Ultimate Book Boyfriend: Sevastyan

Share this!


Welcome to what used to be called just Dom’s Dungeon in our BURNING UP JULY month!  Since last year we’ve added a few extra categories in looking for the hottest heroes of the year, and this year we’ve asked some of our favorite bloggers to come and tell us why they think the hero they like should win.

So we are starting off with the Ultimate Book Boyfriend, because really, it doesn’t get much better than these three heroes.  For the next three days you will meet the nominees and you will be able to cast your votes starting on the third day.  Voting will run until the end of the month.  And because we are nice like that, check out the end of this post to see the giveaway we are running month long during the competition.


My pick for book boyfriend is Aleksei “The Siberian” Sevastyan from the The Professional by Kresley Cole. He is the ALPHA male; a tattooed, ex-fighter, current Russian hit man, loyal to a fault, with a dominate streak a mile wide. He decides that Natalie Porter is HIS and nothing not even Natalie or her mob boss father can dissuade him. He will protect what is his against all odds, even thru a hail storm of bullets, anything for his Natalia. He has dark secrets shrouding his past which makes him all that more mysterious and deadly. There is no mistaking the lure of this sexy Dom.

Meet Your Next Book Boyfriend – Sevastyan


What UTC is saying about Sevastyan:

“Sevastyan is one of my new book boyfriends but he is definitely here to stay, with his delicious Russian accent that says naughty naughty things, I would not mine being the sub to his Dom.” ~ Suzanne (UTC)

Probably the hottest hero we all read here at Under the Covers in a while.  He’s made most of our Top something or Best of lists lately.  Here’s a sample on what we’ve been saying about him:

From our Best of 2013: Angela/Suzanne | Francesca/Annie

Suzanne named THE PROFESSIONAL Best Sex Scene in 2013:

“We are only meant to pick one scene, but I couldn’t do it, The Professional by Kresley Cole has two delicious sex scenes that got me all hot and bothered. One on a plane involving the hottest 69 I have ever read and the other in a closet…all this and they haven’t actually had sex yet. I think I might spontaneously combust if it gets much sexier, but I am fully prepared to read the next in the serial to find out.”

Angela named THE PROFESSIONAL Best Sex Scene in 2013:

“This is a hard one for me because I know that I’ve read several scenes the were very hot. However, my most recent read that had a very hot scene and is still totally ingrained in my brain is Kresley Cole’s The Professional. Though this closet scene is not realistic for in real life, Ms. Cole definitely made me rethink it. LOL Ms. Cole’s build up of the sexual tension in this book was just phenomenal.”

Francesca named THE PROFESSIONAL one of her Best Sex Scenes in 2013:

“Then I have to (I’m obligated to, morally) mention THE PROFESSIONAL by Kresley Cole, Part I.  I can honestly say that every single sex scene in that book can leave you whimpering and scrambling for some relief.  But there is one particular scene in a closet that is highly worth mentioning!”

He’s also made all four of our Ultimate Book Boyfriend of 2013 lists!
That’s quite impressive!



The highly anticipated complete novel of The Professional—the first installment in #1 New York Times bestselling author Kresley Cole’s scorching Game Maker series, an erotica collection that has readers asking: How hot is too hot?

He makes the rules…

Mafiya enforcer Aleksei “The Siberian” Sevastyan’s loyalty to his boss knows no bounds, until he meets the boss’s long-lost daughter, a curvy, feisty redhead who haunts his mind and heats his blood like no other. Ordered to protect her, Aleksei will do anything to possess her as well—on his own wicked terms.

Rules are made to be broken…

Grad student Natalie Porter had barely recovered from her first sight of the dark and breathtaking Sevastyan before the professional enforcer whisks her away to Russia, thrusting her into a world of extreme wealth and wanton pleasures. Every day under his protection leads her deeper under his masterful spell.

Are you ready to play?

Yet all is not as it seems. To remove Natalie from an enemy’s reach, Sevastyan spirits her into hiding. From an opulent palace in Russia to the decadent playgrounds of the mega-wealthy in Paris, the two lovers will discover that even their darkest—and most forbidden—fantasies can come true…

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.



The giveaway will start with voting in 2 more days.  And we will give away winners choice of a book with one of the three heroes we are featuring in this competition for Book Boyfriend. Stay tuned!

Has that ever happened before, where you all like the same book boyfriend?




Oh God. Sevastyan.
Be still my twisted little heart. I agree. The closet scene was… fabulous.

Ultimate Book boyfriend for sure.

Jen B.

Yeah, he is a really good choice for book boyfriend. I don’t have many but he is definitely on my list. My favorite sex scene was when he took her to the underground club. Holy hot tamales!

Amy R

Well damn, haven’t read these because they were serials. Need to see if it’s released as a whole yet.

Laurie G.

Yes, it is together as one book now.

Sophia Rose

I’ve had this series on my list since you guys introduced it last year and just haven’t grabbed it up yet. Nice persuasive post, Amanda!

Alyssa H.

Sevastyan is, without a doubt, one of the HOTTEST male book characters ever written! Love, love, love his character and the pure unbridled lust/heat/extreme alpha that he brings to the page 🙂


Totally agree and that’s why I’m voting for him!
