    Ugh! I'm so sick of dumb, conceited, narcissistic (because we were once insecure females) in books. Boring, flat, wannabe, juvenile males. The first 30 pages of the book are literally about how attracted they are to each other. Ugh. She can also 'smell testosterone'. As well as fear. And virile scent. Wow. Need I say more?!. She got herself into a sticky situation not once but twice! Lord, who would actually ask her to represent them. *Facepalm* I've given it the point 5 because the writing styl Ugh!

This is an exceptionally well written story- and nothing less than what I have come to expect from this consummate storyteller. She manages to enthrall me with every new release, each book leaving me in complete awe of her talents. This book can be read as a standalone but believe me when I say that one of Ms. Boyes books will never be enough and you will WANT to go back to read the other books in the series too. This is a captivating mafia romance, with plenty of twists, danger, action, some violence, and sooooooo much more. I fell in love with the characters and their story, but then again, I expected nothing less from Ms. Boyes. We met Nikolai previously in the series, and I was immediately intrigued by him- but I have to be honest and say that I wasn’t sure I was going to ‘like’ him from what we had seen of him. I didn’t think I could become invested in him or his story- but I WAS SO WRONG!!! Ms. Boyes wove her magic, drawing me into her story and showed me that there is so much more to Nikolai than I had ever expected- and I couldn’t have loved him more than I do. Justine is fantastic, I just love how perfect she is and how wonderful these two are together. There are so many layers, facets and interwoven details throughout this series, little things that you read several books back, end up coming into play in ways you never expected. Brilliant!!!! I have developed a serious addiction to Ms. Boyes books- and it’s one I’m not about to cure anytime soon! Bring on the next book! KUDOS!!! Thank you, Ms. Boyes!

    This book is intense, hot and will have you so caught up in Nikolai and Justine. He is Mafia all the way with an alpha persona to rival Hannibal. He and Justine are like gasoline to fire and when they ignite it sets off explosions all over the place. This action packed story will definitely be memorable making sure that you will read the next book in the series! I voluntarily agreed to receive an ARC of this book for an honest review.

    Nice mob romance This is the first book that I’ve read by this writer. It was a little short but a good read . Nikolai is in the Russian mob and Justine is his defense attorney. The story kept me hooked and the couple had major chemistry . It ends on a cliffhanger so to find out what happens to Nikolai and Justine you have to read an additional two books !

    A weekend with a mobster. I like Nikolai. I've always said if you are going to be bad, then be the best bad you can be. Justine interests me because she has fire but she also struggles with her self-confidence, despite it seeming like she is a knockout. I like that they aren't afraid to drop their cards on the table and I like that they have a life before each other and still live it, even after they get together. I wanted more though.

He seems to stretch across many series and I somehow can't see him reigning in the same space as Nikolai so maybe he will finally meet his end. It wasn't an oversaturation of sex. Which I am grateful for coming off the Enigma series. I look forward to learning more about these two and seeing Nikolai in action. Their witty banter and brutal honesty makes for a good read and even better is that it's currently free on Amazon!

I like reading books like this but not where the heroine tries to change the guy! She needs to accept him for who he is or move on. Another thing that was almost unbelievable was how quickly she got over her attraction to her boss and transferred it to Nikolai, even though she knew how dangerous he was. There was never any doubt she would sleep with him, it was just a matter of when. Her internal dialogue and what not was a little nerve wracking, but it was tolerable because of how the author made it so that the connection between her and Nikolai was so strong, he knew what was going on in her head without her speaking about it.

    3.5 stars. I liked this story but didn’t like the writing very much. I found the writing inconsistent. Sometimes it would be ok but then the author would resort to using phrases she had already used elsewhere in the book. Some of the writing was repetitive and words were sometimes misused. For instance “He is commanding and direct with his crew, but the loyalty he shows his family is exponential, to a point it is nearly obsessive.” Exponential means to become more and more rapid so the author’s u 3.5 stars.

