Publisher's Summary

The sharpest ache comes from wanting what you think you can't have....

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited, and unattached since leaving home at 16. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle's sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job - and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she's got it good.

But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better.

Maybe's blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature, and Maybe is meant to be his...even if she doesn't know it. Yet. He can't help himself from wanting to protect and care for her.

But Maybe's fiery independent spirit means pushing back when Alexsei goes too far. Still, he's not afraid to do a little pushing of his own to get what he wants - her in his life, and his bed, for good. Maybe's more intoxicating than all the liquor on his shelf...and he's not afraid to ride the blade's edge to bind her to him.

I love all things Lauren Dane and this one didn't disappoint! The characters in this book were all very interesting and they pulled me in from the beginning. The romance in this story was almost a friends to lovers story because they knew each other, worked together and were very comfortable around each other before they finally came together. Maybe is a very chatty hair dresser with a lot of family baggage. Her sister was probably the most interesting character for me in this book and I can't wait to get to her story because it's going to be good!!! Her past almost made this book feel like I had missed the first book because it was mentioned as if we already knew her story but we didn't. Alexsei is Maybe's boss and a hot protective Russian who's entire family lives next door to Maybe. Now his characters was very likable and everything but his family was great!! I think they are going to make this series a lot of fun!

The narration was really good... THANK GOD! I'm usually disappointed with Harlequin Audio's narration choices for this authors books so I went in with low expectations and was happily wrong. Simone Lewis did a great job on this book, especially the Russian accent!!!!!

I’m loving my new Russian

Maybe (yeah that’s her name) is sassy, smart, funny, and fiercely protective of her sister Rachel. When she decides that her boss needs some of her sassy in his life, the fireworks explode..but can she keep her sadness away from the protective and loyal Russian and still keep him in her life.

Alexsei has decided that after 2 years and one broken engagement, it’s time to make a move on his quirky employee. When they come together it’s hot and he falls for her fast..but can he get her to show him her broken pieces so he can help her glue them back together?

I’m loving this new series. Maybe and Alexsei are so cute together and the antics of his family are funny. I can’t wait to delve into Rachel’s story so we can not only understand what she’s been through, but what the hell her parents are up to.

Lauren never disappoints when she writes about relationships and family dynamics. This small group of Russian Americans will give us an inside look at Russian culture but also remind us that a man taking care of his woman is universal.

Great book, characters, and series. Anxiously waiting for book 2.
