Vlad by Ker Dukey and K. Webster is the first book in a new series, The V Games, and the first book I have read co-written by this writing duo. It was a great read and I am looking forward to reading more from them!
Vlad was an interesting read. It is a dark mafia romance with a twist. Though we learn basics about The V Games, it was more of a tease. I feel there is so much to learn in future books, but this story does set a strong foundation on the families and dynamics involved.
The strongest families are the first families. The Vasiliev’s are one of those families and they are strong and very powerful. As the eldest son, Vlad Vasiliev has been trained from birth the importance of staying on top and always playing one step ahead of everyone else. He is dark, commanding, controlling and never does anything without a purpose.
To strengthen their family, Vlad is set to marry Diana Volkov, also from a first family. And Vlad will do his duty as expected. But the one he wants, the one he desires is the youngest Volkov, Irina. She calls to his protective side, even as he wants to dirty her all up. But as he is promised to Diana, Irina is forbidden. But he cannot stay away from her, even as he knows he needs to.
Vlad was not a good man and it was very difficult for him to deny himself. When desires are overwhelming, and the need becomes more than he can stand, what will be the cost? I read this story in one sitting. There is so much going on I was driven to know how it would all end. The secrets, lies, games are intense. Will Vlad lose it all or come out on top? This was a great start to this series and I am looking forward to reading more!

About Ker Dukey
My books all tend to be darker romance, edge of you seat, angst filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles…prepare for the unexpected.
I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bed time stories with my sisters growing up.
My mum would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. I tend to have a darker edge to my writing. Not all love stories are made from light; some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.
When I’m not lost in the world of characters I love spending time with my family. I’m a mum and that comes first in my life but when I do get down time I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.
