review || DARK MAFIA PRINCE { blog tour } by Annika Martin

Annika Martin | June 28, 2016 | Romantic Suspense
Dark Mafia Prince, book 1




Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.

Like you think I’m not a monster.

Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.

Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.

I spent years making myself invisible.
A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you came back, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.

Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.

But I remember your smile and those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.

Before they told us the prince was dead.

{ review } .

This was a well-crafted story of a man wanting vengeance for the family he lost -- as he works on putting his generation back together. He's found one of his baby brothers, but now Aleksio and Viktor need to find their youngest brother. And to do that, they need to go to the one who took their family apart.


Mira cried the day Aleksio and his family were laid to rest. He was her best friend, the one who kicked down sandcastles. Now, he's come back -- but he believes she's the person her father and company made her be for public, a fashionista who only cares about money and clothing, which couldn't be further from the truth.

When I started this book, I was sucked into what held promise of being a dark romance. I was excited to see how this one would be put together, and when the hero would have his change of heart. Unfortunately, this book never truly got to the dark aspect. Aleksio and his hatred did not last nearly long enough, and because of that, the re-growth of feelings between Aleksio and Mira felt too fast. He was too forgiving, she was too forgiving... However... I did like that Aleksio became incredibly protective over her and had a hard time when he realized Mira liked life a little hard, just like he tried to make his punishments.


Aside from the relationship aspect though, I'm extremely excited to continue watching the journey as Kiro is found. Just when they think they know....
