I'm exhausted!! of the good kind! Phew! Zavarelli alone is somewhat of an authority on Mafia Genre, add to the mix the devious mind of Knight and we have a potboiler the size of a blockbuster!! The story starts with blood splatters, gun shots, screams and grasping hands and just keeps on gaining momentum. There's no respite or the fugitives. There's abductions, gun fights, fist fights and battle of wills. Kat shows her steely spine and mama bear qualities in full force. Lev is surprised and astounded by her bravery and mettle. He more than meets her in possessive-protective, alpha maleness, and matches her with his lion like quality of safeguarding his pride. He has firm grip on his family and won't let them go at any cost. Secrets are following them, danger nipping at their heels, Vor thirsty for their blood. They are betrayed by family and find unlikely allies in the run of their lives. Fast paced Rollercoaster ride with death defying stunts and a fight to the finish climax, ending with blood splatters, broken bones, screams and grasping hands. Powerful as a whirlwind and equally destructive in its wake, Zavarelli and Natasha have woven a tight story with enough twists and turns to give you a whiplash.

    I love it! It is the perfect ending to Ties That Bind Duet. The romance aspect and the mafia/ dark aspect blends perfectly. Lev and Kat finally gets their HEA. His picks up where the previous book left. The story picks up in roller coaster of mafia world where Lev and Kat runs away to save their son, Josh. The suspense aspect is nicely build with perfect climax. The solution of each climax is twisted around but not confusing. I do love Lev. He is the same brooding, mysterious alpha male.

    The conclusion didn’t disappoint at all. So much suspense and betrayal from so many angles. It’s a race against time, taking chances, fitting the pieces of the puzzle together and learning how to trust those you love and fight till the end for what matters most. Great story!

As I told you before, the beginning didn't win me over immediately, but then i was grabbed by the story and after the cliffy of the first book, i couldn't wait to start reading the last part!!! And this writing duet didn't disappoint me!!! The ending was explosive... Full of suspense and on constant motion!!! I freakin' loved it!!! "We're not safe. We're nowhere near safe. And that stolen flash drive that started all of this? It's nothing compared to this." Well, after the catastrophic events at the end of "Mine", Lev, Kat and Josh are on the run in order to stay alive and safe... Unfortunately, their enemies are always a step behind them and that's something that is making them anxious and impatient. Levi is determined to make everything in his power in order to keep his family safe... He can even ally with the wrong people. Nothing is forbidden in his world after all!! The ones that he wronged them are going to pay no matter what, but he has to be more careful!!! Unfortunately, the things are getting out of hands many times and our heroes are fighting constantly for their lives!!! "It's still difficult to wrap my head around the fact that I'm a father. And right now, at this moment, I want more than anything for him to understand that. Whatever happens, I will protect him. I will take care of him. Even if that means going to war with Vasily." Honestly, i can not tell you more about this book, since you know, it was a part of a duet and it isn't very right to make spoilers... But this part was exciting in a twisted way... with all these secrets and lies that were unraveling all the time and how the things were developing... "Secrets hold power over you, and in a way, when you speak them out loud and tell them to another human being, it gives you your power back." For once again, I loved Levi and Kat!!! I believe that in here, their connection grew up and took a biggest part... They are united and it shows... They are family and they are shouting them to the rest of the world with their actions... I liked how determined was Levi to be right and to be prove himself worthy to have a family!!! I liked how the things turned out after all, even with much blood, tears and destruction in between... "I was sent to kill you... But I didn't. Because the moment I saw you again, I fucking knew, even before Josh, that you were meant to be mine." Also, I loved Josh!!! He was such a cutie!!!! I also really liked Maxim and Glen... So... If you are loving a good mafia romance, then you should take a chance to this duet!!! These two authors know what are doing and it will worth your time!! ***ARC was provided in the exchange of an honest review***

Overall, I loved their connection and Lev's protective nature. What an amazing story! 5 stars! ~Ratula

I cringed and felt anxious all along as the menaces and threats arose. And I was excited with the revelations!

