Blurb: Here comes trouble…
Men. Women. Drugs. Dima Zhirkov’s favorite things. Add in the element of danger and he should be right as rain. But not today. It’s not working, hasn’t for a long time. He’s grasping at the flimsiest of straws to prove he’s indeed strong enough to run his streets. Until he sets eyes on him. In the midst of a room full of strangers, Dima is drawn to a man as cold and dangerous as he’s beautiful. Captivated, Dima embarks on a ruthless campaign to get his new toy into bed.
Here comes the danger…
Xavier “X” Storm is content to pull the strings while someone else handles the day-to-day dealings of his gang, The Rude Boys. He’s after what Dima holds closest—the Coney Island streets. He contracts out the job of killing the Russian, except Dima isn’t that easy to kill. When he suddenly shows up in X’s path, tempting him to indulge in the dirtiest play, he finds Dima isn’t all that easy to shake, either. His cocky attitude and rough submission tempts X to go where he’d vowed to never return, and they plunge head first into an affair fueled by possessive obsession.
Run for cover
Sex and pain Dima can handle, and X delivers the most depraved kind. Their connection is explosive, their games addictive, but Dima can end it whenever he wishes. He doesn’t see that X is breaking him down, giving Dima everything he wants and even more than he ever thought to need. By the time, he realizes who X is and what he wants, Dima is raw, and bullet riddled. It’s run or fight. And Dima doesn’t back down. Neither does X.
Warning: Includes strong BDSM elements.

Review: I will start with a warning. This isn’t for everyone. There is lots of violence, sadism and masochism, breath-play and rape. This story isn’t for the faint of heart.
Dima is a Russian mob boss, tossed in after his father’s death. His brother wants his position and the elders want his brother in position since he is their puppet. They don’t like Dima’s gentler ways or ideas for change.
Xavier is a complicated man. He likes giving pain and is highly sought in the club scene. Dima is given a pass by Mateo to go here when he finally decided to get his hidden needs met. Dima see Xavier in action and is stricken with obsession to get Xavier to hurt him. Be his new toy. Xavier finally is cornered and one taste of Dima and he is hooked. He can’t get enough of the man. But if Dima finds out that Xavier is more than a high-class lawyer it could end everything.
I don’t know who I liked the most or pitied the most, Xavier or Dima. I found them both hot, intriguing, powerful yet intriguing and sexy. I could see a vulnerability in each man’s strong interior and see how each fit the other so perfectly.
I absolutely loved every terrifying, intriguing, breathtaking, sexy minute! This story is hotter than a forest fire in California! There are so many twists and turns it’s hard to second guess it.
If you like stories out of the box, pain, violence, breath play, fetishes, gangsters, ad mobs, lots of angst, twists and turns and love that can triumph it all you really should read this! !
