The flowers. The dress. Her husband. But nothing could have prepared her for
saying “I do” to Dmitri Romanov-cold, domineering, and always one
step ahead of everyone else in the ever-shifting power plays of New York City.
She agreed to his bargain to secure peace for her family, and she may want the
bastard more than she’d ever admit, but she’ll be damned if she’ll make this
marriage easy for him.
desire smolders between them, a dangerous addiction neither can resist. But his
enemies are already on the move, and he needs every ounce of his legendary
focus and control to keep them alive. Keira could just be his secret weapon-if
she doesn’t bring him to his knees first.
I have been waiting for Dmitri’s story and especially since it involved Keira the broken younger sister of the O’Malley family. Keira’s dramatic history of wildness, drugs and alcohol made her a character that I did not relate to nor did she appear to have anything in her character that drew me to her but Dmitri always held my attention. With Dmitri I always felt he was more that what we saw and in this book the reader will be instantly drawn to him. They will see behind the monster’s mask to the man that lies beneath and the reader will willingly draw a different conclusion than the obvious one. He is fully faceted, larger than life and the most important part to his character is what he does for Keira.Keira’s character changed as the book progressed and the reader will be drawn into her character in an unexpected way. They start to see her past in a way that will allow them to open up their heart and mind to her as she matures under Dmitri’s influence.
This book deals with drug addiction, alcoholism, broken families, grief and finding oneself. Hats off to Author Katee Robert for writing a seriously hot dramatic series that was impactful at addressing difficult subjects in a heartfelt manner.
I give the 5 STARS for being so wonderful……..

He’d deal with that, just like he’d deal with the rest of Keira’s issues. In time.
Right that moment, time was the one thing they didn’t have. Keira’s oldest brother would be returning to Boston within hours, and Dmitri fully intended to marry her before Aiden
realized she was gone. It was significantly more difficult to oust a wife than it was a fiancée. He had Keira now. He wasn’t going to let anyone take her.
She kicked her feet out, propping her chunky black boots on the seat. The long line of her bare legs drew his gaze up to her tiny sleep shorts. They were barely more than underwear, hugging her hips and ass. Her shirt wasn’t much better, for all that it was long-sleeved. It revealed a slice of pale stomach and was fitted enough that he had absolutely no doubts about the fact that Keira wore no bra. Her small breasts pressed against the fabric, and she shivered beneath the weight of his gaze.
“Our current situation is no reason to throw propriety out the window.” He sounded stuffy, and he hated it, but with her sitting so close, wearing clothing she’d just been sleeping in… Dmitri dragged in a breath. “Keep your shoes on the floor.”
“Or what?” She turned to face him. The move pulled her shirt even tighter against her chest, revealing the faintest outline of her nipples. Keira saw where his gaze went, and gave a bitter smile. “All the games, all the bullshit, and that hasn’t changed.” She leaned forward and hooked his collar with her finger, drawing him closer despite himself. “Tell me something, Romanov.”
Or she would be in a few short hours.
He bracketed her thigh with a hand, keeping her in place, but didn’t touch her anywhere else. There was no masking his reaction to her, not in their position. Dmitri didn’t bother
trying. “Calling me Frankenstein is more than a bit dramatic.”
She looked up at him, her eyes holding a question he didn’t have a satisfying answer to. “I think it’s time to stop being in denial, don’t you?”
He recognized the direction she was headed. “You know I want you. I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t.”
It didn’t matter what the truth was, full or otherwise. What mattered was ensuring Keira toed the line. He sat back, trying to ignore the throbbing of his cock, and studied her. “You knew what this was when you climbed out your window and stepped between me and your brother.”
She finally met his gaze, her hazel eyes fiery in their defiance. “Yes, I did.”

by Katee Robert
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert delivers the next book in her sizzling O’Malleys family series, hailed as “The Godfather meets Romeo & Juliet.” FORBIDDEN PROMISES features Sloan O’Malley and her mysterious new next-door neighbor, Jude MacNamara.
Some lines should never be crossed . . . not even for love.
Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind-her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.
Jude MacNamara has no room for innocence in his life. Only revenge. Still, he’s never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan–who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation–has forbidden written all over her. Only after it’s way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back. To protect her, Jude is willing risk everything . . . and to hell with the consequences.
I am cheering Sloan’s move of leaving her mob family behind. This mousey woman finally allows her backbone to come out in this book #4 of the O’Malley series showing the reader a woman who finally comes into her own. The author slowly unravels Sloan’s hard won independence and it is done with great finesse keeping the reader interested in how this book will end. The reader will continually cheer each time she overcomes another obstacle.
For all those readers, out there who like alpha men, meet Jude MacNamara. Just wow! That being said I was quite mesmerized with the thought of how the author could turn this stone killer into a man worthy of Sloan or any women for that fact. Bravo…..job well done. I came to love Jude and become his staunchest fan.
Sloan’s family members are very prominent in this book and her sister Keira is one out of control girl. When her story comes, it will be explosive because with all of her problems I can’t help thinking it will get real messy before it’s done. Her older brother seems to pull on my heart strings. I keep justifying what he does no matter how bad and the next book will be his story and I am excited for it to come out.
As in the previous book to this series the reader will be amazed at how the author through a series of wicked twists and turns come to a resolution that is very satisfying. For this reason, I give it 4-1/2 STARS.

New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee.
Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it ‘a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
