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…

 

1thoughtsThe story picks up right where Part I left off. Literally. The ending of Part I was Sevastyan and Natalie riding their horses to a sauna house to get out of the storm and Part II starts with them in the sauna. I did have to go back to the first book and read the ending again to get my bearings.

Whereas the last book we were on the edge of our seats wondering what the Russian Mafiya would be like and what that meant for Natalia, this one is more relationship building with Natalie and Sevastyan. She likes her time in Russia getting to know her father. Things aren’t so scary for her except for the fact that if anything were to happen between her and Sevastyan they’d be expected to get married. Which Sevastyan is all on board for but Natalia… not so much.

This was a great follow up to Part I. I don’t want to say too much but there’s also suspense in this one when betrayal within causes Natalie and Sevastyan to go into hiding. Plus we get more of those steamy scenes between the two. This is a great erotica story with a lot of backbone to it and I for one cannot wait until part 3 comes out.

4 Thoughts on “Review: The Professional: Part II by Kresley Cole

  1. Arg I so can’t wait until they’re all out. I’ve been dying to read these and dang all the good reviews make it so tempting to dive in now instead of waiting. lol

    Love that quote 🙂

    • I just finished the third one and I HIGHLY suggest reading them all in one sitting. Don’t get me wrong, they were great but it’s like pausing a movie mid scene and then pressing play 2 weeks later. It literally stops and picks up right where the other book left off.

  2. Oh Kristin I enjoyed this I think so much more than part 1. My heart ached for him in the shower seen before she joined him. I did not see the betrayal coming. I still need to get my copy for #3. I am waiting to this weekend because I know if I get it now I will want to read ASAP. This installments I want to read in a sitting or two. I know I am going to be busy this week so will wait to I know I have the time to dive into it and not come up for air till it is finish.
