FIVE 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hats from Britt!
Me after finishing the last book this author released “This is the best book Hayley Faiman has ever written!”
To which Hayley Faiman responded with the book equivalent of “Hold my beer.” And flat out proved that we haven’t seen anything yet when I comes to her talent.
I fell in love with things I never thought I would reading Collared by the Badman. These characters and Hayley’s writing are just so absolutely incredible things I typically shy away from became something I loved in this book. Seriously. I am blown away. My exact response to trying to write this review was “I can’t word because the book was too good.” The point to all this rambling is bear with me while I try to pull my brain back into the real world after being lost in Sergei and Raisa for hours.
Their story is not for the faint of heart. Blending dark and sweet so seamlessly in a beautiful, complex, passionate, and raw story that steals your breathe as it steals your heart. I was left swooning over a man for reasons I never had before when it came to Sergei. Living up to all that the Bratva is, he is not an easy or gentle man in the least, but the way he is with Raisa? *sigh* it made my heart soar. There is no easy, sweet path for these two but that doesn’t take away from them being one of the most magnificent couples I’ve ever read.
Raisa and all she goes through is a hard pill to swallow. Multiple times I was left with my heart aching for her. All she endures doesn’t stop her from being stronger than nearly every heroine I’ve ever read. She truly is Sergei’s perfect match in every sense.
Overflowing with serious, and I mean SERIOUS heat, intense emotion, and edge of your seat action this book is a nonstop roller coaster that I never wanted to end!
I was born and raised in California. My husband and I met when I was just 16. We were married a few years later, moving to Oregon while he was in the US Coast Guard.
