I voluntarily read an ARC of this book in exchange for honest review.
Lev and Katerina are back in this second part of the “Ties that bind” duet. Book started exactly from the book 1 cliffhanger. After book 1 climax instance, now Kat and Lev are on run from Vasily and Russian Mafia. Now it’s time for them to survive the storm. While on the run, they start to understand and trust each other gradually. Lev’s connection with Josh (their son) also increases gently.
This book delves more into Lev and Kat’s past as they start to understand the connection between their families to Mafia. Lev needs to make the right moves and be one step ahead of his enemies. With secrets being buried and dangers keep piling up against Kat and Lev, they try to navigate their way and be on the other end unharmed.
Lev’s character evolves into a protector and trustworthy man. He shows again and again that his loyalty lies with his family over everything else. Kat’s character had slight lag than I wanted her to have. She doesn’t truly question Lev. She seems to go along with it. she just isn’t pushing much against Lev’s demands. I did have moments where this bothered me but it bothered me more in Book1 than this.
Book 2 was totally action packed, fast paced book. It was full of action, suspense and twists. We meet two new secondary characters in this -Gleb and Maxim. They totally match their and personality, however I had different imagination for Gleb (position he holds), but we can accept as it is. Josh is settling and soothing boy. Can’t imagine a 4-year-old like that😊. Alexis is good, not sure, if he has his own story, but he was totally loveable and loyal cousin.
Over all, this conclusion doesn’t disappoint. Perfect ending, nonstop action, intriguing story, full of suspense, romance and twists. Pick up and enjoy this duet.
