Vasilije Markovic is the prince of the Serbian mafia and one of the most powerful men in Chicago. His smile may be razor sharp, but he’s crueler than the devil.
I’m playing a dangerous game and betting my life I’m going to win. I pretend to be his pawn. I do as he says and move where he tells me, letting him think he’s in control as I position myself for revenge.
Every turn brings us closer. His grin doesn’t seem as evil when we’re alone. Behind closed doors, I welcome his unrelenting and vicious personality. He’s confessed all his secrets, but I’m holding one back and it’s a game changer.
If I survive the board, this pawn turns into a queen. I become the most powerful player and send all the other pieces running. To get what I want, I must make sacrifices, but am I willing to draw the line at him?

Ever since I read (and LOVED) SORDID last year I have been dying to read Vasilije’s book, and this one did not disappoint. Perhaps not as risqué as book one TORRID it more than held it’s own in the smokin’ hot category.
I found it to be well written and fairly well paced. The sex scenes were hot and plentiful. No OW/OM drama. It had some interesting secondary characters as well. I’d LOVE to see a book featuring Konstantine. It also had a small cameo of Luka and Addison (the couple from book one). Both main characters were likable. Oksana was strong and had a plan. Got to admire a girl with a plan. Vasilije was… complicated. I liked him for the most part, but sometimes he did cross over the line for me. Mostly when he was humiliating Oksana. I am not a huge fan of humiliation in my romance books, so those few times he went there left a bad taste in my mouth. But most of the time he was an incredibly sexy anti-hero.
As much as I enjoyed it overall, I did feel that it was maybe a TAD on the too long side. There is a lot of sex but the whole actual point of the story doesn’t kick into gear until around 75% in and then we move at lightning pace until the end. I would have preferred to have gotten to the revelation sooner and had more story devoted to plotting and planning. That said this one still get two thumbs up from yours truly.
