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…


Are you looking for a book that sets your panties and body on fire? Look no further, Sevastyan and Natalya are a carnal aphrodisiac!

I thoroughly enjoyed this quick, erotic, and uncomplicated read! I was almost deterred by the ratings; however, after reading the reviews, I took the book at face value and jumped in with low expectations. I love it when a book I thought was going to be a huge disappointment pleasantly surprises me. I love it even more when I find myself devouring the book and indulging in the sensuality of the characters. 

I will be very honest though, The Professional is one of those stories where the character and story development is not unique and the author tends to bend reality quite a bit. Combine that with their intense chemistry and erotic, filthy scenes this book totally worked for me! The Professional was exactly the type of read I needed.

FYI—this book contains BDSM, please do not buy this book if this book is not for you. It would not be fair to the author if you leave her/him a bad review because it is not your type of thing.

Thank you, Gallery Books and NetGalley, for the opportunity to read a complimentary copy of The Professional in exchange for my honest opinion.
