They say that crime knows no bounds. Or does it?
Doukas Tremes and his brothers, the Lords, are one of the most influential and dangerous crime families in Greece. In their world, everything revolves around crime, and they stop at nothing.
Having inherited a failing business, Ria Vamou tries to make ends meet. On top of everything else, a gang is pressuring her to pay them protection for her taverna.
Love is nowhere near her plans. All it takes is one night, one photograph, one kiss, and everything changes. Forever!
Nothing will stop Doukas from making Ria his because he finally found a woman worth starting a war over.

Doukas is the first full-length standalone novel in the Greek Crime Lords Series. It describes scenes of violence and sexual content, so please read at your own discretion.

is the first book in the Greek Crime Lords series and tells the story of Ria and Doukas.

Doukas is the first book I’ve read by Demetra Georgiou and it won’t be the last one! I really enjoyed reading Doukas and getting to know Ria and Doukas. This book is so fast paced and well written, I finished it in two days even though I’ve been experiencing a reading slump/having a lot distractions. This book was just that good! I really wanted to know how the story was going to end and I’m so happy that I got the opportunity to read this book as an ARC! 
"You make my heart stop, Doukas."
"But you make mine beat." 

I really liked Ria and Doukas. They’re so different from each other, but they are such a perfect match. While reading this book it felt like their relationship was a bit rushed, but the characters realised it themselves too, so it didn’t bother me that much. I really loved seeing them grow towards each other and I’m so happy that they got their happy ending. I also really liked Doukas’ brothers and sister. I’m so excited to get to know them better!

Doukas was such an amazing Romance read and I really liked reading it. I’m such a big fan of Mafia Romance books because I cannot get enough of  alpha men. I really liked Ria and Doukas’ story and I cannot wait to read about Doukas’ brothers and sister in the other books in the Greek Crime Lords series! I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I’m curious who it will be about!
