This is my first book by Odette and I am in love with Andrusha. Danger, dark, action, lies, deception, alpha male & hotness overload. Sexy mafia men galore. I'm so glad they were able to overcome their obstacles. Page turning good. Looking forward to more books by Odette.

Disclaimer - Im on a mission at the moment to find new, amazing books to add to my bookshelves. So my tolerance for books Im not immediately sucked into is pretty low. Im looking for engaging writing, well-developed characters, and engrossing plot lines.

Ive read a few books from this author, and really enjoyed them, so hoping for another win here.

Hmm... I feel like this was okay, but also didnt really work for me. I didnt really like the characters I dont think... I didnt really believe the

Meh. The cover and the plot made me think the hero was going to be the typical alpha male but he was beta.

Honestly couldnt put it down. I finished this book in 4 hours. Started at 12am and read til 4 in the morning. I think that speaks for its self. You know when a book is so good, youre nearly skimming the pages because you cant wait for everything to unfold. You just keep saying one more chapter just one more... the next thing you know youve stayed up all night and finished the whole thing. I promise you this book will have you not just saying one more chapter youll be begging for the end in a ...more

3.5 to 4

I loved the plot and the beginning, but the it just dragged on and on and I wanted it to get to the point! I mean I figured it all out, but the characters didnt get it and it just kept going on and on. I would have given more stars, but darn get to the point!

Andrusha and Olivia were perfection. This book had it all: action, suspense, romance, danger, fight scenes, love scenes, and even an adorable dog. Great book. Give me more Russian heroes, Odette.

I love all things that have elements of a criminal undertone to them. So when I discovered that this author was building on a side character that had been introduced in The Penalty Box that had piqued my interest I was ecstatic. I wasn't sure how this was going to go considering that this is a very different direction and feel than her usual books go. I am more than pleasantly surprised because this book did have so many of the things that I look for when reading anything resembling Mafia. Was ...more

DARK RUSSIAN ANGEL is a spin-off from Odette's Vancouver Wolves Hockey romance series. Andrusha Sokolov first made his appearance in PENALTY BOX as Mica Petrov's childhood friend and it's his title as the head of the Russian mafia in Vancouver that gets Mica into trouble off the ice. In DARK RUSSIAN ANGEL, Andrusha fights to maintain order in the city as Ivan Bunko, a new underground player, tries to take control of the streets by any means necessary.

Olivia's career as a dancer ends due to an injury so she become a stripper to support herself. One night she sees something she shouldn't and the police aren't keeping her safe like they said they would. So she ends up under Andrusha's protection until she can testify. Andrusha is an alpha type of man and is very determine to make sure everything goes according to how he wants it to. Olivia is different from other women he has been around because she doesn't fall all over him. However Olivia ...more

One of the things I appreciate about Odette Stone is that she knows how to write about men who are alpha but not overbearing. Andrusha was tough and endearing. Olivia was, understandably, scared but resilient. I love the way this author writes a romance because there are elements of actual risk and doubt in her novels, Im not always sure its going to be okay and that keeps me invested. This book kept me invested and I was happy I read it when I finished it. If you like protective alpha males ...more

Weak female lead

I had such high hopes for this book, Im definitely an Odette fan and Ive been waiting for Andrushas story since he popped up in The Penalty Box. I loved Andrusha but Im not a fan of the lead female AT ALL. She was such a weak character and I prefer a strong female lead. I get that we needed to see Andrushas protectiveness as an alpha male but I really didnt like how weak and pathetic our female lead was. It was a good story but I would have preferred Olivia to not be so...

4-4.5 stars.

Okay, yes Mafia romances might just be my new addiction. This book came out of no where for me and I love it! This is a spin off of the Vancouver Wolves series, which is amazing and if you haven't checked that out what are you doing reading this?! You technically don't need to read the Vancouver Wolves series, but it will spoil the last book, for the couple, but if you don't care about that then this book is a standalone!

Dark Russian Angel is the first book Ive read by this author and it definitely wont be my last. It grabbed my attention from the very first page and kept it until the end.

I really liked the characters in this book. Andrusha is a yummy leader of the Russian mafia. He can be bossy and grumpy, but he was also protective and sweet. Andrusha fought his attraction towards Olivia believing the things hed done were too bad to deserve someone as good as her. However, Olivia saw the man behind the mask
3.5 stars. I enjoyed this mafia romance from Odette Stone. Andrusha really peaked my interest in The Penalty Box, so I was happy to learn that he would be getting his own book. I thought he was a well-rounded character here. He had a lot on his shoulders, but I liked the way he handled things and the way he fell for Olivia. I will say though, that I expected a different kind of partner for him. I honestly thought he would end up with Krista (from the previous books), or someone who was feisty ...more

This is my first book by Odette Sone, Dark Mafia is one of my favorite genres. I am very picky. So I wanted to wait 24 hours to write a fair review.

Lets start off with I couldnt put this book down from page one. I sometimes can figure out what is going to happen from the beginning. Not with this book, so many twists. Kept me on the edge. Love the main characters, Andrusha, Russian head of his Organization, alpha, Who you cant help but fall in love with him. Olivia, A retired professional

2.5 stars
This was disappointing. With a title like Dark Russian Angle and the cover like that, this book totally under delivered on action, angst or suspense. And that ending was very disappointing.

I loved Andrusha from The Penalty Box and was really excited to get more of his story. Unfortunately I just didn't connect with this novel like I did with The Penalty Box (which was a 5 star read for me and is on my favorites list of the year). It seemed like a lot of the plot and action was happening off the page and we just heard about it second-hand. I still enjoyed the story, but it just didn't grab me like others I've read.

Dark Russian Angel is sexy and action-packed. I loved seeing characters from Odette's previous books. If you are into mafia romances this is a great pick!

Dark Russian Angel
Excellent story!!
This is another amazing book by Odette. She writes the best crafted stories. Many of the books I have read recently (not by Odette) are just gratuitous sex and rehashing over and over the same tired plot. Not so Odette. She has fresh stories and tells a creative story that she spices up with a slow burn of romance.
Always a pleasure to get to read her books. She has such talent with storytelling.
Her characters are three dimensional, when she writes there will

Olivia, former ballet dancer and now stripper, can't catch a break in life. So it's not surprising she's in the wrong place at the wrong time and witnesses a murder. One by one, people are getting killed off in an effort to keep her from testifying to what she saw. No one can keep her safe until Andrusha.

I absolutely loved Andrusha. He's all about strength and control. But there's an innocence in Olivia he feels compelled to protect. There's action, suspense, deception, and a lot of sexual

Dark Russian Angel by Odette Stone is such an amazing book. I am literally blown away at what a wonderful book this is. From the very first page I was caught up in the love story of Andrusha and Olivia. I first encountered Andrusha in the Penalty Box by Odette. He was such hot Russian mystery and Im so thankful that he received his own story. This book is so terrific and you get edge of your seat suspense and sizzling hot romance. Each and every part of this book had such incredible details ...more

Olivia sees something she shouldnt have and now she is in danger. Andrusha is the only one who can protect her what will happen when sparks begin to fly between them. Fast-paced mafia read with loads of drama, suspense and steamy chemistry. Andrusha and Olivia are great characters with lots of chemistry and the story really drew me in. A good read. ...more
