The Professional: Part 2 (The Game Maker #1.2) by Kresley Cole

TheProfessional2He 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.

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1This was another short and sweet read. For some reason Part 2 seemed to move a little faster than Part 1. They were both 120 pages. Maybe because I was already familiar with the characters. I’m not sure. What I do know is that everything is taken up a notch in  The Professional: Part 2.

A lot happened in this novella that really moved the story along. There was action, danger, character revelations and plenty of heat. It took up exactly where Part 1 left off, which is understandable since Part 1 ended…. it just ended… and Part 2 pretty much did the same thing. I’m not really sure how I feel about these abrupt endings, but I’ll continue reading. I have no choice. I HAVE to know what happens next. *sigh* All I have to say is that it’s a good thing that there isn’t much time between the release of these novellas. Part 3 is scheduled for January 20. Let the count down begin!
