Publisher's Summary

While clawing her way out of Houston's worst neighborhood, Lena vowed to never let any man have power over her. After a lifetime of broken promises from her criminal father and a mother who abandoned her, Lena believes that love makes you vulnerable. She's never been tempted to test that belief... until Yuri.

Sexy as sin and with a dark reputation, Russian billionaire Yuri Novakovsky survived a miserable childhood of poverty and neglect to ascend the pinnacle of success. He enjoys the perks of his massive wealth without much thought to the consequences... until Lena.

When Lena's father and cousin blunder into an international art theft operation, Yuri seizes his chance to be her protector. But when past misdeeds catch up with him and threaten Lena's safety, Yuri puts her love and trust in him to the test.

He'll show Lena he can be the man she needs - a man she can trust and depend upon - one sensual, wicked kiss at a time.

    "YOU JUST CAN'T GO WRONG WITH THIS SERIES"

    As a romance lover, these Russian Alphas that Roxie has created tick all my boxes.... they have a sexy accent, they're protective, loyal, loving, tattooed, handsome and, of course, very hot. On top of this Yuri is mega rich but will spend it all for the woman he loves...Lena. Yuri has been crazy for the strong, independent, all business Lena for a long time but the timing was never right then she appeared in his Club one night and all of a sudden the timing was perfect.....how wrong they were.

    This was an all action listen with deals going bad, art theft, the Mexican Cartel, a traitor or two, secrets, kidnapping, attempted murder and murder - all while they were trying desperately to fall in love but each one brought their own share of past demons and present day threats. These two had great chemistry, easy playful banter, good heart-to-heart's, passion, romance and some hot times. There's humor too especially from a beast of a dog who proves himself a loveable hero.

    Worth a credit? Told from dual POV's by a narrator that was good with some accents but poor with others, great secondary characters and a close bond is shared between Yuri's 'brothers' and Lena's friends from past books as they are all brought in on the action and stand-by each other. Good storyline made this a great listen and very creditworthy and I'm now desperate for Nikolia and Vivian's story next.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    Story
    "Interesting 3rd book in a fun Russian Mafia series"

    First, let me say, these books are fun. Will you take them seriously? No, because it's erotica ladies, come on. But for erotica, they offer you a fun listen. Roxie Rivera has created a delightful romp through Houston that will make you want to listen to the whole series. And you should start with the little snippet that is book 1.

    I will admit I hoped for more in this book. You may have noticed I gave it 3 stars. Pinky Powell did a nice job, though I hoped for improvement on the accents. Not bad though. The story however irked me a little.

    Yuri is a billionaire... selfmade... and not all from illegal stuff which is nice. He's a guy that got lucky then spun his millions into a huge deal. He's currently obsessed with a pipeline in Europe that will... make him money? That part was fuzzy but he was really into making it happen so let's say it will benefit him greatly.

    Leni got on my nerves. It's a great premise - young college girl sets up a blog to talk about the hottest parts of Houston to party, over the years she gains a reputation and eventually makes money from people wanting her to come to clubs. A local celeb. In the meantime she's working on her degree and working for a marketing firm. She merges the two and cleans up a swanky club. Only to be b**chslapped.

    What follows is a weird staying of character and a bit of whiney teenage angst that I wouldn't expect from a strong independent woman in her twenties. I found the way their relationship went to be a little awkward and then we through in a Mexican cartel and boom! adventure!

    But I'll keep listening. Cause it's fun.

    "ok story. terrible narration."

    the story was ok but not great. it was pretty unbelievable. the female narration was fine but when she did the Russian accent for the male lead it was just sooooo wrong. hes supposed to be a sexy male leading man instead he came across sounding like a sweet old russian man.. definitely doesnt go well with the hot and steamy love scenes it just made it seem weird.

    "Not bad! Fun quicky"

    I like the stories, they are not too deep or complicated, but good quickies. Pet peeve though, I'm Hispanic and it drives me crazy the stereotypical Mexican accent and the fact that the Spanish speaker pronounce the silent "H" In hermano and she pronounces Guhz-man instead of gooz-mawn. But that's me being particular

    "I loved every second"
    Any additional comments?

    This series is quickly becoming one of my favorites. Yuri so far is my favorite book out of the three I have read / listened to.  Also the issues I had in the previous two books with Pinky Powell wasn't present in Yuri at all!<br/><br/>The ladies in this stories are just so real! Lena could be a girl I grew up with, along with the other three friends (minus the crime).  I found her so relatable and likeable it's easy to sink into the story.  Pinky did an excellent job bringing her to life.<br/><br/>Yuri, what can you say about Yuri. Billionaire Russian, gorgeous, well hung, generous lover and all around great guy.  What's not to love.  Only one question. Where can I get one?<br/><br/>This story had such a mix of mystery, romance, action and drama.  I loved every second! I'm moving on to Nikolai next, I can't wait!...Sara

    "Unexpected love"

    yuri is a standalone book, yet part of a series with characters that are friends. Older man loves younger woman. The narrator did a great job getting some of the Russian accents.

    Story
    "3rd of series extremely young girl w/ OLDER man!"

    Third story to series. Older man in his late 30's "watched" over young girl till she is legal. She is a artist & a virgin. He met her when she was 11 yr. and now that she is 21 and stuff with her family and his criminal past helps him get what he wants. The get married.. There might be more stories from characters in this series. I'm sure they will all be young latino girls with older Russian men and dealing with Russian mob situations. The accents from the narration are great. If you are a middle aged read/buyer that likes to keep reading about young naive girls hooking up with OLDER worldly men instead of people of equal age falling in love. Then this is a story for you.
