About Roxie Rivera

I'm a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author. When I’m not chasing after my wild preschooler, I like to write super sexy romances and scorching hot erotica. I live in Texas with a husband who could easily snag a job as an extra on History Channel’s new Viking series and a sweet but rowdy four-year-old.

I also have another dirty-book writing alter ego--Lolita Lopez--who writes deliciously steamy tales for Ellora’s Cave, Forever Yours/Grand Central, Mischief/Harper Collins UK, Siren Publishing and Cleis Press.

Review 2023:
I’m really enjoying my reread of these stories in the ‘Her Russian protector’ series. In this story we get to see how Yuri Novakovsky and Yelena Cruz (or Lena like everyone calls her) get together. In the two previous stories you could already feel that there was a big attraction between hem but Lena was ignoring it. But you can’t ignore that kind of chemistry for long, so one night after a big discussion at her work, Lena goes upset to Yuri. One thing leads to another and that night something happens that make Lena give in and that’s the start of their relationship. But it will not be easy, Yuri is a busy billionaire businessman, who’s used to treat everything like a business deal. He doesn’t have any experience with relationships and he makes personal mistakes that hurt Lena. If he wants to keep Lena, he will have to learn quickly how to be a good boyfriend. The fact that Lena has trust issues makes it even harder. Lena for her part will have to trust that Yuri cares deeply for her and will keep his promises and won’t leave her like everyone else. Meanwhile, danger is also surrounding them, it started small but soon things are spiralling out of control. Can Yuri keep Lena safe and free her father from the hands of a dangerous cartel? One thing is sure, Yuri will need all the help he can get.

Yuri and Lena were perfect for each other. Both had a difficult childhood, they grew up in bad neighbourhoods, Yuri in Russian and Lena in Houston, America. So that was something they shared, just like their determination to get out of there by working hard, being stubborn and making smart decisions. Both were intelligent and used their talents in a good way. Yuri as a businessman and Lena as a PR specialist. I loved it that both were honest with each other, Yuri made some mistakes but it was never his intention to hurt Lena and he was always very sorry afterwards. I appreciated it that Lena made it clear that she was upset and hurt but she didn’t make him suffer too long for it. They acted like adults and talked about it. Just like any other rich guy Yuri loved nothing more than to spoil Lena with gifts and little surprises.
Although Lena acted confidently, deep down she was insecure. She couldn’t really understand why a rich, charming playboy like Yuri would fall for someone like her. But she talked about her insecurities and doubts with Yuri. That was another thing that I liked that in this story. A new character in this book was Yuri’s dog Sacha, he was something special and like Yuri, he was very protective of Lena. His behaviour had me smiling a few times.

In this story we learned more about Yuri and Nikolai’s past, about their time in the orphanage in Russian. Other characters that we got to know a little better were Ty Weston and Yuri’s bodyguards Derick, Jake, Vasya and Kelly (who’s also a bouncer for the nightclub Faze).

Again you got both POV’s in the story. There were a few steamy sex scenes in it, nothing as kinky as in Dimitri’s book but the scenes were still very hot. With each book, the stories get longer and longer, more pages to read and to enjoy, that makes me very happy. Although there is fighting and shooting in the story, it’s not a very dark story, perfect for readers who wants to read a mafia series for the first time. I do recommend that you start with the first book.

I’m looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
