From number-one New York Times best-selling author Kresley Cole comes The Professional: Part 2 - the second scorching installment in her Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has listeners asking: How hot is too hot?
He makes the rules….
Mafia enforcer Aleksandr "The Siberian" Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss is unwavering, until he meets the boss’ 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.…

Kresley Cole Erotica
I read all three parts in ebook format before listening to Part 2 and enjoyed the overall story, but I would only recommend The Professional to fans of erotica. Reading some of these reviews, I get the feeling that it wasn't clear that The Professional is an erotica book, rather than straight-up romance (think X-rated vs. R-rated). It probably doesn't help that Audible categorized Part 1 as "Fiction > Contemporary" rather than "Romance > Erotica".
I would have released all three parts as one audiobook. Part 2 covers chapters 18-33 of the story, but it doesn't hold up as a stand-alone story (which I don't believe it was meant to, anyway).
Yes, I would. She did a great job as Natalie and with American accents. Her Russian accent is decent as well, but I would have enjoyed it more if she dialed back on her Russian accents a bit. I didn't find them very sexy and it distracted from the story. She did a good job overall though.
If Fifty Shades of Grey can be made into a movie, why not The Professional? It's a much better story than Fifty Shades, anyway. (All three parts, that is...not just Part 2 on its own.)
Even though I've read Part 3 in ebook format already, I'm still looking forward to Part 3 in audiobook format, and I'm definitely looking forward to other books in this new series (The Game Maker) in the future. Fans of Kresley Cole, keep in mind that Part 2 covers chapters 18-33 of the book (Part 1 covers chapters 1-17 and Part 3 covers chapters 34-44 and epilogue), AND this is _erotica_ with lots of BDSM and other XXX-rated naughtiness. Not for the faint of heart!
