The Master (The Game Maker #2) by Kresley Cole (@GalleryBooks)

Rich, irresistible politician/Mafiya 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 MarĂ­n 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.

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.

*pants* Cole...totally had me swooning <hard> over a mob boss and an escort as the two hooked up, flipped each other's worlds upside down and had a battle of wills all while having oodles (and omg I finally got to use oodles) of toe-curlingly delicious sex. Oh yes. Cole will have you fanning yourself and begging for more!

So. The quick of it is that Maksim is an escort hobbyist but his current, erm, date, had to call in sick and Cat ended up taking her place. She's desperate for money so she can escape her past and one night in Maksim's bed...will get her well on her way to a new life in another city. But he might just decide to keep her instead. Ahhh. Yes. Lots of sexy angsty deliciousness abounds! (did I mention that already? lol)

Domineering and alpha! pretty much sums up Maksim. Sexy as all fuck would be another one. Hot damn. Yeah. He would make your panties melt. Well. If he let you wear them. O.o And make you want to pinch him something fierce too. He's disgustingly rich, a mob boss, used to getting everything he wants when he wants it and has absolutely no clue what what to do with a woman he's actually falling for and that might be able to break down the rock solid walls he's built around himself to protect himself from a painful youth.

And Cat. She was a strong one that's in a terrible spot running from a murderer and with Maksim--even if she is his prisoner and play toy--at least she's safe, living well and earning enough money to start over. She's a survivor and a fighter. Sassy, smart, caring and just easy to like. I so sympathized with her frustrations and horny girl impulses where Maksim was concerned. lol
"You could teach me Spanish."

Okay, now he was just playing with me. "Sure. Say callate la boca."

He repeated the phrase. "What does that mean?"

"Shut up."

"You're teaching me how to tell you to shut up?"

"Por Dios, no. You must understand when I tell you that."
They had great chemistry and were so one of those fiery couples that could be having a sweet sexy moment then figuratively they were coming to blows before they even realized. They bounced all over the place as their individual pasts and secrets came between them. They both had some hardcore trust issues--rightfully so (their pasts were both seriously fucked up) and pushed each other. Not in a bad way overall though. They both really needed someone to force them out of their comfort zones both sexually and emotionally.
"They ride Western here, so I'll put you in my saddle."

"Where are we headed? To an igloo? To the North Pole? To a place where St. Bernards serve brandy?"

He laughed, looking an arm around my waist. "Not far. I'll give you a taste, or else your thighs will be sore all weekend."

I quirked my brows. "Don't hold back on my account. I've been riding you like Seabiscuit at least twice a day for over a week."

The stable hand, a bearded older man, chose that moment to appear.

He cleared his throat, even more red-faced than I was. 
And the heat?...scorching! Yeah these two were on fire! There's some very light BDSM involved and a tiny little bit of kink but nothing over the top. I would have loved a little more personally but yeah what was there totally had me fanning myself and squirming. I'd totally sign up--in a hot second-- for my own Russian mobster if he was anything like Maksim. Yum!

Cole knocked it out of the park once again. No question. She flawlessly crossed genre boundaries and proved once again that whatever she sets her hand to... it will be truly amazing and irresistible. Sexy, fun, heat up the pages delicious. If you haven't started this series or her Immortals After Dark series you really must. They're not to be missed.
