Heat Rating - 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Live-in tutor wanted for four-year-old. Must be willing to relocate to a remote mountain estate. $3K/week cash.
On the run from ruthless killers, I’m down to ten bucks in my wallet and a half-tank of gas in my ancient car when I spot the ad. The job sounds like the answer to my prayers, but there’s a catch.
The child’s father is the most beautiful, most dangerous man I’ve ever met.
Darkly seductive and filthy rich, Nikolai Molotov is a tantalizing mystery, a lethally alluring contradiction. Bruised knuckles and tailored suits, tender endearments and dirty promises—my new employer draws me in like a magnet, even as my instincts scream for me to run.
I should’ve heeded them… because I’m not the only one with secrets.
My safe haven just might be the devil’s lair, and once he’s claimed me, it will be too late to run.

Overall Opinion :
My next dark dose from my fav author is here!! I love this book so freaking much. It wasn't as dark as Julian's book but Nikolai still had that mysterious air and personality about him like Julian. From the beginning to the end of this book, something tells me that the next book will be a tad darker, let's wait and watch!
The book was somewhere between a contemporary and dark romance read for me. Apart from Nikolai's character, the best thing that I found about this book was Slava. He was the cutest little character ever and his scenes with nikolai had me swooning so bad! They both were cute and I loved every scene in which that little boy made an appearance. Chloe was a good character too. The book was a cliff hanger and I am sure that we will get all our answers in the next book!
I would deti recommend this book to all the Anna Zaires fans. If you are reading this book , expecting to read a very dark Romance, then this one is not it but I think you guys might like this book as a light dark romance read!
