Dark Mafia Prince by New York Times bestselling author, Annika Martin
Blurb:Aleksio Don’t look at me like that. So trusting. Like you think I’m not a monster. Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will. Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by piece, to save my brother. I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died. And when you look at me like that, I die again. Mira I spent years making myself invisible. A good girl, apart from the noise. Then you came back, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit. Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say. But I remember your smile and those sunny days. Before they lowered your small casket into the ground. Before they told us the prince was dead.
Review by: Leeann
So we have Aleksio who is supposed to be dead ad Mira who is the daughter of the man who is supposed to have gotten rid of him and his entire family when he was just 9 years old. Interesting match..
This was an overall good read. There were some moments that had me scratching my head a bit but they weren't significant enough to take away from what was happening in the overall big picture.
The story is fast paced and action packed. There is no real down time for these characters. They are on the go right from the beginning.
The support characters are an odd bunch and quite entertaining although some of them were a bit trusting of their captive!
Mira comes across initially as a strong woman but when it comes down to it, the two people she loves most in the world are at war with each other and she is smack bang in the middle. She is torn and confused and really doesn't know who to trust.
Aleksio is many things, but a liar is not one of them. He has grown up learning how to be tough and manipulative but he finds when it comes to Mira, he just can't carry though with his threats.. his love for her is too strong.
Viktor, Aleksio's younger brother has no such feelings. He is ruthless and more than willing to go on a killing spree to get them what they want. He is actually quite unpredictable and therefore scary.
During their quest to get to Aleksio and Viktor's baby brother before the bad guys do, they learn alot about themselves, their pasts and each other. Secrets are revealed and the scars run deep. There are some sexual tensions and situations, but the story is not over taken with it.
If you like fast paced, action packed and highly entertaining stories with a high level of mystery thrown in, you will definitely enjoy this book!
It is a standalone and does not end on a cliffhanger, but the quest does continue in book 2.
