Genre: Contemporary Romance
SYNOPSIS: (From Goodreads)
As an avtoritet for the most powerful crime syndicate in New Orleans, Kir Vasilek doesn’t act without purpose, doesn’t speak without thought and never, ever loses his cool. The lives of his brothers, his family, depend on it. But then Cassie McClintock strolls back into his life, and staying cool is next to impossible. Cassie was the one who got away—and Kir is willing to break all his own rules to keep it from happening ever again.
It’s one thing to report on the Russian mafia; it’s quite another to sleep with one of them, especially one as dangerous, and as sinfully sexy, as Kir Vasilek. Even though the information he once provided helped make her career—and the memory of his touch still keeps her up at night—Cassie knows too much about his world to go down that path.
But when Kir reaches out for help after a rival family comes for one of his own, Cassie doesn’t want to say no, either to investigating a gruesome murder or to the heat that pulls her right back into his arms…and his heart. Taming Kir—and helping to save the family she’s come to call her own—is not the story she thought she’d write, but it’s the one she’s determined will get a happy ending.

I was rather excited to sign up for this book when Harlequin emailed me about it. It seemed to me that it was a suspense/mystery/romance book. I haven’t read many of those because I tend to like just the straight up romances. However, a few months ago I read a mystery/romance book and really enjoyed reading it so I figured why not. I was excited to read it.
Cassie is a reporter. She had a in with Kir a Russian who has ties to the mafia, she thinks. While working with Kir she get romantically involved. She decides that she needs to cut ties so she does. However she wasn’t prepared to get back in contact with him. When she does all bets are off this time and she is in for a wild ride. To be honest up front. I was not a super fan of this book. I mean it was good and was pretty steamy but I was not a fan of the mafia, mystery, suspense sections. I wanted to like it. I mean it didn’t really affect my star rating of the book. I still gave it 4 stars.
Cassie spoke to me on a level. The whole trying to please her family. Her parents are both smart and so is her brother and here she went to school and became a reporter then at the end she decided to become a photographer. She lived her whole life trying to please her parents to no avail it would seem. She did have the support and love of her Aunt Frieda. I know what its like to live in the shadow of another family member. While it may not have been that for real, that is how I grew up feeling. My brother is smart and went to a prestegious college (Notre Dame) while I never finished Community College. My parents always supported me no matter what but I still always felt second best. With that being said I can relate to how Cassie’s family issues. I will defienely be reading some of the other books in this series.
