Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive by Ann Mayburn

Having believed for five years that his wife and daughter are dead, Alexandr Novikov’s world changes forever when he discovers not only are they alive, but the vile person who tore his family apart was none other than his father, Jorg. Determined to make up for lost time, Alex sets about winning the hearts and trust of his wife and daughter, and healing the emotional damage done to Jessica by their forced separation. Easier said than done when jealousy rears its ugly head, and Jessica struggles to deal with all the women Alex was intimate with after her supposed death.

Jessica has prayed for a chance to reunite with Alex, to be the family they were meant to be, to reclaim and rebuild their relationship. Those prayers are finally answered, but she quickly realizes her husband still sees her as the naive twenty-year-old girl she used to be, the one who was content to let him run the show. Jessica’s grown up during their difficult time apart, and she’s no longer content being a piece of arm candy for her powerful husband. If he’s going to bring her back into the deadly world of the Russian mafia, Alex needs to realize that she’s strong enough to be his partner in name and in truth. Only as equals will they find courage enough to face the days ahead.

Especially since Jorg isn’t done meddling with their lives…and his latest actions will have deadly consequences for generations to come.

Warning: This book contains a rather kinky Bratva lord who likes to give his woman all the pleasure she can handle, with the help of his friends. It includes anal, F/F play, spanking, domestic discipline, and an M/F/F/M/F/M/F/M scene that'll make you squirm.

Author’s Note: This is part TWO of Alex and Jessica's story. Part ONE, Alexandr's Cherished Submissive, should be read first for the most enjoyment.

OMG, I just love this whole series. This is the second part of Alex and Jessica’s story; you have to read both parts. This book had me on the edge of my seat the whole time. I love the intensity of the relationship between Alex and Jessica. All the men are so big and alpha and so loveable even though they are so rough on the outside. I can’t wait to see who is in the next book. This book had everything and if you love this series you will love this book as well. I can’t do this book justice with my review because I am not good with words but man, it was hot and was worth the wait.

Characters: Well written
Sex: Oh yeah!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: Mafia/Erotic/Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Do heed the advice of the blurb and read the first of this two part story before you read this book – and if you read it a while ago – reread it first, because let's face it this is convoluted stuff, and getting back into it slowly will reduce your enjoyment of the whole. Even better would be to read it from the first book in the series – but I know, who has time to do that! I can't wait to hide away in a corner and read them all through in one go.

We get thrown straight in where the last book left off and enter a roller-coaster ride of highs and lows. As things 'settle down' a little there is just about time to draw breath and enjoy their reunion, before things get tense and exciting again. There are some absolutely delightful scenes, some very, very hot ones, and some where one's mind is completely overwhelmed with trying to figure out just how that all fitted together – both jealous and extremely turned on. I care far too much for most of the cast, not just because they are all fictitious, but because lots of them are violent criminals!

Very excited to see what we are offered next ... so I do hope you are busy plotting Ms. Mayburn!

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.
