OWNED BY THE MAN I BETRAYED
Eight years ago I uttered a lie that changed a man’s life.
My father banished him from his bratva cell. From the country.
Now he’s back to take my inheritance. My life. Not through murder, but marriage.
And my own father arranged it.
Maxim thinks he can make me submit to his will. He thinks he gets to call all the shots.
I wanted him once and he refused me. I won’t fall for him again.
And I don’t plan to cave.
Not even when he makes me tremble with need…

My ARC Review:
The second book of the Chicago Bratva series, this one revolves around Ravil’s right hand man, Maxim and the girl now turned woman, Sasha, who got him ejected from Russia for her spoilt behaviour.
Maxim is now happy in Chicago with Ravil and has earnt the nickname of the Fixer, due to him sorting all the problems out. But he is recalled back to Russia to honour his dying ex boss Igor’s last request….. to marry his daughter who is the heir to his money. Maxim and Sasha do not see eye to eye after he was forced to leave Russia due to her lies. But he is determined to take his promise seriously and protect Sasha, as well as make her submit to be his wife. Sasha has very different plans…..
Sasha is a regular spoilt mafia princess and behaves atrociously at times, but there are reasons behind her behaviour as you learn though the story. This still didn’t help to warm me to her very much, her strops and behaviour did nothing for me. Maxim on the other hand was hot, caring and protective and did everything he could to work out Sasha’s personality and help her with her insecurities. Maxim had a very harsh upbringing also, to such an extent where he believes women to be nothing but liars and schemers, and is hoping that Sasha does not turn out to be exactly that.
They have a lot of issue to work out, but they start off so well, with Sasha unable to believe just how much support Maxim offers her, believing in her dreams, so much so that she starts to fall for him. But of course there are people after her and her money, danger lurks around the corner, but the threat turns out to be very close to home….
I did enjoy this, there’s plenty of hot sizzling scenes between Maxim and Sasha, as well as plenty of drama, betrayal, distrust, revenge and heartbreak. I loved his vulnerability, it made it so much hotter!! Sasha is a difficult character to like, she pushed my buttons the wrong way, but I understood where she was coming from. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series!
