Dmitry’s Closet by Latrivia S. Nelson

For the first time in his life, Dmitry Medlov was considering breaking the code, departing his empire and starting a new life with Royal Stone.  But, because of his ties to the Russia Mafia as the ruthless leader of the Medlov Organized Crime Family, that was easier said than done, especially since every known law enforcement agent was determined to take him down.  And, it didn’t help matters much that his one and only blood brother was trying to take over his kingdom by permanently eliminating him with deadly force.  Yet, the worst part of it all was that his beloved Royal was totally in the dark about his criminal life.

While searching for a job, Royal Stone met Dmitry Medlov.  Greatly intrigued by her, Dmitry instantly hired her to manage his new clothing boutique named Dmitry’s Closet.  Although, surprised by the offer, Royal felt very gracious by the opportunity and quickly agreed to the offer.  It was long before a super hot love affair blossomed between them.  What Royal wasn’t aware of was that Dmitry led a double life as a Russia Mafia crime boss.  When discovered, will she or won’t she continue to be his woman?

Wow!  While I devoured Dmitry’s Closet, I felt as if I was right smack in the middle of a smoking hot soap opera.  This plot had the true markings fantastic storyline where race had no boundaries.  It was jam-packed with drama, cold-heartedness, betrayal, envy, humor, suspense, lust and raw passion.  Once started, I simply couldn’t get enough.  I was hanging on the edge of my seat turning page after page eager to see just how the story would unfold.  Dmitry and Royal were on total opposite ends of the spectrum.  Whereas Dmitry was worldly wise and callous; Royal took things at face value and was very inexperienced – almost too native.  Yet, she fitted perfectly with Dmitry and made him want to have more out of life than his criminal activities.  She softened his outlook on life.  Dmitry’s Closet is not for the faint of heart because it contained violent actions that some might find offensive.  Nevertheless, it needed to be told because of the cruel lifestyle of the mafia.  If you are looking for a thrilling read that will capture and tightly hold your attention from start to finish, then look no future than Latrivia S. Nelson’s Dmitry’s Closet.

 

The Many Sides of Dmitry Medlov: The Gym and Tattoos


Have you ever witnessed the beauty of a man pealing out of his suit to reveal tattoos on a well-sculpted body?  There is something that catches in your throat.  It throws you off.  He looks like a business man, but underneath he’s a bad boy.  Then all those other thoughts enter your mind.  You wonder other things:-) about him. 

Dmitry Medlov has many sides.  But he can’t keep the body of a Greek sculpture unless he goes to the gym.  So, what does a mob boss do?  He builds one in his home. 

We see that he thinks while he’s in there.  Early in the morning, he’s not sleeping in or eating a fattening breakfast.  He’s in the gym pumping some serious iron.  He’s always been that way too, since his time in the rough prisons in Russia.  (If you haven’t picked up The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov Short Story, pick it up today at www.latrivianelson.info). 

When I developed this part of his character, several images came to mind.  Rough. Soft. Refined.  And Animalistic.  Dmitry is the type who can clearly go into any board room and conduct business, but he can also rip his clothes off and show scars, tattoos and muscles that would make any woman blush. 

Skinny guys have tattoos too.  I know this, but the best guys to look at have plenty of muscle.

Let’s remember that he wasn’t always rich and powerful.  He was a kid from the streets, or as he put it , a rat from the gutter.  Both he and Ivan were huge naturally, but when Dmitry added on pounds and pounds of muscle he became irresistible.

The next time that you’re in the gym, take notice of the guys who are muscular and their choice of tattoo.  I know some guys get names of their girlfriends and moms, children and etc.  But see if you can pick out a tribal tattoo, an elaborate tattoo, something different.

I saw a guy in Miami once with a beautiful tattoo on his back.  He was really, really buff – muscles everywhere.  When I asked him what they meant, he said, “If you have to ask, it’s not your business.”  I agreed, but I still made him buy me a drink:-)

Suits and Swagger


We talked about Dmitry and his jeans-and-beer side.  Now, it’s time to talk about Suits and Swagger.  When Royal first met Dmitry, he was in the restaurant playing the violin alone and wearing a suit.  When he arrived back from a trip to New York, he was wearing a suit.  When he showed up at her door for their first date, he was wearing a very nice suit.  Dmitry is not scared to put a suit on and wear it well.  It speaks to the more sophisticated part of his character. 

