I read this book without reading the first in this series Her Ruthless Russian. The story can be read as a stand-alone, though it does involve the Karev brothers and solving the murder of their father, Sergey. In this story, we have Maxim, who is a suspect in his father's death, especially after they had a heated argument and then he later dies. FBI agent Savannah Casillero is on the case to find out who murdered the Russian Mob Boss. Maxim is no longer in the mob business and is trying to lead a regular life, but that proves impossible. Savannah hoping to infiltrate the mob scene demands that Maxim introduces her as his girlfriend to see if they can find out any more information on the murder, while he tries to get back get in. I have to admit I was lost as to what exactly happened at one point in the story, we know that someone is definitely trying to frame Maxim and then in the next part they, Savannah and another Agent, named Tom, go to his place of business to arrest him? However, no one questions, the fact that Savannah who was playing his pretend girlfriend, now is an undercover FBI agent? Then in another part after he is arrested, the epilogue, all of a sudden, he is cleared of all charges as long as he agrees to be an FBI consultant? It just did not seem in sync to me and I felt it jumped around a bit. The chemistry is there between the two, the one sex scene they have, was in a bathroom and left much to be desired in my opinion. All in all, not a bad read, could have been better. Thanks for the opportunity
I was looking for more from Maxim's story it was probably too short to do justice to Maxim. Maxim is an ex enforcer for the mob. The story is He got out but he was dragged back into the life. He teams up with FBI agent Savannah to help find the person responsible for his father's murder. Yes, they fall in love, but you have to continue to the next book to find the murderer.
This was an enjoyable easy read mafia love story.
Overall, I felt the writing flowed, the connection/chemistry between the main couple felt realistic, but it seemed little to no progress was made in this continuing unfolding murder drama. Sure, there are a couple of scenes where they return to a few of Maxim’s mafioso haunts/stomping ground and he interacts with a few mob characters, but they did not go deep undercover as I had expected. Instead it was more like they were just seen together, which ultimately did result in bullets and blame being fired at Maxim once again. This time around though Savannah has come to know him and has his back.
At only 102 pages, this storyline was more about these two unlikely forces meeting and pretending to be a couple only to find themselves becoming one. With only a few very smexy scenes, one particularly graphic one, the steaminess certainly did not hijack the plot. Their chemistry certainly did take center stage though.
With an ending that barely felt like a HEA for now, I was disappointed the epilogue didn’t move this couple’s relationship further along. Here’s to hoping the third book, My Rentless Russian, will tie up all the loose ends, reveal the killer, and give us an intriguing romantic tale for the last Karev brother, Dmitry.
Title: Her Rogue Russian, Series: Karev Brothers (Book 2), Author: Leslie North, Pages: 102, short novella, stand-alone but part of an unfolding drama, only a few steamy scenes - one is VERY graphic, some mob violence, FBI agent heroine, former mobster working together to figure out who killed his mob father, no cheating, no OW/OM drama, now a good guy former mob hero, no love triangle.

Savannah Casillero is an FBI agent who's also trying to catch Maxim's father's killer. She's also trying to see who's smuggling jewels into the country illegally.
Can these two work together and fight their attraction?
I enjoyed this second book in the series. It was a quick read and I'm looking forward to the third book.
