The Rise: A Dark Yaoi Romance

The Rise: A Dark Yaoi Romance - Amelita Rae NO. There is no such thing as red light district in Moscow. Or St.Petersburg. Or any city or town in Russia, where prostitution is illegal.
But ok, I’ll give this series a try.

2 stars.

I wish the author had placed this book in some imaginary city, not an existing one. As it is, I am going to assume this is some futuristic dystopian Moscow, not a contemporary one. At least that way I can continue with the series and not bitch every 3% of the book.

One more thing.
Mishka is a nickname. It can be affectionate or it can be rude. For a small chubby kid it’s very much an equivalent of “Teddy Bear”. For a skinny grown up it’s a bit rude, unless you are a close friend or family. Misha is a much better and more common short version of the name Michael (Mikhail).
