Ashley Riggs' life was forever changed when she was only seventeen years old. Thrust into a world of darkness, scarred at the hands of many, and left abandoned in a cage, her hope is found in the man who rescues her from the clutches of hell. Day by day, he breathes life into her, and her heart becomes his. But when she longs for more, her savior turns his back on her, insistent that he cannot give her what she wants.
Yakov Chekov is certain that evil runs in his veins. Direct descendant of the late Ivan Chekov—the poison that infected the Russian Bratva in ways that cannot be forgiven, and the father he murdered in the name of justice—Yakov fears he cannot love as a man should. Yet, try as he might, pushing away his sweet girl, in order to protect her from himself, proves to be impossible.
When neither time, nor distance, can eradicate the love they harbor for one another, they must both ask themselves what it is they truly want—and what, as well as who, they are willing to sacrifice to be together. Yet, through it all, Ashley knows one thing for sure. Her heart is tethered to one man—one badman who makes life worth living.
I think with each book of this series I say that it is my favorite, and Living For The Badman is my new favorite! There is something about this series that just has me 100% hooked! I admit I am a bit of a mafia/bratva whore, book whore that is, so when I find a series that continues to get better and better I willing open up, the book (lord get your minds out of the gutters people) and dive right in.
Ashely and Yakov will, well let’s just say they, or I should say Yakov, will bring the violence out in you when he acts like a total ass. I swear I wanted to kick him in the balls, break his nose and slap him all at once. Yes I realize I have anger issues, just roll with it people! This book will consume your time, your life, everything. I couldn’t put it down, then again I didn’t want to either!
Hayley Faiman has a fan for life in this book whore! If you love mafia/bratva books this book, hell this series id one you won’t want to miss out on!
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.
