Release Blitz and Review! Savage Mafia Prince – Annika Martin
Where is Kiro?He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.
I’m supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.
Here’s the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.
I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?
*A Standalone HEA*
Oh my goodness!! This was the best one yet! I didn’t think I would love Kiro the most out of the Dragusha Brothers…but I definitely do. I guess Ann’s not the only one who’s a sucker for the caveman act, huh? But I have a feeling I’m not the only one who thinks that. There were times of irritation for me towards Kiro, I got all offended on Ann’s behalf. You know, when they get a little too caveman on you? But, I truly enjoyed these characters and bringing the story of the brothers around full circle.
Ann has some serious issues from the beginning, due to her past experiences in her journalism career, but she is trudging along and trying to find the next story to help build herself up to the top. When she starts to talk to Kiro in the hospital, you can see the trauma start to slowly slip away from her. He’s helping to heal her without even meaning to. At first, Kiro appears to be your basic broody, caveman with a dark past. Once we delve into his chapters where he meets Ann and once he starts talking to Ann, you see the real issues he has. From a young age he has always thought something was wrong with him and he wasn’t a proper kid, even believing the police would arrest him at eight years old. He is so unfamiliar with the most basic human emotions and needs; love, trust, family…at least with other humans. As we see Ann trying to push through to him and let him know there was never anything wrong with him, their connection strengthens and the he morphs before you eyes, hell even Ann changes over the time they have together. They make each other better versions of themselves.
I don’t want to tell you everything that happens in this one, it’s important and helps to make you feel like the Dragusha Brothers are going to actually make it, that they now have a chance to make all their lives right after the incredible traumas they’ve all suffered. A story of hope, if you will. I loved it and recommend this book , no this series to anyone, so good on so many levels!
