Tanya Rae’s Review: Wow I can’t believe I finished Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen (Book 2) so fast all 338 pages in one sitting! I didn’t want to put this book down. I was really saddened by Royal’s depression but, that was completely understood from what happened in Dmitry’s Closet. (No spoilers but, I hope I made everyone reading this curious!) Another really good read. The characters have been developed even further in this book. There were a few twists and turns in this book that I didn’t see coming. I do love that Dmitry seems so committed to Royal and his daughter! Although, he is ALL man. I can’t wait to start Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign (The Medlov Crime Family, #3)
Book Description on Amazon:
From the popular multicultural author, Latrivia S. Nelson, comes the highly anticipated second installment of the Medlov Crime Family Series, Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen.
For Dmitry and Royal Medlov, money doesn’t equal happiness. Forced to leave Memphis, TN and flee to Prague after a brutal mafia war, the couple nestled into the countryside to raise their daughter, Anya, and lead a safe, quiet life. But when Dmitry’s son, Anatoly, shows up with an offer he can’t refuse, Dmitry is forced to go back to the life he left as boss of the most feared criminal organization in world. Consequently, the deal could not only destroy the Medlov Crime Family but also Dmitry and Royal.
Royal hasn’t been the same since she was attacked three years ago. Where she used to be a sweet, innocent girl, she’s now the jaded, bitter mistress of the Medlov Chateau. However, a reality check is in store for the prima donna when Anya’s new teacher shows up with her sights set on stealing Dmitry, and Ivan’s old ally shows up with his sights on killing him. Can Royal save them all? Will she?
With a family in such turmoil, the only way to survive is to stick together. Read the gripping tale of a marriage strong enough to stand the test of time as Dmitry realizes that he has the best cards in the house as long as he has a Royal Flush.
