And when I’m done tormenting him, I will offer a trade: her life for his.

I owe him a slow, painful death. Revenge is my due.

“You’re holding me hostage.” I’m catching up.


“He will kill you.” I say it not as a threat, but with total sincerity. My father is a ruthless businessman. He thinks I don’t know he’s a crime lord, but I’m not stupid. I know everyone around him lives in fear. I have long believed my mother abandoned me to save her own life. Or maybe that’s just what a girl of six tells herself when her mother disappears one day.

A story that ends in a happy ending at a later date. My mother returning to me when she can. Reclaiming her beloved daughter.

But, of course, she never came.

Maybe she’s dead.

Maybe he killed her.

“He will want me dead,” Adrian agrees, like he’s content with this knowledge.

A cold chill runs across my skin. “Are you asking for ransom?”

Adrian hesitates. “Yes.”

More cold prickles shoot down my spine. There’s something more to this. “What is the ransom?” My words come out as barely more than a whisper.

He stares at me like he’s not sure about his choice. “Five million.”

“Five million?” I sound shrill. “Is that all? You know he has at least a hundred million, right?” I know because I heard him bragging to a woman about it once.

“He has to bring the money himself.” There’s something terribly sinister about the way Adrian says the words, and I suddenly realize what this is: a trap.

And I’m the bait.




My ARC Review:

A good addition to this Chicago Bratva series – Adrian is the Cleaner, who we have met in a previous book, responsible to fire to a warehouse in an attempt to kill the man who kidnapped his sister, Nadia. This is his story and his plan to get further revenge on Poval, by kidnapping his daughter!

Adrian has found Poval’s daughter Kateryna, and is watching her to learn more about her while he finalises his plans to capture her to get back at Poval. The problem is Kateryna turns out to be nothing like he expected!

Kateryna shares no love for her father, who has no time for her and never has, she is sent to a private school to keep her out of the way. Kateryna dresses and behaves in a certain way, relishing the way men respond to her, something that is missing in her life. She loves the Daddy/Master kink, but has not found a partner that responds how she likes, until she is kidnapped by Adrian, who finds he very attracted to Kateryna and finds he enjoys punishing her as much as she enjoys his punishments.

A good quick read, much more in the way of kink that of bratva in this one, but no less enjoyable. Adrian and Kateryna are a perfect match for one another and his plans for revenge take a back seat as his heart takes over and his Bratva family pull together to help him out. A good addition to this fantastic series, I am looking forward to the next book all about Adrian’s sister, Nadia.
