Dark Mafia Prince by New York Times bestselling author, Annika Martin is LIVE!
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.
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.
I have to say this ….. I fucking missed the hell out of Annika Martin!! I fell in love with her style and brain it seems like forever ago when I read Kinky Bank Robbers and I waited patiently for something new and exciting and edgy to come and here we are … YES!
The story of Aleksio and Mira is not your typical ‘cookie-cutter’ romance. Annika dances to her own tune and she is quite good at it. THIS is the beginning of a reckoning story that will actually span three books, laced and sprinkled with a romance. The story is not really about the journey of Mira and Aleksio, altho they DO have one. It is the journey of Aleksio having his vengeance on the past and bringing his brothers back together. I know this all sounds rather vague, but do you really want details? Do you really want to know anything before you read it happens? Because the only way to REALLY appreciate Annika Martin’s story-telling skill is to go into a story blind. She uses powerful imagery and detailed characterization that will pull you into the story and have you devouring every word. You will be sucked into the world of the biggest Albanian mafia family in Chicago from page one!
This is NOT a rainbows and gumdrops story but OMG it’s fucking beautiful. Both Mira and Aleksio are destined to be and it is a ridiculously beautiful thing to read. Yes, Aleksio IS (not to mince words) a cold-blooded killer, but that is just one facet of him. With Mira he is so much more. And you will not be able to not fall in love with him.
I was riveted by everything in this story. From the mafia arc to the rekindling of two people who knew each other as children and loved each other as purely as children do to the love they now build on as adults.
Now I patiently wait for Viktor ……….
