Book Review 📖

The Master (The Game Maker Series) book 2 by Kresley Cole


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.

Except her.

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.

My Review….. 

Catarina “cat” is on the run, she has been for a few years. Her husband wants her dead, and will not stop until she is. She never settles in one place for too long. Getting low paid to stay off his radar. But Cat longs to finish her degree off. (And she’s finding a way to do it) 

Maksimiliam “Maksim” is the second eldest Stevastyan brother, Aleksander is the eldest, Dimitri is the youngest. He is a master at manipulating people, what he wants he always gets. He doesn’t date, he orders an escort, (always the same type) does what he needs to do, then sends them on their way. And tonight he sees something that could change is life forever …..

Cat has been “talked” into being an escort for her glamour boss. Ivanna wants her to pick up a client and just be nice to him. It sounds easy. It sounds too good to be true. And when Cat gets to the hotel, she sees her client, all bets are off, she is drawn to this man, but it can only be for the night ….. 

She is NOT what Maksim ordered, but her sass and smile has him intrigued. Her way of looking at life has him reevaluating his own life, and his family (he is still trying to reconnect with Aleksander, and trying to keep his baby brother from disconnecting from life) 

The book then goes on a discovery for both Maksim and Cat. He needs her in his life, but all the incorrect assumptions his has about Cat have him wary of her, and to be honest, Cat doesn’t want to trust him (the last man she trusted is trying to kill her) 

I didn’t like it as much as the first book. But the connection between the two main characters was very entertaining. The drama between them had me caught in their web till the end. 

So will Cat evade her killer husband? Will she trust Maksim enough to tell him? Or will his distrust of her have her running for the hills? 

I’m looking forward to reading Dimitri’s book.
