    One thought on “Taken Back: A Bad Boy Russian Mafia Romance”

    1. This was a DNF for me in fact I only made it to 10%.The blurb sounded so good and exactly what I like to read I also noticed it was this authors first book so I really wanted to like it.Firstly the shy and innocent Sonya gets a job at a gentlemen's club but Sonya is in debt, credit cards bills are piling up she can't afford her car or her water bill and before this she was working as a waitress in a diner yet we're supposed to believe that she can somehow afford to use the same gym as the rich a [...]

    2. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free for an honest review. Thanks to Alyna Amorosi.)“You are lucky I can barely move, talking to me that way.”“What would you do, hit me? You brute.”“No, I would never hit you. I would”“What?” Sonya said with a bratty stare.“I would take you in my arms and make you mine.”I am sorry to say, but I did not like it at all. The beginning was good, but later it became really boring. I could not concentrate and get into it. The wri [...]

    3. DISCLAIMER TO MY FELLOW GOODREADERThis review is my personal opinion and may contain: spoilers, quotes, rants and swearing.***ARC received by author in exchange for honest review.***20 year old Sonya Valentina lost her mother tragically and has been suffering financially ever since. She was forced to quit nursing school. A man from her gym offered her a job at his business Sultan's Palace - a gentleman's club. Sonya has a soft naive personality so her new environment threw her into a den of wolv [...]

    4. This is Amorosi first novel and while the concept is well thought out the delivery is where she had problems.  She explained right from the beginning that the story was written in third person, yet the main character’s inner dialog was going to be in first person.  I’ll be honest, this was disjointed and didn’t read smoothly.  Amorosi would have been better served writing in first person and switching POV.  The story also jumps from present tense to past tense, which again was confusin [...]

    5. ARC received for honest review. I'm fond of this genre and admire anyone greatly who puts forth the effort to put out a book. I'm happy to see that others enjoyed this book, but unfortunately, it just didn't work for me. I found both main characters to be very two dimensional and couldn't connect with them. They were very young so that may have been part of what I didn't like, especially because she was acting like a teenage girl most of the time and they flipped on their emotions a lot. I could [...]

    6. Taken Back: A Bad Boy Russian Mafia Romance by Alyna Amorosi was gifted to me in an ARC in exchanged for an honest review. I am giving this book 5 amazing stars because this was my first time reading a book from this author, and I have to say she did a wonderful job. I have read a lot of mafia books and Russian mafia books are my favorite. So of course when a writer starts out there going to be some errors because its all a learning process, but for this author it wasn't like that. She created a [...]

    7. ***ARC received by author in exchange for honest review***Let me say, this the first ARC I ever from an Author. And I was flattered when I got that chance to read it. When I read the blurb for the story, I was hooked. I love it and I couldn't wait to get my hands on the story. So far, I've read one Mafia series, enjoyed I couldn't wait to read another one but by a different author.When I read Taken Back I felt it read more like a Thriller than a Romance. I didn't feel the hero and the heroine ha [...]

    8. **My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**This is the debut release for this author and although the plot was good, the writing did let it down.First you had to get used to the fact that the story changed points of view a lot without warning. We get Sony'a POV, Dmitri's POV and then we get the narrator.At times considering at what both have already been through they also seem to act like teenagers, when if brought up in the life they appear to have had the [...]

    9. So soThis was a good story but the characters were childish and the dialogue not believable. Sonya lost her mom in a car accident and bills start piling up so she gets a job at a “gentlemen’s club “ as a greeter. She meets Dmitri, who is in the Russian mob. When he’s uncle, head of the mafia, gets killed, Dmitri goes into hiding until he can take his rightful place as the boss. His cousin has taken over and is out to kill him. While gone Sonya gets herself sold to a sheik who wants her v [...]

    10. Not a bad readPoorly worded, but good story. A thrilling ride through the eyes of someone who is young I suppose. I won't read again but I'm not angry that I read it in the first place.

    11. Sonya Is Taken Back By Her Man, Dmitri! Sonya is a young, innocent and naïve girl. She is too trusting for her own good. After her mother dies, she struggles to make ends meet. Sonya meets a man at the gym, Halim, who offers her a job. He tells her that she can make very good money. The job is at a “gentlemen’s club” called Sultaim Place. Halim assures Sonya that she will only be a hostess greeting people at the door. Sonya doesn’t really feel comfortable with her job or look forward to [...]

    12. My favourite genres are 1. Romance and 2. Mafia and with this debut novel "Taken Back" I've found the best of both worlds! "Be careful what you wish for, you just might get Dmitri Veselov.”( I mean, yea, that happened!)Quick summary:We have Sonya our leading female MC, who is quite naive in some respects but also very loyal and caring. Caught in a sad financial situation, she finds herself accepting a somewhat sketchy job offer from a dapper businessman. Little did she know that this would be [...]

    13. Good grief What did I read? This is one of those books that had a slow build up for me but the twist and turns kept me on the edge of my seat. Our H is Dmitri Veselov and our h is Sonya Valentina.Sonya Valentina was a struggling waitress that had lost her mother and had to drop out or nursing school. To make ends meet she accepts a job from Halim, a man she met at the gym. Halim offers her a job working as a hostess at Sultan's Palace, a gentleman's club of his. While Sonya doesn't fit in at Sul [...]

    14. I received this for a honest review. I absolutely loved this story. Sonya and Dmitri story is a sweet, romantic, and full of danger story. It is about a sweet innocent girl that is so naive that it gets her in some serious danger. It is about a Mafia guy who falls hard for this sweet girl and will do what ever it takes to protect her. From the moment he laid eyes on her he knew she was the one he was the one he had waited for all his life. There are a few twist along the way but you will have to [...]

