Book review: The Professional: Part 2 (The Game Maker #1.2) by Kresley Cole
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes The Professional—the second scorching installment in her Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?
He makes the rules...
Mafiya enforcer Aleksandr "The Siberian" Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, tantalizing redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Sevastyan will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.
Rules are made to be broken...
PhD student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the breathtakingly gorgeous Sevastyan before the professional hit man whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. With every day she spends under his protection, she falls 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..
This is part two of three parts and obviously picks up where part one left off. Have you ever read a book where there was a WOW factor for you in the first chapter? Yeah well this is what this book has been doing for me. It's excitement, excitement and more excitement and then abject horror when you realize you are at the end of the part of the book that's being presented. I have seen other people say they have said out loud something like Oh my god nooo! This happened to me too so I can relate. Now i am awaiting part three. Each part isn't overly long but what you get is written to keep your attention and draw you in. The characterization is exceptional and the plot is intriguing and i can't figure out where the author is going with the story yet but i know i want to follow. As a bit of a recap part one takes place in the US where Savastyan goes to get Natalie and bring her to her birth father who she has been looking for. In part two they move to Russia and then Natalie and Sevastyan end up on the run when something horrible happens. Sevastyan is trying to protect Natalie from anyone who would harm her including himself... but he has also awakened her sexually and that's something she tries to hold on to and to him as she is trying to adapt to what her life has become and is still evolving. Amazing work from Kresley Cole. Looking forward to more.
