To escape a debt owed to the mob, mixed martial artist Zel Tesla agrees to one final match with one of his league’s most notorious fighters. If he wins, he’ll clear the debts he incurred trying to save his young son’s life and earn his freedom.
But one chance encounter with a luscious burlesque performer in Vegas threatens all those carefully laid plans…
Ten years ago, Sara Contreras fled Houston with the help of her mobbed-up friends. Since barely escaping with her life, she’s built a multi-million dollar empire, but she’s always looking over her shoulder, wondering if the dark, dangerous secret she left behind in Houston is going to catch up with her.
When Sara’s past threatens everything Zel has worked so hard to achieve, she has to make a painful choice. She can sacrifice her love for Zel and let him go—or she can fight for him, facing the secret that nearly buried her back in Houston and the loan shark who owns them both.
Great book 📚
This was a great story, please bring kostya back for purchase! As a vivid reader and a huge fan of your books especially the Russian ones I enjoy reading everyone's story and would love for you to continue on the series!!!
Originally this book came with the book Alexei I remember when I bought it and now it's not what happened to it
If there wasn't a happily ever after and the fact that I get tidbits of the other Russian Protector series characters I would stop reading this author. She is constantly having the heroines make dumb decisions and then the hero's take the blame for those dumb decisions and the heroine never understands the danger she creates. Ms. Rivera is also always having the heroines make the heros feel bad for basically taking care of the trouble they caused! There are so many ways how the heroine can stay strong and help the hero along in these stories only Ms. Rivera would like to continue and set up the heroines of doing no wrong and judgy and the heros taking all the heat for them... anyway, it's a good read and I of course will continue to buy into the series. I just wish she would create a heroine who understands the world enough to accept what from the beginning what they are getting into and quite making the heros out to be wimps in the end.
