The Bastard’s Bargain (The O’Malleys #6) by Katee Robert 


When Keira O’Malley was a child, she used to picture her perfect wedding. The flowers. The dress. Her husband. But nothing could have prepared her for saying “I do” to Dmitri Romanov—cold, domineering and always one step ahead of everyone else in the ever-shifting power plays of New York City. She agreed to his bargain to secure peace for her family, and she may want the bastard more than she’d ever admit, but she’ll be damned if she’ll make this marriage easy for him.

Dmitri knows better than to underestimate Keira for one second. Molten desire smolders between them, a dangerous addiction neither can resist. But his enemies are already on the move, and he needs every ounce of his legendary focus and control to keep them alive. Keira could just be his secret weapon—if she doesn’t bring him to his knees first.


5 out of 5 stars

I am thrilled with how this story played out and loved every second. It's a complicated world full of so many different dynamics and layers, I could not get enough. I loved Dmitri and Keira! They had an intense and volatile relationship and as soon as I picked it up, I was gone to this world the author has created.

Since first meeting Dmitri Romanov, I have wanted his story. This gruff villain that you want to hate but he does these small, endearing things that have you rooting for him. His story did not disappoint. He was so complex and passionate. He was a fantastic anti-hero. Now Keira, she had some problems and I was not her biggest fan in the beginning. Seeing her work through her issues, let down her guard, and really grow into this amazing force was awesome. By the end, I was her biggest fan!

Together Dmitri and Keira were crazy awesome, like fire and ice. There's a lot of tension and simmering passion between them and I could feel that push and pull. I loved their verbal sparring, some snarky, some sweet, but the more they come together the more playful it gets and it made them really entertaining together. I loved those special moments between them. And the passion? Holy heck this sucker was hot. It was like a building pent up energy between them. All that want and need made for some really heated scenes.

The storyline was fantastic and I loved all the drama making this a serious page turner. There's an excellent cast of characters as well from previous stories so you get a glimpse of everyone in the series. This is completely standalone so you won't be lost while reading but I highly suggest reading in order just because you see this awesome build in Dmitri over the course of the entire series.

I  love this world that Katee Robert has created in The O’Malleys series. It's full, detailed, and intense. Each book has had me hooked every time but this one, hands down, is my absolute favorite. A must read!
