About this ebook

 One kill is all it takes for her to be mine.

She’s just a pawn in the Bratva’s games. A virginal prize, exchanged from one boss to another. Her perfect curves and that sparkling smile, she’d be deadly if she hadn’t been sheltered from the mafia's wicked world.

Now she’s being thrust into it.

A marriage to a man I know has a terrible temper and a cruel sense of torture.

She deserves better. Better than him.

Better than me.

But I never said I’d save her out of the goodness in my heart.

I’ll save her. I’ll protect her.

And I will claim her. Even if it means the wrath of every family in Brighton Beach descends upon me.

This novel is a full length romantic suspense novel with no cliffhangers. Explicit language. Safe from cheating.

Nikolai is a top assassin and is revered as such. He also has an agenda-Revenge. Anastasia is finally home after spending most of her life in boarding schools. It's been lonely, but she's just graduated high school and contemplating her future. Anastasia is spoiled and priveledged.

Nestor Koroleva is a powerful and deadly man, but when it comes to his daughter, he becomes a doting, loving father, one who wants Anastasia to do his bidding.

2 Stars Review by Sue Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Killing for Her by Alexis Abbot is a fast read about a mafia princess looking for independence from her controlling father and a mafia hitman looking for revenge. Anastasia is a princess of the Bratva. She is looking to strike out on her own. After so many years of being spoiled by her father, she is ready to give back to the community. Her father however, has other ideas. He has planned an arranged marriage for her to a man as old as he is! She of course does not want this but, she has no other choice. Nikolai is an assassin for the mafia. He lives for nothing but revenge and has no allegiance to anyone. Ana and Nikolai meet serendipitously. She is trying to escape her fate and he is ready to claim his revenge. Will Nikolai aid in her escape and will she be willing to help in his plan for revenge? I love the premise of this book and it caught may attention. The first third of the book had me intrigued and settling in to read an angsty mafia romance. Unfortunately, it fell below my expectations. The characters themselves were underdeveloped. There is really no introspection or growth that occurs with either character and because of that they were cardboard cut-out. I felt as though what makes them unique as characters was glossed over. There were secondary characters but they only had cameos to aid the plot. The relationship between Ana and Nikolai was a case of insta-love and because of this their love felt forced and happened too quickly. The writing itself was ok but some awkward wording such as: “I’m going to drain myself in you.”, “…my cock stiff as a pillar” and “..the sight of my spear..” lessened my enjoyment of the book. Overall this was an ok read. Recommended for those who enjoy a light, insta-love romance with a HEA.

Suspense, action, raw emotion I can be sure to get a sexy story full of suspense with lots of action each time I pick up a book by Alexis Abbott. Her characters are vivid, the emotions and turmoil are raw and real, and a plot that gets your heart pounding. Killing For Her did not disappoint and had a wonderfully satisfying ending. Anastasia is sheltered by her father, and although she has an idea his business has a criminal aspect to it, she is unaware she is a Bratva princess soon to be married to her father’s business partner. Nikolai wants revenge for what Anastasia’s father and his business partner did to his family. Now that he’s worked his way up to being the best enforcer, it’s time to act. When Anastasia learns the truth, she and Nikolai end up working together. You will be turning the pages as fast as you can for such a thrilling story from beginning to end. I received and voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
