I have read several of Shandi Boyes’s novels before, but I have to say I think that the Russian Mob Chronicles will be my new favorites from her going forward. Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance is so far my top favorite of hers, and I look forward to seeing if she tops it with her upcoming books in the Chronicles. I was blown away with how exquisite Boyes writing allows the story to just flow effortlessly for the reader once again. I was consumed from beginning to end and found myself finishing this novel fairly quickly in one sitting. I just couldn’t bear to walk away from it for one moment.
MmmMmm… I love secret love affairs. Shandi hit it out of the ball park with Justine and Nikolai. It wasn’t an easy wham bam and all steamy love scenes type of novel either. There were layers of stories and many different things going on that brought things together and led them to where they were. I am highly curious as to how things will eventually play out in the long run for everyone. I wouldn’t say this necessarily ended on a cliffhanger, but there is more to this story that I need to find out as soon as possible!
