The Gift: Bratva Vows One by S.R. Jones

A Bookworm Review by Ana

The Gift

Mafia Dark Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Not everything is what it looks like…

Have a look at the blurb:

This is part one of a dark romance duet. The story will be fully resolved in part two.

Keep your friends close, and your enemies in your bed….

The innocent waitress
nobody would miss,
nobody would care about.
Given to him;
A cold-blooded, unforgiving hitman.
With sexy eyes and an irresistible body.
But he doesn’t know who I am,
Or what secrets I hide.

A gift—mine!
To own, to keep.
To do with as I please.
But she’s so much more.
More than I ever imagined.
And I vow to get to the bottom of this…
This beautiful, mysterious, and broken gift.
Because now she belongs to me.

Please note this is a dark romantic suspense and therefore all the trigger warnings apply!

Let me just say that I was super curious to start this new book. I had loved the first one and had so many questions that I needed to read it fast.
SR Jones created this amazing series and I really love a good Mafia book…
Just by reading one book and I knew I would be addicted. Her writing is that appealing and intense.
The Gift it’s her latest release and it’s the first book from the Bratva Vows Series. But I need to tell you something, you should read The Trap first. This book is the prequel to this series and will explain everything to you. Trust me.
This new book continues to tell Andrius and Victoria’s story… Oh boy… And what a story this is…
As you know Victoria was gifted to Andrius by a Mob Boss. She had a secret agenda but everything went down the drain and now she’s being held captive.
Andrius got the gift he wasn’t expecting but being a Hitman he’s trained to not show any emotions but…
OMG… OMG… What the hell is that? I’m stunned.
Perfect plot, super engaging, intense and surrounded by a thick cloud of darkness. Dayum… How can I talk about it without spoiling? It’s not an easy task.
Like I knew this would be amazing, just by reading the prequel, I wasn’t expecting this. I mean, it was a dark reading but I wasn’t expecting the turn of events.
One minute I was reading one thing, thinking in one way and then bamm, all changed in a flick of a page.
Love, loss, loyalty, betrayal, is all included in this book and I can’t wait for more.
And hot stuff alert. Hot, kinky, desirable stuff alert…
Yes guys more, because this book ended in a way that shook me to my core.
When SR? When will we have the next book? Please don’t take long because I need answers.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

About the Author:

Hi Guys. I’m a UK based author who loves to read and write all things romance.

As Skye Jones I write steamy paranormal romance.

As S.R. Jones I write darker, contemporary romance and romantic suspense.

One thing my books have in common are tortured alpha heroes that are oh-so-redeemable!

I live in Yorkshire, and get lots of inspiration from the windswept moors, the old stone buildings and the Celtic myths of this fair isle.

My dogs are my favorite people, although I tell my husband I’m quite fond of him too 😉

I love chocolate and Starbuck’s Mochas and keep meaning to give them up for a life of yoga and fresh juices, but it never happens!
