Tanya Rae’s Review:
I had a friend recommend Dmitry’s Closet too me and I loved this book it was a love story between a Russian Mafia head (Dmitry) and Royal a beautiful black woman. I enjoyed this book and it was the first Mafia romance that I have read. Dmitry’s Closet had Russian Mafia gorgeous hunks in it. I have so many possible spoilers….but, I won’t go there…..
I really feel the grammatical errors that was talked about in another review was that these men were Russians and the author was trying to portray the way the Russians would speak English. So, that did not bother me while reading this book and I can get over that and say that I really enjoyed Dmitry’s Closet.
