With twin brothers that are always at each other’s throats and an Albanian enforcer that thrives in chaos, holidays at the Volkov residence are always eventful, but Lauren Volkov is determined to make this Christmas the best one yet.
She has it all planned, down to the time presents will be opened, and little Sacha will get his new stuffed penguin, but Lauren knows better than anyone how unpredictable her life can be—and things don’t always go as they should.
Join the Volkov Bratva family, and other familiar faces, as they gear up to celebrate the holiday that will be unlike any other they’ve experienced before.
Christmas is all about catching up with family and making nice to each other regardless if they grate on your nerves the other 364 days of the year! Now of course I wouldn’t be referring to my family. I’m blessed our family enjoys being together at Christmas and agree we need to catch up more during the year. The Volkovs left me with a similar feeling, not that they said as much but the inference was there at the end of the book 🙂
The challenge for them all is to be able to put down their weapons and come together to celebrate the festive season. This is not a simple feat with their work taking them at times to other countries! Then there’s the sibling angst, that while getting better still had a lot of room for improvement. Fortunately their wives work their magic in convincing all to put their grievances behind them to indulge them this Christmas.
Wow, present giving was taken to a level that will put most of us to shame LOL. The planning and the gifts they gave to each other were all wonderful with the final one so perfect, it topped them all! That’s a big call because each and every present was chosen with an abundance of love and thought. One of the many highlights for me was Sasha asking if he should say ‘surprise now’ to his mother. It was so cute and my heart melted each time he asked his father.
Niklaus had the kind of smile that made her heart flutter—one that spoke of a million promises, and just as many temptations.
All the men featured in this story live, love and fight with an unquestionable passion. We get to spend time with each of the couples, with points of view being shared equally among them all. Each time a new couple entered into the story, I was reminded why I love this series so much.
Instead of the usual blood, love is what ebbs and flows all the way through this story . While the men are Bratva through and through, the only stars in sight in this story were the shining brightly kind. Well except for one occasion and that was in the festive spirit 😉 This is a book I could easily pick up and read again. The big bonus was the note at the end promising there will be more stories ahead from these wonderful characters!
5 Christmassy Stars!