For instance “He is commanding and direct with his crew, but the loyalty he shows his family is exponential, to a point it is nearly obsessive.” Exponential means to become more and more rapid so the author’s use here makes no sense. At one point the author talks about a reaction taking too long, so long that it felt like the time it took the sun to go around the earth three times. Guess what? The sun doesn’t go around the earth. The earth goes around the sun! Later “It feels like the earth circles the moon three times before Nikolai...”. The earth doesn’t circle the moon! The moon actually orbits around the earth. I know this is not a big deal to some but come on! Do we really need to change science? Later in the book she repeats the assertion about the sun going around the earth as a metaphor for something taking too long. Where is the editor? One of the things I thought the author did really well was story pacing. This story never slows down to the point where you get bored with the story. It’s an interesting story right from the beginning. Interesting characters. And, even though the H and h don’t bump uglies until later the sexual tension between them starts early and the author keeps it upfront and center. I’m looking forward to the next book.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. While the story was interesting, it simply didn't move enough for me. The first 75% didn't tell much except that Nikolai was determined to bed Justine and she was conflicted because of her role as his lawyer. The sexual chemistry between the two main characters is basically the overriding focus, despite a wealth of opportunities to craft the history and suspense that I assume has been left for the other books in this series. I won't be reading them. The final 25% gives more insight about Nikolai While the story was interesting, it simply didn't move enough for me.

I guess that appendage is just that irresistible, right? No, I'm not buying that a woman who has been uber-focused on a goal for years would be so quickly dominated by her lust for a dangerous man. This good girl being mindlessly vulnerable to the bad boy needs to stop! Also, it would have been nice if the title had given some indication that this book is part of a series. If the author wasn't going to warn us that it ends on a cliffhanger, the least she could have done was let us know the story might not be complete. Well, it's complete for me. I didn't get enough substance to make me risk the next book being another 75% of sexual attraction and 25% of implied suspense.

    I'm so stuck on this story! Could not put it down, not unlike the rest of Shandi's books! She has a great style. The chemistry is off the charts between Nikoli and Justine from the moment they meet. The twisting tale of secret lovers keeps you guessing. If you a fan of Shandi's I married a mob boss I would highly recommend this book! I'm chomping at the bit to read the second installment!!! I'm hooked!!!!

    Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance (Russian Mob Chronicles) by Shandi Boyes 5 Stars **sigh** Had to take some time to write this review because as usual Shandi has messed with my mind, I don't know how she does it time and time again with every single book I read of hers.

My thoughts were all jacked up during this...Do I like this guy, or no? As the story progressed I realize Oh Yes I really like this guy..I was a bit unsure about Justine at first, I just wanted her to be a little stronger at the beginning, but she also drew me in quick once the story progressed. The heat between these two was something you could almost feel while reading. I love all the little stories going on with each of them, her brother, his Dad, I have a feeling this is going to be one of those series that I will be rereading many many times, and can I just say that I have also fallen totally in love with Roman and can't wait to see how his character is involved in the rest of this series. She has done it again, and I highly recommend this book and even more so recommend this author. She is in a class of her own. An automatic one click for me, I don't even read the synopsis anymore all I need is to see Shandi Boyes on the cover and it's a no brainer!! Loved Loved Loved It!!

When these two first meet you can feel the tension in the room. You could probably cut it with a knife. He makes no secret of his attraction to her. Nikolai is a man that is the ultimate bad boy. He is deadly, dangerous, and has an extensive criminal history. He is someone who is used to getting what he wants. Will this include the woman who is trying to defend him? She knows that lines shouldn’t be crossed with Nikolai. Their dealings with each other can only be professional. This is proving to be near impossible when her heart and her head are giving her different messages. Read this book to find out what happens. Oh my, this book was fun to read! I loved reading about the interactions between the two main characters. The story is fast paced and had me wondering what was going to happen next. It is a story that hooked me in from the very start and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. I would highly recommend reading it.

