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...

Elizabeth's Thoughts
***WARNING: There are some scenes in this book that are very explicit and at times, rough and/or forceful. While the sexual acts are consensual, the scenes may not be comfortable for some readers to experience***

A 24-year- old college student, Natalie, is searching for her biological parents. She was adopted from a Russian orphanage and is desperate for answers. As her attempts to hire investigators have failed, a mysterious stranger with a Russian accent walks into her life with an outrageous claim; her father sent him to protect her.

Sevastyan is sent to the Nebraska to watch over his boss’s daughter. When enemies are sent after Natalie, Sevastyan has no choice but to follow orders and bring her back to Russia for protection. After dragging a half-naked Natalie from her home and a haphazard chase through a cornfield, Sevastyan and Natalie are alone on a private jet for the extremely long flight back. What will they do to pass the time?

This book has the hottest, most page-melting, sensually erotic scenes I’ve ever read! The chemistry is beyond explosive between Natalie and her tall, dark and dangerous Russian. I can’t tell you how many times I blushed, fanned myself, or squirmed in my seat while reading this erotically charged story!

The dialog titillated as well as had me laughing out loud on several occasions. I also enjoyed watching Natalie connect to and develop a relationship with her father. Natalie also meets a distant cousin, Filip, who I don’t trust one bit. He uses his killer good looks as a weapon and while Natalie hasn’t seen his true colors yet, I fear the results may be deadly. It is a thrilling tale of danger, intrigue, and seduction in a dog-eat-dog world.

You cannot go wrong with THE PROFESSIONAL. I HIGHLY recommend it to all Kresley Cole fans and anyone who loves a gorgeous Russian man who demands control, in and out of the bedroom…or the jet…or the maid’s closet J

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
