From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn-haired woman bartending at her uncle's pub in Ireland, he'd been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said than done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on 24-hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.
Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother's family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.
There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.

A Story That Will Make You Wet Your Panties
I never read the print edition but the audio edition left me so hot that I had no choice but to get the other two audio editions that are out in this series. Would I go back and read the print version? No, I have my enjoyment and will just listen to this again to get my fix for this book.
The narrations. By having this version told with these two narrators, the reader gets more of what the characters are feeling. They had me feeling almost like a voyeur - which if they had been in the room while I was listening, they probably would have enjoyed it.
What I loved about Edo De Angelis' performance is that he brought the Russian characters to life. He made me wish that I had an easier time in learning languages. I never realized how sexy the language is. I'm a fan of his.
What I loved about Stephanie Wyles performance is she's the perfect compliment to the male narrator. The reader will have no trouble believing that the Jessica Venture character has come to life.
It's like listening to a movie without actually seeing the pictures but with listening to these two narrators telling the story I have no trouble playing the story out in my mind.
For me, it wasn't one particular moment but I could tell how much these two characters come to care so much for each other. The part that stirred the most emotion in me was when Jessica got some very painful news and became very afraid as well as angry.
This is one audiobook that I plan on listening to more than once. Especially once I finish listening to the other two books of this series that I have. This was a great way to find a new favorite author. Those that are vanilla readers or don't like the BDSM scene should stay away because this book puts a lot of the porn movies to shame - they should take lessons.
Alex & Jessica are made for each other...