Nikolai is a story filled with twists and turns and danger and action and … well, it is a mafia story so I am sure you can imagine, at least to a certain extent! This story is obviously about Nikolai who at first I had really hard time to like and then, the more I learnt the more I started … hmmm…. liking him?!… and then there is Justine … every hero needs a heroine and I generally go more for stronger females but the more I read the more I could feel the heat and the chemistry between them … AND do not forget all these other little stories and sideliners that are peppered through the main story and I think I might need to re-read it as there were so many layers and I was simply inhaling it and I want to be prepared for the next steps of the journey … If you are looking for a new writer then please, be invited into the world of Shandi Boyes! You will not be bored AND there are loads of stories to gorge on!

    Over the last 6 months I’ve become a huge fan of Shandi Boyes.

You can cut the sexual tension between them with a knife. You can just guess that there are going to be fireworks between them. When an ‘administrative error’ means that Nikolai has to spend his time under house arrest living at Justine’s apartment you know you are in for some fun. The attraction between the 2 of them is obvious. Nikolai makes no secret of the fact that he wants Justine as much more than his attorney. Justine is fighting with her feelings as she knows that anything happening between them goes against the attorney/client etiquette. Added to the fact that Nikolai is a very dangerous man with many enemies, she should be running miles away from him, not getting closer to him. This is by definition a ‘page turner’. I was hooked by this book from the very first page. I cannot wait to read more of the Russian Mob Chronicles and continue Nikolai’s story.

Nikolai is an extremely hot mafia Prince. At first I wasn’t sure I liked him but it didn’t take me long to fall hard. He is arrogant, controlling, dangerous, intimidating, and very smart. He knows what he wants and it’s Justine. I don’t trust anyone, Ahren. The devil was once an angel too. - Nikolai There is so much more to this great read. I had several LOL moments along with some heart stopping ones. All of the secondary characters were great. The ending left me wanting more and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. 1-click and get started today on this great steamy read.

Knowing something is going to happen, but unable to predict the outcome is what had me so tense I was ready to snap apart. Shandi Boyes’ talent is evident once again. The way a reader is totally spellbound by these characters is a trait not many authors can achieve. But this author does it quite effortlessly. I know I am getting a powerfully raw story every time I read a story by Shandi Boyes. I can just never quite prepare myself for the beautiful splendor they truly turn out to be. 5 stars.

Shandi hit it out of the ball park with Justine and Nikolai. It wasn’t an easy wham bam and all steamy love scenes type of novel either. There were layers of stories and many different things going on that brought things together and led them to where they were. I am highly curious as to how things will eventually play out in the long run for everyone. I wouldn’t say this necessarily ended on a cliffhanger, but there is more to this story that I need to find out as soon as possible!

The characters grew in different ways. You start to see a different side to Nikolai and a more submissive side of Justine. Though I would’ve liked to see more personality from her. She was always just falling into a trance when Nikolai was around. I did like that she found her voice in a lot of their conversations. She didn’t let herself fear the consequences of her words. She was real through the whole book. I know I for one wouldn’t have been able to say no as she did.

    3 stars! Review below, toodles I’m rating this novel 3 stars. Here’s why. The plot/story line is interesting and I’m curious to see where this goes but it’s not crazy, never-sleep-again-until-I-finish-reading kind of good, it’s medium joy. HOWEVER. Jesus Christ, the heroine, Justine, i want to slap the shit out of her. Push over, turns to puddy anytime hero is near, goes stupid and can’t talk because he’s so hot, let’s him do whatever he wants, wants him but doesn’t want him but wants him again. 3 stars! Review below, toodles I’m rating this novel 3 stars. Here’s why.

Push over, turns to puddy anytime hero is near, goes stupid and can’t talk because he’s so hot, let’s him do whatever he wants, wants him but doesn’t want him but wants him again. Typical spineless heroine. Disappointed. Hero! Nikolai was interesting. He certainly didn’t bore me but he didn’t drive me up the wall in excitement either. He has a story, I want to read more about that. He was going through something that smoke so much volume I wanted to know what happened, his past. He’s Damaged, mafia prince, alpha hotness! Story line in general is decent, eyebrow raising, questioning, eye rolling (a lot), somewhat frustrating. At some points there is too much inner monologue. When the characters converse, I want the conversation to flow. Not reading several paragraphs of what heroine is thinking at all times, blah! Meh. It’s decent enough for me to move to book number 2! - tata

    Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance By Shandi Boyes 5 stars The excitement I feel when I see a new release from this author is amazing, the very first time I picked up a book from her I was captivated and I have now worked my way through every one that she has written and I am still just as captivated as I was with that first one. Whether it’s a standalone or a series the stories and characters she creates are just out of this world. Nikolai was a phenomenal read. I loved every single minute of it.

