She was promised to me.
I was promised to her.
She was the daughter of a drug lord,
I was the cousin of one.
Together we could have been beautiful.
Oh, so beautiful.
But beautiful doesn’t factor into my life.
That was my life.
She’d had her taste of it.
But was she really ready for it?

She wouldn’t be prepared.
She could never be.

Think of the definition of this books title and it describes the character, Freya to a T as well as Viktor who never goes against his Boss and family. As the story of the Russian Mafia continues we see turns that we thought couldn't get any worse and oh they are good ones. TL always does an amazing job of getting you hooked from page one to the very end and then wanting more when we are done.
Freya poor girl is like a bouncing bean bag in the arranged marriage category. You will have to figure out if she gets any say or not when it comes to her life. We continue to see twists and turns, trying to determine who you can and cannot trust and will all the Defiance be the right or wrong move?
Viktor I will say is the more laid back of these Alpha men. He is no angel and is a devil just like the rest of his crew, but once he gets a taste of Freya can he show her and prepare her for what her life will be like in this crew?
If you have read the other books in this series and thought that Elina was a tough chick, think again cause Freya is one Firecracker or a chick that you do not want to mess with. She may be a girl, but I feel that she is more molded for the crew than some of the goons that we see glimpses off. You know she is the bomb if Anton and Death get a kick out of her.
We all could see what Freya and Viktor were blind to see. Oh I think they saw it, they just didn't expect for their lives to go in this direction. One taste is all you need and Viktor will show you a side that we never thought he had. Swoon on his moments of surprises is what I will say so that I don't give away any spoilers. See bad men can be sweet.
As I have said in the other two reviews for these books in this series, each can be read as a standalone; however, the Russian Mafia story does continue in each book. You will not be lost though as each book is about a different character. I definitely cannot wait for Anton's book to see where the story goes and who is going to knock him down a few inches. This is a dark read, but if you like these types of reads this one is for you.