This was definitely a page turner. I was so happy to be back in their dark world and they made it so easy to fall right back in the mood of their world. Lev and Kat have a way of entertaining you. Their steam is impeccable. Their family dynamics are adorable. This was a solid story that entertained you and kept you on your toes. There was nothing cheesy or cliché about it, at least in my humble opinion. The Russian mob situations were handled smoothly. I endured a rocky start with this story, not liking the beginning of book one. After the time jump, I was completely invested though. Sometimes, it pays off to be patient and keep reading! I’m definitely checking on these two authors’ other work. This was a perfect ending to this duet! I recommend this read to lovers of mafia reads, intense and scorching hot romance between two characters that shouldn’t have met, overprotective daddies and sexy momma bears. ORIGINAL COMMENT: Solid story. Impeccable steam. Not cheesy. Subtle Russian mob stuff, nothing cliche. All in all, a perfect ending to a story that had a rocky start with me. REVIEW COMING SOON!

    „Never doubt that you’re mine.” What a perfect conclusion for Kat and Lev’s story! I’m in awe! It met all my expectations and I couldn't be happier with the direction the authors took. The second part of the duet is a neverending ride without a grip that takes breath away and makes your head spin. In addition to the lingering threat, which keeps you in constant suspense, the story is filled to the brim with sexiness. Perfect combo!

His begins where Mine ended and from that moment we are sucked into the whirlwind of events that are aimed to ensure the safety for Lev’s family. At every step we’re startled by unexpected twists and mindblowing revelations. But during the dangerous journey where tomorrow is uncertain and the enemy is lurking just around the corner, the source of relief is the undeniable love that connects Kat and Lev. I love them so freaking much. Lev’s dominance and possesiveness. Kat’s strenght and bravery. Despite the darkness that surrounds them, their love shines through. And their passion? You better get yourself some ice-cold water to cool off, because these two are so smoking hot that they’re able to set into flames everything around! His is an excellent ending for Ties That Bind duet. The storyline flows seamlessly, despite many surprising twists and turns. It’s action-packed and thrilling. Lev and Kat’s story is exciting and super steamy. But it shouldn't be surprising, since two mafia queens are the authors. Zavarelli and Knight slayed me with this duet and I really hope that we’d see more of their collaboration! 100% recommended!