The writing was sharp, it flowed well, and there were twists, turns and excitement at every turn of the page. Nikolai was everything I love in a bad boy, he was dark, dangerous and oh so sexy! I did feel for Justine, she didn’t really stand a chance with Nikolai to be honest; he liked her, wanted her and was going to do whatever he could to get her! I never wanted this book to end – I need more and I kind of need it now! Thank you Ms Boyes for another truly amazing read! This is definitely a one click book for me!!

    needs more grit So I'm a little torn about this book. It was great writing. Had a filthy talking alpha hero, which is one of my favorite kinds. There are just a few things that were missing for me. One, I wish this was dual POV. Not that that makes this bad, just would have been preferable to get into Nikolai's disturbed head. Second, since this was going to be a trilogy I kind of wished this has more a bomb droppage at like 85% but it was anticlimactic.

And that also makes me want Nikolai to be a jerkface that talked more of the hierarchy and didn't decide over 36 hours that she would be worth the blowup in his life that's about to happen. So I will continue reading the next book. This wasn't bad. There wasn't anything necessarily wrong with it. I just needed more. Considering it was a Russian mob book I just kind of expected more filth and some cringe worthy situations. I appreciate people change and grow but not in 36 hours. I kind of wanted more 'holy ball's moments.

    Definitely a bad boy Yeah, Nickolai is bad. He's mafia bad, but he's also bad boy bad. The kind we all love. And he's got it bad for his attorney, Justine. I enjoyed the development of their relationship, but I was a little annoyed at how dazed and confused Justine became around him in the beginning. Lust drunk i s one thing, but this was a bit much.

That was another thing that kind of annoyed me. Her scars made her self conscious, but she was a bit extreme with it. But Nikokai showed her she was still beautiful. The writing itself was a bit distracting at times, and the author found some unique ways of describing everyday things and events. Points for creativity but it was a bit over done. All in all though, I really enjoyed this and I'm off to read the next one.

    Shandi Boyes has done it again with another addicting story. Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance is also the beginning of the Russian Mob Chronicles. This story is full of humor, sexual tension, and some violence. When Justine Meeks Nikolai it’s while convincing someone to testify against him, she never realized how everything would change after that. All if took was one moment for their eyes to connect and Nikolai made it very clear how much he wanted her, and how he would have her.

Can Justine fight off her bodies wants when she’s forced to spend time with Nikolai? With the sexual tension at an all time high, the touches, the remarks who will end up succumbing to their desires first. Nikolai or Justine. This story was great it sucked me in right away, kept me entertained the entire time and made me want more by the end.

    Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance by Shandi Boyes is part of her Russian Mob Chronicles. This book is intense and gripping from start to finish. Two worlds collide when a mafia prince and a defence attorney meet. Two worlds that should be entirely incompatible find themselves being melded together. I am choosing not to go any deeper into the details of this story as I loved the fact that you almost go into this blind. The blurb gives nothing away to the emotions and the powerful story that you find Nikolai: A Mafia Prince Romance by Shandi Boyes is part of her Russian Mob Chronicles.

I am choosing not to go any deeper into the details of this story as I loved the fact that you almost go into this blind. The blurb gives nothing away to the emotions and the powerful story that you find within these pages. The characters are so interesting. Complete opposites and yet they work so well together. The chemistry between them is obvious from the moment they meet and does not diminish at all. And well the story was just fascinating. I couldn’t wait to see how these two characters would make their worlds combine. A well written story and one I thoroughly enjoyed.
