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.

What is it about these Russian Bratva men that make me despise them so much then fall absolutely in love with them?
Tempting the Badman is the 5th installment of the Russian Bratva series by Hayley Faiman. Which I am obsessed about!
At 5 years old Inessa Kozlova saw the destruction that a badman can leave behind. Nowshe refuses to give her heart or her future away to a badman. That is until she lays eyes on Dominik Markov, a Bratva playboy.
These Russian Bratva men! Rarely do I read a book that leaves me furious with a character, but Dominik had me in a rage. He was so alpha, refusing to explain anything that would save Inessa pain or humiliation. Letting her believe the worst of him at times because he knew sooner or later he would fail her. Just when I had enough of his crap, he starts to show just a little emotion. Hayley Faiman started digging deep into Dominik's core exposing his vulnerability when it comes to this one woman.
Inessa was a strong woman. Dominik could have broken her and it was close. She could have accepted the course her relationship with Dominik was heading, just giving in. But Inessa is a fighter, she wasn't going down without a fight. But as much as they fought, the making up was HOT! This couple couldn't stay out of the bedroom, shower, coffee table or off the wall!
I loved this story. The drama, angst, lust, sex and love it was the perfect read!
