Crooks and Kings (The Wild Bunch #1) by London Miller


In a game of crooks and kings, only the cunning survive …

Mariya Kuznetsov was a girl with secrets.

Christophe 'Fang' Lupei was a man with demons.

For her, it was supposed to be a way out from beneath the hands of a man who wanted her dead.

For him, it was supposed to be a job to make amends for a past wrong.

A bratva princess running from her past. A Romanian bank robber seeking atonement.

They were never meant to fall in love.

3.75 out of 5 stars

Crooks and Kings is a spin-off of London Miller's Den of Mercenaries series, but it can be read as a standalone.

The story is about Fang and Mariya. Two souls running away from their past.

Fang is trying to numb himself from losing a loved one, and Mariya is running away from her life in the mafia. The two have a lot of issues, but they complete each other. Their chemistry and attraction inevitable.

When Mariya's past finds her, Fang promises to protect her with his life.

I enjoyed the chemistry and storyline, but I think I'm more interested to read about the other members in the Wild Bunch. The story moved a bit too slow for me and I didn't really get attached to the characters.
