Vlad knows the Tacone’s owe him and he wants to take something of theirs, and when he sees them all together at the same time and the lovely Alessia, he knows he’s going to get the one they all care about. Alessia can’t believe she’s terrified and turned on at the same time by the Russian, she knows she’s screwed. She knows her brothers will kill him, but he lets her know he’s not giving her back and they will be hard to find in Russia and she’s going to marry him. She knows one thing though he’s not the tyrant he wants her to believe he is. Vlad decides to research all he can about her illness for some reason he is protective of her, he doesn’t trust women, but she’s beautiful and at his mercy. The more he learns about Alessia the more he wonders if she’s not the spoiled princess he thought she was. When he watches her fall apart with his touch, he knows he wants more, not until she’s his wife, and he wants her trust so he can dominate her, but can he make her want to stay but there is so much against them and their battle against everything only gets worse.
The whole bad boy/mafia guy is not an automatic read for me so I'm always a bit wary of reading books that have this as a main character. However, I have read the other Vegas Underground books by this author & have liked them all so I continue to take a chance. Surprisingly, I loved this book from start to finish! The characters were interesting, the inclusion of a major health condition made it an uncommon read & while Vlad was Bratva, he was surprisingly sweet & gentle. Going out on a limb & suggesting it's completely unrealistic, but well worth a read.
I’ve loved all the books in the Vegas Underground series and was so eager to get into His Queen of Clubs (Alessia’s story). I really wanted to love this book, but the entire read I just kept thinking “there’s no way, she’s got Stockholm Syndrome” I know the previous books have all had pieces of ownership and being held captive by the Tacone brothers, but I just felt this one took it to the next level. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll continue to read future books in this series and Rose’s books and I’ve given this book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ for the originality of the story, the writing and the HEA, I loved Alessia’s relationship with Mika, I just think the international kidnapping was a bit too much for me.
The Tacones takeout a section of the Bratva that was Vlads family,his retribution is to kidnap their only sister from under their noses and hold her for ransom The plan starts to unravel as he learns of her serious health problems and their implications Together they undertake an amazing journey with so many twists and turns some not typical or predictable It was great. Loved it
Renee’s Mafia stories get better and better. I love the characters in this story, and how Alessia changes Vlad from a ruthless Russian bratva to a loving husband and father. I can’t wait to read the next one!
