She was mine.
No one else’s.
Five years ago, life delivered a blow I barely survived.
On the edge of desperation, I thought my dreams were never meant to come true.
Thanks to Sociopath, everything changed for the better.
The life I so desperately wanted was within my grasp as my future brightened.
I couldn’t have been happier.
Until the Pakhan of Bratva decided I belonged to him.
Darkness and nightmares of the past surrounded my life.
Bratva became my home, accepting me with open arms.
I gave everything to it, my heart and soul.
Until my eyes landed on a picture of hazel eyed beauty as she woke up every possessive instinct inside me.
Rosa Giovanni became mine.
Unfortunately for everyone involved, it meant declaring a war between the Bratva and Cosa Nostra.
Man with the dragon tattoo
When Don and Pakhan focused on their war, the danger to their precious Rose escaped their notice.
Hiding in the shadows, I waited for the perfect time for my revenge.
Let the game begin.
Warning: Can be read as standalone, although it’s connected with Sociopath Duet series.
Pakhan is a two part series.
I don’t want to say that this book is pretty much the third in a series, but the same way #Junkie was linked to The Hashtag Series, this baby here is linked to the Sociopath
We got to meet Dominic in Sociopath’s Revenger the second book of the Socio series around the end where we can finally have Damian and Sapphire’s story resolution and we start this book from there.
I would like to say before digging in any deeper, that though I am sure this could be read easily as a standalone, I found it especially due to the complex backstory to actually read the two Socio books first. Not only because I love them but, it makes this one better.
In terms of Packhan’s Rose alone, I loved it! Dominic’s story is even worse that Damian’s and he is such a wonderful character, les sociopathic but again with so much drive. Those twins are more alike that they think.
Rosa is still as feisty and together they could power up every household in Russia on chemistry alone.
When you look at it with a step back I cannot help myself thinking that those two boys are really unlucky but do they love with a passion rarely seen on pages these days. For me it goes beyond love and obsession but totally fits with their profile and back history.
I am going to straight with you guys as usual, and tell you that this is another gem! There is no ifs or buts it is a piece of perfection on paper. I very highly encourage you to read it and you are so going to fall in love with Dominic the same way I did his brother before.
So there you have it, I think you ought to start reading this baby stat!
“Dark, gritty, heart pounding and sexy .. Pakhan’s Rose is one thrill ride of a read.” ~Books and Boys
“WOWWWWWW! What just just happened? What did I just read? Holy cow. V.F. Mason knows exactly what she’s doing and how to pull her readers in. A little bit of romance, a LOT of want, a dash of sadistic thoughts, a huge helping of possessiveness and you have yourself Pakhan’s Rose.” ~Engaging Secrets
“TOTAL Perfection!!!!!!! Flawless, immaculate, incomparable!!!! The Pakhan!!!” ~Expresso
V.F.Mason always loved reading books and had quite a few fights with her momma over the genre she liked (romance, duh!) She studied filmmaking and thought that would feed her desire for stories, but that didn’t happen.
Finally, when she was tired of all those voices in her head, she sat down and wrote a book. It was a huge decision to make and she thanks her friends and family for supporting her in it.When she is not writing, she can be found with her friends doing all sorts of crazy things or reading recent romance books that were written by her favorite authors.
