Kisa Volkova is the only daughter of Kirill "the Silencer" Volkov, head of the infamous Red bosses of New York's Russian Bratva. Her life is protected, but it's also a virtual prison. Her father's savage treatment of his rivals and his lucrative and coveted underground gambling ring - the Dungeon - ensure that too many enemies lurk at their door. She dreams to be set free. While working for her church - the only reprieve in her constant surveillance - Kisa stumbles across a tattooed, scarred, but stunningly beautiful homeless man on the streets. Something about him stirs feelings deep within her - familiar yet impossibly forbidden desires. He's a man beyond saving, but Kisa becomes obsessed with him. Yearns for him. Craves his touch. Needs to possess this mysterious man, this man they call Raze.

Raze wasn't his real name, nor was 818.... he didn't know what it was because since he was a very young teen he has been brainwashed, injected, abused, treated like dirt, caged like an animal and used daily for one-on-one fighting to the death for gambler's kicks. It was a brutal life - kill or be killed and, as time went on, he forgot everything about his past..... except a name, a place and the word revenge because those words had been carved in his cell so he'd never ever forget. And when he finally escaped that's where he headed..... but he found much much more than he was expecting.
Kisa is a Mafia Princess who had been so in love with the boy she'd grown up with and, as the years passed by they became inseparable soul-mates destined to marry but tragedy struck when it was reported that he'd killed her brother and stabbed their friend. The punishment was a children's work camp but en-route his coach was in an accident with no survivors and only burnt bodies left. Now she was engaged to the friend who'd been stabbed, he was the Mafia Triad's heir which made him untouchable but he was also a junkie whose nature was to be sexually violent and demanding, abusive, dominant, crazy, jealous and unpredictable he treated Kisa like his prisoner and yet he couldn't live without her.
Her only escape was to help the Church feed the homeless a couple of times a week while he was off partying and whoring around. Then one night her life changed when a hero came to her rescue, a huge hero who was wearing a hoodie pulled down over his face, there was no words but there was something about him that stirred her soul and she went in search of him to thank and help him.... but she found much much more.... shocking life changing things.
This is dark, it's brutal and not a listen for the faint of heart because there's angry sex, beatings, rape, cage blood and gore, a sad history of Raze's torture, rape, being drugged in order to forget and a couple of cold blooded killings. But the main meat of this plot is the beautiful undying love story between two people whose souls had been ripped apart then gently reunited. Raze was trained to be a monster but he was so vulnerable, lost, alone and broken but when Kisa came into his life, and turned it upside down, he was tender, passionate and entirely focused on her. There's so so much more to this amazing story but I don't want to spill and spoil.
Worth a credit? What a listen, it was raw but it was compelling, it was brutal but also beautiful and it was heartbreaking yet also heartwarming. Dual POV's, Guy's narration was great and Amelie's was ok, no cliffhanger and a HEA ending. If you want a dark broody romance then very creditworthy but if you're looking for a bit more light then perhaps look elsewhere.
