Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance is the first book in the Russian Mob Chronicles- and part of the incredible Enigma series by Shandi Boyes. This is an exceptionally well written story- and nothing less than what I have come to expect from this consummate storyteller. She manages to enthrall me with every new release, each book leaving me in complete awe of her talents. This book can be read as a standalone but believe me when I say that one of Ms. Boyes books will never be enough and you will WANT to go back to read the other books in the series too.
This is a captivating mafia romance, with plenty of twists, danger, action, some violence, and sooooooo much more. I fell in love with the characters and their story, but then again, I expected nothing less from Ms. Boyes.
We met Nikolai previously in the series, and I was immediately intrigued by him- but I have to be honest and say that I wasn’t sure I was going to ‘like’ him from what we had seen of him. I didn’t think I could become invested in him or his story- but I WAS SO WRONG!!! Ms. Boyes wove her magic, drawing me into her story and showed me that there is so much more to Nikolai than I had ever expected- and I couldn’t have loved him more than I do. Justine is fantastic, I just love how perfect she is and how wonderful these two are together. There are so many layers, facets and interwoven details throughout this series, little things that you read several books back, end up coming into play in ways you never expected. Brilliant!!!!
I have developed a serious addiction to Ms. Boyes books- and it’s one I’m not about to cure anytime soon!
Bring on the next book!
Thank you, Ms. Boyes!
