Review:

I know that I’ve been a little late to the party but GAAAHHH, rereading this trilogy had been the highlight of my hectic work life. Bethany-Kris’ main leads are some of the most fleshed-out characters that I have seen in the romance realm.

There’s no doubt that Renzo and Lucia are one of those. Since this is a trilogy, you’ll have to spend your time reading the books for quite a while. BUT, I’m telling you that it is all worth it. It’s one of those stories that you cannot put down until you read the last page. And how satisfying it was to it all.

It’s so action-packed with so many twists and turns that I’m certain that calling their story as a star-crossed romance is totally underrated. Their love story is more than their origins. I loved how the characters have matured over time.

And I must say that rereading this all in one go made me appreciate Bethany-Kris’ pacing with her writing. It made me see their character development a bit more, I was rooting for their love story like true fan rooting for their OTP!

Plus, the two action-packed novellas here were just icing on the cake. I’ve been following the stories of BK’s world for a long time but still, I can’t wait to devour more! Diego’s Cusp got me so excited for more stories in BK’s colorful world of organized crime.

Essence of Fear by Bethany-Kris Cover Reveal

ESSENCE OF FEAR

by Bethany-Kris
A Boykov Bratva Novel
Cover Credits: London Miller
Publication Date: June 21, 2020
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance, Standalone

BLURB REVEAL

The allure of fear is learning to love it.

Viktoria Boykov has heard it all—cold they call her. The spoiled bratva princess. She knows very well what people say when her back is turned. She doesn’t mind; let them talk. It’s better for people to assume what they want about her than for them to know the truth … until him.

Pavel Kotov knows what people say—death they call him. The Boykov dog. He’s heard all the whispers locked away in the cells of the Compound. As the reaper for the bratva, his life owned by someone else, he knows what they say doesn’t matter. His life has never mattered … until her.

He’s terrifying.

She’s terrified.

Viktoria only wants to keep running from her past. Pavel doesn’t have a life to run from. Freedom is the one thing they both crave—for entirely different reasons. But this life is vicious, and scars like the ones they wear will never fade.

Together, they could have everything.

Or are they just pawns to a bigger game?

Note: Essence of Fear is a Boykov Bratva standalone.

EXCLUSIVE REVEAL EXCERPT

“I have felt far more pain than your little gun is going to do to me.”

“Machine.”

“What?”

“It is a machine, Pav. It is not a gun. It does not shoot anything from the needles, yeah? It is a tattoo machine.”

“Fascinating.”

It really wasn’t.

He thought the way she said it was, though.

Viktoria looked up at him again, all ice-blue eyes wide and fear still lingering around her aura. Yeah, he could still taste it, too. As strange as that was. He could feel it, and he wanted to soak it all in. Because despite the fact she was clearly terrified of him, she was trying to suppress it. She pushed it down, and he wanted to know why.

Why for him?

“Almost done,” she whispered.

Pav nodded. “Spasibo.”

Viktoria said nothing and went back to her work.

He went back to staring at her again.

Seemed like a fair trade, no?

FRACTURED TIES: BOYKOV BRATVA

by Bethany-Kris
Publication Date: June 8, 2020
Genres: Adult, Romantic Suspense, Organized Crime, Erotic Romance, Standalone

Everything comes with a price.

Kolya Boykov isn’t afraid to die—he’s already been dead for a long time.

All it takes is one look at her from across the bar, and Kolya comes to life again. She’s fragile and beautiful and caged. Taking her was the last thing he should have done, but he’s never wanted anything like he wants Maya. As the son of a Bratva boss, no one can stop him from having her.

Maya Kozlov wishes she was invisible—mistreated and unloved, they never let her forget it.

All it takes is a few words from him, and Maya’s life is turned upside down all over again. He’s cold and harsh and terrifying. She should have run the first chance she could, but that’s the thing about Kolya; he makes her want to stay. As the unwanted daughter of a dead man, she just wants to be happy.

There’s only one problem. It’s more than just Kolya who wants to keep Maya forever. Family, legacy, and the mafia … nothing will stand in their way.

The cost of this betrayal is high.
What will be the price?

Review:

Fractured Ties by Bethany-Kris is one action-packed standalone that will leave you wanting for more. Kolya Boykov is the kind of bad guy that you’ll grow to love. It was one intense insta-love when he met Maya and the contrast between the way he treats her versus the world just made me instantly swoon.

This book was intense and gruesome but romantic and passionate at the same time. I liked how Bethany-Kris portrayed a darker side of the Bratva with this one. The story had a complex plot with numerous twists and turns that will definitely leave you wanting for more.

I especially adored the part where Kolya was torn with his inner struggle as he is coming into terms with his feelings for Maya. Another great character that I loved in Fractured Ties is Kolya’s brother, Konstantin. I loved his loyalty and his comedic affable self. The brothers have great banter with each other and both characters complement each other well.

I can’t wait for the next installment of the book from the Seasons of Betrayal universe. It will definitely be another fun and exhilarating read!
