Feb 12, 2020 rated it it was ok

This started so well. Two mafia dons planning a merging of families. By marrying off the eldest son Maxim. To the only daughter Freya.

Slight problem is Freya hates Maxim with a passion. She’s also madly in lust with him as well. So exciting times ahead?

Like I said this started really well but...

It went on and on for far far too long. She drove me crazy. Talk about cutting your nose off to spite your face.
And he wasn’t much better.

It was one misunderstanding after another and another and ano

What better way to unite two Russian mob families than by marriage,but if the heroine has her way,marriage is a no go for her!
I knocked off 1/2 star because of the heroine, Freya.Too much off a hard ass for me in her deep hatred for the hero,Maxim.Even when she found out the truth,she still detested him...but as the old adage goes...Hate is akin to love.
I liked the hero lots!what is it with these Russian Bratva romance hero's that makes them oh so sexy.

A very enjoyable and interesting mafia romance read.
Freya and Maxim had a fabulous chemistry regardless their fights and push and pull. It was predictable but very well written, suspenseful, steamy and slow burn.

DNF 54% lost interest

Acquired via KU.

I'm honestly not even going to rate this book because what did I just read?
I mean am I a joke to you?

The blurb was really catchy and I expected it to be good.
But there really was no chemistry between the MCs. The heroine hated the hero for no reason at all. I found the heroine really annoying and stupid to be honest. Maxim was still better but he acted reallyyyy stupid at times.
Honestly I'm proud of myself to not 'dnf' this book at 50%
I tried but I just couldn't😑

I tried, but Dnf!!! This was annoyingly awful. The H is a wuss, the h is irritating, family and friends are unbelievable as Russian mob or associate. There is nothing dark, suspenseful or mafiay about this other than what you are told. Pass.

Fantastic book

This book gripped me from the beginning, I could not put it down . The story kept me intrigued from start to finish. I loved the main characters so much and would love to read another story about them. It is definitely a book worth reading.

What an incredible start of 2020. Georgia is my favorite author so I knew this will be an amazing story. And I was no wrong. With this ring is an addictive, captivating,slow-burn love story about Freya and Maxim. It’s not your typical arranged marriage story it’s so much more. Freya is an incredible heroine, strong, independent.The writing is amazing like always.epiloque is great too a few months later. Maxim is a great hero, possessive and caring for Freya but cold and distant for the

This book had me hooked from the first page!! I loved loved it so much! The story was awesome, was written very well and very well paced.

It's a mob romance about two houses of Russian mafia one in Europe the other in US wanting to unify their families through marriage.

The hero and heroine's personalities and their chemistry was fire!

Maxim Ivanov is a perfect hero! Cruel in his underworld business, sophisticated in his multi billions bussines at day light, loyal to his family, ready to sacrifice

A exciting mafia read. The storyline was intriguing, captivating and all round enjoyable. I loved the characters. Maxim and Freya were strong people, determined and very stubborn, neither wanting to give in. Maxim is a alpha mafia male, with a lot of responsibility and as tough as they come. Freya is determined and a straightforward woman, she knew exactly what she wanted and liked, and wasn’t afraid to show it. Until he came along and turned her world upside down. I loved her spark, her feistin ...more

They were suppose to be bitter enemies but one phone call from her father will turn her world upside down. Maxim has been captivated with Freya since she was a teenager who was caught up in a tree on his father's estate when he caught her when she fell. No woman has ever come close to what he has felt for her. When the agreement between the families that they would marry to merge the families was made, she was out raged. The more she fought, the more determined Maxim was that she was the one for ...more

OMG this book is in a word.....incredible, it will get your juices running till the very end.
Maxim and Freya will ignite your senses, you wont know wether to love 'em or hate 'em but either way this book will hold your interest till the last page.
Georgia Le Carre seems to have this magic ability to draw you in to every book she writes. I was given this ARC to read for an honest and unbiased review.

Slow Steady EXPLOSION!
Oh boy this is a super great read that takes a bit to really get under your skin and once it does it rocks your senses and keeps you infused till the end. It's sexy, hot, intense, emotionally charged with head turning drama that keeps the pages flowing.

Liked at first....

I really was into this story at first. It was exciting and kept me reading, but then I just got irritated, very irritated. I have never read an alpha male that was so wishy washy in my life! He almost seemed wimpy when he treated her so badly. So afraid of his feelings? Really he seemed so juvenile. Freya wasn’t much better. It was ok. Not thrilled.

I found this book last night and finished it today. I couldn't put it down. The characters were so funny and it was so entertaining. I recommend this one, if you are up for a rollercoaster read it. It was quite sweet aswell which is what I was looking for.

2.5 stars, this didn’t really feel like mafia book to be honest. the premise of an arranged marriage between two old russian mafia families was really good but that plot was kind of just dropped after a while and it turned into freya being stubborn and refusing help. i didn’t feel the emotional connection between the characters even though the potential with their backstory was there.

The plot was dark and dangerous with so much spice. It was twisty too with surprises around the corners. Some thi
