SHANDA'S 4.5 STAR REVIEW
I have read a few Bethany-Kris books and I think Where the Sun Hides has to be my favorite. I haven’t read anything by London Miller but I will definitely have to change that.
Where the Sun Hides grabbed me right away and I loved the opener with Kaz and Violet as children playing while their fathers discussed business. This is a Romeo and Juliet tale told in mob world with the Russian Bratva and the Italian Famiglia as the backdrop.
You have Violet Gallucci the Italian Principessa who is definitely daddy’s little girl. She has led a pretty sheltered life but Violet has always been a bit wild and wants to break free. This leads in her into Kaz Markovic’s territory. On a night out with friends she lands in his club even though she knows that part of town is off limits to the Italians. It’s not long before they take the risk and start sneaking around even though they know it will end badly.
I really loved the forbidden romance aspect of the story and you can’t help but fall for Kaz. It is clear what Violet sees. He is a hot Russian for one; but more than that he is protective, confident, and caring. He is also pretty badass so I was definitely sold on Kaz. I wasn’t sure about Violet because at times I felt she was a bit bratty but she was raised with the idea if she messed up her daddy would sympathize. It’s not until it involves his enemies that she sees her father for who he is and what he won’t forgive of her. I loved how Kaz opened her eyes to how they treated her. I am hoping in book two we will get a stronger more badass Violet.
Well done and I can’t wait for the next book!
