BLURB

Demons so deep they destroy us…

Every part of Adrian Ivanov is pure, unable to ignore, male virility. He’s arrogant. Protective. Sweet and intensely attentive. On rare occasions, outright vicious.
If only his soul weren’t tortured over who he is and what he has become. It makes him hide it all from me, proclaiming the truth will ruin us. No matter how much I insist anything he confesses won’t deter my heart, his ghosts won’t allow him.
But they aren’t apparitions. The present collides with the past in a dangerous and twisted game he doesn’t even know he’s a pawn in. It causes everything in our future to remain in jeopardy.
There’s a choice, yet nothing hard in life comes without consequences.
He’s my vicious protector…

Vicious Protector is the jaw-dropping fourth installment of the Mafia Wars series. It’s an interconnecting stand-alone Dark Mafia Romance, guaranteed to have an HEA.

Mafia Wars #4 by Maggie Cole

My Review….

Trigger warnings are in the blurb, so read them before you decide on this book.

Book four of this series, and the storyline just keeps evolving…..The storyline is always evolving (that’s why you really should read them in order)

The Ivanov family have skated the fine line where the law is concerned. Being owned by a rival mafia family has always stuck in their throat, getting free of them would have given them their lives back, but they are still being haunted by their past. And traitors in their companies aren’t helping, the Ivanov family need to end it, once and for all!!

Adrian is cousin to Maksim, Boris, Dimitri and Sergey, and brother to Obrecht, they are bodyguards to the brothers, but they also have independent businesses. He’d gladly lay his life down for his cousins and brother, and he knows they would do the same for him.

Skylar is an aspiring fashion designer, tied in with a company that takes her designs as passes them off as their own! She’s not happy with it, but it’s a foot in the door, and maybe one day she’ll have a label of her own.

These characters have met in previous books, and the chemistry is almost instant. But in this book we delve deeper into both their stories and how they almost didn’t make it as a couple!! Adrian is fascinated with the magenta haired beauty, her spirit and sass has him frustrated and aroused whenever he’s around her, but he can’t forget she sat on the lap of his bitter enemy! A night out was supposed to be fun, to let off some steam, but it all turns horribly wrong! And Skylar is left feeling confused and hurt by the man she likes! I did think he could have been less of a dick! She tried explaining the facts to him, but he really wouldn’t give her a chance. And then to do what he did just made me so cross! If that had been me, I wouldn’t have entertained him again.

But as he guards her best friend, it’s inevitable they meet, but every time they meet it usually with animosity! But hate soon turns to passion, and passion turns into love. But both Skylar and Adrian have been burned by love before! And so a dance of one moving away from the other begins…. And just when Skylar begins to fully trust Adrian, a blast from his past interrupts the tenuous relationship. Skylar was with a man as he thought she loved, until he began to show his true colours, so trust is a big thing for her, and because Adrian can’t tell her what’s going on with his cousins, she thinks the worse! Can she really be with a man who can’t tell her where he’s going and what he’s doing?

Love this series, it just gets better and better. Betrayal and lies are spun throughout this book, passion will have you reaching for the fire blanket to put out these flames from your kindle! And you’ll want to cheer and throttle Adrian as he blunders and stomps his way through this book!

We’ve also been treated to a few more stories, the O’Malley’s (Nora’s family) are playing a bigger role, and so it made sense to give them books too.

So grab this book, it’s a great read.

Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley 👩🏻‍💻 I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🤨 I’m almost 50 🤫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday 😥 and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad 🥗 chef 👩‍🍳 in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here 😉 My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here 😉 I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 💕so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) 😉 <img src="https://d1vbo0kv48thhl.cloudfront.net/images/featured_book_reviewer_big.png"
