Publisher's Summary

Former Russian mobster Maxim Karev is a man with something to prove. His father's been murdered and even his own brother thinks he's guilty. To clear his name, Maxim has to return to the organization he left behind. He likes to work alone, but this time an FBI agent leaves him little choice - either she goes in undercover with him, or Maxim can rot in jail. One thing's for sure - he's not going down for a crime he didn't commit. If playing with the beautiful agent is what it takes to prove his innocence, Maxim is prepared to go the distance.

FBI agent Savannah Casillero never backs down. She already lost her partner on this case, and now she's more determined than ever to find Sergey Karev's killer. With the Mafia's former head of security under her thumb, she finally has a way inside - as Maxim's girlfriend. Controlling the lone wolf may be a bit of challenge, but Savannah's confident she can handle it. The six-and-a-half-foot Mafia man is certainly not her type, but she'll do more than play along to make it believable.

They're willing to work together to track down a killer, but when the ruse becomes a little too real, will Maxim and Savannah give in to temptation or hold fast to their original obligations?

Book 2

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maxim Karev walked away from his family and the Russian mob and never had any plans on going back. . Savannah is an FBI agent who is tasked with working with Maxim to get back into the mob and help find out who killed his father, as Maxim's girlfriend. Good follow up book in the series.

Love Maxim!

Her Rogue Russian is book 2 of the series, and Maxim is brought front and center. He is the suspect for his father's murder but solicited by the FBI for help to find the real culprit. Going undercover was never so sexy! FBI agent Savannah Casillero goes undercover with Maxim as his girlfriend, wreaking havoc with Maxim in both mind and spirit! These two have infinite chemistry and see all kinds of action and trouble. Leslie North has a way of writing to include action packed suspense with hot romance in her novellas always keeping me entertained.

North has picked the best narrator for this series..DC Cole. The man reads this story so well you can feel the heat between Maxim and Savannah and the suspense of the mob keeping them on their toes. Cannot wait to hear what he is going to do with Dmitry's in book 3!

An appetizer for the main course.

Having read the ebook, I thought there was no way that the audio version could live up to the action of the written word. D.C. Cole surprised me. The narrative proved to be the icing on an already delicious treat. An appetizer for the main course. The thrills were more spine tingling and the danger and heat were amped up a notch. Nothing compares to the written words, but the audio added a realistic suspense to the equation.

He got out for his sanity. Will he go back to clear his name? Max is a good man. It may be hard to tell but behind the shady mafia background lies a man who wants to be a better man. A murdered father and a target on your back is no way to atone for said sins. In a world where one wrong move can be your last, Max is quickly running out of options. Enter Savannah, a woman with a plan. She needs answers, Max wants to clear his name and this partnership could be their undoing. If they don't end up dead. Her Russian Rogue ping pongs between adrenaline fodder, sexual fantasy and witty dialogue and dominates them all. The Karev Brothers are lethal in more ways than one.

Her Rogue Russian

Any additional comments?

The brothers are still trying to find out who killed their father. This time Savannah (an FBI agent) decides to play Maxim's girlfriend. It seems the FBI is just as interested in who committed the murder as well. And she likes to move fast on convincing everyone she is his other half. The story moves quickly and is quite interesting. Other than a scene near the end when something goes down she doubts him when their should be no doubt, the story was really fun. Nice job on the narration.

Suspenseful, Sexy Romance!

I loved this second book in the Karev Brothers series! We met Maxim in the first book as the brother who got away from the 'family business'. His father was murdered in the first book and we are still trying to find out who killed him. Maxim is blackmailed by sexy FBI agent Savannah Casillero. They want Maxim to pretend to be her lover and introduce her into the organization. As they face more and more danger, they must learn to trust each other. I loved both Maxim and Savannah. She was so strong yet vulnerable, making her the perfect woman for Maxim and boy did the sparks fly! Narrator, DC Cole, was fantastic! His inflections and voice changes were perfect and his Russian accent was captivating. I was lost in this world and the story was over way too soon, I can't wait for book 3!

Awesome Listen!!!

I really enjoy this series by Leslie North and think that D.C. Cole is the perfect narrator for this series. This is a standalone book and its own story, but the murderer of his father (Sergei) is not yet revealed, just like it was not in the first book (Her Ruthless Russian). I had read the e-book before listening to this book and think both are great, but D.C. Cole is able to add so much to the chemistry between Maxim and Savannah. He does great conveying the suspense and conflicting emotions (duty vs. desires). My review is not a synopsis of the book and I try not to give away spoilers. I do have an idea who murdered Sergei and will have to find out if I am right in the next book (Her Relentless Russian). I think this book is worth listening to again! I definitely hope that D.C. Cole continues to perform more books by Leslie North, as his voice is oh so good. I requested a review copy of this audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I had purchased the e-book prior to listening to the book, and find the audiobooks add so much more with great performances by talented narrators.

Love this writing/narration collaboration

This would have been a complete 5 star read for me if the male characters voice had been Russian. That being said, Leslie N. and DC. Cole are a well matched mix. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The Russian Mafia suddenly seems appealing

The book makes the Russian mafia seem like it's crawling in hot men, of course the crime aspect still isn't appealing but...

Loved the character dynamic with control passing back and forth between Maxim and Savannah, and the chemistry... hot enough to light a fire. Great supporting cast of characters too although I disliked the implications that the FBI would make Maxim take the fall for something they don't have proof he did. I like to think they're more honest than that.

I haven't read book one and I do feel like there were undertone that I missed because of this, and this book definitely has spoilers for things that happen in book one so I recommend reading them in order.

As always, D. C.Cole did a fabulous job of the narration, excellent character voices and a delivery that drew me in and wouldn't let me stop listening.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and/or narrator and/or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Unconventional way to find a date

I enjoyed listening to D. C. Cole read this story. His wonderful raspy voice sounded perfect for this story. I've never read or listened to any other books in this series, but it was fairly easy to pick up what was going on and still enjoy the story. Maxim and Savannah's relationship may be a bit unconventional, but that makes it even better. I love it when women dominate in a male driven world and it's even better when she tames the big bad ex-mafia man. All around this was a great enjoyable read.
