Stolen by the Arziani Georgian crime mob as a child, 152 was raised and conditioned to be a Mona—the most subservient of the Arziani Blood Pit slaves.
Gorgeous and kind, she has been and under the imprisoning influence of the Type B drug and under the command of the Blood Pit Master’s sister, Mistress Arziani, for most of her life, until the Master calls her back home to Georgia.
He wants her under his total control, and Master always gets what he wants.
But when 152 is gifted to the Blood Pit’s fearsome champion death match fighter as a prize, 152 suddenly finds out that the men who appear most brutal, may just own the kindest hearts. And love may be found, even when living in hell.
Freedom, family, love, 152 will have to fight for what she wants and ultimately make an impossible choice.
5 brilliant stars to this Bratva/Georgian mafia romance!
I have loved this series since 818 ‘Razed’ his way into my heart. Since 221 ‘Reaped’ my affection and 194 ‘Ravaged’ my soul. Every book have kept me up all night and had me hooked to the pages even more than the previous one… and this one was no exception.
If you’ve read the other three books in this series, you have probably been anticipating this story – 152’s story – as much as I have. I am not ashamed to admit that I squeaked and jumped around my living room like a five-year-old on a candy rush.
152 is the sister to 194 (AKA Valentin) who we met in #3 and this is her story!!
901 and 152 live in Hell. Or the closest thing to Hell as can be found on earth. One is a Blood Pit fighter and the other is a whore to the top devil of this Hell hole.
This tale was amazingly woven with great character development. The way that the storyline progressed really made me feel their connection take place and evolve into so much more than they knew they had in them to feel.
This is the final book in this fantastic series and I for one am excruciatingly sad to see them all go. BUT one of the supporting characters really have me hoping for a spinoff story in the future since I would love to hear the tale of the disfigured chiri. I swear to everything holy (and unholy if that’s your thing) that you will not regret reading this story. But I would strongly urge you to start the series from the beginning since the amount of supporting characters from previous books make it a bit hard to follow if you don’t. Enjoy it – I sure did!
Having been born and raised as a Teesside Smoggie, Tillie, at age nineteen, moved forty miles north to the ‘Toon’, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, where she attended Newcastle University and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts honours degree in Religious Studies. She returned two years later to complete a Post-Graduate Certificate in Teaching High School Social Studies. Tillie, regards Newcastle to be a home from home and enjoyed the Newcastle Geordie way of life for seven ‘proper mint’ and ‘lush’ years.
One summers day, after finishing reading her thousandth book on her much loved and treasured Kindle, Tillie turned to her husband and declared, “D’you know, I have a great idea for a story. I could write a book.” Several months later, after repeating the same tired line at the close of another completed story, she was scolded by her husband to shut up talking about writing a novel and “just bloody do it!” For the first time in eleven years, Tillie actually took his advice (he is still trying to get over the shock) and immediately set off on a crazy journey, delving deep into her fertile imagination.
Tillie, ever since, has written from the heart. She combines her passion for anything camp and glittery with her love of humour and dark brooding men (most often muscled and tattooed – they’re her weakness!). She also has a serious side (believe it or not!) and loves to immerse herself in the complex study of World Religions, History and Cultural Studies and creates fantasy stories that enable her to thread serious issues and topics into her writing — yep, there’s more to this girl than profanity and sparkles!
After six years of teaching high school Social Studies and following her Professional Rugby Player husband around Europe, they have finally given up their nomadic way of life and settled in Calgary, Alberta where Tillie spends most of her days (and many a late night) lost in a writing euphoria or pursuing a dazzling career as a barrel-racing, tasselled-chap wearing, Stetson-sporting cowgirl… Ye-haw!
