Publisher's Summary

Refusing to lose her brother to the violent Hermanos street gang, Benny turns to Dimitri, the dead sexy Russian who lives in the apartment above her family's bakery. He's the only man tough enough to get through to Johnny and save him from a life in prison - or worse.

There's nothing Dimitri won't do for Benny, even if it means dealing with her troublemaking brother. He quickly realizes that it's not just Johnny and his thug friends that pose a threat to Benny. A shady real estate developer needs to buy her bakery to secure a multi-million dollar deal and he'll stop at nothing to make her sell.

Threatened from all sides, Benny finds safety in Dimitri's strong arms - and in his bed. Her big, sexy Russian has no intention of ever letting her go - and he'll brave the fires of hell before he lets anyone harm her.

Listener's Note: Dimitri is an incredibly passionate man with a dominant streak - and Benny is only too happy to indulge his need for a little...restraint.

    I love books and love to get lost in the fantasy. I'm always looking for a new good story to bury myself in. :)

    "Very good addition to the series :D"

    4 stars

    This was a very good story. I liked both Benny and Dimitri and was happy to see them get together. Their story was interesting and engaging.

    Benny is the owner of a bakery that belonged to her family. She's lost all of her family except for her brother, Johnny, and she is determined to keep him. The only problem is that Johnny joined a gang and his behavior is going from bad to worse. The situation isn't helped by a greedy developer that's trying to strong arm them in to selling their bakery and Johnny is getting lured by the thought of easy money.

    Dimitri is a Russian immigrant that came to America to find a new life, far away from the war that scarred him (both physically and emotionally). Dimitri runs a security business that provides trained bouncers for clubs and such. Dimitri does very well and has money but he lives in a small apartment above a bakery. He's been living there 6 years and normally would have moved out by now except that he's in love with the owner of the bakery, Benny.

    Benny has been trying to keep the bakery running but when she inherited it from her grandmother it was far in debt and barely still open. She's been doing alright but it doesn't help that Johnny hasn't been helping around the place when he's supposed to be and precious money had to be spent on bail and lawyers for Johnny when his gang activities got him arrested. When the story begins, Benny is trying to get Johnny to help with the bakery but he's unwilling and basically being a jerk and disrespecting his sister. Dimitri comes upon this and gets on Johnny's case for disrespecting his sister and Johnny gets pissy and runs off. The problem comes when Benny realizes that Johnny's been stealing from the business and both her and Dimitri start to worry about just how bad Johnny is getting. Benny has loved Dimitri for years but never thought he'd see her as more than the friends they've been since he moved in so she's kept her silence. She's happy that Dimitri wants to help but doesn't want him to feel like she's asking too much. Dimitri realized about a year ago that he was in love with Benny and he'd do anything to help her.

    Dimitri decides that the danger from Johnny's associations is too risky for Benny and he needs to protect her. Dimitri invites Benny up to his place for dinner so she can talk with him about the issues with the business and with Johnny. While they're talking, Benny imparts the fact that she hasn't dated in a couple years and Dimitri decides that has just changed. Things escalate between them and they have a hot night together. Dimitri quickly realizes that Benny isn't too sure of what he wants from her (which is forever) so he does his best to make her believe he wants her as much as she wants him. She's a little leery at first but Dimitri soon convinces her that she's it for him. Things go from 0 to 60 between them in about 2 seconds (metaphoricly speaking) as they fall in to the relationship that they'd both been wanting for a long time. This is helped along by the action plot because things are constantly hopping and Dimitri has to step up to take care of Benny. Benny mostly lets him do what he needs to do but she's not afraid to give him a piece of her mind when he goes and starts making decisions without her. I thought they worked well together once they finally took the leap. They manage to get past the issues with both the greedy developer and Johnny and end the story starting a very sweet HEA.

    This was a very enjoyable story. I liked both Dimitri and Benny and had no major complaint about either of them. With the history between them, the relationship between Dimitri and Benny fell in to place relatively easily but the action plot was more than enough to keep things interesting. I'm sure I'll read more of this series in the future. I'd recommend this story.

    "THANK U ROXIE FOR GIVING US THESE SMOOTH RUSSIANS"

    Dimitri has secretly loved Bakery owner Benny for years and, without her knowledge, has been helping with her business and with her brother who has joined a street gang. But slowly things start to implode for Benny when a greedy developer starts pressurising her to sell up and her brother gets out of hand.... so who's she going to turn to..... yup her hunky sexy Russian tenant. Dimitri has a security business, a lot of unsavory connections and is very skilled at gang/street warfare and he also can't keep his hands off Benny and Benny is very willing to surrender herself to her tender dirty talking dominant Russian.

    Great listen, very exciting, fast-paced, sexy, romantic, with a hot alpha hero and an interesting cast of secondary characters. It's well-written, clever, has a plot that hooks you right in, there's humor, sex and drama too to add to the mix and the narrator did a great job in brining all together to make a very enjoyable listen.

    Worth a credit? Yes and I'm now going back to get Ivan (book1) so I can hear all the backstory.

    "Perfect narration once again!"

    Once again Pinky Powell makes this story! The story itself was much better than book one. And Pinky brought all the characters to life so well. I can't wait to listen to all books narrated by her. She's pure talent and made for this kind of work!

    "I Want A Russian Protector!"
    Where does Dimitri rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This ranked in the upper half of my audiobook collection.


    What other book might you compare Dimitri to, and why?

    This is part of a series, so Ivan is the most similar.


    What about Pinky Powell’s performance did you like?

    I liked her Russian accent.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me smile!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a cracking short read, if you like the tough, bad-ass, alpha male that turns to a big softie when he finds the right woman and with a little bit if suspense thrown into the mix, this is a good one for you.
