    Re-read July 2019. A re-read that made me cry? Yeah, that doesn't happen very often. *-*-* An amazing albeit it gut wrenching novella and introduction into Demyan and Ana's lives. Another fantastic book by Bethany-Kris that had the tears flowing and my guts in knots. This is not a standalone and should be read before Shattered. Re-read July 2019. A re-read that made me cry?

    I LOVED this novella. It was packed with so much drama and emotions and it really tore me up!! The children of Vine and Anton, Demyan and Ana, are adults navigating life and being part of the Bratva. I loved that Vine and Anton are still a big part of their life and are there for them through tragedy and heartbreak. A quick read and definitely an awesome one as well!!

    This is the forth book in this series but the first of the next generation with Demyan and Ana being the main characters and for me it's the best so far. The synopsis is good and since I don't want to inadvertently give anything away I'm going to avoid giving a summary of any kind, this book was so much more than I expected, it's emotional and raw at times and went where I didn't expect.

I didn't read any reviews or the blurb first (which is why it was such a surprise) since I was already committed to this series, this is by far the shortest book yet at only 128 pages and if I'm being honest I expected it to just give us an insight into Demyan and Ana's lives, what they're doing, where they're heading that kind of thing building up to the next book I didn't expect and wasn't prepared for the book we got. #### I'm adding this to the bottom of my reviews for this series. I checked the authors page which isn't something I generally do but I wanted to know if we were getting any more Russian Guns books. On the site there's 9 mini free reads/deleted scene books from this series and one in particular 'White Sand Black Beauty' is just beautiful it takes us to the second time Anton and Viviana meet, he's eighteen and rebelling against everything and then he sees her.....

Trust me you're going to need them! Five star standing ovation read! I bawled like a baby one minute and was pissed the next. Oooh my god too many emotions are surging through me at the moment, so enough of my blubbering and onto the review. Three mafia families comes together in what should have been a joyous occasion and all three will suffer heartache and loss. Blood will be spilled, war is inevitable and lives hangs in the balance. Demyan & Ana (The Russian Guns #4)“Your nephew was a fucking sociopath,” Anton growled from somewhere behind Demyan. “You knew what he was, hid his transgressions, paid off his victims, and sent him away to hurt someone else. Monsters comes in all shapes and forms yet appearances can be deceiving. The guy next door for instance could be on the deans list and appear just like any one of the Joes. So its shocking to see his mug plastered on television being accused of murdering hundreds. But what do you do when one is unleashed and he's the byproduct of another powerful mafia family? Pretend his actions didn't happen, quietly sweep the forbidden secret under a rug, met out your own brand of justice and pray war doesn't come to your doorstep! These are questions Anton, Viviana and Ivan and Eva will be asking themselves.

    So i've finally read it. It was a good book altough i can say that demyan and ana are different from what i've expected. i feel so sorry for them.

    I was not prepared for that. I knew there'd be some sort of heartache but I didn't realise how bad it would be. The tears did not stop and I didn't bother hiding them. Demyan is so much like his father but he's also his own man too. He loves fiercely just like his father and what he had to go through was so gut wrenchingly painful. And Ana, has the fire like her mother and the attitude like her father. I loved her and she also had to go through something no one should ever go Through! I loved Ko I was not prepared for that.

I loved Koldan also from the first sentence he was introduced. And as for Cavan. I have nothing to say about him. Filth like him don't deserve to be acknowledged. All the events that happen in the book more or less let's me know that there's going to be war between the Bratva and the Irish mob. And I cannot wait for retribution. It's a new generation and it's so weird not being in only Anton and Vine's world yet makes me so proud of them because they did a pretty good job raising their children. Time to start the last book in the series and I don't think I'm emotionally ready to start it yet or even say goodbye to the series.

When she said on her Fb page that "it would have to hurt for it to get good", I had no idea what she meant until I read the book.And by God, did it hurt (SPOILER ALERT:Please read with a box of Kleenex if you are highly emotional) but it was just too good.

A great prequel to 'Shattered' the next book in the series and I anxiously await its release.

