Genres: Romantic Suspense

I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.
I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.
Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.
If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?

Torrid is book 2 of the Sordid Series and it’s a Standalone. Sordid is the infamous book that was banned by Amazon last year. This is Vasilije’s, story. Get comfortable, once you start, you won’t want to stop until the very end.

Oksana Kuznetsov is the illegitimate daughter of Sergey Petrov, head of the Chicago branch of the Russian Mafia. They deal in drugs, guns and women. Her Russian mother was an opera singer who died when she was 5 years old and Oksana was sent to live with her father and his family. While her stepmother tolerated her Sergey openly disdained her. The only ally in the household is her half-brother, Konstantine. He actually came to her rescue when Ilia (Sergey’s right hand man) tried, the first time, to take advantage of her.  It did not turn out well for him when he tried again. If it weren’t for Konstantine’s help, she’s not sure what her father would’ve done to her. So when the opportunity to go undercover and spy on the Markovic Empire comes along, she takes it. Not to help her father, but to double-cross him. She’s going in, knowing full well she might not come out. But it’s a chance she’s willing to take.

“I was a pawn in the game he was playing. Easy to move and sacrifice. Goran might be pissed at Vasilije, but who would be the most likely target of his uncle’s anger? I searched deep inside myself for the revenge that burned and fanned the flames. I wasn’t a pawn. I was a motherf*cking queen, the most powerful player on the board. Vasilije would be my pawn. A piece I’d move to get exactly what I wanted.”

Vasilije is the 24-year old nephew of Goran Markovic, head of the South Chicago Serbian Mafia. His mother died tragically when he was a child. His father died last year and someone needs to be next in line. Since Luka, his older brother, wanted no part of being the successor, his uncle has decided Vasilije’s his number two man. A role he takes to like a duck to water. After intercepting a Russian shipment containing women meant for sex trafficking, Vasilije takes one of them for himself. This was the Russian’s plan since the woman he claimed is Oksana. She’s in; all she has to do is survive Vasilije, plant listening devices and when the time comes, kill her father. Sounds like a solid plan. Vasilije also has a plan, one of retribution against his uncle. He and Luka discovered Goran’s role in their mother’s death last year. And they’ve been plotting revenge ever since.

“Now that Vasilije’s staked his claim, Goran’s going to try to take you away from him.”

“Our deal was for Vasilije, and you told a table full of men that you’re a man of you word.”

“You changed the deal first. Don’t be surprised if Goran make a play for you before then. Good luck, Oksana. You’ll need it, now that you’ve become a pawn in their game.”

“He was forgetting how a pawn who survived crossing the board could be promoted to a queen. I could go from the weakest player to the strongest one in a single move.”

I loved Torrid! I stayed up half the night, franticly reading chapter after chapter, to the very end. Vasilije is ruthless and at times I was so infuriated at the way he treated Oksana. But she’s no pushover, despite her meek and submissive manner; she proved she had an iron will that might be stronger than his. These damaged souls seemed destined to be together. Vasilije and Oksana are hell bent on revenge against the people who have wronged them. And how sweet it is!
