ARC Review: Dark Soul 4 by Aleksandr Voinov

Dark Soul Vol 4
Aleksandra Voninov

In “Dark Rival I,” the noose tightens around Stefano Marino’s neck. While Silvio and Franco are off taking care of the Russian problem, mutiny brews in Stefano’s crime family. It soon becomes clear he can trust only one man in his life, but whether he can hold on to Silvio—and what it might cost his marriage—are questions for which he has no answers.

In “Dark Rival II,” Silvio returns from his mission. Job done, threat gone, Stefano knows Silvio has no reason to stay. Or so he thought, anyway, until Silvio makes his move. It seems Silvio wants only sex, but Stefano is well aware there’s much, much more on the line. Including Donata, whose suspicions of a mistress in Stefano’s life are uncomfortably close to an even more uncomfortable truth.

Hopeless and helpless as his life crumbles down around his head, Stefano gives in to his desires in “Dark Temptation.” He isn’t any closer to understanding Silvio—and he’s farther from Donata than he’s ever been—but at least he’s come to understand his own needs. Now if only he could figure out how to be himself without hurting the ones he loves the most.

I obtained the above information from Riptide Publishing!

For those of you that know me... and those that don't this is my little statement about short books.... I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that - short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer... but it is a short story. So with that said.... here is my review...

I am just warning you.... This is a review about m/m reading. So, if this is not your cup of tea... just drop a line and say hi!! If this... then keep reading!

Dark Rival I ~ Stefano is starting to feel the heat. But this time, instead of the heat coming from the enemy... It is coming from his own "family." That is never a good sign when your family starts to doubt you or your actions. Threads start to unravel and things start to slip... All the while, Stefano is learning a few hard lessons about himself but those lessons might come with a price he's not willing to pay. Or is he? The drama, the intense suspense, and the affairs keep getting darker and darker. Aleksandr, you are a wicked person! The story just keeps getting better. And damn you for making me stay up late reading it! Now off to read...

Dark Rival II ~ The war may be over but Stefano is still fighting a battle... But is it a losing battle? Is it going to be one where he gains all that is needed to win or is he going to lose everything and have nothing and no one to run to when it's over? Stefano is playing a dangerous game, one where someone is bound to get hurt... Lives have been lost, trust is slowly bleeding away, and love is giving way to lust. One wrong word could crumble his life.... Will Stefano stand up and be the man he needs to be, the boss he declares himself, the leader of the family... Or will he succumb to the ways of a coward and run? Damn this story is getting better and better!

Dark Temptation ~ Oh damn, it looks like the dam has broke and Stefano has just about lost his control when it comes to Silvio. The story is not over... Nope... There is more to come with book five. Of course there is more... Why because we have to find out if Stafano can have his cake and eat it too, I mean just because the Russians are put out of their misery doesn't mean there will not be retaliation from someone... Or hell, who knows if his own "family" won't try to turn over his position. There is always mutiny brewing up... Or is that the affairs... Hummmm... Who knows???
