He makes the rules…
Mafiya enforcer Aleksei “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss knows no bounds, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, feisty redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Aleksei will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.
Rules are made to be broken…
Grad student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the dark and breathtaking Sevastyan before the professional enforcer whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. Every day under his protection leads her deeper under his masterful spell.
Are you ready to play?
Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Sevastyan spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, the two lovers will discover that even their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies can come true…
I’ve loved Kresley Cole in just about every genre I’ve read by her. I was excited to try out her erotic romance. This story is interesting, it’s obvious that Sevastyan and Natalie are attracted to each other and at times it’s even obvious that Sevastyan loves her and we know Natalie loves him, even if he won’t open up.
It’s a story of both Natalie’s sexual journey, and Sevastyan’s journey back to a healthy emotional place, he needs to learn to open up and he to let Natalie support him during his journey, the way he supports and opens up the world of sexual pleasure for her.
Ms. Cole really nailed it with some emotions, I cried and even laughed during this book, I also found myself just as frustrated and annoyed as Natalie with Sevastyan. This story was told in first person which I think adds to our connection with Sevastyan but I also feel like it did him a bit of a disservice, because we don’t know what he’s doing or thinking. I knew he had to love her, even if he couldn’t express it, but we didn’t know because Natalie didn’t.
I do recommend this one! I look forward to the others in the series, I’m also really glad I picked it up as a complete novel and not as a serial, because I got to just enjoy the whole story in one sitting.
I received a copy from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
