At five years old, Inessa Kozlova is exposed to the dangerous power a badman wields. Now, twenty years later, she’s convinced that a badman is the last thing she wants in her bed. Strong, beautiful, and independent, she’s determined to live the life she wants on her own terms. Yet, from the moment she lays eyes on her Bratva lover, her heart demands otherwise.
Dominik Markov owes his life to the Bratva. Having grown up in prison, he associates his ties to the mafia with liberty. Embracing his freedom, he takes all that life has to offer—including all the women he can get. Known as the Bratva playboy, settling down is not his idea of happiness, and love is a mystery he wishes not to solve.
It doesn’t take long for Inessa to learn that the power of love is more dangerous than that of any man, and she’s no match against her feelings for Dominik. Yet, it’s Dominik who is brought to his knees—tempted by the only woman who has ever made him want more. Discovering that the cost of more is surrender, he must decide what kind of badman he really is—and if the woman who tempts his heart is worth it.

I was so lucky to receive Tempting the Badman by Hayley Faiman. I am giving this book 5 stars because Inessa and Dominik story was complicated but also so good in so many ways. Their story just made you want to throw your book sometimes, but no matter what you just couldn't put the book down each chaptered captured you in so many ways. I have read all the Russian Bratva books and just when I think I have a favorite couple the author comes out with a even better couple. But each couple are so different in so many ways that's what makes each story so different and also what makes them so amazing. And book 5 proves that with how much Hayley is so creative with these characters. Here is this beautiful woman who hates the Bratva and wants nothing to do with them, but she gets thrown a curveball when Dominik walks into her life because his life is the Bratva. How will she be able to love him knowing what his apart of. Not only does she have to get passed what a caveman he is especially when it comes to her, but she also how to accepts him being apart of a family he would die for. Dominik is a closed off person who keeps a wall up but little by little Inessa is starting to break that wall down. He knows he loves her and doesn't want to live without her. But can he make it work can he get her to accept the Bratva, and make her understand that no matter what if she stays with him she accepts for who he is with flaws and all. They both have to overcome so much to get their happy ending. What I loved most of all was no matter came their way they knew they had each other in the end. This is one of those book where love can conquer all if you're with the right person. I personally love stories like this if you do too then this is the book for you. You don't have to read the whole series each book is a standalone, but I think you should read all of them just so you can understand each character better. But like I said you don't have to.
