Giovanna Rossi was born an Italian Mafia princess, by blood only. Raised to be nothing more than a toy used to satisfy men’s pleasures. She was always available for a price. She never dreamed to hope for anything other than physical relationships.
Aidan O’Neil was once an Irish Prince, next in line to his father’s throne. He grew up to despise what his father stood for. After all, he helped bring the Irish king to his knees. His devotions now lie with the newly formed union between his Irish mob and the Russian Bratva.
An arrangement meant only to release physical tension, turns into so much more—it turns into everything. When a broken prince meets his match in a broken princess, their bond cannot be denied.

Russians, Irish and Italians oh my! Bought By The Badman is the latest book in the Russian Bratva series and was originally going to be the final book. I devoured this one. I have loved this entire series since I first read it but I really couldn’t put this one down even when I had to. Now there are some darker moments in this book like throughout the series so be prepared if you have potential triggers.
Giovanna and Aidan consumed my time. These two characters will earn your loyalty rather quickly. Aidan was sexy, he was dangerous, he could be sweet, and he could be a mean son of a bitch at times. I even wanted to take Aidan’s gun out and shoot him a time or ten, but I couldn’t help but still love him. I understood his line of thinking to an extent but at the same time I while wanting to shoot him I wanted to scream for him to open his damn eyes already. Giovanna, I felt for her. She should have been something precious instead she was cast aside so to speak but in the end, what happened to her brought her to Aidan, even if it was in a very unconventional way so to speak. The chemistry between these two is off the charts but it’s not only sexual, it is emotional as well.
Remember how I stated it was supposed to be the last book? Well Ms. Faiman has one more planned, maybe we can bug her to keep on even after that. Bought By The Badman has me wanting to read the entire series over again because I can’t help but love the badman, pun intended.
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.
Texas is now where we call home, where our boots rest, and where we're raising our two little boys and a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
