OWNED BY THE BRATVA KING by Jagger Cole
Release Date: July 8th
Genre/Trope: Captive Romance/ Organized Crime
She’s been mine since the second I saw her.
It would be easy to say I have no business even looking at a girl like River Finn. She’s too young. Too innocent. Too much my daughter’s best friend.
That is, until the gorgeous forbidden fruit becomes my business. A rival bratva kingpin wants her. I want his empire. Kidnapping her as leverage should be an easy, simple business arrangement.
Except there’s nothing easy or simply about this. Not when she captures my piercing gaze. Not when she leaves me hungry and wanting. Not when her sassy mouth and dangerous curves make me weak.
But my world is strength and brutality. There’s no place in it for softness like River. There’s no room for the long-forgotten, smoldering feelings she ignites in me.
Touching her could destroy my empire. Keeping her could start a war. And yet, possession is nine-tenths of the law.
River has no business being in my world. But now, I’m making it my business to make sure she never leaves.
She’s mine—finders, keepers.

Wow…what a smoothly written, fast paced whirlwind of a story! Only negative thing I have to say is it went too fast. I wish it had been a little longer. River is one of the world’s top models and has been since she is 15 years old. She is mostly a private person and lies low. Her best friend Belle has recently reconnected with her biological father Yuri who River met at a dinner party. She also discovered that Belle’s father is somehow related to the Russian mafia but doesn’t know anything more.
Yuri is not only in the mafia but IS the mafia. He is beyond wealthy, ruthless and super hot. When one of his competitors starts to get out of hand, Yuri knows he has to do something to put him in his place. He heard that this guy has made it his mission to get one of the world’s top models into his bed. Whether she likes it or not. He is obsessed with her and will stop at nothing to get her. Yuri knows that he has to get to her first so he can use her as leverage over his old enemy.
When River arrives for a photoshoot on a yacht, chaos breaks out. She is taken and when the bag is taken off her head, she is relieved to see her best friend’s father. Yuri is beyond shocked to see his daughter’s best friend. He had no clue the model that he was kidnapping right out of his enemy’s hands as leverage was beautiful River. The dinner he had met her at previously had him quite tempted by her beauty and now here she was.
Needless to say things turn quickly. There are some hot sexy scenes, fighting, angst and all that comes along in a Bratva scenario. It was fast paced and a page turner. It was over too quickly! Definitely a must read!
