Dangerous. Deadly. And most of all, devastating.
He’s the king of New Orleans.
Ruler of the Russian mafia and my best friend’s oldest, mouthwatering brother.
On Halloween night my last year in college, I gave him everything. My body. My heart. My soul.
He burned it all to the ground with the first ray of dawn.
Lessons learned. I’ve moved on. Now, five years later, I have a career I love, a boyfriend. But Vasili is back in my life again. A temptation I don’t need.
One thing is for certain. Nikolaev always settles the score.
He’ll destroy everything and everyone, including my boyfriend.
The question is… What is Vasili’s end game?
Will he destroy me all over again or will I be the Phoenix rising from the ashes he left behind and take what I've always wanted? Him.
