    His To Defend: Sergei and Evette

    I absolutely loved this book in the new NOLA Knights series!!!! We first meet Sergei in Knox's book and I have to admit I was intrigued by him and when I learned he was getting his own story...I was super excited! This story was so good and definitely worth the wait. Evette is a single mom trying to keep her head above water. When she loses her job she is desperate to find one asap especially since she needs the money to get her son into an elite school. The only person she can turn to is Sergei. He is as dangerous as they come, a mob boss who runs his business dealings with an iron fist. There is something about Evette and her son that makes him want to be softer, gentler, more caring and only for them alone do they get that side of him. He sees this opportunity to give Evette a job a means to keep her close to him while providing what she needs. What he didn't bargain for was losing his heart to her in the process. I loved this story so much...I am a sucker for a mafia romance and this story delivers and then some. I highly recommend this book to all and I can't wait for more in this series. Another fantastic story, well done!!!!

    My kind of mafia book!

    This was 100% my kind of mafia book. I like that dark, anti-hero who still behaves honorably and protects what is his at all costs. To me, that's the perfect bad boy persona, that right amount of balance between dark and light. The minute Sergei was introduced in the Haven Brotherhood series I knew I wanted his story. He's one of those characters that captures you from the start and holds you captive. Despite his hard exterior, he never once treated Evette badly. Nothing will win me over faster than that. As heroines go, Evette was a great mix of sweet and strong. She's a single mom who has lost a lot in her life and yet she never let that dim her light. She's outgoing, friendly, well loved and has a backbone. She was the perfect match to Sergei. I really like that Sergei was honest with her about what kind of man he was and what he has done. I also really like that Evette took that seriously. She didn't just blindly follow. She thought things through and trusted her instincts. This couple was such a pleasure to read about. We got quality time of them together and they never behaved immaturely or rashly. No unnecessary drama here. I truly can't wait to see what this author brings us next in the series.

    5 Star Defend

    Russian vor Sergei Petrovyh’s knows he should keep his hands off someone as beloved by the locals as Evie, but there’s something about that calls to him. Evie has certainly noticed the powerful Russian mafia boss – he’s as hot as his reputation is dangerous, but right now she needs money to get her son out of trouble and her other needs will have to wait. She can’t help falling deeper in love with each passing day, but when a rival brings violence to her doorstep, Evie must come to grips with loving a man who will do anything to defend her. The first ‘NOLA Knight’ story is as suspenseful as it is romantic, engaging and entices readers to hold their kindle or book close, so that they don’t miss one word. The characters are strong and believable with a hero that is bad to the bone tough but has a heart that is always in the right place while the heroine is a determined and courageous single mom. The chemistry between the two has sparks flying and singes the pages while the romance is quite sweet with quite a bit of emotional turmoil as the couple has to make decisions regarding what’s right for each of them when it comes to Sergei’s status. The plot is steady to fast paced and full of suspense and excitement that keeps readers glued to the pages as the couple face “real” life decisions and choices, betrayals and “no way” twists. Readers can’t help but become caught up in this story as it is the hero is a perfect balance between bad boy and a white knight while the heroine is brave enough to step into his world and accept his life.

    Mafia Knight

    I knew as soon as we met Sergei Petrovyh In Tempted and Taken that I wanted his story. I knew this sexy protective Russian was going to be my favorite.When I found out it was based in New Orleans with all its atmosphere and flavor just made it even better. I’m gonna be honest most Mafia Romance is just not my cup of tea. There are a few good ones out there but most just no thank you! This is one of the best books I’ve read this year and I read a lot. I just love a Alpha Take charge hero and nobody does that better than Rhenna Morgan. Evie is a strong woman taking care of her son. Sergei is a temptation she doesn’t need. Some temptations are just to hard to resist.The twist at the end was just crazy. If you haven’t read The Men of Haven books and now this spin off what are you waiting for. Your definitely missing out.

    Bratva/Mafia trope without the heavy feel..perfect

    I love the way this author writes heroes! The icing on her already delicious cake is a heroine that is just as wonderful. Sergei and Evette were awesome individually and together. Add a seven year old boy, and a Cinderella type feel to the story and this book was a winner! Evette dealt with life’s harsher realities by losing herself in wild actions which resulted in an unplanned pregnancy. Since then, she’s buckled down and even if she’s not living her dreams, she’s determined to give her son stability in every area of his life. That determination is what motivates her to approach Sergei Petrovyh, the boss of the local bratva and a man that catches her eye each time he’s in her vicinity. Sergei is expecting her to request a loan so when she asks if he can direct her to a job, he’s thrown off course. For just a moment. Because within the next heartbeat he’s crossing every line he mentally drew when it comes to the neighborhood’s darling. ”Much as he’d honor and savor the touch of someone so light and good, the darkness in him was too thick. Weighted with too many bodies and tainted with too much blood to be worthy of such a gift.” He’s been watching her for a while and has battled his own desires but when she takes a deliberate step into his life he’s going to run with it. He intends to keep his distance, but when her sun shines even brighter in his darkness, he’s staking his claim. Evette was a wonderful heroine with her fierce independence, her loyalty, her parenting habits and her ability to evolve when it came to Sergei’s darkness. She lands in a bit of drama that pertains to Sergei’s business but instead of trying to keep it a secret, she does the adult thing and communicates with him. There was never a too stupid moment although it could have easily gone that way. I loved that that wasn’t her way of dealing with things. She was always up front and honest, especially with herself. As for Sergei, he won me from his very first appearance in the book. The fact that his every thought and action was affected by Evette and Emerson’s presence in his life made me love him all the more. His tender regard, insight into what each was feeling, and total “mine” attitude when it came to both of them skyrocketed him to perfect book boyfriend status. I loved each time we had his point of view because it cemented what his actions and comments highlighted…Evette and her son were his everything. And he shows it non-stop. Swoon. He was freaking amazing! ”If we continue on as we were, people might misinterpret your place. Today, we are making it clear to everyone and anyone who might be interested exactly what that place is.” “Well, would you mind telling me? Because things are a little hazy from where I’m standing.” His demeanor shifted in a second, the amusement and patience he’d shown swept away in the space of one gasp as he cupped the back of her head and tugged her flush against him. “Mine.” This has a great pace to it, slow on action despite the bratva life, heavy on possible danger, sizzling in the chemistry department, and perfection when it came to the epilogue. The secondary characters were just as wonderful as the hero and heroine and they added so much richness to the story without ever stealing the show. I cannot wait to get more in this series! Highly recommending this one to anyone who enjoys bratva/mafia tropes without the dark, heavy feel that can sometimes overshadow the romance contained within.
