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.
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.

Holy HOTNESS Maksim! And even that may be understatement when it comes to The Master. Incendiary may be a better word to describe it because you’ll need more than a freezing cold shower while reading this one. BOB? probably. This is Kresley Cole at her very best and is even better that The Professional IMHO. The Master is beyond sexy, the banter and humor are pure KC, the pace is good and never really drags and,thank the lord, while there is some angst, though not anywhere near as much as in The Professional, it is what I deem an acceptable level to give just the right amount of drama to the story.
I loved Maksim and Cat. The sexual chemistry between them was off the charts from the very beginning and as their story progressed we see that the chemistry extends much farther than the physical and sexual, although that is always something that burns hot between them, and it just shows that they are meant to be together. Separately, I have to say I think I love Maks just a tiny bit more than Aleks, they are both so similar in their “I am the Alpha, you will do as I say” personalities, and both had a lot of darkness in them, but there was something about Maks and his vulnerability that when it came out just had me melting for him, even though I did want to smack him a few times. But then there is Cat and that hot mami stole the show. It takes a lot for me to crush harder on the h of the H/h but Cat did it. She’s vivacious, intelligent, strong, funny, sassy and she owns herself. She doesn’t back down from what she wants, even when Maks was doing his very sexy Alpha dominant thing, Cat owned her sexuality and herself and was very much apart of all that was going on and I loved being in her head and experiencing her risk/reward debates.
While much of the book is focused on Maks and Cat’s relationship, there is the little matter of Cat and her past. I thought it was played out well and didn’t mind that while it was in the forefront of Cat’s mind, it took something of a back seat in the big scheme of things.
We also get to catch up with Aleks and Natalie and be at their wedding and it was wonderful to not only see where they are at but to get to have a little interaction with Aleks and Maks and see how their relationship is progressing. And of course there is Jess. LOVE her. I do hope she gets her own book because she’s just amazing...maybe her and Dmitri? The again maybe not because they may go totally nuclear on each other, especially afterlearning just a little more about what happened to Maks and Dmitri, but if anyone can pull it off it would be KC.
