The sweetest reward comes after the longest wait
Vicktor Orlov took one look at the wary gaze and slow-to-trust personality of the deliciously sexy and fascinating Rachel Dolan and knew he wanted more than just a casual friendship. But as a natural protector, he also knew bossiness and overprotective maneuvering would push her away. HeA??ll use every tool in his easygoing arsenal to convince her to take a chance on them.
RachelA??s flourishing new career as a tattoo artist has brought color back into a life previously damaged by violence. She knows she can trust VicA??itA??s herself sheA??s not sure of. She doesnA??t want to be caged or controlled, protected so much she has no ability to make her own choices. And damn if the man doesnA??t know it.
When Vic finally drops all pretenses of A??just friendsA? and focuses all his careful affection and irresistible seduction on her, Rachel knows sheA??s falling hard for the laid-back pretty-boy Russian sheA??s discovered has a relentlessly steel spine when it comes to her.
And she canA??t resist.

"Narrator Tanya Eby whips up a performance almost good enough to eat in this sexy contemporary romance featuring a Russian hero who runs a neighborhood bakery and a heroine who is taking back her life in the wake of trauma. Viktor Orlaf knows that "just friends" isn't going to cut it anymore between him and tattoo artist Rachel Dolan. But loving her is going to take all the patience and slow-burning seduction in his arsenal to prove that overpowering her is the last thing on his mind. With a cast that includes a large Russian family and a controlling father listeners will love to hate, Eby nails each individual character with perfect pacing, varied inflections, and unique vocal tones, making this title a keeper.
