I am a big fan of this series and I can say that this story does not disappoint. In this book readers get the beginning of Alexandr and Jessica’s story. Right off the bat we know that their story will be told in two books. We get to see how and why these two meet in this first installment.
So much happens to Alexandr and Jessica in this book alone. The two must make some hard choices as they try to figure out just where their hearts lay. We learn what has made them who they are today. Love can come along when you least expect it to and it is up to you to grab it. Will Alexandr and Jessica try for their happy ever after? I am eagerly awaiting the second half of their story to find out.
I truly enjoyed seeing the back stories for these two and some glimpses into the other characters stories and I cannot wait to see Alexandr and Jessica’s present day story. I was instantly pulled into this book right from the start. Jessica is a strong woman who goes through so much yet she still stands strong. Alexandr is one tough man who hides away his heart, forever the player never daring to change things and get hurt but that all changes when he meets Jessica. I loved seeing the softer side of him with Jessica. The sparks ignite between these two and they are hot together. You can only hope that these two will get together and fight for their happy ever after.

From the moment Alexandr Novikov met the young auburn haired woman bartending at her uncle’s pub in Ireland, he’d been fascinated by her delicate beauty and fiery spirit. Unfortunately, he is in no position to offer her the kind of safe, normal life she deserves so he attempts to put her from his mind for her own good. Something easier said then done when a deal is struck between the Novikov Bratva and the Irish Cleary Gang, an arrangement that includes Alex and his men being on twenty-four hour bodyguard duty with the object of his forbidden desires.
Jessica Venture came to Dublin to spend some time bonding with her birth mother’s family, a connection she desperately needs after losing her adoptive parents within a year of each other back in the States. The last thing she expected was to fall in love with a handsome, mysterious, and sometimes scary man who was well known for his sexual appetite, but rejected her attempts to seduce him.
There are outside forces that will do anything to keep them apart, and Jessica will have to make a desperate choice that will change their lives forever.
Warning: There is light bondage, domestic discipline, spanking, and a F/F scene that is a voyeuristic Doms delight.
Author’s Note: This is part One of Two for Alex and Jessica’s story. In Alexandr’s Cherished Submissive we get a look into the past and the events that shaped Alex and Jessica into the people they are today. Part Two, Alexandr’s Reluctant Submissive, is present day on, and the expected release date is early Fall 2015.
