She was a bad b*tch—Her name sparked fear in those that had the nerve to run from her. Mila Petrovna was a soldier in the Tokhan Bratva, the most powerful crime family in New York City, run by her brother. She collected debts on behalf of her brother and the Bratva. It was Mila who ensured that the Bratva had deadly soldiers to fight. But who would be there to ensure that she was protected?
He’d had his eyes on her for a while. He knew that he shouldn’t want her but he was drawn to her. She was the sister of his rival and that should have meant that she would be off limits. Kole Bozovic was a man who knew what he wanted and went after it. After a brief meeting, he made the decision—she would be his.
The two were thrown together in the middle of a war and lines would be drawn. He’d laid a claim on her and no one would take what was his, even if they tried. War made one realize that some things were best left in the past. If they were to survive, they would have to work together.
I love mafia romances, this is no secret, so I am always on the lookout for a new series and/author to check out. Unexpected Allies is a really good start to a series that I have a feeling I am going to really enjoy. It took me a little bit to get into it but once I did I didn’t want to put it down. I love it when there is the added element that they are from two rival families; it just makes things even more intense.
Mila’s character was strong, confident and at the same time sexy. She held a rare position of power in the Bratva, she didn’t just get it because of who her brother and father are but because she is deadly and is known as the collector, you don’t want her to show up if you owe money to her brother. She knows that she should not want her brother’s rival, Kole, but you can’t stop chemistry like they have.
Kole gets what he wants and he wants Mila. When he has to protect her it is the perfect opportunity to take what he wants, her in his bed, and holy hell he is sexy and hot. While he may be the head of his family and is deadly in his own right, he feels much more than want or lust when it comes to Mila. He swore to protect her, but is she safe from him?
I am anxious to see which direction this series is going to go. Unexpected Allies was a good start to the series and it has the potential of being an amazing series.