Even if that means going to war and with Vasily.” WARNING: It’s only fair that potential readers realize the complete story is comprised of two $5/ea books, Mine being 312 pages and His being 215. I don’t like abandoning series before I finish it but this one tested my resolve....I was not only bothered that His contained 100 less pages than Mine but that all my questions were answered in the first one, I had little interest in what “Whatever happens, I will protect him. I will take care of him. Even if that means going to war and with Vasily.” WARNING: It’s only fair that potential readers realize the complete story is comprised of two $5/ea books, Mine being 312 pages and His being 215. I don’t like abandoning series before I finish it but this one tested my resolve....I was not only bothered that His contained 100 less pages than Mine but that all my questions were answered in the first one, I had little interest in what was obviously going to go down. But here I am nonetheless, finishing what I started because my mama did not raise a quitter. In some ways this book surprised me, keeping my attention much better than the first and having some interesting twists/revelations.....BUT it was predictable and unrealistic at times, with far too much graphic violence and not enough romance development. Overall Plot: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Steaminess: 🔥🔥🔥 Page Turner: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Emotional Connection: ❤️ Book Facts: Told in: Dual POV, present day with two time jumps (3 mths & 6 mths). About:The second installment (& conclusion) of Lev & Kat’s story with the Ties That Bind series. This is a dark Russian mafia romance that picks up directly from the cliffy of Mine (book 1). Potential Triggers: Very brutal & graphic torture scene (on male), graphic & gory violence (resulting in a death), extreme violence against women (not done by MC), details of miscarriage. Ends in: HEA with short-term epilogue that could have been better. The Main Players: Lev/Levka: ⭐️⭐️⭐️ Formerly part of his uncle’s illegal organization but has declared war against him in an effort to protect Kat & Josh. He is willing to do whatever it takes and kill whoever he must in this effort. I liked him a lot more than Kat and strangely found him the more level-headed parent of the two, BUT he showcases some pretty severe violence I wasn’t a fan of. Kat/Katerina: ⭐️ 1/2 She’s been uprooted from her life for the second time and is on the run with Lev & Josh, searching for a way to take down the threat and build a life with them. She’s not as boring as she was in Mine BUT she’s still one of my least favorite heroines ever. She is weak and she freaks out & cries about pretty much everything. What Worked: Attention-Pulling Ability: From the start this one I was pulled in a lot more than the last book. I do think it was more action packed throughout and even though the twists/revelations were predictable, they were entertaining. Kat’s hospital dream/vision: I honestly think her dream or vision in the hospital was my favorite part of the book. It was the only moment in either book that I felt something. It wasn’t full on emotions.... .....but it was a tinge of something. I thought it was not only really special, but very sweet. Support Characters: Is it sad that my two fav characters in the entire book are two support characters? Well Maxim & Gleb were it for me....I really loved them throughout the book. What Didn’t: Predictable: ***SPOILER*** I just wish for once the heroine’s long-lost father didn’t turn out to be a more powerful mafia boss than the enemy they are against in books like this. As soon as the name came up I had already put it all together and knew how everything would play out. It felt like the easy way out writing wise. A lot of the big moments were predictable because it’s either so overdone or it’s just common sense it’s happening in the way they set it up. Even the tragedy at the 75% mark wasn’t a shock or a surprise. Graphic Scenes: I don’t have a weak stomach, my fav movie genre is horror....the more gory the better. But there is a torture scene that is absurdly ridiculous and unnecessary. There is absolutely NO POINT for it to be included in such graphic detail aside from shock value. The same for a particular beating death as well as a tragic scene at the 75% mark. It didn’t add anything to the story or moment. No “Romance”: No surprise here, but if you are hoping for more romance than Mine you are in for a let down. The only deep connection these two made was by way of deep penetration. It’s like the authors gave up on creating a true deep meaningful connection between these two so they just used hot sex as the romance driver. I guess since they have a child together that’s enough to make their love believable. It’s so packed with other things that every deep or serious moment turns into a sex scene. To bring my point home, the ending is literally leading into more sex. Turning Lev/Kat Stupid: As careful as these two were in book one and how experienced Lev is in this “world”, I was more than a little irritated that suddenly they lost all common sense (mostly Kat) in this one. It’s as if these authors realized that in order to get to certain plot points they had to have their characters go against who they built them up to be. Unrealistic Scenarios: I can’t really get into this without spoiling more things than I want to, but let’s just say that there are a lot of moments in this book that are so far fetched and unrealistic. Hacking into a car’s GPS before the person even knew the car owner existed, Josh’s ability to sleep no matter the time of day or how much sleep he’s already had when a sex scene or convo needs to take place, first backdoor action requires very little priming but doesn’t hurt at all.... .....and those aren’t the scenarios that are really impactful to the story either. Kat: She is a little less boring in this one BUT the authors try to sell her as this strong willed fighter who refuses to just “lay down & take it”, but that’s exactly what she does EVERY TIME. She starts out strong by making a dramatic speech about her not being the type of woman who lets others control her or agree with everything they say, he gets close enough to her so that she can smell his manliness and all logic and fight goes out the window..... ......resulting in her being the very woman she claims not to be. Lev’s Sexual Manipulation: He manipulates her into sex every time she doesn’t agree at first. He ignores her protests and continues to tell her she needs it, she wants it, etc etc but he’s always careful not to actually do it until he’s turned her agreeable. I think Lev is a decent man when it comes to his family and also doing the right thing, BUT this is the area that he is kinda sleazy. The Verdict: I can admit that this one is better than Mine, but it still didn’t have what it takes to get 4 or 5 stars. I can still honestly say I wouldn’t have spent $10 for this story had I known then what I know now, it just wasn’t as special as I thought it would be. Did I hate it? Not at all, but there is no way I can ignore all the issues I had and tell others to go for it.....read reviews and trust your own judgement. “I love you, Lev,” Kat murmurs. “And our love is stronger than everything that’s happened to us. I don’t need you to be sorry. I just need you to be here. Forever.”

