Reviewed by: Yaya @MrsJCintron
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Length: 231 pages
Rating: 3.5 stars


Raised as a prototype for the Georgian Bratva’s obedience drug, 221 fails to think, act, or live for himself; he’s his master’s perfectly-crafted killing puppet. Standing at six-foot-six, weighing two-hundred-and-fifty pounds, and unrivaled in to-the-death combat, 221 successfully secures business for the Georgian Mafiya Boss of NYC, who rules the dark world of the criminal underground. Until his enemies capture him.

Talia Tolstaia dreams to break from the heavy clutches of Bratva life. She dreams of another life–away from the stifling leash of her Russian Bratva Boss father and from the brutality of her work at The Dungeon, her criminal family’s underground death-match enterprise. But when she stumbles upon her family’s captive who is more monster than man, she starts to see the man underneath. A powerful, beautiful, damaged man whose heart calls to hers. But sacrifices must be made–blood for blood…life for life…souls for scarred souls.

YaYa's Review


I wasn’t blown away by this book unlike Raze.  221’s story is intriguing and that part I really did enjoy, but this book had so much of Luka and Kisa, I almost thought it was their own story again.  Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Luka.  I loved how he went far and beyond to get his revenge for someone who is not of blood and Kisa standing by his side it shows what a great leader he is going to be. I know we have to see them again.  The future holds so much for them.


I could predict everything that was going to happen even the very end with the surprise of the unnamed female.  I like to be surprised and I haven’t been getting that lately.  The story was angsty and suspenseful enough, but I didn’t get any WTF moments besides what was happening to 221.  A lot of repetition too and that right there is my number one problem with stories. Fillers.  One more thing, I would love to learn another language as I am currently bilingual, but Russian seems hard, and I kept stopping to translate the meaning of some of the words.  So authors, just a friendly suggestion, whenever you’re going to use a foreign language phrase or words, maybe translating it in italics for the reader.


What I enjoyed most about this story was the broken Hero.  Nothing like feeling sad for a man especially Zaal.  You could feel his story in your bones and can’t help to want to hug him really tight.  But even better when there’s a broken Hero, the leading lady who’s going to rescue him.  Talia was great.  From the Insta-Love, to her beliefs thanks to her grandmother’s influence.  She didn’t give up on Zaal.  Not even after seeing how big and scary he was.  No, she took matters into her own hands and made that man HERS.


I’m sure there’s going to be another story, and yes, I will be reading it.  Reap and Raze are now together and who the hell is going to stop them?  I can only imagine someone trying to and what’s going to happen. Now that I want to read.  They may have been scarred but it’s because of that and love that they are one unstoppable force.  Happy Readings.
