Our wedding was fake, but my moans were real.
I should have known better than to go out that night.

My worst fears come to life when an enforcer for the Sokolov Mafia corners me to collect on my dad’s gambling debt.
He shoves his hand between my legs and tells me what I can do to work off what my father owes.

It’s sick.
It’s wrong.
But I don’t have a choice.

>.> sometimes when you're in a garbage mood you have to read a garbage type book.

Although read/skimming because "the mueller report" :| *stares*

... a "locally famous diner" ... known for "scratch food" ... y'all.
No. I can't. [I'm going to keep reading for now in a trainwreck sort of way...]

... apparently you also have to have grown up rich to know if someone is ACTUALLY hot/attractive or not.
I guess being sighted isn't enough and doesn't mean anything ...

Ok I'm 25% in and they're married

Fun story. I loved the honest and humorous interaction between the couple. No silly games. A steady but hot build up to love and unplanned but joyful pregnancy. Great intrigue and the right amount of drama.

The familial and background of the heroine and hero were weakly described with not much known about the hero. The reader didn’t even meet the heroine’s family even though the heroine’s father was the one in trouble.

I especially didn’t care for the portrayal of the hero. This guy was

Brook Wilder – Bound: A Mafia Romance
This is another wonderful, intriguing mafia romance written by a talented author. I found the plot entertaining with just the right amount of intrigue & suspense. The characters are well-developed with a variety of traits & different sides to their complex personalities & they are inclined to be devious.
There is: a gambling addicted father with financial debt owed to the mafia (Jeffrey), a innocent woman blackmailed into a fake marriage

Trent and Sam

This book is an entertaining read. Trent is a low level enforcer for the Solokov family. Samantha is the daughter of the man who owes them money. This story has layers to it. It’s fast paced through the end. Turns out that her dad had a side hustle going on with Jabari, Trent’s boss. When he wants out on the drama, trouble is imminent. Trent is supposed to rough up the daughter for the money but ends up falling in sensual lust and love. Everyone here is protecting their own

Based on the blurb for this book I kind of thought I knew what to expect but I was wrong.
When Samantha finds herself pressured by the mob to collect on her father's debt it seems like making a deal might be her only option. But she never expected to end up "married" and part of a con. But things take a completely crazy turn when she's required to be fake married on a weekly basis. Over time it becomes obvious that Samantha and Trent have real feeling for each other but things take a crazy turn

When Trent seeks out Sam at a bar he doesn’t realize how far it will go, he figures he will get in scare her to talk to her father and his job will be over. When Sam gets a look at Trent she gets butterflies for the first time in years and when he tells her what he is there for she puts on a brave face and challenges him. This story was fast paced and sweet even though Trent is supposed to be an enforcer and Sam is tougher than you think.

Low level mafia enforcers deserve love too

So when the job turns seductive and personal, Trent decides he's going to take Sam's desire and use it for his enforcing no. That comes up. and if she can work off her dad's gambling debt the better, right?
Loved Sam and her feistiness, Trent was so-so for me. He didn't seem the smartest cookie in the bunch to be a top-level enforcer as he's portrayed, but the story itself on how they grew to love each other through it all was sweet.

Trent is the enforcer for the Russian mafia, and is sent to track down Samantha to pay her father’s debt. Sam soon finds herself blackmailed into a fake marriage with Trent. This is a well written flawless story, which is action packed, with drama, angst, betrayal, and steamy chemistry. I was totally hooked and intrigued throughout, and I cannot wait to read more from this talented author, whose work I recommend for all,

This is a very good Fake Marriage Mafia Romance. The storyline is well-done with steam, mystery, deception, debt payment, and a twist when the fake becomes real. The characters are defined with the H being a Mob Enforcer, violent, sexy, determined, immoral and ruthless while the h, an innocent is at first used as payment for a debt owed by a family member. This is a compelling, dark romance read and I liked it. I voluntarily read an ARC and this is my honest review.

Another brilliant book by Zoey Parker when Sam sat in a nice quiet booth to have something to eat and do some reading she never thought that she would finish up being involved with the mafia. It was all because of her father's gambling problem that she pretended to be Trent's fake wife. A lot of twists and turns but it all comes to a good finish. Definitely one to read

I found this enjoyable fairly quick read. I enjoyed the storyline and liked the characters. Sam and Trent had great chemistry. There were some twists, drama and action as well. Some of the finer details were inconsistent at times, which was a bit irritating.

Sam finds herself relaxing in a bar when a tall dark stranger approaches, little did she know he would take her on an adventure which would change her life completely. Full of betrayal, addiction kidnapping and a fake romance which turns into a lot more. Loved it

Just right twists and turns

I like Ms Parker's writing style. This story is mild compared to others of hers over read. Trent is to die for, and Sam is his dream.
It's lovely.

Fantastic Chemistry! I enjoyed every moment of this book! It has suspense, love, sexy situations with plenty of twists and turns.

All of my reviews for Zoey Parker's books all seem to start out the same way....This was my favorite bad boy mafia character yet! In this case I can only say that Trent was by far my most favorite male "hero" of all the books of hers I have read. Trent was sent to "scare" the daughter of a man who owes a lot of money to the Sokolov Mafia money he does not have. When Samantha first set eyes on Trent she had a instant attraction, yearning and thoughts of all the wicked things she wanted him to do ...more