    Awesome conclusion to the Ties that Bind duet! This duet is so full of suspense that it leaves you anxiously reading to find out what happens next. I loved Lev and Kat from the very beginning and their story was wonderfully, and darkly, written. HIS is not a stand-alone and should only be read after reading book 1, MINE. If you enjoy a great dark suspenseful romance, I highly recommend this duet’

    ** 1 Star ⭐ ** What a big waste of my valuable time. There were so many wrong things in this book. It was so bad. No more Mafia books for me, ever.

They go through equal parts pain, violence and blood to make it through to the other side.

They go through equal parts pain, violence and blood to make it through to the other side. Revelations are dropped, new people come into their lives, and the love between Lev and Kat is tried and tested and only strengthened as each obstacle is overcome. Ashleigh Zavarelli wrote one of my favorite dark series, The Boston Underworld series a few years ago. It features a mix of Irish and Russian mobsters and has stood the test of time and remains head and tails above anything else I've ever read in the dark romance genre. Collaborating with Natasha Knight has only enhanced Ashleigh's already superb take on Mafia love. It even features a few of the same characters (Alexei and his wife from Ghost) and has now cemented itself on my short favorites shelf. Lev, Kat, Josh, Gleb, Maxim, Pasha, Dima, and the rest of their crew's story is suspenseful, emotionally complex, and gritty. If you haven't read it yet, go out and download it right freakin' now! You'll for sure fall in love with this dark tale of love and betrayal, Vory style. ARC via authors for an honest review. Teasers from A. Zavarelli's Facebook page. Review: Live Through Books Blog.

    Yes, yes, yes... It's here... It's here... This book is here... Hell yeah... Yeah, yeah, I know that I sound like I've lost all of my marbles, but do I care? Absolutely not... Lol Since the moment the words The End appeared on my kindle in the last book that I've been painfully waiting... How can you wait for the second book from a duet written by not 1 but 2 of your favorite authors?? You can't... I mean you will wait but sad and anxious... Natasha Knight and A. Zavarelli are the fantastic duo t Yes, yes, yes... It's here... It's here... This book is here... Hell yeah... Yeah, yeah, I know that I sound like I've lost all of my marbles, but do I care? Absolutely not... Lol Since the moment the words The End appeared on my kindle in the last book that I've been painfully waiting... How can you wait for the second book from a duet written by not 1 but 2 of your favorite authors?? You can't... I mean you will wait but sad and anxious... Natasha Knight and A. Zavarelli are the fantastic duo that I'm talking about... Guys just get ready because their writing is hard, hot, wild, and freaking dangerous. His is their latest release and it's the second book from the Ties That Blind duet and it continues to explore the lives of Kat and Lev. Kat and Lev let themselves get lost in each other. She knows that he's not a saint but she hadn't realized that the devil was near them. When she sees a brutal murder she ran away but after 4 years... Stunned doesn't even cover the way I was feeling when this book ended. I was happy and sad at the same time. Happy because it was an amazing adventure, but sad because it's over... Why? I need more... Superb plot, very well written, super engaging, super dark and super intense. And let's not forget to hot stuff in there too. Oh boy... Let's talk about chemistry... Darkness surrounded the majority of the story but then we were presented with the best rainbow. Darkness, crime, punishment, torture are very present in this book as well as love, loyalty, friendship, and complicity. Some of the chapters put me into tears but then some scenes came up to out a smile on my face again. I'm in love with this duet and everyone should read it. Natasha Knight and A. Zavarelli created the best duet that you can't miss. It has all the things that can turn a book into something masterpiece.  I voluntarily read an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
