A need colder than Siberian winter meets an attitude hotter than the Florida sun in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s sultry new Game Maker novel.
Everyone fears the Master...
Rich, irresistible politician/Mafya boss Maksimilian Sevastyan prefers tall, obedient blondes to fulfill his... complicated desires. That is, until the icy Russian encounters a disobedient brunette whose exquisite little body threatens his legendary restraint.
Catarina Marín was a well-off young wife until her world fell apart. Now she’s hiding out, forced to start working as an escort in Miami. Her very first client is beyond gorgeous, but when he tells her what he plans to do to her, Cat almost walks out of the door.
If pleasure is a game, play to win.
After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past—to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.
I'm a huge Kresley Cole fan and I love her Immortals After Dark series as well as Book One in The Game Maker series. After reading about the sexy Siberian in THE PROFESSIONAL, I was looking forward to his brother, Max.
The book started out with explosive chemistry and mind-blowing and extremely graphic—and super-HOT—sex scenes! Max and Cat scorched the pages with their antagonistic sensuality and quick-witted smartass one-liners. I was also looking forward to the storyline but there ended up being more sex, more sex...and MORE sex. I mean don't get me wrong, I like sex as much as the next person but after a while I wanted to turn the hose on these two!
Kresley Cole definitely kicked up the steamy level in her writing but I was a little disappointed that Max and Cat’s sexual relationship eclipsed so much of the storyline. Despite that fact, it won't deter me from reading Kresley in the future. I just may not continue this series. Buuuuuuut, I probably will because Kresley Cole can write her ass off and I would read her grocery list...if she'd let me J
