As a romance lover, these Russian Alphas that Roxie has created tick all my boxes.... they have a sexy accent, they're protective, loyal, loving, tattooed, handsome and, of course, very hot. On top of this Yuri is mega rich but will spend it all for the woman he loves...Lena. Yuri has been crazy for the strong, independent, all business Lena for a long time but the timing was never right then she appeared in his Club one night and all of a sudden the timing was perfect.....how wrong they were.
This was an all action listen with deals going bad, art theft, the Mexican Cartel, a traitor or two, secrets, kidnapping, attempted murder and murder - all while they were trying desperately to fall in love but each one brought their own share of past demons and present day threats. These two had great chemistry, easy playful banter, good heart-to-heart's, passion, romance and some hot times. There's humor too especially from a beast of a dog who proves himself a loveable hero.
Worth a credit? Told from dual POV's by a narrator that was good with some accents but poor with others, great secondary characters and a close bond is shared between Yuri's 'brothers' and Lena's friends from past books as they are all brought in on the action and stand-by each other. Good storyline made this a great listen and very creditworthy and I'm now desperate for Nikolia and Vivian's story next.

First, let me say, these books are fun. Will you take them seriously? No, because it's erotica ladies, come on. But for erotica, they offer you a fun listen. Roxie Rivera has created a delightful romp through Houston that will make you want to listen to the whole series. And you should start with the little snippet that is book 1.
I will admit I hoped for more in this book. You may have noticed I gave it 3 stars. Pinky Powell did a nice job, though I hoped for improvement on the accents. Not bad though. The story however irked me a little.
Yuri is a billionaire... selfmade... and not all from illegal stuff which is nice. He's a guy that got lucky then spun his millions into a huge deal. He's currently obsessed with a pipeline in Europe that will... make him money? That part was fuzzy but he was really into making it happen so let's say it will benefit him greatly.
Leni got on my nerves. It's a great premise - young college girl sets up a blog to talk about the hottest parts of Houston to party, over the years she gains a reputation and eventually makes money from people wanting her to come to clubs. A local celeb. In the meantime she's working on her degree and working for a marketing firm. She merges the two and cleans up a swanky club. Only to be b**chslapped.
What follows is a weird staying of character and a bit of whiney teenage angst that I wouldn't expect from a strong independent woman in her twenties. I found the way their relationship went to be a little awkward and then we through in a Mexican cartel and boom! adventure!
But I'll keep listening. Cause it's fun.
