The Russian Thug by Rie Warren Blog Tour

I am her captor.
Her keeper.
And I don’t have a single intention of protecting her.

This mouthy tomboy is the only daughter of the O’Sullivan mafia, and they’ve been screwing us over for months. All of that changes today. I don’t like surprises but I do enjoy a challenge and, by the time I’m done with the Irish brat, the uneasy truce between our Bratva and their family will be no more than bloodstains on the streets of Boston.

I’m going to abduct her. I’m going to toy with her. I’ll control her and teach her family a lesson they’ll never forget. I can’t wait.

The Russian Thug is book 1 in the Krasnov Brothers series. No cliffhangers. No cheating. Includes sizzling hot scenes. Can be read as a standalone!

Avid Reader☆☆☆☆☆
M/F Mafia romance
Triggers: Mafia romances tend to have darker issues, just be aware that there are some dark themes within this story.

Kirill Krasnov is an enforcer for the Russian Bratva. He knows what is expected of him and does it without feeling. After making a deal with the O'Sullivan Irish clan nearby, when it's discovered that the O'Sullivans have been shorting the Russians, Kirill knows he has to get to the bottom of the issue and fast. Nobody takes advantage of his Bratva. But when he confronts the O'Sullivan delivery person, it's not who he expects.

Joanna O'Sullivan (Jo) knows that she isn't living the typical life. More than most, Jo knows what can lie underneath the belly of the beast. When she is delivering their agreed amount of alcohol to the Russian Bratva, unbeknownst to her, her family has been shorting them. When she's kidnapped and held so that the O'Sullivan clan will start rectifying the issue, Jo knows that she might just be safer with the Bratva than at home.

Jo's brothers and Kirill have to figure out a way to work together to come up with a solution. Kirill and Jo have chemistry that jumps off the page at you. You can feel the pull they have and see the changes they go through in order to figure out what they are going to do about their chemistry. When the unthinkable happens, Kirill will have to decide if Jo is worth the fight.

I cannot wait to read more of this series. This one was amazing and kept you on your toes.

The Russian Thug: Abducted by the Bratva is the first book in the Krasnov Brothers series.

Kirill Krasnov is the enforcer of the Russian Bratva and he takes his job quite seriously. When it's suspected that the O'Sullivans of the Irish Mafia are delivering watered down alcohol to their club, he takes matters into his own hands. He meets the delivery driver on the dock and demands to know what is going on. Finding out that the delivery trucker isn't who he expects, he comes up with a plan to make the Irish pay.

Joanna O'Sullivan is the only daughter and treated like a slave by her father. Her brothers tried to protect her the best they could but being on the Irish compound was the most dangerous place she could be, including being abducted by the Bratva.

"When you're in trouble, I will always come for you, malyshka."

You could feel the chemistry between Kirill and Jo burning through the pages. He wasn't the type to fall for one woman but something about the Irish tomboy called to him in ways he couldn't understand. I loved the suspense and darkness. The side characters where just as entertaining and had me invested in them. I can't wait to get more of these brothers.

Kirill and his brothers were orphaned when they were young. When they tried to pull one over on Yury, part of the Russian mafia, Yury saw something in them that he could mold and grow them into his very own and they would be part of his crew. Now years later, Kirill is the enforcer and he takes his job seriously. When he finds that the Irish mob has been watering down the alcohol, he meets the delivery driver for a little talk. He is surprised to find that Joe is really Joanna. The daughter of the head of the Irish mob. He decided to hold her to get the O'Sullivans to take notice.

Jo/Joanna takes her delivery driving job seriously. It is the only freedom she has to get away from her father and his goons. When she goes to the Bratva, she can't believe that Kirill has found out that she is really a woman. And that he has taken her captive. But as long as the mafia doesn't treat her the way that her father does, she is better off with the Russian thug.

Will Kirill learn the real reason she has been driving the delivery truck? And why no one has come after her? Will Joanna learn to trust Kirill and his brothers? Can these two live together without acting on the sizzling chemistry between them?

I really enjoyed this story and the chemistry between Jo and Kirill. And I look forward to more in this series from the brothers. I have read others from this author and can't wait to read more from her.

Badass, sassafras Rie Warren is an OG Amazon All Star author of Bad Boy books and MC romance. She delivers five-star sex, suspense, and the best banter around. Her stories are one hundred percent original, do not contain fluffy plots or virgin brides, and wring every last emotion from readers to leave them with a satisfied smile. Rie’s tough alpha males are never brought to heel, but are instead healed by the feisty femme fatale of their perfect match.

She grew up in Maine, went to college in Iowa (Iowa, what?), lived in Scotland, and married in Englishman. In true roundabout fashion, they came back to the States, settled in South Carolina’s lowcountry, putting down southern roots and pursuing their arty endeavors. Tale spinner and character diviner, Rie is a lover of sleep, wine, and rude memes often involving either Disney characters or Winnie the Pooh. She is raising two teen daughters along with an entire brain full of unruly characters.

Rough-talking alpha men? Rie has that on tap.
Stubborn sassy heroines? You bet.
Smoldering sex scenes that’ll set your Kindle on fire? Check, check, check.
