She was a bad b*tch—Her name sparked fear in those that had the nerve to run from her. Mila Petrovna was a soldier in the Tokhan Bratva, the most powerful crime family in New York City, run by her brother. She collected debts on behalf of her brother and the Bratva. It was Mila who ensured that the Bratva had deadly soldiers to fight. But who would be there to ensure that she was protected? 

He’d had his eyes on her for a while. He knew that he shouldn’t want her but he was drawn to her. She was the sister of his rival and that should have meant that she would be off limits. Kole Bozovic was a man who knew what he wanted and went after it. After a brief meeting, he made the decision—she would be his. 

The two were thrown together in the middle of a war and lines would be drawn. He’d laid a claim on her and no one would take what was his, even if they tried. War made one realize that some things were best left in the past. If they were to survive, they would have to work together.

This is the first book by this author that I’ve had the pleasure to read.

Mila is a tough as nails soldier who selects and trains other soldiers in the Tokhan Bratva, she also collects debts for her brother who is in charge of New York and her father is the head in Russia, the Grand Pakhan. Kole Bozovic is their rival, running the Belotov Gang. He sees her and knows it is Mila he wants for himself.

Unexpected Allies is a fast-paced, easy to read book that has lots of drama and action. It has its fair share of passion and romance too, the two lead characters really burn up the sheets, shower, get the idea! 😂

Some excellent descriptions of both the characters and scenes make it easy to visualise the story. Although the characters are from the Mafia they are easy to like and understand. Both lead characters are a great match in temperament, desires and attitude.

I certainly hope this book is only the first in a series!
