Review –

Jonas, after losing it because of Sarah’s vicious attack and almost death, has come back to his charming sexy, heart stopping self. Together, he and Sarah take down “The Club” and more and then rebuild their relationship into more than sex and passion but also trust in each other and in what lies ahead. A fantastic ending to a fantastic series.

Book Description of Dark Soul Vol. 1

October 27, 2011
Stefano Marino is a made man, a happily married west coast mafia boss who travels east to await the death of a family patriarch. All the old hands have gathered—of course sharks will circle when there’s blood in the water—but it’s a new hand that draws Stefano’s eye.Silvio “the Barracuda” Spadaro is protetto and heir to retired consigliere Gianbattista Falchi, and a made man in his own right. Among his underworld family, being gay is a capital crime, but the hypersexual—and pansexual—young killer has never much cared for rules. The only orders he follows are Battista’s, whether on the killing field or on his knees, eagerly submissive at Battista’s feet.

But Silvio has needs Battista can’t fill, and he’s cast his black-eyed gaze on Stefano. A fake break-in, an even faker attack, and Silvio is exactly where he wants to be: strung up at Stefano’s mercy, driving the older Mafioso toward urges he’s spent his whole life repressing. Stefano resists, but when the Russian mob invades his territory and forces him to seek aid, Gianbattista’s price brings Stefano face to face once more with Silvio—and his darkest desires.

The second volume in the Dark Soul series features the stories “Dark Whisper” and “Dark Night.”In “Dark Whisper,” Gianbattista may have broken Silvio’s heart and sent him off to the States, but he’s still just a phone call away. When Silvio returns from a sex shop with a bag full of goodies, Gianbattista can’t resist topping his boy one more time, even if they are 4,000 miles apart.

In “Dark Night,” the Russian problem comes back to haunt Stefano, and when a dark encounter leaves him bloody and broken, Silvio knows just the right way to ease his pain.

(Publisher’s note: this title contains explicit violence.)

Review –
I don’t remember how I came across Volume One of Dark Soul by Aleksandr Voinov but  even though it’s not my usual reading fare I gave it a try.  The end left a question in my mind so I purchased Volume Two but that’s it for me. I was very uncomfortable with the subject matter, let’s say, so I won’t be finishing the series.
This is erotica and there is graphic sex.
