Rated: 5 Stars



A need colder than Siberian winter meets an attitude hotter than the Florida sun in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s sultry new Game Maker novel.

Everyone fears the Master…
Rich, irresistible politician/Mafiya boss Maksimilian Sevastyan prefers tall, obedient blondes to fulfill his…complicated desires. That is, until the icy Russian encounters a disobedient brunette whose exquisite little body threatens his legendary restraint.

Except her.
Catarina Marín was a well-off young wife until her world fell apart. Now she’s hiding out, forced to start working as an escort in Miami. Her very first client is beyond gorgeous, but when he tells her what he plans to do to her, Cat almost walks out of the door.

If pleasure is a game, play to win.
After their mind-blowing encounter burns out of control, the lovers crave more. If they escape the deadly threats surrounding them, can Maksim overcome his past–to offer Cat his future? Only then will she tempt him with what he really wants: her, all tied up with a bow.

This Master is just incredible! I love everything about it! I love it even more than I loved The Professional which is saying something because I raved about the first book and told everyone they had to read it to experience the hotness of The Siberian. Maksim is even hotter! He’s just the perfect mix of sexiness, intelligence and alpha maleness! Cat was so much fun and doesn’t let Maksim get away with anything. The plot has some twists and turns that kept me on edge and flipping the pages. Kresley Cole is a master storyteller and once again out did herself. The Master is scorching hot and makes the reader experience a full range of emotions. I laughed and I cried. Not many stories can make me do that. Go get it! The Professional was on my list of favorites in 2014 and The Master will be on my list in 2015.

Q. Will this book be released as a single installment or serials?

A. We revisit the characters from book 1, but this is a *stand alone* book
Q. Will it have a lot of BDSM in it?
A. Not as much as in The Professional because poor Maksim keeps losing his control wink emoticon [as an aside, I LOVED writing the interactions between Maks and Cat]
