Summary

Talia
I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away. Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. Nothing scares me anymore. Until him. He makes the numbness go away. He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers. A gilded prison. A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to. He thinks he's caged me, but soon I'm going to fly.
Alexei
I live by a code. The Vory code. In this mafiya world, there are traditions. Expectations. She does not care for these things. She does not care about anything. She thinks she has me fooled with her haunted eyes. What she can't know is that I see her better than most. She wants to fly. But I'm going to clip her wings. And make her my wife.

A wonderful dark read - perfect narration

I'm just loving this series (even though this is book 3, it's only my second book), I'm definitely going to be reading book 2. Each book can be read as a standalone. I love these possessive hot alpha mafia guys so much. Zavarelli has a way with words and her wonderfully gritty characters made this story all the more interesting, I never knew what was going to happen next. Told in dual POV we get to see inside the complex minds of both Alexei and Talia, two broken people who have been let down by those who should have been protecting them most. Alexei was so stubborn, I wanted to shake him to make him see sense, I did however love his take charge attitude, his ability to protect his secret and his vulnerability and his alpha dominant side. The chemistry between these two was off the charts. Fantastic supporting characters. I can't get enough of these guys. Dark romance is a favourite genre of mine, so this hit the spot perfectly. Tracy Marks nails it again playing both characters perfectly, she is fast becoming a favourite narrator of mine.

Deep, Dark, Raw and Emotional

This book (and series) is definitely not for the faint of heart. This story is deep, dark and emotional. It doesn't shy away from mafia issues like human trafficking, drugs, betrayal, and murder. It is extremely descriptive and detailed with characters that are beyond flawed but not beyond redemption. It's a gripping story for those who love raw, suspenseful love stories.

Tracy Marks narrates these books wonderfully. Her accents and clear voice make listening a pleasure.

Note: This book includes descriptive sex scenes, violence, and strong language. This is definitely an Adults Only listen.

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

Not sure how to rate this one

Would you be willing to try another book from A. Zavarelli? Why or why not?

Yes, but I'm not sure I can articulate why that is. The books in this series have gotten progressively darker, but something keeps me listening.

What about Tracy Marks’s performance did you like?

Her telling of the story was part of what saved it for me. I love listening to her accents.

Any additional comments?

I looked back at my review of the first book where I had mentioned a rape scene. Usually I shy away from violence, sexual or otherwise in any way, shape or form. That said, someone I follow recommended these books so I gave them a try.

What happens to Talia has to be every woman's nightmare. She survives a crappy childhood only to be betrayed in one of the worst ways. Then she's saved only to be betrayed again by someone she's come to love. Not a fan of the back and forth in a story, but something about this book worked. Maybe because there was some justice for the bad guys.

The ending was a little abrupt, but maybe that's where the author was led by the story. On to the next book.
