After losing her older brother in a violent robbery, wedding gown designer Bianca Bradshaw refuses to date men with criminal ties. She's never been tempted to cross that line-- until Sergei. The Russian behemoth works as an enforcer for mob boss Nikolai Kalasnikov and fights as his champion in the underground bare-knuckle circuit. Sergei is absolutely the last complication she needs in her life-- but he's the only man who makes her body ache with desire. When he learns some creep is bothering Bianca, Sergei Sakharov vows to protect her at all costs. He's determined to show her that he's worth more as a man than his criminal connections.

this is the first book i've read in the "her russian protector" series. This was probably a good thing because one of the main characters is a Black woman named Bianca (who dosent want to read books where the main character is a refection of themselves?). She owns a dress shop in houston, tx. She is also the bestie of a mob wife which is where she runs into sergei. Sergei thinks Bianca is cute, but she wont have anything to do with him cause he is the muscle for a russian mob boss, and her brother was killed by racist skinheads right in front of her.
Sergei is a determined man and works hard to get what he wants. Will sergeis enforcer for the mob lifestyle be to much for Bianca to handle? How much is sergei willing to change for her?

I liked this book because it solves one of my pet peeves. I hate when books, movies or tv shows are set in a real live place, especially one that i've not only been too, but lived in and none of the folks you expect to see are represented. Houston actually has a very diverse population ( and a sizable russian community) and it was wonderful to see that represented in this book.
The sex scenes weren't too bad either.

I like Bianca as a character. She is a smart self assured business woman who can handle it all. Even though she is an independent woman she learns it nice to have someone who will have your back, not cause you are weak, but because they love you.

I like sergei too, i like how ms rivera make him smart and complicated and caring, which is how he ended up in the mob in the first place.

If you like gangsters with hearts of gold, strong female leads, and really good "action" this is the book for you

This was an awesome read! Sergei adored Bianca. It was great to finally see their story unfold. This one is my favorite so far in the series.
