Review ~ Makarova Bratva Duet by Nicole Fox

Shattered Altar (Makarova Bratva Duet, #1)Shattered Altar by Nicole Fox
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a good start to the Makarova Bratva Duet. I liked seeing Olivia and Aleks interact from the beginning. I felt that I could see the direction of the story before it happened, and it was intriguing to see how Olivia would survive in Aleks world. I enjoyed the suspense and wondered how bad Aleks might be, but to me he seemed like the big bad wolf. They had an intense connection and tried to deny their feelings, but were happy to give into lust. Some twists I was able to guess easily, but overall I really enjoyed it!

It started with the mile high club.
It ended with a fake marriage and his baby in my belly.

I thought it was just a hookup on an airplane.
Let’s be cute and call it a “one-flight-stand.”
Or we could be more accurate and call it what it really was:
The day that ruined my life.

Aleksandr Makarova sure looked the part of the knight in shining armor.
Tall, rich, with eyes that promised all kinds of delicious things.
Not to mention, a body that delivered on those promises.

It was the craziest moment of my life.
But when the flight landed, Aleks disappeared.

I tried to pretend it didn’t hurt my feelings.
Back to my boring old reality, right?

The problem was, Aleks wasn’t really gone.

And when I stepped one toe in my house and saw what he’d done to my family, I realized… He wasn’t going away anytime soon.

Shattered Cradle (Makarova Bratva, #2)
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I jumped into Shattered Cradle immediately after reading the firstbook, Shattered Altar. I felt that this book was a bit repetitive as we were given some of the same arguments that happened in the first book. It felt like there was no growth for either Olivia or Alexs. The lust was still there, but neither character would admit their feelings. I figured who the bad guys were early, and it took a long time to get to the point, with both characters still bickering, not sharing feelings and not being able to trust one another. In the end I skimmed a lot of the book just to see how the book would wrap up.

I joined the Mile High Club and ended up pregnant.
If only the story stopped there.
But no—it gets worse.
It gets so much worse.

Because the man who swept me off my feet thirty thousand feet in the air didn’t pick me at random.
He chose me for a purpose.
A very specific purpose.

And when Aleksandr Makarova decides he wants something…
He gets it.
No matter what—or who—he has to break in the process.
