Publisher's Summary

Refusing to lose her brother to the violent Hermanos street gang, Benny turns to Dimitri, the dead sexy Russian who lives in the apartment above her family's bakery. He's the only man tough enough to get through to Johnny and save him from a life in prison - or worse.
There's nothing Dimitri won't do for Benny, even if it means dealing with her troublemaking brother. He quickly realizes that it's not just Johnny and his thug friends that pose a threat to Benny. A shady real estate developer needs to buy her bakery to secure a multi-million dollar deal and he'll stop at nothing to make her sell.
Threatened from all sides, Benny finds safety in Dimitri's strong arms - and in his bed. Her big, sexy Russian has no intention of ever letting her go - and he'll brave the fires of hell before he lets anyone harm her.
Listener's Note: Dimitri is an incredibly passionate man with a dominant streak - and Benny is only too happy to indulge his need for a little...restraint.

THANK U ROXIE FOR GIVING US THESE SMOOTH RUSSIANS

Dimitri has secretly loved Bakery owner Benny for years and, without her knowledge, has been helping with her business and with her brother who has joined a street gang. But slowly things start to implode for Benny when a greedy developer starts pressurising her to sell up and her brother gets out of hand.... so who's she going to turn to..... yup her hunky sexy Russian tenant. Dimitri has a security business, a lot of unsavory connections and is very skilled at gang/street warfare and he also can't keep his hands off Benny and Benny is very willing to surrender herself to her tender dirty talking dominant Russian.

Great listen, very exciting, fast-paced, sexy, romantic, with a hot alpha hero and an interesting cast of secondary characters. It's well-written, clever, has a plot that hooks you right in, there's humor, sex and drama too to add to the mix and the narrator did a great job in brining all together to make a very enjoyable listen.

Worth a credit? Yes and I'm now going back to get Ivan (book1) so I can hear all the backstory.

Hot Russian and curvy Spanish baker jump right in

How much to I LOVE that Rivera has not only provided hunky guys, but that they love curvy girls. I'm not a big gal but I appreciate the real woman experience. Dimitri loves every thing about Benny, enough to stay in his starter apartment above her bakery instead of building that large house he can afford.

This relationship starts off between two people who have known each other for a while, each pining after the other secretly until he finally makes his move. Benita's brother gets a cameo in the first book but becomes and absolute nuisance in this one and made me want to throttle him on multiple occasions.

I enjoyed this book except for one thing. ONE BIG THING.

I might rant a little. Scroll away if you don't want to hear it. :)

And I'm going to put in the spoiler tag even though it's obvious after the first chapter or two.

I adore Rivera's obvious promotion of safe sex. It's something that is mentioned throughout all of her books. She slips up here tho. After using condoms for their first foray into the hot steamy scenes you'll love, They wake up together and go at it, only after it's over realizing they forgot one important barrier.

It's the treatment of the aftermath I can't ignore. They even DISCUSS IT. Oops, we forgot the condom. Are you on the pill? No...

And that's it. I kept waiting for the whole, well that's how babies are made maybe we should do something... or not... what do you think? But nothing happened. They went about their days. So I thought, maybe we just wouldn't talk about it and she would do the whole day-after thing or he would think about what a future with her and a baby would be like. Again, they just had unprotected full blown sexy time and just... nothing.

So at the end, when she's throwing up... she's SO CONFUSED. And I was very irritated at this point. What could it be? Food poisoning? Hmm... what ever could be the problem???

Benita seems like an intelligent-ish girl. Dimitri has a few brain cells up there. I can't understand how this is a weird shock. You had unprotected sex, ignored it after, and aren't even the least bit suspicious she could be pregnant?

End rant. Yanked a star for it. Okay maybe two. Could have been a 5 star book.

Kudos to Pinky Powell for handling all these touch accents. She's one to watch.
