Book Review: Torrid by Nikki Sloane 

Book Review: Torrid by Nikki Sloane 

Hey babes! I’m so excited to share this review with you! Mafia romance books are some of my favorite types of books to read!! I was sent an advanced copy of Torrid by Nikki Sloane. This was the first book I read from her and I wasn’t disappointed!


Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.

I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.

Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.

If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?

My Review

I tend to like mafia romance books and this was no exception! It was an intense dark, dirty, hot, and drama filled book! It started off a bit slow but picked up a few chapters in. Vasilije is cold, ruthless, and dominate man who always gets what he wants. Oksana is a tough, brave, and fierce young woman who has a plan and is sticking to it. They had a strong connection and were drawn to each other right from the beginning! They both have dark secrets and are more alike than they realize. This was not an insta love story but I liked that about it! I really enjoyed this book and am curious about Vasilije’s brother Luka’s story now! I’ll have to pick up Sordid soon!
