“Kresley Cole has a talent for leaving me desperately wanting.” ~Under the Covers

At the end of the first part of The Professional I was left desperately wanting more and with the second part it seems that Kresley Cole has a talent for leaving me desperately wanting. Once again I was furiously pressing the screen on my kindle to try and get another page; I needed to know what was going to happen next. Part 2 has just made me fall more in love with both Natalie and Sevastyan, especially as the tension between them breaks and they take their relationship to a whole new level.

This book has also given me a whole new perspective on saunas, before this I used to think of overweight sweaty men with more hair on their bodies than their head wearing tiny white towels. Now, I can’t wait to find one and bring along my very own Sevastyan, equipped with some hot and cold water and a few lengths of rope. The sex scenes are fantastic in this book, especially when Sevastyan loses control, Kresley Cole can write some raw and raunchy scenes that just leave me gasping for more.

Once again Kresley Cole has written a fantastic book, it was sexy as hell but it is also developing some unforgettable characters and an explosive romance and I can’t wait to read the next one.

About Kresley Cole

Kresley Cole is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the electrifying Immortals After Dark paranormal series and the young adult Arcana Chronicles. She has also written five award-winning historical romances.

Since her first novel was released in 2003, Kresley has published nineteen books with Simon & Schuster and has seen her releases translated into more than eighteen foreign languages. She has traveled over much of the world and draws from those experiences to create her memorable characters and settings. Two of her favorite places to visit include the rain forests of Central America and the Queensland area of Australia.

Cole’s trademark action, sensuality, and humor are exemplified in her popular Immortals After Dark Series, which revolves around the Lore, a secret stratum of hundreds of immortal creatures--ranging from Vampires to Lykae, Furies to Shifters, and Fey to Valkyrie--that each have their strengths, weaknesses, and age old prejudices against the others. Though they secretly live among humans, they constantly war among themselves, which gives her a lot of material.

In 2007, Kresley won the prestigious Romance Writers of America RITA award for best paranormal for her novel A Hunger Like No Other, and in January 2009, she became a #1 New York Times and Publishers Weekly bestseller with her sixth IAD installment, Kiss of a Demon King. In 2010, Kiss of a Demon King earned Kresley her second RITA award. 2011 brought Cole her second #1 NYT bestseller with Dreams of a Dark Warrior.

She lives in Florida with her husband and far too many animals. She spends any free time traveling and enjoys all things related to boats and water.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?

I’ve read a few of Kresley Cole’s books, the review sounds good bit I try not to read serials or cliffhangers until all books are published.