    15. Dmitri is Mafia all the way since his family is the leaders, but he has had a hard life when it comes to his childhood. Sonya has never met her father and her mother has already passed away, yet she has these childhood dreams of a little boy, she has no idea where they are coming from she just suspects him as an imaginary friend she had as a child. When Dmitri and Sonya meet at the club she is working for there is an instant attraction between the both of them, not knowing that they are both abo [...]

    16. Sonya meets Halim at the gym and he is not entirely honest with her when he convinces her to take a job at Sultan’s Palace; she would never have considered it if she had known the truth. While at the club, Sonya meets Dmitri and has a sense of déjà vu, while Dmitri, not a romantic person, knows Sonya is the one he has been waiting for, and years ago their lives were intricately entwined. Halim is manipulative and shows a special interest in Sonya; he wants her to do everything he says or she [...]

    17. Tree and his Princess****3.5 stars****This a debut book by this author.I'm glad that I got the opportunity to read this story and it was written well. Hardly any misspellings or mistakes that I could pick out. It was a fairly easy read and what's not to like when you have a hot 6'5, 230 lb blue eyed beautiful Russian mobster and a virgin girl who falls in insta lust/love with him. What I didn't like was the heroine too much. Sorry she was kind of wishy washy for me and a little too naive at time [...]

    18. Sonya is going for a job interview or so she thought. The big man with the even bigger belly that opened the door has other ideas. He wants her to strip and dance for him. When Halim walks out and tells her that she doesn’t have to strip, she will be working the door, Sonya is relieved. Until she realizes that what she is wearing will not do for working the door. She will learn that the gentleman’s club she works at is exactly what she thought. A strip club and she is working the door but sh [...]

    19. Alyna Amorosi is a new author to me and I was honored and excited to readTaken Back: A Bad Boy Russian Mafia Romance! 
Sonya Valentina has recently lost her mother and on top of that she picked up a second job as a hostess at a strip club since her waitressing wasn’t picking up the bills. A lot of shady men come into the joint, but there’s one man who’s extremely danger and he’s in the Russian mob. She shouldn’t be attracted to him, but for some strange reason Sonya feels safe under [...]

    20. What an intoxicating story. You get suspense, drama, love, lust, heartbreak, pain, sorrow, regret, hope, danger ,determination and lastly success. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. And boy was it great. You never got a chance to be bored the pages will keep you locked to the story. The story is about Sonya and Dimitri conquering all that was thrown at them and still stand tall together. Sonya is a beautiful twenty year old woman who is innocent to a lot of the world ugly fa [...]

    21. I am a sucker for Mafia Romance particularly when you throw in a dominate Russian – Dmitri was one hot and powerful man. This story at the start reminded me a lot of the Kristen Ashley book “Knight”, although not the same length and set in different environment, this had similar ingredients – naïve beautiful honest girl and a hot as hell Kingpin who fought his attraction but in the end nothing could keep them apart. This was definitely more grittier and had elements of the real seedy si [...]

    22. I received an advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Sonya is a hostess at a gentleman's club called Sultan's Palace. She's the window dressing, so to speak. Dmitri walks into Sultan's and notices Sonya almost instantly. He's pretty much a regular there, having fun occasionally with the personnel, but he takes an interest in Sonya and doesn't wait to pursue her. Actively. Sonya's past is sketchy, at best. Her mother was very secretive about their family and Sonya knows next [...]

    23. I received this book as an arc by the author for an honest review.The book intrigued me, I mean who does not want to read a book about the Russian mafia/love story. The one thing that stands out about this book for me, was that it was not saturated with sex scenes. This was a good thing for me, as I feel many of the newer books coming out are just sex scene after sex scene, throw in a little dialogue every few pages. However, this book you really get to know the characters especially Dimitri. I [...]

    24. This is my first read by Alyna Amorosi and was gifed an ARC in exchange for a honest review .So , where to start ? Although Taken Back is very entertaining and well written , and poor me , having a thing for mafia books and suck for the bad boys , I really couldn 't connect with Dmitri this time . Sorry , but, he really wasn 't my thing ! He infuriated me to no end .Maybe the fact that he was so fickle by times , then he was drawn to Sonya and later on, he pushed her away ,again , and again . I [...]

    26. I received this book as an arc by the author for an honest review.I love romance X mafia stories and this one was no exception for me. We have our two main characters Sonya whom I would describe as naive, cute and timid with a hidden aspect of her character and Dmitri who in looks seems like a hardened man but has his boyish charm and funny side- and I loved him. Their romance and their funny banter was the best aside from the action we got to read and imagine in our heads. This story seriously [...]

    27. *ARC gifted by author for an honest review, thank you Alyna Amorosi*I love Mafia/Bratva themed stories and there is a plethora of these books out there- some good some bad and I found this book to be somewhat unremarkable in that crowded genre. Had I not been gifted with the ARC I think I may have declared DNF before I was halfway through. I persevered because I did want to give this book a fair go. However it took me almost three times as long to read as it normally would and I did stop reading [...]

    28. So, this is the first book from this author. I thought it was a pretty good first time out. The one thing I would have liked is if the book was told in the 1st person, maybe every other chapter being hers then his. I felt at times the book was confusing with everyone's thoughts.e I really don't care what the bad guys are thinking.I also felt there was a big disconnect with the main charactersI never remotely felt any chemistry from them. I love a good insta-love book (they are my favorites) but [...]
