At five years old, Inessa Kozlova is exposed to the dangerous power a badman wields. Now, twenty years later, she’s convinced that a badman is the last thing she wants in her bed. Strong, beautiful, and independent, she’s determined to live the life she wants on her own terms. Yet, from the moment she lays eyes on her Bratva lover, her heart demands otherwise.
Dominik Markov owes his life to the Bratva. Having grown up in prison, he associates his ties to the mafia with liberty. Embracing his freedom, he takes all that life has to offer—including all the women he can get. Known as the Bratva playboy, settling down is not his idea of happiness, and love is a mystery he wishes not to solve.
It doesn’t take long for Inessa to learn that the power of love is more dangerous than that of any man, and she’s no match against her feelings for Dominik. Yet, it’s Dominik who is brought to his knees—tempted by the only woman who has ever made him want more. Discovering that the cost of more is surrender, he must decide what kind of badman he really is—and if the woman who tempts his heart is worth it.
I really feel like a broken record at times when it comes to this series because I keep saying that each book was even better than the last and once again this is the case. Tempting The Badman is hot as hell, it is a mafia book, which you know I LOVE and it has me biting at the bit wanting more! Usually after a while some series just lose that touch that made me love them in the beginning and I can safely say that the Russian Bratva series is on the very short list of each book getting better and better. The depth of the characters, the plots, the total alpha males who you sometimes want to hate but can’t help but love, and the women who balance them out are just a few of the reasons why I continue to love these books. These are also books that you need to experience for yourself to fully appreciate so I am not going to give anything away but will say if you are a mafia romance fan these are must additions to your TBR lists!
