Dmitri is the youngest of the Svastyyan brothers with more baggage and demons of his own than either Max or Aleks. Victoria "Vice" Valentine is a con artist who's family has Dmitri in their sights. Scam him for millions to make a payoff to a drug cartel they owe money to. All bets are off when Vice's sister fails to entice the billionaire so it's up to Vice to run the con. Dmitri is instantly attracted to Vice and she to him as the game of cat and mouse starts. Red flags galore are popping up everywhere as the relationship begins between the two of them and vice isn't sure whether she is playing him or he is playing her. A shocking proposal, the line between fiction and fantasy, and choosing your family or the man you are starting to love makes for a great twisty story. ( )

I f you liked the other books in this series, you should like this one. It's pretty ovbious early in on the "twist", but it's pretty good for the series. The best part of it is that there are not outside drama going on and the story revolves around the H/h so all the struggles come from that dynamic. The H is OTT in love and OTT rich...the generic crossed signals (I am afraid to tell the truth because he will hate me vs. I know you have a secret but that's ok cuz I'll still understand and love you vs. I can't trust you not to still love me dispite the secret, etc....) it kind of gets to the point where its obvious to the reader that it's time to fess up, but the h keeps holding back. That got a bit old.


Otherwise it was a sexy read compariable to all the others that Kresly puts out. ( )

I am absolutely delighted in this story of Dmitri and Victoria (Vice). It is steamy and fast moving. Erotic and funny. Serious and playful. A fantastic romance. Love done 'Grifter' style with a Russian twist. Whatever it takes, Dmitri will have his Vice!
Towards the middle you KNOW Dmitri has turned the game on Vice, but you aren't quite sure how, when or why. You keep waiting, just like Vice, for the storm to hit. When it finally does, you are flabbergasted to just how deep The Player has made his moves. Dmitri is the Maestro. A true 'Game Maker' is motion.
Kresley Cole Rocks! You are my #1 favorite author. I can't wait to see what comes out of your imagination and talent next!!

I’m a litttleeee obsessed with this series.

An overall 5/5 for sure! Every book compiled together is everything I want and desire and adore in romance/erotica. Individually - there are certainly things that I want more of in each book.

The Professional : This one definitely had my ideal ratio of romance and sex. And the love wasn’t overly gushy or annoying, it was obsessive and super passionate, and that’s exactly what i WANT. I loved Natalie and liked Aleks just fine; he’s probably my runner up for favorite Sev Brother

The Master: TONS of hot sex, but I didn’t find Maxim very compelling. him and Lucia obviously had great chemistry, but I wasn’t overwhelmed by their love or desire. and i definitely preferred Natalie and Aleks’ sex to theirs. This book definitely had wayyy more sex to romance content and it honestly just felt a bit gratuitous to me. (This coming from someone who typically doesn’t mind gratuitous sex. And really, I generally WANT to read a book with more sex than cheesy romance.)

The Player: I. LOVE. Dmitri. love love love love. I’m SO drawn to how obsessive he is, and how lost he is without Victoria. Whilst Vice is probably -while I’m forcing myself to choose between all of the MC’s here - my least favorite heroine, I can’t help but adore his adoration for her. I know, I know, he crossed a lot of lines to get her to be his; but still I squeal. Not ENOUGH sex in this one!!! The romance was absolutely just right, but I definitely think there should’ve been one or two more grand sex scenes. I mean really, there was maybe? Three or four? And that’s counting the ones at the beginning which didn’t actually include sex. Aleks and Natalie had so much incredible sex, I feel cheated that I didn’t receive the same with Dmitri and Victoria. How can you give me a man with immortal-like beauty AND a tortured soul AND a pierced cock and not give me that sweet, sweet Paris Treatment?!?!? I meeaaaaaan come on Kresley Cole!!!! I NEED that kinky Paris treatment!!!


All in all - A D O R E. So, I gotta lump all the books together and give them a huge 5/5. What lacked in some were GREATLY made up for in others, so really I can’t complain about anything. I’m CHEESING. Maybe I’ll give IAD another shot, if this is any proof of what could lie ahead in that series. ( )
