The Soldier: Bratva Blood Prequel by SR Jones

A Bookworm Review by Ana

The Soldier

Mafia Dark Romance

I give this book 5 stars!

Where it all begun…

Have a look at the blurb:

In love, as in war, there can be only one victor.

I wasn’t born a monster—they made me one.
I wasn’t born a king—I claimed the right to be one.
I was born a soldier—a fighter, a warrior.
Waging war is in my very soul, bone deep and blood-soaked.

There’s a new conflict on the horizon, time for me to defend my Bratva crown.
Time for me to reap cruel vengeance on those who wronged me.
Caught up in this is an innocent, a woman who was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
They say every king needs a queen, and I’m about to claim mine; whether she likes it or not.

This is the prequel novella to the Bratva Blood duet – please be aware this is a dark romantic suspense and therefore trigger warnings do apply.



And Mafia… Mafia… Mafia… Do I need to say it again?
Mafia just to be sure.
Everyone knows that I love Mafia books and this lady knows how to write them.
She has one powerful writing, surrounded by darkness and so much more.
That lady is the one and only SR Jones.
Have you had the chance to read any book written by her?
If you did, you know what I’m talking about. But if you didn’t… Oh boy… You don’t know what you’re missing.
The Soldier is her latest release and it’s the prequel to the Bratva Blood series.
This new book explores the lives of Konstantin and Cassie.
Konstantin didn’t have a normal childhood, he was forced to grow up too soon to help his mother. When he was older he was sent to join the military. War changed him. On the outside he’s a normal business man but on the inside he’s a monster, a killer.
When his world is threatened…
Cassie had a horrible childhood. After her father left her mom got severe depression and she was taken to foster care. Being there, she was pushed from house to house until her grandparents took over.
She had so many dreams after finishing college but problem after problem tear does dreams apart.
Now she works as a barista.
To fall in love isn’t in the cards for her. She has a steady relationship and that’s it.
Well, untill…
Jeez… What a prequel… What a beginning…
Perfect in every way, from the prologue till the end.
Awesome plot, very well written, super raw and intense.
Each chapter was even more intense than the latest.
It was one super bumpy roller coaster…
The brook gives us crime, punishment, betrayal as well as love, loyalty and so much more.
It was a short story but it was the perfect beginning for what’s about to come our way.
Oh SR… You rock woman. Just saying.
Just don’t take too long with the next one.
You have a lot of explanations to give… …

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!
