4 SAVAGE CROWNS
Savage Mafia Prince, the conclusion to the Dangerous Royals series, is not what I was expecting nor was Kiro. Both of these surprises kept me engaged from the first page.
Kiro is a complete and total savage. His brute strength, his ideas, and his interactions with others all indicate that he is nothing but a wild man not fit to be with the public. However, there is a whole other person lying dormant. Underneath his rough exterior is a deeply emotional man. So many times my heart broke for Kiro throughout this book. His search for a family and the need for acceptance is just completely gut wrenching. On the opposite end of the spectrum, his raw animalistic aggression was just completely HOT! The violence and destruction he left in his wake shouldn’t have been attractive; however, just like Ann, the reader is completely enthralled with the ferocious nature of this man. His dedication to the people he loves is also another admirable trait that makes him a fantastic hero.
Ann, the heroine of this story stumbles upon Kiro, and unlike everyone else around him, she senses the personality that is lying beneath his catatonic facade. From the minute they connect, even though it is the tinniest moment, the chemistry between the two is palpable. Her desire to help him, to do what is best for him, and to return him to his home will make the reader love her, because that is what we want for him.
The sex in this book is aggressive, raw, and uncivilized, which makes sense based on the main character of the book. I found these scenes to be explosive and actually served to develop the characters and their relationship. These scenes also become about more than the sex; the emotions that run through them exhibits how these sometimes animalistic encounters between them exemplifies how much they care about each other.
The plot of this story is engaging from the very first page. There is danger lurking around every corner for Kiro and Ann, leaving them no choice but to depend on each other. By fighting off these dangers, the two grow closer as they try to find their way to safety and home. The book culminates with the face off the reader has been waiting for since book one. The reunion is heartfelt, yet quickly interrupted with the impending battle, and I wish there would have been more for the brother’s, even if that came later in the book. The falling action and resolution of the book will leave the reader satisfied with the story, but I would have ultimately liked more about them after the war is over.
Annika Martin’s Savage Mafia Prince is unlike any other romance I have read. These characters and their stories will have you sitting on the edge of your seat waiting with bated breath to see how it will all unfold, so if you haven’t started this series yet, then do it! Fulfill the prophecy!

Where is Kiro?
He’s the lost Dragusha brother, heir to a vast mafia empire—brilliant, violent, and utterly savage…and he’s been missing for years.
I’m supposed to be doing simple undercover research at the Fancher Institute for the Mentally Ill & Dangerous, but I can’t keep my mind off Patient 34. He’s startlingly young and gorgeous, but it’s not just that. He’s strapped way too tightly to that bed. And there’s no name or criminal history on his chart. What are these people hiding? My reporter’s instincts are screaming.
Here’s the other thing: the staffers here believe he’s so sedated that there’s not a thought in his head, but I catch him watching me when nobody’s looking. Our connection sizzles when I enter the room. When our eyes meet, I know he understands me in a way nobody else ever has.
I’m supposed to follow my editor’s orders—I have secrets, too—but everything about Patient 34 is suspicious. How can I not investigate?

Dark Mafia Prince – now available!
They destroyed his family, stole his kingdom, hunted him to the ends of the earth.
Now the beautiful prince is back as a dark killer, ready to take everything.
And it starts with her.
Don’t look at me like that. So trusting.
Like you think I’m not a monster.
Like I won’t wrap your hair in my fist and bend you to my will.
Like I won’t sacrifice you, piece by bloody piece, to save my brother.
I’m the most dangerous enemy you’ll ever have.
Because every time you look at me, you see somebody good. That friend who died.
And when you look at me like that, I die again.
I spent years making myself invisible. A good girl, apart from the noise.
Then you returned, beautiful and deadly in your Armani suit.
Don’t look at me like you still know me, you say.
But I remember your smile. And I remember those sunny days.
Before they lowered your small casket into the ground.
Before they told us the prince was dead.
Then you betrayed our mafiya family—the only family either of us ever knew.
Heartbroken, I did the honor killing. I threw you off a cliff.
When I learned you were innocent, it ripped me apart.Now, years later—somehow, impossibly—there you are, alive.
The nun who never shows her face, trapped on the other side of a computer screen.
How can it be? My brothers think I’m obsessed. Imagining ghosts. But I’ll always know you. And I’m coming for you.
