Deep, dark and dangerous.
Good and evil at war within him.
I’m caught in the cross-fire,
but I want to be here.
A cold-hearted man, or is he?
I’m about to find out.
She’s breezed into my life
like a latter-day Mary Poppins
A sassy girl from England
with the voice of an angel,
and the body of a goddess.
I need her in my life like a bullet in the brain.
Everything about her tempts me.
But she’s an itch I won’t be scratching.
Except, the best-laid plans have a habit of going wrong.
Soon I’ll find out what really matters,
and that the worst lies
are the lies you tell to yourself.

This is my first book by this author and it did not disappoint. We get to meet Zoe and Taras. Oh and let’s not forget Emma!!
Zoe is a British nanny who Taras the Russian mafia kingpin has hired to watch over his 11 year old daughter Emma. Zoe and Emma take to one another and bond rather quickly. Zoe can see Emma wants a better relationship with her father and she sets out to make that happen. I really liked that Zoe did not let Taras get away with a while lot. Especially where Emma is concerned. She is the very bright light to his very dark heart. She makes him see there is more to life than the loneliness he has grown accustomed too.
Taras being the big bad mafia kingpin is used to having things done the way he wants them. He does not like to be questioned as expects his employees to follow his rules. That is until Miss Zoe comes into the picture. The walls he has built start to crumble and he begins to see what he has truly been missing.
Now why the 4 stars… Yes this is a Bratva story, but it is a very mild story. There are components, but I guess I’m blood hungry and thought there would be more of the Bratva. Will this stop me from reading her other titles? Uh no it will not!!!!
