Review: Heart of My Monster (Monster Trilogy, #3). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Heart of My Monster by Rina Kent

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m a man with no morals or feelings.

The only reason I made it this far is to reign.

Nothing and no one will stop me.

Or that should’ve been the plan.

Now, my only goal is to get back the woman who belongs to me.

Sasha thinks it’s all over, but we’re only getting started.
She’s my woman. My partner. My wife.

Heart of My Monster

House of cards!

The heroine: Sasha – after surviving the brutal massacre of nearly everyone in her family when she was young, she began masquerading as a man to make sure she was not discovered and killed as well. She joined the Russian army and got herself into Kirill’s good graces, after leaving the army, she along with Kirill’s most trusted men went back to the US and are now fully entrenched in the Bratva. She believes Kirill’s father was solely responsible for the massacre of her family, though her uncle and babushka think Kirill was in on it.

The Hero: Kirill – he has always wanted to become the Pakhan of the Russian Bratva and he has been closing in on his goal. Though he knows he is in love with Sasha, he can’t let that out into the open or will be accused of pulling the wool over the eyes of the the bratva’s leaders. Since she has been masquerading as a man and is one of his most trusted guards.

The Story: It is always hard to write a review of a second or third book in a trilogy without giving things away, especially ones like Rina Kent writes since there is always a killer cliffhanger at the end of the previous book. This one is no exception. Though I don’t think it is giving anything away to let you know that things are no longer copasetic between Sasha and Kirill. She no longer believes the shady lies he has been feeding her.

This book started with a bang and kept me interested through to the end. I loved the fact that we finally get to see Sasha’s point of view of what happened to her family on that tragic Christmas so long ago. We also get a lot more insight into the way Kirill thinks and why he is always building a house of cards while thinking of strategic matters.

One thing I loved about this series was always the cast of colorful supporting characters which continued in this book. I love all the bratva leaders, especially Rai, who is a fierce protector of womankind and Damien, who has only ever wanted to fight Kirill to see who is the tougher man. Friendly Maksim and broody Yuri have also been favorites since they were besties with Sasha. They change and come into their own quite a bit in this story as well.
