’s Obsession- I loved that novel, I escaped in it. When I finished re

Kaznachei's Pain was another outstanding book in V.F. Mason's Bratva and Cosa Nostra series. It was an emotional and intense story that painted a picture of Yuri Radionov that we weren't able to see before. I seriously loved this story and all the shocking af twists! Holy Crap this book was phenomenal!

Without giving away any spoilers the story of Melissa and Yuri was unequivocally amazing. It jumped back and forth from the past to the present giving us a glimpse into the lives of both Yuri and M

I’ve read two books of this series and now I know I’ve gotta read the others as this was so so good.

This is the story of Melissa a FBI Agent and Yuri a brother in the Bratva. Their story is passionate, emotional and intense. The twists and turns had me sitting on the edge of my seat.

Great praise to the author for the fast paced rollercoaster she threw me on. I seriously loved this story. Can’t wait to read more from this author. This will undoubtably be one of my favourite reads of this year.

I love a good mafia romance. The author was able to deliver this and so much more. The characters were funny, complex, and flawed. Melissa and Yuri are two character that shouldn't have been together because of their backgrounds and mainly because of their associations.

The back and forth banter between Melissa and Yuri was funny to read because I didn't know whether Yuri was going to be put in his place or if they were going to get it on. I could tell that Yuri was fighting the emotional attrac

It has the bad guy, the good girl and holy hell the steamy romance. I mean there was passion lot's of passion between Yuri and Melissa.

This is the first book I have read in this series, but not the first I have read by this author. This certainly can be read without having read the first books in the series. It starts off with a bang and continued to pull me in throughout the story. Action-packed, heartbreaking, and sexy.

Yuri is the Kaznachei, the money guy. But just because he is ridiculously smart does not lessen how lethal he can be. Raised by the mafia, trained by the badest of the bad. But lost the one that was suppo

Kaznachei's Pain was another phenomenal book in V.F. Mason's Bratva and Cosa Nostra series. What the reader sees is an emotional and intense read that gets painted really well of of Yuri Radionov that readers weren't able to see before. I seriously adore this read and of all the twists and turns ! Holy Moly, this book was amazing!

It took a moment to gather my thoughts because from page one this story gutted me.

Melissa and Yuri are my third favorite couple in this series. Each story in the series is a stand-alone. And each couple holds a piece of my heart. However, Yuri is my dude. Cold, distant, and methodical, Yuri is s man of few words. He crosses paths with his woman and BOOM! Alpha Yuri front and center!

This blew my mind

In Short
- Both Melissa's and Yuri's story is full of heart break but also love.
- The twists and turns in this book are astonishing.
- There is so much to this story it's impossible to get it across in a review or blurb.

Wow! I don't know how to else to start this review. This book completely took me by surprise, in a VERY good way!

Pain and suffering, guns, violence and crimes. This is the life they know.

Mafia, brotherhoods, loyalty to the end. Secrets and lies, truth and pain.

Rescued from the gutter, patched up and given a second chance. This is Yuris new life.

Catching criminals is her job, not fratanising with them. Her sole mission is to shut down child trafficking rings and this along with the man in the bar starts a whole chain of catastrophic events.

What a fantastic edge of your seat read! fast paced and action pack

Kaznachei's Pain is the fifth book but can be read as standalone. I read this book first in the series and the only thing I found was the need to start from the beginning because this series has to be great if they are anything like this one.

VF Mason is a very talented author but I worry for her mindset. I'm just kidding but her books are dark and intriguing and she quickly became one of my top 10 authors. She does not wow books that you can pick up and read all at once. You have to put it down

Melissa’s surprised when she gets brought a drink at the bar, but more surprised by the hot man with ocean blue eyes in the three-piece suit that brought it, not liking his approach she walks away.
Melissa didn’t have any qualities that Yuri normally liked but he wanted her.
Wondering what she would look like not having to hide her family familiarity she leaves the bathroom, only to have a gun pulled on her, while Yuri saves her, a member of Cosa Nostra mentions her name, she explains he was there

Oh my word, Melissa and Yuri’s story almost wrecked me and I loved it! A heads-up for readers, this is the author’s fifth book in the Bratva and Cosa Nostra series and can be read as a standalone.

Yuri was a teenage runaway when he was found by the Bratva and raised him as one of their own. They knew his background, his potential and embraced him into the fold providing protection, giving him a family, he thought he got away from

Wow! This book was such an amazing read! It's the first of the Bratva & Cosa Nostra books that I've read (from V.F. Mason), so it was fun getting to know all of the characters. And I'm certainly excited to read all the other stories whenever I get a break from blogging and reading arcs.

I just have to say, thank goodness for Google Translate. Not only can I plug in what my Kindle doesn't translate (which was all of the Russian that was in the book), but I can have it speak the words and phra

ruth be told, I am obsessed with V.F. Mason’s books! Ever since I read the Socio Series, I have been addicted and pretty much try to grab and review all of the books related to Socio and Pakhan series.

As Kaznachei I mean Yuri, is part of the Bratva, then we get to go back to my favorite Russians.

So here pretty much, we have the story of Yuri (Bratva) and Melissa (FBI). Do you see where there are complications?

Well, there are more complications along the way, but my lips are sealed.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

A long time ago, life was nothing but never ending suffering. The brotherhood welcomed me with open arms, giving me a chance even though I hated everything about it. For years I lived on the edge of desperation, seeking solace in things that never game me peace. Until she showed up, changing everything-and demanding it all.

Yes, whatever you are questioning when it comes to Kaznachei’s Pain by VF Mason… the answer is yes. This might just be my favorite of the entire series, which is hard to do because I’ve loved this group of Bratva and Cosa Nostra men and women. Now, I hope you pay attention to the #5 off to the right in the parentheses, so there are four other books that come before this one. I’d recommend reading every single one, in order.

Holy Amazeballs what a book!
Ms. Mason had me living in the Mafia world.
Her words came to life and had me feeling and experiencing what her characters are living through.
A world filled with pain,sadness and not being able to trust anyone.
But if you are one of the lucky few you’ll get to experience love as well.
I fell in love with Yuri right away.
I could just feel that beneath all that swag and arrogance lies so much more!
He’s had a difficult extremely painful life.
Starting from childhood on up.

This is part of a series, but for me it can be read as a stand alone since the characters stories are self contained. I did read some of the earlier books in the series, but it has been awhile so I can say that this is a new couple’s story and it can be read as a standalone.

Melissa is an FBI agent who gets involved with Yuri who is a top member of the Russian Bratva. He quickly become possessive of her since he is haunted by mistakes in his past which cost him dearly. Although he tells her that

This was a great story. It was heart wrenching at times as well as humorous, touching, and a love story of two people who in most cases would never find themselves together. Almost considered a forbidden love. The twists in this story kept me turning the pages and they kept pulling into the story. The men in the Bratva were men who had to overcome a lot to survive and make a life for themselves. Even though they had some situations that made them question the loyalty of some others, they still s ...more

This is book 5 “Bratva & Cosa Nostra” series. I read this as a stand alone and still loved it to pieces to it def can be read as a stand alone. But I would say if you have the time read the whole series. I was lost on a few parts because I didn’t know the back story.

This is a mafia romance with so many secrets and twists. I mean this book kept me on my toes. And no matter how much I wanted to punch the “Kaznachei” I also was madly in

Melissa and Yuri were everything that you love in a mafia romance drama...stubborn, independent and vulnerable. The heartache...I didn’t want to put this book down once I got started. I had to know what caused so much pain.
Yuri drove me mad sometimes. Why fight it dude?! I understand now but come on! But all he really wanted was that unconditional love.
