Erotic Romance
A madman with a shadowed past. . .
In Las Vegas, Sin City, Dmitri Sevastyan finds her, Victoria Valentine--sexy, vulnerable, and in need of a protector. Obsession takes root deep inside him. Despite a history tainted with violation and betrayal, he will stop at nothing to possess her.

A grifter with nothing to lose . . .

Descended from a long line of con artists, twenty-four-year-old Victoria, a.k.a. Vice, needs the score of a lifetime to keep her loved ones safe. She sets her sights on gorgeous and rich Dmitri Sevastyan. Even as the irresistible Russian toys with her body and mind, he tempts her heart.

Love is the ultimate wild card.

When Vice and her associates maneuver Dmitri into a hasty Vegas wedding, he refuses to protect himself with a prenup, trusting her with all that he has. But can she trust him? As secrets unfold, the newlyweds share days of doubts and nights of the wickedest pleasures. Yet once Vice discovers her husband's past, will she stay to fight for her marriage or cut her losses and run?

I don't know how/where Mrs. Cole gets her research for these books, but damn do I want to know! Talk about fanning yourself with the pages. I can't count how many times my inner sex-starved self was yelling "down girl." Someone grab the spray bottle stat because I need a cold shower to bring this all back down!

The Player once again reminds us all that we need any of the following. 1. A billionaire who may or may not be Russian. 2. A sex life. 3. A sex life with a billionaire and really who cares if he's Russian! Hot mama was this yet another hit to lock away with all my other Cole tales. There is just no other writer on the shelf today who hits this kind of dynamic caliber for me. That's really saying a lot, since there are so many great frelin writers! But when it comes to hot and heavy well planned tales, for this gal...yeah, I'm sorry, but Kresley is one talented author and has it on lock.

I sadly didn't get all the con lingo and by the end, still felt like a total noob, but the story moves along with or without you and you kinda just figure out what it all means by the end. It would have been nice for a tad more explanation, since I'm not out picking pockets or running cons. But that said, everything else was great. A fun twist at the end, which I did see coming but them's the breaks. I love this series, the three brothers, hot kinky sex and of course their ladies.

My girl boner is hard for Cole and let's just all leave it at that.
