The Russian Bodyguard by Rie Warren Blog Tour

Danger, Denial, Desire. The Russian Bodyguard by Rie Warren. Dark Mafia Romance.

I am her bodyguard.
I’m her only hope.

I cannot stand this prissy brat who practically throws herself at every guy she meets. Yet I’m tasked with babysitting her. The pakhan’s daughter tests my patience, makes me want to break out in uncontrolled violence, or maybe just throw her down to show her what all her teasing does to a real man.

She’s untouchable. Until a Russian rival mafia comes seeking revenge. I’m about to teach the printsessa a lesson she’ll never forget, and I guarantee she’s the one who will be taking my orders from now on.

Maksim’s chest heaved as he read me the riot act. “You are fucking impossible.”

“And you are the worst man I could ever have been shackled to!”

His hand snapping out, he squeezed my cheeks hard.

I tried not to flinch, but his grip was vise-like.

Maksim lowered his face to mine, his gunmetal irises just this side of demonic. “I really will beat your ass if you ever attempt to go out on your own again.”

“Do it!”

Releasing my face, he yanked me into his unyielding embrace. His mouth crashed over mine with a fury I’d never tasted before.

I struggled, kicking at anything I could reach.

He speared his tongue into my mouth, wildly claiming what he thought was rightfully his. Holding me caged against him, he drove a hand into my hair, angling my neck, trying to conquer me.

I let out a strangled growl then let the rage and arousal explode out of me.

Wrath, lust... I despised him.

Desire, rage... I wanted some part of him.

Maksim grunted when I licked between his lips, drawing me up his body so we collided in all the right ways—for once.

We kissed so ferociously, clawing at each other, practically tearing into one another to get some kind of upper hand out of this pure madness.

And still the heat roared.

We broke apart just as forcibly as we’d clashed together, both of us breathing hard.

“I hate you with every single fiber of my being,” I scathed.

“That makes two of us.” A hard sneer crossed his lips that had just been slanted across mine.

Then, Maksim struck.

He grabbed both sides of my blazer and ripped it open. Buttons popped off, pinging across the room. I looked down at my ruined leather jacket just as he tore if off my back.

Breasts thrust against the corset that remained, I saw him through a haze of red when he slung the jacket aside like it was no more than a piece of rubbish.

I launched back to smack him right across his face, but he captured my wrist in an iron grip.

He towed me inexorably against him again, and all my feral instincts went into meeting his wild kiss.

A loud groan thundered from his chest when I rolled my tongue over his then nipped at his bottom lip. His hands roved from my arms to my ass, and he cranked me right against his undeniable erection, which threw me back into that heady spiral of hate and lust.

His sculpted features came slowly into focus when he drew back.

A filthy grin the likes of which I’d never seen played across his lips that—goddamn him—had felt perfectly voracious against mine. “Shall I tell you what I’ve been thinking about?”

“What?” All the breath caught in my chest, my voice emerging raspingly.

His smirk widened. He paced backward a couple of steps. Without taking his eyes off mine, he removed his tie. With a shift of his strong hands, he unbuttoned his shirt from top to bottom. A shrug of ropey shoulders, and he eased the material from his muscular tattooed torso.

Then his fingers—the ones that had bit into the fleshiness of my ass—dropped to his trousers.

The belt slithered and hissed like a snake when he removed it. He stepped out of his shoes, toed off his socks, went for the closure of his pants.

His voice the same gruff timbre as always, he unzipped, saying, “I have been thinking about my cock in your mouth, Sashenka.”

Please read the previous books in the series. You will not be disappointed, and it'll help you understand these characters and the dynamic relationships.

You know how they say that sometimes hate borders on love? Well, Maksim and Sasha walk that fine line. Maksim has been tasked with watching Sasha for years. He knows his job and knows that if she were his, her sassy mouth wouldn't say half of the things that come out of it. Her sexy outfits would be for his eyes only and he would spank her every chance he could.

Sasha hates having Maksim watching her. She knows he doesn't think much of her, so she uses her sexuality to get what she wants instead. Sasha loves torturing Maksim with her tiny outfits and sassy mouth.

When an old Russian family comes for blood, Sasha and Maksim will find themselves in a situation they never thought possible. You get to see different sides of each character and they are refreshing. I really enjoyed watching their relationship develop and change.

This was a fast-paced story with all of the previous characters and some fun stuff thrown in. It's a great story from start to finish and I hope we get a future book.

The Russian Bodyguard is the third installment in the Krasnov Brothers series. You should read them in the order that the author intended. Not only are the other brothers’ stories worth the read but the build up with these characters starts in the first book and builds from there.

Maksim has been given the task of watching Sasha. He has done so for years but Sasha doesn't make it easy on him. She's bratty, she talks back, and she tries to slip away from him constantly. Maksim deals with her bad behavior but wants to spank her like the child she acts like. She uses her sexuality to get what she wants. Their relationship borders on hate. When Sasha is in danger, Maksim will do whatever he has to to protect her. But spending so much time together sparks a passion they weren't expecting. I love seeing their relationship grow. Their chemistry is chart topping.

I love this fast-paced dangerous world that Rie Warren puts me in. Action and suspense with romance thrown in makes for a perfect read. I can't wait to see what comes next!

This is the third book in this series and I highly recommend you read the others; you do not want to miss a thing in this series. Each brother finds love in a way they least expect.

Maksim is Sasha's bodyguard; he will protect her with his life. But sometimes he wants to spank her for her childish ways. She likes pushing his buttons just to see what he will do.

When a rival comes after the family for revenge, it is Sasha who steps up to protect her family. Can Maksim save her before it is too late?

The fire between Maksim and Sasha is sizzling and will burn, but these two have been dancing around each other for years. They will either combust or be perfect together.

I really enjoyed this book, loved the push and pull between Maksim and Sasha. Their protectiveness over each other and the family was perfect. As with the other books, this one is fast-paced, in-your-face, all mafia and I love mafia stories. I hope you read this series and enjoy it too.
