From the Inside Flap
Never, a new voice answers. A dark voice. The one that wants to consume all that Kayla is. Claim her and keep her forever. Suck everything out of her until she's dry.
What can I say? It feels right to be so wrong.

Pavel had a brutal childhood that was really no childhood at all. He’s a man who has no idea how to love somebody, although he understands loyalty and the code of the bratva, in which he’s a soldier. He knows that he likes to be in charge in his physical encounters with women, and likes to inflict controlled pain along with pleasure, but he’s not very experienced as a Dominant. Kayla had a normal childhood with loving parents. She’s living in Los Angeles and working random jobs to make ends meet while pursuing her dreams of being an actress. She herself can’t understand why she enjoys being a service submissive, but it fulfills her so deeply that she can’t deny it. In addition to navigating their constantly developing connection, Pavel and Kayla are each also navigating other complications and connections within their lives. Plus, he lives in Chicago and she lives in California. Calling it complicated would be an understatement.
Both of the main characters grow and develop by the end of the book, particularly Pavel. As a reader, I would’ve liked to experience more of the midweek interactions by phone between Kayla and Pavel, but I realized there could’ve been word count issues and so forth that impacted that. Or, it’s just the way the author wanted us experience the story. Regardless, I really liked the ending. If you’ve read the other books so far in this series, the glimpses you get of those other characters within this book are great. I’m already looking forward to the next one.
Ugh, I hate when I am confused on how I feel about a book after finishing it. It's especially confusing when this is an author that I absolutely adore, and I was so excited that Pavel and Kayla were going to get a full length story. If you've been following along with the Chicago Bratva series, then you'll know that Kayla and Pavel actually met in the Blacklight: Roulette anthology for Valentine's Day. They sizzled the pages, but it wasn't enough. Their voices were insistent that their story wasn't over as they tried to navigate a long distance relationship.
There's a lot of things that I liked or loved, but there's also some things that I thought were missed opportunities. I think it would be easier to just list a few of them. It's still an amazing story, but I am just confused. I liked it, and I have reread some of my favorite parts, but I think it could have been better.
-Most of the story takes place on the weekend meetings between Pavel and Kayla. Although you get to see how much the weekends mean to them, I would have liked to have seen more of their interactions with everyone else during the week. I thought it would have made a better story to show how much they are changing to the people who know them best.
-I would have liked to see mini text and phone call sessions during the week parts. I just felt that it was weekend meeting after weekend meeting for awhile. Absence makes the heart grow founder, and it would have really cemented that point.
-Both of them are going to have to grow and adapt if they want the relationship to work. They just have too many challenges between them, i.e. the distance, the nature of their relationship, etc. However, I really thought that Pavel had an instant change. I would have liked to have seen more of a gradual change from grumpy Bratva Soldier to In Love Dom.
I love their story. So much depth to these characters (especially Pavel). Watching Pavel struggle with his desires was amazing nd showed a side that was well hidden.
This will be a book I read over and over for sure!

Yes, she's naive and he's a dreadful communicator but really my only issue with this book was how quickly it ended - it felt quite abrupt.
Their story is Black Light was awesome, but the full book is worth the investment if you like sex, drama, and emotion in your 5* reads.
