Heroine: Natalie Porter – Grad Student, Adopted
Hero: Aleksandr Sevastyan – Fighter, Russian Mafiya





By now, if you’ve read parts two and three, you should be aware that this is erotica. You should also know that Sevastyan’s tastes run towards BDSM, as do Natalie’s. I’m surprised that this is such a surprising development for some, when I saw it coming from the beginning. I saw it coming and I was looking forward to it. If that’s not your thing, then... this serial really won’t be for you. Because this installment is hotter and even more extremely sexual than the previous.

Natalie is growing tired of the secrets. Tired of being closed off from all of Sevastyan’s emotions. Natalie’s beginning to wonder if she’s falling in love with a man who might not be capable of loving her back. After fighting to get the Sevastyan she knew in Russia back, the one with dark needs and desires, she's finally succeeded. But it might be more than she can handle. Or it might be everything she’s dreamed of.

Oh, Sevastyan got his tattooed and ringed fingers wrapped around my heart in this one. So much pain and fear behind those golden eyes of his. Even when his secretiveness was driving me mad, all I wanted was to comfort him. No wonder Natalie was suffering. I'd be impatient too. There was so much lurking inside Sevastyan and I wanted to know it all. Know him.

But it was hard to connect with Sevastyan at times. He was like a lion with a thorn in his paw. Defensive and standoffish, while also managing to be uncontrollably hot between the sheets. He may not let his emotions loose but, when he let's his dominant side free, it is scorching. Kinky to the nth degree. What's behind that glass at the end of part two will have you gasping. And, trust me, it only gets hotter from there.

The Professional: Part 3 is a satisfying and salacious end to Sevastyan and Natalie’s story. Though I will admit to still wanting more. More of that sexy Siberian, please! I might also want more of other characters... Like Maksim. You just know there is a sexy story there.
