Five Stars

Nikolai Cover

Length: 327 pages        Published: 5 December 2013


After a brush with death as a juvenile delinquent, Vivian swore she’d never stray across that line again-but there’s just one problem with her plan to stay on the right side of the law. She’s completely, irrevocably and unabashedly in love with Nikolai, the Russian mob boss who saves her life.

Inextricably bonded to sweet Vivian since that tragic night, Nikolai knows she is the only thing that keeps him from sliding deeper into a world of crime and violence, a mobbed-up life he can’t escape no matter how hard he tries.

After Vivian is ripped from his arms in a brazen attack, Nikolai vows he’ll do anything to get her back but he quickly understands that a simple rescue isn’t enough. His only chance to protect Vivian is to drag her deeper into his shadowy world-and bind her to him forever.

Because their tangled pasts are about to collide and the shockwave threatens to bring Houston’s criminal underbelly to its knees…

Review ***SPOILERS***

The fourth book in the Her Russian Protector Series is awesome. In my last review for Yuri I remember saying how I didn’t feel there was enough suspense, well Roxie really brought the suspense to this series with Nikolai!

The action starts right from the start when Vivian is kidnapped and forced to insure such horrid treatment! Poor Nikolai is beaten within an inch of his life trying to protect her. From then on, there are clues littered about for the reader to try and put together to determine the players in this game and their roles.

I’ve been looking forward to reading Nikolai from the very start of the series, he’s always played a background character that I have found fascinating. When I finally sat down to read it I was worried that I would be disappointed but I really wasn’t! We get to see a fun side to Nikolai which I loved ( in fact seeing any emotion on him feels good)

Again there is great sex. Although I was slightly peeved at waiting until a day after their wedding (I guess I’m a book slut)

The gory finale really was the icing on top of the cake!

I’m excited to read more of Nikolai and Vivian!
