I am her enemy.
And I’m going to make her mine.
She might never forgive me, but I don’t care.


Saving the daughter of an enemy was not my intention but, now that I have her, I intend to keep her. Nothing is going to stop me from using this mafia heiress as I see fit, not even her personal vendetta that pits her family against the Bratva.

It was a good book with the main characters being quite likeable. The heroine was a little bit oblivious about certain things at first but it’s quite understandable why. The hero was alright too but I have to say the first book for me was better as I felt the connection more with them. Good story with a good plot.

The Russian Savage is dark, dirty, smart, sexy Bratva mafia romance at its finest.

Good golly, I’ve been dying to read Arkady’s story since meeting him in The Russian Thug and wowza, I was not disappointed.

Arkady is the stereotypical Bratva enforcer—hard, mean, unforgiving, smart. And sexy AF. *fans self* He’s not someone you’d want to meet in a dark alley—nor in a well-lit room, honestly. But there’s something about him that is magnetizing. And something that Lucia can’t quite ignore either. E

Holy Cow! This book started off with a bang!
This story was dark and intense and full of action and was steamy as all get out.

These Krasnov brothers are dangerous as all hell but, with Arkady, there is so much more it's almost like a raving beast lurks beneath the surface. Those cold dark intense looks scared even the crap out of me. Arkady is a man on a mission and that is to stay far away from any long term commitments he is a hit it and quit it kind of man until he meets a raving beauty name L

Arkady is the next Krasnov brother to find himself embroiled with a female.

The Russian Savage is a book I could not put down. I honestly didn't think Rie could top the first book in Krasnov Brothers series but this one blew me away. I loved this one. The secrets, twists and turns, and sexual chemistry made me blow through this book. Lucia and Arkady are just so intriguing to read.

Arkady is one of the best characters I have read in a while. Rie is a brilliant writer and I can't wait to see where she takes us next.

Lucia is a broken woman and she doesn't want the Russian to see her that way. But what she doesn't realize is that Arkady can save her in more ways that one. If they would both give in to thei

The Russian Savage: Enemy of the Bravata is the second book in the Krasnov Brothers Series. It can be read as a stand alone. There is mention to the first book but they aren't intertwined enough that you can't read as a standalone. That being said, you should read book one, The Russian Thug: Abducted by the Bravata, it's a delicious read and shouldn't be missed.

Halfway through The Russian Thug, I knew I had to read every book featuring these characters. I am absolutely loving this gritty and dark world Warren has created. Arkady’s story was so much more than I anticipated! It was interesting to see a softer side of him. He was still the hard, broody, dangerous man we met in the first book but here we get to see that he’s so much more. Lucia’s story was quite emotional and real. Together, these two were able to find something they were missing, somethin

Once Arkady finds out Lucia is an Italian princess, he decides to keep her for awhile. Lucia hasn't been treated well by her father. She has issues that she keeps hidden until Arkady finds out. Arkady is hiding secrets of his own. The two fit together in ways that are sad but spectacular at the same time. Another win for this author a ...more

Rie Warren did a great job on this story. The Russian Savage had a strong well written plot that was filled with several emotions, including suspense, drama, action and more. Lucia and Arkady were strong characters, their journey was a rollercoaster, they had many ups and downs but they were drawn to each other. The attraction between them was strong, their chemistry was sexy. They were good together.
I enjoyed this story, it was great.
Thank you, Rie Warren. Great work :)

OH MY GAWD! I picked up this part 2 series and could barely, and I mean, barely, put it down!

Ms. Warren has hooked me. I'd never read any of her stories previously until the blurbs of the Krasnov Brothers piqued my interest! Now, I will check out every work, and I will follow this series for as many #s Ms. Warren plans to write!

Arkady and Lucia are both, amazing characters. They were / are AMAZING!

HOLY HELL, what I didn’t expect was how NAUU-TYYY this story gets. It has some over the top scenes that ummm have me fanning myself.

Lucia and Arkady take a minute to get the story started. You have all kinds of questions but as you get all the details, if you are anything like me your blood pressure will rise. Yep t

Arkady Krasnov is the second in command of the Zolotov Bratva. He is loyal to Yuri and his brothers, both by blood and in the Bratva. When he happens upon a woman being accosted in an ally one night, he has no idea that his life is about to be turn upside down and sideways. He has no idea that the woman he has rescued was made for him and that he will feel her presence and absence soul deep.

The Russian Savage: Enemy of the Bratva is about the oldest Krasnov brother, Akrady. The author has given a storyline that is dark, sexy, and at times downright brutal (as is the mafia way of life). The book is very well written with a storyline that will have you white knuckling your e-reader a time a two and loving every second of the read. The storyline is suspenseful: an Enemies to Lovers with Dangers around every bend and some very hot sexy scenes are to be had as well. The author also gave ...more

‘The Russian Savage: Enemy of the Bratva’ is the second book in Ms. Rie Warren’s series ‘ Krashnov Brothers.’ Having never read anything written by Ms. Warren, and me being an ‘everything and anything’ mafia enthusiast, her twist to the ‘enemies to lovers’ concept caught my attention. The pulsing, sensual heat between sworn mafia enemies Arkady (Bratva) and Lucia (Sicilian) begins to simmer after Arkady comes to her rescue, only to have Lucia point her gun at him when they both recognize each ot ...more

This is the first book that I've read from this author but it'll definitely not be the last. Arkady is the second in command of the Zolotov Bratva. Yury is the Pakhan of the Zolotov Bratva, and although Arkady and his brothers are not his biological sons, he treated them as if they were. Arkady was leaving the Cat and Suckle night club, which is owned by the Zolotov Bratva and they do some of their business. On his way

Rie Warren had me addicted to her brand of mafia romance after reading Book 1, so I was more than eager to dive back into the world of the Russian Bratva!

This book is just as compelling as the first one, but is even darker and sexier.

Arkady is the second in command, the underboss of the Russian Bratva. He’s dominant, dangerous and deadly. Lucia, wanting to avenge her brother’s murder, has no idea what she’s getting herself into until it’s too late. Rescuer to captor to saviou
