Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Maura Harper

Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1)Wayward by Via Mari
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

If you have read this author before, you know the amazing ride she takes the reader on.

This is the first book of a new series and there were a few times I wanted to throw my Kindle against a wall and scream. There were other times I chuckled at the back and forth of the characters and others where my heart broke.

This is a well-developed plot and the way characters are introduced held my attention from beginning to end. There is a certain delicateness yet wicked strength about this book (I know that’s a total contradiction). It ebbs and flows as the story evolves and the secondary characters play an important role in moving the story forward.

I absolutely will continue reading this story and I am adding it to my TBR again before I begin the next in the series.

I have always enjoyed reading this author’s works and recommend her and this story.

4 out of 5 stars

Shattered is the first book in Via Mari’s Torzial Affair Series, this is the second series I plan on reading from this author. The first I read was great but I actually feel more invested in this one.
Via Mari is great about addressing this before jumping into the novel, but some readers may find subject manner triggering.
We met Jenny in Via Mari’s Prestian Series and she was a character I really took a liking to. I’m thrilled to see we are going to see her story.
Overall I’m impressed all around with this book and excited to see how the series plays out.

Do yourself a favor and (1) immediately add this book to your must read list and (2) read every single book by this author. Via Mari has done it again, weaving a spellbinding tale that leaves the reader whiteknuckled and riveted. I loved every page and simply couldn’t read it fast enough. Amazing!

I love this book! This is the first book in this new series for this author. Her writing style is creative and engaging. The characters pop off the pages and make the story seem real. They are connectable and relatable, they make the story. In this book, we get to see Jay’s story and what a story it is. He meets Sasha, problem is she has mafia connections. There is just something about her he can’t get out of his mind. Will he be able to move past that and take her heart? A must read!

The story Wayward (Billionaire Bodyguards Book 1) by Via Mari is an amazing book to read. It pulled me in right from the start and didn’t let me go until I had read the last page. I loved reading about the characters of Sasha Koslov and Jay. Sasha is a Russian Ballerina. She is smart, beautiful, and independent. Sasha is a character that I had empathy for how she has been treated and the experiences that she has had. She is someone that I wanted to find happiness. Jay is the security/bodyguard for two of the wealthiest men in the world. He is trustworthy and can be counted on in a crisis. These two have an attraction/chemistry together. What does the future hold for Sasha and Jay? Will her past be too much for him to overcome? Will they act on their feelings for one another? Read this book to find out. This is a story that is suspenseful and there are times that I was turning pages to find out what happens next. You can feel the emotions/feelings are strong between Jay and Sasha. There are some very steamy scenes that make the temperature in the room rise. You can feel the passion and desire that burns between the two. There is also bantering that goes on between them. I enjoyed reading about the additional characters that interact with Sasha and Jay. Don’t miss out on a book that has parts that will make you swoon. Highly recommended.

Sasha Koslov is a Russian Ballerina, on an extended visa in the United States. She is a vision to uphold, strong, and regal to those who watch her perform and follow her fame, but they don’t know her secrets or the heartache she endures.

Jay is the head of an elite security team, paid to protect two of the wealthiest men in the world. He has never once felt the need to protect someone outside of the job, but there is something about Sasha that calls to him on a primal level. He has wanted her since the very first time he saw her, mesmerized by her beauty, that graceful body, and those penetrating sky-blue eyes.

When he discovers her past, the mafia connections and the implications it has to the billionaires he protects, will it be too much to overcome or with methodical planning can he tame and capture the heart of his wayward angel?

Via Mari was raised in both the United States and United Kingdom and travels extensively. As a child she spent uncountable hours traveling and always enjoyed reading to pass the time and this pattern has continued in her adult life.

In fact, you can still find her curled up in an overstuffed chair, when the wood fire is crackling and popping, reading a page-turning novel until the early hours of the morning, especially during the harsh winters of the Midwestern United States or engrossed in a book as she travels from place to place researching for her own novels, or attending conferences.

Via’s inspiration to publish stemmed from research as she began writing love scenes for her own novels. It became apparent there seemed to be a cultural divide between what people believed was normal or vanilla sexual behavior and that which people considered BDSM and she felt compelled enough to write about the differences, similarities, and extreme feelings and levels of trust individuals in dominant and submissive relationships must have, and the desires that are at the heart of these relationships.

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) by Via Mari – Review by Michelle Austin

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1)Shattered by Via Mari
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered was a great 5 star read and book one in The Torzial Affair series.
I was pulled right in from the beginning and couldn’t put it down until I was done. This is even better than the first series and I loved that one as well.

Jenny and Brian meet while they are best man and maid of honor for their best friends wedding. They have an instant connection that gets a little heated, Brian does something that triggers an unexpected reaction from Jenny and she flees.

He is intrigued by her and wants to know more about her and why she fled. He typically doesn’t want anything more than one night but something is different this time.

Jenny owns Torzial and she doesn’t really know who Brian is. He’s got a lot more power than she realizes. She was instantly attracted to him and when these two reconnect we get quite the hot and steamy scenes.

There is so much going on and my emotions were all over the place. There are some things from the past that come up and create challenges. I really loved both Brian and Jenny they really complimented each other. I will also say that there are some scenes that may be triggers for some. All of the secondary characters were great. Via does a great job of pulling you right in with her writing. I highly recommend this series and the one prior you will love them. I look forward to reading more from this author.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered (The Torzial Affair Book 1) By Via Mari. So let me start by saying these characters will be on my mind for a while because I truly didn’t want this book to end and I’m ready for more. This story definitely may have some triggers for readers but I think the author writes them well. I had quite the emotional roller coaster ride with this book and I loved every minute of it. From page one I knew I’d be up well into the night and that’s just what happened because I couldn’t put it down. I love the writing style, it’s paced nicely and I never felt confusion or that it lacked anything. I’m excited to see where the author takes readers next. Five stars and my highest recommendation!

Shattered by Via Mari
Four Stars

Shattered is the first book in the Torzial Affair series by Via Mari. The Torzial Affair is a spin of the Prestian Series. I highly recommend you read The Prestian Series first because it will give you the background on all of the characters featured in this book. Shattered had me hooked from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until I read the last. This is Jenny and Brian’s story. It is full of action and the chemistry they have is off the charts. The story flowand I couldn’t believe I came to the end as soon as I did. I can’t wait to read the next book in this series. If you like Billionaire book this is the perfect book to read.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shattered is the opening to Via Mari’s Torzial Affair series that is a spinoff of her Prestian series. I suggest you read that series before you immerse yourself into the Torzial Affair series! I know, you could read it as a standalone but you will get so much more out of it if you have read the Prestian series prior. There is some overlap at the end of the first series timewise but Torzial Affair is a totally different story!
Torzian Affair is the story of Jenny and Brian and Shattered is the beginning of it. We have two wounded hearts that have built walls around themselves, for different reasons but still … Via Mari gives us a very intense and steamy romance that touches on some very sensitive and touchy topics – rape, domination and submission …
I loved the opening and I cannot wait for the next step in their relationship!
