Review by Sara: Sapphire by JA Low

An unconventional love is tested to its limits in this completely immersive dark ménage suspense, for fans of JL Perry and Pepper Winters.

Mateo is used to being in the spotlight, he craves it in everything he does . . . except when it comes to his love life - that is firmly in the closet. 

Tomas shuns the spotlight, the one he was born into, he wants nothing to do with it or his high-flying family who now reject him for his choices in love. 

But Tomas' and Mateo's carefully constructed lives are turned inside out when they discover a beautiful, battered woman on their doorstep. The woman with the sapphire eyes has no memory of who she is or how she got there. Can they help her remember before the men who are after her find her first?

The first standalone book in the BRATVA JEWELS series from the author of the DIRTY TEXAS books, JA Low.

5 Stars

OMG! This was an AMAZING book. It will suck you in from the very first page and not let you out until you finish.

I usually am not one to like the darker side of romance but this book was out of this world.

The steam level of the sex scenes in this book are off the charts! I seriously needed a fan a few times because they were just that hot. I don't think I have ever read any scenes as steamy as JA Low's.

Parts of this book can be a bit confronting as it involves the Russian mafia, the Bratva, as well as sex trafficking. However, even knowing that I still would highly recommend reading this story.
The story starts with Zoe, who is a university student in Barcelona, going out on the town with her sister Gracie. They meet two very attractive Russian guys, Nikolai and Dmitri. Nikolai lulls Zoe into believing they are in a relationship and invites her back to his home country of Russia. What Zoe doesn't know is that this is the start of what will become the worst decision of her life.

After trying to escape from the Bratva, she finds herself beaten to within an inch of her life and dumped in Ibiza. Her two rescuers, Mateo and Tomas, are two very successful men who take her under their wing. The romance that buds from this relationship is truly beautiful.

The secondary characters in this book were just as enjoyable as the main ones. Zoe's mother had me cracking up at the best of times. She has absolutely no filter.

Overall this book is the perfect balance of romance, thriller with a tiny bit of comedic relief thrown in. Seriously, you need to read this!

"JA Low lives on a faraway beach in Australia. When she's not writing steamy scenes and admiring hot surfers, she's tending to her husband and two sons, and dreaming up the next epic romance."
