Review: The Player, by Kresley Cole

The Player (The Game Maker, #3)The Player by Kresley Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kresley Cole’s books are a guilty pleasure of mine. I love her over the top Alpha-males and their monosyllabic dialogues. No other author can make a guy grunting words like, “mine” and “come” sound so damn appealing! Yet, time and time again, I fall for these cavemen.

Dmitri Sevastyan is no exception to the rule. He’s possessive, dominating and completely irresistible. At the same time, there is something vulnerable and sensitive about him that lures you in.

When Victoria Valentine, aka Vice, sets her sights on Dmitri, you know that heartache is in store for the Russian billionaire. Victoria is a grifter and plans to swindle millions from Dmitri in the biggest con of her life. However, as her feelings for Dmitri grow, this job becomes far tougher than Victoria had ever bargained for.

After conning the wrong person, Victoria and her family are scrambling to repay a debt. If they can’t pay off the kingpin that beat them at their own game, their father will pay with his life. That is a price that none of them are willing to pay.

The more time Victoria spends with Dmitri, the harder she falls for this wounded man. The guilt of her actions eats her alive and only worsens when she marries him. Everything goes as planned, so she should feel relieved.

However, there is far more to the situation than Victoria ever knew. When the other shoe drops, I was shocked…and impressed. This story had a huge twist that I never saw coming.

Like every book I’ve read by Ms. Cole, this was an incredibly hot one! I listened to the Audible version and there’s something to be said for the narrator’s sexy Russian accent. It was like listening to an erotic story read by the Count, from Sesame Street. I was grinning from ear to ear during my morning commute.

If you’re in the mood for pure, smutty goodness, I highly recommend this book. Ms. Cole never fails to deliver.
