HOLEY MOLEY!! What a fast paced, addictive book. This is my first Kresley Cole read and I am biting my nails waiting for number 2, The Master and it doesn’t come out until next year. GGGGRRRR! Natalie is an awesome character, with so much spice and attitude. When I first started reading, my first impression was, WOW, love the style and I’m hooked in the first chapter. That’s an amazing feat and I’m going to have to find some more of Ms Cole’s books.
Natalie Porter is a twenty-four year old that is struggling in life. She is working two restaurant jobs and a teaching job just to get by. She was adopted and has always been curious about her biological father. Beginning her search, Natalie finds the cost involved isn’t small. Things are at a standstill when her investigator has stopped responding to her messages. All she knows is that he was getting close to finding her father, then bam, nothing.
Natalie thinks of herself as a manalyst, when she’s out with her friends, she will see a man and is able to size him up on his negative qualities. Until she spots HIM; standing at the bar she sees this giant of a man, all muscle and attitude. Natalie isn’t able to get a read and is instantly attracted to him. With some encouragement from her friends, Natalie walks up to this man and tries to hit on him. The only things she can ascertain is that he has a Russian accent. Without another word he storms out of the bar….
Natalie is in a compromising position in the bathtub when she realises the Russian is standing in the doorway. He demands her to get dressed because they have a plane to catch, but Natalie isn’t following his rules and Sevastyan carries her to his car almost naked.
Arriving in Russia Natalie is determined to get some answers and has walked right into a mafia war. She is in grave danger with assassins hunting her down, being the missing daughter of a mafia boss, she is highly sought after. This also means that if anyone touches her, even intimately, they could be killed, Sevastyan is at risk even though he’s the right-hand man.
Natalie still doesn’t like following rules and tempts Sevastyan every chance she gets. This complicated and mysterious man is the only thing she can think about; other than learning the family business.
Will Sevastyan put his life in danger just to be with Natalie? Will Natalie survive the hunt? What will happen between the mafia families? What about her life back in America?
Absolutely fantastic, amazingly addictive, unique, and exciting and I need the next brother, Maksimilian Sevastyan NOW. Maksim was very interesting and he is somehow more dangerous than The Siberian. Everybody I have told about this book has also loved it. Kresley Cole you are a genius. Of course I highly recommend this book to all erotic readers, it’s a must!