A man in a suit is a powerful thing.  Could you imagine James Bond in bib overalls?  Life just wouldn’t be the same.  The suit doesn’t make the man, but it does make him sexy.  It’s the swagger of the man once he puts the suit on.  It screams power, virility, control and yes, even sex.

One of the things you do notice is Dmitry relaxes a little more when he’s in other clothes.  When he’s in his suit, he’s boss.  When he’s in jeans, he’s just Dmitry. 

Have you noticed what a suit can do to a man?  Maybe that’s why you can only dress casually on Friday’s at the firm.  The suits exudes something more highly respected…maybe.

What are your thoughts?

Anatoly Medlov: Silence is A Virtue.


Ladies, I know that I’ve been gone for a while.  I’ve had quite the events going on, but now that things are settled for the moment, I had to get back to you, and how I’ve missed you.  The thing that has been on my mind has been my favorite character, Anatoly.  I’ve been working away everyday on his character development and in order to do so, I’ve had to constantly look at where he came from. 

In Dmitry’s Closet, Anatoly is the silent type.  However, in my opinion, his silence spoke in volumes.  There is something to be said about a man who can “hold his secrets.”  Have you ever met a man who was a chatter box?  You sit down with him and in ten minutes you know his entire life story.  There is nothing exciting about that.  For one thing, he likes to talk about himself.  Secondly, you can bet that half of what he’s telling you (unless he’s Forest Gump) isn’t true.

The only men who should be allowed to tell their life stories are old men and young boys.  Old men don’t have long on this earth and may be able to impart knowledge and wisdom.  Young boys (ten and under) haven’t been here long enough to bore you out of your mind.  Every other age group in between should learn to be conservative.

Our ongoing theme is the undying quest to find the Alpha Male.  Are there really many Alpha Males who are chatter boxes?  I wonder this often.  You meet a man in a bookstore.  He’s tall, beautiful, educated, but if he’s long winded, he’s probably trying to cover up something by talking.  You meet a gorgeous guy at the gym.  He’s muscular, he’s tan, he’s rich and he’s infatuated with his ex-girlfriend, whom he talks about whenever he’s reminded of something.  You meet a great doctor with hand that are strong and firm, but he uses them to talk and hypnotizes you with his long fingers as he describes how he performs each and every small procedure but couldn’t give you a back massage if he had instructions.  I could go on and on.  My girlfriends and I talk all the time at our dinner meetings (which consists of a lot of Jack Daniels and Scotch) and we always lament over the things that scratch men off the Alpha Male List.

What is the Alpha Male List?  It’s a list of undeniable characteristics that only a true Alpha Male has.  It’s fun and ridiculous, but it’s a great conversation topic.  You should try it.  Get your girls together and build your own Alpha Male like a Build-A-Bear. 

Anyhow, all of that is said to say this.  Anatoly is silent because behind his beautiful bright eyes are dark secrets that aren’t meant to be told.  The mysterious nature of his youth is what will propel him to an awesome future in the series. 

Now, quick question to all of you.  What is your ideal Alpha male?  And would you agree that he need be quiet? 

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia

Latrivia Nelson at Republic Coffee


Hello Everyone,

Just wanted to share an awesome video that was done at the best coffee spot in Memphis on July 15th, Republic Coffee.  We had been in the discussion for about two hours before this video was taken, so I have on no make-up and I’m pretty tired.  So, look at your own risk!!!

Have a great day,

E-Book Piracy May Change the Future of RiverHouse Publishing’s Releases


Let me vent for a while, ladies, if you don’t mind.  I spent many months, weeks, days, hours on my work.  So, it pains me to no end when I see that readers purchase my book and then post it on illegal forums, even against 17 U.S.C. § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).  Why a person would want to first pirate another person’s personal work, then pawn if off for free.  Needless to say, I’ve already contacted the FBI and my lawyers.  This upsets me very much and provides to me the understanding of that double-edged sword of technology.  While I have loved the Kindle, Nook and PDF capabilities, I’m not sure that it’s worth being the victim of other people’s inconsiderate and costly behavior. 

What are your thoughts? Have any of you ever experienced this with your own work or have you ever pirated? 

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Latrivia