    It's just a book! I was completely drawn into this story. I'm had to put it down to regain composure and continue on. There are several emotional moments. Demyan is all in now, and I am sure we gjve him all the permission he needs, not that he needs it. In the meantime, I am patiently waiting on the next installment. WOW!!!!!!!!!! It's just a book!

    So I deleted my review, trying to rid my bookshelves of it's duplicates.. *heavy sigh* This is all that I could salvage from the original one. Still a great heartbreaking novella that leads us into the final novel of the Russian Guns Series, Shattered. It has triggers of rape and the associated things that come with it, but it is still a great novella.

    I was literally crying, sniffling, and saying 'no, no, no' while reading parts of this book. It pulls you in and doesn't let go. I loved it. It had heart wrenching, sob inducing parts and parts that give off so much hope. I doubt the author will read this, but thank you for the message at the end.

    The author did an exceptional job with this novel (a rape victim) and I love it. I connected very easily with the main character Demyan as well as Gia. I felt both sides of their love for one another and their frustrations when their lives gets challenging. The same connection between Ana and Koldan was felt as well.  This was a shorter book than I am used to, but I the author didn't waste time with meaningless words and the past and present shifts happened naturally.What I liked even more about The author did an exceptional job with this novel (a rape victim) and I love it.

There is so much more to this book and dynamic story.  Overall, definitely a book I would recommend, great coming of age type of story that's not full of sunshines and roses but a victim with lingering emotional trauma. This is the first time reading a novel by this author but not the last and I'm looking to read more from her/him.

    A really powerful piece of writing. I was so utterly affected by this novella. I loved the story of Vine and Anton and this book was no different. I loved it but in a different way to their parents story.I wasn't sure how I felt about following two lives but you pulled it off well. I cried so hard that my throat hurt but I also found a deep beauty to the balancing of the stories. I look forward to the final book and I thank you for giving me a series that will forever be a favourite. A really powerful piece of writing. I was so utterly affected by this novella.

    OMG so this is the best book in the series so far for me. This is about Demyan and Ana's lives and the tragedy that happens to them because of one incident that happens to Ana, that sets of a deadly dominoes effect that spirals through the family. This story was heart wrenching and a fast paced read. We get to meet a lot of the same characters from the Vine and Anton's story. This series is definitely worth the read.

    This had to be the most heartbreaking novella I have ever read. I was not expecting any of the things that happened to happen. My heart hurt for Ana, but it broke for Demyan. It was too much pain, too much sorrow, too much heartache. But it was amazing writing that made me feel everything.

    It's novella length but I don't want to call it one because boy does that do it no justice. Unfortunately, thanks to reviews that didn't say spoiler alert, I already knew what would happen to Demyan in this novel. I had an idea based on the premise of his novel but it is certainly not the person I thought it would be and what about his relationship with Vera? I totally didn't see that happening and I expected a whole lot more anger from both himself at Ana and Ivan at Demyan.

I had an idea based on the premise of his novel but it is certainly not the person I thought it would be and what about his relationship with Vera? I totally didn't see that happening and I expected a whole lot more anger from both himself at Ana and Ivan at Demyan. I even expected this to test some decades old friendships. It's pretty hard to say more without giving it away and I won't be one of those reviewers. It was a tit for tat and I found some chapters I wanted Ana and Kolden more than I did Demyan and Gia. I still want Ana and Kolden more. Turns out I will only get 82 pages after Demyan's story but I'll take what I can get because I have always liked the brutally honest and Kolden is the definition. It was good to see Vine and Anton manage their children as adults, if even for a short while before depression and mourning took over. As for Gia, I never felt a connection with her and I guess that was intentional on the part of the author. I am curious to see what will happen in Demyan's book and I believe this was the perfect prequel to what could be an epic novel. Heavy topics that make you look within yourself. I don't know if it's me or if I am paying closer attention but every Bethany Kris novel I have read this year has had the element of rape and that note at the end gave me shivers. Quick and comprehensive while leaving you wanting more. Bring on more of the Russian guns and Liam? Damn. Who is this guy?!
