Both Vasilije and Oksana's POVs are represented to highlight their character development and the mafia related plot that brought them together in the first place. Vasilije is confident, authoritative and unforgiving, and I always enjoy reading about male characters like him, finding out what it takes to get them to crack or to fold. He may be biding his time and following the rules for now, but he was meant to be an leader and he may have found a worthy yin to his yang with Oksana. Torrid is an engaging read about two emotionally detached individuals with their own dark secrets and agendas, but discover that they make an unstoppable team plus more when paired together. Sordid is still my favorite between the two stories, but this one did not disappoint and fingers crossed that maybe there's more in the future with other characters (like Konstantine).
The worlds that Ms. Sloane creates are a combination of a dark criminal organized underworld and in "Sordid", the world of academia. In Torrid, Oksana's world of light comes from her ability to compose and play piano. The two brothers from each book are a study in contrasts. Luka from "Sordid" is serious, measured and controlled. His passion while beautiful in its art and exercised in control can burn unchecked and in one defining moment that was a loss of control, he unites his fate with a woman he has desired and wanted for years. He does not embrace the underworld life of crime in which his family is entrenched. Addison is literally "perfect" for him. He loves her "perfectionist tendencies and her lack of criminal taint.
Oh... but some of her best writing is in the development of the charismatic and evil spell binder, Vasilie the younger Serbian Markovic brother. The heir apparent to the Markovic crime family.
"Looking at him was the same as staring at the sun . He was scorching . Beautiful . Fascinating , but I couldn’t do it for too long or I’d risk permanent damage ." - Oksana
"He was violently beautiful." - Oksana
"Should it have bothered me that he was the most attractive when he looked evil?" - Oksana
The way he speaks to us through his thoughts, emotions and actions has the reader intensely fascinated and feeling guilty even from falling in love with his devilish and dirty ways.
With Oksana the female protagonist, here again, Ms. Sloane creates a fascinating character with her own agenda from the rival Russian crime family. Much of the intrigue of the storyline comes from the driving agenda of this unwanted illegitimate daughter who has killed a man before her virginity was even taken. The oddly beautiful love story of Vasilie and Oksana adds layers of intensity and meaning to each character.
I cannot heap enough praise on this author and her unique skill with the hawt, hot, hoooot, oh so hot, driving, pulsing, breathing off the page erotic scenes. The words, exclamations, the pacing and descriptions move the reader. It is a rare gift. Her characters live for the reader in their mind long after the reading is done. Truly a value in pleasure just one click away!

We met Vasilije in Sordid and I was curious about his story. I figured out fairly quickly that he’s not the bad guy he wants everyone to believe he is.Read more
