There was never more of a time that I felt the pull to the story of Romeo and Juliet. Their telling mirrored my own, though the ending might be a bit more complicated.

Nik Kuztsov was a taboo, a man I shouldn’t have. A Russian mafia Boss who had successfully ripped my world apart. He took me captive, the daughter to his enemy, for seeking revenge against my father’s death.

The Italian Godfather, my Papa, was gone. Leaving me in control. I was the Godmother, a savior for my people, and now under the Russian’s complete control—their bargaining chip.

Nik was a beast, but so was I. He might have dismantled my life, but I would tear his to shreds. Let the games begin on who could be the most ruthless mafia leader. Unless my heart won out first.



*I received an e-arc in exchange for an honest review*

Deadly Temptations is the first book in the Bring Me Pain series by Aurora Black. It is an adult, dark romance, mafia story, and is definitely for mature 18+ readers and may not be suitable for readers with certain triggers.

A dark romance that I enjoyed, although reading out of my comfort zone. A great debut by Aurora Black! The Italian Mob and the Russian Mob are big rivals and both want control over their local drug cartel. There has been a compromise however, and at a big meeting between all the mob families, Ari’s father, the Godfather of the Italians, is killed.  Ari will be the first Godmother of the Italians, and the Russians are grooming young Nik to take over. To seek justice, Ari goes after the man who killed her father and things take an unexpected turn.

A story full of action, drama, and lots of chemistry, I definitely recommend this book to fans of adult dark romance. We were left with a cliff hanger of an ending, and I am excited to find out what happens next!
