One-night stand takes on a whole new meaning in this latest installment in the series as a stewardess who likes the finer things in life finds herself drawn to a sexy Russian who sweeps her off her feet in a whirlwind connection that looks to be heading towards HEA until fate steps in. Samantha's still reeling from a past relationship that's left her doubting love, but she's more than willing to spend a few hours indulging in the drool-worthy hockey player with a charming Russian accent. At first she's happy with their night of debauchery, but when she's offered more she grabs on to it with both hands. Samantha's a strong-willed and likable heroine unafraid of saying what she wants which leads to numerous decadent encounters that left me parched. Though she has fears over the L word she willingly puts her heart on the line which leads to heartache and near-death that ultimately shows her the true meaning of love.
Vadmir's a delicious hero, loyal and caring to those he calls his. He showed a bit of dominance when it came to Samantha's safety which had me cheering and was one of many subtle ways he expressed his love for her. From the first moment they meet theirs is a connection that crackles as he's immediately drawn to Samantha, charming her in and out of the bedroom and doing everything he can to stretch their one-night stand into something longer. Seeing him with his family in Russia is charming too and shows him as a sweet and gentle soul and it's an enjoyable juxtaposition when he unleashes his naughty side. Vadmir's immensely appealing with his broken English and loving comments, his loyalty equally as endearing as he proclaims himself a one-woman man. From my first glimpse of him to my last I proudly add him to my list of book boyfriends for being so sweet and sexy!
This was an enjoyable read from the first page to the last as it nicely balanced erotic encounters with heartwarming familial interactions. Samantha and Vadmir are electric together whether in or out of the bedroom with scorching yet playful encounters that took up quite a bit of the narrative. The middle part of this story takes readers to exotic Russia in a loving postcard that had me enjoying the ride and this couple's carefree romance. Add in exhilarating hockey scenes and it all makes for an entertaining journey to HEA that was slightly marred by an overly dramatic ending that ultimately brought the couple back together. Along with a likable main couple readers get a glimpse of the rocky romance between Samantha's friend and Vadmir's teammate that wraps up in a short story included with this book. On a whole, fans of erotic romances will find this a decadently delightful read and a reason to learn a bit of Russian for the dirty talk that Vadmir eloquently speaks that left me breathless!
I enjoyed Samantha’s character. She reminded me of Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) from Sex and the City. She likes her designer clothes. She seems put-together and classy. She enjoys sex and gets what she wants. I like Vadmir. He is a good son and brother. I appreciate that he takes care of his family. He is very generous. I found it amusing how he kept getting his slang wrong, and Samantha kept correcting him. Samantha and Vadmir have hot chemistry. They are a fun couple. They get along great and complement one another.
I enjoyed the plot. I thought it was clever how Samantha’s and Vadmir’s one-night-stand turned into more. I loved the Russian aspect of the story. My parents were both born in Hungary. A lot of the culture is similar, and I found myself relating. The story had some interesting twists and complications. Russian Heat is an enjoyable read. It had a good ending. I also, liked the bonus Hot Ice short story, Rookie Rules.
Vadmir is Russian and has a sexy Russian accent. He is plays for the Orlando Vipers and is a nice, down to earth guy. There is a lot chemistry zinging between Vadmir and Samantha from the moment they meet. They can't keep their hands off of each other and their steamy one night stand turns into more. I liked both Samantha and Vadmir. When they meet they are only looking for a good time but everything seems to click between them. They get along well, have a passionate relationship and always have fun together. I enjoyed the characters and this sexy story.
I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book for Cocktails and Books.
Russian Heat is Book Seven in Lily Harlem's Hot Ice Series. What can I say but we get to fall in love with Orlando Viper Vadmir Arefyev.
Samanth Headington is a International Flight Attendant, living the single life, enjoying her friends, wearing her designer clothes, no serious commitments but when she meets Vadmir things begin to change for the better.
When Vadmir & Samantha meet the chemistry is instant and the way these two burn up the pages you can't help cheer them on as a couple.
We see the relationship between them grow, we also see the admiration Vadmir has for his family but also for Samantha. The couple will go through some ups and downs but you just hope they can find there way to that HEA.
I have to say that I have loved this series since book one and with each book the stories of the couples hooked me in more and more but waiting for this one took a little longer but it most definitely was worth the wait and I hope we get to meet some more of the Viper men.
