Review: Demetri by Crystal Daniels and Sandy Alvarez

Published Aug. 2019

★★★★☆

Demetri –

As the ruler of The Volkov Empire, Demetri has made many sacrifices for the sake of the family.

Those sacrifices meant nothing after uncovering his father’s dark secrets and his ex-wife’s lies, and betrayal.

Looking to rebuild what was taken from him, Demetri sets his sights on Montana, where his path collides with a feisty, headstrong woman who unintentionally ignites a spark he thought had been extinguished forever.

Glory –

Putting her life on hold, Glory dedicated two years to helping her best friend and Goddaughter escape the clutches of evil.

Now with the threat dead and her friend safe, Glory feels like she can finally move on with her life.

So, she thought.

With one day bleeding into the next Glory finds herself feeling lost and hollow inside.

Until Demetri Volkov enters her life again.

Demetri is King of the criminal underworld, and when Glory gets caught in a war between two Mafia Empires – taken and used by his enemies as leverage to get what they want; he does the only thing he can.

He kills.

Showing no mercy, and leaving a path of destruction, Demetri proves he will stop at nothing to get her back.

May be spoilers:

Demetri is the first in The Volkov Empire. It has 20 chapters and is about Demetri and Glory. 

Glory is best friends with Grace and Demetri is Logan and Nickolai’s dad. 

They met when Glory was attacked by Grace’s ex. 

There is a part in the prologue with her picking up a ons and making out, but she stops before anything else happens-not really a fan of that because she knows Demetri is hers. 

They have wanted each other since they met.  

Neither are virgins. Pretty good steam. 

I do like to mention: She was raped awhile ago, so there is just a couple brief mentions of that and Demetri had a dead ex who he actually did love, but she’s been gone for many years. 

Never felt like she was second best. 

I loved this story. Kept my attention from the beginning. Loved seeing characters from other series. I actually need to finish the other series. 

I loved how Glory and Demetri felt about each other. Could definitely feel their emotions. 

Lots of violence. 

No cheating, ow-his ex, no om drama, no real separations other than distance when they actually get together. 

Epilogue is just a week out. I do wish it was further out, but I’m sure we’ll see them in future stories. They are happily together. 

Great read. Reads fast and easy. 

I gave it ★★★★☆. Have you read it? What did you think?
