His Smile: A Mafia Romance

4.19  ·  Rating details ·  135 ratings  ·  46 reviews
Roman Mashir was the man that stepped out of shadowed corners wearing a smile. Cruelty and laughter were synonymous in his world. Roman was the devil who caught your gaze and grinned back at you in your nightmares.
Fear was what he liked to see, expected even—bright eyed infatuation was not.
Rahina Chopra was persistent, annoying, naïve, and beyond foolish. While she d

Very disappointing.
I really like this author’s books.
Love the way the heroes take control but this book was not like her usual.

It was so disappointing.
The heroine is so desperate and she is the one doing the chasing.
I didn’t like her at all. The hero keeps pushing her away.
But still the overly persistent h keeps bringing him lunch everyday.

Thank god one day he finally says to her to get out and don’t come back...(view spoiler)

Honestly, I would h

This had so many problems. First one is that ballerinas can only be so tall. In the author’s description Rahina she is five ten to six feet tall and Roman is 6 feet eight inches. Ballerinas are small and lithe again Rahina is described as curved and full. Sorry doesn’t work out. Again in on chapter she is getting her doctorate and then after a few chapters she is getting her masters. So many inconsistencies it drives me nuts. It is almost like the author forgot what she wrote. There seemed like ...more

This book was an OK read but nothing more than that and I'm giving it a 3.5*.

I was expecting a bit more darkness to this because we are talking about Russian Mafia but didn't get it as one would expect when dealing with mafia. There were a few moments where I was NOW WE'RE TALKING but they were over really fast so I was left unsatisfied.

Now to the good parts; I did like the determination of the Rahina who just didn't want to take NO for an answer even when he was being a bastard. The way their

DNF @ 8%.

The opening scene with the h was not good. She sneaks into her father's office bc she wants the keys to the expensive car even though she has her own. She openly flirts with her father's associates despite knowing that they are dangerous. The H is dismissive of the h but she still pursues him.

::I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for the opportunity to read your work!::

This is an intense book about a Russian gangster and Bangladeshi ballerina. Let's hear it for diverse books!

Our Alpha Male gangster, Roman, is a man with a troubled past who focuses all his energy on his criminal enterprises. Our ballerina is Rahina, and she is trying desperately to follow the wishes of her family while pursuing her own dreams.

Okay, not done reading so not giving it stars yet. I LOVED the first two books, but don’t like this one so far. The h is what is killing me. I think the author is trying to write someone who is super confident in herself and doesn’t care what others think, but truthfully the way she is acting is how I find people act when they do care a great deal about what others think. I didn’t like in the beginning how she complains about her car which isn’t that old. It felt like something an uber rich brat ...more

His Dark Smile!

I read this book when it came out last year and for some reason I could not place the title until I read the first sentence of the book, then it all came back to me. I do not know why I did not write a review once I read it because this is the third book in the series and I have read them all, and let me tell you they are all great. Drama, and more drama will be found in this book. But most of all true love has a chance of healing the heart of a broken man.

But just reading this bo

4 1/2 Stars-Better the second time around!
Rahina was persistent, flirty, and thick skinned when it came to Roman’s disinterest in her. His continued rejection did not dim her childlike enthusiasm as she chased him relentlessly.
The reality of Roman’s interest however was more than Rahina anticipated, especially as her family pushed her onto another man and marriage prospect.
Their chemistry and scenes were filled with intensity as Roman did a complete turnaround and pursued Rahina. A bit of brut

Tbh I only read this coz my GR friend Bibi had read it too and gave it 4 stars.

Something about this book intrigued me and rubbed me the wrong way at the same time. Through out the book!

The h was a doormat but for some reason she grew on me. The H was an asshole but he also grew on me. Although Rahina had more chemistry with Dmitiri and Mosca than with Roman tbh. They just seemed dry.

It’s probably coz I can’t ever be that submissive to even myself (talk less of an asshole bf) so I couldn’t rela

Loved the book, the story was well written and the characters were intriguing. Once I started I could not get enough, from the start till the end I was engrossed I was even on the edge of my seat with twists and turns, lust and raw passion, strength, happiness with a happily ever after. Erotic was a major turn on. Do yourself a favor and buy the book you want be disappointed.
Thank you for allowing me to review your book.

Does the devil smile, answer he doesn't, until a girl serves him tea and trys to make a deal with him as if that's not enough she stalks him, Roman a Bratva boss, rahina a ballet dancer and daughter of a business man doing deals with the Bratva, this is how heartbreak is made. Cracking story hooked from the start, the softness of Rahina is the perfect foil to Roman hard man and no taker of prisoners.

This is the 3rd book I've read written by Katerina Winters; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

His Smile is a dark mafia romance featuring Roman Mashir, a wealthy psychopath Russian Mafia leader, and Rahina Chopra, a ballerina who meets Roman when he was doing a business deal with her father. At first Rahina pursues him but eventually the roles reverse with Roman pursuing her. I recommend this read with a its unique plot and interesting characters.

Oh Lord, this book was to fantastic for words. I love all of it, it was really amazing. Rahina was strong to endear all that she did and still coming for more, knowing she could get heart. And Roman, that stubborn alpha man, I loved him, I liked that he said he loved all the time with his actions and in russian without her knowing. They shouldn't work but somehow they do and they are perfect together ...more

Complex. Twisted. Intense desires. This story takes you to the extreme emotional peaks and you either coast thru or stutter and stop along the way down. Rahina is fierce in her love and from her white sack lunch dates to her concern over Roman’s physical welfare she wears her heart on her sleeve.

This is my first time reading this author. I liked this book; I thought the author did a great job with the characters and gave them just the right amount of depth. I wasn’t hindered by not having read the previous 2 books. I’ll look out for this author in the future.
