REVIEW: The Professional by Kresley Cole

The highly anticipated complete novel of The Professional—the first installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s scorching Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?

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…

Adri's Review:

First off thanks to NetGalley for providing us with a copy so that we could write this review.

I have to say that I originally interested in this book because of the blurb. It seemed so interesting, and where it didn't disappoint there were some aspects of it that I didn't enjoy.

Natalie's character is a very strong and she knows how to pursue those things that she wants, but I felt that when it came to Sevastyan she gave in too easily. He is after all a character she meets in a bar and then finds him stalking her in her bathroom. (sorry to me that has creeper factor written all over it). But then again he does sound extremely sexy and alluring. 

There is plenty of fun and sexy times in this book, but I also enjoy that it is full of plot. Now my biggest complaint is the death of one of the characters... it felt slightly cruel on the authors part to unite a father and daughter to just have him die so early in. But I guess that is how the life of a mob boss is.

Happy Reading... Adri
