The Vasiliev name is a powerful one.
We rule with an iron fist and we do it well.
Being the eldest, I am Father’s best hope at keeping us at the top of the food chain.

Everything I do has purpose.
Everything I do has reason.
Until her.

I play my games thinking several moves ahead.
Power. Power. Power.
Until her.

The next move requires I marry and soon.
This will strengthen us and secure our position.
But I am not to marry her.

I am to wed the eldest Volkov.
Problem is, her younger sister is the one who awakens my dead heart.
It is her I want in my bed and by my side forever.
Her. Her. Her.

In this game, though, it’s not about what I want.
But maybe it can be about what she wants.

I am Vlad.
Vile. Vicious. Villainous. Vasiliev.
And I will win eventually.

All the black, damaged evil inside me dilutes when I'm touching her- the sun casting out the darkness inside me.
I have read many dark/mafia romances, and usually I love them but there have also been many times that I found them to be a bit cliche and lack depth. When I started reading Vlad I didn't right away figure out in which category I would put this book in. I was just hoping it would be refreshing and exciting. Making the villains the main characters isn't an easy task in my opinion, because sometimes they change so much towards the end. Vlad, was a very brutal and no-sense kind of guy. He sometimes was pretty impulsive and acted before thinking. He will strike when someone does him wrong.
God, his smell is intoxicating. I hate myself for being drawn to him even when he's being a lunatic.
In the beginning I was very worried about his age (he is 22), I usually love my anti-heroes to be a bit older. Fortunately, he acted much mature than his age, probably because of the environment he grew up in. I don't know why but I couldn't fully warm up to Vlad. Some of his decisions were a bit too much. And he had Irina doing things that I didn't think was right. He was very jealous and protective, which I didn't mind that much. But I just couldn't 100% connect with him. The same goes with Irina, I was more interested in Diana, her older sister. However I did love the setting of this book, It felt new and intrigued me. The V Games didn't play a major role in this book, but I hope it will in the upcoming books. The authors gave us glimpses of what to expect from them.
Irina blinds me. Weakens me. Destroys me with her sweetness. And I can't look away. I willingly allow her to ruin every single thing about me.
Overall Vlad was a solid Dark/Mafia romance with very hot sex scenes (they were REALLY good). The story kept me intrigued until the end and I was looking forward to seeing what would happen next. The main characters weren't my favorites, however I am hoping that they will make appearances in the upcoming books (because I want to see how they will grow further). There are two very interesting characters, one of them being Diana, who hopefully will play the main roles in the next book. I think Vlad was a great first book the new V Games series.

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected. I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up. My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling. When I'm not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I'm a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
