Summary

My husband. My tormentor.

The most notorious man in the city offers me a job.

Act as his dead wife.

Adrian Volkov isn’t the type of person who takes no for an answer.

He commands with an iron fist and all his orders are met.

When he approaches me with the offer, I have two options.

Go to prison or put myself under his wrath.

I choose to have a roof over my head. What’s so hard about acting, right?

Wrong.

The moment I step into his wife’s shoes, everything spirals out of control.

My only way of survival is through Adrian.

Or is it?

Vow of Deception is book one of a trilogy and is not stan-dalone.

Every time I think I've read my favourite book by this author something else comes along to say Nuh Uh. Because this was a rollercoaster of so much tension, suspense and wildness, I could barely stop my head spinning. We first met Adrian in the Throne Duet but we only saw one side of him. In this we get just a taste more because if I know anything about Ms. Kent, she's only just opened the door to Adrian. His love interest Winter on the other hand is the real dark horse here and while I can't give much away, I know I'm counting down the days for book 2 and I cannot wait to see how this plays out. I volunteered to listen and review a complimentary copy of this. All opinions are my own.

I received this audiobook via a promo code and this is my voluntary review.

"What are you going to do with me?"
"Whatever I wish."

Winter has been plucked from the streets where she's been living after being framed for the murder of a guy running the local homeless shelter. Unfortunately for Winter, her captor is a Mafia man. A man who insists that she's going to be his new wife because shes a doppelganger.
“From now on, you’re Lia Volkov. Wife of Adrian Volkov.”
Shes hardly in a position to argue as he's made it clear that with his Russian mafia connections, he will throw her to the police to spend her life behind bars if she ever tries to leave him. Though as she gets to know her new "son" and the cute Bratva brat steals her heart, and complicated feelings about Adrian begin to stir desire, she might not want to escape after all.

Told in fantastic dual POV I really enjoyed the narration.

This book is part of a trilogy with an awesome twist in the final chapter.

Fantastic!

The mystery surrounding Adrian and Lia in the first book of The Deception Trilogy is thrilling! The storyline is intriguing and exciting with plenty of heat and danger. There were times I didn’t like Adrian’s dominance and arrogance but with each book he grew on me… a lot!

10⭐️ PERFECTION ALL THE WAY.. until the cliffhanger

Rina Kent has my undivided attention when she releases a new book and, despite my “never touch a Trilogy until Book 3 is out” convictions, my resistance is futile when it comes to one of her books. But now I’m suffering BIG TIME and desperate for more in this Bratva cat and mouse suspense, intrigue and friction-filled hot story.

Winter was one of New York’s unseen and she wanted to keep it that way.. she’s been living on the streets in the shadows and survives with stolen alcohol to numb her memories and food when she can get it. Until the day a dark Russian comes into her life and, without remorse after setting her up, takes her. A mansion, a fortress, armed guards, another woman’s identity, secrets, rules, obedience, possession, discipline, submission, dominance, pain, penance, multiple ‘Os’, sexual awakenings and pleasure.. all for a purpose and some of the puzzle pieces are waiting to be put together.. but the chapters will keep you guessing.

Right from the start, every single chapter drew me in, consumed me and the mystery deepened as I tried to unravel the truth from the narrative.. all while Adrian aligns his pawns and his dutiful Queen for a game of winner takes all.. and the losers must die. He’s a possessive, jealous anti-hero and I loved loved loved him. Every well-plotted scene was a carefully placed brick from Rina Kent’s world-building tub of talent. The mind-games and action were vague outlines waiting to be filled in with truths. The sexual chemistry and underlying possessive dominant demands was hot and every feisty snark-filled comeback earned its skilled punishments and pleasures. There’s also a sweet little five year old who absolutely stole my heart. There’s so much more in store for Leah and Adrian and I can’t wait to see what revelations come next. The dual POV was acted out perfectly by Desiree Ketchum and Jason Clarke (.. with Russian and Italian accents girls💕 ) he moved with ease from the cast of character’s various accents and genders and the conversations flowed so well.

Worth a credit? There’s intrigue and suspicion around every corner as well as tension, suspense and danger in a complex layered multi-gemmed bedazzled storyline with mystery, secrets and, of course, the aaaarrrgghhhh WTF of a shocking cliffhanger ending.

***

No Spoilers.

