From #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole comes The Game Makers; a scorching new erotica series about a young woman desperate to uncover the mysteries of her past and the hitman bound to protect her.

Expected publication:  December 16, 2013

3.5 - 4 Stars

This is my first time reading anything from Kresley Cole. I wasn't sure what to expect, but...DAYUM...Part 1 left me INTRIGUED and wanting MORE!!!

Although I had a few issues, after I reached the half-way mark I could not put down this story! There is major insta-attraction going on right in the beginning. What can I say about Sevastyan? He is...

Dark, Dangerous, Domineering!!!

We learn that he works for Natalie's father as a bodyguard/enforcer/professional hit man. Perhaps the only thing I didn't like is that he calls Natalie “pet”. As much as Sevastyan is as attracted to and can't help fool around a bit with Natalie, his mind is going Nyet, Nyet Nyet!!! His loyalty ultimately belongs to her father. She should be off limits, right? Well, Natalie is a determined one, and she's got her sights on Sevastyan to be her first. Oh, the tension is high!

I have to admit that I almost gave up on this novella. The majority of the erotic scenes are in the first half, and I wondered if the entire thing was going to be a string of erotic scenes, but the second half is where all the grand opulence comes to play. The reader is transported to chilly Russia, and we get a little more back history of some of the characters. There's a threat simmering in the background, but really nothing big happens in the suspense department. Part 1 really only lays down a foundation for the rest of the series and whets your appetite. There is a big CLIFFHANGER!!! Grrrr! WHY?!?! I want more Sevastyan! Hurry up, Part 2!