Cliffhanger(?): YES!!! 😍😍
I’m so glad this is a Trilogy, cause then I know this Adrian & Lia/Winter’s story isn’t close to being done yet!
Relationship Type: MF
Heat: 5/5
Romance: 2-2.5(?)/5, Completely fits the storyline and love it!, it’s not insta, it’s twisted and confusing in the best way...Gosh... I love how this is going! Won’t spoil, sorry! 😆
Dark(?): 2/5, as of right now in the trilogy.
Drama: 3.5/5, not much drama to me, but man..the suspense!!!
Suspense: 5/5, I kid you not I was in the edge of my seat while read this! I love not knowing what the heck is going on! 😍
So Good! It’s such a great puzzle to try and figure while waiting for the Next Book.

This Trilogy looks like it most likely be one of my top favorites of Rina’s Works if not the Top, in all seriousness.
I cant wait to see what the heck is going to happen in Book 2!

**New**
Audiobook Review:
Overall: A Flat out Honest 5/5 across the board.
Story: 5/5!
Performance: 5/5!
Narrators: Jason Clarke & Desiree Ketchum
Holy Cow! Hearing Jason Clarke voice Adrian is incredible! He fits so well! I couldn’t get enough of him. He sounds like what an anime villain sounds like, and I mean that in the highest of compliments.
Its perfect!
I’ve gotta listen to more books with him narrating.

Desiree Ketchum is a very good narrator, I had to get used to her voicing Winter but the more I listened the better it got, and her voicing men is really good. And she is a Perfect for for Winter.

Formats Read: Ebook & Audiobook.
I literally just finished this Book and when the Audiobook came out, I was so eager to jump right back into the book again and this time listen to it.

After Listening:
My Mind Plays Audiobooks like a movie, and this was such addictive ADDICTIVE ‘Movie’! The ‘Visuals’ in every aspect of this book were so vivid to me.
This is definitely one of Rina Kent’s Best works, and having these two narrating together is/was sincerely a great decision, I am so excited to hear them Narrate the Next Two books.

I will definitely and most happily be listening to this particular Audiobook over and over again.

AMAZING Dark Romance

when Rina Kent tells you this book and series is going to be a twisted marriage, villainous hero, suspenseful mindf*k you need to believe her. I loved this book from the beginning and in some parts it gave me chills, I felt like I was there watching this story playing in front of me 😱 soo good. The book is extraordinary on it's own but add two great narrators like Jason and Desiree you'll get an unbelievable experience. cannot wait for the second book.

Wowza!!!

Gosh, this book was an amazing start to Kent’s latest trilogy! Doppelgängers, the Russian mob, mysterious elements, steamy scenes, and an adorable 5 year old boy!!! The storyline was all-consuming - I couldn’t stop listening as the questions and suspense continued mounting. I need answers!! Can’t wait to dive into the second installment and find out what happens next for Adrian and Winter/Lia. This narration duo is one of the best around. You won’t regret this purchase!

Worth every minute

This book was off the charts awesome!!!! I am an audible listener so I’m not happy, only the first book has been recorded but if you’re one of those people who have the time to actually read it’s worth it!!!!

The hero is definitely an Alpha male and strong, complex, character; the heroine is the same....The storyline, characters, and all is very intense, well written, and hot. The characters have great chemistry and make sense. This story was so great I may have to actually read it after all....We’ll see.....

The narrators definitely brought a life to these characters my voice can’t😂😂😂 Anyway, this book will definitely go on my favorites and re-read lists! I’m sure the whole series will. Btw this is part of a series 3 book series.....but trust me you will find it worth it and want to read! Couldn’t put it down....

This grew on me.

😑 I get frustrated with a stupid hypocritical character who lives in denial of their own choices. I was hoping for more Russian accents, but you hear more from Desiree than Jason and the lack of accent is part of the Adrian character. It increases towards the end 😁
The overall story is very interesting and as much as the female lead pisses me off with her sass, I really want to see her grow and continue the series.
Also, yes this has some very steamy and hot scenes. 😏🔥

So it begins ...

Wow! I knew Adrian’s story was going to be a doozy, but this first installment has exceeded all my expectations. I love how Rina leaves us all these little bread crumbs and just when you think you’ve got it figured out, there’s another twist. The cliffhanger ending left me screaming for more. I can’t wait to see how it all plays out.

This was a successful collaboration between Rina Kent, Jason Clarke and Desiree Ketchum. The Russian accent gets me every time.
